Red Bull Music Academy Presents xxxy India Tour
30 September 2015
After bringing the likes of Kode9, Hudson Mohawke and Modeselektor to India over the course of two years, Red Bull Music Academy is back with cutting edge producer and selector – xxxy. The Manchester based artist will be playing for audiences in Pune, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore between 24 and 31 October.
xxxy is known for his forward thinking manipulations of house, techno and garage. The artist, known to his peers as Rupert Taylor, caught the attention of RBMA early on after the release of his debut production ‘You Always Start It’. He was then selected as one of the 60 participants for the academy’s 2011 Madrid edition.
"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.” - xxxy
One year later, RBMA listed xxxy as the “fourth best DJ in the world” – no small feat for a still budding musician. His distinct take on modern dance music has earned him praise from a number of popular music mags like Resident Advisor, Fact, Dummy, XLR8R and Pitchfork – which picked his 2011 single ‘Ordinary Things’ as best new track upon its release.
