May the Sky

By Vaughn Lowery

The emerging indie rock band, May the Sky [MTS], is based in Dayton, OH. Their exclusive, “Won” from the new EP Discoveries is an anthemic masterpiece which is reminiscent of the iconic Bohemian Rhapsody and some of their mantras. Hard hitting melodies alongside of dramatic drums and rhythmic guitar riffs. Brilliant lyrics coupled with effortless vocals and orchestration make this alternative ensemble ooze marketability. It’s been a long time since we have tripped upon a gem like MTS. Both epic and spellbinding.

Looking after proceedings in the ‘Club’ (room 2) Kevin de Vries will kick things off, handing over to one of Brazil’s finest exports ANNA, followed by Ibiza favourite Andrea Oliva, Canadian prodigy Mathew Jonson (live), Berlin techno duo FJAAK and deep techno stalwart Chris Liebing who will close the room.

OTR II

By Vaughn Lowery

Last night concluded the Los Angeles leg of OTRII tour, featuring Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

DJ Khaled opened up for the Carters alongside of special guests – Tyga, Tank, YG and Ella Mai. With thousands of screaming fans, Bey and her husband transformed the Rose Bowl into an iconic night to commemorate. Massive LED screens, scores of dancers coupled with pyrotechnics and a state-of-the-art sound system commanded one of the most powerful performances of our lifetime. No wonder the show (earlier this year) has been decorated by both Michelle and Barack Obama’s presence as well as the Kardashians and Oprah. ‘Apeshit‘ off of their latest collaboration Everything is Love was a crowd favorite as Bey spits some serious bars with her epic flow which rivals some of today’s top lyricists.

With less than 8 shows left, you may want to consider making arrangements to see this landmark presentation at on of its last stops.

If anything to witness the bright smiles of 11 high school students who will receive one $100,000 scholarships (per city) from both the BeyGOOD and Shawn Carter foundations.

Remaining OTR II tour dates.

‘That Feeling When’

Critically acclaimed Norwegian pop art-songstress Dagny is back with her brand new single “That Feeling When” today.

Get it HERE via Republic Records and check out the video HERE!

Underscored by buzzing electronics and dancefloor-ready energy, the track slips from hypnotic verses into a seismic refrain that’s impossible to shake. In addition, the official video for “That Feeling When” is Dagny’s most personal video to date as it was shot in Dagny’s hometown of Troms and the live performance footage was taken from a special performance in Oslo. The video premiered with Billboard.com who called it “beautiful & breathtaking.” Check out the premiere here.

On the new song Dagny said That Feeling When’ is my first single in 2018. The song shows another side of me as an artist, with a more melancholic, epic and atmospheric sound. It was written on an early autumn day in the studio, on my favorite instruments, the Omni chord. The inspiration for the song came from the hashtag #ThatFeelingWhen, and was written from my personal histories of not only falling in love, but also sorrow. It will be the first of two singles that will be released before the summer, and I hope that ´That Feeling When´ can create a different feeling for the listeners than my previous songs.”

In tandem with the song’s release, she hit the road on a short sold out North American tour. It kicked off April 22 in Toronto, Ontario at Adelaide Hall and rolls through select major markets before closing out May 4 at Popscene in San Francisco, CA.

Check out the full itinerary below!

With a singular sound, style, and spirit, Dagny is quietly ascending to the forefront of pop just under the radar. She recently guested on Seeb’s new track “Drink About” which has gone viral with nearly 14 million streams worldwide and hit Top 5 on Spotify charts in Scandinavia. Check out “Drink About” here!

2017 saw Dagny star in a high-profile Target campaign covering Andrea True’s 70’s Classic “More More, More” in addition to supporting LANY on tour in between her own tour dates. Last year, VEVO also touted her among its “Ones to Watch” as the single “Wearing Nothing” surpassed over 13 million Spotify streams.

Post a high-profile Beats 1 premiere by tastemaker Zane Lowe, 2016’s “Backbeat” transformed into a veritable smash, racking up a staggering nearly 33 million Spotify streams as Apple, Spotify, and Tidal pegged her as an “Artist To Watch” and Interview Magazine, NME, Nylon, Forbes, and more lauded her. She teamed up with BØRNS for “Fool’s Good,” which hit nearly 10 million streams and highlighted her Ultraviolet EP [Republic Records].

Get Wild This Green Season with Natural Habitat Adventures

 

From taking in lush, tropical landscapes to viewing new animal births during the Great Migration, discover where the grass grows greener around the globe.

 

Rainy season brings out a special bounty of nature encounters from flourishing flora to new fauna. Ecotourism leader Natural Habitat Adventures proves it’s easy to be green with trips to see some of the most incredible wildlife spring into action around the world. From experiencing sea turtles nesting and spotting whales along Costa Rica’s south Pacific coast to taking in breathtaking views of huge herds making a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains in Tanzania, see where the grass grows greener this season with Natural Habitat Adventures:

 

Natural Jewels of Costa Rica
10 Days | From USD$5,495
NEW! Green Season Departure: Aug 4 – 13, 2018

In July and August, “green season” is a time of new birth and plentiful transitions among Costa Rica’s lush rainforests, mist-veiled mountains, wild beaches and active volcanoes, containing some of the greatest biodiversity on Earth. Enjoy peak turtle season in Tortuguero, when Pacific green sea turtles settle into their annual nesting pattern. On the new green season departure, Nat Hab makes an extended boat expedition in search of whales, particularly humpbacks, and dolphins during time exploring around Isla del Caño. In Monteverde’s cloud forest, resplendent quetzals and three-wattled bellbirds feed on abundant ripe avocados at this time of year, creating some of the best opportunities to encounter these threatened species in the wild. Nature is especially lively during the green season—the extra moisture tends to animate more birds and mammals in the canopy, as well as frogs, interesting insects and nocturnal wildlife.

 

Botswana’s Green Season Photo Safari
10 Days | From USD$11,795
Green Season Departures: November 2018 to March 2019

Botswana’s prolific wildlife is legendary, so it’s no wonder that it is a top destination for photography-focused African safaris. There’s nothing like seeing it during the “green season,” when intermittent rains bring dramatic skies, new grass and new animal life. Join accomplished photographers and naturalist guides on an adventure designed to reveal Botswana’s abundant wildlife and staggeringly diverse ecosystems, from the fossilized salt pans of the Kalahari Desert to the emerald marshes and sprawling channels of the Okavango Delta. Photograph wildlife in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve as it bursts to life during brief summer rains: where lush grasses lure throngs of wildebeest, springbok, gemsbok and other prey, while the region’s legendary black-maned lion, cheetah and other predators follow in close pursuit.

 

The Great Tanzania Migration Safari
8 Days | From USD$9,995
Green Season Departures: Dec 2018 to March 2019

On Africa’s Great Plains, each year, boundless herds of wildebeest and zebra traverse the Serengeti in search of new grass that sprouts with seasonal rains, and to birth their young. Lion and cheetah lie in wait, finely tuned hunting machines ready to stalk and take down the weakest members of the herds. In the center of the world’s greatest ancient migration route, wildlife lovers will join a small-group safari led by expert expedition leaders to witness a primal spectacle as the drama of predator and prey unfolds before them. Enjoy unparalleled seclusion, comfort and vintage safari atmosphere at Natural Habitat’s remote private camp, immersed in the wonder of one of the world’s truly epic wildlife events.
