Sevenly has created a new approach to helping the many charities of the world. Each week, for 7 days only, they feature a new charity through the sale of t-shirts. The shirts have different designs that reflect the cause each particular charity supports. Sevenly then sets a goal of sales where each person supporting can see how much has been donated and if the goal has reached or exceeded the starting amount.
Being that it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sevenly's cause this week is the National Breast Cancer Foundation, who strive to help women in need get mammograms. The line features t-shirts for men and women as well as zip up hoodies and tote bags with the word "Courageous" embellished in cool prints and colors.
Just when we thought festival season was coming to an end, we now have a reassuring hope to gear up for our beloved music fests. Summer 2012 marked an insane schedule of worldwide music and art festivals and we never wanted it to end. But now (while some of us are enduring the winter season) we have The BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico as an excuse to plan a little getaway.
In it's sixth year, the BPM Festival is set to take place from Jan. 3-14, a totally necessary ten days of music madness. The fest will feature day and night showcases and will be a global gathering of highly sought after DJs and producers. The Phase 1 of the festival will include Carl Cox, Sasha, Nicole Moudaber, Luciano, Marco Carola, John Digweed and many, many more.
It's hard to believe that it's been one whole year since the debut of the Electric Beach series at Santos Party House. Recent headliners include the EC Twins, Tim Mason and this week celebrate with London based DJ, Mat Zo. This young producer is soaring with his no limits style and continues to thrive in a mix of different genres.
An impeccable choice, Mat Zo has become a leading artist in both the trance and drum & bass genres. He has even topped the Beatport charts in both genres at the same time. In the last 12 months alone, his tracks like “Bipolar”, “Superman,” and “Frequency Flyer” dominate the Beatport charts. Similarly, his French-house influenced remix of Above & Beyond’s “Thing Called Love” has found its way into the sets of A-Trak, Afrojack, Porter Robinson, Steve Aoki and Roger Sanchez.
This past Friday, Timeflies took over Terminal 5 in NYC. They played to a packed crowd of screaming fans and proved they are players to watch out for in the music world. The stage presence between Cal and Rez was filled with charisma as they connected with their fans from the stage. Accompanying that charisma, was an immense amount of energy showcasing their versatile approach to each song they performed. The guys were pumped being in their respective hometown and it showed. They played a mix of well-known songs (with a Timeflies twist, of course!) as well as their own productions.
The duo is currently on their first headling tour, 'The One Night Tour,' which goes through November hitting 35 cities. We were able to catch up with them to see what their production routines are, how social media has helped them and what type of music they plan on making in the future.
If you could vote for anything in the world, what would it be? Keep that in mind next month, which marks one of the biggest politcal months of the year. In attempt to encourage the youth of the nation to vote, the PSA video, "Vote 4 Stuff," is compiled of our favorite celebrities dishing on what they would vote for in support of the upcoming election month.
Vote 4 Stuff is a nonpartisan campaign conceived and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. The campaign is being used to urge voters to share what they would vote for (it could be anything!) in a 30 second video. The future outcome is aimed to drive as many people possible to register to vote and get out to the polls on November 6th.
We here at Joonbug love when we come across game-changing music talent. This is exactly why we're currently obsessed with Timeflies. A music duo that is creating new waves in the music biz by creating noise with no limitations. Their productions boast rock, pop, electro, and hip hop sounds--giving new life to each genre.
After meeting during college in Boston, Cal and Rez both had musical backgrounds. In time, they would come together to form Timeflies. Gaining attention for their remixes and singles, they realeased their first album, "The Scotch Tape," last Septemeber where it reached the iTunes top ten chart and hit # 2 on the iTunes Pop chart. In July, they released a mixtape, "Under The Influence," and are planning to release their second album this fall.
Norman Doray has been on a wild ride these past few months. Coming off his huge North American tour in June, Norman jumped right into promoting his summer hit “Celsius,” and played around the globe including dates in Ibiza and alongside Thomas Gold on Governors Island in NYC. With no intention of slowing down, Norman continues to kill it introducing a new collaboration with the Nervo twins and diva vocalist Cookie called “Something To Believe In.” The track is fit perfectly for the dancefloor.
First premiered on MTV Clubland, the video chronicles the typical club night as the spinsters take to the streets of New York. The day session finds them out partying at Neptunes Beach Club in the Hamptons for a seaside afternoon gig before jetting down island for a late night house session at Pacha.
The fall North America tour kicks off October 10 in Boston and sees shows out west and down south. Watch the vid below and check out the tour dates. For more information visit Norman Doray's Facebook page.
