KANOA IGARASHI X CASIO G-SHOCK

CASIO G-SHOCK ANNOUNCES LATEST G-LIDE MODEL IN COLLABORATION WITH PRO SURFER KANOA IGARASHI

New Timepiece Arrives in Translucent Case and Band with Premium Surf Data Tracking Capabilities

Today, Casio G-SHOCK unveils an all-new, limited-edition G-LIDE timepiece, in collaboration with professional surfer and G-SHOCK athlete, Kanoa Igarashi. Boasting superior functionality in surf data tracking and performance, the GLX5600KI-7 arrives in a translu1cent case with silver accents and boasts Kanoa’s signature on the case back, face and band.

The new watch is based on the G-LIDE GLX5600 which features a tide graph, an indispensable tool for surfers. The thin, square shape of the watch ensures that it does not obstruct the wrist while surfing. The GLX5600KI-7 features a semi-transparent body that evokes the ocean and is paired with a mirror finish face that gives the watch a simple, cool look. Igarashi’s “Kanoa” signature is inscribed on the upper center of the watch face and on the strap keeper and case back, as well as in illumination when the backlight is turned on.

At just 21 years old, the Huntington Beach, CA native has been in the professional surf scene for over a decade. Kanoa was an instant talent from the time he first jumped in the water at the age of 3, and by the time he was 11 he set a new record for the most victories in a single season. He has gone on to win a number of major surfing competitions and is currently a world-class professional surfer competing on the World Surf League Championship Tour at the top of the sport.

The new model features technical capabilities to match with Kanoa’s impressive surf skills, including Tide & Moon graphs and a Moon Age data that anchors the face of the timepiece, for anticipating tide and surf swell of the rider’s current location.

A video highlighting the collaboration timepiece has been created – watch here: http://bit.ly/G-SHOCKxKanoa

The new model also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology such as:

  • 200M water resistance
  • Shock resistance
  • World time (29 time zones / 48 cities)
  • Auto EL backlight
  • Flash alert
  • Stopwatch and countdown timer
  • 2 Multi function alarms

The GLX5600KI-7 will retail for $130 and will be available for purchase starting this July at select jewelers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.

Illenium & Jon Bellion New Collaborative Single “Good Things Fall Apart”

Illenium reveals a blockbuster new collaborative single with Jon Bellion today. Breaking creative ground and knocking down genre boundaries, this marks the very first collaboration between these two powerhouses. An enthralling apocalypse-esque lyric video accompanies the track release today.

On the track, Illenium, envisions a sonic backdrop if glitchy beats, delicate acoustic guitar, and ethereal percussion, and Bellion’s dynamic voice leaps from intimate verses towards a delightfully dizzy crescendo. The star channels nostalgic 90’s pop punk and turn of the century emo on his catchy and confessional chorus, Coming to terms with a broken heart. I guess that sometimes good things fall apart. It’s unlikely anything either artist has released thus far. Most importantly Good Things Fall Apart has all the makings of a crossover anthem perfect for summer.

The song comes in hot on the heels of two explosive anthems from ILLENIUM. To date, his single Crashing featuring Bahari has amassed nearly 27 million total streams. Meanwhile, the follow-up, Pray featuring Kameron Alexander soundtracked a new HBO documentary. Recently the Pray remix packaged engendered enthusiastic critical acclaim. Dancing Astronaut placed it on an NMF Roundup. YourEDM praised it, as intensely varied, while RunTheTrap proclaimed it, a phenomenal remix pack.

Stay tuned for the cinematic music video for Good Things Fall Apart will debut very soon.

Also, be sure to catch ILLENIUM on tour. He will perform a DJ set at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas on Sunday, May 19. He’s set to touch down Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, continue his Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan, and headline bothMadison Square Garden (September 21) and Red Rocks Amphitheater (October 10, 11, 12) in the fall. Dates are selling out rapidly. Remaining tickets are available here: http://illenium.com/tour/.

ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity, and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.
His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the 10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017 by Billboard, it included such singles as Feel Good (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and Crawl Outta Love Praising the album as a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics, Dancing Astronaut said, While it might seem premature to call an album a masterpiece, no other title would fit Awake so well Billboard observed, The Phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.
Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs, all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition, and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours. Also a sought-after collaborator, Bellion co-wrote and produced, Trumpets, Jason Derulo& and co-wrote the GRAMMY Award-winning, 10x-Platinum hit The Monster for Eminem and Rihanna. He co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s recent single, Fall in Line featuring Demi Lovato. Bellionbegins his North American tour this June, tickets available HERE.

PUMA X Pirelli: the new “Replicat -X”

FAST AS A BULLET, AERODYNAMIC AS A RACING CAR

PUMA and Pirelli introduce the new “Replicat -X” inspired by modern sports cars.

  • Pirelli and PUMA join forces to develop a revolutionary new shoe inspired by motorsport.
  • A completely fresh silhouette made with a sole and upper construction that helps you to control the grip off and on track.
  • The Replicat-X marks a new PUMA motorsport design philosophy bringing racing to the road.

You know the sound of a racing car? It’s the sound of power. A legend in the tire industry, Pirelli dominates that power both on and off the track. And now you can feel the excitement of the race track at your feet.

For the first time, PUMA and Pirelli join forces to bring control to your feet. Combining Pirelli’s CINTURATO Blue tire, used at the top level of racing with Puma’s motorsport heritage, the new Replicat-X is designed to perform like a modern supercar, bringing the track to the street.

 

The Replicat-X sports an “oversized” full rubber outsole, with a comfortable molded sock-liner. Pirelli’s unique CINTURATO Blue tread pattern on the sole – used to generate maximum traction at wet races – provides grip and control for the power under your feet.

Fast as a bullet, aerodynamic as a racing car, the shoe’s upper features a perforated Microfiber-suede on the vamp, with lateral mesh panels for breathability, providing the perfect fit to own the road.

In AW19 PUMA will bring the track to the street, influencing a new generation inspired by the hustle and roar of racing in their style and swagger on the streets. We will create a powerful and relevant new look and feel for PUMA Motorsports. We will break through the ordinary, tear down the trackside barriers and accelerate into the streets at full throttle!

The new Replicat – X in the first colorway will be pre-launched from May 15 on puma.com

Monsta X & Steve Aoki “Play It Cool

GLOBAL POP SENSATIONS MONSTA X & STEVE AOKI RELEASE ENGLISH VERSION OF HIT SINGLE “PLAY IT COOL” TODAY

STREAM “PLAY IT COOL” ENGLISH VERSION HERE

Today, global superstars, Monsta X, and two-time Grammy nominated DJ and Producer, Steve Aoki, release the English version of their collaborative hit “Play it Cool.” On the heels of releasing the Korean version last month, the Aoki-Monsta force keeps fans on their feet with this new English language track. Aoki composed, arranged, and produced this track, alongside co-writer and Monsta X rapper, I.M.

The bouncy piano keys and punchy beat provide the foundation for Aoki’s iconic electro-pop sound, paired with Aoki’s use of Monsta X’s voices, to create texture and build the track as a whole. The initial chorus proclaims “And when you’re dancin’ in my face, I just play it cool,” followed by the lyrics “I love the way that you came over here” repeated over and over again in an edited sped-up hook that is impossible to get out of your head. Steve says, “their [Monsta X] voices dive into your soul”, so it’s no surprise that he would utilize their singing as a fundamental motif and driving force, outside of the vocal leads.

“Monsta X is one of those powerhouse groups that sets the bar very high,” stated Aoki. “Their voices stay with you long after the song is over, and on this track they sang so profoundly that all we had to do was focus on the story we were telling. I really believe in today’s world that we have redefined what love and relationships look like, so I think that this song is one that many people can relate to.”

“It was such an honor to work with Steve Aoki. He is truly an amazing artist and producer. We love how “Play It Cool” turned out at the end so much that we included it in our recent album – Take 2 ‘We Are Here’!” said Monsta X. “After the great success of the Korean version, we can’t wait to see the responses to the English version from all over the world. This collab is a gift from us to our ‘monbebe’ , for always taking care of us and keeping it cool. Thank you.”

Outside of this new collab with Steve, Monsta X have also announced a nineteen-date world tour beginning in April, ending with six U.S. dates. The band will be traveling all the way from South Korea to California throughout the course of their performances, ending at the historic Staples Center. Tickets are on sale Friday March 29th, 4:00PM local; follow the link here for more information. The band’s latest album, Take.2 ‘We Are Here,’ debuted at #5 on Billboard’s World Albums Chart for the week of March 2, 2019; and has been causing an unstoppable wave of interest with notable mentions in Complex, Idolator, Billboard, Cosmopolitan, and NME stating that the album “features some giant leaps forward for the band.” On top of that, the band is currently set to perform as the first K-pop group at the iHeartRadio Music Festival out in Las Vegas on September 21st, 2019.
