The cast of lec­tur­ers and talk­ers at this year’s Red Bull Mu­sic Academy come from all walks of mu­si­cal life.

Mar­tyn Ware, for­merly of Hu­man League and Heaven 17 told how he made tracks such as Be­ing Boiled – “it still sounds like we were from Mars” – be­fore pro­duc­ing best-sell­ing records for Tina Turner and Ter­ence Trent D’Arby, then in­sti­gat­ing the sound de­sign and in­stal­la­tion project, Il­lus­tri­ous, with Era­sure’s Vince Clarke.

Hip-hop DJ and pro­ducer Pre­mier was also good value, rem­i­nisc­ing about his early days as Wax­mas­ter C and about the years be­fore hip-hop mu­sic ex­isted.

Dance­hall pi­o­neer King Jammy, Planet Rock pro­ducer Arthur Baker, indie dudes Bloc Party, Cana­dian elec­tronic act Ju­nior Boys, and Nordic psy­che­delic disco pro­ducer Prins Thomas are also lin­ing up to tell their tales.
