Last Friday, the dark SAT room was the setting for another stage of Red Bull Music Academy, making for a colorful evening. The night started with extreme frequencies and sharp melodies, wrapped up in the intense techno sound of Sendai, the belgian duo featuring Peter Van Hoesen. Canadian Nautiluss was next and mellowed things out quite a bit with his dubstep and techno downtempo, instantly creating a laid-back mood on the dance floor.
Then the crowd got electrified by the rythms of BNJMN. The genre-breaking bloke expertly transformed his techno into dubstep, adding his typical footprint in the process. The SAT light columns were lit up to the insane bass lines of the producer, adding to the pleasure of the crowd.
Kode9 wrapped up the evening with tracks from his Hyperdub label. His deep and dense dubstep pleased the crowd. The definitely underground sound of his set once again redefined the boundaries of bass music and gave the assistance a glimpse on the future of electronic music. Without a doubt, that evening with the Red Bull Music Academy showed what is best in terms of dubstep.
The very next day, Red Bull Music Academy moved to Place de la Paix for an afternoon of free and quality music. The Canadians Basic Soul Unit, DJ Champion and Danuel Tate kept the spirits up during the first part of the day. Then, the tech-house of KiNK, from Bulgaria and Jacob Korn, from Germany, put a final touch to this series, putting forward creativity, diversity and raw talent.
