The 49-track album gathers seasoned and buzzing eccentrics from RBMA’s 2016 class in Montreal
Fresh off their annual NYC installation, RBMA (Red Bull Music Academy) is headed to Berlin in 2018. And in celebration of their next phase, the incubative institution has released a new edition of their Various Assets compilation, entirely recorded in their Montreal studio in 2016.
The expansive set wrangles 69 musicians (though the absence of Kaytranada and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis is worth noting, as they were amongst the marquee names on the program) for a genre-defying epic that proves their curatorial purpose beyond a reasonable doubt.
Various Assets features new compositions that feature bountiful contributions from Thundercat, as well as Just Blaze, Deradoorian, Mike Banks, Dorian Concept, Lucrecia Dalt, Matias Aguayo and plenty more names worth your acquaintance. Hear the full stream of RBMA’s Various Assets below and scroll on to peep Thundercat’s full slate of forthcoming tour dates.
