LIVE FEED: RED BULL BEAT-SUITE MELBOURNE – STREAMING LIVE ! FEAT. Aloe Blacc, Ladi6, Australian Youth Orchestra, Galapagoose Monome, Amin Payne, DJ Perplex, Scratch22


RED BULL BEAT SUITE MELBOURNE – STREAMING ! FEAT. Aloe Blacc (US)  vocals Ladi6 (NZ)  vocals / MC Tamil Rogeon  composer  Members of The Australian Youth Orchestra  strings Galapagoose  Monome, sampling drum machine Amin Payne  sampler, drum machine DJ Perplex (3 x Aus DMC Champion)  turntables, effects Scratch22 (NZ)  turntables, samplers, effects

Red Bull Beat Suite is set to smash every conceived musical boundary – creating an entirely original, never-before-heard musical exploration, mixing together the nation’s best beat makers, musicians from the Australian Youth Orchestra as well as special guest vocalists including US soul singer, Aloe Blacc who will all feature on the same stage for two shows only on Saturday 12th May, at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

This very special event will be an orchestral exploration of the last 20 years of electronic and beat music combining two diverse musical worlds, setting a musical precedent by bringing the contemporary and classical worlds together on the one stage for the very first time in Australia.

Fans can expect to hear Australia’s best beat makers including two turntablists, a 15 piece orchestra, bass player, percussionist plus the hottest guest vocalists to produce a show like never before. The show will feature the talent of Ladi6, DJ Perplex, Amin Payne, Scratch 22 and Galapagoose. This innovative musical mash up will be cast under the intrepid direction of Australia’s own maestro and composer, Tamil Rogeon, who is charged with conducting a bunch of people who quite frankly, don’t belong in the same room – let alone the same stage! Red Bull Beat Suite is the creation of curator and creative director of the event, Kano Hollamby.

Red Bull Beat Suite is a rare opportunity to push the envelope and drive forth innovation by fusing together cultures that would normally play in very different playgrounds. The event will provide opportunities for the young guns of classical music to work with those from a hip hop and electronic music background – an unexpected collaboration with mind-blowing results.

Utilising their own award winning 3d projection mapping technologies, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS studios will create a never before seen interactive visual display to accompany this cutting edge performance.

Red Bull Beat Suite will debut at the stunning and musically paramount Melbourne Recital Centre, which is excited to be part of this exciting fusion – be the first to witness this cutting edge musical experiment.

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Red Bull Beat Suite is a drawing together of cultures which is as ambitious as it is thrilling. Take the nation’s best beat makers, put them on stage with the Australian Youth Orchestra, throw in US soul singer and hip hop luminary Aloe Blacc plus special guest singers and musicians, and cast them under the intrepid direction of The Raah Project’s Tamil Rogeon.

Red Bull Beat Suite is homage to the last 20 years of urban beats and electronic music genres, told by Australia’s and the world’s most cutting edge musicians, producers and vocalists through a ‘mix tape’ of orchestra, turntables and live beats.

Adding to the experience, Melbourne’s own and world renown ENESS will create a never before seen interactive visual display, utilising their own award winning 3D projection mapping technologies.

Public Enemy – He Got Game (1998) Vs Buffalo Springfiled – For What Its Worth (1967)


Public Enemy in fine form as usual on the title track for 1998 Spike Lee film “He Got Game “, they went one better than just sampling a hook for this one. Rather than jack the samples of the 1967 Buffalo Springfield classic protest song  “For What Its Worth”, they actually brought in Stephen Arthur Stills the man who originally wrote and played guitar on the song to feature on their take of his classic some 30 years later.

The #1 Hip Hop group of all time featuring a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer & one greatest guitarists ever is a creative match up that put out  one hell of a tune. A track that stood the test of time to become one of the most original sounding PE tracks to date.  Also props to PE for pulling off a collaboration that I don’t think too many other rap groups and pull off to be honest.
