Claudia Maddaluno · 6 months ago · Music

Hey, where do you think you’re going without music?
You’re not actually going to leave your favorite songs at home, are you?

Well, all you have to do is:

  • take a pair of headphones
  • pack a Bluetooth speaker (you’ll need it for beach parties)
  • save this playlist to your Spotify library

It features the freshest songs released in the last period in a nice mix of bossa nova, funk, reggaeton, rap and R&B. So you can enjoy these jams under scorching solar heat finally switching your brain off but always staying tuned on the good music.

Now, is that clear? Okay.
You know what to do!
Have a great summer :)

Woodstock: 5 performances to celebrate the 50th anniversary

Woodstock: 5 performances to celebrate the 50th anniversary

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Music

1969. Nixon is elected President of the United States and Gaddafi takes power over Libya, in New York homosexuals begin to demonstrate for their rights during the Stonewall riots, in London, the Beatles perform on the roof of Apple Records and Milan is shaken by the Strage di Piazza Fontana. While the Vietnam War is collecting more and more deaths, the man puts his first foot on the Moon. 

Exactly in the middle of this marasmus of events and revolutions is Woodstock, the most famous music festival of all time that for 3 days – between delays, encores, and unforeseen events, in the end, there were 4 – has united almost a million people who, intoxicated by the situation, by the wonderful music and by many amazing substances, sang at the top of their voices to the Peace and Love anthem. 

After exactly 50 years we are here to celebrate it with the 5 performances that made history. 

Richie Havens – Freedom

Woodstock officially began on August 15, 1969, a few minutes after 5:00 p.m., when Richie Havens took his place on stage. The euphoria and constant requests for an encore led Richie to close his performance by improvising a version of Motherless Child, a song that is a traditional Negro spiritual. The meaning of the title can be related both to the fact that many slave children were sold very young, becoming orphans, but also to the distance with their motherland, Africa.
So Richie Havens, accompanied by his guitar, began to repeat the word “Freedom” infinitely, marking the opening of the Festival in a striking way.

Santana – Soul Sacrifice 

Twenty-four hours later it was time for Santana and his group of the same name, which was not yet well known at the time. Just think of the fact that Santana’s first album had not yet been released, but their performance was a great success, especially that of the song Soul Sacrifice in which Santana showed the world that with the guitar was not bad at all.

The Who – My Generation 

A manifesto of an entire generation, My Generation closes the live show of The Who – who performed on the second day. A song that became a symbol of protest for a large proportion of young people at a time when they were seen as change, as something wrong.
The performance of My Generation went down in history also for its conclusion, when Pete Townshend starts to slam the guitar on stage and then throws it into the crowd.

Joe Cocker – With A Little Help From My Friends

The third and last day starts with a bang. Joe Cocker brought on stage a unique line up that decided to end with one of the Beatles‘ greatest hits, With A Little Help from My Friends. In Cocker’s version, the song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney to be sung by Ringo Star undergoes a real rearrangement.
We are nobody to judge which of the two versions is better, we just enjoy the beauty.

Jimi Hendrix – The Star-Spangled Banner 

Last, both from our list and from the whole Festival, is Jimi Hendrix. Of his two-hour performance, we decided to mention his performance of The Star-Spangled Banner, the American anthem.
Accompanied by his electric guitar, the decision to bring the national anthem to Woodstock was a clear act of protest against the politics of the time and, of course, against the Vietnam War.

Guess who’s back? Watch new A$AP Rocky video for his latest single “Babushka Boi”

Guess who’s back? Watch new A$AP Rocky video for his latest single “Babushka Boi”

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Music

If there’s a singer who’s been talking about himself this summer, it’s A$AP Rocky and, unfortunately, not because of his music. It was last July in Sweden when Harlem’s rapper (with three members of his entourage) was arrested on charges of assault and detained for three weeks – canceling his presence at the European tour and also at Sònar2019 – during which time the news became a real political case and sparked the anger of his fans. 

Now, despite the sentence that found him guilty, but without providing for prison, A$AP Rocky is back with the official video of his latest single “Babushka Boi” directed by Nadia Lee Cohen

Although the rapper has been working on the song since before the July events, the video that accompanies it is a clear reference to his last experience with the law. 

The video starts with the rapper himself and his associates getting out of jail and getting involved in a series of crimes, always followed by a group of cops with pig faces that we don’t tell you what will happen to them. 

Finally, we can say, A$AP Rocky is back!
