BROAD CASTING: JOE BATAAN & JAMES PANTS
On Thursday 11th June Red Bull Music Academy will be joining forces, once again, with Karen P‘s Broad Casting to bring you a night truly representative of The Academy. Celebrating the launch period for 2010 applications the night will see a unique collaboration between Stones Throw’s James Pants and Latin soul legend Joe Bataan to be recorded live and exclusively for Red Bull Music Academy Radio.
Unbelievably this will mark Joe Bataan‘s first EVER UK performance and he was James Pants‘ No.1 choice when asked of his perfect collaboration.
“Joe Bataan has got to be one the most on-point artists in the game, and someone I have a tremendous amount of respect for. Latin soul, salsa, disco, rap-o-clap-o, lowrider ballads, and funk with a career spanning forty years… How many people can pull that off!? I look forward to busting down some deadly cowbell for this show.” James Pants, April 2009
Both men have been guest lecturers at Red Bull Music Academy before – Joe Bataan in Melbourne and James Pants in Barcelona 2008. As artists from different generations, genres and parts of the world, coming together to create unique music, their collaboration is what both Broad Casting and the Red Bull Music Academy are all about and is set to be an historic and memorable evening at London’s Cargo.
A collaborative project across two generations of Hip-Hop, Willie Isz will also fit perfectly into the Broad Casting ethos. Jneiro Jarel, is a Red Bull Music Academy past-participant (also known as Shape of Broad Minds and Dr Who Dat), and has been cited as an influence by Mos Def and Flying Lotus. He’s currently working with TV On The Radio who also appear on the new Willie Isz album. Khujo Goodie is one quarter of the legendary Goodie Mob, which also includes Cee-Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley) and form part of The Dungeon Family along with the now stratospheric Outkast. That spaced out, soulful Atlanta inspired sound runs through the heart of what Willie Isz are all about, and a great addition that Lex have chosen Broad Casting as their UK launch party.
