back in 2007, i had the somewhat surreal pleasure of hosting three red bull music academy information sessions in toronto, vancouver, and montreal. live on stage, i conducted a series of hour-long interviews w/ jurassic 5 DJ/producer cut chemist, soul-jazz drum icon bernard purdie, and electronic music producer/DJ tiga. while i still have conflicted feelings about corporate sponsorship of music and culture, the RBMA has endured as an incredibly loving and informative project for all involved, bringing together generations of musicians, artists, creators, journalists, students, fans (and documented as an invaluable resource). here is a recent link to a red bull lecture w/ UK reggae champion/DJ david rodigan. listen to the veteran broadcaster and sound clash supremo as he infectiously shares his lifelong passion w/ host benji B and an engaged studio audience. inspirational material (free of charge courtesy of red bull)... PEACE
