      Erykah Badu needs little introduction. Her seminal works like 'Baduizm' and the 'New AmErykah' series have successively upped the ante in terms of what can be done within the soul spectrum. Erykah fuses cosmic b-girl bravado with the forward-thinking sounds of producers like the Soulquarians, Madlib, and more recently, Academy grad Flying Lotus, to create a sonically varied body of work – selling millions of albums in the process. She also heads up her own record label, Control FreaQ, and has even been caught on the ones and twos recently, under her moniker DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown. Watch her tell the story to Eothen 'Egon' Alapatt at the Red Bull Music Academy 2011 in Madrid.

Watch as he speaks on doing what you love first and foremost, and a couple tricks of the trade.

          With a record catalog long enough to fill an encyclopedia, Mannie Fresh has basically been the sound of New Orleans hip hop for the past 25 years: producing hits for Nola staples like Lil Wayne, Juvenile, BG, Big Tymers, and bounce queen Cheeky Blakk among others. In addition, his marching drum snare rolls and 808-heavy production trademarks have been picked up on and incorporated in the dirty south canon at large. In this lecture, hosted by Cocaineblunts' Andrew Noz, he touches on everything from his humble beginnings with local MC, Gregory D, to the Cash Money heydays, and his more recent approach to DJing and production.

                Whether David Kennedy goes by his curious handle Ramadanman or the more recent Pearson Sound moniker, his unique and very modern amalgamation of bass music, house, garage and techno has made him one of the UK’s most talked-about producers. His talents have earned him a FabricLive release, as well as singles on Hemlock, Soul Jazz, Aus Music and Swamp 81 to add to those on his own Hessle Audio imprint. In this session he talks about his musical upbringing, teenage demos, and why sometimes less is more when it comes to getting music out there.

                  Andrew Weatherall has worn a lot of hats in his career: pop star producer, Balearic figurehead, trailblazing DJ, electronic experimentalist, peerless explorer of the minimal techno sound, rockabilly enthusiast, and the original remix champ. His history goes back to the beginning of the British acid house scene, to Shoom and Boy's Own. But it was through Primal Scream that Weatherall got his name indelibly marked in the history of pop culture: fusing narcotically challenged rock and the energy of early raves, he produced the band's generation-defining 'Screamadelica' album and went on to lend his signature remixing skills to other landmarks acts from My Bloody Valentine to St. Etienne. His collaborations with Keith Tenniswood (Two Lone Swordsmen) or Jagz Kooner and Gary Burns (Sabres Of Paradise) were only marginally less influential, whilst his more recent work has seen him take more and more inspiration from the rock 'n' roll music that he has harboured as a passion for all these years. Watch him in conversation with Emma Warren at the Red Bull Music Academy 2011 in Madrid.
