For the third consecutive year, Red Bull Music Academy presented its stellar stage at Berlin's Mauerpark, in conjunction with Fête de la Musique. This year’s lineup featured a special showcase by Academy alum and acclaimed producer Hudson Mohawke, playing a live set with band as well as back-to-back with DJ, superproducer and former Academy lecturer Mark Ronson.
With HudMo’s long-awaited sophomore solo LP Lantern dropping on Warp the week before, this Berlin gig was bound to be a special occasion, particularly since he brought his live band to Germany for the very first time. Earl Sweatshirt added some shock-value raps to the plate, while disco-not-disco troubadour Kindness takes his dislocated dancefloor stylings live to the Mauerpark stage. LA-via-Berlin’s Academy alum Robot Koch rounded off the lineup, with his signature organic/futuristic beats.
