2020欧洲杯体育线上投注. It launches today on Red Bull TV and , and follows multiple musicians from different countries and different musical backgrounds who have never met, as they collaborate to create a hit song.

2020欧洲杯体育线上投注The five-episode arc, which began shooting last June (but seems perfectly suited for these times), will feature different artists every week from Austria, the U.K., Japan, Australia, the Netherlands, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and South Korea, as they provide a glimpse into the creative process of music creation in the digital age.

Episode one begins with the U.K.’s DJ Q as he leads Japan’s Tofubeats and the Netherlands’ Gaidaa, as the latter two embark on their first time creating a U.K. Garage track.

“The fact that Tofubeats and Gaidaa weren’t directly from the U.K. Garage scene was really exciting,” DJ Q tells Fast Company2020欧洲杯体育线上投注. “Normally, when artists are familiar with something, they approach it in a way which is expected, whether that be on purpose or just force of habit. With them both not being from the scene, it means they would take whatever idea I sent across with fresh ears, and that usually means fresh ideas that aren’t conventional to the genre.”

2020欧洲杯体育线上投注Both Gaidaa and Tofubeats had a short amount of time to make the track, but they figured out a remote working process that led to the creation of a special product, which goes to underscore the power of talent and a good Wi-Fi connection.
