That's right. To promote the Red Bull Music Academy and it's application drive, a national tour has been locked featuring arguably one of it's hottest graduates, Flying Lotus.
Finally, the Canadian landscape will be host to FlyLo's gangster galactic goulash of beats and booming basslines. 92bpm was personally grinding away @ trying to make that happen for a min now, so this is very welcomed news.
Focus will be the Red Bull Music Academy and it's current application drive which started last month and will go until July 27th. The Academy for the unfamiliar, is the artist's ultimate dream. It's a 2 week retreat where the focus is the artistry as it should be: you and your music. More detailed info can be found here.
However, much of that will be discussed during the Red Bull Music Academy tour feat Flying Lotus w/ mymanhenri as opener on all dates. 92 bpm will be in the building.
Each tour dates will consist of:
★ a couch conversation with Flying Lotus in the classic Red Bull Music Academy format, which will also double as an info session where you'll be able to find out all you need to know about the Academy and the application process.
★ some of the dates will also comprise of a Ableton Live studio workshop led by FlyLo with a select few candidates.
★ and a night w/ Flying Lotus @ the helm, playing his marvelous electro-nice melodies, with mymanhenri as opener.
