MANUEL TURIZO PRESENTS “DOPAMINA” 

FEATURING LEGENDARY COLLABORATIONS, INFECTIOUS TRACKS, 

AND ALL THE GOOD VIBES

Latin superstar Manuel Turizo is celebrating the launch of his sophomore studio album Dopamina. STREAM DOPAMINA HERE.

Under the wing of La Industria INC record label, Manuel Turizo released this extraordinary project created for his fans, to make them express and feel all of their emotions and increase their dopamine (Dopamina) levels. 

“Your brain releases dopamine when you’re feeling pleasure, when you’re doing things you like, when you’re with the person you love, when you’re eating something you enjoy, or watching something entertaining. So, this album is that, a dopamine release because it’s going to make you feel that good!” Manuel Turizo said.

“This is not an album to enjoy one or two songs, we took the time to work with detail and passion on each song to make them stand out and have the potential of becoming singles. Dopamina is an album to listen to from the beginning to end,” he added. 

Dopamina shows Manuel Turizo’s clear artistic maturity and musical evolution. While his first album ADN served as his introduction to the music industry, Dopamina will demonstrate his versatility in singing rhythms such as reggae, ballads, and, of course, everything that falls under the urban genre umbrella. Manuel himself, together with his brother Julián Turizo worked first-hand in the writing and production of the majority of the tracks, making this a very personal project.

The album includes the already-hits Quiéreme Mientras Se Pueda (51 million YouTube views), La Nota featuring Rauw Alejandro and Myke Towers (122 million views), Mala Costumbre featuring legendary duo Wisin y Yandel (37 million views), and the newly-released as of yesterday, Amor En Coma featuring Maluma. Other notable collaborations include El Alfa and will.i.am, Farruko, Dalex, Justin Quiles, and Jay Wheeler and Miky Woodz, making up 13 unique tracks that are going to take you to another level.

In his 4 years of musical career, Manuel Turizo has managed to win the hearts of millions of fans from his native Colombia to Latin America and the United States. With more than 11 million followers on Instagram, and over 20 million monthly listeners on Spotify, he continues to cement his place in Latin music lovers’s hearts. 

Announcing Manuel Turizo USA Tour 2021

Additionally, the singer shares his excitement by announcing a new concert tour.  This time, it will take place in the United States with more than 20 confirmed dates. It will be passing through cities such as Chicago, El Paso, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, and Houston.

Sam Johnson – Nineteen

Following on from the soaring success of his recent single ‘Changes’, which landed in Spotify editorial playlists such as ‘Pop Brandneu’, ‘Easy’, ‘Pop Relax’ and ‘New Pop UK’, was played on Apple Music’s Radio Show ‘New Music Daily Deutschland mit Aisha’, and highlighted in Billboard’s 10 Cool Pop Songs feature, British singer and songwriter Sam Johnson continues to build momentum for his forthcoming EP ‘Are We There Yet?’ with the release of his latest stunning single ‘Nineteen’ out November 20th.

LISTEN TO ‘NINETEEN’ HERE
WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE

Continuing the bold and thunderous sound that has become a theme of his latest offerings, ‘Nineteen’ sees Sam combine warm and wistful aesthetics with a truly anthemic production. Channeling his humble roots as a gifted acoustic singer-songwriter, the track quickly shifts gears and delivers a bright and euphoric texture that embodies the multifaceted feel that Sam Johnson has injected into all of his material to date.

Speaking about his new single, he said, “This one is a little more direct than the others. No hidden meaning here. It’s a very literal and biographical throwback to my fairly hedonistic last few years of school. My friends and I seemed far more focused on smoking high grade than we did on getting high grades and it certainly showed in our A level results. Still, they were some of the best days of my life, and this is a regret free ode to them. Interestingly though, I was born in 1995, and certainly not taking my final exams that year. The opening line ‘flash back to ninety-five’ can therefore be seen as a rare example on the EP where I gave myself artistic license to not be entirely honest, but instead allow some ambiguity because I liked the way the line sounded.”

‘Nineteen’ follows up the success of his previously shared singles ‘Changes’, ‘The Kids Are Alright’, the latter of which landed on Spotify editorial playlists Fresh & Chill, Pop Right Now and New Music Friday in the UK, Germany and Switzerland; Apple Music’s New Music Daily in eleven countries, and named Record Of The Week on BBC Radio Shropshire, and its follow-up ‘Peter Pan’, which found a home on Spotify’s Easy playlist.

Taken from Sam’s forthcoming EP ‘Are We There Yet?’ which is set for a January 2021 release, his latest collection is set to see him grow more as an artist and a human being throughout. “I create characters influenced by what I see around me,” he says. “A lot of the lyrics are touchstones of my childhood, and where I grew up… and the people that I grew up around.”

In recent weeks Sam Johnson was announced as a member of the Ivors Academy Youth Council. The newly formed Youth Council is made up of sixteen young creators from the Academy’s Youth Network, acting as an advisory group, which will form a central role in shaping the future of the Academy. The Academy’s Youth Network, which was established last autumn, is a growing and connected community of young creators and a hub of partnerships with Universities, Colleges and other non-academic organizations. The Network aims to empower and educate young songwriters and composers of all genres, and provide a platform at the Academy to voice views on music industry issues.

A driven and relentlessly ambitious artist, Sam Johnson’s story also owes a debt to chance. Fate dealt him an unusual card when Kevin Shields – My Bloody Valentine auteur – crossed his path, taking the fledgling talent into the studio for the very first time. “That was a real moment for me… that developed my backbone. It made me want to have that element of legacy. And he made me realize that it could be done.”

A country boy lost in the big city, Sam’s music has taken him from a rural setting to the London metropolis, but he’s driven by an extraordinary sense of purpose. ‘Are We There Yet?’ is a tightly bound EP, one where each passage speaks to the next. Overseen by My Riot at RAK Studios, the production is left deliberately raw, almost unfinished, so that the songs “could breathe, without over-cluttering it too much”.

Netflix Co-CEO on Ads

by Justin Lyons

Netflix co-founder and co-CEO Reed Hastings sat down with Variety recently to discuss his new book and everything regarding Netflix. From business strategies to hiring strategies to creative strategies, Hastings seemed to be quite open about his ideas for the streaming service.

One of the biggest questions everyone seems to have about Netflix revolves around its revenue strategy. The home of shows like “Stranger Things,” “Orange is the New Black,” “House of Cards” and other award-winning, binge-inducing shows has been ad-free since its inception.

Hastings said the decision to rely entirely on a subscription model is more of a judgement call than a strict rule for Netflix.

“You know, advertising looks easy until you get in it. Then you realize you have to rip that revenue away from other places because the total ad market isn’t growing, and in fact right now it’s shrinking,” Hastings told Variety.

Hastings went on to say there’s more opportunity for growth in the consumer market than there is in the advertising business, also citing 20 years of success to back his point.

A 2019 report from eMarketer said Google, Facebook and Amazon received upwards of two-thirds of advertising dollars in the United States, so it would make sense to believe the room for growth in advertising is limited.

The New York Times reported in April that Netflix gained nearly 16 million subscribers early in the year, pushing the total number of subscribers to more than 182 million.

Hastings also touched on production during COVID-19’s shutdown, saying Netflix was able to shoot some originals, like the fourth season of “The Crown,” before shutting down production. He added that Netflix is currently producing in Europe and Asia.

While producing in Europe and Asia is more practical than producing in the United States right now, it also goes along with goals Hastings has for Netflix.

He said he wants Netflix to become a first-class developer all around the world, not just in Hollywood. Hastings said shows like “Dark,” from Germany, and “La Casa de Papel,” from Spain, have aided that movement.

On the future of Netflix, Hastings said, “What’s next is becoming a great Turkish developer of content, becoming a great Egyptian developer of content and sharing that with the world.”

He closed the interview with a discussion about other streaming platforms. Hastings compared Netflix to Starbucks, serving a specific product, while Amazon is more of a Walmart, serving every need.

With the number of streaming services growing exponentially, it might be easy to assume doom for the original streaming platforms. Even with Disney+ reaching 60 million subscribers, Hastings isn’t worried, calling the streaming industry a “healthy situation.”

“Because you’ll continue to push each other to innovate and entertain people. It’s only in the old communist states of the 1960s when you’d have a single network. No one wants to create that,” Hastings said.

A rising tide lifts all boats, right? There is no doubt that Netflix remains king of the streaming industry, and we can probably assume we’re safe from ads on Netflix for now. That, along with the possible development of more content from other countries and cultures, makes it an exciting time to be a Netflix subscriber.

For now, we’ll continue to rely on Netflix’s ad-free experience while studios that rely on theatrical releases are slowed down.

Oliver Malcolm The Machine

Consistently bringing his one-man-production skills to create a one of a kind soundscape, rising act Oliver Malcolm is back with his next track, “The Machine.” This new cut is inspired by Oliver’s love for The Clash as well as the gloomy grey atmosphere of his hometown in London, U.K. The track first premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Indie Show with Jack Saunders, who delved deep into the meaning behind the track. Oliver tells the radio host that the lyrics revolt against the social institutions that prioritize material and financial gain above all else, transforming their subjects into simple cogs in “The Machine.” Fast becoming known for his eclectic visual pairings to his songs, Oliver will release a video for the track in a couple of weeks.

The Machine” follows tracks “Helen,” “Kevin,” and debut single “Switched Up” — all with its own genre-blending sounds that showcases the breadth and creativity the young artist has and will be employing when crafting his debut project, later this fall.

Praise for Oliver Malcolm:

“Oliver Malcolm is the dynamic rising star ready kick up a storm with his diverse, new punk-indebted EP” — NME

“With its deep bassline and bluesy melodies alchemizing jazz and pop influences, he crafts an almost tangible atmosphere of melancholy [in “Helen”] as pleas to a woman echo throughout” — Pigeons & Planes, Best New Artist

“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan…Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist

“Oliver Malcolm’s ‘Switched Up’ Is Intoxicating… new single ‘Switched Up’ is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH

“A lot of artists claim genre-blending style, but Malcolm’s is altogether impossible to define. Is it alt-blues? Dark electro-pop? Folk-hip-hop? Does it matter?” — TIME Magazine, Best New Song

“The hip-hop producer-turned-twisted musical anarchist is making songs for nobody but himself. You’ll love them anyway.” — i-D Magazine

About Oliver Malcolm

Oliver Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic and taught himself how to produce – working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe and more. Now twenty, Oliver has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing and mastering, Oliver’s sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.

MEREDITH GRACE DABNEY

16-Year-Old Filmmaker & Actress Meredith Grace Dabney Releases Award-Winning Short HERE TODAY

Out now via Astrabeta Creations

Click [HERE] to watch

Filmmaker and actress Meredith Grace Dabney release her award-winning short film HERE TODAY which chronicles the life of a high school girl struggling to find her identity with a new group of friends. The film comes directly from the filmmaker’s production company Astrabeta Creations in association with Arvold Productions and Point Nine Films.

This universally autobiographical tale, written by the young filmmaker is a reminder of vulnerability, life’s connections, and most importantly that words and actions, however small, affect everyone and everything.

Meredith shares: “It is my hope that HERE TODAY will speak as a voice of encouragement and love to others as it does to me, and will educate on the topics of suicide, anxiety, depression, mental health, and self-worth. My creative mission in bringing this film to life has been to reinforce the crucial thought that “Your PRESENCE matters.” The process of making this film has served as both a personal growth journey and a reminder that every single action, word, and encounter has an everlasting impact and truly does matter. My hope is that this film will be a stepping stone to increased conversations about sensitive topics as well as a vehicle for bringing to light universal internal struggles.”

HERE TODAY, directed by Erica Arvold and written by Meredith, serves as a reminder that wherever you may be on your journey in life, YOU are valid and important.

Meredith uses her voice as a platform for herself and others who may be in a dark place. In conjunction with the film, Meredith has initiated a social media campaign “You Okay? Ask Someone Today!” The campaign is a way to challenge others to reach out to 3 individuals every day via text, mail, email, phone, or other forms of communication to simply ask, “You Okay?” (one person may be ourselves!). The campaign, which was initiated as part of Mental Health Awareness Month, will be going on through Summer and is also reflected in some very cool merchandise with the same “You Okay” message. Dabney says, “I want to change the world through kindness, compassion, and connectedness, and this way people can have a reminder to reach out to others by wearing it for all to see!”
