Lunice hints at TNGHT comeback, Diplo pairing in new interviewTnght

In a recent interview with SR-MAG, Lunice answered questions about touring with Madonna, his production influences on his debut CCCLX LP, producing with Kanye and Diplo, where he thought the cultural shift in electronic music is going, and a tantalizing hint at TNGHT‘s reunion.

What’s more, Lunice also discussed work he’s been doing with Diplo, revealing a possible collaborative project with the Ma and has been working with his old counterpart Hudson Mohawke for a potential TNGHT comeback, as they’ve been hinting since the end of last year. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke haven’t worked together since 2013, since the release of one single “ACRYLICS,” and before that in 2012 they released their TNGHT EP via Warp and LuckyMe that featured the massively popular EDM trap hitter, “Higher Ground,” that rocked festivals stages in the hay-day of electronic trap. In 2013, the trap duo co-produced “Blood on the Leaves” with Kanye West from his critically acclaimed Yeezus album.

Lunice has produced with the likes of Angel Haze, Azealia Banks, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, Le1f, and many more aside from the artists listed above. His music cuts through the contemporary dance music landscape through textured sounds, clear production, and experimental pairings that have made his production skills a highly sought-after commodity.

Woodstock 50 looks for somebody to give peace a chance as the festival seeks a venue just 30 days out

Woodstock 50 looks for somebody to give peace a chance as the festival seeks a venue just 30 days outMichael Lang

Woodstock 50 seems to be in its 11th hour as the town of Vernon, NY has unanimously rejected the event’s appeal to a denied permit application earlier this week. This leaves the peace, love, and music festival without a confirmed or even working venue just a month before its scheduled date.

Things went from (really) bad to (much) worse when Virgin Produced, who has recently been in an advisory position quickly cut ties with the festival after the unanimous vote.

“Woodstock will always be remembered as an iconic moment in history,” said Virgin Produced CEO Jason Felts in a public statement. “Despite our formidable effort to assist Michael Lang and the Woodstock 50 ownership in resurrecting their NY festival, it has become apparent that time has expired.”

Festival organizer Michael Lang was not optimistic with
Woodstock 50’s prognosis from here, stating to The Poughkeepsie Journal that “if
it doesn’t work this year, it doesn’t work this year. We’ve tried everything we
can. We’ve done our best.”

Woodstock 50 was originally slated to take place in Watkins Glen, NY, Aug 16-18. Nearly 65,000 attendees were expected after the festival announced a lineup featuring The Black Keys, Dead & Company, Miley Cirus and Santana in March of this year.

A$AP Rocky to remain in Swedish jail for at least another week

A$AP Rocky to remain in Swedish jail for at least another weekTZ64K2VE3UI6TJ3H26VYJLT5E

After his arrest in Stockholm following a street altercation on June 30, Rakim Meyers—known internationally as A$AP Rocky—will spend at least another week behind bars in a Swedish jail.

A judge granted the request from prosecutors to keep Meyers in pretrial detention until at least July 25 so they may complete their investigation. The prosecutors contended Meyers was a flight risk as grounds for the decision. Meyers’ attorney, Slobodan Jovicic, told reporters the decision was “disappointing” following the hearing.

“I think it’s very unjust. He is very tainted (by) this,” Jovicic went on to say.

Recently, Donald Trump made a statement on the matter at the behest of First Lady, Melania Trump:

“Actually, the one who knew about A$AP Rocky was our first lady. She was telling me about, ‘Can you help A$AP Rocky?’” he said.

“We’ll be working with the State Department and we hope to get him home soon,” The First Lady said in response.

“Many, many members of the African American community have called me, friends of mine, and said, ‘Can you help?’” Trump said in the Oval Office. “So, I personally don’t know A$AP Rocky, but I can tell you that he has tremendous support from the African American community in this country and when I say African American I think I can really say from everybody in the country because we’re all one.”

Since Meyers’ incarceration, many advocates in the US have been very vocal in demanding the Harlem-native rapper’s release; even going so far as to make calls to Congress.

Fellow musicians alongside social activists like Rev. Al Sharpton have taken up for Meyers with the hashtag “#JusticeForRocky” becoming widespread across the internet.
