Red Bull MP Embassy

Red Bull MP Embassy is a unique event that will showcase live performances by renowned drum machine music producers Araabmuzik, Jeremy Ellis and Party Supplies.

The event will visit Portland’s Bossanova Ballroom on November 16 and The Crocodile in Seattle on November 17, and be hosted by will be hosted by Bukue One at both stops.

The drum machine (a.k.a. MPC) is an electronic musical instrument with multiple drum pads, each designed to cue a pre-programmed sound when hit. Performers on an MPC are able to simultaneously produce rapid, rhythmic drum patterns as well as melodies using various samples.

Once a tool only seen in hip-hop studios, as of late several performers have taken this instrument out of the studio and onto the stage where they can sequence and manipulate sounds to create live on-the-spot tracks. The result is an awe-inspiring display of high-energy showmanship. This unique “hands-on” talent is a refreshing welcome back to truly live performances in the age of Serato, dicers and other automated DJ programs.

Red Bull MP Embassy will challenge the typically lone-wolf producers to collaborate on creating an innovative, live music performance. The show format takes each producer through a series of different challenges designed to not only take them out of their comfort zone, but to aid them in creating a musical conversation.

In round one, the producers will showcase their best original music. Round two will feature all three producers creating their own personal track using a pallet of sounds given to all three. For the third and final round, Araabmuzik, Jeremy Ellis and Party Supplies will collectively come together to build one unique track.
