The musical synergy from the collective artists on the collaboration is palpable as “Running” ignites into a primed dancefloor player. Addictive and memorable, thanks to warm piano tones and Theresa Rex’s vocal, which is snappy and is striking from the first listen.

Cheat Codes have expertly crafted countless electronic music anthems, spanning dance, pop, hip-hop, and alternative. A formula has seen them excel in the streaming world, clocking in over 6 billion total streams, amounting to them being one of the “Top 200 Most Listened to Artists in the World”. The LA-based trio that consists of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell has also collaborated with a string of high-profile artists that include Afrojack, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Barker, Tove Styrke and Demi Lovato.

Cheat Codes said, “We are excited to kick off 2022 with ‘Running’ alongside our friends Martin and Theresa, we wanted to bring as much positivity and vibrance into the production and accomplish something anthemic! We hope everyone had a Happy New Year and are ready to hit the ground RUNNING in 2022.”

Danish singer Theresa Rex is the voice behind numerous hits, working with great artists like Jonas Blue, Alle Farben, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. However, perhaps her most significant success came in her team up with Martin Jensen on the wildly popular “Solo Dance,” Martin’s breakthrough single, which stands at over 653 million streams on Spotify alone. 

On the collaboration, Rex says, “It was so special working with Martin and the whole team again. It has been a moment since ‘Solo Dance’ came out, but I think that ‘Running’ is the perfect follow up and adding Cheat Codes to the mix has made it pure magic.”

Martin Jensen added, “The energy working with this whole team was incredible. Reuniting with Theresa meant we had to do something extraordinary, so who better to do that with than our good friends Cheat Codes.”

Jensen enjoyed a stellar 2020, capping off the year with two epic homecomings Me, Myself, Live shows in November, a year in the making and the evolution of his Me, Myself, Online shows launched during the lockdown to keep connected to his fans. Martin also returned for his second series as a judge on the Danish X-Factor series, where he remains the first DJ to do so. Martin also had a great year on the music front, receiving BBC Radio 1 support on his single “Can’t Come To The Phone” with Amber Van Day and N.F.I and releasing “Make My Mind Go,” with Rompasso, FAULHABER and JONASU.

With its memorable and hard-hitting bassline, this infectious tune chronicles the magic of festivals and the adventures within. BEAUZ collaborated with NINEONE#, one of China ‘s most popular singers/rappers on “RAVE GAME,“ mixing their party-ready beat backdrop with her velvety vocals.

About BEAUZ

Nija – Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You

Capitol Records recording artist Nija announced the January 28 release of her debut solo project, Don‘t Say I Didn‘t Warn You, and unveiled the album‘s cover artwork. Now available for pre-order/pre-save HERE, Don‘t Say I Didn‘t Warn You is a brash and self-assured work, an R&B project that takes cues from hip-hop‘s confidence and pairs it with a no-nonsense approach all Nija‘s own. It was executive produced by Jack Rochon.

“I‘m taking the power role,“ says Nija. “There‘s vulnerability in the music but it‘s a different approach. Instead of ‘oh, you hurt me,‘ it‘s like, ‘Damn, you did that to me? That‘s crazy. I‘ma move on but you fucked up for that.‘“

After dropping her first three singles in 2021 “Ease My Mind (Come Over),“ “Finesse“ and “On Call“  Nija has been dropping hints about the project by posting snippets on YouTube and TikTok and sharing playlists on Spotify and TIDAL. She‘s been named as one of Vevo DSCVR Artists To Watch 2022 and was tapped by Spotify to help launch its new Lyrics feature.

Born in New Jersey and now based in Los Angeles, Nija had written scores of Billboard Hot 100 hits before she had even turned 21 Rolling Stone called her “one of music‘s most sought-after songwriters.“ Now at 23,  the three-time GRAMMY Award-winning contributor is gaining widespread acclaim for  her own music and relishing in the freedom to fully express herself. People said, “the brain behind some of the biggest hits is  now ready to make a name for herself.“ VIBE hailed her as “a vocal talent whose sultry tone brings her lyrics to life.“

“There‘s a stigma against songwriters turning into artists because usually they give all their sauce away,“ says Nija. “But I‘ve always made sure I went above and beyond people‘s expectations, so don‘t say I didn‘t warn you about that.“

GirlzLuhDev – Leg or Arm

Inland Empire rapper GirlzLuhDev‘s latest sensual single “Leg or Arm” brings a bit of summer warmth to the depths of winter. The track, which is out now on Capitol Records, is built around soft keyboards and West Coast bounce that provide a canvas for Dev’s mischievous and fun vocals. Listen HERE.

The dizzy, intimate production of “Leg or Arm” feels like a dreamy afternoon in the California sun. It’s pure warmth, an escape from the troubles of the world. Dev flows like a breeze, sipping Shirley Temples, messing around with a girl, and playfully wondering if he’ll end up being talked about in her groupchat. When he croons about “riding round with blicky and designer clothes,” it sounds less like a threat than a positive affirmation. Dev places gangsta tropes in new contexts, making every bar feel like a celebration. He’s the fun-loving ball of energy and melody that rap needs, next in a lineage of West Coast rap-singers.

“Leg or Arm” follows a hot streak of memorable singles from Dev, including the pounding “Gas Me Up” and the somber “Dead Bro.” This track kicks off a new year for the 18-year-old rising star as he continues to build on the success that began with 2020’s “Tooka,” which launched him to the national stage and earned him a deal with Capitol. The game needs rappers as charismatic as Dev, and with each passing track, he’s proving that he’s rare indeed. Dev has amassed over 34 million streams in the U.S. alone.

About GirlzLuhDev

GirlzLuhDev is a rapper, singer, ex-basketball star, and quite possibly America’s next great hitmaker. Oh, and he’s a senior in high school. The 18-year-old artist from California’s Inland Empire is a year into making music but has already landed a viral hit, the raunchy but blissed out “Tooka.” Supported by simple beats and rich keys, he parlays his youthful energy into a bright blend of bars, warbled melodies, and ad-libs that sound like smack talk beamed down from a distant planet. Its sun-baked West Coast Street rap meets the wonky charm of a kid with nothing to lose. Signed to Capitol Records, Dev has his sights set on the national spotlight.

Featuring lyrics and melody of Sir Rod Stewart’s “Baby Jane”

The program will feature ITNY performer and Buckskill Winter Club Skating Director Sarah France, as well as many local skaters. ITNY performances will include:

  • Skating artist Valerie Levine, who will perform “Amour, Amour,” inspired by the work of contemporary dance choreographer Jody Sperling and influenced by the art of Loie Fuller, one of the great pioneers of American dance.
  • “Dance with Me” featuring Liz Schmidt and Danil Berdnikov.
  • “I Will Fall For You” featuring Sarah France ice dancing her own choreography to the music of Woodkid.
  • Skating artist Armen Agaian, who will perform “Take Five,” choreographed for Armen by Eliot Halverson. The music is composed by Paul Desmond in the classic recording of the David Brubeck Quartet.
  • Junior Ensemble member and National solo ice dance competitor Milly Wasserman, who will skate her own choreography in a solo ice dance piece. 
  • Liz Schmidt, who will perform “When Atoms Embrace”, a solo choreographed and costumed by original John Curry Theatre of Skating member, Lorna Brown. The piece is set to Music by Arvo Part’s “Spiegel Im Spiegel.”

This program is supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy C. Hochul and the New York State Legislature. ITNY is also supported by the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and NYC Council Member Mark Levine and Dance/NYC‘s Coronavirus Dance Relief Fund. Additionally, ITNY receives funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Lisa McGraw Figure Skating Foundation, the Will Sears Foundation, and its generous private patrons.

About the Performers

Armen Againan joined Ice Theatre of New York as an artist in 2018. He has been ice skating since 2002 developing into a 5-time National Champion in his native country of Georgia and participated in the Junior World Championships three times. He has also participated in the 2013 Youth Olympic games, the Junior Grand Prix (2012-2015), and the 2016 European Championships. When not performing, Armen works as a skating coach in New York.

Danil Berdnikov is from the city of Samara, Russia. Berdnikov was a part of the junior national team and competed within Russia until he completed high school. He then decided to move to Moscow to continue his education and join Stage Entertainment Russia for an opportunity to begin performing as an ice skater. Performing for an audience, he fell in love with skating in a new way, so he has continued to skate professionally for the past eight years. Over the course of his professional skating career, he had the privilege of working for Willy Bietak Productions and Wheeler Productions in the US, Stageworks Worldwide Production in the UK, and Holiday on Ice Productions and Dynamic Shows Entertainment in the EU. Stage Entertainment Russia has brought him many different opportunities, including the chance to travel the world and do what he truly loves. He is very grateful to his parents, coaches, choreographers, and fellow skaters who have supported him along the way, and he is very excited to fulfill another incredible dream of performing for Ice Theatre of New York, Inc. 

Sarah France, U.S. Figure Skating triple gold medalist, national ice dance competitor, and six-time US Open Professional Figure Skating Championships competitor, realized one of her childhood inspirations when she joined ITNY in the spring of 2019. Before taking the ice, she explored her love of movement, studying ballet and eventually performing professionally in modern dance and several other disciplines as well as skating and teaching. France has been an ice dance coach and choreographer since 1998, working with Regional, Sectional, National, and International competitors across all skating disciplines at Shattuck St. Mary’s in Minnesota, where she remains faculty-member-at-large. She also serves as Director of Skating at City Ice Pavilion in Long Island City. A native of Pittsburgh, PA, she now resides in NYC.

Valerie Levine has collaborated on ITNY events for the past two decades and has been roller-skating as well as dancing tap, jazz, and ballet since the age of 4. She started training in figure skating at 11 and went on to compete and test until she graduated high school, turning down Disney On Ice to pursue her bachelor’s degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) instead of going on tour. At 19, she earned her Gold level Senior Ladies Moves and Pre-golds in ice dance before skating professionally as an ice girl for the NHL New York Rangers and Islanders. While earning her BS in Product Management Textiles from FIT, she minored in dance and trained at Broadway Dance Center in many dance styles, which led to an off-ice career as a professional belly dancer, ballroom dancer, Brazilian samba dancer, and more. She currently teaches and performs all of these styles worldwide as well as managing her own entertainment company, Valerina Dance.

Elizabeth (Liz) Schmidt has been skating with ITNY since 2017. Luscious edges, artistic dynamic movement, and traditional ice dancing inform her skating and professional career which began in 2013 at the age of 18, performing internationally in Germany and across the US. A Japanese/German American skater who hails from Chicago, IL, she recently moved from San Francisco to New York City. A U.S. Figure Skating Double Gold medalist in Freestyle and Moves in the Field, and a Silver medalist in Ice Dancing, Liz received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2018 and has exhibited her work across the Bay Area.

About Ice Theatre of New York

Wolverine #20 Cover Art via Adam Kubert for Marvel Comics for use by 360 Magazine

New Wolverine Era

Wolverine‘s ongoing series returns this April with more thrills by the same all-star creative team, writer Benjamin Percy and artist Adam Kubert. The duo of masterful Wolverine storytellers has been delivering non-stop action-packed adventures in what is shaping up to be one of the greatest Wolverine runs in recent history. Now in the aftermath of X LIVES OF WOLVERINE/X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE, they’re back to take the character on some of his most brutal missions yet. And this time, Deadpool is coming along for the ride!

Deadpool was the king of Staten Island—now he wants to be an honorary citizen of Krakoa. Wolverine just wants him to shut up. But when Deadpool uncovers a dangerous plot that could mean doom for the mutants’ safe haven, it’s going to take a titanic team-up of the best there is and the Merc with a Mouth to quell the threat. But that doesn’t mean Logan has to like it. This comic features Wolverine and Deadpool at their most savage plus the return of a fan-favorite X-character!

“For ten weeks, the X LIVES OF WOLVERINE/X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE will take readers on an epic, time-shredding adventure that sets up the next era of the mutant books: Destiny of X. How do you follow up something like that? You keep raising the bar higher. Readers will not only experience a non-stop thrill ride, starting in April, but a kickoff story that is as irreverent and hilarious as it is heart-bruised,” Percy promises. “We’ve been teasing Deadpool for some time now, and he’s bullying his way into the pages of Wolverine for a wild (and reluctant) team-up that feels like some cousin to Midnight Run and The Fugitive. Get ready for more Maverick mayhem, more CIA spycraft, and more danger at every turn.”

“Every time a new character or storyline is introduced in WOLVERINE, it feels like a fresh start and an opportunity for Ben and me to reinvent the wheel,” Kubert said. “’WOLVERINE #20’ is no exception with one exception: Deadpool’s not a new character. Having drawn him before (most recently on the cover to “DEADPOOL BLACK WHITE AND BLOOD” #1), I feel more like I’m visiting an old friend. Things change, yes, but our relationship stays the same. For me, Deadpool remains one of MARVEL’s greatest characters. Featuring him alongside Wolverine doesn’t get any better and I hope (and think) you’ll feel the same…” 

“I know this is impossible to fathom, but Adam Kubert has never been better,” Percy said of his legendary collaborator. “His mind-blowing layouts, including a motorcycle action sequence for the ages, are beyond comparison.

“Without giving away any spoilers, this is going to be an explosive and complicated year for the mutants,” Percy added. “You’ll soon learn how the future of Krakoa (and mutant-kind) is in peril, and Wolverine will of course be at the center of it all, slashing and hacking away.” 

Wolverine and Deadpool. When these two get together, what force in the Marvel Universe would dare get in their way? Find out when WOLVERINE #20 hits stands on April 20.
