Meet Karol G: Latin Artist On the Rise

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…  Latin urban music definitely needs a fresh female face to shake up a genre dominated by men. Colombia’s Karol G wants to not only bring balance to the urban genre, but also show that women can make a dent in the urban Latin world. “I admit that in the beginning, they would always tell me reggaeton was for guys,” says Karol G. “But we stayed the course. I liked the music we were doing too much to let it go.” Meet this week’s Billboard Latin artist on the rise: Karol G. HustleTV

Name: Carolina Giraldo Navarro

Age: 25 years old

Place of origin: Medellin, Colombia

What does she sound like: A mix of pop and reggaeton. Although she grew up listening to ballads by the likes of Pimpinela, Myriam Hernandez and Thalia, Karol G felt hip-hop and urban music was more her style. Her songs, told from a woman’s point of view, are melodic and eschew raunchiness in favor of attitude.

Big break: Collabs with the likes of Nicky Jam and Reykon.

Major accomplishment to date: “Playing on Premios Juventud [last month] made me very happy.” HustleTV

HISTORY IS MADE AS THIRD MAN RECORDS PLAYS THE FIRST PHONOGRAPHIC RECORD IN SPACE!

By | Music | No Comments
HustleTV Music News….  Third Man Records has officially made history in celebration of their 7 

th Anniversary by launching the first record played in space. The launch of the ICARUS CRAFT, a custom “space-proof” turntable attached to a high-altitude balloon, occurred on July 2
nd just outside of Marsing, Idaho, spinning Third Man’s THREE MILLIONTH record pressed. The ICARUS CRAFT was designed and engineered by Kevin Carrico, longtime friend and electronics consultant for Third Man Records, and launched with the invaluable assistance of SATINS (Students and Teachers in Near Space). HustleTV
The goal of our mission was to send a vinyl record up as high as possible and document it being played there. Near space (our ultimate destination) is regularly visited for NASA (it closely mimics the atmosphere of Mars, so it is traveled to often for tests), but our mission was made complex by the fact that we weren’t simply flying a stationary object, but a turntable that we wanted to work – and work well! – so the endeavor became more of a professional high altitude flight than one might expect. Because of this, we had several, oft-changing government standards to meet while refining our design, selecting camera angles, and weatherproofing our craft in case of inclement weather – all while keeping the weight down and maintaining enough battery capacity to keep the record spinning in the cold air of Earth’s atmosphere. We needed low winds, a clear sky, and approval from the FAA and the FCC, all which coincided perfectly on July 2, 2016.
The craft reached a peak altitude of 94,413 feet at 1:21:20 flight time (roughly 1000/feet/minute) when the balloon burst (a truly beautiful sight) and the descent began. For the entire hour and twenty minutes of ascension, the Icarus turntable faithfully played Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn” (from “Cosmos” by Symphony of Science composer John Boswell) on repeat, using an impressively sturdy phono cartridge and stylus as well as an onboard flight computer programmed with a few different actions to keep the record playing while it was safe to do so. Once the return to Earth began (with the craft attached to a parachute and falling about 4x faster than it rose), the turntable automatically went into “turbulence mode,” where the record continued to spin, but the tone arm was triggered to lift from the record surface and stay in its locked position, to protect both the needle and the record itself. When Icarus reached the ground – in a vineyard, to be exact – the record still spun, unfazed by its incredible journey.
Beyond the potentially bumpy ride, Carrico’s other hurdles to jump in making this project a success had to do with just how incompatible space & vinyl records actually are! According to Carrico, “As you rise higher and higher into the thinning atmosphere, temperature and increasing vacuum (lack of air) can cause issues. Vinyl has a rather low melting point (160°F), and without air to keep things cool, you could wind-up with a lump of melted plastic on your hands if a record is exposed to the sun for too long. Without air, things in direct sunlight can get very hot while things in shade can get very cold. This constant expansion and contraction can physically distort a vinyl record rendering it unplayable. So our turntable platter also served as a heat-sink in order to keep the vinyl cool in direct sunlight.” The gold plating on the record was another measure to keep the grooves from losing their shape. HustleTV
From its conception to flight, this endeavor took over three years, with much of that time spent in research and development, as Carrico tested each component of the craft separately and in combination with others. Of course, Carrico was often pulled away to tend to other Third Man Records projects including rehabilitating the Recording Booth and Wax-O-Matic that reside at its Cass Corridor location. The discoveries made while working on vintage machines like these actually proved helpful in solving issues with Icarus, and vice versa, many solutions developed for Icarus were implemented in Third Man’s machines, full circle.
Carrico’s #1 resource in the success of this project was his father, Dr. John P. Carrico, PhD, a physicist that worked on the Mars-Viking missions and provided endless enthusiasm for his children’s endeavors, large and small. Carrico’s brothers John, himself an astrophysicist, and Tim, who works in the aerospace analytics industry, also provided a wealth of information in making this launch a success. Third Man Records would like to offer its most sincere appreciate to the entire Carrico family.
Gary Lantz of MFK Interests was another member of the team of supreme importance, acting as our thermodynamics engineer and performing many tests that made the launch go as smoothly as possible. David Jankowski of SATINS provided endless flight-support coordination, and all the members of his incredible team (including Paul Verhage, flight engineer, Rachel Verhage, tracking coordinator, and John Kernkamp, senior lab technician) were invaluable. Third Man Records would like to thank MFK Interests and SATINS, for loaning yours truly worthy personnel to this mission.
About the ICARUS CRAFT launch, Third Man Records owner Jack White said, “Our main goal from inception to completion of this project was to inject imagination and inspiration into the daily discourse of music and vinyl lovers. Combining our creative impulses with those of discovery and science is our passion, and even on the scale that we are working with here, it was exhilarating to decide to do something that hasn’t been done before and to work towards its completion. And, it brings us great fulfillment to pay tribute to the incredible scientist and dreamer that Carl Sagan was. We hope that in meeting our goal we inspire others to dream big and start their own missions, whatever they may be.”
Watch the launch in its entirety, archived HERE, or settle for our shorter recap video HERE, and enjoy the fruits of Third Man Records, Kevin Carrico, and the entire team’s labor. Third Man Records could not be happier to check this longtime goal off its bucket list.  HustleTV

Lollapalooza Day 1: Lana Del Rey Takes Selfies With Fans, Chance the Rapper Joins Flosstradamus & More

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News… Lollapalooza kicked off its 25th year Thursday (July 28) in Chicago’s Grant Park. Despite a delayed start (weather pushed back the gate-opening by about 40 minutes — but honestly, who shows up to a festival at 11 a.m. anyway?) and some late afternoon showers that left fest-goers running for cover under trees and skyscraper awnings just outside the festival grounds, it was a satisfying start that culminated with an entrancing performance by Lana Del Rey and a surprise appearance by hometown hero Chance the Rapper.  HustleTV

 

It’s amazing to think that an artist whose first national live performance was a pitchy disaster (remember her lambasted Saturday Night Live appearance in 2012?) has become one of the most vocally reliable and visually compelling live acts on the festival circuit. Lana has mastered the art of her stage show — every backdrop and movement subtly conveys the coquettish ’50s/early ’60s Americana her music is drenched in.

With ruffled red drapes framing her video backdrop, Lana stood between two decorative trees on stage, frequently flanked by supporting dancers in white whose moves matched her own — it almost gave the impression you were watching her in a Rat Pack-approved hotel lobby instead of downtown Chicago. The fluorescent lights beaming her surname, rendered in kitschy diner cursive, to her fans gave the stage an additional flavor of Googie architecture, emphasizing the old Hollywood/early Vegas imagery that’s become her go-to. (Naturally, while 99 percent of festival artists use color video screens to reach the crowds in the back, Lana’s were presented in elegant black & white.)

Chance the Rapper  Chicago’s hometown hero made a surprise appearance during Flosstradamus’ set. Okay, surprise might be too strong of a word: Chance reps Chicago from morning ’til night, he has a new album out this year, and Floss hail from Chicago, too. Still, even if his appearance wasn’t a shock, the crowd was no less appreciative when the Coloring Book maestro hit the stage to perform “Summer Friends” — and that was after Flosstradamus brought out new Bulls player (but Chicago native) Dwayne Wade, who introduced Michelle Williams before she dove into Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” with vengeance. Yep, that’s how you do a hometown set at Lollapalooza.

The British electronic duo had a busy 24 hours. After performing at Interscope’s pre-Lolla party on Wednesday night (which also boasted a set from Aussie newcomer Cloves, whose masterful voice could very well take her indie singer-songwriter sound to a much wider audience), AlunaGeorge owned the stage with a set of icy-yet-danceable electronica. Shortly thereafter, they debuted their “Mean What I Mean” video at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall. And you thought attending a festival was exhausting.

Snoop Dogg on Suge Knight: ‘I Love His Gangsta Head’

By | Interviews, Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. Snoop Dogg, one of the OG’s of the rap game, sat down with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the Drink Champs podcast on CBS Radio’s Play.it podcast network to talk about his recent work with fellow west coast rapper, The Game, to ease the tension in Los Angeles. He also shared stories about the first time he met Nas, and an early Death Row story, in which is—somewhat surprisingly—expressed affection for the label’s notorious leader, Suge Knight.

“The first song we ever worked on was ‘G Thang,’” he said of his relationship with Dr. Dre. “We did a seven day tour for The Chronic, Run-D.M.C., Geto Boys and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. And that motherf—– lasted seven days because on the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me all the Bloods and Crips that we had…every city we went to, it was a problem because they was like you can’t take all these rough, tough Bloods and Crips together.”

While the lineup and reception was great from the fans, Snoop revealed that there was plenty of resistance by law enforcement and members of the local communities. HustleTV

“By the seventh day, we was chilling with some hoes in there and Suge knocked on my door, ‘Put the TV on channel 4,’” he continued. “I put it on channel 4 and the news was outside with the police and everything ‘Yeah we’re about to come in here and get these n—-s out of here right now, we got them surrounded.’ Suge, I swear, that’s why I love his gangsta head…[he] found a way to get me, him and Dr. Dre out… We ran through a back window, ran across a freeway, got us a motherf—–‘ rental car, drove to the next state, got us a private plane and we flew the f— up out of there. G s—, that n—- Suge Knight was a cold gangster.”

Gang life was a part of many of Snoop’s stories, including the first time he met New York rapper Nas. “It’s early 90’s, like ’93 or ’94, so I’m out there hanging with my homeboys. It’s a long street so we’re out there like seven or eight deep and a long van pull up, a white van, a 15 passenger van. A n—- jump out with an all red sweatsuit with one leg of his sweatpants lifted all the way up with some boots on and he’s running across the street where I’m at,” said Snoop in laughter; Nas, unknowingly, was wearing Blood colors in a Crip neighborhood.

“So my n—-s is finna get they thing out, I’m like hold on cuz, that’s the rapper from New York named Nas,” he continued. “This the first time I meet cuz and he running to me and I shake his hand. [I said,] ‘You got on all red in a Crip neighborhood and you brought a 15 passenger van, it looks real suspicious.’ When I shake his hand, I’m like ‘Check yourself, cuz. Next time you out here, here go my number, you got to call me first.’” HustleTV

Snoop also discussed his work with The Game; the two have been in the news lately advocating for an open dialogue between those who feel victim to bad policing as well as police departments who are expressing their own opinions. The two approached L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti, and the heads of the Los Angeles Police Department to start the beginnings of the new dialogue.

“[Game’s] spirit was ‘We’re not going to go down there and smash at them but we’re going to talk to them and build a relationship,’” said Snoop. “If you don’t have any communication, the police are going to be scared when they pull up and just start throwing down when it should be about getting an understanding.”

Snoop reveals countless more stories and over shots and mary jane. To hear part one of the Drink Champs interview with Snoop Dogg, listen below. DJ Hustle

DJ Khaled Drops ‘Do You Mind’ Ft. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, More

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album Major Key will be available at midnight July 29. (See track list below). To get fans excited for the star-studded album, Khaled shared a new single, “Do You Mind” today (July 28). DJ Hustle

The sultry bedroom song samples Michael Sterling’s “Lovers and Friends,” which comes across in a romantic piano that crosses with a strong beat. Because Khaled isn’t satisfied with just one or two features on his singles aka “keys,” he tapped six names to join him on “Do You Mind.” Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, Jermih, Rick Ross and August Alsina all appear on the track (via SPIN).

Minaj starts things off. “Yo, he ain’t messin’ with no average trick, pop pop/ He got Nicki, he know dat he hit the jackpot,” she raps in the opening seconds of her verse. Brown and Jeremih combine their vocal strengths on the chorus. “Let me be the one/ Do you mind? Do you mind?/ Do you mind if I talk to you?/ Do you mind if I touch you there?” they sing together. Future comes in after the 3-minute mark with a passionate verse. HustleTV

Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa, Lisa Loeb to Headline Crystal Pepsi ‘Summer of ’92’ Launch Event

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV  Sports News….  If it wasn’t obvious already, nostalgia for the 1990s has seemingly taken over across the country, and brands are lining up to be a part of the action. On Aug. 9, Pepsi is throwing its hat into the ring with a “Summer of ’92” event at Terminal 5 in New York City headlined by Biz Markie,Salt-N-Pepa, Lisa Loeb and En Vogue to celebrate the re-launch of the short-lived but beloved Crystal Pepsi brand, which will be available in stores in the U.S. for the first time in 23 years beginning Aug. 8. DJ Hustle

Crystal Pepsi, the bizarrely clear cola that the brand initially put on the market back in 1992 (and which was promoted by a strange-yet-memorable Super Bowl commercial  featuring Van Halen’s “Right Now”) and lasted just a year, was brought back late last year for a sweepstakes campaign due to popular demand from fans on social media, and is now being brought back to stores. Accordingly, Pepsi is hopping on the nostalgia train for an event that evokes not just the soda of summer ’92, but the music, hairstyles, games and even smells of the period.

“We’re not just trying to bring the product back, we’re trying to bring the 90s experience back,” says Linda Lagos, marketing director at Pepsi. “It felt like the stars were aligned with Pepsi with this one. We happen to have a very authentic connection to the 90s with this quirky, iconic brand.” HustleTV 

In addition to sets from Markie, Salt-N-Pepa, Loeb and En Vogue, the event will also feature a “‘90s cut & style salon,” an arcade with video games from the time period, a “recess” section with tetherball and four-square and a “smells like ’90s scent station,” the details of which the Pepsi team is keeping close to the chest. Presumably: scratch-offs.

Tickets will be available later today (July 27), but if you can’t wait that long, head over to Pepsi’s ’90s-themed site right here to play a very #branded version of Oregon Trail (naturally titled the Crystal Pepsi Trail) while the time ticks away.

Bad Boy Bill & Richard Vission Team Up For All-Vinyl Tour, Release Commemorative Vinyl ‘Everybody Jumpin’

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV  Music News…. When house legends Bad Boy Bill and Richard Vission decided to hit the road on a back-to-back all-vinyl North American tour, it sounded like a great idea. They were in need of a challenge, a little excitement, and the fact was most EDM fans 25 and younger had never even seen a vinyl DJ set before. DJ Hustle

Together, they could hit the road, breathe excitement into the genre, and reclaim some of the respect and glory of the old days. There was just one problem – where the hell had their turntables gone?

“I lent one out to somebody, and I had no idea where it was,” Vission laughs. “I never thought I was going to be bringing turntables back in the house, setting them up – and there was a learning curve. When I got on the turntables and started practicing, that first half hour was the roughest half hour you will ever have heard.”

“Let’s be honest, Richard,” Bill teases, “there’s still a learning curve.”

With five shows below the belts, the guys have worked out the kinks, or at least most of them.

“There’s still mistakes, and that’s the fun of it,” Vission says. “You cold go see the best band in the world, but that drummer is not going to be on perfect time if you put on a metronome, but that’s what makes that band breathe. When we play, the music is breathing differently.”

To err is human and to remix records on the fly is divine. As it turned out, relearning how to analog beat match and pitch control was the least of their worries. It’s not just DJs who have unlearned the craft. Clubs, too, have shifted their set-ups to meet the demands of technology, and that presented Bill and Richard with a new set of problems they never could have imagined.

DJ booths have become smaller and more cramped. Most nightclubs have even outfitted the booth with noisy bass speakers, which is great if you’re using Serato, but not so great for sensitive wax and needle rigs. Bill spent two days experimenting with a booming system to find the right combination of vibration cancelling techniques. He settled on the very advanced combination of squash balls underneath a two-inch slab of concrete. HustleTV

Once they know the tables will stay solid, they have to test out a variety of tables with each individual sound system. Analog tables are a lot more sensitive and aren’t all tuned in exactly the same way. They’ve got to go through six or more turntables a night just to find four that will sound great on the particular club’s system. Sound checks can take as long as five to six hours. It’s a real process.

“A lot of times we can’t set up in the booth because four turntables won’t fit, so we like to set up as close to the crowd as we can,” Vission says. “We want them to see wires coming out. We want them to really be right there, really be able to say ‘wow, they’re really doing it. What I’m seeing, they’re doing. That’s very important for us.”

It was also important that they play new music instead of just delivering the same sets from 10 or 20 years ago. Even with vinyl’s recent resurgence, that meant personal appeals to friendly labels and producers they respect and asking permission to have their records pressed for the tour. Again it was time consuming, but it was well worth the wait, and it inspired the friends to have their own commemorative records pressed. HustleTV 

Everybody Jumpin’ features five original tunes from Bill and Vission separately, as well as a revamped collaborative title track that takes one of their favorite ’90s tunes from the Lisa Marie Experience (which samples an original tune by Musique from 1977) and re-imagines it for the modern dance floor. It’s bouncy, energetic, and highly danceable, a real feel-good song to get crowds in the mood for a night full of fun. It’s going over really well in the sets so far, and fans can order the limited release record via the tour website.

 

The pair are now five shows into a 20-date tour that will hit Washington, D.C. on Wednesday and Brooklyn the next night, with upcoming stops in Orlando, Atlanta and Los Angeles and more dates to be announced soon. That’s a lot more than they had originally anticipated. The guy’s figured they’d do six or so shows and call it a rest, but people are really embracing the idea. It’s like the fans were thirsty for something they didn’t know they wanted.

“This guy came up to us (at the first show in Cincinnati, Ohio),” Vission remembers. “He had tears in his eyes, and he was like ‘I’m sorry if I’m so emotional, but I didn’t think I’d ever see this in my lifetime again. I didn’t think I’d see DJs playing vinyl, and you guys are playing new music. This is jus one of the most amazing nights of my life.’ It’s heavy. We told him too, we didn’t think we’d be doing this two years ago either.”

And there’s always been good strip clubs in Philly, it just depends what you’re looking for. You can’t go wrong with Delilah’s. I have a buddy who’s a bartender there.” Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N.

Kiiara’s Hit Song ‘Gold’ Was Inspired by ‘The Idea That You Don’t Have to Answer to Anyone’

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV. Music News…. Kiiara has only released a handful of slick electronic pop songs to date, but she’s already amassed an army of supporters. Last summer, Apple’s Beats 1 Radio played her song “Feels” directly after the high-profile debut of  Drakeand Future’s What A Time To Be Alive mixtape. In May, Shazam placed Kiiara’s “Gold” 4th on a list of 12 possible candidates for the Song of the Summer title. The tune already has more than 188 million plays on Spotify, and it recently cracked the top 25 on the Pop Songs Airplay chart. Billboard caught up with Kiiara to talk about writing songs while working a nightmare job at a hardware store and the first time she heard herself on the radio. DJ Hustle

How did you first get into music?

When I was younger, music was always there. I played piano for five years, flute for a year, then picked up a guitar and really started writing. Writing-wise I started when I was 17. Whatever was bothering me, I could just write about it in a song. I was in the west suburbs of Chicago, then I moved an hour south, and then I went to school up on the South Side — Saint Xavier, though I was at Purdue for a second before I dropped out.

 

And you were working at a hardware store when you wrote “Gold”?

I wanted a job during the summer. When I was on break that’s what I would do when I would go back home.

And then you’d write at night?

Yeah, I was always writings songs — in my dorm room, anywhere.

What was the best part about working in a hardware store?

I don’t know if I can even answer that. I hated it. I was really bad at it too — people would ask where stuff was and I’d be like yeah, that’s in aisle 24, and it would be in aisle 7. I was useless. I don’t know how I wasn’t fired.

How did you connect with producer Felix Snow?

A writer I was working with connected me. We started working via email, and then I flew out a couple times and worked with him in person.

Had you heard any of his stuff before you started working with him?

I heard this Momma project he did with a friend of mine who I was co-writing with, David Singer-Vine. It was so sick. I told David it was tight; he said this producer did it. It’s all sort of boring. I can’t remember the exact moment.

What do you like about Snow’s production style?

The main thing is the chemistry is there when we’re working together. When you’re working with a producer, there has to be chemistry. He’s not afraid to try different sounds. He’s really good with vocals — it’s super dope.

Was “Gold” the first song you made with him?

No, it wasn’t. We made one track, then we made a different version of “Gold” – a down-tempo version, because I originally wrote the song on classical guitar. So it was the second one.

Desiigner – Tiimmy Turner (Official Audio)

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV. Music News…. Much has been made of Desiigner‘s scintillating, finger-snappin’ XXL freshman freestyle. “Timmy Timmy Timmy Turner / He be wishing for a burner.” Desiigner has since previewed the song several times in various states of completion. It became evident that the gothic stylings of Mike Dean were going to give the song a character few would have predicted after Desiigner’s a capella freestyle.

Desiigner released “Tiimmy Turner” this afternoon. First impressions: Mike Dean is a legend. The song’s towering synths suddenly dissolve about two-thirds in, giving the chorus an entirely new, “Runaway”-esque complexion. It’s almost as if, over the course of the song, Tiimmy Turner ascends from hell to heaven. DJ Hustle
