    Diggin’ In The Carts is a new series from Red Bull Music Academy about the untold story behind the most influential music to come out of Japan. For many of us, the music of video games played more in our households growing up than any other form of music. Diggin’ In The Carts is about unearthing the men and women who inspired an entire generation while arguably creating Japan’s biggest musical export to the world. The series will include six episodes about some of the greatest composers of the 8-bit and 16-bit era of video game music.

    Over six episodes Diggin’ In The Carts shines a spotlight on the composers who created a style of music that has had an immense impact on modern pop culture. From the personal studios of these legendary composers, to the concert halls of Japan where symphony orchestras are performing their compositions to sold-out crowds today – the series will document how the music of video games was created, what inspired it, and how it evolved into its own cultural phenomenon. Peppered with commentary from some of modern music’s finest DJ’s, musicians and electronic producers from around the world, the documentary also shows the influence these Japanese composers had on the world – and the world of music.

    Watch the first episode on on September 04. Meanwhile, check out the trailer below.

    Besides giving you the best of Hip-Hop, going from the old to the new, from the classics and back again, Pass the Dutch also provides you with the corresponding videos on two large screens. SP is a Dutch authority on visual DJ’ing, cutting and juggling videos instead of just the music. This night also marks the return of DJ Edzon, bringing that vinyl sound back to Cologne. Alongside these two, Germanys own DJ B. Ariston will hold it down on the decks as well, and last but not least MC Melodee on host duties.

    Staatliches Bauhaus was an art school in Germany famed for the radical approach to design it publicized and taught. Bauhaus operated from 1919 to 1933, founded with the idea of creating a “total” work of art in which all arts, including architecture, would eventually be united as one. The Bauhaus style would shape up to become one of the most influential currents in modern design, Modernist architecture, art, design and architectural education, laying down a blueprint for future art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design and typography.

    Many Bauhaus-members were as astute writers and theorists as they were artists, but some of their most important texts have gone out of print or become otherwise very difficult and/or expensive to come across. France’s Bibliotheque Kandinsky has recently digitized a series of seminal art books by Bauhaus artists and thinkers, making high-quality digital scans of some rare manuscripts freely available to the public. This is a very important and much appreciated milestone in the digitalization of essential but hard-to-get art publications for public use. Dive into it HERE.

    I got put on to Smiso bka Okmalumkoolkat whilst visiting South Africa a few years ago, then operating as a member of Dirty Paraffin. Soon after he created quite a ruckus appearing extensively on producer LV’s Sebenza EP released on the Hyperdub label. Now he’s back with Cid Rim (Affine/LuckyMe) and The Clonious (Affine/Ubiquity) constructing the Holy Oxygen EP, a logical shared space between kwaito, grime, juke and experimental Hip-Hop. Peep the videos below and cop the EP HERE.
