The cast of lecturers and talkers at this year’s Red Bull Music Academy come from all walks of musical life.

Martyn Ware, formerly of Human League and Heaven 17 told how he made tracks such as Being Boiled – “it still sounds like we were from Mars” – before producing best-selling records for Tina Turner and Terence Trent D’Arby, then instigating the sound design and installation project, Illustrious, with Erasure’s Vince Clarke.

Hip-hop DJ and producer Premier was also good value, reminiscing about his early days as Waxmaster C and about the years before hip-hop music existed.

Dancehall pioneer King Jammy, Planet Rock producer Arthur Baker, indie dudes Bloc Party, Canadian electronic act Junior Boys, and Nordic psychedelic disco producer Prins Thomas are also lining up to tell their tales.
