Tim Cook: “Apple Music will forever change the way you perceive music”

“Apple Music will forever change the way you perceive music,” Tim Cook said at a conference in San Francisco to everyone in attendance, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of music lovers who watched their homes.

Details about the corporation’s project, a service that will compete with Spotify and Tidal, have long been unknown. Everything changed that day, at a chic event with the participation of Drake, the performance of The Weeknd and, of course, the first look at the platform’s elegant design as always.

In short: Apple Music will launch on June 30 and will provide subscribers with access to a library with over 30 million songs for $ 9.99 a month. It seems to be just like Spotify, right? Well, then it became Continue reading

Roshin Murphy: “They said that I was not a pop star. Here are the cheeks!”

Roshin Murphy is back with a new excellent album. How many years have passed? Eight from her last studio album, which was produced by a whole team of hitmakers. However, there was not a single hit on the album. But the failure of the album “Overpowered” did not become an occasion to give up. This lady is always on the move. Its genre is not accidentally called “dance pop.”

Early morning. Berlin is struggling with one of the last winter frosts and Roshin Murphy has caught a cold, but thanks to her medications she stoically holds. She is wearing a black coat and retro sneakers from the assortment of the 80s. It fits perfectly into the atmosphere of the “Monkey Bar”, related to the recreated Bikini complex (an architectural structure with cultural and historical significance – approx. Ed.) In the western part of Berlin. He is one of the few places where a DJ can play vinyl. Bring it back.

I am glad to see you again and speak with you after 8 long years. How does the return feel for you?
Oh, great. But all this time I did not sit with hands clasped. You can hear me in the compositions of Tony Christie, Boris Dlugosh, The Feeling and Crookers. But here is a different scale. I give interviews in different countries, I will go on Continue reading

The calm before the storm: an interview with Florence Welch

After the magnificent theatricality of “Ceremonials”, the third Florence + The Machine album “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful” seems very restrained and personal.

Florence Welch told Emily Mackay how she managed to overcome many demons, resigned to her own vulnerability.

More recently, the creators of the comic book Phonogram have published a new series called The Wicked – The Divine. They have the main postulate that music is magic that changes routine, goes to a new level: in our world, pop stars are gods chosen from among mere mortals and endowed with incredible miraculous power. What’s the catch? As soon as a person becomes a deity, he has only two years to live. All the “gods” in this series resemble real performers: Bowie, Prince, Rihanna.

The sun goddess Amaterasu looks suspiciously familiar. Fiery hair, bright make-up, wide white skirts and sleeves … “Oh my god, what is it … ABOUT WOODS!” Florence Welch goes into a screaming whisper when I show her these pages, sitting next to her in her kitchen. I also tell her about the “two years remaining” rule. Continue reading
