Her Returns With “Neighborhood”

Today, Her unveils the live video for “Neighborhood” filmed at Studio La Fabrique in Paris—watch and share HERE! The video, directed by Rodrigue Huart, is part of the upcoming film “Are You Still Here” set for release this November.

“Neighborhood” is taken from Her’s critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album released earlier this year, which also features the band’s hit tracks, “We Choose,” “On & On” (feat. AnnenMayKantereit & Roméo Elvis) and “Icarus.” Listen to Her here.

While still in school, the half-German Victor Solf and the French Simon Carpentier met in 2007, bonded like long lost brothers, started making music together equally informed by old school soul a la Otis Redding and post-Yeezus hip-hop and formed Her in 2015. Success followed as the breakout “Five Minutes” soundtracked Apple’s “Shot on iPhone” campaign and eventually generated over 12 million Spotify streams. The duo released a pair of EPs Her Tape #1 and Her Tape #2, spawning fan favorites such as “Quite Like,” “Union,” “Her” and amassing over 20 million cumulative Spotify streams. Merging artfully seductive and provocative visuals and dreamy newer wave pop with a jazz undercurrent, the boys crisscrossed the globe in support of the EPs, including making waves stateside. In the middle of it all, unbeknownst to anyone but those closest to him, Simon lost a long, quiet and arduous battle with cancer in August 2017. With his friend’s spirit always close by, Victor worked on what would become the duo’s 2018 major label full-length debut, Her [Republic Records].

HER releases video for ‘Icarus’

Today, Her returns with the video for their latest single, “Icarus”—watch here. The song was written by frontman Victor Solf in memory of his best friend and co-founder of Her, Simon Carpentier. The video was directed by French film director Rodrigue Huart for Studio+, and it features various symbols from past Her videos, “Queens,” “SWIM,” and “Blossom Roses,” which represent renewal, hope and melancholy.

Of the song, Solf says, “‘Icarus’ is a song that I wrote in memory of Simon, and it explains why I am continuing now. This video is very special to me because it tells the whole story of Her in one video. Core fans will be able to recognize several symbols from our past videos.”

“Icarus” is taken from Her’s critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album released earlier this year—listen here. The debut album also features Her’s hit tracks, “We Choose,” “Neighborhood” and “On & On” (feat. AnnenMayKantereit & Roméo Elvis).

The duo released a pair of EPs Her Tape #1 and Her Tape #2, spawning fan favorites such as “Quite Like,” “Union,” “Her” and amassing over 20 million cumulative Spotify streams. Merging artfully seductive and provocative visuals and dreamy newer wave pop with a jazz undercurrent, the boys crisscrossed the globe in support of the EPs, including making waves stateside.

The Mayumi: All-Inclusive Residential Stay

The Mayumi, a new residential concept by HQ Development, is set to open April 2018 in Los Angeles. Located in the epicenter of Culver City, California, this new space has been fashioned into a remarkable 35-unit flexible-stay residence catering to long-term visitors looking for a monthly all-inclusive residential stay alternative and creative space.

 

Mayumi provides the best of both worlds – a private haven and social hub. Created to provide an unparalleled living experience crafted on a foundation of design, flexibility and community, Mayumi members can enjoy luxurious private rooms and common areas to connect with others.

 

Each member is provided their own unit, with an ensuite private restroom featuring a soft water system and rain shower. An in-room touchscreen managing lights, shades and thermostat provides full control of the environment right at the member’s fingertips, as well as a 50-inch Smart TV with DirectTV service.

 

The innovative concept is a natural fit for HQ Development, whose projects throughout Culver City, Hollywood and Santa Monica have attracted heavyweight companies in creative industries as its tenants. With the opening of Mayumi, HQ Development will mark its entry into the residential market and similarly endow the surrounding neighborhoods with a thriving energy. As Robert Herscu remarks, “Our intent is to make Mayumi synonymous with luxury, flexibility and comfort. Our drive to create a distinctive living experience is as fierce as our residents’ passion to make their mark in LA.”

 

Additional flexible stay locations are currently in development, with expected availability in 2019.

THIS DECEMBER 7-9, THE ANNUAL DUBAI-BASED STREET CULTURE FAIR RETURNS FOR ITS 6TH EDITION at DUBAI DESIGN DISTRICT (d3)

Tuesday 24 October, 2017, Sole DXB in partnership with d3, announces its full program for 2017, with the support of Cadillac, Coca Cola and in association with Dubai Tourism. The three-day global street culture festival returns this December 7th, 8th and 9th at d3, Dubai, revealing a heavyweight billing that brings together some of the world’s finest names from across art, food, music, sports and style. Having celebrated American Hip Hop heritage in 2015, and its British street-evolved counterpart in 2016, Sole DXB returns in 2017 to spotlight the legacy and influence of Japanese contemporary design.

Reflecting the booming appetite for alternative culture that Sole DXB has steadily cultivated since its inception in 2010. Sole DXB is again delighted to call Dubai Design District (d3) home to the region’s only street and urban culture festival. Mirroring what d3 has set out to achieve; to build a thriving creative neighbourhood for a diverse community that share common interests.

The confirmed music billing for 2017 welcomes hip-hop greats of both present and future. Artists to perform most notably include award-winning musician Kano, G.O.O.D Music President and rapper Pusha T, American silk-soul rapper Goldlink, German rapper Serious Klein, and Manchester urban jazz singer IAMDDB, hailed as one of the breakout stars of 2017 and already amassing streams in excess of 1 million hits per track. And it wouldn’t be Sole DXB without some intimate after-parties, with the OGs DJ Stretch Armstrong, DJ Shortkut, streetwear icons PATTA Soundsystem, and DJs Tom Crane, Dave Lubin, and Andy Baxter providing the flavours this year.

Opening night Thursday 7th December welcomes all to a now-ritual free-to-public annual film screening. This year, with the international premiere of Word is Bond is the turn of Mass Appeal and their recently produced hip-hop documentary, to take centre stage. Directed by Mass Appeal’s Chief Creative Officer, Sacha Jenkins, the documentary examines the

transformative power of lyrics in the world of Hip Hop. With an open door policy, it’s the first in a long line of socially driven moves from Sole DXB aimed at providing legitimate, culturally-weighted entertainment, stimulating grass roots artistry.

On Friday 8th December, Sole DXB opens in its entirety, with a series of cultural talks unveiled, including intimate ‘no holds barred’ conversations with some of the biggest names in design, fashion and music. These include: headlining musician Pusha T; Fragment Design founder and much heralded Godfather of Streetwear Hiroshi Fujiwara; designer and style icon Jeff Staple of Staple Design; Peter Bittenbender, CEO of New York-based media company/record label Mass Appeal (of which hip hop legend Nas is a partner); founder of global alternative culture platform Highsnobiety, David Fischer makes a guest appearance; jewelry designer and famously the only woman to own a store front on notorious LA shopping destination Fairfax Avenue, Melody Ehsani; and Peter Jansson and Mubi Ali – founder and head buyer respectively of Sweden-born cult classic (and previous Online Retailer of the Year winner) sneaker retailer Sneakersnstuff.

From conversation to conversion, a host of highly sought after brands will show and retail never-before-seen wares across the weekend, each individually housed in bespoke retail units taking design cues from the finesse of Tokyo architecture. In parallel with some of the world’s biggest lifestyle brands on display including Asics, Nike, PUMA, Reebok. Japanese designers will provide some of the most highly-sought-after and hard-to-find product over the weekend, from brands including Neighborhood, Visvim, Wacko Maria, Undercover, Non-Native, and White Mountaineering. A sign of the growing importance of streetwear in the fashion sector, Sole DXB also enter into the world of luxury for the very first time – partnering with two standout luxury brands to preview their forward collections and create unique retail experiences for guests; the brands, both luxe icons: Dior Homme and Kenzo.

It was in 2010 that Sole DXB was founded, back then in a small Dubai community arts centre. What began as a small gathering of like-minded sneaker and hip-hop lovers coming together to swap kicks and share tracks, has rapidly grown into a 17,000 person, 3-day annual event with the support of the world’s leading cultural figures. A testament to the rise of the event and the region, Sole DXB is now a mainstay in the global events calendar and, when it comes to pushing cultural boundaries, is proving itself again as the one to watch.
