The Red Bull Music Academy has the the indie artist's best friend, as well as the music fan's darling. But in the last few years, the labels may have become fanboys just as much.
The 4-5 yrs past have seen RBMA grads go on to much bigger and much more flourishing careers. Some well known, others lesser - but they've all had their own impact. The RBMA is a quasi farm team, and incubator of talent. So it was w/o question that the 2010 RBMA in London was going to be one of the most significant ones.
And if you were not able to watch the countless lectures, the near hourly updates on the website, or been privileged enough to be on their mailing list, they have now made the highly sought after compilation CD, Various Assets – Not For Sale: Red Bull Music Academy London 2010, available as a free download. Wow.
This is an opportunity to sample the RBMA's wares, and witness some starts in the making @ theirs beginnings. A Double CD, 38 tracks in total featuring past, present and future stars.
