MONDAY 9TH NOVEMBER: STUDIO SCIENCE WITH DISCLOSURE
The Lawrence brothers will be sharing their production secrets and talking through the gear they used to make their recent Number 1 hit album, Caracal. 100 fans will have the opportunity to be part of this intimate talk via a ballot system, which will go live on 2nd November.
TUESDAY 10TH NOVEMBER: RAISE THE BAR
Over the last five years, the studios has seen most of UK grime's royalty pass through its doors: Kano, Wiley, BBK, Novelist, Fekky... the list goes on. Now Red Bull Studios is giving the public a turn to guest on a unique collaboration, created by renowned producer Zdot, who has recently worked with Stormzy, Lady Leshurr and Bugzy Malone. On 2nd November, Zdot will upload his instrumental to the Red Bull site for burgeoning MCs to script to. From 4pm on 10th November, the vocal booth will be open for rising stars to come and prove themselves. Entries all get a 10 minute slot, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Zdot will then select his top 5 entries and produce a full track, to be released online by Red Bull Studios London.
WEDNESDAY 11TH NOVEMBER: LOCK IN
Whether it's Two Bears with a choir, Kano with an orchestra, Sam Smith recording vocals for Disclosure or Wild Beasts filming amidst a fake jungle in the live room, Red Bull Studios has pretty much seen it all over the last five years. On Wednesday 11th, Red Bull Studios will be teaming up with The 405 to offer one lucky artist the chance to have a day in the state-of-the-art studio with an expert team around them. All entrants have to do is tweet @The405 with a link to their music and the #RedBullStudiosLockIn hashtag and it could be theirs for the day.
THURSDAY 12TH NOVEMBER: MAKING MUSIC LOOK GOOD
Grammy nominated singer-songwriter MNEK will enter the studio with Studio Moross (a creative design studio focusing on art direction, branding, print and moving image set up by graphic artist and art director Kate Moross) for a 24 hour challenge. Starting at 7pm on Wednesday, MNEK and Moross will have a whirlwind day to create a track from start to finish - to write, record and deliver content to go alongside it. The 24 hours will culminate in a panel discussion on Thursday with guests including Kate Moross to discuss the creative process behind recording and releasing music. Those attending will be the first - and potentially the only - people to witness this unique creative project by MNEK. Tickets to the panel talk will be available to the public via a ballot from 2nd November.
