Red Bull Music Academy Presents: A Conversation with James Murphy
If anyone epitomizes New York’s history of punky electronic dance floor fusions, it’s James Murphy. Finding global acclaim with his tragi-comic observations in LCD Soundsystem, as well as starting the era-defining DFA label, James’ story is one of conquering the world against all odds. The Red Bull Music Academy invites you to hear it from the man himself.
