Big up the homie Scuba for sending me this pic and letting me know my name was mentioned in the incredible new RBMA For The Record book (as “Justin Green”, my government)! Red Bull Music Academy is one of the best forces in the modern music scene and it’s been an honor to work with them over the years, so seeing something like this is just the icing on the cake.
Anyway, you should probably check it out. Okayplayer called it their #1 must buy Black Friday item a few weeks back and said this, “1. For The Record coffee table book from Red Bull Music Academy: You are already familiar, perhaps, with Red Bull Music Academy’s steez. They have now translated that steez into a deluxe coffee table book: “a collection of conversations between 36 of music’s true masterminds.” That list happens to include a who’s who of music-creators we are actively obsessed with here at OKP, including (but not limited to Erykah Badu, Nile Rodgers, Metro Area, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Just Blaze, Buraka Som Sistema, Sly & Robbie, Paul Riser (of Motown)…& more! For The Record went on sale Monday in the U.S. for $39.95 in certain specialty bookstores, music shops and in the Gestalten online shop.”
P.S. RBMA 2014 is right around the corner, head over to RedBullMusicAcademy.com to get more info on the 2014 Academy in Tokyo, Japan!
