Red Bull Music Academy, the incubator program of music workshops and lectures, is hosting a series of club nights around Australia this month, including a free party at GoodGod Small Club this Thursday July 4 headlined by Arabian Prince.
As a founding member of N.W.A. (with Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren and DJ Yella), Arabian Prince participated in the birth of the gangsta rap genre and cut electro classics like ‘Something 2 Dance 2’, ‘Panic Zone’ and ‘Dope Man’. As a producer he cut the classic ‘Supersonic’ for JJ Fad (that was reworked by Fergie in 2007) and a slew of other hits on Dream Team Records and Macola, while as Professor X he extended his electro legacy with 12s ‘Saga’ and ‘Statix’ on iconic labels like Techno Kut, Street Dance and Clone. Would-be dancers can ensure your attendance at this Thursday’s festivities merely by clicking ‘attending’ through the Facebook event, then all you have to do is turn up at8pm with your dancing shoes. If you’re feeling antisocial or just can’t attend for whatever reason, you can take some consolation in the fact that the party will be recorded and broadcast on RBMA Radio.Write a Letter to the Editor
