Lute – Gold Mouf Chronicles

Following the special episode of Gold Mouf Chronicles dealing with his anxiety, Lute (Dreamville/Interscope Records) gives his best attempts at some alternative solutions to calm himself. He enters Dojo Body Mind in Charlotte, NC which is led by Brandon Powell to learn some meditation and breathing techniques that centers himself, especially under high pressure scenarios. Using what Powell refers to as forms of internal self-defense, Lute practices controlling his breathing carefully to a drum before easing himself into an ice bath. While intimidated at first, he overcomes the initial mental and physical shock and manages to stay in it for almost half a minute. Hopefully it leads to a better control over his anxiety in the near future. Watch the episode HERE.

The series features Lute’s latest single “GED (Gettin Every Dolla)” as its opening theme. The single, which debuted in early 2020 following a cryptic social media campaign, has become a fan favorite. The Neal Farmer-directed video, has now amassed over 1.8 MM views on YouTube. Following its release, Lute stunned fans with a halftime performance during the Hornets vs. Rockets showdown at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2019, the Charlotte rapper teamed up with label head J. Cole, and hip hop phenom DaBaby for the track, “Under the Sun,” which was featured on the Grammy-nominated RIAA certified Platinum Dreamville album Revenge of the Dreamers III.

Make Happy Your New Normal

Never has there been a more pressing need for an app that makes happiness possible every day. And while mindfulness mobile apps are a dime a dozen, The Happy Habit app’s distinctive aesthetic sets it apart.

Designed and developed by Melbourne app development company, Wave Digital, together with creator of The Happy Habit, Fleur Chambers, this beautifully crafted app guides users to find and savour moments of happiness every day.

Fleur Chambers is an internationally recognised meditation teacher and the voice, creative mind and heart behind The Happy Habit. Her vision – to create a more intimate space for her guided meditations. With an existing following of more than 600,000 people across 30 countries, Fleur’s goal was to create a bespoke iPhone and Android app that made it easier to be mindful every day.

The Happy Habit app supports users to create a daily meditation habit. Features include the ability to select micro meditations, which are no longer than 4 minutes in length, and to set daily reminders. The app also provides access to hundreds of guided meditations designed to help users either create, grow or explore. Users can choose to listen to meditations with music or without. 

What is truly unique about The Happy Habit app, however, is its distinctive visual identity. This was achieved by designing a unique logo and colour palette, supported with idiosyncratic illustrations to breathe personality into a digital product. The result – an exquisite, organic and approachable visual design with a user experience that is intuitive enough to easily guide users on their practice.

Available on iOS and Android devices for free, and with over 750 downloads and almost 3,000 meditations played in its first 30 days, The Happy Habit app is quickly making happy the new normal.
