Madlib (DJ Set)
Festivities continue at Zukunft with a supreme crate-digging producer from California and one of Amsterdam’s most creative DJs.
Relentless beat wizard Madlib is back in Switzerland after many years. The production maestro, musician, and rapper has built a sprawling catalogue of music under several aliases and through beloved collaborations. He is the astrotravelling Quasimoto and the vintage jazz ensemble Yesterday’s New Quintet, one half of Madvillain (with MF Doom) and Jaylib (with the late J Dilla), and his rare samples have graced Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Anderson .Paak and countless others.
Cinnaman and Gray Chalk are both alumni of RBMA 2006, where they rubbed elbows with fellow participants Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc, Nina Kraviz and Daniel Brandt of Brandt Brauer Frick. A dexterous DJ/producer, Cinnaman is affiliated with global dance music institution Dekmantel and favors creative sets incorporating house, UK garage, and hip hop. Bern’s Gray Chalk will spark things up with his raw groove detours.
Upstairs at BAR 3000, RBMA 2018 participants Jacob Stoy and Nistra will dig in their crates for sound palettes of a different kind.
Following the success of its two previous installments, Red Bull Music Festival Zürich returns for a third consecutive year with five days of original programming featuring exceptional live performances, DJ sets, panel discussions and exclusive events held at unique venues and renowned clubs throughout the city.
