Marthe Vangman via 360 Magazine

Marthe Vangman

Marthe Vangman is an entertainment industry noisemaker that has managed talent across several verticals at a global scale. 360 Magazine first spotted Marthe when she built out a music event series with the company Studiotime, where Vangman managed all their musical talent relations and produced the events. The series grew to be known as Studiotime Sessions and was a massive success in Los Angeles featuring iconic studios like The Village. Studiotime founder Michael Williams and Vangman decided to take Studiotime Sessions international, which is where she discovered the gap in talent collaborations between her home country of Scandinavia and the United States. 

Shortly after, the trailblazer started working with Invisible Narratives, an entertainment company founded by Adam Goodman and Michael Bay, where she would run the talent projects. Vangman has managed projects with talent such as Deadmau5, Emma Norton, BWA Jack, Tatyana Joseph, Jian Hao Tan, etc. along with the talent for the award winning streaming show “Pride Eve” and assisted with talent for HBO Max’s “Camp Friends”. 

Due to her international background, Vangman has been able to get a broad insight into how brands and influencers collaborate in both the US and Scandinavia, and how different the two countries operate business-wise. Sweden, Norway and Denmark, are trend-based countries with small populations. There’s a few core influencers that have a cult following in each region, and they are the ones that start the trends that everyone then follows. In the US, it’s a bit different because influencers usually are not able to influence a whole population, instead they have their niche audiences that follow them because they share the same interest or simply for entertainment. 

By understanding the different audiences, Vangman saw an opportunity to start building a bridge between the two worlds, so that influencers and brands could collaborate easier and expand beyond their borders.

Vangman explains, “The benefits for brands to expand in Scandinavia is that you can get acknowledgement really fast if you collaborate with the right influencers, meaning the ones that are highly respected by the main public and the ones that start the trends. And the benefits for brands to expand in the US is that they can target really niche audiences that would become consumers of their brand through the right influencers. This doesn’t only apply to influencers and brands, it also applies to musicians and other creators. For musicians, if you collaborate with the biggest Scandinavian influencers and get them to use your music in their TikTok or vlogs, you can become viral pretty fast.”

Most recently, Marthe also started working with Gustaf Toresson, a Swedish entrepreneur, media profile and board member of Forbes 30 under 30 in Europe. Here she’s helping Gustaf launch a podcast that will feature successful creators and entrepreneurs that share intimate life stories. She will be working with Gustaf to secure talent and manage all guest relations. Gary Vee, Matilda Djerf, Lucy Edwards and ZHC are just a few of the names that will be a part of the podcast series.

Rita Ora released You Only Love Me via 360 Magazine.

Rita Ora – You Only Love Me

2023 marks the dawn of a new era for one of the most successful British female artists of the 21st century, Rita Ora, as she releases brand new single “You Only Love Me.” 

Co-written by Rita and produced by Lewis Thompson, “You Only Love Me” is inspired by her personal experience of feeling vulnerable at the very start of her romantic journey. Underpinned by love and passion, the song opens with a voice memo from Oscar and BAFTA award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi“You Only Love Me” is an infectious, upbeat pop anthem guaranteed to soundtrack fans’ very own love stories and be a floor filler for months to come.

Rita says: “With ‘You Only Love Me’ and my upcoming album, I wanted to capture the vulnerability I’ve experienced as I opened myself up to love and entered a new phase of life. Learning to let go of the past to make way for new experiences is a deeply personal process, and one I felt compelled to document through my music – the journey was not always easy, but I’ve come out of it stronger and filled with more love than I ever thought possible.”

“You Only Love Me” is the first track to be lifted from the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter’s highly anticipated upcoming album – a deeply personal body of work intrinsically linked to a new chapter in Ora’s life and career. It is also Rita’s first release since inking a partnership with BMG, which will see her own all her future master recordings and enjoy artistic control in a way that she hasn’t had previously. Next Wednesday, 1st February, Rita will make her debut performance of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The accompanying music video for “You Only Love Me, directed by acclaimed creative Charlie Sarsfield and shot in the LA suburbs, premiered globally on MTV today and is one of Rita’s favourites made to date. Depicting a fictional wedding through the lens of a Stepford Housewives meetsAlice in Wonderland style narrative, it features hyperreal scenes of a bride’s big day turned tumultuously upside-down, (with overzealous “badmaids,” the venue going up in flames and more), and cameos from well-wishers Kristen StewartLindsay LohanJodie Turner-Smith, Chelsea Handler, Addison Rae, cake delivery boy Alexander Stewart and fairy godmother Sharon Stone.

Rita Ora’s multi-platinum music career has won her commercial and critical acclaim with 13 UK Top 10 singles and four UK Number One singles. She holds the record for the most UK Top 10 singles by a British female artist. In the US alone, Rita’s acclaimed singles and star-studded collaborations have earned her a #3 Billboard Hot 100 song, 7 Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, 5 of which reached #1, and 6 Top 20 singles on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart.

RITA ORA’S “YOU ONLY LOVE ME” IS AVAILABLE ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS HERE.

Nio Garcia Yeska is out now via 360 MAGAZINE.

Nio Garcia – Yeska

Nio Garcia, the voice of global hits such as “La Jeepeta,” “Te Boté,” and “AM Remix,” returns to the artistic sphere after a year of legal battles over his musical career as a direct consequence of his manager Flow La Movie’s tragic death. Nio Garcia is eager to reconnect with his fans and begins by introducing the song “Yeska,” which is now available on all digital platforms.

“Yeska,” produced by multi-platinum producer, “Yannc Full Harmony,” channels Nio’s dance roots as he performs this rhythmic Reggaeton song, accompanied by a music video, filmed in Miami and directed by Kevin Quiles.

The song is sensual and catchy, with all the elements that have characterized Nio Garcia’s powerful and successful artistic career. The song’s chorus has a Jowell & Randy sample from a popular 2013 song that was chosen carefully to represent the true essence of Puertorican Reggaeton.

“I thought this moment would never come. I was so excited to release new music and to share it with my fans, I’m ready for this new chapter of my artistic career to begin,” the singer said.

After Flow La Movie’s tragic death, Nio was not able to release music because of a fierce inheritance battle amongst family members, but now everything has been resolved and Nio can continue to work freely with his GLAD Empire team.

Natanael Cano released Morritas via 360 MAGAZINE.

NATANEAL CANO – MORRITAS

“MORRITAS” Available Here 

Today, one of the music industry’s most prominent corridos superstars, Natanael Cano, released a new single titled “Morritas.” The song and its official music video are now available to stream on all digital platforms. Cano and “Morritas” covered Apple Music’s NEW MUSIC DAILY.

Over the captivating strum of a guitar and melancholic melodies, Natanael Cano weaves a story from his perspective on how a man and woman love on “Morritas.” Inspired by the thought that morritas (women) are made for love and a man leans more into having flow, Cano puts his dynamic vocalization on display through his heartfelt verses while fusing them with the raw corridos sound.

In a split screen music video produced by Toroh Films, “Morritas” follows Natanael Cano and his leading female protagonist through their own lens as they live out parallel versions of the same night. On one hand, the female protagonist is distraught throughout the night as she ponders her partner’s whereabouts, but on the other hand, Cano enjoys his night surrounded by different women. Comparing both perspectives of their relationship on the eventful night, the video seamlessly captures the essence and meaning behind “Morritas” – proving to be the perfect visual component for the song.

“Morritas” follows in the footsteps of Cano’s latest release, “AMG,” alongside Gabito Ballesteros and Peso Pluma. Since its release, the track has obtained over 10 million views on YouTube. Last month, Cano released “Y Si Me Miran,” which sees the multi-platinum artist recruit one of his very own artists signed to his label CT, Gabito Ballesteros and Luis R Conriquez, to come together in an exciting and fresh corrido belico tumbado.

Enjoying a successful and noteworthy year, Cano was recently signed to top modeling agency IMG models and has future projects in the works with the company. Earlier in the year, Cano made his Coachella debut along with unforgettable performances at the hottest festivals of Pal NorteBaja Beach Fest, and more recently, Rumbazo Festival. Adding to his growing list of accomplishments, the Regional Mexican superstar released his latest album, NATAKONG – the indisputable evidence of the evolution and versatility of Natanael Cano, who stays true to his Regional Mexican essence but also continues innovating within the genre. To date, NATAKONG has garnered over 266 million streams.

Currently, Natanael Cano is back in the studio working on new music for his new album expected to release early 2023.

Last year, Nnena showcased her range and versatility on her EP  …Just Cause. The four-track EP features Childish MajorDaVionne and WESTSIDE BOOGIE – the latter on the standout track “Come Again.” This new project follows the release of her debut EP Bipolar AF, the first release from the partnership between Loud Robot, the record label from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and RCA Records.

Additionally, Nnena was featured on Insecure: Music From The HBO Original Series, Season 5soundtrack with her memorable single “Fun,” which is currently the second highest streamed track on the album on Spotify.

An incredible writer, lyricist, rapper and vocalist, bursting with effusive energy and a massive personality, the Cleveland native, born Nnena Adigwe to Nigerian parents, credits some of her robust, descriptive storytelling impulses to her past screenwriting experience. Nnena began writing comedic sketches during college and that soon led to working on more full-fledged projects—the kinds of works that needed sound tracking. Rather than pay licensing fees, she tried her hand at making her own music.  Her music reflects her eclectic influences ranging from Otis Redding to Millie Jackson, from Queen Latifah to Miriam Makeba to Kendrick Lamar and especially  “Lauryn Hill, she molded me the most,” along with other neo-soul genre artists Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, as well from Drake, J. Cole, to Tiwa Savage.

Stormzy new album release via 360 magazine.

STORMZY – THIS IS WHAT I MEAN

British musician Stormzy has released his highly anticipated third album, This Is What I Mean.

Over the course of his expansive, heartfelt and defiantly sprawling new album, the BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning Stormzy has delivered an undeniable classic; effortlessly condensing any number of disparate styles and genres into music which bravely broaches any gap between modern Black British music, soul and hip-hop.

Executively Produced by British producer PRGRSHN, the album includes the top 10 single Hide & Seek; an emotive, soulful and ethereal offering and his latest release Firebabe; a beautifully delicate and deeply touching sound. An array of incredible musicians are also scattered throughout the record including vocal appearances from the likes of Sampha, Jacob Collier, Debbie and more, all of which are listed here.

A bold and courageous leap forward from his critically acclaimed previous two #1 records, ‘Gang Signs & Prayer and ‘Heavy Is The Head, this isn’t music simply for the pop charts but rather, an intimate and sincere love letter to music. He speaks on forgiving his absent father on the mellifluous ‘Please’ and refers to his challenges with paranoia, depression and self-doubt on penultimate track, ‘I Got My Smile Back’ – which also features a guest vocal from the incomparable India.Arie. It’s a record which showcases intensely personal and lyrical themes which in turn lay bare the vulnerabilities, regret, frailties, healing, joy and triumph in a manner and to an extent that reframes the notion of what rap artists traditionally might do and be.

In a letter posted to his social media pages last night, Stormzy wrote:

When Tyler, The Creator released the masterpiece that is ‘IGOR’ he shared a message with it and I wanted to do the same but I was hesitant. Mainly because I would love for my music to do all the talking but I thought I’d share this message anyway.

I do a lot of interviews and I forget that everything I say will be shared far and wide, which is probably naive of me. Things that I say in real life don’t feel the same when I see it in text. I feel like I overshare, which makes me feel naked at times. But I do it so that you guys can understand me a bit better and to give the art that I make some context. I’m never ever purposely trying to defy genres or go against the grain. I’m never tryna do what is unexpected of me or what is expected of me. If I rap for 7 minutes it’s because in my spirit, in that moment, I just really wanted to fucking rap. If I sing my heart out then it’s because my soul just absolutely had to. I love music. I love, love loveeeee music. I will rap for the rest of my life, I will sing for the rest of my life, I will make art for the rest of my life. And at no point will I ever do any of those things for any other reason than I JUST WANTED TO AND IT JUST FELT GOOD. I am not a calculated mastermind with the ability to gauge what kind of music to make and when I’ll make it, I literally just feel and then let it out. People been tryna box me in for years but I hope this chapter at least makes my biggest critic say “hey, he’s shit but he loves music and I guess he’s gonna do whatever he likes” lol

I pray you listen to this album in your own time, whenever you can. Listen to it properly with no distractions. I pray you listen to this album with an open heart and if you hate it after I promise to God I’m perfectly fine with that, I’m just grateful that you listened with openness. I pray that it moves you and captures your imagination. And I pray that someone, somewhere, feels it. 

This Is What I Mean.

And it’s what I’ve always meant. 🙏🏿

God bless. Stormz x”

The confidence which drove the album stemmed from a deeper and far more spiritual place than we have seen from Stormzy previously. For all the success and awards that he has accrued during his brief, meteoric career, the lockdown that ensued from the coronavirus pandemic gave him one commodity he’d long lacked: time. And thanks to his sense of accomplishment following Glastonbury he was, for the first time, in a position to make the most of it.

Much of the creative energy that shaped the album emerged from a Stormzy music camp in Osea Island – a remote island in the Essex estuary that’s only accessible via a Roman Causeway for four hours a day at low tide. Surrounded by leading-edge producers and musicians each and every morning they would eat and pray together and then spend the rest of the time driven to creative heights by each other’s talents.

When you hear about music camps they always sound intense and sombre,” says Stormzy. ““People saying: “We need to make an album.” “We need to make some hit records.” But this felt beautifully free. We’re all musicians but we weren’t always doing music. Some days we played football or walked around taking pictures. And the bi-product to that was very beautiful music. Because when you marry that ethos with world class musicians and the best producers, writers and artists in the world, and we’re in one space, that’s a recipe for something that no one can really imagine. You can’t even calculate what that’s going to come up with. And it came up with a big chunk of this album.

The net result is that while ‘This Is What I Mean sounds very much like Stormzy, it sounds like no Stormzy album you have ever heard before.

ABOUT DUKE DEUCE:

Crunk music was never dead, but Memphis rapper Duke Deuce has taken it upon himself to inspire a new generation to tear the club up. With inexhaustible energy and a booming voice, he’s reclaiming the ecstatic subgenre for his hometown, making music as grim as it is gleeful, and turning up all the while. Rapping about harrowing realities and detailing the benefits of his hard-won success, Duke has reached millions of fans who dig his music’s intensity as much as they do the playful dancing (a.k.a. gangsta walking) he does in his videos. With each release, Duke makes the case that crunk is more than music. It’s a way of life. He often bellows his signature ad-lib “WHAT THE FUCK?!” with the force of a wrecking ball or rather, the force of his own breakout single, “Crunk Ain’t Dead,” a high-octane anthem that earned a remix featuring a few legends of the genre: Lil Jon, Juicy J, and Project Pat. Since signing with Quality Control Music, Duke hasn’t let his foot off the gas, releasing Memphis Massacre [2018], Memphis Massacre 2 [2020], Duke Nukem [2021] and Crunkstar [2022], the latter of which cemented his signature ‘crunk-rock’ sound with breakout single “Just Say That,” powered by guest features from Glorilla and Quavo. Duke continues his worldwide takeover with the release of his latest mixtape offering Memphis Massacre III [Quality Control Music/Motown Records/Made Men Movement].
