NUE Drops Hypnotic Video for “Nightfall”

Toronto artist NUE, premiered his much anticipated music video for his latest single, Nightfall via Hypebeast. The song has already cultivated over 1 million total streams since its audio release on Noisey along with the uptempo “Deadman.” “Nightfall” is a striking visual with animated narcotics, skulls, and animé-inspired caricatures (that he drew himself).

The anime illustrator explained the video to Hypebeast stating, “Soon as the sun goes down that’s when my day starts and that’s pretty much what the song is. N****s pretty much live in the darkness, me and boys that’s just the lifestyle. I got a project I’m working on right now that I’m super excited about. I went to a different planet to make that shit, it’s all these new sounds the world’s never heard before, so be sure to watch out for that.”

The video’s release follows Nue’s impressive Iroquois mixtape that went on to capture the attention of outlets such as; Complex, The Fader, Pigeons and Planes, PAPER Magazine, Rap Radar, and more. The Toronto native is slowly making waves in the American music market as he performed at the first ever Canadian music stage at this past SXSW.

NUE vulnerably shows his paranoia and dealings with women. Through all the nuanced complexities that NUE experiences, the video ends with a calmness taking over him — as blood drapes all over his body, symbolizing escaping his troubles and coming to terms with his issues.

Take a look at “Nightfall” below and look out for more music coming from NUE this June.

The Leeu Collection invest in Alajmo S.P.A

Luxury hotel group Leeu Collection (www.leeucollection.com) has taken a 10% stake in Alajmo S.P.A (www.alajmo.it), the Italian family business established by brothers Massimiliano (Max) Alajmo, the world’s youngest three-star Michelin chef, and Raffaele (Raf), the company’s Chief Executive and maître des lieux.

The purchase mirrors previous investments made by Analjit (BAS) Singh, the owner of Leeu Collection, all of which have a family focus; companies such as South African Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines and Indian chef Ritu Dalmia’s Riga Foods and Mamagoto.

Alajmo S.p.A. operates four fine-dining restaurants and six café-bistros, including Le Calandre and La Montecchia restaurants in Padua, Caffè Stern in Paris and Grancaffè & Ristorante Quadri in St. Mark’s Square, Venice, as well as a line of food products and a special events business, all overseen by Max from Le Calandre, his vibrant culinary laboratory, which has held three Michelin stars since 2003.

Leeu Collection currently has three properties (Leeu Estates, Leeu House and Le Quartier Français) in Franschhoek, South Africa, with Linthwaite House in the Lake District due to re-open following a year-long refurbishment in June 2018. Two further hotels are under construction in London and Florence.

Said Raf Alajmo, CEO of Alajmo S.p.A., “Having, last year, bought back the shares once owned by Italian investment firm Palladio Finanziaria, my brother and I decided to open our doors to a foreign shareholder. A chance meeting with BAS in Milan has led to him purchasing a share of Alajmo S.p.A., in what we sincerely hope will be the first step towards a strong alliance between our two companies.”

In response, Analjit Singh said, “I am always attracted to invest in family businesses that share a similar vision to mine and, because there are a lot of synergies between Leeu and Alajmo, I feel sure that the results of this partnership will be seen for years to come.”

Rapping upside down, Duckwrth weaves a compelling tale over a sonic backdrop brought to life by bright visuals intercut with an unflinchingly intense chase scene. Conceived as a story by DUCKWRTH and Mettenarrative, the cinematic clip lives up to his reputation as the game’s most intriguing new outlier.

Highsnobiety wrote, “DUCKWRTH’s an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape was among our favorite under the radar hip-hop releases of last year, a collection of sharply-honed songs that fully displayed why the LA-based rapper has so rapidly built a devoted a fanbase.”

“Boy” stands out as the latest single to be released from his applauded 2018 project an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape—available now.

Paper recently praised him writing, “The rapper, for lack of a better descriptor expertly blends hip hop, funk and rock to create a truly eccentric and undisputedly unique sound (think Outkast meets N.E.R.D. meets something entirely out of this world.

Since the release of his sophomore project, an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape, in November, “Duckwrth hit the ground running.” (XXL) He toured North America alongside Rich Brian, performing more than 30 shows in less than two months. He collaborated with Urban Outfitters for an exclusive in-store release of his ‘BOY’ t-shirts and XTRA UUGLY cassette tapes, as well as connected with the brand for a special live performance at Space 1520 in Hollywood. He dominated headlines at SXSW in Austin, where he was named one of the festival’s best new artists by Paste Magazine and blessed the lineups of 10 showcases including Pandora, VEVO, Tumblr and Clash Magazine. While Duckwrth has been on the road, his music has continued to grow with tracks like “I’m Dead” ft. Sabrina Claudio and “Rare Panther + Beach House” combining for over 3M streams on Spotfiy. His Michael Jackson-inspired music video for “MICHUUL.” has racked up nearly 500K views and the track was featured on HULU’s Mary Kills People and in EA Games’ Need For Speed.

KAILEE MORGUE DEBUTS NEW SINGLE

Kailee Morgue debuts her new single, “F**k U”—listen and share here. “F**k U” was produced by notable producer Dylan Brady (The Neighbourhood, Jesse Rutherford, Goody Grace, Night Lovell, Nessly).

Morgue is set to perform her first-ever headlining show in New York at Baby’s All Right on May 17th—tickets are available now here.

“F**k U” follows Morgue’s breakout track, “Medusa,” which catapulted her into an overnight success last year after she posted a live performance of the song on Twitter. “Medusa” became the title track from her debut EP, which was also released last fall and features her hit single, “Discovery.”

Tattooed, green haired and anime-obsessed 19-year-old Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based gothic pop siren, Kailee Morgue, casts a sonic spell with her music. A self-described “introvert” and the second oldest of six kids, she found solace in the sounds of fellow sonic sorceresses, such as Stevie Nicks and Gwen Stefani, as well as bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and more. By the age of ten, she picked up her first guitar, began quietly penning music and eventually started posting tracks on Soundcloud.

Between a gig at Jack In The Box in 2016, an 18-year-old Morgue found the beat for her breakout track, “Medusa,” on YouTube and cooked up the single. She first teased the track with a brief Twitter video, and it ignited a viral reaction garnering 100,000 “likes” overnight. Over an airy, minimalistic soundscape, Morgue creates a hypnotic and heartfelt melody with haunting and powerful lyrics. “Medusa” peaked at #1 on Hype Machine, was hailed as “Best Track of the Week” by The New York Times, MTV, The Line of Best Fit and Coup de Main and its video premiered on The FADER. As “Medusa” became an underground phenomenon, Morgue inked a deal with Republic Records in the summer of 2017. Further music is set for release this spring.
