Louis Baker has been one of the lucky
bunch to be hand-picked to perform on the SonarDôme
“To be invited to Sonar is my total privilege. I can’t wait to catch up with my friends from the Red Bull Music Academy, and to witness world class live electronic music,” says Baker.
Sónar’s ethos of searching out, eclectic future-leaning talent has always jibed perfectly with Red Bull Music Academy’s aesthetic. This year, the Academy will present a lineup of visionary artists hailing from five continents, many of them recent participants at the 15th anniversary edition of the Red Bull Music Academy in NYC. The SonarDôme stage be joined over the course of three sun-soaked days at Plaça d' Espanya by the likes of LA funk legend Dâm-Funk, BBC Radio 1 DJ T. Williams, Young Turks’ emotional center Koreless, rising star Sinjin Hawke, in addition to Louis Baker and fellow 2013 Academy graduates Throwing Snow, Rudi Zygadlo, Suzanne Kraft, LOVE CULT, Emufucka, Trancemicsoul, Leo Aldrey, Astroboyz, Harald Björk, De La Montagne, Jolly Mare and more.
The Red Bull Music Academy has been bringing
up-and-coming musicians together with those who paved the
way for more than 15 years. Touching down in a new
metropolis each year the Academy is a world-travelling
series of mu¬sic workshops and festivals where a group of
producers, vocal¬ists, DJs and instrumentalists from around
the world come together for two weeks’ worth of
record¬ing sessions, lectures by musical luminaries and
performances. Further, the Academy has extended its
curatorial touch to the online radio station, RBMA
Radio, and to festival stages and signature events on
every continent. The Academy’s upcoming Tokyo edition is
set to kick off in October.
