Following this year’s event in New York, it’s been recently announced that the next location for the Red Bull Music Academy will be Tokyo in October. Now in it’s fifteenth year, the series of live performances, lectures, screenings, and more specifically, workshops have previously thrown up some interesting collaborations from it’s time in major world cities such as Toronto, Madrid, London and Cape Town. Berlin duo UMA specifically formed to support electronic-psych artists Silver Apples in Madrid a couple of years ago, where one half of the duo was taking part in that year’s Academy, and the recent single ‘Vanity’ has got a remix from LuckyMe! affiliate Claude Speeed – who was also at that year’s Academy. The single is available direct from Seayou Records, and applications from prospective Tokyo participants are being accepted from January next year.
