DURAN DURAN – ALL OF YOU

With their highly anticipated North American tour starting next month, on July 14, Duran Duran have announced the limited 12” vinyl release of ‘ALL OF YOU’ (EROL ALKAN EXTENDED REWORK), out October 14th and available to pre-order HERE via Phantasy Sound.

Having co-produced Duran Duran’s acclaimed fifteenth studio album, ‘FUTURE PAST’, Erol Alkan returns to deliver a very special Extended Rework. Paying tribute to the band’s pioneering ‘Night Version’ remixes that tipped their earliest material towards the dance floor, this grandiose reimagining equally recalls Alkan’s beloved reworks from over the years.

Recorded with founding members Simon Le BonNick RhodesJohn Taylor, and Roger Taylor, ‘ALL OF YOU’ also features lead guitar from Graham Coxon and backing vocals by Barli. Blessed with the raw material, Alkan distills each element into a glorious disco odyssey totaling nearly ten minutes, an epic but sensual dance floor trip that already ranks amongst his finest work.

Phantasy is proud to release ALL OF YOU’ (EROL ALKAN EXTENDED REWORK) (backed with an instrumental version) on a limited run of 12” vinyl, with an exclusive red vinyl edition of only 300, available only at Rough Trade stores.

Pre-order ‘ALL OF YOU (EROL ALKAN EXTENDED REWORK)’ on 12” vinyl HERE.

Originally debuted by Erol Alkan in Ibiza at the band’s three night ‘Duran Duran: Touch The Sunrise’ immersive weekend experience that lifted the curtain on the island’s summer season, the extended rework is a hypnotic, expansive ode to the FUTURE PAST album highlight. Duran Duran‘s instantly recognizable sound is complemented with new accents and flourishes – John Taylor‘s head-nodding bass line entwines with Graham Coxon‘s guitar lead, both shot through with instant hooks and punctuated by Nick Rhodes’ cinematic keys.

The extended rework arrives as Duran Duran look ahead to their long-awaited North American headlining tour this summer, celebrating the band’s spectacular four-decade career and in continued support of their critically acclaimed 15th studio album, FUTURE PAST.

Starting August 19, the 14-date tour will see the multi-platinum, award-winning legends play iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York City, the Wynn Las Vegas, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, amongst others. Tickets for the band’s North American tour are on sale now. Please visit http://duranduran.com/tour/ for details and to purchase tickets.

Joining as special guests for all shows except Las Vegas (which is billed as ‘an evening with’) and Los Angeles will be Nile Rodgers & CHIC.

In other exciting news, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame announced that Duran Duran will be inducted this fall, joining a long list of ground-breaking global icons before them. The 37th Annual Ceremony is set to take place November 5th at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

With a career that has seen more than 100 million record sales worldwide, 21 UK Top 20 tunes and 18 American hit singles, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction truly cements the multi-GRAMMY, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello winners as one of the most successful and influential bands of all time.

Duran Duran’s current album, ‘FUTURE PAST’ is available digitally as well as in a variety of physical formats: standard CD, cassette, a limited edition deluxe hardback book CD featuring three additional tracks, and colored vinyl here.  It is also available in immersive Sony 360 Reality Audio on Amazon Music HD, TIDAL HiFi, and Deezer HiFi.

Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with ‘FUTURE PAST,’ Duran Duran have delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics (‘BEAUTIFUL LIES,’ ‘TONIGHT UNITED’), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on ‘GIVE IT ALL UP,’ ‘Queen of Drill’ Ivorian Doll on ‘HAMMERHEAD’ and Japan’s CHAI on ‘MORE JOY!’.  In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer ‘FALLING’. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on ‘WING,’ and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.

Ingrid Michaelson – Songs For The Season

Patron saint of charming Christmas tunes, Ingrid Michaelson releases her cheerful original duet “Merry Christmas, Happy New Year (Feat. Zooey Deschanel).” Alongside the release, she shares an undeniably adorable stop motion visual featuring a bundled-up rabbit spreading holiday joy. The track is off her upcoming album Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs For The Season – Deluxe Edition, out on November 5th.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year (Feat. Zooey Deschanel) is soon to be a catchy Christmas classic, with the two beloved vocalists sharing their favorite things about the season over bright jingling bells. The visuals, created by Andrea Love and author/illustrator Phoebe Wahl, capture the holiday spirit through stop motion fuzzy woodland critters.

Ingrid says, “I don’t think you’ll meet someone who loves Christmas more than I do, and it is the same thing for Christmas music. I knew I wanted to put out a deluxe album even before I put out the original album! There’s just too much music to choose from. I’m incredibly honored that another self-proclaimed Christmas lover, Zooey Deschanel, is joining me on a new original, “Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!” When she said yes (over Twitter) it was truly an early Christmas gift!”

Zooey on the track, It was a joy and an honor to co-write and sing this song with Ingrid! We hope it brings joy to everyone who listens.

Listen & Watch Merry Christmas, Happy New Year (Feat. Zooey Deschanel)

Tickets are on sale for Ingrid’s 15th Annual Holiday Hop at New York City’s Webster Hall. The EMMY Award-nominated and multi-platinum-certified New York singer/songwriter will take the stage Sunday, December 5th and perform tracks off of her upcoming holiday album Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs For The Season – Deluxe Edition’ along with other festive tunes. After last year’s 14th Annual Holiday Hop: Virtual Edition, Ingrid is thrilled to be back in front of fans  performing beloved holiday renditions.

Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs For The Season’ was originally released in October 2018, and the project’s new deluxe edition will debut with five new tracks. Full tracklist below.

Ingrid explains, When I released my first Christmas album in 2018 I already knew there would one day be a deluxe. And here we are! I have added 3 classics and one original (with Zooey Deschanel) to create an even greater festive experience! It was very important to me to keep everything in that vintage/nostalgic world. Zooey’s voice is just perfect for that sound. Warm and comforting.

Classic Queensrÿche Albums Get Special Reissue

LANDMARK QUEENSRŸCHE ALBUMS ‘OPERATION: MINDCRIME’ AND ‘EMPIRE’ DUE JUNE 25 AS DEFINITIVE BOX SET COLLECTIONS

On June 25, Capitol/UMe will celebrate two landmark progressive metal albums by Queensrÿche. The breakthrough collection Operation: Mindcrime and its successful follow-up, Empire, will be released in multiple formats. In addition to the original versions remastered for CD and 180-gram vinyl 2LP, both titles will be available in expanded 2CD editions and in multi-disc CD+DVD box sets that stand as the final word on these albums, which carried the ambitious conceptual approach of such artists as The Who and Pink Floyd to a new decade and to a new hard rock audience.

Newly mastered at Abbey Road Studios, the deluxe versions of these remarkable albums bring together all the available recordings in 10′′ x 10′′ boxes that also contain DVDs of accompanying promotional videos and live performances of the albums. The live audio material revisits Queensrÿche’s worldwide headlining status during the Building Empires Tour, an 18-month trek that saw the band headline arenas after previous high-profile supporting slots on the Def Leppard Hysteria and Metallica And Justice For All tours. The Operation: Mindcrime deluxe features live audio concerts from London’s Hammersmith Odeon in 1990 and Wisconsin’s Target Center in 1991, plus a DVD that also includes the bonus track “The Making of Operation: Mindcrime” and an Operation: Mindcrime TV spot. The Empire deluxe version completes the Hammersmith Odeon 1990 concert with the live audio from the non-Mindcrime setlist. Geoff Tate, inducted into the 2020 Metal Hall of Fame, sheds new light on Operation: Mindcrime and Empire in extended interviews with noted journalist Alex Milas for the liner notes.

The deluxe versions of Operation: Mindcrime (originally released May 1988) and Empire (originally released August 1990) are available for preorder now. Ahead of — and leading up to — the releases, the celebration of these comprehensive box sets and releases includes a weekly premiere of remastered high-definition video on Queensrÿche’s official YouTube channel, HERE. With its sinister backdrops, a dramatic unfolding of characters and Queensrÿche’s high-octane stage performance, the Operation: Mindcrime HD remastered video, available now, provides a glimpse into the album’s intricate concept. The HD remastered video rollout for Operation: Mindcrime continues with Eyes Of A Stranger (May 14) and Grammy®-nominated single for Best Metal Performance I Don’t Believe In Love (May 21), all of which bring the plot to life. HD remastered video premieres from Empire are the title track, Empire, (May 28), Best I Can (June 4), Anybody Listening? (June 11), the Grammy®-nominated No. 1 rock hit Silent Lucidity (June 18) and, on release day, June 25, remastered HD videos will premiere for two more fan favorites Another Rainy Night (Without You) and Jet City Woman.  

Queensrÿche’s third studio album, Operation: Mindcrime, took the quintet to an entirely new level. The concept, revealed through the songs, revolves around the character of Nikki, a recovering drug addict disillusioned with a corrupt society. Drawn into a cult-like revolutionary group headed by Dr. X (voiced by the late and beloved British actor Anthony Valentine), Nikki is manipulated to assassinate political leaders until his friendship with nun Sister Mary finally opens his eyes to the truth. Regarded as one of the greatest concept metal albums of all time, Operation: Mindcrime was certified platinum in 1991 in the U.S. and was ranked in the Top 100 Metal Albums Of All Time by both Kerrang! and Billboard magazines. Rolling Stone included it on a similar list, noting that nearly 30 years after its initial release, Mindcrime feels eerily relevant.

Reaching No. 7 on the Billboard album chart, the follow-up, Empire, built upon the success of Operation: Mindcrime. Produced, like its predecessor, by Peter Collins (Bon Jovi, Rush, Alice Cooper), the collection features brilliant and intelligent lyrics and songwriting complemented by incredible musicianship, with songs ranging from beautiful ballads to strong melodic rockers and classic heavy fist-pumpers. A rarity at the time, Empire spawned six singles that lit up Billboard’s rock tracks chart with the Top 10 hits Silent Lucidity (#1), Jet City Woman (#6), Another Rainy Night (Without You) (#7) and Top 30 hits Anybody Listening? (#16), Empire (#22) and Best I Can (#28). The power ballad Silent Lucidity was the band’s first crossover hit, topping the Billboard rock singles chart and reaching No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Silent Lucidity also earned a Grammy® nomination for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group and received an MTV Viewer’s Choice award. RIAA-certified triple-platinum, Empire is the band’s most commercially successful album to date.

Progressive metal greats Queensrÿche emerged from Bellevue, Washington, in 1982 and have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

The Mavericks’ Deluxe Album

THE MAVERICKS Announce A May 21st Album Release For Their Special “En Español Edición Deluxe”

New Addition & Perfect Summer Song “Por Ti (Yo Quiero Ser)” – A Boisterous, Up-Tempo And Distinctively Mavericks Horn Driven Extravaganza – Will Be Released May 14th As An Advance Single & Sure Live Set Addition As The Band Returns To Touring

The first Spanish-language album from The Grammy, CMA, and ACM Winning Band, The Mavericks “En Espanol” scored a #1 debut on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums chart, became the first ever album to notch simultaneous Latin and Americana Top 10 Chart entries, holds a current nomination for Best Independent Latin Album of the Year, and received ‘Best of 2020’ praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, Pop Matters, The Tennessean, and more. 

The Mavericks have just announced plans for a May 21st album release for their special “En Español Edición Deluxe” – with a new and infectious single “Por Ti (Yo Quiero Ser)” / “For You (I Want To Be)” arriving in advance on Friday, May 14th. 

Born of Cuban-American roots in Miami, and then long based in Nashville where they perfected their distinctive and eclectic Americana / Roots fusion of Country, Rock and Tejano/Tex-Mex influences, The Mavericks decided to expand their musical palette even further last year with the release of their first All-Spanish language album in celebration of the Latin cultural roots of co-founder/singer Raul Malo and guitarist Eddie Perez.  Comprised of a collection of their own Spanish language originals, and classic Latin tracks from which they drew inspiration, The Maverick’s “En Español” proved to be a groundbreaking project, uniting fans across cultures, genres and languages, right from its late August 2020 release, as the album notched #1 debuts on Billboard’s “Latin Pop Albums” chart, the iTunes and Amazon Latin Music charts and became the first-ever album landing simultaneously in the Top-10 of the Americana and Latin Music charts. 

Reaction to the album has continued to grow even stronger since, with a wealth of media praise in The United State and Latin America, performances on Austin City Limits (PBS), The Latin Alternative Music Conference, and The Hispanic Heritage Awards, a current award nomination alongside Bad Bunny for the Best Independent Latin Album of the Year, and multiple “Best of 2020” album picks that impressively spanned, Mainstream, Country, Americana, and Latin music critic lists.

Now, The Mavericks will commemorate this very special album chapter of their 30-year career, with the May 21st “En Español Edicion Deluxe” expanding the collection to both meet existing fan requests for more Mavericks tracks in Spanish, and to give even wider audiences to discover this cultural celebration with the start of summer and the beloved live band returning again to concert stages with a quickly growing list of scheduled appearances These dates already include an August 21st En Español 1-year anniversary celebratory appearances at Los Angeles’ Greek theatre: co-headlining with Los Lobos, and with feature support from Ozomatli and more, as well as multiple West Coast, Midwest, and Northeast tour dates, and a very  special two-Nights at the Famed Ryman Auditorium in December. Check all tour dates here!

A new track that is sure to have audiences up and dancing out on the road will be this Friday’s release of perfect summertime single ‘Por Ti (Yo Quiero Ser)’ – a Mavericks’ original, uptempo and horn heavy dancefloor magnet that describes a forbidden romance between two star-crossed lovers as it builds to an explosive and anthemic finale. Upon the album release, fans can also look forward to a beautiful acoustic Ranchera Version of original album single ‘Poder Vivir’, as performed by the Mavericks on their 2020 livestream series The Mavericks Show here,  the unmistakable vibes of Raul Malo original song ‘Mujer’, featuring a ‘poolside’ remix by acclaimed, Latin Grammy-nominated cumbia DJ El Dusty and a special Nick Farrow alternate cover of the embraced ‘La Catrina’ artwork by award-winning artist Dolan Geiman.

“This vibrant, sit-up-and-take-notice album has tunes that should bring the band’s country and rock fans easily over the border. But the Mavericks also do a lot of genre-melding, taking original and classic Latin songs and making them their own using everything from vintage rock to mariachi” – Pop Matters

F-wheel A5 Electric Bike illustrated by Heather Skovlund for 360 Magazine

F-wheel A5 Electric Bike

By: Heather Skovlund x Vaughn Lowery

The F-wheel A5 electric bike has all the perks to an e-bike that you could dream of having while headed to your destination. It sports 14-inch wheels, an ergonomically designed frame, seating for adults and kids, and is easy to maneuver and store tight spaces with its folding capabilities. While you’re likely to see tons of these types of e-bikes zipping around just about any city in China, it’s a fairly extraordinary e-bike in the US. 

Curb Appeal

Affiliates of 360 Magazine had the opportunity to test the capability of the F-wheel A5 e-bike. The A5 is sleek and holds a trendy appearance with its 14-inch wheels and minimalist aluminum alloy frame. The A5 is designed for dense urban living with its durability, upgraded seat, and back seat perfect for transporting cargo (with bungee cords) or even a second person/child. The F-wheel is available in three colors: black, red, and white. This sleek e-bike is available in F-wheel A5 Standard as well as F-wheel A5 Deluxe. To customize the look of your new ride, look no further than Gabe Majalca, mastermind of Good Vibe Gliders for an enhanced flare.

Performance

With the amazing durability of the F-wheel A5, you will be able to sightsee in style and go shopping on a whim. The powerful 350W 48V motor will get you to your destination with ease with a max speed of 25KM/H. The F-wheel runs on a 7.5AH battery that is portable and removable, which is fantastic for charging. The added suspensions work nicely for a smoother ride with a noticeable difference in the seat post suspension. The acceleration is powerful, it has been reviewed at around 500W continuous and up to 750W peak for speeds. There are three different riding modes with the A5: Pure Electric Mode, Boost Mode, and Manpower Mode. The F-wheel A5 Deluxe is equipped with a LG lithium battery with a capacity of up to 21AH, with a BMS battery management system to help battery life up to 180KM.

Technology

As previously mentioned, the A5 has three different riding modes. The first, Pure Electric Mode, allows you to ride with no cycling of the pedals. The second, Boost Mode, allows you to pedal with an assist from the power source. Lastly, Manpower Mode, enables you to ride like a human-powered bicycle – no need to power on. There is a power display and real-time speed display in addition to the different modes offered: eco, medium and high. The A5 comes with two keys as well as two fobs to easily start the e-bike up. There is also an extra removable battery. The front and rear brakes work well as well as the front lights and taillights. There is a light on the back of the bike that lights up “EBIKE” which adds a subtle touch of flare to the bike. This e-bike is low maintenance without a derailleur or gears. The 14-inch tires are in a mag wheel – there are no spokes that need to be tuned or that will break. The F-wheel A5 weighs 22.5KG and easily folds up for easier transportation such as when you’re heading into an elevator, riding the Amtrack, climbing stairs or simply placing the e-bike in your apartment. Just simply fold the handlebars down, fold the frame in the front, fold the pedals down, remove the seat and you’re set. There are also sensors on the A5 to notify you if someone or something is too close the bike along with a lock on the battery.

Competition

Competition is very limited with the sleek improvements of the F-wheel A5 electric bike (formally DYU Smart Electric Bike D3). Priced at $700 and worth every cent. The closest competitor is the EB7 Elite Commuter from Swagtron. The next competitor would be the Flido D25 Folding Electric Commuter Bike. The electric bike trend has been on the rise due to communities embracing the go “green” activity. A review left on DYU’s website from Clayton Kent states that the A5 is the “perfect commuter bike enduring at least 70 NYC blocks a day” as well as “it has saved me a lot of money not having to use the train”. With the new improvements to the design and overall functionality to the F-wheel A5 electric bike, it is sure to be the front runner for delivery workers, professionals, and kids at heart.
