RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY'S RBMA RADIO has re-launched as a 24-hour linear broadcasting service with programming from six continents, airing local music scenes from across the world. Tune in now at rbmaradio.com, or download the app for iOS and ANDROID phones.
RBMA RADIO features everyone from artists like tUnE-yArDs, EARL SWEATSHIRT, KINDNESS, CHELSEA WOLFE, DAM-FUNK, MIXpak and TEKLIFE to music journalists and longtime ACADEMY team members like VIVIAN HOST and SHAWN REYNALDO, hip-hop scholar ANDREW NOZ (COCAINE BLUNTS), FROSTY (DUBLAB) and SAM HOCKLEY-SMITH (N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE, THE FADER).
Among the 40-plus new programs airing on RBMA RADIO are "Counter Intelligence," which gets the stories behind some of the most iconic record stores straight from the personalities who run them; "Music In Film," a deep dive into the world of film scores with the extraordinary composer BRIAN REITZELL; and "UNITED STATES of Bass," celebrating bass-music pioneers from across AMERICA – from DETROIT ghettotech to ATLANTA trap and MIAMI bass.
RBMA RADIO also zeroes in on local scenes in four key U.S. cities: "The Slice" profiles the sounds that are shaping NEW YORK CITY; "Bizarre Ride" cruises through the freeway-ready funk, blistering gangsta rap and rampaging guitar rock of L.A.; "Cruisin' in the ATL" meets ATLANTA's hottest artists and blasts the latest in SOUTHERN rap; and "Deepest Dish" spotlights some of the brightest minds in CHICAGO music. For a more global perspective, "Scenery" beams out daily reports on the local music scenes in cities as far-flung as CAIRO, NAIROBI, SAO PAOLO, SHANGHAI and TOKYO.
