JXN UNVEILS MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “GOING OFF” (FEAT. A$AP TWELVYY)

Australian artist JXN has released an official music video for his brand new single “Going Off” (feat. A$AP Twelvyy). The clip, which sees JXN and A$AP Twelvyy derail their own video shoot, was directed by Macario De Souza of Hype Republic. Rap-Up premiered the video earlier today. Watch it now HERE
 
“Man, it was just a party,” shares JXN. “The concept we came up with Hype Republic was dope and we wanted it to seem fun whilst also conveying a kinda deep message in the song. I really wanted it to not be taken too seriously, and with Twelvyy being such a legend, it was just a fun and easy shoot. The video makes you happy!”

A$AP Twelvyy adds,  “Sequel to this video to air on Netflix next year. Stay tuned. LOL.”
 
“Going Off” (feat. A$AP Twelvyy) is available to stream and download now HERE. After making an impressive debut last year with the launch of his first single “Solitude“, JXN followed up with the release of “Red Lights“, a collaboration with New York rapper, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie in March of this year. JXN’s early singles have already amassed over five million worldwide streams.
 
It’s a special kind of artist that has a handle on their own sound so early in their career, but JXN is a rare breed—a songwriter that truly creates, instead of emulating or imitating.
 
This August, JXN will make his live debut supporting ALLDAY, Mallrat and E^ST at venues across Australia.
 
JXN TOUR DATES
August 17, 2019 – Perth, Australia – Metro City
August 23, 2019 – Brisbane, Australia – Fortitude Music Hall

Lenny Kravitz Releases Video for “Low”

Lenny Kravitz releases the video for his new single Low, which comes off of his upcoming album, Raise Vibration. Click HERE to view. Raise Vibration is set to release on September 7th, 2018 and available for pre-order now, click HERE.

Directed by acclaimed photographer and music video director Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the powerful clip uniquely presents Kravitz’s new single in a compelling singular setting.

Jean Baptiste has been a part of my family since the beginning of my career. He has an acute ear for hearing the essence of a song and always finds a unique way to present it visually. When he heard Low for the first time he focused on the beat and kept listening to it over and over. The result was a black room, black drum set, and black clothing. It was all about the groove and the space. It turned into an interesting way to present a song, that has so much production, and portray the conversation taking place in the song, says Kravitz.

Mondino adds, I didn’t want to do music videos anymore, but then Lenny played me LOW – I fell in love with the song, the beat, and Lenny’s voice. I know that Lenny is a great drummer so when I told him lets do a real MUSIC video: just you performing on the drums, no set, no tricks, just a girl on the drums too, he said lets do it! And we did it; strong, simple, pure beat, with sexy sweat and soul. Lenny and Jas did a brilliant performance and nailed it!!! This song is a classic!!!!

On his eleventh full-length album, Raise Vibration, Lenny Kravitz elevates the union of rock & roll, funk, blues, and soul once again. Receptive to youthful inspiration, but enlightened by three decades of wisdom, it represents a powerful creative rebirth and a bold, bright, and brilliant body of work befitting of his legacy and boundless spirit.

STREAM LOW

STREAM RAISE VIBRATION

In conjunction with the release of Raise Vibration, Kravitz is gearing up to kick off the third leg of his 2018 world tour in Atlanta, Georgia on September 21st. Stay tuned for dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Cleanup of Contaminated Soil and Sediment

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that cleanup work will begin this summer to address soil and sediment contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at the Dewey Loeffel Landfill Superfund site in the town of Nassau, N.Y. The General Electric Company (GE) will remove contaminated soil and sediment, replace it with clean backfill, restore the stream channel, and re-plant trees and shrubs. The work will begin this summer and will be completed this fall.

“Superfund is at the very core of EPA’s mission and this important cleanup work will address one potential source of contamination at the Dewey Loeffel site,” said EPA Regional Administrator Pete Lopez. “EPA is working closely with the community and is expanding its efforts to involve stakeholders as we advance this cleanup forward working closely with our state and local government partners.”

EPA will hold a public information session on July 17 in Nassau to provide an overview of the recently completed field investigation activities and the upcoming cleanup. EPA will also discuss the opportunity for the formation of a community advisory group (CAG) for the site. A CAG is made up of members of the community and is designed to serve as the focal point for the exchange of information among the local community and EPA, the state regulatory agency, and other pertinent federal agencies involved in cleanup of the Superfund site.

A public information session will begin at 6:00 p.m., with a formal presentation beginning at 7:00 p.m. Members of the project team will be available to answer questions about current and planned project activities.

Public Information Session:

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Open House: 6 – 7 p.m., Presentation: 7 p.m.

St. Mary’s Church

Parish Hall (behind the church)

26 Church Street, Nassau, N.Y.

Background:

The stream to be addressed, technically known as Tributary T11A, is a 1,900-foot stream which flows into the Valatie Kill. The sediment and adjacent shoreline soil of Tributary T11A is contaminated with elevated levels of PCBs, which serve as a potential ongoing source of contamination to downstream areas, such as Nassau Lake. In September 2017, the EPA, working with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), reached an agreement with GE to conduct the T11A cleanup.

Between 1952 and 1968, an estimated 46,000 tons of industrial waste material generated by several Capital District companies was sent to the Dewey Loeffel Landfill site. The waste included industrial solvents, waste oil, PCBs, scrap materials, sludge and solids. From 1980 until the site was added to the federal Superfund list in 2011, numerous investigations and cleanup actions were performed at the site by GE and the NYSDEC. The cleanup work in Tributary T11A is an immediate action that is being taken to address contaminated soil and sediment in the tributary while the EPA’s long-term comprehensive study of the site continues.
