R.A Explores the Musical, Cultural and Creative Climate in New York

Real Scenes is a series of films in which Resident Advisor explores the musical, cultural and creative climate within electronic music’s key destinations. RA looks at the role singular figureheads—producers, DJs, promoters—play in making their city’s music scene a point of world-wide interest. The series also takes a look at places, spaces and inspirations, seeking out the essence of what gives these scenes a truly global resonance.

New Yorkers have long flourished under adversity, though, and its now bustling party scene is a testament to this. Promoters, producers and DJs jumped the East River to establish Brooklyn as a new creative center. Lofts and warehouses filled the void left by Manhattan’s shuttered nightclubs, and a new generation of producers is infusing the city’s musical legacy with the sounds of the international scene.
