The more I pushed the memories away, the more persistent they became. Alone, in the late hours of the night, I found myself searching for that fatal flaw. Maybe my life was too complicated. Maybe I wasn’t attractive enough. Maybe my job wasn’t good enough. Maybe I wasn’t funny, kind or fun enough. These thoughts were painful and unwanted. I needed to push them away, so I would pour myself a glass of whiskey and wait for the anger to come and with it, that sweet amnesia.
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to each of you for your terrific support, love, inspiration, art and for always being the most wonderful people! <3 You always remind us about all the good stuff that is out there and we wish you a very peaceful Christmas time with your loved ones! May 2021 be a magical year for all of us!!
“The art in my project is not the result, its the process. The process of two humans getting to know each other and the documentation of this process. Establishing connection between two humans and for some hours feeling safe, heard, understood and free.” With our series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art.
RENÉ´s new single ‘Unchartered Waters’ is mind-blowing – soft piano chords blend into René´s magnificient voice. So we are incredibly happy to introduce it to you today and moreover we had a chat with the super-talented singer.
We are absolutely in love with JEZ_EBEL´s new song In Her Eyes and even more so with the intriguing video that comes with it. Directed by Herman Friis, it has such a feel-good vibe – somehow it reminds us of how we would imagine a modern Pippi Longstocking to be if she would be in her adolescence. Cheeky and carefree, and always up for something fun and rebellious.
“The Cinema is a wonderful place. You sit together with all sorts of people in a hall and you laugh, cry and feverish together. Streaming never replaces that feeling and experience.” We had the pleasure to question talented Austrian director Daniel Geronimo Prochaska about how he got hands on the script, the immediate feeling of knowing when someone is right for a part and finding his own style of directing.
What is art? For me it is being fully myself. Art is my love for nature, for paper, for drawings. Connecting with my inner child and everything that used to amuse me in the world and was forgotten during the teenage stormy years. Now I am thankful for being able to practice yoga with candles and scents. Having flowers on my desk.
Gaspar Narby´s new single ‘Fragments’ featuring Taura is our soundtrack of today. “Fragments is about moments that turn into memories, and memories that fade away.”
We really miss listening to live music. In the meantime we console ourselves with watching music videos – and what better is there than acoustic versions. Such as the one of TÖME´s ‘I Pray’. “When I made the acoustic version I was playing around with the chords and it made me feel different, it gave me a jazzy, bluesy feel which emphasised the beauty and the chaos.”
Please enjoy our today´s premiere with South African DJ and producer Shimza feat. Mikhaela Faye. Not only is the track the perfect start into the weekend and makes us feel like dancing, we also love the important message behind it about man’s cataclysmic effects on Mother Nature.
Never have I listened to more music than right now. Every evening after work I dive into my own world surrounded by sounds and lyrics that make me dream away, calm down, give me mental strength, energy and inspiration, let me time travel, make me happy or dwell in melancholy, bring up memories and daydreams about the future.
You can´t get enough of a good thing. And so we keep pressing repeat for Rachel Foxx´s latest track Progress. With it´s very intriguing energy this exclusive video premiere is just the perfect way to end this workday.
When there is so much convulsion and change in the air, the compulsion to think about space, the possibility of occupying it freely — no mask, just sun — the floral dress stands in as a commitment to providing a morale boost, an insouciance sensibility, an optimistic, laid-back attitude, perhaps?
What better way to start a Monday than with a cool sound? So take a few minutes break from your work or whatever you are doing right now and turn up the volume for Iyamah’s fabulous track ‘Won’t Work’. The video was spontaneously shot in India and in our chat Iyamah tells us all about this experience: “It’s one of the most spontaneous and challenging things I’ve ever done, planning the whole thing, performing and directing it all.”
We had a chat with the 21-year-old British producer Sonn about his new single, creative moments and the chance to have a fresh start.
