Today, Bino Rideaux releases the official lyric video for his single “Brand New,” via Def Jam Recordings.
Bino raps a complex story alongside an upbeat track, establishing an instantly catchy hit. The artist reveals the tension between his love interest and his lifestyle, questioning how compatible they truly are.
He tests his partner’s loyalty and reveals some of his own vulnerability with lines like, “Would you still be there, if I never had my dough up? / If I would seek visitation, would you show up?” While the overall positive sound celebrates new love, the lyrics reveal the inherent challenges of Bino’s situation.
This new single offers a window into Bino’s world, where he came from, and where he’s going. And judging from the success Bino’s had to this point, he’s only going up from here.
“Bino Rideaux has proven to be a staple West Coast artist over the years”
“L.A. rapper Bino Rideaux has been putting in the work in the area for a while now, earning co-signs from a lot of biggies including the late Nipsey Hussle”
“Bino, as well as Nip, let their bars do the talking.”
About Bino Rideaux
Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Bino Rideaux remembers a time when his dream seemed impossible. “I wanted to prove everybody wrong when nobody believed.” At 27, the Los Angeles rapper is a case study in the hustle, grinding on his own and acquiring cosigns from some of the biggest names on his coast.
Born Brandon Rainey, hip-hop was always on his mind. “It’s something that’s always interested me. I love music. I’ve always been the ‘rap nigga’ in my area.” He briefly lived in South Central as a teenager and remembers that time marked by the lure of the streets as well as hip-hop.
He was influenced by emotive artists like Young Thug and Nas. By 2014, he had a makeshift studio at his grandmother’s house, and that’s when things began to crystalize. “That’s when I started taking shit serious. That’s when it became a thing like, ‘This is where I’m going to be.’”
In 2015, he released Life Is Like A Movie, the first project that received local attention. “That’s the first time I had a team putting a project together. The response to it wasn’t as strong but it made me feel like, something can be done here.”
He signed to Out The Blue Records, an independent label he founded with friends. “It was organic,” he says. “I was doing what I love with my loved ones involved and making everybody in my section proud. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
The track “100 Days 100 Nights” would be his breakout. “I lost a homie, KP. We made that track because a lot was going in the city. It was basically my hood versus the enemy’s hood.” The track resonated with one fan in particular: Nipsey Hussle.
Bino and Nipsey linked in the studio for “The Field” and “Clarity” in 2016 and 2017, respectively. “We kept rocking ever since.” Bino says that the relationship indelibly changed him. “That’s one of the most major parts that made me “me” today. I feel a lot different than I was prior to meeting bro.” He cites Nipsey’s business acumen and artistic inspiration, in particular. “He laid out the blueprint for me.” With that blueprint in hand, Bino Rideaux is ready to continue what he started. He signed with Def Jam Records in January 2020 and is excited to be a part of its legacy. “I want to be that LA dude that’s on Def Jam. A crazy success story.” He released “Pride 2 the Side,” a tribute to Nipsey, earlier this year and plans to drop two more projects.
He’s not sure how it’ll play out with the uncertainty of the times. He wants to solidify his name as well as build with Out The Blue. “As a label, we want to be a strong staple and almost landmark in the music industry. A household name with no smut and great business.” In that vein, he underscores his relentless approach and visceral sound. “My music is based on feelings. I want you to feel something. That’s really why I do this shit.”
Grammy award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd and Atlantic pop singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson have announced today’s release of “Funny,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE an official companion video (directed by Jack Karaszweski) is streaming now via YouTube HERE. “Funny” marks the first new music from Zedd this year and the latest in a stunning series of new releases from Thompson.
“When I first heard Jasmine’s voice on this song, I was blown away by it and knew I wanted to work with her on ‘Funny,'” says Zedd. “There’s so much emotion and energy in this song and Jasmine’s voice captures it perfectly.”
“After a relationship people always seem to come back and want to try again and pay you more attention and say they miss you. I had been through a relationship that wasn’t working and as soon as we ended it, they wanted to spend more time with me,” says Jasmine Thompson of “Funny.” “That’s what this song is about, and collaborating with Zedd was an amazing experience – his approach was unique, gave the song an incredible energy, and really brought it to life.”
Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd made his debut with “Clarity” after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Foxes on “Clarity” (which earned Zedd a 2014 Grammy “Best Dance Recording”), Hayley Williams on RIAA platinum-certified hit, “Stay The Night” (which racked up more than 400 million streams), and Selena Gomez on the platinum-certified track, “I Want You To Know,” which spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Dance/Electronic Songs” chart. He’s also collaborated with Alessia Cara on their hit single “Stay” which held the #1 spot at Top 40 radio for six consecutive weeks and earned Zedd his second Grammy Award nomination, and with Maren Morris and Grey on the monster hit “The Middle,” which earned Zedd is second #1 at Top 40 radio. Digitally, the song has amassed over 1 billion streams and earned Zedd three Grammy nominations including “Record Of The Year,” “Song Of The Year,” and “Best Pop Duo or Group Performance.”
Jasmine Thompson grew up in central London where her family of four lived in a modest two bedroom flat. After her parents divorced, Jasmine saw her mother working as many as four jobs at a time but always prioritizing her kids’ creative development, even buying a second-hand green screen for Jasmine to record videos of herself singing, that unsurprisingly ended up on YouTube where she now boasts over 630 million YouTube views and more than 3.5 million subscribers. Jasmine’s booming YouTube presence and captivating vocals lead to a major label deal with Atlantic Records at the age of just 13. Now 19, the singer-songwriter has enjoyed a musical growth that’s taken her from viral covers to her own ADORE, WONDERLAND and COLOUR EPs while also establishing a global fan following with featured appearances on internationally successful recordings, collectively earning more than 3 billion global streams. She has made chart-topping appearances on a pair of global blockbuster hit singles, including her collaboration with German DJ/producer Robin Schulz on “Sun Goes Down (Feat. Jasmine Thompson)” that’s earned 1 billion worldwide streams along with a slew of international gold and platinum certifications and over 404 million views on YouTube. German DJ Felix Jaehn’s “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” remix was another undeniable smash, earning gold and platinum certifications in a range of countries and drawing over 1 billion global streams and over 378 million individual views on YouTube.

Brain hacking is a growing trend around the world and something that people of all ages are looking into. It involves attempting to improve one or more functions of the brain, such as mood, reasoning, clarity, focus or energy and can be done in a variety of ways. Some people see brain hacking as a negative; however, there’s actually nothing unsafe or bad about the practice. Plus, when you think about it, even puzzle games like Sudoku can be seen as a form of brain hacking as they stimulate the mind and are proven to provide long lasting benefits.
While puzzles are one way of improving the brain, science has actually provided us with many more options. In fact, optimizing your gray matter can be achieved through the use of supplements. Often called cognitive enhancers or smart drugs, these supplements are safe and work a lot quicker than playing games like Sudoku. To help you understand how they work, we have described the most popular below.
Nootropics is a Greek word that means ‘mind altering’ or ‘mind bending’, however it’s not as scary as it sounds. This commonly used type of supplement has been proven to improve the brain’s neural functions and can help to take your mind to a whole new level. As one example, take a look at the nootropic uridine monophosphate which is described on the VitaMonk blog. This nootropic can help with everything from improving mental clarity and cognition to memory loss and reaction times. There are plenty of other options available too, each with its own benefits.
When choosing a nootropic, it’s important to consider what mind-altering benefits you want to receive. Each has a different potency and a different effect on the brain, although they are in no way dangerous. Pick one that aligns with your brain hacking goals and don’t be afraid to switch it if it doesn’t work as intended. You can also stack nootropics to find the perfect balance for you.
As briefly mentioned above, stacking is a good option for those who want to take brain hacking to the next level. The idea has been around for a while in the weight training industry and basically involves using a variety of different supplements to achieve the desired benefit. The same is true of nootropic supplements; users can take supplements that are complementary to each other to achieve the greatest gain.
It’s recommended that you don’t start out with stacking. Instead, use one nootropic and see how it benefits you and where it is lacking. When you feel more comfortable, you can add extra supplements to your stack to suit your needs. It’s also possible to buy nootropics boxes which provide a mix of supplements in one pill.
Stimulants are something that most of us have heard of, thanks to caffeine, but they’re also a popular supplement in the world of brain hacking as well. While they aren’t intended to boost your mood or memory loss, they can help to keep you awake, improve your mental clarity, and get rid of brain fog.
Stimulants are not a type of nootropic that should be used every day, especially if they are being used instead of sleep, however they can be beneficial when you need to promote wakefulness and alertness on occasion. Adrafinil and modafinil are the two most popular nootropics in the stimulant category.
With so many different options available, brain hacking doesn’t have to be hard. It also doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process. Best of all, it’s completely safe.
Adding to the excitement for his upcoming mix-tape, Icewear Vezzo celebrates this moment with a music video for European–check it out here!

~ Refreshing New Spa Menu Highlights Local Ingredients, Beauty Partners and Mayan-Inspired Treatments in Lush Natural Setting ~
Naum Wellness & Spa, the 10,000-square foot verdant wellness hideaway at Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, has just launched a new spa menu. The new menu, which incorporates many local and natural ingredients, brings in traditional Mayan rituals and offers a variety of spa services promoting health, beauty and inner harmony. The spa’s namesake, Naum, is the Mayan God of consciousness and mind. The Mayan-influenced spa, whose décor follows the same theme as the menu, is simply designed to blend into its lush jungle surroundings, immersing guests into the culture and nature of the region. The six open and airy treatment suites have oversized windows with beautiful decks and striking green views that bring guests a sense of peaceful relaxation.
The new spa menu, which has been carefully curated by Spa Manager Daniel Escalante, is inspired by native Mayan traditions known as “rituals”, which are reflective of the mind, body and spirit. The new treatment Rituals on the menu include the Ritual Sac Ki, which frees the body of harmful toxins and reveals fresher and brighter skin with a dry exfoliation using “Sac Ki”, the Mayan word for white henequen considered the green gold for the Mayan culture. This is followed by an invigorating massage with the anti-inflammatory power of the sacred copal oil. The second Ritual is the Ritual de Ixi’im y Chia, which offers the antioxidant power of the exotic Blue Corn and the purifying power of “Chia”, the Mayan word for “Strength”. The treatment also includes a nourishing massage with shea butter enriched with the regenerative benefits of calendula extract. Couples can reconnect with each other and renew their love through one of the Lovers Retreat rituals including the Eternal Romance Ritual which combines Swedish massage and hot stones with the exquisite aphrodisiac synergy of clove essential oil and wild roses. Rituals range from 90 to 120 minutes and are priced between $349 for a single treatment to $539 for the couple’s treatments.
The Naum Rituals were created to pay homage to oneself and the Mayan Gods, and to find harmony based on the guest’s selected area of wellness intention – whether that be Clarity (Tsoolik), Rest (He’lel), Strength (Muuk’) or Connection (Molcintah). Each Ritual is a three-part experience, alluding to the balancing nature of the number three with a beginning, middle and end. The Rituals begins with a Mayan Time of Reflection, followed by the treatment experience itself, and concludes with a Mayan Celebration to help guests balance and reconnect with themselves and the universe.
Apart from the traditional Rituals, spa guests can also choose from a selection of facials, massages and body treatments, many of which feature local and natural ingredients. Valuing the importance of the science of beauty care, Andaz Mayakoba created specific treatments in partnership with innovative beauty brands such as Naturopathica and Barbor, renowned for their high-quality formulas that contain natural plant extracts mixed with technology to combat a variety of skin problems. Highlights from the new menu include the following:
Naum Signature Treatment, 90 minutes, $316
This unique four-hand sensory treatment combines Volcanic Stones, Swedish Rhythmic techniques and a custom synergy of essential oils to stimulate the vital energy of the body, and brings all muscles and senses to maximum relaxation reaching the connection between mind, body and spirit.
Mayan Stone Massage, 60/90 minutes, $167/$237
This Mayan-influenced massage induces the flow of vital energy through the stimulation of each of the body’s centers, harmonizing mind, body and spirit, in addition to improving the circulatory system and releasing toxins from the skin.
Vitamin C Facial by Barbor, 60 minutes, $192
The Vitamin C Facial by Barbor is a true cosmetic jewel that contains a fresh texture and revitalizing citrus aroma for all skin types, including the most damaged. With an active concentrate of 20% Vitamin C, the treatment increases the production of collagen and the luminosity of the skin for a smoother complexion and firm and bright skin tone, protecting the skin from the sun.
Gentleman’s Facial by Barbor, 60 minutes, $192
The Gentleman’s Facial is a barber style facial designed for the demanding male skin, which is subject to stress. Taurec, the powerful exclusive active ingredient of the series BARBOR MEN, soothes the skin and enhances its energy and vitality.
Anti-Aging Facial by Naturopathica, 90 minutes, $264
In partnership with Naturopathica, the anti-aging facial is a reparative, regenerating and corrective treatment that combats the signs of aging. Active ingredients Argan Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl synthe’6 and a Tri-Retional blend work together to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin tone and firmness.
Xoco – Tequila Body Wrap, 60 minutes, $187
This locally inspired treatment revitalizes the skin and combats stress with powerful Mexican antioxidants. Chocolate and tequila, in addition to being delicious delicacies, have the ability to preserve beauty and youth while relaxing the mind and senses on a path to emotional well-being.
Jade Oro y Plata Body Wrap, 60 minutes, $187

Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd has released “Get Low,” his new single with Liam Payne on Interscope. “Get Low” marks a more urban sound for Zedd that he also described as one of his catchiest songs and recently told BuzzFeed, “just had to live in the summer.” Listen to the single here:http://zedd.me/GetLow_LyricVideo
Zedd and Liam met last year as Liam was beginning to plan his solo career. Zedd had been working on “Get Low” at that time and thought Liam would be perfect for it. Zedd and Liam then began working on the song together and as Zedd recalls, “Liam’s voice gave the song a lot of soul and really influenced the song a lot.”
“Get Low” is Zedd’s second single this year, following his hit single “Stay” with Alessia Cara. “Stay” is currently #1 at Top 40 Radio for the 6th consecutive week in the US and reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. Zedd will return to Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series on July 23rd where he will be joined by Alessia and additional surprise guests.
This fall, Zedd will kick off his Echo Tour in North America starting on September 29 in Vancouver, Canada, which he announced last month. Several shows, including San Francisco and Boston have sold out already, with a second show added in San Francisco as well as a stop in Washington, DC. Tickets are available here:http://www.zedd.net/echo
