British musician Damon Albarn, best known as the frontman of the Gorillaz, released his debut solo album Everyday Robots last year. In a recent interview with NME, Albarn said: "I can definitely see another Gorillaz-esque record at some point, yeah. That will almost definitely happen. I could put a Gorillaz record out next week; I’ve got enough stuff that I haven’t finished. The only thing really that defines a Gorillaz record in my head is when I just play most of it on keyboards. I’ve just been in Paris with Jamie Hewlett. There are points in everyone's relationship where they fall out with people that they're close to and then they reconciles, hopefully, and actually, you know, the relationship's probably in a healthier place as a result of that." FINGERS CROSSED the Gorillaz release a new album. -H
Exactly one year ago I quit my job, sold my stuff and embarked on an adventure through South America. It was the best decision I've ever made and I highly recommend it to those of you who feel restless. I listened to my inner voice and decided to make a change. Travelling gives you perspective and space to reflect on what is important in life. I realized what my keys to happiness were and now I'm living MY dream in Brasil. My life is more fulfilling because I can do the things I love on a daily basis. The path I'm currently on feels right because life is flowing. I invite you to have the courage and trust to make changes that allow you to live a more authentic life. Find out what you love to do, and do it. Now. - H.
"An instant dance floor-filler, Unfinished Sympathy is an emphatic statement of things to come from this aberrant collective of musical talent. Produced by Alex Adair and featuring the dulcet tones of newcomer Jasmine Thompson, the track comes by way of renowned London label, synonymous with breaking some of the biggest dance acts of the last decade, Black Butter Records."
It's Friday night and we all need to feel right with the Tropkillaz. They boys hail from Brasil and if anyone has visited this beautiful country you know that these people bring heat to a party. Trust in the sound and let it take you to a new place. -Rayray
When I talk about being with someone I don't mean for one night. Obviously a one night gig is no problem in the language department. But could you have a deep relationship with someone if you couldn't strongly communicate in the same language? Since Ladywood moved to Brasil we are constantly testing this question. Below is a song by Maria Gadú and if she didn't speak English I think we could have a perfectly happy relationship... Just saying.. Listen with love. -R
