Red Bull Music Academy Presents: Diggin’ in the Carts (Trailer)
RBMA has been splendid giving insight to producers and scenes who put out some of the most intriguing music. They have a documentary coming out, Diggin’ in the Carts, chronicling Japanese video game music, its the big-time composers, and the current-day producers who has been influenced by the synthesizer music.
More and more I dig into synthesizer-based, technology-exploring music (electronic music, I guess), the more I realize that interest in electronic sound and its infinite amount of dreamy textures come from my youth, filled with video game consumption. So I’m looking forward to this at both with an nostalgic eye and a very curious ear to how it shaped the present-day forward-thinkers — this doc features people like Flying Lotus, Kode 9, Joker, Fatima al Qadiri, Just Blaze and more.
The doc is a six-part series. The first episode premiers on Sept. 4 on the RBMA website. Check out more info from the academy there.
