“ORO COLATO”

“ORO COLATO”

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 months ago · Music

Today begins our long, hopefully, journey, with destination the best releases of recent weeks. “ORO COLATO” is truth, absolute and undisputed certainty. But gold is also something precious, that every two weeks we will try to transmit to you, always and tirelessly taking away the burden of listening to the same music.

But be careful not to take our words for pure gold.

A selection arrived after the process of “cupping”, which consists in pouring the gold into a small cup, after removing all the impurities.

Here is our first new selection:

  • BENEE is that safe haven where we all take refuge after a complex day. Impossible to describe in a few words his new album, to insert them all, really. But unfortunately, we had to choose, absolutely to listen, listen again and consume his Supalonely ft. Gus Dapperton
  • Followed by “10 missed calls” from Black Coffee, a beautiful new single that also involves superstar Pharrell Williams & Jozzy. The song will appear on the next album Subconsciously, which will be released on February 5, 2021. A strong and powerful song that you will never get bored with.
  • Born in 1998, Jessica “Jess” Smyth aka Biig Pig is an artist of Irish origin, about whom you will hear a lot in the coming months. “Feels right” is her new single that will win us over after a few seconds. An irresistible groove that makes you want to party all the time.
  • From “Feel right” to “Feel away”, contrasting feelings and sounds. “Feel away” is the new slowthai super single that even hosts James Blake and Mount Kimbie. Absolutely do not miss the magic of this trio.
  • After 5 years also returns Disclosure with a new album. Among the many tracks, we have chosen “Who knew” remixed by the talented DJ of international fame Seinfeld. A return also warmly recommended, not to be missed.
  • He broke all kinds of records, from Cinisello to New York, even for him is now superfluous every word. An international album that hosts important collaborations. We are talking about Sfera Ebbasta of course, impossible not to mention it. We chose the single “Baby” with J Balvin.
  • It’s not really news, but it’s definitely a nice gem to mention if you may have missed it. Let’s talk about “Non si esce vivi” the track by Dola ft Coez, released a few months ago but now debuts in the new “Mixtape Culture”. The usual dose of Cult for Undamento, could not miss on our “ORO COLATO”.
  • Sounds strictly rap, with drums and verses rich of joints, but also moments in which Nicolaj Serjotti surrenders to melodies and lighter atmospheres on carpets that are tinged with electronic nuances. Tetrapak is the new single full of ironic metaphors from his new album Milano7.
  • “A metà strada”, literally, we find the new single by Eugenio in via di Gioia, realized and produced with Moglii.
    A metà strada, a metà del mondo
    Io mi incanto e tu mi svegli
    E ci guardiamo le scarpe
    Per non guardarci negli occhi”
  • A new week and the new pearl to report is that of Q. Today comes out “Alone” absolutely to be included in our first selection.
  • From West London with fury, Caroline is the new single by Arlo Parks. A soft cross between RnB, indie pop and lo-fi. The London singer-songwriter will continue to explore her sound, astounding as ever.
  • LaHasna takes us to the new Italian RNB. From her new mystical album, we chose “Orione”. Lose yourself in her Arabic sounds mixed with modern electro RnB & Pop in Italian.
  • We close our magical selection with something quiet, an absolute debut. Persiani is the new track by Nuvolari, a new purchase of Bomba dischi that as always knows how to surprise us.

Nicolas Miller, a neo-noir photographer

Nicolas Miller, a neo-noir photographer

Collater.al Contributors · 5 days ago · Photography

Imagine New York on a winter’s night: thick fog, heavy rain, neon lights reflecting off the wet asphalt, it’s cold, there’s hardly anyone around and it’s like living inside a movie. It’s spectacular, but it’s not just cinema.
Nicolas Miller, a French photographer based in New York, lives the city by night and transports everyone to the dreamy and threatening atmospheres of one of the most evocative metropolises in the world.

The ingredients of his photographs are few but essential: an urban landscape, darkness, threatening weather and half-deserted streets. Nothing else is needed to describe the dark life of the city.

With his photographs, Nicolas Miller succeeds in narrating the different dimensions of New York, analysing its spaces, looking through the illuminated glimpses of skyscrapers and reporting the mysterious stories of those who, like him, walk late at night in solitude.

His shots respect a uniform and coherent visual narrative, they are dramatic images with few bright colors, many contrasts and soft lighting. His dark environments seem to be inspired by the great neo-noir classics of cinema, each shot seeming to be captured from a film scene.

Nicolas Miller works in the mist, telling the dark side of New York and setting up mysterious and enigmatic stories.

The extravagant portraits by Alexandra Savina

Giulia Guido · 5 days ago · Photography

At only 22 years old Alexandra Savina has already developed a unique and personal style. The young photographer and creative from Moscow, in fact, has managed to represent with images her strong passion for people. 

Through her shots, very often portraits, Alexandra Savina tells what is hidden behind the faces, or the emotions, the different personalities, breaking down preconceptions and appearances. 

But how does she manage to do it? With the use of color, always full and intense, through unusual and unconventional poses and, last but not least, a touch of extravagance that in addition to never lacking is just that little something extra that will make you want to continue to browse her shots. 

“Photography is my voice, my language, my way of saying “the world is beautiful, people are beautiful, creativity rises within us and it’s essential.” 

This approach to the human figure and its essence has led her to collaborate with several companies including Nike, adidas and StreetBeat, but also to shoot public figures, playing with them and with the camera.

Freedom and femininity in the shots by Caroline Dare

Freedom and femininity in the shots by Caroline Dare

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Art, Photography

Born in 1994, Caroline Dare is a young American artist and photographer who now lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Her passion for photography was born when she was still a child and by pure chance, she took some pictures of one of her sisters. 
From that moment on, her love for the lens has never abandoned her. 

Caroline Dare doesn’t set limits for herself: in addition to photographing herself and boys and girls in their intimacy, in stolen moments and on the move, she often shoots her surroundings, whether it’s the landscape seen from the window or a simple object. Anything can prove to be the ideal subject for the perfect shot. 

The style of her shots involves a digital imitation of film grain, which matches the colors and hues of the shots ranging from yellow to blue, to red. Caroline’s are spontaneous photographs that speak to us of freedom, of the body and mind, and of femininity. 

Discover below a selection of her shots and follow Caroline Dare on Instagram not to miss all her work.

The Climate Crisis Font, the font against climate change

The Climate Crisis Font, the font against climate change

Collater.al Contributors · 3 days ago · Art

The effects of climate change are slowly destroying our planet: glaciers are melting at record speed, ocean temperatures are rising uncontrollably, sea levels are rising inexorably and extreme weather events are continuing unabated. The only way to get this situation under control is to act quickly, but getting the institutions to speak out seems to be very difficult. So what can be done?
The advertising agency TBWA\Helsinki and Helsingin Sanomat, Finland’s most famous newspaper, have recently launched a new and original project in the hope of attracting the attention of those in power. It is called The Climate Crisis Font and is, to all intents and purposes, a font against climate change.

The Climate Crisis Font was created to illustrate climate change and its effects on the planet in a simple and accessible way. It is not a font with a linear and defined shape, but it has a variable structure that can be modified and transformed at will. Its mutability is not accidental, but is based on data collected over the years by the National Snow and Ice Data Center, the US information centre supporting worldwide polar and cryospheric research.

This font follows the transformation of the state of the glaciers over the years, from 1979 to 2020. In addition to showing a dangerous and out-of-control phenomenon, it predicts melting until 2050 and the imminent end of the northern ice cap.

The Climate Crisis Font can be downloaded for free on the official Helsingin Sanomat page, visit the site and watch the project video below.
