The Chemical Brothers

THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS REVEAL STUNNING REWORK OF 1999 CLASSIC “OUT OF CONTROL” FROM AUSTRALIAN ELECTRONIC PIONEERS,THE AVALANCHES
LEGENDARY ELECTRONIC DUO NOMINATED FOR THREE GRAMMY® AWARDS FOR ACCLAIMED ALBUM NO GEOGRAPHY 

Listen To “Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love Mix)” Here.

View Visualizer Here.

Having supported The Chemical Brothers on their recent Australian tour, The Avalanches have produced a special remix tribute to the 20th anniversary of the classic album, Surrender. “Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love Mix)” is a revelation. The Avalanches take the track on a trip towards a West Coast sunset. Along the way, they manage to tilt the claustrophobic electronic drive of the original off its axis, creating a gorgeous, pulsating drift of celestial house music in the process. Listen to “Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love Mix)” via Astralwerks HERE.

This remix of “Out Of Control” is an edit taken from a longer Surrender-inspired piece The Avalanches created that is due for release in the future.

“Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love Mix)” is accompanied by a brand-new screen print from original Surrender artwork designer Kate Gibb using the original film from 1999. Gibb has also helped to create a truly stunning visualizer for the track alongside graphic artist Jimmy Turrell – watch it HERE.

“Out Of Control” was the third single taken from Surrender and featured vocals by New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. The deluxe reissue of Surrender – featuring hours of unreleased material and a blu-ray of the band’s Glastonbury 2000 Pyramid Stage headline set – is out now HERE.

The Avalanches latest album, Wildflower, was released to critical acclaim in 2016 via Astralwerks. Pitchfork called the album “better than just about any music ever made.” “Out Of Control” is the duo’s first official remix since 2013.

Just last week, The Chemical Brothers received three GRAMMY® Award nominations, rounding the duo’s total nomination count to a staggering 14. Their hugely acclaimed ninth album, No Geography, was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album, while single “Got To Keep On” received a nod for Best Dance Recording and the video for “We’ve Got To Try,” which was created in partnership with premiere auto racing group Formula 1, was nominated for Best Music Video. Of the clip, Rolling Stone said, “The electronic duo’s pulsating new song is intensified by its video.” The Chemical Brothers have won four GRAMMY® Awards. The 62nd GRAMMY® Awards will take place on January 26, 2020. 

Surrender 20th Anniversary Deluxe Reissue available now HERE.

Big Willie Robinson: “Larger Than Life”

LA Times Studios today launched “Larger Than Life,” a docu-series about legendary Los Angeles street racer Big Willie Robinson. Reported and hosted by Times staff writer Daniel Miller, the seven-part podcast series tells the true story of a street racer who united Los Angeles — but left behind a tangle of questions. Watch the trailer here.

In 1960s Los Angeles, after the catastrophic Watts Riots, a legendary character emerged — one who found an unexpected way to bring people together, across race and class. Big Willie, a 6-foot-6, muscle-bound gearhead, used street racing to heal a city torn apart by violence. Cops and criminals, movie stars and miscreants, even Crips and Bloods — out at the drag strip, Big Willie could get them all to see eye to eye.

His street diplomacy eased racial tensions and united L.A. But what caused Big Willie to fade into obscurity? Exploring the life and legacy of L.A.’s “King of the Street,” the series shares never-before-revealed details uncovered through Miller’s investigative work, as well as personal stories from Willie’s inner circle, including members of the International Brotherhood of Street Racers.

The first two episodes are available now, everywhere podcasts are available (AppleSpotifyStitcher), with episodes dropping each week. Listeners can also discover bonus content for each episode on latimes.com, including exclusive footage, images and more. An essay about the project by Daniel Miller will be available in the Sunday edition of the newspaper on July 14.

With over 21 million monthly listeners on Spotify, the 29-year-old rapper has taken the hip hop world by storm over the last few years. In addition to releasing music as a solo artist, Tyga has collaborated with Marshmello, Post Malone, YG, Tory Lanez, Ally Brooke, Sheenseea, and more. In addition to having one of the biggest songs of the summer, “Taste” received a BET Nomination for Best Collaboration. The single also broke into the top 10 on the Hot 100 chart.

In celebration of the new album, iHeartMedia will host iHeartRadio LIVE with Tyga at the iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles on June 5. The special event will feature an intimate first performance of songs from the new album, plus an exclusive interview co-hosted by iHeartRadio on-air personality, J Cruz from REAL 92.3’s The Cruz Show and CEO of Hollywood Unlocked and Host of Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored. The event will broadcast live across iHeartMedia’s Urban and Rhythm radio stations, and video stream live across all FOX-owned Television Stations’ websites at 7pm PT/10pm ET and on DishNation.com, website for FOX’s syndicated entertainment program Dish Nation.

Pirelli × Carl Lewis

“Power is nothing without control” is the slogan that for exactly 25 years has accompanied the Pirelli brand throughout the world. The company is thus dedicating its 2018 Annual Report to this famous catch phrase, celebrating its anniversary with stories by three international writers, a video and a series of photographic images which propose a few of its many possible interpretations.

The fortunate launch of the ‘Power is nothing without control’ campaign depicted by Carl Lewis, photographed by Annie Leibowitz, in the classic position of a sprinter in the starting blocks while wearing high-heeled red shoes – an image which has become legendary. The photograph, taken in Texas in 1994 and an icon of advertising creativity, conveys a message that has lasted through the years because it is rooted in the product, the tire, and at the same time able to go beyond the limits of the material: in a car, as in life, “power is nothing without control”. A timeless reflection whose interpretations are inexhaustible because it has left it to the men and women of every era to find a point of balance between two seemingly contradictory elements.

This exercise in synthesis also involves the three American authors involved in the Pirelli’s 2018 Annual Report – Adam Greenfield, Lisa Halliday and J.R. Moehringer – with each proposing a personal interpretation of power and control in spheres also related to Pirelli: technology, sport and culture.

For Adam Greenfield, in a piece centered on technology, “the distinction between power and control ranks among the central challenges of our time. Our Promethean technologies offer us more and more power by the day, but the plain fact is that we haven’t yet learned how to control them.”

J.R. Moehringer, in his story dedicated to sport, writes: “We all make the mistake now and then of thinking the great athletes, actors, painters, doctors, entrepreneurs, et al., are gifted with special powers. In fact everyone has special powers. The ones who succeed are the ones who find ways of achieving durable, consistent control over their powers.

In “Hurrying Slowly”, a reflection on art and culture, Lisa Halliday states: “Art is a journey, a distance traveled by the consciousness. This is true for both artist and viewer, performer and audience, writer and reader. The power that propels such a journey is nothing without control because control is what harnesses artistic potential and directs it.

A video made by the Young&Rubicam agency, which 25 years ago came up with the Carl Lewis campaign, accompanies the three authors’ works. It depicts power as an interior force that pushes man to always go beyond and control as an indispensable factor in the achievement of any goal. The concepts contained in the video are also illustrated through a series of photographs that enrich the print version of the Annual Report.

“Power is nothing without control”: a story a quarter of a century old

The photograph of Carl Lewis with the headline “Power is nothing without control” opened the way for an advertising campaign that was so successful that to this day it continues to identify Pirelli.

Following on from Annie Leibowitz’s photograph, the following year Gerard di Thame directed a TV commercial in Carl Lewis runs a mad race full of special effects across the New York skyline. The final race’s images reveal the secret: the sole of Carl Lewis’s foot engraved with the tread pattern the Pirelli P6000 tire.

Pirelli entrusted its image to Carl Lewis until 1996. The following year, the French athlete Marie-José Pérec, then the fastest woman in the world, takes his place. The Pirelli commercial is set in a place of ice and lava with sea monsters, molten flows and other dangers from which the sprinter manages to escape once again wearing the tread of a Pirelli tire.

Then, 1998 was the year of Ronaldo, whose image from behind on the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro becomes an instant icon even outside the advertising world.

Pirelli Annual Report from culture to innovation

Since 2010, Pirelli’s Annual Report has undergone a transformation – thanks to the contribution of personalities from the worlds of art and culture of international standing – from “simple” reports to communication tools able to recount through different forms a year of company life. The 2010 Annual, for example, was illustrated with student photographs, inspired by the theme of sustainability, from Naba di Milano, while the following year, Pirelli’s Annual Report was enhanced with 18 illustrations by the graphic artist Stefan Glerum. In 2012, New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly enriched the Annual Report and in 2013, instead, the author and screenplay writer Hanif Kureishi engaged ten young international talents to rework the idea of the “wheel” in the“Spinning the Wheel” project. In 2014, “street art” took centre stage in Pirelli’s Integrated Annual Report, with works from Brazil’s Marina Zumi, Germany’s Dome and Russia’s Alexey Luka, assembled into a single pyramid shaped display at Pirelli HangarBicocca. The next year Pirelli called upon the Russian artist Pokras Lampas, an exponent of modern calligraphy, to interpret the value of being “unique” through two things: handwriting and fingerprints. The volume was entitled “Every Mark is Unique”. In 2017, in conclusion, Pirelli wanted to use the Annual Report to tell the story of the company’s digital transformation in “Data meets passion”, flanking Pirelli’s own story with those of those of five 4.0 artisans who used digital technologies to grow their companies. The volume’s artistic and literary content was the work of artist Emiliano Ponzi and three internationally recognized writers: Mohsin Hamid, Tom McCarthy and Ted Chiang.

DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

The official video for “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, directed by Colin Tilley, is out now. A sneak peak of the video first aired tonight in a commercial spot in partnership with YouTube Music during the American Music Awards.

Watch the video HERE.

Currently the most-streamed song in the world on Spotify for a week straight now, “Taki Taki” marks the second global number one record for the French DJ/producer (his first being “Lean On” ft. , his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer), and a first number one for Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, who is the first female rapper to top the chart.

In addition, “Taki Taki” has peaked as the #2 song in the world on iTunes, and reached #1 on iTunes in 25 countries. Meanwhile, it’s also peaked as the #1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S.

The worldwide smash success of “Taki Taki” was boosted by Spotify’s recent launch of Global X — a new playlist full of rhythmic crossover hits from cultures around the world. Spotify accompanied the playlist’s launch with a unique vertical video for the bilingual, Latin-music-infused “Taki Taki,” which the platform hails as “a true mix of cultures.”

DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber reached a billion streams on Spotify. That achievement makes him only the fifth artist in Spotify history (along with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and The Chainsmokers) to have two songs earn a billion streams each on the platform. DJ Snake first hit the billion-stream mark with “Lean On” ft. MØ, his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer.

Having toured the world this summer, DJ Snake will return to the U.S. this fall for two very special shows. This Halloween season, the world-class producer will headline sold-out dates at New York City’s Avant Gardner (on October 26) and L.A.’s legendary Shrine (on October 31).

With its worldly rhythms and infectious energy, “Taki Taki” continues DJ Snake’s track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club record of the summer: his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim. “Taki Taki” arrives ahead of DJ Snake’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop soon.
