Redbull launches NZ Songwriter’s Retreat series

Redbull NZ recently teamed up with SNIFFERS to bring four of the world’s top artists and producers to Aotearoa for an exclusive Songwriter’s Retreat in Opoutere, Coromandel.

The first three-minute-long episode provides viewers with an insight into intimate moments and experiences of the camp through the lens of US singer-songwriter Anthony ‘Ant’ Clemons (who features on Kanye West’s Jesus Is King and has worked with artists such as Skrillex, Chance The Rapper, and YBN Cordae), New Zealand rap-sensation JessB, and local rising pop-star INDYAH. The challenges of being tasked daily with creating new music in makeshift studios are explored, as well as the benefits of creating music in such. unique environments.

Ant Clemons shares: “As long as it’s egoless in a room you can make the best thing in the world. It’s a good chance to make new friends and vibe with other people’s vibes and see what they have to bring to the table.”

Other international artists at the retreat included; Bizness Boi (millions of streams and multiple hit records after working on Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, the first-ever project for Lil Nas X, and the first Gold-certified albums for both PARTYNEXTDOOR and 6lack), Ink (worked with Nipsey Hussle, Childish Gambino, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, etc.), Swish (worked with YG, Post Malone, G-Eazy, Macklemore, etc.).

New Zealand was well represented by a diverse domestic cohort, including; Melodownz,ChurchIndyahSmokeygotbeatzJessBMikey DamDjeisan SuskovAmbian & SleoBexy, and Jake from LA Women all in attendance
