Ever heard of the Red Bull Studios? No? Well, here’s some inside info!
The Red Bull Studios are part of an international initiative to support musicians around the globe, with establishments in Tokyo, Sao Paulo, New York, Los Angeles, London, Cape Town, Berlin, Auckland, Paris and Amsterdam. Each of them has its own flair, style, equipment and very own - and extremely experienced - sound engineer.
Every country’s team can provide access and studio time for artists they wish to support or take under their wings. It’s not entirely how good an artist is, it’s more a case of how much potential they show. Going from folks that only have a laptop and 2 monitors to their disposal where they fiddle on once in a while, to well established masters of tweaking knobs and pushing faders. There’s top notch equipment that you can use. And we really do mean top notch! Analogue, instrumental or even digital, there’s everything a producer or musician can wish for. To make it even a little easier, each studio has a complete list of its assets on its own website. (go check it out if you have the time!). Korg MS-20, Roland Juno 60, Fenders, Maschine, Ableton, Logic, … You name it, they have it.
The Red Bull Elektropedia team tends to send out its Belgian talent to the studios in Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. Examples? We’ve had Oaktree working together with the Dutch neo-classical composer Pieter van Nooten. The result of this magical xenogamy was the amazing Encounter. The four headed band Felix Pallas was finally able to finetune the recording of their drums, under the guidance of sound engineer Guus Fluit (Floyd Recordings). The result? Off the hook! Just have a listen to Rakata, which went viral in no-time. Our latest addition was Blu Samu, who teamed up with Antwerp based producers ToolBox and Louis to work their magic.
