ASTON MERRYGOLD

‘GET STUPID’ VIDEO

Aston Merrygold has debuted the video for his track ‘Get Stupid,’ currently featured on the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 TV advert and recently the most #1 Shazamed advert in the UK, having just completed a sold out tour of the UK and Ireland, including a show at London’s KOKO venue.

The video, filmed at Aston’s dance studios BASE in Vauxhall, London, has been made in conjunction with mysnapp, a mobile app where fans can shop the fashion worn in the video, including exclusive clothing designed by Aston and only available through the app (mysnapp.co.uk).

The Samsung Galaxy S9, which was launched worldwide by Samsung on February 25th and heavily features ‘Get Stupid’, catapulted the pop track back into the charts globally, currently charting in 36 countries including Top 40 in the USA. This week ‘Get Stupid’ shot up to the coveted position of the #1 Most Shazamed Advert in the United Kingdom, topping global brands including H&M, Missguided and M&S.

Aston said “It’s amazing to see Get Stupid back in the charts as part of the Samsung S9 Galaxy campaign. The advert has given the song a whole new lease of life. I’ve always believed in this song so I couldn’t be happier it’s getting this recognition.”

The track, which was written with Karen Poole and Sonny J. Mason, is an electrifying score with celebratory horns, pulsating bass grooves and vibrant rhythms topped by Aston’s ultra-charismatic vocal delivery. It’s pure contemporary pop grounded within the finest traditions of sixties R&B, with the entire song created with live instrumentation, the record has an electrifying if not jaw dropping effect when Merrygold takes it to live performance.

‘Get Stupid’, initially released in July of 2015, took Aston from UK boyband sensation as part of JLS (10 million records sold worldwide), to platinum selling solo artist in international territories – he toured Australia off the back of ‘Get Stupid’ being one of the most played songs on radio, as well as winning Best New Song at the RTL Awards in Italy. The song also caught the attention of James Corden, who invited him to perform on The Late Late Show in the US, as well as performing at Shazam’s International Conference in Los Angeles.

Aston has spent the last three years touring, writing new music for himself and other artists including co-writes in the Asian market. ‘Bounce’ by TVXQ, co-written by Aston, is currently #1 in over 13 countries, and top 10 in the global chart. He’s also due to feature in his debut film role in ‘Boogie Man’ (directed by Andy Morahan), release details TBA. Additionally, he was invited to join Kygo on his summer tour, and the pair will continue to work together this coming summer.

In 2017 he performed to over 10 million people weekly on BBC1’s prime time Strictly Come Dancing. Aston is continuing this journey with past Strictly winners Harry Judd from McFly and Olympic champion Louis Smith on a two month UK tour which will see the three boys performing to music from the 60s, as part of the Rip It Up show. The London show will be at The Palladium on October 12th.

Influenced by the likes of the late Michael Jackson when he takes the stage, Aston has proven to be a dynamic performer, featuring as a judge on Got To Dance, as well as recently launching his new business venture BASE Dance Studios.

In early 2018 Aston also became a father for the first time, with him and his fiancé welcoming his son Grayson Jax Merrygold, with a wedding due for later this year.

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.

Belly × Mumble Rap

BELLY RELEASES NEW TAPE, MUMBLE RAP 

EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY BOI-1DA, DANNYBOYSTYLES & BELLY 

Multiplatinum-certified Academy® Award-nominated and GRAMMY® Award-winning Toronto rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer BELLY unveils his new tape, Mumble Rap, today. It’s available HERE via XO/Roc Nation/Republic Records.

 

The project represents an important statement for the artist. Executive produced by Boi-1da, BELLY, and Dannyboystyles, the 11-track collection which includes a guest feature from Pusha T harks back to the art of spitting, slyly name-checking modern “Mumble Rap” as it unseats the movement with classic charisma and rambunctious rhymes.

 

Watch the “Mumble Rap” video HERE and “Lullaby” video HERE.

 

Moreover, he goes deep with the subject matter. He shot the music video for “Immigration To The Trap” in dangerous immigrant-heavy neighborhoods of France, namely Bondy Nord and Sevran in the 93 District. As an immigrant from Palestine himself, BELLY wanted to speak candidly about the topic in provocative and powerful clip as he viscerally spits the chant, “Immigration To The Trap, generation to adapt.” He doesn’t hold anything back with his bars or the visuals. Between a soulful hook, “Lullaby” dives into his deep lyricism, while the video captures a pronounced rawness shot in the studio with Boi-1da. Arriving at a powerhouse climax, everything culminates with the heavenly delivery of “All Alone” where he poetically admits, “Four in the morning and you still calling. No matter how far I try to go, I keep on falling. Now it’s five in the morning and I’m still calling. No matter how far I try to go, I feel so lost here on this road. And I’m all alone.”

  

BELLY packs the punchiest flow and wildest wordplay north of the border. Carving out a devout underground following in addition to making a name for himself as a songwriter, he landed an RIAA Gold-certified smash with “Might Not” [feat. The Weeknd] from his 2015 project Up For Days. 2016’s Another Day In Paradise followed, boasting cameos from the likes of Travis Scott, Kehlani, B-Real, and Lil Wayne. Most recently, Inzombia placed hip-hop in a state of shock and awe with the hit “Frozen Water” [feat. Future]—which amassed over 11 million Spotify streams—as well as collaborations with heavy hitters such as Young Thug, Jadakiss, Ty Dolla $ign, and more. His influence extends beyond his own discography though. Not only did BELLY write “6-Inch” for Beyoncé, but he also co-wrote six tracks from The Weeknd’s chart-dominating triple-platinum 2015 epic, Beauty Behind The Madness, including “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”, receiving an Academy® Award nod for “Best Original Song” and notching the GRAMMY® Award for “Best R&B Performance.”
