After another successful year for the Red Bull Music Academy, making waves in Tokyo a couple of months ago, they announce that for 2015 Paris will host RBMA.

16 years of globe-trotting have seen RBMA stop off in Madrid, New York City, London, and Cape Town; with a long, illustrious history in fashion, art, music, literature and progressive philosophy, Paris seems perfect for the next one.

Add to the equation Teki Latex and his Sound Pellegrino label, Mr. Oizo, Ed Banger Records, Daft Punk, not to mention a vibrant, always-active nightlife that birthed "the French touch", and it's the optimum concoction for the forward-thinking academy. Paris also gave us the weird, theremin-like instrument, the ondes Martenot.

Applications will be available in January 2015 at

For now, let's enjoy Mr. Oizo's collaboration with Uffie on his 2008/9 album, Lambs Anger.
