FISHER Releases “You Little Beauty”

Grammy -nominated DJ and producer FISHER has dropped new single “You Little Beauty,” released today, May 10th. Listen to the track HERE.

The track, which samples the vocals of late disco and house legend Loleatta Holloway, is released via the Australian artist’s own Catch & Release label and Astralwerks. The track evoked a particularly strong reaction when dropped in the midst of FISHER’s massively well-received set at Coachella last month.

“You Little Beauty” marks the larger-than-life character’s first release of 2019, following on from last years “Losing It.” An instant hit, the track has now racked up more than 66 million Spotify streams.

This preceded a sold out Catch & Release party at Miami Music Week, and FISHER’s summer is shaping up to be just as busy. With slots at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and Movement Detroit before the end of the month, he will then embark on an extensive European tour, taking in Parklife, Lovebox, Leeds & Reading, and more.

FISHER is also set to partner with Solardo and Camelphat for a brand-new weekly Ibiza residency. Titled Bodyworks, they will take over Hï Ibiza every Tuesday from June 25th to September 24th.

Known for his wild sense of humor and energetic DJing style, FISHER first burst onto the US electronic scene with tracks “Stop It” and “Ya Kidding” and has since become one of the scene’s most in- demand talents.

Arriving just in time for summer, “You Little Beauty” has all the makings of a track set to take both charts and dance floors by storm.

Bene Drops “Evil Spider”

Hailing from the suburbs of Auckland, 19-year-old indie pop artist Bene returns with her latest single “Evil Spider,” out today—listen HERE! Coming off the heels of her Gold-Certified hit “Soaked,” the up and coming singer and songwriter also announces her upcoming debut EP is set for release on June 28.
 
Of “Evil Spider,” Bene says, “‘Evil Spider’ is about wanting someone that’s already taken. When writing the song, I didn’t wanna make the lyrics too obviously evil, so I thought I’d turn myself into the spider, making it a lil lighter and making the song revolve around me weaving webs to lure the person, catch ‘em like a spider then reel them in. I remember humming ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ in the studio, which inspired the playful vibe of the song.”
 
Bene has emerged as New Zealand’s artist to watch with her chart-topping hit “Soaked,” which quickly climbed Spotify’s Viral Charts, accumulated over 17 million streams to date, charted on Australia’s Triple J radio’s Hottest 100 of 2018 and held the number one spot on New Zealand’s Shazam Top 100 for two months, not to mention achieved Gold Certification in New Zealand and Australia. With endorsements from Zane Lowe and Apple’s Beats1 radio, Bene went from playing her first small club gig to her first arena show—opening for longtime role model Lily Allen—in a matter of months. 

In support of “Evil Spider” and her upcoming debut EP, Bene will be performing at New York’s Mercury Lounge on June 17. Tickets are available now HERE.

From the moment the band took the stage, the theatre was filled with the sound of fans cheering nonstop.

The set then continued with a mashup of “Nap of a Star” and an acoustic version of “Our Summer”.
 
Closing the showcase with their first hit single “CROWN”, TOMORROW X TOGETHER said “Just like the title of our debut album, it feels like we have made such an amazing first dream chapter.

Grand Opening: Kachi Lodge in Bolivia

The Switzerland-based luxury camp experience specialists of Amazing Escapes announce the grand opening of Kachi Lodge, the first luxury dome lodge on the Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia. Located at the foot of Tunupa volcano at an altitude of 11,800 ft, Kachi Lodge rises out of Bolivia’s Altiplano like a surreal space station. Intentionally designed to offer stellar views of the world’s largest salt flats and the star-studded sky, the interiors have a minimalist setup that embraces the landscape’s natural setting. Whether an adventure seeker or astrophysicist, guests will be mesmerized by the Kachi Lodge’s 6 luxury bedroom pods and oversized lounge dome set up on the wooden deck above the dazzling surface of the Salar. The individual pods offer guests the comfort of a hotel room with a private bathroom, plush and cozy bedding and stylish interior decoration.

Guests of this otherworldly lodge are invited to dine in a central dome filled with cozy lanterns and oversized hemp cushions that add to the dramatic ambiance. Kachi Lodge takes great pride in delivering authentic and inventive cuisine, partnering with the award-winning Gustu Restaurant and school in La Paz. The team has established strong relationships with its local suppliers and aims to showcase the great potential of the country’s production, culture, and biodiversity. 

The staff, which includes a camp leader, a chef and bilingual activity guides, goes above and beyond to satisfy creature comforts and truly create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Kachi Lodge is passionate about providing guests with new and unusual ways to discover the already popular Uyuni Salt Flats. 

The high-tech, all-in-one water system provides running hot and cold water and simultaneously recycles it in a closed loop, minimizing consumption in a system that is virtually self sufficient. Kachi Lodge is a low environmental impact structure and in addition to the water treatment unit working in a closed loop, all of the systems are powered by solar energy only.

Gaston Ugalde, the most well-known contemporary artist in Bolivia, has created unique pieces of art that are installed throughout the Kachi Lodge as well as outdoor art installations on the Salar that are also available for sale. In his work, Ugalde engages the Bolivian landscape, as well as plants and fabrics intrinsic to traditions within Andean culture, and transforms them into contemporary collages, photographs and installations that speak of commerce, politics and spiritual disconnectedness. By combining the history and geography of his country with creative intervention and juxtaposition, he is able to pose universal questions to his audience about their connection to humanity.

Rates start from $1,980 per person based on double occupancy and include a two-night stay, airport transfers, activities, and full board by Gustu. Kachi Lodge is located on Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats. The closest airport is 60 miles away from the lodge through the flats, and a two-night minimum stay is required.

The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In addition to performing at festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Firefly, and beyond, they supported Florence + the Machine on a high-profile arena tour.

Hardy Caprio x DigDat “Gluten Tag”

Fast rising British rapper Hardy Caprio has released new single ‘Guten Tag’ via Virgin EMI today.

A collaboration with formidable London rapper DigDat ‘Guten Tag’ is the latest track to be taken from Hardy’s highly anticipated debut album set for release this summer. The perfect recipe for a vibe filled summer the video was directed by previous collaborator Wowa and continues to tilt a hat at Hardy’s success. 

Known as one of the game’s biggest hitters, DigDat’s tales from the jailhouse and the roads combined his immersive imagery and witty wordplay has established his place in the UK scene. The remix of his song ‘Air Force‘, featuring UK rap heavyweights Krept & Konan and K Trap, reached the Top 20 in the Official Singles Chart and made drill history in the process.

‘Guten Tag’ drops off the back of a stellar rise for Hardy Caprio. Most people would be absolutely delighted to either achieve a first-class degree in accountancy or to launch a thriving rap career. Incredibly Hardy Caprio did both at the same time.  After gatecrashing the UK rap scene, the charismatic young south Londoner has been on a vertical rise making waves and scoring chart hits with summery r’n’b-rap like Unsigned and Best Life, (both feat. One Acen), and the harder-edged dancefloor swagger of Rapper.  He has sold more than 1 million singles, sold out two national tours (many of which sold out within minutes of going on sale) and accomplished a gold and two silver records in one calendar year. 

Earmarked by The Guardian as an artist who’s “on the edge of breakthrough” and GRM Daily as “a rapper that is going to blow” and described by The Independent as “poised to break into the mainstream”, Hardy has delivered on the hype, cementing his reputation as an upcoming British MC to watch.

Following the release of ‘Guten Tag’ x DigDat, this year will see Hardy perform at a string of festivals over the summer and release his debut album.
