The archive, which has been shared ahead of RBMA's closure this week, features over 500 lectures

Red Bull Music Academy has launched a full archive of lectures, interviews, music writing and other content that have been shared via the platform over the course of its existence.

The move comes as Red Bull prepares to close both RBMA and Red Bull Radio tomorrow (October 31), having parted ways with Yadastar, the marketing and consultancy partners that had been running both services.

The likes of Holly Herndon, Jlin, Ben UFO, Objekt, Pan Daijing, Julia Holter and DJ Premier have all been the subject of RBMA video interviews and lectures, and all of which feature amongst the vast archives.

RBMA was originally founded in Berlin in 1998. You can read tQ's Black Sky Thinking piece on what Red Bull's corporate exit means for underground music here and check out the archives for yourself here.
