CA DMV + CRYPTO

The American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) congratulates Tezos and Oxhead Alpha on their recent partnership with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and their continued commitment to improving the lives of people through technology.

Kevin Mehrabi, an advisor of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) and founder of StableTech (Tezos Stable Technologies), played a role in this major milestone.

The California DMV, long-stuck in the past with paper-based technology, will now be able to take advantage of the benefits of blockchain technology thanks to this partnership. Digitizing car titles for California drivers will improve the efficiency and security of title transfers, while also streamlining the process.

Kevin Mehrabi, who serves on the advisory board of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) and launched critical DeFi infrastructure for the growing Tezos DeFi ecosystem, said, “With this one act, the California DMV is defying the stereotype of bureaucratic inertia—the idea that government agencies are resistant to innovation. Blockchain technologies—and those based on Tezos blockchain, in particular—enable a transformative level of security and efficiency that traditional technologies fundamentally cannot, let alone at a tiny fraction of the operational cost. This will be a great demonstration of blockchain-based innovation for other US government agencies at state, local, and federal levels.”

Todd White, Founder of the American Blockchain PAC, said, “A significant blockchain use case private-public blockchain partnership has been achieved in the State of California.” 

Adelle Nazarian, CEO Of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) said, “This partnership between Tezos, Oxhead Alpha, and the California DMV is a victory for the blockchain industry and a step towards mass adoption. Tezos’ ability to bring cutting-edge solutions to traditional industries is impressive and I am proud to be associated with such an innovative and forward-thinking company through the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC).”

Today’s repackage release features a total of 15 tracks including 12 tracks from the 4th album along with 3 new tracks “Ay-Yo”, “DJ”, and “Skyscraper (摩天樓[우남W3] ; 마천루)”. Title track “Ay-Yo” is a hip-hop dance track with a core message of moving forward with intention in the midst of uncertainty, as the band continues to establish the values they carry with them. Additionally, “DJ” is a funky up-tempo track that details how the members become DJs themselves, gifting special moments with their own-selected playlists. “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)” is a powerful hip-hop track detailing ambition, overcoming limits and climbing to the top. With the continued participation of famous writers from the 4th album “질주 (2 Baddies)” such as KENZIE, Dem Jointz, Andreas Öberg, and producer Simon Petré, the album is further enhanced by the additional rapping talent of members TAEYONG and MARK on “DJ” and “Skyscraper (摩天樓; 마천루)”.

The repackage arrives four months following the original release of “질주 (2 Baddies)” this past September. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, making the group only the second K-Pop artist in history to land three albums in the Top 5. The album was praised for its versatility, with Billboard writing, “The album’s sound, meanwhile, shows off the idols’ eclectic versatility as they run through R&B, pop, electronic dance and hip-hop-leaning sounds,” and NYLON claiming, “They’re charismatic and confident, and they’re not afraid to get loud with it.”

NCT 127 recently completed an arena tour across U.S. and South America.

Bronx's Ice Spice new song release via 360 MAGAZINE.

ICE SPICE – LIKE..?

LISTEN HERE

Named after one of her signature catchphrases, Like..? is the best showcase yet for the 23-year-old artist’s defiant charm, packed with Instagram-caption worthy couplets written by Ice Spice and inventive instrumentals from Ice and her frequent collaborator and EP executive producer RIOTUSA.

Last year saw Ice Spice establish herself as one of the most notable names in the rap game. The New Year’s, 2000, baby came out of 2022 as TikTok’s #1 Emerging Artist of the Year, Vevo’s 2023 DSCVR Artist to Watch, Shazam’s Top 2023 Artist Prediction, Billboard’s Hip Hop Rookie of the month and rounded out 2022 as BET’s Amplified Artist of the month. Today, Ice Spice can boast over 168 million global streams, and she has received critical praise from The New York TimesPitchforkRolling StoneSpotifyThe FADERREVOLT, NPR, and more.

Home to her three breakout viral hits – “Munch (Feelin U),” “Bikini Bottom,” and the recent “In Ha Mood” – Like..? adds three new infectious bangers to the burgeoning Ice Spice canon. “Gangsta Boo with Lil Tjay” is a bass-boosted collaboration with fellow Bronx native Lil Tjay, transforming Diddy’s 2000 hit “I Need A Girl Pt. 2” into a drill love song. “Actin’ A Smoochie” embraces the Jersey club sound that defines the Bronx scene, creating a party anthem that explores another popular bit of NYC slang. The percolating “Princess Diana” combines a signature RIOT melody with some of Ice’s best bars, commenting on her it girl status: “Nowadays I be duckin’ them cameras/And they hot that I’m up on ’em banners/Callin’ my phone but they know I don’t answer/In the hood, I’m like Princess Diana.” 

Hi-Rez HERE

Like.? arrives hot on the heels of “In Ha Mood,” Ice’s third straight viral hit, which gained traction on social media over the holidays. The hard-hitting single generated over 142k+ video creations on TikTok and 3.5 million Spotify streams in its first few weeks of release. “In Ha Mood” and its trending status should be no surprise–Ice Spice emerged in 2022 and became the most effortlessly viral star in the rap game. In August, the artist shared “Munch (Feelin U),” the runaway hit that helped turn Ice Spice into one of the hottest risers in hip-hop. “Munch” earned universal critical acclaim, earning “Best Song of the Year” mentions in publications like The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling StoneBillboard, NPR, The Washington Post, and many, many others. Ice Spice followed up “Munch” with the viral single “Bikini Bottom,” which earned over 30 million global audio and video streams and more than 134k TikTok creations.

Ice Spice’s road to stardom accelerated with “Munch,” but she’s been buzzing in NYC for a long time. At age seven she was writing poetry and freestyling, and from there she first gained attention with “No Clarity,” a bite-sized banger that decries the lack of communication in a relationship, and the soul-sampling “Name Of Love,” which Ebro featured as his “discovery of the day” on Apple Music Radio. With more music on the way, the unbothered and effortlessly rising superstar has proved the Bronx born It Girl is here to stay.

Like..? EP tracklist:

  1. In Ha Mood
  2. Princess Diana
  3. Gangsta Boo with Lil Tjay
  4. Actin’ A Smoochie
  5. Bikini Bottom
  6. Munch (Feelin U)

The GOOD DESIGN® Awards recognize the top new products bestowed annually by The Chicago Athenaeum in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. Founded in Chicago in 1950, GOOD DESIGN® is the oldest and most respected program awarding design excellence worldwide. This year the museum received a record number of submissions from an international roster of top manufacturers and industrial, product and graphic design firms representing 55 nations.

“I’m thrilled with this recognition and want to thank this year’s panel of  judges along with the design community,” said Rottet, when referencing the recent win for the Walking Bench (top), a sculpted horizontal stone bench that received multiple awards and accolades this year.

The Walking Bench won the 2022 NYCxDESIGN Product Design Award for best residential seating and was a finalist in the A+Product Awards from Architizer. Highlighting angled legs and marble construction, the bench was originally designed as indoor/outdoor seating for the entry foyer at the Kips Bay Show House in Dallas.

The Rottet Collection along with the Walking Bench can be viewed by appointment only at the New York Showroom, 29 West 30th St., 6th Floor.  Contact: Sandra Sharma, Director, Rottet Collection, 866-400-4777.
