Kali Uchis Earns “Inspira Honoree” at Hispanic Heritage Awards

THE HISPANIC HERITAGE AWARDS WILL RECOGNIZE KALI UCHIS AS THE 2021 INSPIRA HONOREE, THE COLOMBIAN-AMERICAN SINGER WILL ALSO PERFORM DURING THE 34th HISPANIC HERITAGE AWARDS BROADCAST, PRESENTED BY TARGET, OCTOBER 8th ON PBS

The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) announced today that fast-rising Colombian-American GRAMMY winner KALI UCHIS will be recognized as this year’s Inspira Honoree and perform during the October 8th broadcast of the 34th Annual Hispanic Heritage Awards. The Inspira Award was created to honor Latinx role models that provide inspiration for youth on a national stage.

The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is thrilled to recognize Kali Uchis with the Inspira Award, said Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of HHF.  As an international star, Kali has used her exceptional talents, authentic presence, and positive energy to inspire youth as well as proudly represent her Latinx culture. We are also excited to have Kali perform during the Hispanic Heritage Awards on PBS and join us in celebrating Latinx accomplishment, vision and culture with all of America.

Raised between Virginia and Colombia, Kali Uchis rose to prominence with her project Por Vida in 2015. Uchis’ 2018 debut album, Isolation, received widespread critical acclaim and was featured on Best Of lists in Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR, Vulture and many more. Uchis has collaborated and shared stages with Gorillaz, Jorja Smith, Juanes, Diplo, Major Lazer, Tyler, The Creator, Daniel Caesar, Bootsy Collins, Snoop Dogg, Kaytranada, Leon Bridges and more and has toured the world over, with much-lauded sets headlining at Coachella, Governors Ball, Tropicalia and Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and many others.

With her second studio album, and first all-Spanish Language release Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) Uchis’ career has continued to surge forward at an astounding pace.  The album quickly notched the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart, and recently launched the smash hit telepatía – notching Kali a Tonight Show performance, her first #1 single on the Hot Latin Songs chart, over 635 million global song streams, and impressively landing in the Top-5 of Billboard’s recent Best Songs of 2021 So Far selections. 

This year’s Awards, modeled after last year’s PBS broadcast, will once again feature more intimately filmed performances and Honoree segments captured on location across the United States and Latin America.  Last year’s program had the highest ratings and reached more people in the PBS Broadcasts’ history with Awardees including Bad Bunny, Selena Gomez, Linda Ronstadt, Jessica Alba, John Lewis, and our Farmworkers, with performances by Sebastian Yatra, Jessie Reyez, Sech, Calma Carmona, Flor de Toloache and a grand finale tribute to Linda Ronstadt anchored by The Mavericks featuring Latina vocalists: Joy Huerta of Jesse and Joy, Lupita Infante, La Marisoul of La Santa Cecilia, Gaby Moreno and Carla Morrison.

The Hispanic Heritage Awards were created by the White House in 1988 to commemorate the establishment of Hispanic Heritage Month in America and is among the highest honors by Latinos for Latinos and supported by 40 national Hispanic-serving institutions. Watch a video here

Carly Gibert "Interstellar" image via Abby Harari at Def Jam Recordings and 10:22PM for use by 360 Magazine

Carly Gibert QxA

Carly Gibert is a 19-year-old house, R&B, and pop music artist, who recently was signed to 10:22PM/Def Jam Recordings. The bi-lingual, Spanish born singer just released her groovy single, “Interstellar,” which reflects on her move from Spain to LA. The disco-inspired bop appears on NOW Volume 79, and can be listened to HERE. Gibert has been making music since the age of four, and her passion for creating is evident in all of her releases. We sat down with the rising house star to speak about the inspiration behind her latest release, her songwriting process, and whats to come next in 2021.

  1. What inspired you to write “Interstellar?”

“Interstellar” is about trying to make someone care for you as much as you care for them. You would do anything for the other person, but they only think about what’s best for them. When I moved to LA from Spain–where I was born and raised–I kind of started a new life, it felt like living in another universe. “Interstellar” actually means “living between stars,” and that is how LA felt to me. It only took me moving to the other side of the planet to realize that I wasn’t taking care of myself. It also references the movie Interstellar (which is one of my favorite movies of all time) with its theme of leaving your life behind and starting over in an entirely different setting.

  1. How would you describe the sound of “Interstellar” in three words?

Futuristic, disco and progress.

  1. What musicians influence your music style the most?

Not specifically for this song, but I grew up with and have always been very inspired by Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Mac Miller and Tyler the Creator. I definitely grew up on house music as well, since my dad would play it at home all the time; and I think you can actually hear that on “Interstellar.” The song has a kind of house vibe to it.

  1. What does your song writing process usually look like? Was this process the same for the writing of “Interstellar”?

I usually start off with one of the 100,000 notes on my phone. I write notes every single day–anywhere, anytime. You never know when the inspiration is going to hit, so this is how I keep track of my thoughts. When I find a lyric idea or a concept that resonates with how I’m feeling, I start writing random lines around it. At first, it honestly doesn’t make any sense and nothing rhymes. At that point, it’s all about placing the right lines in the right places and making them fit into a melody. This was also the writing process of “Interstellar.” I sometimes like to start with the melodies, though, and just build the lyrics based on the melody.

  1. If you could design your dream music festival where you were the headlining act, who would you choose to perform alongside?

If we’re talking about VERY ambitious dreams, I would obviously say Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kanye. Then, of course, Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Doja Cat, Audrey Nuna, SZA, BIA, Anderson .Paak, Rosalía, Saint Bodhi, Little Simz, Kali Uchis, Kaytranada, Rico Nasty, Tinashe, Ryan Beatty, Daniel Caesar, Miguel, Jorja Smith…there are too many great artists.

  1. What has it been like being signed and working with 10:22PM/DefJam?

If someone told me 3 years ago that I would be working with the people I’m working with today, I wouldn’t believe them. The people I’ve met and am surrounded by are some of the people I look up to the most, and I’m so grateful for everyone who made it possible. I have a very close relationship with everyone on my team. I speak to my A&R literally every day, and I’m so lucky to be able to talk directly to the label if I ever need something. I’m super involved in all aspects of my career, so having a direct relationship with the label is very reassuring.

  1. What is something about you or your music that fans might not expect?

I would definitely say singing in Spanish. It’s something I’ve never done before, and I’m so excited to do it. I don’t have any full songs in Spanish at the moment, but I do have some verses here and there. The next song I’m releasing actually includes Spanish verses. Growing up, I was very insecure about singing in Spanish because I thought my accent was weird. It didn’t flow as naturally as English did, even though Spanish is my first language. Through the years, I’ve been practicing improving my diction and I feel a lot more comfortable now. I guess I just had to make it my own and embrace the “Spanish person who can’t articulate Spanish” aspect of myself.

  1. What is next to come from you in 2021?

I have two more songs that I really love coming out in the next couple of months. Hopefully an EP by the end of the year? (Nobody confirmed that—I just made it up—but I’m putting it out in the world). To be honest, all I want to do this year is release all the music I’ve been working on for the past 2 years. These songs are so special to me, and I can’t wait for everyone to listen to what I have to say.

Tainy – MALOS HABITOS

TAINY REVEALS NEW VIDEO FOR “MALOS HABITOS” FEATURING PUERTORICAN NEWCOMER KRIS FLOYD

3 time Latin GRAMMY© Award-winning producer and artist  Tainy,  released the video for  “MALOS HABITOS”  alongside  Puertorican newcomer Kris Floyd. The song is part of “The Kids That Grew Up On Reggaeton- Neon Tapes”, Tainy’s debut EP released earlier this month which consists of 7 songs and features other talented artists such as Dalex, Alvaro Diaz, Sean Paul, Cazzu, Mozart La Para, Lauren Jauregui, C. Tangana, Kali Uchis, Khea, Kris Floyd, Dylan Fuentes, Lennox, Justin Quiles, and Llane.

The video was directed by Elliot Muscat and The Garden and was shot on location in Miami in the middle of the night. Muscat drew inspiration from the up close and personal feel of the 90s shooting styles and tying the camera to the back of a pickup truck giving him the chance to capture Tainy and Kris in the best way.

“This track is special,  it’s Kris Floyd’s debut as part of the NEON16 family, so this is another exciting time for us. It was produced by the very talented Jota Rosa who is also under the NEON incubator. In this song he put his touch and gave the EP the variety it was missing. Kris’ delivery on this track is truly amazing”, comments Tainy.

DAYDREAM MASI × “STARDUST”

DAYDREAM MASI PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “STARDUST”

NEW PROJECT SLOW RAGE DUE OUT SOON

OHIO-BRED ARTIST TO PERFORM AT SMOKIN GROOVES FEST ON 6/15

 

Emerging singer/rapper/songwriter/producer daydream Masi has shared a magnetic and moody new single called “Stardust.” Released via Interscope Records, “Stardust” is available now through all digital retailers.

Listen to “Stardust” by daydream Masi HERE

Hailing from Akron, Ohio, daydream Masi merges hip-hop, soul, R&B, and electronic music into a lush yet bold sound that defies all genre boundaries. On “Stardust,” the 21-year-old artist dreams up a smooth but unpredictable sonic palette, unfolding in airy textures and ominous beats, subtly sweet melodies and jagged distortion.

Last month, daydream Masi made his Interscope debut with “Nightlife,” a hazy and hypnotic track built on tropically inspired production. Now at work on a full-length project titled Slow Rage, he aims to instill a certain sense of emotional purpose into each song he creates.

“I always write something for someone,” says daydream Masi. “It’s rare [that] I’m writing songs for no reason. I’m always thinking of someone in my mind when I’m creating music and the vibe I can give them, the vibe shared together.”

On June 15, daydream Masi will take the stage at Smokin Grooves Fest in Long Beach, CA. Headlined by Usher and Erykah Badu, the festival also includes performances by artists like Ella Mai, Common, Kali Uchis, and The Pharcyde. Go here for more info.

About daydream Masi:

Born and raised in Akron, daydream Masi grew up in a musically inclined family and began to release his own material around the age of 17. Along with mining inspiration from the inventive artistry of Childish Gambino and Kanye West, he’s continually focused on bringing both raw sensitivity and purposeful world-building to his music — a dynamic he defines as “emotional escapism.” Prior to signing with Interscope, daydream Masi caught buzz with self-released songs like “Marguerite” (a track that’s now amassed over 446K streams on SoundCloud) and “Eucalyptus Tree” (now at over 245K streams).

Latinidad in American Festivals

Until recently, urbane Latin music has been scarce in mainstream American music festivals. Thus, the 2019 Coachella latino lineup is a huge deal because it’s the largest and most profitable one on the planet.

In the past, only a few latin artists have performed at the prestigious venue – Cafe Tacvba and The Mars Volta. In 2010, Calle 13 was the first urbano latino artist to hit the stage. In 2018, there were a total of 11 latin artists such as Helado Negro, Ibeyi, Los Angeles Azules, Kali Uchis and Cuco. Fast forward to the present, there’s 17 latin artists slated to perform at this year’s Coachella – a total win for the culture! As we all know, this roster will and has already attracted a much more diverse audience.

As of late, J Balvin brought reggeaton and latin urbano back to the stage. His performance included reggeaton classics like “Oye Mi Canto” by N.O.R.E featuring Nina Sky and “Rakata” by Wisin y Yandel. Bad Bunny took to the stage on April 14th and returns again on the 21st to make a second iconic show. Los Tucanes de Tijuana (popular group from the late 80’s) graced the stage playing “La Chona” and other hits.

Chilean singer, Mon Laferte, has sold over a half of a million albums in Latin America and is also listed on this year’s lineup. Her career began on a singing competition show in Chile, Rojo.

In short, the amount of Latin as well as minority artists added to major festival lineups will continue to develop, namely due to Beyoncé’s Homecoming.

Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ to play Roskilde Festival 2019

More than 180 music acts will play Roskilde Festival 2019. The Cure, Robyn, Travis Scott, Christine and the Queens, Tears for Fears and many more have already been announced, and they will be joined by 28 new artists from five different continents.

The queen of hip-hop
Straight out of the Bronx, 26-year-old Cardi B is set to headline Northern Europe’s biggest festival. The undisputed queen of hip-hop is responsible for chart-topping singles including Bodak Yellow and I Like It from her debut blockbuster album Invasion of Privacy. With seven Grammy nominations to her name, she is the first female rapper in 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the first ever to have three singles in the top 10 at the same time.

English R&B and pop revelation Jorja Smith is also heading for the stars: Having won the Critics’ Choice at the Brit Awards, Jorja Smith finally released her acclaimed debut album Lost & Found last year. The 21-year-old has worked with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kali Uchis and Stormzy, and it is no surprise that she is nominated for Best New Artist at the 2019 Grammys.

Early in her career, Danish superstar  enjoyed a breakthrough on Roskilde Festival’s talent stage. Off the back of her new album Forever Neverland, the Dane is ready to conquer the iconic Orange Stage once again.

Head of programme Anders Wahrén says:
“Cardi B, Jorja Smith and MØ are very different artists, but they’re all bonafide stars. From hip-hop to R&B to pop, they’re shaping the musical landscape, and we can’t wait to see them triumph at Roskilde Festival 2019.”

Bring Me the Horizon are back at Roskilde, this time for a rock lesson on the main stage. Reinvigorated stoner hip-hoppers Cypress Hill are also ready for a triumphant return, 23 years after their last visit, off the back of acclaimed new album Elephants On Acid.

All hail the songwriters of the future
Australian artist Stella Donnelly is one of the most hyped songwriters out there despite not yet having released a full album. Tackling very difficult subjects, her razor-sharp lyrics are personal and brutally honest. Julien Baker, equally, deals with tough issues such as sexuality and self-doubt. She is also part of the alternative supergroup boygenius together with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The latter is also announced today, having released one of the most praised indie rock albums of 2018, Historian.

Virtually unknown outside of London, teenage quartet Black Midi are deemed the next big thing in the UK: Fans of math-rock and noise will have plenty to look forward to here. Plus there’s more from Sophie, Khruangbin, Girlpool and many more.

Roskilde Festival 2019 will be full of talents, and this is reflected in the festival’s Art Zone as well. Danish artists Alexander Tillegreen, Biba Fibiger and Ida Sønder Thorhauge are among the first to be announced for the arts programme along with acclaimed Brazilian artist Assume Vivid Astro Focus who will build a colourful, psychedelic stage in the Art Zone.

The following 28 artists are announced today:
