Pete Reilly (Soul Jazz) Interview

I was down at Red Bull Music Academy headquarters in London last night, as I heard they had free beer, Strada pizza and a table tennis table. Sold! Luckily they also were doing a little promo evening for the imminent Culture Clash party (check the link for details- it’s pretty awesome) and I knew that […]

Red Bull Music Academy Radio

I don’t much like posting other people’s content on Heads Down, but I make an exception for these dudes. As loads of you will be aware, I worked on the Red Bull Music Academy earlier this year in London, which was a fantastic experience. The Academy is a rare example of a superbrand investing in […]

Daniel Wang Interview

As you may or may not recall, Heads Down was a key partner at this year’s Red Bull Music Academy. This was a total coup, as it gave/gives me access to an Aladdin’s cave of video footage from the last ten years of the Academy. Here’s a wee edit I did of the Danny Wang […]

RBMA Moodymann Roller Disco film

I was absolutely gutted I couldn’t go to this (I had to DJ that night, predictably) as it looks like it was another no-holds-barred Red Bull Music Academy scene stealer. Everyone I know who was there had an amazing time; I’m not surprised if this film is anything to go by. Damn you all! Damn […]

Moodymann Lecture (RBMA)

Now, I don’t usually post stuff that I didn’t have a hand in making, but this is different. This is, quite possibly the greatest Red Bull Music Academy lecture ever, so damn right I’m going to put it up on Heads Down. Moodymann aka Kenny Dixon Jr doesn’t do press, but it seems that when […]

Trevor Jackson Interview

Recently I had a quick word or two with a flu-ridden, jet-lagged and subsequently irascible Trevor Jackson at the Red Bull Music Academy. The dude looked like he wanted out, but kindly put up with my weirdly pitched questions and inane banter nevertheless. Kudos, as they say in Nerdsville. By the way, I strongly recommend […]

Moodymann & Horse Meat Disco Roller Disco

I have two tickets to give away to this (frankly) awesome-looking Red Bull Music Academy night at the Renaissance Rooms in South (I know I know!) London this Thursday night. Moodymann‘s a longtime Roller Disco supporter/instigator, and he’s repping it hard this week: he’s brought his finest skater/dancers with him from Detroit and has the […]

James Pants Interview

James Pants makes me want to make more music, period. His productions have a level of joie de vivre and straight joyfulness that most music makers I know would give their left testicle (or ovary for that matter) to maintain. He wears his influences on his sleeve: post punk, disco, hip-hop and rock all get […]
