        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.

          The LCD Soundsystem frontman talks about some of his favorite music at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York. James Murphy almost singlehandedly brought back the cultural exchange between indie and dance music with his LCD Soundsystem, the attached DFA label, and cult singles like “Losing My Edge” and the Rapture’s “House Of Jealous Lovers.” As the leading man and lyricist of LCD Soundsystem, he has celebrated two Grammy nominations and received critical acclaim for the second LCD album, Sound of Silver. With LCD’s third album This Is Happening in 2010, Murphy announced the band’s retirement. Prior to that, Murphy went into film scoring (Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg) and established a name for himself as a DJ. A purveyor of disco and old-school-rooted house music, James loves the opportunity to spin and is even developing his own DJ rotary mixer.
