By Krishan Narsinghani

360 Magazine joined LA’s westside hotspot, Lanea, for an afternoon of taco madness and handcrafted cocktails.

Voted “Best Mexican Food on the Westside” and “Best Cocktail Bar in LA”, Lanea Cocktail and Taco Bar spiced it up for National Taco Day making their to-go options that much easier to pick up to celebrate the delicious holiday. From 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 4th, Lanea hosted a Drive-Thru Taco Stand to raise funds for the Santa Monica Firefighters Relief Fund. Customers could walk up or purchase in advance to pick up there order at an easily accessible drive-thru, located in the adjacent alley. There, guests could indulge in their favorite street tacos made to order from Chef Petra herself. Lanea offered free tacos to all firefighters and frontline workers as a courtesy for all their dedication and hard work during these times. Furthermore, the restaurant offered one free taco (of your choice) with the purchase of any hand-crafted cocktail ($9). A portion of all sales from National Taco Day went to the Santa Monica Firefighters Relief Fund.

A number of items at the National Taco Day Drive-Thru were offered including their “Taco & Tequila Happy Hour,” menu which featured tacos starting at $2 and canned or frozen cocktails starting at $9 (regularly $13). Happy hour specials also include $3 Chips & Pico de Gallo, $6 Chips & Guacamole and $4 Consome, which is bone broth with chipotle chickpeas, onion, and cilantro. Pick up their new “Hot Stuff,” homemade 4 oz. hot sauces, Salsa Verde and Salsa Rojo retailing at only $4.99, as well as their premium Tequila and Mezcal “Jet Fuel” Flights. The flights come with a sipping cup copita, sal gusano and an orange slice for your enjoyment. View the full selection of flights here.

Located two blocks from the beach, Lanea is a spirit-driven cocktail bar and restaurant with an extensive variety of over 400 hand-selected mezcals and tequilas. Their authentic Mexican cuisine is prepared by Petra Zavaleta, who hails from Tepeaca, Puebla, and rose to foodie fame with her underground barbacoa pop-ups, and later opened their eatery Barbakush in East L.A. Praised as one of the best Mexican eateries on the Westside, Petra and her family source their lamb locally from Chino Hills and prepare their barbacoa in an earthen pit, cooking it slowly over an open fire. Offering several different styles of classic tacos on their handmade-to-order corn tortillas, as well as chips and guacamole, they are the perfect complement to Lanea’s unique cocktail menu.

“This year has already been a crazy year for us all and the addition of a record breaking pre-start to fire season elevates the stress on our firefighters and frontline workers,” says Lanea Proprietor Peter Trinh. “Petra and I, alongside our other partners, are really thankful and humbled by the local support as we continue to offer a safe, affordable outlet for the local community. So we wanted to do something to help us all band together to support and thank our firefighters and frontline workers further. Please join us on National Taco Day and check out our new to-go small batched canned cocktails, or our handmade gluten-free tacos, and help us support our hard-working firefighters.”

Lanea’s hand-crafted cocktails are still available to-go, and their Summer menu additions are here to stay. Sip on one of their frozen drinks such as the Horchata Colada crafted with Santa Teresa Rum, pineapple, horchata, almond milk and coconut, the Third Street Sling made with Hibiscus Patron Tequila, fresh lemon, passionfruit, and pineapple, or the Jungle Bird Scooter crafted with Vida Mezcal, fresh lemon, ginger, and campari. Starting at only $9, enjoy a variety of signature canned cocktails such as the Paloma made with The Chainsmokers’ JAJA Tequila (must try!) containing grapefruit tonic and Aperol, or the Margarita with Cazadores tequila, fresh lime, demerara, and orange liqueur.

Icona Pop – Feels In My Body

Global chart-topping duo Icona Pop are back following their 2020 smash collaborations with heavyweights Steve Aoki and Hayden James, this time with another banger called “Feels In My Body,” which is out now via RECORD COMPANY TEN/ULTRA Music. The song also comes paired with a music video, shot by director Gustav Stegfors and acclaimed Director of Photography, Crille Forsberg (David Bowie, Adele, ZAYN). Watch HERE

Speaking about their new feel good-summer jam, Icona Pop’s Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo reveal, “Feels In My Body is all about hitting your peak, being so full of energy that you want to burst and share it with everyone around you.”

Listen to “Feels In My Body” HERE. 

“Feels In The Body” follows two massive collaborations this year for Icona Pop, including “Right Time,” with Australian producer and songwriter Hayden James, which Rolling Stone said “captures the feeling of the dance floor during this time of isolation,” and “I Love My Friends,” the lead single off Steve Aoki’s recent album, Neon Future IV.

Swedish chart-topping duo Icona Pop continue to slay since their 2013 full-length debut, This Is… Icona Pop, which garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone as the duo performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and America’s Got Talent in addition to featuring on the iconic HBO series Girls and a popular Saturday Night Live sketch. They canvased the globe on sold out tours with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and One Direction and joined Tiësto for the banger “Let’s Go” in 2014. Along the way, the duo has performed alongside everyone from Avicii to The Chainsmokers as well as gracing the stages of Ultra, Tomorrowland, Mark Ronson’s Club Heartbreak, and more. Since then, they have consistently filled the gap in music when it comes to upbeat, carefree, quality dance-pop.

Last year, the girls DJ’d across Europe, Asia and North America as well as released a string of bangers including their Yves V and Afrojack collaboration for “We Got That Cool.” In addition, IconaPop continued their message of inclusivity, self-acceptance and positivity on the road for their WorldPride tour, culminating with a show-stopping performance at Stockholm Pride that included a special appearance from Sporty Spice herself, Melanie C.

Steve Aoki × Frank Walker × AJ Mitchell 

Today, two-time Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Steve Aoki, alongside rising fellow DJ/producer Frank Walker, and pop singer-songwriter, MTV Push/Vevo LIFT Artist, AJ Mitchell drop a refreshing high-energy summer collaboration “Imagine.” This new single calls us to imagine everything that comes with a relationship blending Aoki’s signature electro-pop sound with Walker’s dance-pop and Mitchell’s smoot breezy vocals, and is set to save the dancefloor this summer.

Aoki, Walker and Mitchell seamlessly blend their talents to create “Imagine”, a high-energy track that explores the highs and lows when imagining love. With catchy lyrics and a feel-good melody that combines underlying piano chords with sonic and techno beats, it transports you to your most desired state of love and the emotions felt in that ideal state. The chorus echoes “I want it with you” knowing that each listener can visualize their love and feel their own euphoria at the beat drop. The melody continually grows in strength as the lyrics confirm the power love can have in any situation…”if you imagine.”

“This track with Frank & AJ is something we poured our heart & souls into, and I’m so excited for it to be out just in time for Summer,” said Aoki. “The lyrics are something everyone can relate to, and the beat is something everyone can dance to. I wish we could bring it to you live in-person, but we have some special plans regardless to bring this to the world.”

“Imagine feels like such a game-changing song for me personally,” said Walker. “Creating a record alongside Steve has been incredible, he’s a legend in the dance scene and being a part of his creative process is unlike anything I’ve done before. Taking our production and adding AJ Mitchell into the mix took the record to a new level, he’s such a talented artist with a crazy voice. The three of us were able to come together with our own unique sounds to something truly special on Imagine. I can’t wait for the world to hear this one!”

“I’m very excited to be a part of such a fun record as “Imagine,” said Mitchell. “Steve has been one of my favorite people to work with. Him and Frank are both super talented and this is an awesome track you won’t be able to stop dancing to.”

Steve Aoki, the two-time Grammy-nominated producer/DJ is one of today’s most successful American cross-genre artists, collectively counting 2.8 billion music streams on Spotify. As the founder of the trendsetting record label, events/lifestyle company, and apparel line Dim Mak Records, which he founded in 1996, Aoki has helped launch the careers of global acts like The Chainsmokers, Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, The Gossip, and The Kills, among many others. Dim Mak today counts more than 1,000 official releases from the biggest acts and most buzzing newcomers across EDM, indie rock, hip-hop and beyond over its two-decades-plus discography. As a solo artist, Aoki boasts a lauded discography that includes: Wonderland (2012), his debut solo album, which garnered him his first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronica Album; hip-hop centric Kolony (2017), and the Neon Future series, which includes Neon Future I (2014, certified gold by the RIAA), Neon Future II (2015), Neon Future III (2018) and the recently released Neon Future IV (April 2020); which has rocketed in streaming to date and received praise from singles such as “Maldad” ft. Maluma and “Let It Be Me” ft. Backstreet Boys. Recognized by Forbes as one of the top 5 world’s highest paid DJ’s and the world’s hardest working DJ, Aoki is “one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world” (Billboard), counting more than 250 tour dates per year. In 2012, Aoki founded THE AOKI FOUNDATION, which primarily supports organizations in the brain science and research areas with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation. Most recently, Steve Aoki released his critically acclaimed memoir entitled BLUE: The Color of Noise published by St. Martin’s Press. 

Following up on a massive 2019, Frank Walker has had a huge start to 2020. Touted as an iHeartRadio Future Star and a Billboard Rising Artist, this Toronto-native has captivated fans across the globe, owning main stages in Europe, Asia, and North America. Frank also supported Kygo on his “Kids In Love” worldwide tour. Backed by the industry’s best and fresh off a new record deal with Sony Music this producer is becoming a mainstay on Spotify’s Dance & Pop playlists. Destined for big things, Frank is coming off a collaboration with R3HAB and has had official remixes for Kygo, Marshmello, Chainsmokers, Alessia Cara, Bastille, and Loud Luxury. His recent singles ‘Heartbreak Back’ and ‘Only When It Rains’ both went top 10 on Canadian Top 40 radio, with the former gaining Gold status. Frank will be returning to Ultra Music Festival’s main stage this year and also secured a 2020 Vegas at Wynn where he will be playing 20 shows at Encore Beach Club & XS Nightclub.

Sporting a slick and show-stopping voice, sharp songwriting chops, and endless charisma, AJ Mitchell emerges as a stylish and soulful new leading man for pop R&B. Born and raised in Belleville, IL, he went from uploading highly-trafficked covers on social media to personally writing and recording his 2017 breakout single “Used To Be.” Clocking over 90 million Spotify streams to date, the song paved the way for a deal with Vol. 1 / Epic Records and saw AJ relocate to Los Angeles. 

With over 100 million-plus streams on tracks such as “I Don’t Want You Back,”Girls”, “All My Friends”, “Talk So Much”, and “Move On” and nearly 8 million monthly listeners on Spotify, he’s cemented himself as 2020’s fastest rising star. Named a 2019 MTV Push artist and a 2019 Vevo LIFT artist and acclaimed by Billboard, Idolator, and Seventeen, he’s sold out numerous headline shows and performed on The Today Show and Good Day New York. Over the past year, his rapid rise only accelerated. AJ flexes his star power and vocal prowess on the Slow Dance EP. Preceded by “Move On” and the Top 40 single and title track “Slow Dance” [feat. Ava Max], his songwriting and show-stopping spirit once again take center stage on upbeat and undeniable new anthem “Out My Mind.” To date, AJ has had three songs in the Top 40 Pop Radio charts: “Girls”, “All My Friends” (#20), and “Slow Dance”. This past spring, AJ released his collaboration with Rich The Kid called “Spring Break”, and most recently unveiled his uplifting new single “Burn” in June. Following its release, “Burn” ranked as pop radio’s most added song. Now, he sets his sights on pop domination with every move as he gears up to release his highly anticipated debut full-length album Skyview this year.

Quinn XCII – Two 10s

Quinn XCII returns today with his new single “Two 10s” via Columbia Records. “Two 10s” is the first taste of Quinn XCII’s upcoming third album, which is set for release later this year. Along with the song, he also released the official video, directed by Symone Ridgell. The song was co-written by Quinn XCII alongside Jorgen Odegard (The Chainsmokers, Julia Michaels), Wayne Serman (Imagine Dragons), Andrew Tolman (The Moth & The Flame), and JT Daly (Paper Route).
 
“A lot of my upcoming album, as with my last single Stacy, is inspired by nostalgia – from the topics, to the sonics,” Quinn XCII says. “My newest single “Two 10s” is about asking your parents for $20 as a kid to go hang with friends, and feeling like you were rich and could do anything with it. The song has a vintage feel and I’m experimenting with a lot of new sounds and textures that I’m really excited to bring into this next album phase.”
 
“Two 10s” follows the release of Quinn XCII’s previous single “Stacy.” The track was also co-written by Quinn XCII and has accumulated over 40M streams to date.

World War Joy Tour

By: Krishan Narsinghani

The Chainsmokers returned to their home of Los Angeles to shake down Inglewood at the legendary Forum. With over 40 shows on their World War Joy Tour, the duo (Drew Taggart and Alex Pall) didn’t stop short to show LA why they’re one of the world’s leading EDM acts.

The evening began with acts Lennon Stella and 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) warming up the nearly sold-out 18,000 capacity arena. The Australian pop-rock band, whom hail from Sydney, during their riveting performance, reminded the crowd that they are not your conventional ‘opening act.’ After belting hit after hit, it was apparent that this group could pack a stadium on their own accord with ease.

Production for each Chainsmokers’ song kept the crowd enticed and on their toes –  i.e. tranced with lasers, motorcycles, pyro sticks and special guest appearances. Blink-182 made a surprise entrance to help preview a new single dropping on the anticipated Chainsmokers’ album, “World War Joy,” set to release on December 6th. 

The group continued with smash hits like the Grammy award winning, ‘Don’t Let Me Down,’ along with favorites ‘Closer,’ and ‘Takeaway.’ Bass heavy mixes paralleled with Drew’s angelic vocals was a sweet spot for dance music fanatics. The live performance truly made you a fan if you weren’t already. 

Urban Electric Artist Aazar Releases New Single

Following a recent track with Grammy winning, dance-duo, The Chainsmokers, French DJ and producer, Aazar is just time for the summer with his debut single (via Interscope Records) – “Diva (featuring Swae Lee & Tove Lo)” – the rhythmic, hip-swaying banger is available today via all digital retailers.

An Ode to Modern Divas in all their forms: from the most badass to the most glamorous, dancers or boxers. Aazar wanted us to celebrate in a fun and uninhibited way the diversity of the “Carefree Divas” of the World. Watch  Aazar, Swae Lee, and Tove Lo dance around the streets of Los Angeles in the video directed by Original Kids HERE.

The trio teamed up after Aazar was asked about his dream collaborations. “’ Diva’ is a very special record to me. I produced this record a few years ago and I always wanted a vocal on it. Here we are now, with Swae Lee and Tove Lo…I couldn’t be happier” says Aazar of the track. After sharing his appreciation of Swae Lee, Aazar (Alexis Duvivier), coincidentally ran into him at Paris Fashion Week. Without hesitation, he told the Grammy-nominated rapper that he’s a producer, a huge fan and believed that one day they would work together. When he reached out to Swedish singer, Tove Lo, who thought the song “felt like a golden egg dropping into [her] lap,” he wasn’t confident of a response. Tove was immediately on board after finishing a writing session for her album back home in Stockholm. Calling it the “fastest and smoothest collab ever,” she sent her vocals back within forty-eight hours.

More on Aazar: Paris-based producer and member of Point Point, Aazar, has been immensely busy in the studio working on an abundance of exciting new music this year. Having produced official remixes for the likes of David Guetta (Flames) and Martin Solveig (My Love) as well as powerful collaborations with Cesqueaux, Yellow Claw & Moksi (Shanghai Nights Album), Aazar is generating an undeniable buzz around him and his music. His more recent collaboration with The Chainsmokers on groundbreaking track ‘Siren’ has been streaming non-stop worldwide. Aazar’s live career is also on the rise, continuously touring around the world and playing for new audiences in Europe, Asia, USA as well as celebrated festivals such as Tomorrowland, Encore Beach Las Vegas, Mysteryland, the momentum is clear in Aazar conquering these territories. In contrast to the globe-trotting exploits of this artist, Aazar has also been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, as his gourmet alter-ego Chef Aazar. Interesting and tasteful, exactly how Aazar approached everything in 2018 and before; and 2019 is going to build on this trend since he already has some exciting stuff cooking.
