Red Bull Studios: Tokyo – I Am Ryan Greene

The sound of 90s punk rock music was largely defined by one man, the producer/mixer/engineer known as Ryan Greene. Having worked with many of the biggest bands of the era, including Megadeth, Cheap Trick, Tonic, NOFX, and Lagwagon, Ryan defined the sound of the entire genre.

In 2015, Japanese band, NAMBA69 won the Red Bull Battle of the Bands contest to produce their next album at Red Bull Studios Tokyo, the former site of Red Bull Music Academy. The band frontman Nambu, had known Ryan from his previous band Hi-Standard at Fat Wreck Chords.

For his new band, he knew Ryan was who he wanted to work with to record their new album, so Ryan flew over to Tokyo for a week of recording and mixing at Red Bull to produce NAMBA69's latest release. Knowing that Ryan’s recording schedule was jam-packed and had limited time to experience Japan, Strategy developed a plan to not only document the making of the band’s album, but also a create an experience for Ryan allowing him to experience a side of Japanese culture that he wouldn’t forget.
