Just Blaze join The Doctor’s Orders once for the third year in a row for what is certain to be another road block session of real Hip-Hop. As one of the most creative forces in the game Just Blaze cut his teeth in the late 90’s creating underground bangers for the likes of Buckshot. His distinctive sound soon caught the ear of the biggest players in the game and he soon had beats featured on albums for the likes of Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Big Pun & Jadakiss. It was however as an in house producer with Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella records that he really made waves producing instant classics for Kanye West, Cam’ron, Freeway, Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel and of Jay-Z who has featured Just Blaze beats on 6 of his last 7 albums, all of which have gone platinum! Most recently he has been working with the hottest names in the game in the shape of Drake, Jay Electronica and upping his profile as the host of ‘Masters of The Mix’.
The Jersey born producer, known as the Megatron Don, has a distinctive soul drenched sound that bangs so hard that it rocks dance-floors across the globe. He will no doubt be treating a packed house to a fantastic mix of his own productions and the influences behind them in his only UK show of 2012.
On Thursday 24th May Red Bull Music Academy and FABRICLIVE present Ram Jam – a night of explosive bass with gentleman rudeboy David Rodigan MBE at the helm. Bringing his coveted box of world-smashing dubplate specials and his inimitable command of the mic, expect a masterclass in crowd control-meets-dancefloor obliteration. Having cut his teeth playing youth clubs from the age of 15 and celebrating his 60th Birthday last year, Rodigan retains the glint in his eye, continues to destroy clubs and festival stages the world over, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Fiercely followed by a roster of dancehall and dub-flavoured special guests, many of whom regularly feature in Rodigan’s frenetic set, Ram Jam welcomes first lady of UKG Ms Dynamite, Birmingham’s own lover’s rock hero Bitty McLean, with dubstep Caspa, BBC Radio 1’s Toddla T and the UK’s number one bashment sound The Heatwave completing the bill.
But before the bass even begins rumbling through fabric’s cavernous floors, Red Bull Music Academy presents an intimate conversation with David Rodigan in the club’s VIP Room. Taking in a career spanning 40 years, Sir Ram Jam himself will be talking to a lucky few about his love of reggae and roots, complete with classic tales of clashes and roadblocks, his times in Jamaica, plus a chance to view never before seen photos and hear the dubplates that remain ingrained in reggae folklore. The conversation will be led and hosted by BBC Radio 1 host and long-time Academy team member, Benji B.
The conversation with David Rodigan, taking place from 8pm – 10pm, will be FREE subject to limited capacity. Those wishing to stay on for the main event should purchase a ticket in advance from www.fabriclondon.com which will be exchanged for a wristband on arrival.
This event forms part of Red Bull Music Academy’s busy year of lecture sessions, parties, live radio sessions, festival stages and general awesomeness ahead of the 15th annual Academy taking place in New York this Autumn.
For those unable to attend, the party will be recorded for Red Bull Music Academy Radio, so you’ll be able to listen back at www.redbullmusicacademyradio.com at your leisure. To get fired up, check out the mix Toddla T and Rodigan laid down for Red Bull Music Academy last year http://redbullmusicacademyradio.com/shows/3777/
