Starting  in 1998, The Red Bull Music Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the years.
Back in 2016 at the New York, Red Bull Music Academy sat down with three beatmakers from hip hop’s biggest hit-making city Atlanta. ATL’s Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital and Zaytoven appeared at Red Bull Studios New York to discuss their early influences and breakout hits, the rise of trap, the producer drop/tags, and their approach to sampling and collaboration. Their beats include work for artists Future, Drake, Migos, iLoveMakonnen and tons more.
