Oasis Festival Drops 2019 Lineup

The fifth edition of Oasis Festival takes place back where the story first began, namely the stunning Fellah Hotel in Marrakech. It is here in this picture perfect location that revellers can soak up the sun, dance beneath the stars, lounge amongst tropical gardens and cool off in crystal clear swimming pools, all soundtracked by a forward-thinking line-up of electronic music’s finest.

The third and final wave of names brings a healthy Detroit contingent, with the intoxicating DJ styles of Theo Parrish, unbridled charisma of house renegade Moodymann and uncompromising techno selections of DJ Bone. Anything could happen with the back-to-back between Ibiza stars Cassy and Eats Everything, while deep and smoky house from Berlin favourite Dana Ruh and left-of-centre rhythms from Pampa’s Robag Wruhme will add plenty of new flavours to the already eclectic line-up.

Next to high profile DJ sets, some of dance music’s best live shows will also land at Oasis Festival, including throwback house and disco act Hercules & Love Affair, raw, lo-fi warehouse specialists Paranoid London and the expertly nuanced electronics of Baltra.

As ever, there is a vital local contingent at this year’s event, including Moroko Loko founder and veteran of every single Oasis Festival, Amine K, local figurehead Polyswitch, old school house man Malik, rising star Monile and newcomers Massimo and Nomads.

Bringing an all out aural assault will be the electrifying Anastasia Kristensen, while slick tech star Archie Hamilton, Scottish party starter Eclair Fifi and dream-state house, raw hip hop and psyched out darkwave innovator 박혜진 Park Hye Jin complete the line-up, along with a special DJ set from Chromeo.

This latest wave of names top off an impressive roster of talent, including Amelie Lens, Apollonia, Dixon B2B Âme, Four Tet, Jayda G, Loco Dice, Mall Grab, Sonja Moonear, and Seth Troxler, as well as strong selection of Moroccan talents like Casa Voyager’s Driss Bennis and eclectic selector Yasmean, all of which ensures that Oasis Festival’s fifth edition is set to be the best yet.

All this plays out against the backdrop of the breathtaking Atlas Mountains, along with a rich arts and culture programme, daily yoga and mouthwatering local cuisine, making this one of the most unforgettable and authentic musical holiday experiences anywhere in the world.

ASHS “Cold” Music Video

Today, dark pop act ASHS allowed fans into the darkest corners of her mind, unveiling the spine-tingling new music video for her track “Cold,” which was released as part of her latest project, 3AM Pt. 2. The EP was available on March 8 through Wax Records / Casablanca Records (US)/ Polydor (UK) / Universal Music Canada. Stream or download the full record here.

 

Of the new video, ASHS comments, ‘I wanted to keep this video very simple and clean. It is meant to represent the idea of being smothered and suffocated by the people around you who don’t have your best intentions in mind.”

 

While ASHS’ face remains veiled, the buzz-worthy artist continues to paint a clear image of herself through her provocative visuals and strikingly honest lyrics. As with everything ASHS touches, this video gracefully navigates anonymity while shedding light on the inner workings of this mysterious artist. With new music coming, fans are quickly learning to expect the unexpected from ASHS.

Pi’erre Bourne “The Life of Pi’erre 4”

One of the most innovative forces in the rap game today, Pi’erre Bourne takes his artistry to whole new heights on his long-awaited new project The Life of Pi’erre 4, out now on SossHouse/ Interscope Records. With every song written, produced, engineered, and arranged all on his own, the album again shows the uncompromising originality he’s revealed in producing Billboard Hot 100 hits like Playboi Carti’s double-platinum smash “Magnolia,” and Travis Scott’s “Watch” ft. Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West. Praised by Complex for “redefining trap music,” the 25-year-old artist/producer now brings his creative integrity to a lo-fi yet high-energy sound that’s emotionally powerful and entirely unpredictable.

Check out Drake showing love for Pi’erre’s new project below:  

Tomorrow, Pi’erre will be hosting a show live on NTS Radio at 12pm PST. Listen here: https://www.nts.live

Born in Kansas under the name Jordan Jenks, Pi’erre lived between the Carolinas and Belize during his childhood. He also spent a great deal of time in Queens, New York, where an uncle taught him to use FruityLoops and encouraged him to start making his own music while Pi’erre was still in elementary school. Pi’erre later studied music engineering at the SAE Institute in Atlanta, and soon earned significant cash by recording for local artists. After making his name as a producer, he landed an engineering job at Epic Records, where he quickly found himself in high demand among fast-rising artists like Young Nudy.

During his time at Epic, Pi’erre dedicated his off-hours to working on his own projects, dropping the first installment of his Life of Pi’erre series in September 2016. With both The Life of Pi’erre 2 and The Life of Pi’erre 3 arriving in the next few months, he left Epic at the end of that year in order to devote more time to his own music. As he continued producing for artists like Jay Critch, Big Sean, and Playboi Carti, Pi’erre moved forward with the making of The Life of Pi’erre 4, and in late 2017 scored an artist deal with Interscope Records. 

Since signing with Interscope, Pi’erre has toured with the likes of Drake, Nudy, and Carti, in addition to launching SossHouse (his own Interscope imprint,) and generating buzz with recent singles like “Hacked My Instagram” and “Marie Curie.” In the midst of bringing The Life of Pi’erre 4 to life, he also teamed up with Nudy for the critically acclaimed album Sli’merre—a May 2019 release named one of the year’s best rapper/producer collaborations by Pitchfork, who hailed Pi’erre as “one of the most interesting contemporary rap producers.”

Mark Diamond “Hummingbird”

Rising Seattle singer, songwriter and guitarist Mark Diamond unveils his latest song “Hummingbird” today via Stardog Records/Republic Records.

Listen to “Hummingbird” HERE!

“Hummingbird” arrives hot off the heels of Diamond’s debut EP Hummingbird One released in the spring, which Ones To Watch hailed as “an impeccable EP filled with indie-pop perfection.” Hummingbird One features fan-favorite tracks “Steady” and “Road.” Not to mention, Diamond has amassed almost 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and counting.  

Of “Hummingbird,” Mark says, “This song was the birth of a new version of myself. It was letting a side of me out that I didn’t know was there. I’ll never forget that moment when I started singing the melody. Honestly, I think I just started laughing at first because it felt so freeing and different than anything I’d done before. I think as creatives and as people, we all have multiple versions of ourselves. It’s important to let some of those see the light of day sometimes.”

Stay tuned for more new music from Mark Diamond out this summer!

At 25 years old, Mark Diamond is a Seattle native who grew up listening to Tom Petty, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Beatles, R.E.M and Robbie Williams with his dad in his 1969 Chevy Malibu. Up until recently, Mark, now based in Los Angeles, was living in Seattle and working at a coffee shop for the last four years. He has been hard at work on his upcoming project with his debut song, “Steady,” leading the way. The song is included in a very large arsenal of finished tracks that he completed in 24 days with talented writer and producer Richard Craker, writing and recording in both London and Los Angeles. With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”

 

Maggie Lindemann x Travis Barker “Friends Go”

On Maggie Lindemann‘s latest single, ‘Friends Go,’ the 20-year-old treads the line between modernist and throwback. The starlet embraces this duality with the help of Blink 182’s Travis Barker by putting a punk twist on the recent single which explores feelings of disconnect at a time in which technology has made people closer than ever before.

“I wanted to do a version of friends go that had a bit more of a punk feel because that’s my favorite type of music,” Maggie explained. “When I first recorded the song, I wanted to do multiple versions. I feel like the song is very versatile and wanted to kinda explore different genres! I love the Travis version, it’s one of my favorite songs I’ve done.”

Maggie Lindemann has been adventurously investigating her sound and identity since breaking through with the global pop smash ‘Pretty Girl.’ From that track’s laser-sharp pop focus to the darker, revealingly vulnerable recent tracks ‘Human’ and ‘Would I,’ Maggie has demonstrated a brave desire to tackle bold new ideas while amassing over a billion streams.

“Friends Go” commences Maggie’s build-up to her first full-length project which is set to be released later in the year. The video for the song garnered over one million streams in 48 hours. Maggie has begun to emerge as an icon of her generation, with over a billion audio streams, 175 million views at YouTube, 6 million followers across her social platforms, and an international array of Platinum awards. Most recently touring stateside with Sabrina Carpenter she’s also performed with Khalid and Troye Sivan.

Maggie has been further celebrated in the world of fashion. She launched her single ‘Obsessed’ with an innovative partnership with the make-up brand Pat McGrath and recently teamed up with Skinny Dip for a sunglasses collaboration. She’s also unveiled her own merch line in the shape of SWIXXZ, which is now being sold in stores by skate apparel chain, Zumiez.

Wienerschnitzel Takes on AAF’s National Student Advertising Competition

Wienerschnitzel and the American Advertising Federation (AAF) are pleased to announce that Ithaca College is the winner of the AAF’s 2019 National Student Advertising Competition (NSAC). As the official corporate sponsor/client of the competition, Wienerschnitzel provided a “real-world” marketing challenge to over 2,000 advertising and marketing college students nationwide.

Wienerschnitzel challenged the teams to elevate consumer perception, and encourage them to understand the truths about the misconceptions surrounding one of America’s favorite foods: the hot dog. By changing the perception of the hot dog, with Wienerschnitzel leading the charge, it would have a great benefit to the hot dog industry as well as to its business.  

“We were very excited to sponsor this competition, and view the incredible talent and creativity of all participants,” said Wienerschnitzel Chief Marketing Officer Doug Koegeboehn. “Congratulations to the Ithaca College team, which created an outstanding campaign that we look forward to utilizing in our marketing. They clearly understood that consumers have false information on the quality of hot dogs and did a great job communicating that hot dogs are actually made with great cuts of meat, just like any other sandwich you would buy at your favorite deli. At Wienerschnitzel, we were thrilled to utilize our partnership with AAF to be a part of this important competition.”

The Wienerschnitzel challenge was the first of its kind in the NSAC’s 46-year history. “Previous sponsors have tasked teams to provide a solution that focused on their brand’s product or service,” explained AAF Chief Operating Officer Constance Cannon Frazier. “The fact that Wienerschnitzel’s marketing challenge would benefit the entire hot dog industry was extremely exciting to the teams and speaks volumes about the brand.”

Wienerschnitzel, the world’s largest hot dog chain, serves more than 120 million hot dogs annually. Fueled by a mission of “Serving Food to Serve Others,” the company also gives a percentage of its profits back to its charitable partners.

The final leg of the NSAC competition was at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida June 6–7, in conjunction with ADMERICA, AAF’s national conference. Only the top eight teams which qualified from AAF districts and semi-finals competed in the finals. The second place award went to Liberty University, and the third place award to Syracuse University. Other finalists included Columbia College Chicago, Johnson & Wales University Providence, South Dakota State University, Southern Methodist University, and University of Alabama. 

J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams Make Their Marvel Comics Debut With SPIDER-MAN #1

The secret is out! This September, legendary filmmaker J.J. Abrams (Star Wars, Star Trek, Super 8) and his son Henry Abrams will co-write SPIDER-MAN, a five-issue limited series years in the making, with art by the incredible Sara Pichelli (Miles Morales, Guardians Of The Galaxy) and cover art by the amazing Olivier Coipel!

Speaking to The New York Times, J.J. teased, “The story shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before.”

“Spider-Man is one of those super heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him,” added Henry. “He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”

Together, the father-son duo will introduce fans to a mysterious new villain named Cadaverous – whose identity remains to be seen…but what do they have planned for Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson?!

All will be revealed this fall in SPIDER-MAN #1!

 

For more information on this exciting new limited series, check out the announcement video on Marvel’s social channels or visit Marvel.com.
