INTERVIEW: The Red Bull Music Academy Interview: Jesse Boykins III and Nick Hook

by Winston "Stone" Ford


If you haven’t noticed recently, New York City has been taken over by something called the Red Bull Music Academy this month. But for those who are not in the know, some people are scratching their heads. What exactly is the Red Bull Music Academy?

Well, it’s a two week gathering of some of the best upcoming sounds in music. For the next fortnight they will have access to one of the best studios in the world to collaborate and compose working with each other as well as music industry legends such as Bootsy Collins and Questlove. While most of NYC won’t get to see the academy, we spoke with RBMA posterboys (and 2011 Madrid Academy alumni) Jesse Boykins III and Nick Hook who give us an inside look at what will be going down this month. Check it.
