THE HUNDREDS × G-SHOCK

CASIO G-SHOCK PARTNERS WITH THE HUNDREDS ON NEW 35TH ANNIVERSARY COLLABORATION TIMEPIECE 

First Available Exclusively at ComplexCon, Custom Design Elements Nod to Both Brands’ Anniversaries

 

Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces their second collaboration model in partnership with international streetwear brand The Hundreds – available first exclusively at ComplexCon this weekend. In celebration of G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary, as well as The Hundred’s 15th anniversary, the men’s timepiece features an updated DW5600 case in a matte-black colorway. With The Hundreds’ signature red, yellow and black colorway dynamically positioned on the face, the new model also features their brand ethos of “Blood Sweat & Years” on the watch strap.

 

Following a previous collaboration between the two fashion entities in 2012, the DW5600HDR-1 model nods to G-SHOCK’s original timepiece with a classic square face and compellingly simple yet distinctive design, as well as The Hundreds’ two signature logos on the strap and on the case back.

 

“Since we aspire to have a timeless brand, in handpicking our collaborators we seek out partners with classic legacies,” said Bobby Hundreds, founder of The Hundreds. “Casio G-SHOCK is a heritage player, having maintained relevance through design and quality over generations. When The Hundreds works with G-SHOCK, we’re not just making a watch, we are bridging our histories: A timepiece that stands the test of time.”

 

The Hundreds, a streetwear brand founded in Los Angeles in 2003, was inspired by California’s punk, hip-hop, skateboarding and surfing culture. Its products are now sold worldwide and have expanded to include eyewear.

 

A video was created to showcase the new timepiece. Take a look: http://bit.ly/gshxhrd

 

The DW5600HDR-1 will first be showcased at ComplexCon, a one-of-a-kind street culture festival in LA that is bringing together the top brands across pop culture, music, art, food, style, sports, innovation, activism, and education. The festival is taking place on November 3 and 4 in Long Beach, California.

 

In addition to a black IP case back, the DW5600HDR-1 timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:

 

  • 200M water resistance and shock resistance
  • EL backlight
  • Flash alert
  • Multi-function alarm
  • Hourly time signal
  • Stopwatch and countdown timer
  • 48.9mm case

 

The DW5600HDR-1 will retail for $160 and will be available for purchase exclusively at the G-SHOCK booth at ComplexCon from November 3 – 4, with a global release date of November 9 at select fashion boutiques, Macy’s, and gshock.com.

HERMOSA BEACH RE-CREATING

Hermosa Beach is re-creating the movie magic on its iconic pier by temporarily installing and lighting the 12 vintage-style street lamps that illuminated La La Land actor Ryan Gosling’s sunset stroll on the pier in the movie. The Lighthouse Cafe, a Hermosa Beach nightclub that served as the scene for jazz performances in the movie, is providing jazz musicians to perform on the pier for the lamp lighting nightly on Oct. 24, 25 and 26.
The Lighthouse Cafe is considered the epicenter of the West Coast jazz movement, hosting performances by many of the legendary jazz greats, including Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Chet Baker.
The lighting ceremonies and nightly jazz performances are previews for La La Land Day at the Beach on Oct. 27, when the City and Kinecta Federal Credit Union will host a celebration of the Academy Award winning movie and the City’s connections to jazz history. La La Land Day at the Beach will feature performances by the Lou Giovanetti Jazz Orchestra and professional dancers from 5-7 p.m. Friends of the Parks will then provide a free screening of the award-winning movie on a beachfront screen at 7:30 p.m.

Halloween Trends on YouTube

You might notice some familiar names with the Top 10 most popular costumes on YouTube this year: Two years after the release of Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn continues to show up as a popular costume idea on YouTube, while Disney characters Elsa and Anna from Frozen made their way back onto the list again (after dropping out in 2017). And, in parallel to its massive success on YouTube overall, Fortnite-themed costumes have broken into the Top 10 Halloween list this year, with costumes ideas from the game trending globally as well as in the US, UK, and Canada.

This year, we also took a closer look at which trending costumes are new to 2018’s ranking. Most notably: Fortnite, Stranger Things, and Mario Bros are trending this year, likely due to continued popularity around their corresponding games and titles.  Hocus Pocus-inspired costume ideas are also spiking in terms of views, just in time for the 25th anniversary of the movie’s debut. Here’s a look at some newcomers, ranked by views:

ROCK IN RIO

Pop fans can start celebrating. Rock In Rio, the world’s biggest music and entertainment festival, has just announced the line-up in the night dedicated to this genre. On October 5, 2019, the Rock City will welcome pop superstar P!nk, who debuts as headliner and ends the night performing her biggest hits.

 

On the same day, super group Black Eyed Peas – a debuting in the event – takes to the stage with a catalog of hymns such as “Where Is The Love?”, “I Gotta Feeling”, and “Lets Get It Started”. Brazilian singer Anitta, the first confirmed attraction of Rock in Rio 2019, opens the night. A fourth attraction, to complete the line-up, will still be announced.

 

Rock in Rio 2019 will take place on September 27, 28 and 29, October 3, 4, 5 and 6, at the Rock City, which will occupy the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Park for the second consecutive edition. Rock in Rio Cards (a ticket that entitles you to go to the festival before all attractions are announced) will go on sale on November 12 this year, starting at 7:00 pm, at www.rockinrio.com.

 

Created in 1985, the festival has had 19 editions, 112 days and 2,038 musical attractions. Over 33 years of history, it has had an audience of more than 9.5 million people. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Rock in Rio also conquered Portugal, Spain and the United States.

 

 

CHECK OUT THE ATTRACTIONS

 

P!nk – The first time of the superstar in Brazil. The critically acclaimed “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” kicked off in Phoenix, USA, last March, and has touched audiences across America, Australia and New Zealand. With a career of more than 20 years, P!nk has seven studio albums, a collection of top hits, and sold 50 million copies, more than 75 million singles, 2.4 million DVDs worldwide, and had 15 singles on Billboard Hot 100 list’s top 10 (four #1). Plus, among other awards, she won three Grammy Awards (19 nominations).

Black Eyed Peas – In addition to classic hits, the band will be releasing “Ring The Alarm Pt 1, Pt 2 and Pt 3″” and “Big Love”, from the group’s seventh studio album entitled ‘Masters of The Sun”, which is being launched. Formed by will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo, the Black Eyed Peas is a multi-platinum band with more than 35 million albums sold worldwide, leading the world charts. The artists have won six Grammys and eight American Music Awards throughout their careers.

Anitta – After performing at Rock in Rio Lisboa, the Brazilian singer prepares to land in the Brazilian Rock City for the first time. The artist was elected the 15th most influential artist in the world on social networks (leaving names like Lady Gaga, Shakira and Rihanna behind) by US magazine Billboard. Anitta stood out with several singles like “Sim ou Não”, a duet with Maluma; “Loka”, by Simone & Simaria; and “Sua Cara”, with Major Lazer and Pabllo Vittar. The latter broke world records as the most viewed video in 24 hours in 2017, and the fastest in history to reach a million likes.

DREI ROS × “LIT”

“LIT” – Drei Ros, Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Gragun & Tray Haggerty:

Romanian born music artist Drei Ros has spent years spicing up tracks for artists such as Pusha T, Gucci Mane and Kap G. Today, he added to his already impressive collection of hit collaborations with his latest single “LIT” featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Cragun and Tray Haggerty.

Drei was additionally recently featured on the Latina trap track “Bomberos” alongside Latino/Urbano duo Los Rakas and produced by DJ duo Breakfast N Vegas. The successful single was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday Latin’ and ‘Beast Mode’ playlists. Both new singles come in anticipation of Drei’s forthcoming debut album “Excuse My Accent,” produced by by 808 Mafia (who produced tracks for Future, Drake, Migos, Travis Scott, DJ Khaled, etc.). The album, which shows a never-before-heard side of Drei as an artist, is set to release October 2018.

Drei has endured grand success in a short amount of time, leading up to the creation of his debut album. He officially began his career in 2009, teaming up with artists Burre Collins and Dyce Dylli to form the band B.O.S.S. (“building our success story”). His infectious Romanian accent added intrigue to his English raps, and brought quick success to several B.O.S.S. singles – ultimately leading to the curation of the band’s album and a tour of the Pacific Northwest.

Still new to the music industry and experimenting with his sound, Drei teamed up with more artists of different backgrounds to dabble with adding his own creative style to a multitude of genres. He’s since paired up with the likes of Jamaican Reggae legend Junior Reid, Alex Mica, Evelyn, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, Krisha, etc. In 2016, Drei’s music video went viral for “Shake Dat Monkey” featuring JBo of the Youngbloodz (and Messiah on the Latin remix), garnering 3.3M+ YouTube views. Continuing his history of successful collabs in 2017, Drei released the singles “Ordinary Day” featuring Pack The Arcade and “I Need You” featuring Marvelus Fame and Bel. At the beginning of 2018, Drei teamed up with J Romero and Kap G to create “Loco” with an accompanying music video, which has already garnered 1.2M+ views on YouTube alone.

Now, Drei is out to show the world his own sound by releasing an album of his original tracks with “Excuse My Accent.” The trap album mixes English and Spanish languages, giving it the edge of an international appeal. With his Romanian roots and the lessons from his many collaborations molded into the foundation of the artist he has become, Drei’s album will have hints of his past creations – but overall be a never-before-heard music brand for fans that fully embodies this musical mastermind of ‘Drei Ros’ as an artist.
