ACADEMY EDITION: Madrid, 2011 // Profile
DECIBEL SHOWCASE: Hyperdub Records – 9/25 @ the Crocodile
The sound of Red Bull Music Academy lecturer DJ Rashad and partner-in-crime DJ Spinn‘s frenetic 808 programming and deftly sliced R&B loops has turned into an epidemic in recent years, informing the trajectory of club music the world over. His skills behind the turntables, honed from years playing after-school footwork battles, provide the perfect soundtrack for adrenaline-fueled, 160 BPM dance mayhem.
After contributing his immense know-how to the esteemed Red Bull Music Academy Madrid in 2011, Rashad’s rapport with the new generation of musical trailblazers continues to grow. In March 2013, Rashad was enlisted for an EP release on Hyperdub – another step on the duo’s path to take the sound of Chicago’s juke movement worldwide.
