Red Bull Music Academy with B+ and OB (All City)

David is taking part in the Red Bull Music Academy Workshop in Dublin with B+ and OB (All City Records) on Sat 19th March in Block T, Smithfield.
You can reserve a place at the RBMA Workshop by emailing or check out

Potential applicants (producers, instrumentalists, vocalists, and DJs) to the academy workshop will experience an evening where innovative musical figures share their own perspectives on life in the musical lane, offering advice and generally giving insight.

For his contribution David’s going to go through the story of a song from the moment of original inspiration through to writing and recording.  Joining him on the night will be Ex-RBMA participant, Olan O’Brien aka OB from All City Records. When Olan O’Brien (OB) and DJ Splyce opened All City in Dublin in 2001 to sell hip-hop tunes and graffiti supplies, O’Brien knew that he also wanted to start a label. A decade on, the shop is still thriving (unlike so many of its peers), and the All City record label is really going gangbusters.

If that wasn’t enough to whet your musical appetites, RBMA will also feature an exhibition of work from ex academy participant B+ (aka Brian Cross). Author of “Its Not about a Salary: Rap Race and Resistance in Los Angeles” Rolling Stone Music Book of the Year, the Limerick born photographer and painter will show an exhibition entitled GhostNotes: An exploration of the relationship of photography to music through 20 years of music photography, will run on both Saturday and Sunday (19th & 20th of March) which will be open to the public.

B+ will join the workshop as a speaker on Saturday evening, and he, along with David Kitt and other special guests, will play a special club night for Choice Cuts after the session in The Grand Social, 35 Lower Liffey Street. Doors 10pm, tickets €10.
