CDR Tel Aviv (2008)
This was a unique British Council supported project where we took over to Tel Aviv BBE’s MC Ty who was with us in his writer capacity. We partnered with a midi school and got students to write beats and collaborate together on a track – Ty helped with lyrics, writing and arranging, and the final track was played at the CDR session that evening. How cool is that? We worked closely with local DJ collective the Botanika Crew, whom will be contributing to the Audio Insights spots on the website. We also worked with Polar Pair – who features on our burntprogress album ‘VA 2.1’. Being in Tel Aviv was an amazing experience – it wasn’t what it seemed. From the initial hostile entrance – we got searched which wasn’t pleasant – we soon discovered it was one of the most beautiful places we had ever been to.
