RANDOMNESS: Red Bull Music Academy with MARCUS INTALEX

"Hailing from Burnley near Manchester, Marcus Intalex was on the spot when dance culture blew up at the Hacienda. Since then he's journeyed to bass extremes, been through the vaults of Detroit techno, and got to the essence of flavourful drum 'n' bass. His love of finding new music, and new old music, has served him well as a producer (solo and with projects such as M.I.S.T); as a record label head (Soul:R and Intalex Productions), and as a DJ. His advice? Even when hyping up the dancefloor, you should try to explore new territory, outside of safe & cosy genre definitions."

RANDOMNESS: Red Bull Music Academy with DBRIDGE

"When you meet him in daylight D-Bridge is a laidback and calm fellow. But at night he turns out to be the producer of the grittiest and grimiest tunes in drum 'n' bass. Based in London, D-Bridge has literally helped to give birth to to the scene with a couple of seminal jungle classics. At the legendary Metalheadz sessions he learned to appreciate the best of both worlds: energy through bass. As a pioneer who has shaped the course of drum 'n' bass, he lays out his precise views on the up’s and down’s of the scene. Luckily D-Bridge is not one of the many drum 'n' bass artists who flirted with the mainstream, fell off and has since never been seen again. Instead he stayed true to the music as the drum 'n' Bass scene changed into more diverse directions."

RANDOMNESS: Red Bull Music Academy with Zinc

"DJ Zinc may have named himself after a mineral, but he's always got lots of gems to share. Swept away by the acid house movement as a teen, Zinc rose to fame as a top DJ and producer from the advent of drum 'n' bass, and it's a position he has yet to relinquish. A globetrotting selecta and renowned producer via his own Bingo label, he watched the d 'n' b genre evolve from its house and old-school gene pool, grow through its ragga and hip hop-inflected phases, to the now-tangled web of styles that is today's bass music. As part of Ganja Kru (Parousia), he rolls with like-minded renegades Rude Bwoy Monty, DJ Hype and Pascal. He also bangs it out in collaboration with Dope Skillz on Hype's True Playaz imprint. Ever the innovator, Zinc toyed with tension with his LP Faster, a blazing LP which accelerated in bpm's with each track. He's also responsible for the Crack House parties, twisting his style to explore raw funky templates. Also a vital player in dubstep's continued march on the mainstream, when the beats roll like dis, you really have to Zinc on your feet!"

RANDOMNESS: Red Bull Music Academy with Fabio

"If you want to know about the drum and the bass, listen to Mr. Fabio. Having broken through in the late '80s playing funk and rare groove on London pirate station Phase One, he was somewhere towards the centre of pretty much any new movement in British electronic music for nearly a decade after. Popularising the super smooth liquid funk genre, the likes of Calibre and High Contrast must surely remember to send him a card every christmas. Anyone who listens to his weekly Radio 1 show with buddy Grooverider knows he hasn't got that husky a voice, yet he's still considered 'The Godfather'. Go figure."
