Just putting up a quick little post for you this morning, my friends. Hope it is to your liking.

Actually, while I'm at it, I'll take this opportunity to throw in some monthly reminders.

1. To download the songs that we post, right-click then save link as. (sigh...Why do I have to repeat this so often?)

2. If you have the chance and/or the desire, show some love by either following us on Facebook, Twitter or Hype Machine.

And now, on with the show....

Red Bull Music Academy first appeared on my radar when they released AMAZING videos of lectures by a huge variety of producers, musicians and even rappers. Essentially, these are two hour lectures/q&a's, given to students at the academy.

Red Bull Music Academy accepts a very small number of applicants per year, a talented few who get to produce to their heart's content for a few weeks while being surrounded by industry veterans and top-of-the-line equipment. (Montreal's own Lunice was a graduate last year, by the way)

Check those out here. They're a great way to lose a few hours. A lot of insightful stuff in there.

Regardless, Red Bull Music Academy has actually started a radio program, Red Bull Music Academy Radio (Keep it simple, stupid) which features a lot of exclusive content and mixes from an extremely wide range of producers.

They've given us the go-ahead to give this brand new live mix of UK powerhouse Roska to you, so please enjoy it.

Look, it even comes with a pre-written blurb. How convenient, considering I'm bloody tired.

What better way to scoff a full English than with Roska's soulfully hyped show on Rinse FM every Tuesday brunch time? Bringing more bounce to the ounce than most, Roska's blend of house and UK funky is characterised by its rapidly struck drums and surging sub-bass. His switch from MC to producer and DJ has paid off, with Roska central to the latest of London's hyped-up home-grown scenes. Numerous remixes, including Zed Bias' classic Neighbourhood, plus a string of releases on his Roska Kicks & Snares label have confirmed his prominence. Here he graces the decks at Meet Factory in Prague. Say his name, say his name!

See you tomorrow for yet another Laid Back Sunday with Ye Olde Calibabarbarian. By the way, this just happens to be our 300th post. Sweeeeet, innit?
