Pirelli Design Launches Audio Speaker

July 24, 2018 – Pirelli has joined forces with IXOOST, an Italian firm from Modena that specializes in high-end car audio, to create a new sound experience inspired by motorsport. The result is an exclusive hi-fi system that includes a cutting-edge Bluetooth™ speaker within a replica Wind Tunnel Tire: made by Pirelli for Formula 1™ Teams to conduct aerodynamic testing.

The wind tunnel is a vital tool for Formula 1™ Teams to study every aspect of air flow, in their unending search for optimal performance – where the tires play a vital role as well.

And from the scale-model F1™ Wind Tunnel tire, PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound by IXOOST was born. This is a mini tire that sets new standards of design and technology, traveling its own road when it comes to music.

The acoustic system includes a powerful amplifier with a 100-watt digital signal processor and is equipped with a 100-millimeter midwoofer as well as a 25-millimeter silk tweeter.  The whole system is made entirely in Italy by IXOOST, featuring hand-crafted unique touches and attention to detail.

With the most advanced 4.0 Bluetooth™ APTX technology, PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound can connect wirelessly to smartphones and other compatible devices, enhancing the audio signal in wireless mode and ensuring the best possible playback.

PIRELLI P ZERO™ Sound is available in nine different colors that reflect those used to distinguish the different racing compounds. Thanks to its appealing shape and extremely compact dimensions (330 millimeters diameter and maximum depth of 200 millimeters), this inspiring design piece will fit in anywhere, lending a unique and original touch to its surroundings.

The new speaker was previewed at the FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAND PRIX DE FRANCE 2018. PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound will be seen in the F1 Pirelli Hot Laps garage during other Grand Prixs this year.

‘That Feeling When’

Critically acclaimed Norwegian pop art-songstress Dagny is back with her brand new single “That Feeling When” today.

Get it HERE via Republic Records and check out the video HERE!

Underscored by buzzing electronics and dancefloor-ready energy, the track slips from hypnotic verses into a seismic refrain that’s impossible to shake. In addition, the official video for “That Feeling When” is Dagny’s most personal video to date as it was shot in Dagny’s hometown of Troms and the live performance footage was taken from a special performance in Oslo. The video premiered with Billboard.com who called it “beautiful & breathtaking.” Check out the premiere here.

On the new song Dagny said That Feeling When’ is my first single in 2018. The song shows another side of me as an artist, with a more melancholic, epic and atmospheric sound. It was written on an early autumn day in the studio, on my favorite instruments, the Omni chord. The inspiration for the song came from the hashtag #ThatFeelingWhen, and was written from my personal histories of not only falling in love, but also sorrow. It will be the first of two singles that will be released before the summer, and I hope that ´That Feeling When´ can create a different feeling for the listeners than my previous songs.”

In tandem with the song’s release, she hit the road on a short sold out North American tour. It kicked off April 22 in Toronto, Ontario at Adelaide Hall and rolls through select major markets before closing out May 4 at Popscene in San Francisco, CA.

Check out the full itinerary below!

With a singular sound, style, and spirit, Dagny is quietly ascending to the forefront of pop just under the radar. She recently guested on Seeb’s new track “Drink About” which has gone viral with nearly 14 million streams worldwide and hit Top 5 on Spotify charts in Scandinavia. Check out “Drink About” here!

2017 saw Dagny star in a high-profile Target campaign covering Andrea True’s 70’s Classic “More More, More” in addition to supporting LANY on tour in between her own tour dates. Last year, VEVO also touted her among its “Ones to Watch” as the single “Wearing Nothing” surpassed over 13 million Spotify streams.

Post a high-profile Beats 1 premiere by tastemaker Zane Lowe, 2016’s “Backbeat” transformed into a veritable smash, racking up a staggering nearly 33 million Spotify streams as Apple, Spotify, and Tidal pegged her as an “Artist To Watch” and Interview Magazine, NME, Nylon, Forbes, and more lauded her. She teamed up with BØRNS for “Fool’s Good,” which hit nearly 10 million streams and highlighted her Ultraviolet EP [Republic Records].

SMOKER’S CLUB FESTIVAL

The Smoker’s Club Festival experience is more of a paradise than a membership. Tailored entirely for the Californian smoker culture, everything from the lineup to the food proves that. With some legendary performances from headliners such as Wiz Khalifa and Kid Cudi, this event is impossible to pass up even for the average concert goer. The diverse arrangement of artists shows that these people know their crowd and every type of sound they love. There’s something for everyone with artists like Mac Miller, Lil Skies, and Dom Kennedy. Based in the hip-hop heavy area of Long Beach every artist that comes through shows love to the OG’s such as Snoop Dogg and the new comers like Vince Staples. Even if you don’t take part in the smoking activities some artists will even share from their supply as well. As someone that went alone I found the crowd and it’s people to be extremely friendly as far as festivals go. They all came for a good experience with some of their favorite artists playing classics and older mixtapes. The buzz for this festival grew the moment the line-up was announced and I’m sure many are impatiently waiting to see what they have up their sleeve for next time.

Michelle Cadreau x “Dominate”

Hip-hop lyricist Michelle Cadreau has developed a writing and rapping style with both subtlety and introspection to reflect her Native Canadian Indian and Polish ancestry. With four CDs to her credit, the Hamilton, Ontario melds hypnotic and soulful beats with her trademark urban poetry to create a performance style that is equally juxtaposed and complementary.

 

Given the native Indian name Blue Sky at birth by her grandmother (who was born on a reserve in northern Ontario), Cadreau has a tattoo on her back of blue zebra stripes in the shape of an eye with the inscription ‘Blue Sky.’ It is a physical reminder of her spiritual relationship to the earth and heavens and her family.

 

With musical influences that include Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg, Cadreau proudly emulates their style. Her ideas often come from a word or phrase that sparks inspiration and builds from there.  She also credits her parents for her love of music. Both played in bands most of their lives – her mother (a nurse by profession) is a vocalist and drummer and her father a vocalist and bass guitarist.

 

Like her mother, Cadreau also plays drums, having begun lessons at age five. She is also an accomplished painter and jewelry designer and has a degree in interior design. Her connection to the visual arts has been a foundation for her lyrics, which paint pictures of the joy and pain of life.

 

Among her releases is the breakout number, “Precipitation,” an articulate and explicit song that boldly details a rapper giving a slam performance for fans; “Like a Killer,” uses boxing to symbolize violence; and “Hip Hop Clerk” is a commentary on making it in the music industry.

 

Also included is “Ineffable,” a look at fan adulation; “Give Me The Prize,” a nod to intelligence and the rewards it can provide; and “Tallest Mountain,” a heartfelt look at making your way up the hip hop ladder. Her strongest response by far from both fans and critics online has been for the song “Ghetto Survival,” which equates creating powerful rap music with persistence and success.

 

Cadreau is using her lyrical deftness and distinct vantage point to create music that is true to her while paying homage to the complex backstory of rap and hip hop.
