Guest Lecture: Rusty Egan

Craig Gamblen

As part of our Creative Spirit sessions, Rusty Egan, one of the most iconic and influential people in the electronic music industry, came in our studios to talk our students about his experience in the industry. Responsible for bringing Kraftwerk to the UK, as well as introducing electronic synthpop to the British club scene, Rusty has played a significant part in the history of electronic music.

After opening up the famous Camden Palace night club and dj’ing at the Blitz, the influential New Romantic Nightclub in London, Rusty continues to spread electronica across the UK. Arguably, without Rusty Egan, the global music industry wouldn’t be what it is today.

After an in-depth interview with Rusty, students also had the opportunity to ask questions and meet him.
