Was that the quote from Training Day?? My memory might be failing me again. But regardless, here-we-go.
Some of you across Canada might recall what was an absolutely landmark tour in 2009. RBMA presented a tour featuring Flying Lotus and myself, criss crossing across this vast country of ours to get ppl to know and learn about the Red Bull Music Academy. Well, it worked. A record # of Canadians applied and we were able to have 4 brilliant participants rep in London 2010.
As some of you now know, the next Red Bull Music Academy is taking place in the land of the rising sun: JAPAN. So now, in 2011, we are embarking on the same journey, same goals but a new crew: Destination TOKYO will feature 4 of the brightest stars in Canada:
Ango (RBMA 2010)
Lunice (RBMA 2010)
As well as NAUTILUSS on select dates. Check back for more deets.
Of course, we will be having Academy lectures before every event so we can talk all things RBMA and essentially prepare you for the application process. So if the RBMA is something that sounds like it's for you, you need to come to the lecture. They'll provide all the information you'll need to apply and you'll be able to address any questions you may have then.
Of course, each lecture will climax with the soirée and will feature the four afore mentioned. You need to be there.
