RBMA Radio...This week

Tune into

Red Bull Music Academy Radio has mapped out a number of nice pieces this week, to provide the soundtrack for your chess games or mahjong, whatever you fancy. When it comes to music, it's horses for courses, so we've got something for every position. Guest DJs this week include Marc Mac (4 Hero, UK) with his strategically re-rubbed beats, plus a fluidly maneuvered set by Mark de Clive Lowe (Antipodean Records) and the best sounds in stereo from Ben Mono (Compost).

Make your move:

This week's show of the week:
Todd Osborn - 'Preset' (Spectral, Rephlex, Ann Arbor, USA)

Todd Osborne's sonix have echoed throughout the wider world, with a notable jack2jack connection point at his Dubplate Pressure record store in Detroit. From old-school-inspired Jungle, to Booty, to phreakin House and Techno from the vaults, Todd's Preset show chases the ghosts that were hidden in the machines - with the help of some friendly robot companions.

Other RBMA regular host shows to watch out for this week...

- Daz I Kue - 'Vinyl Love' (Bugz In The Attic, UK)
- Gerd Janson - 'Risky Business' (Running Back, RBMA, Germany)

RBMA Radio Guest Mix Of the week:
Marc Mac (4 Hero, Reinforced, UK)

Marc Mac is known for mining and elevating tons of influences such as Hip Hop, Jazz (and the back catalogues of America's most playful soul strategists), Breakbeats and Detroit's outerspace opuses. He left an indelible print on the evolution of electronic music with Dego (the other half of 4Hero), so don't miss this master's next move, across the board.

Besides our regular monthly shows, we've got miles of one-off guest mixes, tributes and interviews. Here are just a few to motor through on RBMA Radio over the next two weeks:

- Mark De Clive Love (Antipodean Records, NZ)
- Louie Vega (Masters At Work)
- Yam Who (UK)
- Ben Mono (Compost)
- Sumo (Heya Hifi, Sweden)

RBMA Podcast of the Week:
Ewan Pearson (Soma, Berlin)

Ewan knows that Juan is the Teacher, but he's also a man of letters himself, lecturing and writing when not recording for Glasgow's Soma Records. In this podcast he counsels to beware of the traps in the shady rooms of the music industry, particularly in the DJ and remix business where art and commerce meet.
