Quinn XCII- “Notice Me” Visual

QUINN XCII SHARES NEW VISUAL FOR “NOTICE ME”, HIS FAVORITE SONG FROM THE NEW ALBUM A LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

CELEBRATES ALBUM RELEASE WITH 9-SONG FULL-BAND LIVE STREAM PERFORMANCE LAST NIGHT

Fresh off the release of his third album, A Letter To My Younger Self, Quinn XCII has released a new visual for his favorite album track, “Notice Me” – watch HERE. Directed by Blythe Thomas, the video for the infectious song follows a street performer to the Venice Beach boardwalk and coincides with the song’s lyrics about breaking past self-consciousness and fear, and seeking acknowledgement from those around you. The video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live and MTVU.

“’Notice Me’ speaks on all of the shy people out there and those with self-confidence issues,” says Quinn XCII. “The ones who know what they want to say but don’t have the courage yet to speak up. The ones that want to be noticed for once and not just be somebody that blends in.

With five years of touring and several major music festivals around the world under his belt, Quinn XCII brought his sought-after live show to the internet last night. The ‘A Letter To My Younger Self Live Stream Concert’, as part of Live Nation’s “Live From The Living Room” series, was shot live from Los Angeles and allowed fans to see Quinn XCII perform songs from his new album for the first time ever.

A Letter To My Younger Self is available now via Columbia Records.

JONAS BLUE × MAX

Acclaimed British producer/songwriter Jonas Blue teams up with U.S. pop sensation MAX on the feel-good summer romance anthem “Naked,” released today alongside an outrageously fun quarantine video. Buy / stream “Naked” HERE. View the official video HERE.

Laden with hooks, infectious melodies and an indelible guitar line, “Naked” reaffirms Jonas’ reputation for producing world-class hits. Ed Drewett (Little Mix, One Direction), and Sam Romans, who helped pen the U.K.’s biggest single of 2019, Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” collaborated on the track.

In the scintillating official video, directed by Isaac Rentz (Katy Perry, Mabel, Blink 182), Jonas and MAX are joined by a diverse pool of partygoers, oozing the sexy, liberating attitudes of the song. Steeped in neon and rotoscope animation, the clip was created entirely in lockdown, with a little help from Jonas’ family and MAX’s wife.

Jonas Blue says, “Creating ‘Naked’ was such a magic moment in the studio – it all clicked and flowed so naturally. The song is fun, positive and carefree, but also shows a bit of a seductive side. Having MAX feature on it was the perfect combination. He’s got the soul and swagger to deliver this at the perfect level – capturing every emotion. I couldn’t be more excited to get this one out into the world.”

MAX adds, “I’ve been obsessed with ‘Naked’ since the first time I heard the demo. It was like when I met my dog for the first time and knew I had to tell everyone else to back off, he’s mine! There’s something so infectious about it, and when Jonas asked me to sing it, I was extremely honored to be a part of this incredible song.”

Aminé Drops “Riri” Video

Aminé drops co-directed music video for “Riri”

Portland-based rapper, artist, director, culture shaker and innovative ingenue Aminé delivers his video for “Riri” which he co-directed with longtime visual collaborator Jack Bergert. The video was filmed in quarantine around LA mansions with cameos from the likes of beloved sports broadcaster Taylor Rooks. Aminé even locked writer/comedian Jak Knight, from ABC’s Black-ish, for a closing skit in the “RiRi” video.

“We shot this video before the murder of George Floyd & my knowledge of the Breonna Taylor case,” Aminé writes “but I felt compelled to delay its release for obvious reasons. Activism is essential right now so I put my focus there for the past few weeks. We skipped editing sessions to march in the Black Lives Matter protests. I’m dropping the ‘Riri’ video today because it’s important to show black joy in a time where we’re constantly seeing imagery of pain and suffering.”

Pegged “one of the most creative voices in hip-hop, Aminé shakes the culture every time he releases a new song” (Hot New Hip Hop) and “Riri” is no different. Complex Magazine reportedly “wouldn’t be surpris[ed] if the real Rihanna was caught on Instagram enjoying the new tune.” Hypebeast cosigns that “the centerpiece of ‘Riri’ is Aminé’s soulful hook and reflective lyrics buoyed by bassrich production from frequent collaborator Pasqué.”

In addition to the excitement of the new music video, Aminé has also joined forces with former YEEZY designer Sara Jaramillo and Alice Wang’s ILYSM to offer a $500 grant this week for an artist impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns. Applications for this round of #ILYSM4Artists are due by noon EST on Thursday 6/25 at ILYSM.COM .

About Aminé:

Artists who move culture forward create their own. Aminé’s debut LP, “Good For You” did just that for Portland’s music scene, hiphop and the culture at large — buoyed by his 5x platinum RIAA certified breakout smash “Caroline,” “REDMERCEDES” and “Wedding Crashers” [feat. Offset]. The album which displayed mosaic influence from his parents’ Ethiopian heritage to trailblazers like Kanye West and André 3000, made an instantly indelible impact — scoring a RIAA gold certification, millions of singles streams, Spotify #1s, and 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs Chart, peaking at #11. Aminé further solidified himself as a force of nature between explosive festival sets and show-stopping late nights. Maintaining this momentum, while owning his subdued profile and preference for an AirBNB wilderness cabin over a posh studio for recording, Aminé released his self-described 2018 EP/LP/MIXTAPE/ ALBUM “ONEPOINTFIVE.”

Earlier this year, Aminé continued on his promise to change perceptions and defy expectations with “Shimmy” paying homage to his past, while declaring 2020 as his. Accompanied by a co-directed music video love letter to Portland, the song garnered 20 Million streams globally and the gamut of fanfare which you can watch here. Continuing to expand his influence, Aminé also recently appeared on HBO’s Insecure this month.

We knew that in order to create a sustainable digital music event platform, we had to take care of that. With their advanced content ID system and unique music licenses, Mixcloud has been a great partner and we are excited to be leading the movement to pay artists fairly.”

Living at the intersection of music and technology, Rave Family is a production company founded in 2018 by tech and investment veteran, Jackie McGuire. With roots in promoting harm reduction at live music events, Rave Family has always been committed to supporting its community and the causes near to its members hearts, and will continue this initiative for Electric Blockaloo.

Electric Blockaloo will donate 5% of its profits to each of these organizations.

Aminé Releases New Single

AMINÉ RELEASES NEW SINGLE: “RIRI” FOLLOWING “SHIMMY” VIDEO ATTENTION + 5X RIAA CERTIFIED PLATINUM “CAROLINE” SMASH HIT

“…amiable, inventive and idiosyncratic, one of the year’s most intriguing….” — NY TIMES

Today, multiplatinum hip-hop multihyphenate Aminé shares a new single entitled “Riri” showcasing his own verses and vocals alongside a closing skit with writer/comedian Jak Knight from ABC’s Black-ish fame; ahead of forthcoming official music visual arriving on Monday, self-directed in quarantine. The Portland-based rapper, artist, director, culture shaker and innovative ingenue brings dynamics and depth to “Riri”, which heralds the arrival of his anxiously awaited sophomore project and you can listen to here.

Earlier this year, Aminé continued on his promise to change perceptions and defy expectations with “Shimmy” paying homage to his past, while declaring 2020 as his. Accompanied by a co-directed music video love letter to Portland, the song garnered 20 Million streams globally and the gamut of fanfare which you can watch here. In addition to looks from Rolling Stone, Complex, and more, HYPEBEAST claimed, “The song is doused in a scratchy ‘90s-inspired beat, laced with sampled bits from O.D.B., soulful vocal harmonies, trickling sitar notes and crisp drum loops reminiscent of the raw and bare sounds that dominated much of hip-hop in the Golden Age.”

“In the visual… we see the Portland rapper whipping around with his
boys, scaling a mountain, and driving a boat, as he praises the past
while looking to the future.” -COMPLEX

“…the whole thing looks like a love letter to Portland…” -EATER

Continuing to expand his influence, 5x platinum certified artist for mega-smash “Caroline” recently appeared on HBO’s Insecure this month. Artists who move culture forward create their own. Aminé’s debut LP, “Good For You” did just that for Portland’s music scene, hip-hop and the culture at large — buoyed by his 5x platinum RIAA certified breakout smash “Caroline,” “REDMERCEDES,” and “Wedding Crashers” feat. Offset. The album which displayed mosaic influence from his parents’ Ethiopian heritage to trailblazers like Kanye West and André 3000, made an instantly indelible impact — scoring a RIAA gold certification, millions of singles streams, Spotify #1s, and 21 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs Chart, peaking at #11. Aminé further solidified himself as a force of nature between explosive festival sets (Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza) and show-stopping late nights (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers). Maintaining this momentum, while owning his subdued profile and preference for an AirBNB wilderness cabin over a posh studio for recording, Aminé released his self-described 2018 EP/LP/MIXTAPE/ALBUM “ONEPOINTFIVE” which you can listen to here.

OCASO 2020

“Be prepared to be teleported into a quantum realm of whimsicality.”360 MAGAZINE

By Vaughn Lowery × Sam Berman

At the peak of the year, music, beats and dancing brought together a crowd of 10,000 attendees to Costa Rica for 2020’s Ocaso Underground Music Festival – the world’s largest rave in the jungle. Even the leatherback turtles, howling monkeys and crocodiles were head bobbing.

The Ocaso Underground Music Festival, which engaged on January 9th – 13th, united travelers, ticos and seasoned ravers alike to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, off the coast of the Pacific Ocean for five days of electronic music bliss. The jubilee was established by founder Devin Ellis in 2018; and it just culminated its fourth semester, with plans to return in January 2021, proving a successful run for one of the most emerging EDM festivals on the planet. 

What makes this carnival so sui generis, aside from a stellar bill of DJs including Maceo Plex, Äme, Doc Martin, Justin Martin, Magdalena, Shiba San, Seth Troxler and Artba, might just be the visually striking and lushful setting of CR. The grounds, known as the Lesenda Retreat, centers around a trilithic stage composed of metal trusses for performers, complete with a towering geometric visual screen synchronized to the music, pulsating lasers, fog machines, pyrotechnics and go-go dancers. Apart from hypnotizing technical components conjured up by architectural wizards, the surrounding landscape and warm weather provided a tranquil atmosphere to enjoy the fiesta in, enhanced by art installations sprinkled throughout, providing a truly remarkable habitat. 

Let’s talk about the sound! Imagine being at the On The Run II tour with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, state-of-the-art subwoofers and tweeters pinging throughout the venue, delivering clean and crisp vibrant instrumentation. Of course, this added fan excitement to every set.

Viewers were able to use tokens for transportation, food and drinks, providing added security from petty theft and loose cash. Overall safety was key with tons of guards at every entrance alongside of roaming escorts. We all wore sparkly color-coded wristbands to identify our level of participation – GA vs VIP. Staff members wore official reflective tanks and shirts to be easily accessible.

A short 15 minute-bus drive on a vintage yellow school bus brought participants to the festivities. Guests were offered an assortment of carte du jour options to replenish their prance-exhausted bodies with a number of locally and globally known chefs preparing flatbread pizzas, gyros, keto bowls, tacos as well as protein shakes.

Saturday was the most distinctive night of the event, with people from all over the globe, dressed in their most eye-catching ensembles, echoing the avant-garde fashion of other fairs such as EDC, Ultra, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella. Ocaso brought a parade of colors infused with futuristic and organic elements blended seamlessly into garbs straight out of an alien planet, welcoming and embracing all. 

The festival wrapped with a pool party at base camp, the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas. After a five-day outer body experience of infectious dance music, a sort of culinary delights, cozy lodging options, and the beautiful backdrop of the rugged rainforested, Central America, this is one masquerade which many should add to their list. 

Missed out on the fun this year? Don’t fret, as the festival plans to return the weekend of January 7-11, 2021. Ticketing packages from this past year ranged from $19.00 to $59.00 for single day passes, a two-day Friday and Saturday pass for $89.00 and a 5-day-full-weekend pass for $119.00, a great deal for those who can’t get enough from just one night. So ravers, start planning your next vacation, because this is an experience any party animal should dive into. 

For additional information visit Ocaso Festival.

Local Guide

Besides the #RaveInTheJungle, The city of Tamarindo itself possesses a plethora of thrilling activities: ziplining, horseback rides on volcanic trails; ATV tours; surfing and dolphin-watching sailing tours.

If you are seeking additional dining/nightlife options outside of the fête, be sure to check out the following:

Pacifico Club (http://www.pacifico-costarica.com/beach-club/), Sharky’s Bar (http://sharkysbars.com/), Long Board BBQ, Chinese Food (directly across from Vista Villas) and Bamboo Sushi Club.

Just down the road was the luxurious Tamarindo Diria hotel, which features a lobby side pool/hot tub, an array of cabanas with an outside bar/dining deck as well as private beach access to make any jovial attendants experience an unforgettable rave-cation.
