JAXX – APPAREL

21-year-old artist Jaxx releases his new single “Apparel” featuring Tuxx. Filled with a hypnotic beat and an energetic dynamic, “Apparel” lets Jaxx’s talents shine through. Listen to “Apparel,” produced by Taz Taylor, Rio Leyva and FRANKIEONTHEGUITARHERE and watch the music video, directed by Daniel Jordan KHERE

Earlier in the year, Jaxx released his single “Too Often,” an impressive new single laced with braggadocio, slurred melodies, and a free sense of adventure. The single received early support from Billboard on Fresh Finds and Teen Vogue on Best New Music.  He followed the release with his second single “Autumn” which received support from Billboard again as well as Lyrical Lemonade, Daily Chiefers and others. 

About Jaxx:

Playful and confident, Jaxx combines expressive melodies and free associative flexes to deliver otherworldly anthems for dream chasers. The 21-year-old artist flashes his gifts on “Too Often,” a glittering new single laced with braggadocio, slurred melodies, and a free-wheeling sense of adventure. Modern, experimental, and casually resolute, the tracks reflect the impulses of an artist who picked up a rap career on a whim — which is pretty much what happened. 

Born and raised in Arizona, Jaxx was holding down a potential career as a pro skateboarder before he ever considered music. By Jaxx’s late teens, his older brother was making music of his own, and after seeing him perform, Jaxx found a new calling. After recording his first songs on an iPhone in a church parking lot, he got his first dose of attention when he released “Ride With Me,” a melodic rumination on loyalty. After the track collected over 100K streams, Jaxx built his momentum with subsequent singles like “Road 2 Nowhere” and “Like This!” After spending time in the studio with Internet Money, Jaxx unloaded “Domino,” an ethereal 2021 single that led to more momentum and the chance to level up like never before. 

Looking ahead, Jaxx wants the accoutrements of music superstardom. He also wants to be a source of relief for fans, a group that continues to multiply. Jaxx has the opportunity to build his community by hitting the studio with new ideas and a belief that his best work is ahead of him. “Since I’ve been making music, every song keeps getting better,” he shares. “I’m more excited to put out new music than I’ve ever been.”

Mallrat – Tour

Multi-faceted artist and producer Mallrat announces her 2022 World Tour to take her brand new, critically acclaimed debut record, Butterfly Blue on the road, with headline shows and festivals across Europe, the UK, North America and Australia. The highly anticipated album was released on May 13th to praise from NPR, Teen Vogue, NME, PAPER, MTV and more, and marks a triumphant debut from Mallrat, solidifying her reputation as a master of clever, timeless pop.

Hot off the heels of an opening stint for Conan Gray in the UK and Europe, the new tour will see Mallrat playing new tracks from the album such as “To You,” which comes fresh off the back of the year’s most unexpected collaboration, “Surprise Me (feat. Azealia Banks),” and its much loved predecessors “Your Love,” “Teeth” and “Rockstar.”

Sweeping across vast, airy production, Butterfly Blue is often surprising, with samples and sounds tucked under the surface: chopped-up Gangsta Pat bars, a flipped recording of a children’s choir performing Lisztomania, and more. Distorted effects were recorded from discarded children’s toys – a sonic gift from producer Clams Casino. Layered like an instrument all their own, her signature breathy vocals are more assured than ever. 

Butterfly Blue is available at all digital retailers HERE.

Kendall Jenner × Messika

Kendall Jenner and Messika reunite in a new solar inspired campaign signalling signs of freedom.

Kendall Jenner and Valérie Messika met in the South of France to shoot the Maison’s new campaign by Chris Colls.

Valérie Messika has always loved the dynamism of fashion. Her jewels bear witness to this every season; inspiring new styles thanks to the easy-to-wear diamond, which is ever more modern and innovative. True to her instinct to find a personality and figure who is best representative of the Messika woman, the designer had set her sights on Kendall Jenner as her new muse, who infuses the new campaign and collections with an unparalleled energy and radiance.

Kendall Jenner’s modelling career began at the age of 14, when appearing on the cover of Teen Vogue in 2010. Following which, she was almost immediately shot to stardom as one of the most sought after faces across the most cutting-edge catwalks. Dubbed as the “fashion icon of the decade” in 2017, Kendall remains in demand by all the leading fashion houses. In her element with Messika jewelry, that she wears both for runway shows as well as in her private life, the model embodies the Messika woman through her effortless sensibilities, her unadulterated freedom, and her modernity.

The photographs merge Kendal Jenner’s elegant figure with the natural infinite effect of the landscape. Capturing the immensity of the sea joining the sky, each image is a manifesto of freedom. That of a young woman in an iridescent blue lamé swimsuit or jacket taking a break in the clear water or running across crisp white sand. Whatever her choice, her attitude reflects her brilliance. Between athleisure and performance, her outfits have the energy of a woman well in her life, in her time and of the moment, whose body and mind are in perfect harmony. In control of her own destiny, she represents today’s alpha woman.

To capture the essence of this liberated spirit, Australian photographer Chris Colls combines the aesthetics of a fashion photograph with moving elements for a multi-degree approach, like Messika jewelry, reflective of dual femininity. Accumulations of jewels stacked across the fingers, wrists, decolletage and neck dance in reflections of sunlight and give rhythm to the look, while Kendall, with her eyes fixed on the lens, is alluring and magnetic.

Through this campaign, the Maison reconfirms its bond with women. Ensuring fluidity in the ability to live every moment as decided, Messika jewelry is easy to wear and to combine. Through every piece, a sole ambition is shared: to encourage confidence in feeling ever free.

“I wanted to illustrate a subtle alliance between grace and strength and capture an image of an alpha woman with a mysterious and hypnotic aura; and Kendall perfectly embodied that for me.” – Valérie Messika

“I was very happy to be chosen by Messika for its new campaign because I really like the spirit of this brand which merges glamour and Parisian chic in its jewelry. The shoot went very smoothly: I immediately identified with this young woman full of energy who lives her life as she has decided.” – Kendall Jenner

New Cravity Album

K-Pop group CRAVITY are ready to take their next leap forward with the release of CRAVITY 1ST ALBUM PART 2 [LIBERTY : IN OUR COSMOS]. Referred to as “ones to watch” by Forbes, the members of CRAVITY are ready to reach new heights with this album by exploring various musical genres from one track to the next. Previously taking on a more powerful image with past releases, [LIBERTY : IN OUR COSMOS] is showcasing a more youthful side to the group. Their defiant new image, illustrated in their music video and album, implies that the boys have finally become free after overcoming their inner worries and struggles. The title of this album also suggests that the members of  CRAVITY have become one, and have found hope through finding stars in the cosmos, a place where they feel the happiest and most liberated. Overall, it’s a story that is completed by forming solidarity with the fans whom they were destined to meet.

Lead track “Adrenaline” blends four genres of funk, future house, trap, and moombahton; creating a fresh sound from the nine members, longing for freedom. This track compares one’s hopeful existence, the central theme of this album, to “adrenaline,” and tells a story of “being addicted to you.” Set in a school, the music video portrays the free spirit of the members who have found hope in despair. This is showcased through a festival scene, where the boys can finally be free from the oppression of school and their uniforms. A blast of excitement, disordered dreams, and reality that the boys face during their growth are weaved together as a unique visual under the keyword: “adrenaline.”

Consisting of 8 tracks; rappers of the group, Serim and Allen, contributed to writing for “Adrenaline,” “POW!” and “Outro : In Our Cosmos.” Used as a metaphor, “Chandelier” is meant to portray the message that a bright future lies ahead of the members. The lyrics for “FLIP THE  FRAME” convey the message of the members’ wish to explore the new world by breaking the rules and flipping the frame. “Late Night” tells the story of spending valuable time with friends who cheer and support each other. While “Maybe Baby” emotes nerves and uncertainty one may feel during the early stages of love.

CRAVITY’s debut album, released in April 2020, SEASON1. [HIDEOUT: REMEMBER WHO WE ARE] caused a wave of intrigue and excitement here in the states, with mentions in PAPER Magazine, Access, iHeart, J-14, MTV News, Earmilk, Teen Vogue, and Rolling Stone. The latter of which referred to their title track as “An anthemic track from the K-pop rookies that combines 808-style riffs with the melodic sensibilities of early-2000s boybands (extended dance break included).”

“Though the group is still up-and-coming and developing their sound, they have begun to refine their artistry and make their mark on the industry. Their work on ‘Gas Pedal’ proves just that, and more,” MTV said. 

About Cravity

Since their debut on April 14th 2020, CRAVITY have marked their relentless movement, sweeping rookie of the year awards at various music awards ceremonies in Korea. Even with only two albums under their belt at the time, their achievements were more than enough to show their presence in the K-Pop scene. CRAVITY received the name “super rookie,” due to the success of their debut album, which hit No. 1 on U.S. iTunes Top K-Pop Albums chart. Additionally, the group made a splash on social media shortly after their first album, debuting at No. 12 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart; making them the fifth-fastest South Korean group to enter Social 50.The inspiration behind the name, CRAVITY, came to fruition through a combination of “creativity” and “gravity.” The band consists of nine members,: Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin.

Normani inside 360 MAGAZINE for her fair song

Normani – Fair

Multi-platinum selling, chart topping recording artist Normani returns with the highly anticipated new single, “Fair”. On the HARV-produced track, bass pulsates like a heartbeat between soft keys as her voice echoes with raw feeling. Volleying between high register harmonies and an emotionally charged refrain, she gets confessional on the chorus, “Is it fair that you moved on, ’cause I swear that I haven’t.” “Fair” was co-written by Normani, Abby Keen, Bernard “HARV” Harvey and Felisha King Harvey.

Speaking about the new song, Normani reveals, “This song really captures me in one of my most vulnerable moments. Sharing this record makes me uncomfortable because you have never really seen me in this light. Definitely aware that you might feel like you don’t know much about me but that’s only because it’s what makes me feel protected. I am really forcing myself to let go here. This is huge for me and hopefully this piece of art resonates. Love is beautiful yet so so terrifying. I adore you guys to the moon and back.”

“Fair” is out everywhere now. Listen HERE.

About SAFE

In 2016, the then 18-year-old SAFE became Toronto’s secret weapon, working closely with Drake and Oliver El-Khatib. SAFE came up through the Halal Gang collective, consisting of Mustafa The Poet, Puffy L’z and Smoke Dawg. On June 30, 2018, Smoke Dawg was killed, sending the city into a state of shocked mourning. “He was the voice of the streets,” mentioned SAFE in an interview with Vice. After the tragic loss, SAFE took some time to himself and relocated to New York. Since then, the city of Toronto has been waiting to hear what’s next. In 2019, he released “Paid In Full” featuring Playboi Carti. Pitchfork reviewed the single, stating “his light and buttery melody shines over the gloomy instrumental.” Now in 2022, SAFE is looking to elevate. The impact he made in Toronto back in 2016 still remains and he is looking to spread that impact to the rest of the world.

Japanese Breakfast

Tuesday, January 18, indie pop act Japanese Breakfast performed “Slide Tackle,” a track from their GRAMMY-nominated album, Jubilee, on The Late Show with James Corden. Michelle Zauner, applauded founder, did a ‘Bar Chat interview where she talked about these recent nominations and more. Watch Japanese Breakfast’s performance on The Late Show with James Corden HERE.

Jubilee released last June as one of the years leading, critically acclaimed albums. The album stole spots on Best Of lists for 2021 from Rolling Stone, People Magazine, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, NPR, Wall Street Journal, The Ringer, SPIN, Esquire, Vulture, The AV Club, Paste, Cosmopolitan, UPROXX, Consequence of Sound, Slant and Hypebeast. The album gained so much attention that it was even voted the #1 album of the year on NPR’s Listener’s Poll and #1 on UPROXX’s Critics Poll.

If that wasn’t enough success for one year, Zauner, too, published her New York Times Best Seller, Crying in H Mart, which is now being reworked for MGM’s Orion Pictures. The book is a moving memoir that captures Zauner’s experiences growing up Korean American, the struggles she went through with the death of her mother and how she navigated discovering her own identity.

About Michelle Zauner

The Korean American musician and author Michelle Zauner is renowned for her sonic demeanor. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Zauner grew up in Eugene, Oregon for most of her adolescence. Zauner took to music instantly, beginning to learn to play the piano at 5, later moving to the guitar at age 15. Her mother’s passing in 2014 lead to her starting Japanese Breakfast. She tells Teen Vogue, “I moved back to Oregon to care for her, and I kind of put the band on indefinite hiatus. Unfortunately, she passed away, and while I was in Oregon, helping take care of the house and being a support system for my dad, the only way that I could have something for myself was if I made my own record. So I kind of carved out some time to do that.” Japanese Breakfast’s debut came in 2016 with the hit album Psychopomp. Through the album, Zauner revealed the intense period that followed her mother’s death. Zauner’s unique perspective amongst mainstream pop music sets her apart from other artists, and she’s one you’ll want to take a listen to.
