Red Bull Music Academy presents the debut Indian tour of xxxy

MUMBAI: Red Bull Music Academy, the vanguard of forward-thinking music worldwide, will introduce Indian fans to the sounds of cutting edge house, techno and garage manipulating producer and selector, xxxy, this October.

Over the past couple of years, RBMA has showcased prominent producers to the Indian audience, including Kode9, who toured India earlier this year, Benjamin Damage and Hudson Mohawke in 2014, and Modeselektor in 2013. xxxy, known to his peers as Rupert Taylor, continues this exceptional run, playing in five cities – Pune, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore from 24th to 31st October.

Says Taylor aka xxxy, “I had a fantastic couple of weeks at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid in 2011. The lectures were so inspiring I always wanted to run out of them at the end and straight into the studios to work with my fellow participants, including India’s Jivraj Singh, who is an incredible drummer. I firmly believe that my time at the Academy changed me as person and as a musician for the better. I am really looking forward to my debut tour in India and am delighted that I was asked to come and play.”

On the other hand Jivraj Singh aka Jiver said, “At the Red Bull Music Academy, the group of 30 very quickly becomes a bunch of resonant duos and trios. Rup and I did not have the most contact at the Academy but I distinctly remember that I was struck by what a badass he was. Over time, that has become a very serious and important component to what I personally like to bring to the musical situations I am in. Getting the job done with purpose, precision and without undue distracting fuss - that's how I perceived xxxy's music and way of being. It's going to be great to reconnect after all these years because, in an odd way, there is a nugget of Rupert in the musician I have become.”
