Red Bull Revolutions In Sound
To mark the 15th Anniversary of Red Bull Music Academy, we’re gearing-up for one of the biggest celebrations of UK club culture on the EDF Energy London Eye, bringing back Red Bull Revolutions in Sound on 14th November 2013. Taking over one of the capital’s most iconic landmarks, Red Bull brings thirty of the most legendary UK club nights of past and present together for one night, each hosting their own capsule for a 360° homage to the seminal players of, and contributors to, the landscape over the past 30 years.
The roster of capsule hosts, each having transformed the face of clubland in their own way, include The End, Bugged Out!, Fabric, Corsica Studios, Eagle London, London Warehouse Events, Gilles Peterson & Patrick Forge’s Talkin’ Loud & Saying Something, Jah Shaka, The Hydra, YoYo, pirate radio turned premier imprint Rinse, Metalheadz, Fac51The Haçienda, The Warehouse Project, Birmingham’s Rainbow, TwiceasNice, Cream, grime hotbeds Eskimo Dance and Sidewinder, techno institution Lost, Newcastle’s Shindig, Steve Strange’s original New Romantic haunt The Blitz Club, Danny Rampling’s acid house incubator Shoom, Glasgow’s Sub Club, Sheffield’s Jive Turkey, and Bristol’s Motion – an intimidating collection that sees almost every corner of dance culture covered.
Manning the decks, a swathe of over 50 of dance music’s elite will be standing to attention. Revolutionaries in their own right Richie Hawtin, Rudimental (DJ set), Skream, Erol Alkan, Todd Terry, Gilles Peterson, Ben UFO, Craig Richards, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Derrick May, Fabio & Grooverider, Seb Fontaine, Subb-An, Jah Shaka, Goldie, Derrick Carter, Boy Better Know, Steve Strange, DJ EZ, Danny Rampling, Sasha, Dusky, Mark Moore, Layo, Mr C, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, Red Bull Music Academy graduate Katy B, and Lily Allen are among the artists set to perform, representing the wealth and breadth of talent the UK’s club scene has spawned, incubated and hosted over the years.
The bill of club stalwarts will be joined by online TV outfit Boiler Room and concept programme Channel Four House Party. To top it off, a Silent Disco on ground level sees 2000 guests able to select which capsule they would like to tune into. As those in attendance dance through history in the skies, others can dive into the action online: a world first in live-streaming, all thirty capsules will be broadcast simultaneously on Channel4.com, and globally on Red Bull’s YouTube channel so fans across the globe can participate in this unique celebration.
