LIBRE EAU DE TOILETTE is the new fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent, starring DUA LIPA

Fragrances Free. That’s the one word that defines Yves Saint Laurent. Always on the edge. Experimenting without constraints. Breaking boundaries. Fearlessly self-confident, the couturier dared to bare it all in 1971, in an intimate, provocative nude portrait advertising his first masculine scent. Nude: the ultimate gesture of self- esteem from the man who lived by the motto TOUT, MAIS TERRIBLEMENT – “Everything, but with excess”. And for the women he inspires.     With Libre, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté offers the YSL woman the same unfettered freedom to blaze with irreverence and desire. Sexy. Sensual. Assertive. From the depths of her burning heart to the shivering sensuality of her glowing skin, the Libre woman stretches the frontiers of femininity.     And no one could embody this fiery, dauntless, and uncompromising femininity with more authenticity than Dua Lipa. A glamorous, confident beauty famed for her bold fashion statements, the young singer- songwriter – a cultural definer and one of the most streamed artists in the world – has been the face and voice of Libre Eau de Parfum since 2019.     Today, Libre Eau de Toilette unveils a new, more intimate facet of Dua Lipa’s fierce femininity, defiantly offering her naked skin to the sun in an exhilarating, hedonistic statement of freedom – but always with a couture edge.     Walking the line between the masculine and the feminine, the new fragrance composed by Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaïm is everything that makes Libre Eau de Parfum so It-conic. But reinterpreted with a bright, fresh sensuality that makes it more dazzling and skin-enveloping than ever, its delicate light golden pink nuance undressed in all its sexy glory by a new, taller iteration of Libre’s It-couture bottle.     Infusing a pure, soft white tea accord into the freshness of Diva lavender and the burning sensuality of orange blossom absolute, Libre Eau de Toilette accents the fragrance’s signature tension between cool and hot. The caress of the sun and the freshness of water. A sexy fusion of scent and bare flesh, expressing today’s need for more transparency and human connection.     Because freedom is more relevant now than it ever was. It resonates in a personal, emotional, intimate manner. More than a state of mind, it’s a way to live. To feel everything on your skin. To embrace who you are, your emotions, your desires. Burning bright. Feeling right. Smelling marvelous all the while, in the radiant sillage of Libre Eau de Toilette...     In 2021, dare to unveil your fire. Experience the excitement. The sexy cool frisson of exposure.       With Libre Eau de Toilette, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s iconic scent unveils its freshest, brightest, most feminine interpretation yet, expressed by its delicate light golden pink colour inspired by the iconic nude nuance of the Saint Laurent collections.     The thrilling ad campaign for Libre Eau de Toilette reunites the cutting-edge, award-winning L.A.-based director and photographer Nabil and the bold new voice of pop music.

announcing A. G. Cook remix album 'Apple vs 7G' with Charli XCX

Music PC Music proudly announces co-founder A. G. Cook’s forthcoming remix album Apple vs 7G with ‘XCXOPLEX’, his first track on the label together with his long-term collaborator, the boundary breaking pop-artist and songwriter, Charli XCX.                    Apple vs 7G features remixes and edits of songs from Cook’s pair of acclaimed 2020 albums Apple and 7G, together with Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Hannah Diamond, No Rome, Oklou, Baauer, Boys Noize, Airhead, Eartheather, GRRL + more. PC Music is a collaborative outfit like no other - A. G. and all the artists in the PC world are constantly cross-pollinating each other's music, feeding into a fruitful and unique creative world. The remix album and two previous albums embody this approach to their very core.     ‘XCXOPLEX ‘featuring Charli XCX, is a powerful rework of “Xxoplex” taken from Apple, and sees the duo push the boundaries of pop once more, the first time both artists have officially featured on a track together.  The original “Xxoplex” was a work of controlled chaos with flickers of beauty shimmering beneath the surface, a track described by Cook as “the dark, industrial heart of Apple”. The rework brings the melodies of the original out of the darkness into the light, with Charli adding a soaring vocal hook at it’s centre.     Hannah Diamond and Sarah Bonito angelically step into the vocal booth for their remix of ‘The Darkness’, following the bouncing escapism of Caroline Polachek’s ‘Oh Yeah’ and bass nihilism of umru on ‘2021’. French singer Oklou delivers a classic acoustic cover of ‘Being Harsh’, Denzel Himself delivers furious stuttering beats for ‘H202’, Boyz Noize head straight to euphoric dancefloors for ‘Stargon’ and there’s the off-kilter pop of GRRL ‘Gold Leaf’.

In conversation with W&W

Music We had a pleasure speaking with Willem & Ward - W&W about their new single "Skydance" and new projects they are worknig on.     Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today. First of all, for those of our readers who aren’t yet familiar with you, could you introduce yourselves?   We are Willem and Ward, both 32 years old and born in The Netherlands. Together we produce and play electronic music under the name W&W, we also have an alias called NWYR. We run a record label and clothing line both named Rave Culture and we also do events under that same name.      You’ve been in the electronic dance music scene for well over a decade, how did your journey in the industry as a duo start?   We started out as just being friends, then started making music together which was more trance orientated. We always loved all different styles so we kept implementing more and more of that until the blend of sounds createdwhatwe have now.      Do you have any distinct musical memories from childhood that have shaped you as artists?   Willem: I remember hearing Alice Deejay - Better Off Alone on the radio and was like “wow what is this kind of music?” That was definitely a moment that made me get into electronic music.   Ward: I went to a theatre with my mom when I was 11 and saw a DJ play with vinyl. It looked so cool to me, I instantly wanted to know what that was exactly and how to do it!      Have you always championed the Big Room sound or has your style developed through the years?   We feel our sound has always been developing. We are always on the look for new sounds and techniques to implement in our music. We love the energetic feeling from BigRoom but also love the melodies from trance and hardstyle, as well as the rhythm in Latin orientated music etc.     What are some of the highlights of your career to date?    In2019, when we last played Tomorrowland was really insane. We had the sunset time on the Main Stage and it was really magical. That was certainly a show we’ll never forget and are super proud of!      Your new single ‘Skydance’ has just dropped, how long did it take to produce and how was it to work alongside AXMO again?   Working with AXMO is always great. The guys are super talented, motivated and also great people. Skydance took around half a year to finish, going back and forward between us.     What’s the story behind the single?   AXMO came up with the melody and a setup, we loved it! We worked on it some more, writing new melodies for it, making vocal chops etc. Then we needed a singer for it and Giin(who we also did our song ‘Long Way Down’with) was really an easy choice for us, she has a super amazing voice!      You’ve been revolutionising the livestream space over the past year with your extended reality streams, the most recent of which showcased the world’s first XR nightclub – Club Mythic – how long did it take to bring your digital realm Rave Culture City to life and is it as you imagined?   It took quite a while todevelopthe idea and actually have all the visuals created, but after 20XX we kind of had the blueprint which made it a bit easier for Rave Culture Live 001. But it turned out even better than we hoped, really unique and super futuristic! We wanted to capture the club feeling for everyone still at home and we think we accomplished that.      Is the Rave Culture Live series a concept you’d like to continue with once clubs and festivals reopen?   Yes for sure! It’s a great way of showing new music and interactingwith people! Also, wewill not be the only DJ’s to be playing at Club Mythic :)     What’s next on the agenda for your label Rave Culture?   We have a whole lot of great tunes coming up on Rave Culture! Everyone on the label is so productive. It’s really hard to pick the best tracks from everyone, as they make a great track every week!      Do you have any shows to look forward to? What have you missed most about performing live?   There are some things planned in the summer which we’re really excited for! The last real show that we played was in December 2020 in Thailand, where we did a Rave Culture event there. We really miss performing live a lot!     Do you have any tracks that are a must-have when performing for a high-energy crowd?   There are a few tracks that always do really well in our sets, for instance the Crowd Control moment is always huge, as well as one of our favorites ‘God is a Girl’.      What advice would you give to aspiring producers or DJs who are just starting their musical career?   Start with trying to remake existing music to the best of your ability to improve your skills, then progress into developing your own style. Do a lot of research, practice a lot, fail a lot and you will make it!

DON DIABLO 'THROUGH THE STORM' FT. JORDAN MACKAMPA NOW OUT

Music Dutch titan Don Diablo is back with another superb single ‘Through The Storm’ ft. UK based singer/songwriter Jordan Mackampa – out now via HEXAGON.      Fusing Don’s inimitable sound with Jordan’s characteristic vocals, ‘Through The Storm’ features a sonic soundscape that perfectly complements the song’s motivational lyrics. A soulful slowed down piece of electronic music with a unifying message in these darker times, Don’s latest offering is here to captivate the hearts and inspire the minds of listeners worldwide.     Don Diablo “Excited to finally share "Through The Storm" from my upcoming FOREVER album. I really wanted to continue the spirit and my signature sound from "Bad", one of my biggest records from last year and feel super blessed to have Jordan Mackampa's incredible vocal talents on this record to add a unique layer of soul to it, which definitely took things to another level. The message of the record speaks for itself: we'll make it through this storm together. I can't wait to travel the world again and play this record out live one day in the near future.”     With the world still in lockdown, no one could accuse Don Diablo of resting on his laurels. Making an astounding entrance into the crypto-art scene last month, Don established himself as one of the most sought-after digital artists in the NFT space. His GΞNΞSIS and ‘Destination Hexagonia’ drops saw him disrupt the industry with a physical/digital NFT hybrid unlike anything that had been seen before.  ‘Destination Hexagonia’ saw Don make history with the sale of the first ever full-length concert NFT, selling for a staggering 600Ξ (current market value $2 million) on esteemed platform SuperRare and placing him as the 4th highest selling crypto artist in the world.

SHOWTEK ENLIST THERESA REX FOR WISTFUL  SINGLE ‘WHAT IS LOVE’

SHOWTEK ENLIST THERESA REX FOR WISTFUL SINGLE ‘WHAT IS LOVE’

Music World-renowned duo Showtek return to headlines with their latest triumphant release ‘What Is Love.’ Featuring vocals from Theresa Rex, best known for her work on Martin Jensen’s mega-hit ‘Solo Dance’, Showtek’s production offers an uplifting dance instrumental while Rex’s lyrics paint a picture a shade darker. ‘What Is Love’ is available on all streaming platforms now via Universal Music.    STREAM: SHOWTEK FEAT. THERESA REX ‘WHAT IS LOVE’ [UNIVERSAL]    ‘What is love without someone to love ya?’ Theresa Rex’s lyrics provide the focal point of Showtek’s newest single, exploring themes of unrequited love and relationship struggles. The resonating vocals were created by Canadian singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez. However, the production of ‘What is Love’ sharply juxtaposes the somber topic. After opening with a light synth line, the chorus blossoms into an exuberant dance affair complete with a brightly synopacted bass rhythm and an immediately catchy top melody. Capped off by Rex’s soaring vocals, ‘What Is Love’ is an earworm that combines broad pop appeal with modern club sensibilities, grounded in classic dance production while harnessing a forward-thinking sound.    "What is love. A philosopher's favorite question. For musicians like us it’s a great way to express how we feel. The 90's house music style is a big part of our lives and inspiration personally, and a perfect way to lay that sentiment down into a track. We wrote this one with Jessie Reyez and love how Theresa Rex performed her vocals on this. Both great artists we loved working with.” - Showtek   "I just love this song, I love the lyrics, the vibe, the whole thing. I'm so glad it's finally out for the world to hear. Working with Showtek has been so easy, I feel like we had the same vision for the song and I hope it shines through." - Theresa Rex   Showtek is a revered Dutch DJ/producer duo consisting of Wouter Janssen and Sjoerd Janssen, a dynamic team that has been actively producing their unique take on dance music since 2001. The brothers dominated the underground hardstyle scene until 2011, garnering attention thanks to hits  ‘FTS,’ ‘The Colours Of The Harder Style’ and ‘Black’ just to name a few. After a decade of being on top of the hardstyle scene, selling out solo shows and releasing two studio albums, it was time for a change and a new challenge.    The following year, their style of dance music shifted with the onset of the EDM boom, which paid off in the form of multiple groundbreaking smash hits. These include 2012’s collaborative track with Hardwell, ‘How We Do’, 2013’s ‘Get Loose’, ‘Cannonball’, ‘Booyah’, ‘We Like To Party’, 2014’s ‘Bouncer’, and platinum-awarded ‘Bad’ with David Guetta and VASSY, all of which currently collectively sit at an impressive 600,000,000 combined streams via Spotify and almost 1 billion views on YouTube to-date. In the last three years they also collaborated with Major Lazer, Moby and Wyclef Jean. The industry titans have opened their own imprint, Skink Records, and have gone on to gather firm support from dance music mainstays the likes of Calvin Harris, Skrillex, and Tiësto, to name a few. Showtek have also graced the decks of some of the world’s most famed festivals and nightclubs, such as Manchester’s Don’t Let Daddy Know, The Netherlands’ Mysteryland, Ibiza’s Pacha, Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, Singapore’s Zouk, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and Germany’s Parookaville. Nearing two decades since their inception, this well-established act is now creatively pursuing the world of pop in full force, with a worldly, culturally-infused urban flair. Showing no signs of slowing down, the wiley veterans have already added several standout tracks to their extensive discography in 2021, including ‘Pum Pum’ with Sevenn, ‘Someone Like Me’ with Lxandra, and now ‘What Is Love’ with Theresa Rex.    Danish singer Theresa Rex has been the voice behind a string of global hits, earning hundreds of millions of streams in the process. Inspired by the vocals of Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin and Donna Summer, Theresa Rex fell in love with music from an early age. One day, while playing jazz at the local town square, Theresa’s voice caught the attention of a passing producer and songwriter team, who fell for her expressive voice and pure talent. They asked her to sing on Martin Jensen’s ‘Solo Dance’, which went on to be a major global hit, amassing over 650 million streams across platforms. Ever since, fans worldwide have been intrigued by who was behind the amazing voice. From then Theresa went on to feature on multiple international releases, including her chart-topping collaboration with Jonas Blue ‘What I Like About You,’ which has received more than 250 million streams and was awarded gold plaques in The UK and Italy. In January she and the Canadian DJ Frank Walker released a stunning cover of Sixpence None The Richer’s ‘Kiss Me’ which has streamed more than 6 millions across platforms. Additionally, Rex’s recent single with Alle Farben ‘Sex’ is racking up streams, rapidly approaching 1 million Spotify streams in under a month. Meanwhile, Theresa Rex’s ongoing solo project has more than 20 million streams, and has been remixed by DJs like Rowen Reeks, Nightcall and Wankelmut. Already one of the most in-demand vocalists in the industry, the sky's the limit for this budding superstar.  World-renowned duo Showtek return to headlines with their latest triumphant release ‘What Is Love.’ Featuring vocals from Theresa Rex, best known for her work on Martin Jensen’s mega-hit ‘Solo Dance’, Showtek’s production offers an uplifting dance instrumental while Rex’s lyrics paint a picture a shade darker. ‘What Is Love’ is available on all streaming platforms now via Universal Music.    STREAM: SHOWTEK FEAT. THERESA REX ‘WHAT IS LOVE’ [UNIVERSAL]    ‘What is love without someone to love ya?’ Theresa Rex’s lyrics provide the focal point of Showtek’s newest single, exploring themes of unrequited love and relationship struggles. The resonating vocals were created by Canadian singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez. However, the production of ‘What is Love’ sharply juxtaposes the somber topic. After opening with a light synth line, the chorus blossoms into an exuberant dance affair complete with a brightly synopacted bass rhythm and an immediately catchy top melody. Capped off by Rex’s soaring vocals, ‘What Is Love’ is an earworm that combines broad pop appeal with modern club sensibilities, grounded in classic dance production while harnessing a forward-thinking sound.    "What is love. A philosopher's favorite question. For musicians like us it’s a great way to express how we feel. The 90's house music style is a big part of our lives and inspiration personally, and a perfect way to lay that sentiment down into a track. We wrote this one with Jessie Reyez and love how Theresa Rex performed her vocals on this. Both great artists we loved working with.” - Showtek   "I just love this song, I love the lyrics, the vibe, the whole thing. I'm so glad it's finally out for the world to hear. Working with Showtek has been so easy, I feel like we had the same vision for the song and I hope it shines through." - Theresa Rex   Showtek is a revered Dutch DJ/producer duo consisting of Wouter Janssen and Sjoerd Janssen, a dynamic team that has been actively producing their unique take on dance music since 2001. The brothers dominated the underground hardstyle scene until 2011, garnering attention thanks to hits  ‘FTS,’ ‘The Colours Of The Harder Style’ and ‘Black’ just to name a few. After a decade of being on top of the hardstyle scene, selling out solo shows and releasing two studio albums, it was time for a change and a new challenge.    The following year, their style of dance music shifted with the onset of the EDM boom, which paid off in the form of multiple groundbreaking smash hits. These include 2012’s collaborative track with Hardwell, ‘How We Do’, 2013’s ‘Get Loose’, ‘Cannonball’, ‘Booyah’, ‘We Like To Party’, 2014’s ‘Bouncer’, and platinum-awarded ‘Bad’ with David Guetta and VASSY, all of which currently collectively sit at an impressive 600,000,000 combined streams via Spotify and almost 1 billion views on YouTube to-date. In the last three years they also collaborated with Major Lazer, Moby and Wyclef Jean. The industry titans have opened their own imprint, Skink Records, and have gone on to gather firm support from dance music mainstays the likes of Calvin Harris, Skrillex, and Tiësto, to name a few. Showtek have also graced the decks of some of the world’s most famed festivals and nightclubs, such as Manchester’s Don’t Let Daddy Know, The Netherlands’ Mysteryland, Ibiza’s Pacha, Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, Singapore’s Zouk, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and Germany’s Parookaville.

Laura Mvula makes long-awaited comeback and shares two new remixes of ‘Church Girl’ for 2021’s Google Nest Sessions

Music British singer-songwriter Laura Mvula, known for her international hit ‘Green House’, returns to the spotlight after five years with the release of her forthcoming and highly anticipated album 'Pink Noise'. As a preview to her album, the 'MOBO' award-winning singer releases two musical remixes of her brand new hit single 'Church Girl’.     None other than French Disco expert Dimitri From Paris and British DJ and producer Romare produced the remixes. The official remixes, made in collaboration with Google Nest, are out today and can be listened to here.     Speaking about the collaboration, Laura Mvula said: “When I was writing my new album I knew I wanted to create something that made me want to dance, so curating the Dance remix for Nest Sessions felt like a very natural extension of that. Like all great disco music, the feel-good vibe always gets me moving so I hope it does the same for you too. When the dancing's done and you're ready to relax, the laidback beats of the Chilled remix are perfect for chilling out with friends at home or winding down after a busy day. Each ofthese new remixes bring a completely different energy to Church Girl, so no matter how you're feeling there's a flavour for you.”     Since launching last year, Google’s popular mood music series Nest Sessions has provided a platform for leading artists, including Celeste, Jessie Ware, Mabel, Olly Alexander, and Tove Lo, to deliver exclusive performances and inspire people at home to set the mood with music as they transition throughout the bank holiday weekend. For the latest edition, Google Nest has invited Laura Mvula to curate two newly created, hot-off- the-press music mood remix videos of her new hit single ‘Church Girl’.     The remixes can be played through any smart speaker or display with Google Assistant function. The videos can also be found on YouTube.

In conversation with Dreya Mac

Music We had a pleasure speaking with young artist Dreya Mac.     Check out her new single “TIME” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3S-49_1hWzc       Hi Dreya, how are you? How would you describe your sound in three words?   Melodic, Spontaneous, Motivating     You came into music via dance, do you find the two worlds merge together easily for you?   The two worlds are almost parallel so they merged very easily for me. Dance drives a lot of music. The natural thing you do when you hear music is dance so without one the other cannot excel. That alone has allowed me to come into the music scene with a different kind of confidence.     What’s the best thing about performing for you?    I never thought anything would compare to how I release through dance but I am falling in love with storytelling through music. It’s just not necessarily as easy as dance. Dance has always come so natural to me as opposed to song writing. I sometimes struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings so it takes me longer to write.     What made you decide to take the plunge and start writing lyrics?   I saw my sister, Alika thrive at song writing and always looked up to her. Similar to dance, I also started that because I saw her doing it to be fair. I’ve been singing generally since a very young age prematurely so I just figured i’d do well at it.      Throughout lockdown, how have you managed to stay creative?   It has been a huge struggle but I’d have to say, myself. I am so motivated by myself at this point in life and I am blessed to say that. After I released Skippin I got heavily demotivated as things moved very slow. Picking myself up after that I think is the reason I continue to seek inspiration from myself first through everything.     What’s the highlight of your career thus far?   Performing a Colors show for sure. I set that goal summer last year and there was no thought in mind at all that it’d happen less than a year later. I hope to continue to exceed my expectations.      You’re able to choose anyone to produce, songwriter and feature on a record with you - which three people do you choose?     Producer: Timbaland  FEAT: Tierra Whack Song Writer: Missy Elliott      I chose Timbaland because he is a legend but also because in my opinion, he’s produced some of the best hip hop dance tracks of all time. I chose Tierra because she’s a huge inspiration as an artist and I think our collab will be incredible. I chose Missy because the Missy/Timbaland collab is always groundbreaking and she is the G.O.A.T when it comes to female lyricism.     What can we expect next from you?   Fans can look forward to an EP this summer. I am super excited and proud to release a body of work i’ve been crafting together this past year. None stop good music and visuals to come.  We had a pleasure speaking with young artist Dreya Mac.     Check out her new single “TIME” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3S-49_1hWzc       Hi Dreya, how are you?

Yazija steps Out into the open

Yazija steps Out into the open

Music Yazija finds himself at the intersection of music and performance art. Through his music, which blends pop, soul and modern R&B, Yazija investigates various themes that play an important part in his life such as the identity of self, gender roles, and masculine vulnerability.      His debut single and PRV (Performance Registration Video) Out isa refined reflection on his own identity. “For such a long period of time I’ve been too insecure to share my true self with the worldand for long I did not understand why. It was only until I got introduced to professor Kimberlé Crenshaw’s work on intersectionality that helped me understand my complex position; being a queer man of color living in a rigid patriarchal society. My debut single ‘Out’ marks the beginning of a journey through which I hope to uncover all the parts of myself that I have subconsciously repressed for too long”, he says.     “I’m out in the open,” he sings in the opening line. From the very start of the music video, the focus is on his movement, on his silhouette, as he confronts the viewer with a gazeinto the camera. He shares the room only with Calla Lilies - which symbolize rebirth and are used frequently by Robert Mapplethorpe,a photographer who is of great inspiration to him- as he moves his body over screaming guitar solos while hisshadow fluidly dances across the wall.     Art plays an important role in Yazija’s universe. He knows how much of a savior it can be and has a deep knowledge of how it can help us understand ourselves and each other. “Art is a beautiful language created by us humans which often helps us speak the words we dare not to say. Every work of art is an expression of an individual’s own complex experience, a point of view of their life in this world,” he says. With that in mind, the performance registration video for Outand the experience of the listener or viewer was always going to be an important aspect of the single.     When considering the visual, he was inspired by artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien CBE RA’s 1989 film ‘Looking For Langston’. He loves its captivating cinematography along with the urgency the film expresses and the fact that Julien made the film knowing the topics could cause controversy. After meeting Yazija in London and hearing a demo of Out, Julien offered to become a long-distance mentor to the young emerging artist and helped him realize his debut PRV.      For the characters in ‘Looking for Langston’, dance is an incredibly urgent form of expression and fortitude in the face of repression, and Yazija embodies this rebellion. Growing up, he would barely dance in public through fear of others thinking he was expressing himself too freely, but as he fearlessly spins and steps his way through the video for Out, he takes a determined stance against all those who bear judgement. “With this release I’m saying forget all that. I’m gonna be me unapologetically,” he says. “The world needs to know that nothing makes my heart race likeperforming and living my truth.”     Out by Yazija is streaming on all platforms now, click here to listen.  Yazija finds himself at the intersection of music and performance art.
