It’s time for another awesome music book you should have on your shelves and not just coffee tables: Gestalten’s “For the Record”.
Issued already in 2013 it is still a piece of music anthology made in collaboration with the RedBull music academy and featuring “Conversations with People Who Have Shaped the Way We Listen to Music“, as the subtitle goes.
“For the Record includes conversations between luminaries such as Nile Rodgers and Martyn Ware—the forces behind some of the biggest tunes in disco and pop from the likes of Chic, Daft Punk, David Bowie, Madonna, The Human League, and Heaven 17—who compare notes on the best way to create chart-topping hits. Erykah Badu, one of neo-soul’s defining voices, shares career advice and psychedelic wisdom with up-and-coming New York rap duo The Underachievers. DJ Harvey and Ben UFO, two different generations of DJs, talk about the good old days, the present day, and the uncertain future of selecting records for a living.”
