DON DIABLO & JLV 'PROBLEMS' FT. JOHN K NOW OUT

Music Don Diablo has teamed up with rising star JLV for his third single of the year, ‘Problems’ ft. John K. Continuing his impeccable run of releases, the instantly uplifting ‘Problems’ is available to stream now via HEXAGON.      Hooking the listener from the opening note, ‘Problems’ kicks off with an infectious whistle that will ensure fans will be doing just that for days after. Allowing John K’s soulful male vocals to lead the track, Don and JLV weave in a unique "gospel drop" that will put an instant smile on your face. A captivating track that was made for the much hoped for summer festival circuit, the trio have created the perfect summer sound that is nothing short of anthemic.      Don Diablo: "We have been teasing this record for a while now and even though it wasn't fully finished yet before the pandemic, and the sound is completely different from anything we've done before, the demo became an instant fan favourite. The fans have been demanding a release ever since and after perfecting the final version of the track recently we felt it would actually be a great track to release now since the lyrics are so spot on with the current zeitgeist. With the gospel style vibes in the song it kind of feels like we were able to preach through our music to give a much needed mood boost in a time where we all need a little extra sunshine in our lives."      His second single of the year, Don Diablo flexes his production muscles once more with another sure-fire hit. A stark contrast from his previous production ‘Into The Unknown’, Don proves that whether it’s a deep, dark club track or a sun-drenched summer single, the Hexagon headhoncho can turn his hand to any sound he chooses.      No stranger to HEXAGON, burgeoning producer JLV has already released a plethora of tracks for the influential imprint and last year saw the talented Dutchman realise his dreams with the launch his own label ‘Something Good’ under the Hexagon label group. Making an emphatic start to the year with a major collaboration on ‘Problems’, JLV looks set for a promising future.      Florida native John K has the uncanny ability to capture the essence of summer with his sumptuous vocals. Breaking onto the scene back in 2017, John’s 2020 RIAA platinum-certified single ‘If We Never Met’, garnered over 305 million streams, propelling him into stardom and bringing him to the attention of the talent and tastemakers around the world. Joining forces with Don Diablo and JLV, ‘Problems’ is sure to be another standout track for the talented singer.  Don Diablo has teamed up with rising star JLV for his third single of the year, ‘Problems’ ft.

In conversation with Paula Cendejas

Music We had a delight speaking with Paula Cendejas about her new musci and brand new music video.     Check our her new music video: https://youtu.be/tekDrG_TG0M       Inclusivity is a key value of Numero, how do you advocate this shared value in your everyday life?   For me there everyone is alike, physically, ethnically, sexually,.... I am part of the LGTB community so for me it´s fundamental to be surrounded by people who think alike, free and without judgements!     What gives you confidence?   My people, my friends that have been there for years by my side, before I started in the music business, they help me trust myself and believe in myself, they´ve known me forever and know that I am still the same person.      Can you remember the moment you first discovered your voice? where was it and how old were you then?   Yes! I was 4 years old and I was singing in my parents car on a Saturday, as usual, I was always looking forward to that day of the week to get to learn all the lyrics, thanks to that I gained a lot of music culture and started loving music.      Would you say your voice is your strength?   For sure, it´s my work tool and my life, it's what I love to do, besides eating hahaha. But, yes, definitely, I don´t know what I would´ve done without my voice.      Do you believe that your voice can have a positive impact?   Yes, music is universal, it can connect people from any part of the world, and it creates a language that´s above any other. I feel very lucky I am able to help those connections and create an impact over the people that listen to me. It's amazing seeing someone that doesn't speak your language enjoy your music and feel it as if they could understand the lyrics!     What is your own definition of beauty? Do you have a beauty routine and tips to share with our readers?   For me beauty is defined by that point where everyone feels free and comfortable with themselves, both physically and mentally.  Here is a tip I can share with you, my night skin ritual, a good cleansing, tonic, serum, lotion and lip mask, these are my musts, I´ve been using them since the beginning of the pandemic and my face has changed a lot!      Tell us about the new single you are about to release very soon.   My latest single is called Sabaneta, it´s the first single of my upcoming EP, which will see the light in May. I started working on the EP in May last year, it's been a very long process with a lot of work put into it. Sabaneta speaks about the power of connection between two people apart and how to deal with this stage.  This track brings a lot of changes in sound and image, I dared to change my hair!!      What is your connection with fashion and what excited you the most about it?   My relationship with fashion started a few years ago, when I started with my social media. I realized how important my image is as an artist, how I dress, look... It's part of being an artist, and it's important to keep your personal aesthetic.  I started enjoying that search for my personal image, how I liked to dress, make-up.... It ́s a process that´s always changing together with my music and me as a person, and I like it everyday more and more. I really enjoy dressing with pieces from spanish designers like Mané Mané, JC Pajares... There is a lot of talent in Spain and I try to give it visibility as much as I can.      What is your personal motto?   My family, friends and music are my motto.  To be surrounded by the same people for years makes you value small things and helps me keep my feet on the ground. I value their advice and they are my strength to keep on going! Obviously my fans are also part of that motto, without them we, artists,  would be nothing.  Thank you !

RANI continues to build her trilogy with release of second EP

RANI continues to build her trilogy with release of second EP

Music Today RANI released EP9, the second part of her EP trilogy. While the first EP was all about love for oneself, her latest release delves into personal growth.      Watch the video "Knock You Down"     EP9 presents three catchy and well-produced R&B pop tracks, setting the tone with new single Knock You Down. The EP continues with delightful flows in Deep and concludes with the beautifully fragile and acoustic Second Chances. For the lyrics, RANI drew inspiration from lessons she learned on her path from girl into adult womanhood. “The songs are about growing, getting to know yourself better and turning hurtful situations into a positive experience.”     This storytelling is at the heart of the set of her currently released songs. It’s served by a musical terrain that uses jazzy acoustic guitar riffs, timeless pop melodies and hiphop orientated rhythms to create a signature sound that’s less reliant on the dance music that first earned RANI global attention than on her earlier musical influences like Destiny’s Child, H.E.R., Lauren Hill and Stevie Wonder. “I’ve always loved soul and R&B, especially when it comes with a pop sensibility, but my first explorations in the music industry were in dance music,” she says of her journey to this moment.     The explorations that she alludes to are the collaborations with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music, including the likes of Sam Feldt, KREAM and Martin Jensen, which all occurred long before her debut as a solo artist.      Her debut EP3, released in October of last year, was very well received both in the Netherlands and abroad. The German blog Wonderland wrote about "a journey full of raw emotions and relational turmoil", where Ear Milk described it as a "warm feeling of the nostalgic and iconic R&B turn-of-the-century sound". "You have to keep an eye on this artist," said Unheard Gems. "RANI is fast becoming the new queen of R&B pop." Today RANI released EP9, the second part of her EP trilogy.

Fashion Born and bred in Bologna, Lucio Dalla has been one of the most important Italian songwriter and singer, whose music became for decades the soundtrack for the lives of generations of Italians. He belonged to a genre of Italian composers known as “cantautori,” whose lyrics gave voice to the aspirations and frustrations of a post-war generation, seeking a societal change.His lyrics were eclectic, ranging from the lives of ordinary people, to his love for the sea and his passion for cars. He wrote about the environment and religion and, of course, he wrote about love. Lucio used to describe himself as “a contaminator” of musical genres.     The story of Lucio Dalla and C.P. Company, is a story of friendship: Lucio and Massimo Osti were part of the Bologna cultural environment of the Seventies: at that time, Bologna was the centre of the Italian culture, in great turmoil, with artists, designers, philosophers, singers and poets discussing about the changes that the modern world was facing. A friendship based on the mutual respect that they had of the creative genius of the other and that often led the two of them collaborating on several projects: Massimo designing album covers for Lucio and Lucio wearing custom made C.P.

Company and Fondazione Lucio Dalla have realized an artists' residency with students coming from NABA (Milan) and DAMS (Bologna). The arstists’ residency has taken place at Lucio Dalla’s house, in Bologna, a magic place that recounts artist’s career and passions, through his great life.     During the artists' residency it has been created a documentary: “Lucio DALLA & Massimo OSTI. IMPRENDIBILI”, to illustrate Massimo Osti and Lucio Dalla relationship: not only a friendship, but also a shared vision: both personalities were great innovators, led by a bg curiosity and with an eye always towards the future. The narration of their relationship is given custody of friends and personalities who lived those years of great cultural ferment in Bologna and of clips from Massimo Osti and Fondazione Lucio Dalla archives.     Songwriter, musician and writer Ghemon made a unique remake of a Lucio Dalla’s song “Henna”. His passion for C.P. Company and Lucio Dalla artistic career, makes him the perfect ambassador of the collaboration capsule shot in Lucio Dalla’s residency and throughout the city of Bologna.     The exclusive capsule collection will be available on 50.cpcompany.com and in all C.P.

In conversation with Cero Ismael

In conversation with Cero Ismael

Music Amsterdam based, Dutch, Surinamese and Indonesian, Cero Ismael grew up in a melting pot of different cultures but unfortunately in a broken home. He found early comfort in love, religion, spirituality and music which quickly became his life and focus from an early age - first starting to make music at 11 years old.     On 18th Feb 2021 he released his 8-track debut project Blue Man. The main topic is feeling broken hearted and the mourning process that comes with it, every piece of music discusses the disconnection, the isolation, the missing and mourning that comes with heartbreak.     We had a delight speaking to him about his new project.     You just released your debut EP Blue Man. Who is Cero Ismael? And who is the ‘Blue Man’?   Cero Ismael is the Blue Man and the Blue Man is Cero Ismael.     Can you tell us a little bit more about the project and your process? How did you go about writing each track?   I started with Blue Man in the beginning of 2018. The whole project is produced by Jopie & Rijnbaart. We started working together in 2017 but the year after that we really focused on a project. All of those songs were made in the same (heartbroken) headspace and pretty short after each other. The first song I made was ‘Discontent’. I wasn’t feeling the first demo that much though, so I let it rest for a while. It took me a year to revisit it and change the whole song. A couple of weeks after ‘Discontent’, I made ‘Insane’ and that really was the kick off for the project. After Insane, all songs came together pretty fast after each other. Some songs I would have my focus on and finish, some songs I would rest for a moment in the demos folder and focus on after some time. The last song I finished was ‘Tell Me How/Birds’. We added the last parts in November. Huy came in with the best bass slides ever.     You are based in Amsterdam now, but what was it like growing up in Almere?   Growing up in Almere was beautiful, peaceful and chaotic. Everything started for me in Almere. I met most of my friends there and with those same friends I started making music.      On Blue Man you sing a lot about heartbreak and the breakdown of relationships - what would be your one piece of advice to anyone going through a similar situation?   There’s light at the end of the tunnel. Always. However hard it may seem being in an unpleasant situation, it will get better. Asking and listening to advice from surroundings can and is very helpful most of the time, but listen to your own gut feeling.     There is a mature and peaceful quality to your work. How do you find peace amongst the chaos?   Writing, reading, creating and working out. But to find peace within, chaos is needed sometimes. At least for me. Healthy chaos. Can’t control everything, there needs to be a balance.     Tell us a bit about a day in the life of Cero Ismael.   It depends what day it is. But at the moment all of my weeks have been feeling and looking the same. What day is it? I meditate, write, workout, read, studio, spend time with friends, family or myself, studio again or cycle.      How important is fashion and visual expression to you?   Very important. Fashion and visual expression both express something that words can’t. It doesn’t have to make sense. Feelings don’t always make sense. That is what I love about art so much. It doesn’t have to make sense as long as you feel something. Or nothing. When it comes to fashion I like minimalistic, monotone and clean looks. Preferably no logos. I like the Amsterdam based clothing brand 'Unrecorded' a lot at the moment. Very clean and GOTS certified organic cotton. It is important to me that brands and human beings think and care about the world.    One of my latest favourite examples of visual expression is Arthur Jafa’s ‘Apex’ video. The 8 minute long video shows more than 800 emotional resonating images in the form of a quick digital slide show. I don’t want to reveal too much about it, maybe that'll ruin it for others. But that is another form of visual expression that I love. Give people the space to fill it in themselves.     Who is someone on your playlist that we wouldn’t expect?   I like to listen to Mr. Vegas a lot.     What has been your career highlight to date?   Releasing my debut project Blue Man is a real milestone and highlight to me. I’ve worked on those songs for such a long time and all of them are special to me. Finally sharing those eight songs with the world is unreal. I’m so thankful.      What else can we expect to come this year?   I’m busy with finishing the second project at the moment. You’ll hear that somewhere this year.     Check it out here: http://smarturl.it/BlueMan Amsterdam based, Dutch, Surinamese and Indonesian, Cero Ismael grew up in a melting pot of different cultures but unfortunately in a broken home.

MOODSHIFT RELEASE THIRD ORIGINAL PRODUCTION, 'TOUCH' ALONGSIDE EYE-POPPING MUSIC VIDEO

Music Moodshift has revealed their first original production of 2021 with ‘Touch’, a timely track with deep-rooted themes given the current global pandemic. Despite their inception less than 6 months ago, Lucas Nord, Oliver Nelson, and flyckt have made a name for themselves in the dance space as the next supergroup to watch. With well over 2,000,000 Spotify streams across their past 2 original releases, ‘Chemistry’ and ‘What About My Love’, the band has seen serious support across the board for their unique take on indie dance. Out now, the latest release from Moodshift, ‘Touch’ is available to stream across all platforms.       Kicking off with highly infectious pitched-up vocals and punchy percussion, the melodic track centers on a bouncy bassline and deeply textured synths. With a theme focused on physical touch and the importance of maintaining in-person relationships, the lyrics speak volumes given COVID’s global impact and the restriction on travel.       ‘We wrote Touch last summer and funny enough I don’t think we ever talked about the pandemic or how it affected us while writing the track. Not once did we discuss how social distancing was affecting us or how our normal way of life was completely turned upside down. Now looking back, it must’ve been in the back of our minds and just something we wrote subconsciously cause it’s so applicable to the situation we’re in. We really tried to capture that feeling in the music video. The crowds, the late nights, physical interactions, etc. - everything we desperately want now but can’t have. And that’s basically what the song is about, we don’t need nothing else. This track is our ode to the past and our excitement for the future. “All I [we] want is your Touch’ -  Moodshift   Moodshift 'Touch' [Music Video]: bit.ly/MDTOMV   Moodshift 'Touch' [Stream]: bit.ly/MDTOST Moodshift has revealed their first original production of 2021 with ‘Touch’, a timely track with deep-rooted themes given the current global pandemic.

San Holo announces new album and single

Music On Feb 3rd, Dutch DJ/producer San Holo released find your way (feat. Bipolar Sunshine) as the first official single of his new album bb u ok?– which is out from May 21st via his own label Bitbird.      The album will be released digitally and physically and can be ordered in combination with various merchandise via https://sanholo.lnk.to/bb-albumpr.   Listen to single find your way (feat. Bipolar Sunshine)   "It's all about connections,"said San Holo of his new work. "The connections between people and their memories, between people back and forth and with themselves." On his debut "album1”, San Holo explored the virgin territory between EDM, post-rock and indie, which, in addition to rave reviews from fans, press and colleagues, also earned him the prestigious Dutch Edison Award and an International Dance Music Award. Album number two ‘bb u ok?’, on which, in addition to Bipolar Sunshine, he collaborates with the likes of The Nicholas, Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Chet Porter, American Football and Mija & Mr. Carmack, deepens the unique sound that San Holo has developed for himself. Within his own musical spectrum, he finds room to spread his wings further while keeping both feet on the ground.   With its twenty songs bb u ok? is an honest and open album that asks existential questions about love, hope, loneliness and social expectations. The songs encourage listeners to keep a finger on the pulse of both themselves and those around them and observe how things are really going. The newly founded www.bbuok.com also conveys that message as an online platform. Musically, San Holo builds a world of its own on the album, with alternating organic soundscapes and full-band compositions. “I poured my whole heart into this album. Instead of talking about it, I'd rather people listen to it, hoping it will take them somewhere. They can decide for themselves what it means to them, just as it has its own meaning to me. That's the beauty of music.”   New album bb u ok? was mostly recorded in an Airbnb in Echo Park, Los Angeles. It was here where San Holo found peace to make this second album.  “These songs are about experiences, conversations and moments that I have shared with people all my life. I've never been very good at expressing myself verbatim. Words on their own never seem to really capture the gist of how I feel. Most feelings are so complex that it is almost naive to try to describe them in words. That's why I make music. It's the only way for me to really express myself.”     Single find your way (feat.
