Loud Apartment-New future

It also revels in some 70’s vibes but puts such a modern spin on things that the music always seems ahead of the curve rather than nostalgic. “Technology” is a gorgeous blend of funk grooves and soulful sounds, breezy brass, and florid flutes, “Blessing” comes on like a slow Santana jam, all Latin-infused rhythms and wilfully lazy beats and “Rebellion”, which sees Garrison Hawk providing powerful and poignant vocals, is infectious and invigorating.

Bulleit Frontier Whiskey is unlikely brand behind 3D-printed sneakers

Bulleit is having a 3D printer moment.  The whiskey brand has unveiled limited edition sneakers made with the technology as part of a collaboration with Dallas-based street artist Kyle Steed and industrial designers Tangible Creative. Bulleit is on a mission to celebrate those who are pushing the frontier of their craft and share the same pioneering spirit that the brand was founded on. "The sneaker and mural designs represent the community of artists, designers and leaders in tech and innovation that come together to push the boundaries of the cultural frontier," said artist partner Kyle Steed.  "When we talk about innovation, it's just as much about human connection as it is technology. Where we are many parts ourselves as individuals, only by [ … ]

"A 3D-printed sneaker collaboration between a whiskey company and a street artist? It’s a whole new level of weird. And yet, it feels oddly sophisticated and sort of organic."

Can 3D printing plug the coronavirus equipment gap?

Tangible Creative, which has 100 3D printers at its warehouse in Newark, New Jersey, has partnered with Brooklyn-based competitor MakerBot and Columbia University to create a coalition called the Covid Makers Response. The group is currently printing roughly 2,000 face shields a day, which volunteers pick up and drop off at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan. They are then assembled and sent to more than 30 hospitals in the area.Enter your email to receive CNN's nightcap newsletter.close dialog We read all day so you don’t have to.Get our nightly newsletter for all the top business stories you need to know.Sign Me UpBy subscribing you agree to ourprivacy policy."It was like a war effort," said Tangible's co-founder and CEO Nevaris A.C.

“I think it’s important to have the case study to show the beautiful aspects that were able to happen with additive manufacturing,” said A.C. “But not contribute to the fantasy of ‘we just made these out of nothing in our kitchen.’ There are many, many moving parts to make this happen.”

"“Not only is this a Parsons story, but it is also a New York story,” says Abby Mechanic, the manager of Parsons School of Design’s Making Center. “It shows what individuals can do in a time of crisis and might encourage others to activate their talents in different ways to provide relief for the healthcare professionals on the front lines. I’m very proud of Eugene and Nevaris.”

Loud Apartment/System Breakdown album review

(Translated from Italian) "During the lockdown last spring, the second Loud Apartment album, "Refuge", was released, containing the recording of a 2017 concert, played by a group of jazz musicians linked to the downtown scene.  from New York. The latest incarnation of Loud Apartment, born in early 2020, is totally different and sees Nevaris and Bill Laswell flanked by DJ Logic (cymbals), Peter Apfelbaum (winds), Will Bernard (guitars) and Lockatron (drums). The recordings of “System Breakdown” began last January, before the closures due to the pandemic, and continued during the lockdown which evidently affected the direction of the album, right from its title. While the sound of “RefuGee” is muffled and poorly defined, the eight tracks of “System Breakdown” sound very clear and powerful. The lineup is an [ … ]

“System Breakdown” refers to the collapse of the systems meant to protect citizens during a time like this. Access to healthcare. Access to a vital financial lifeline after the collapse of the live music industry during the pandemic. The album also takes aim at the incompetence and negligence of the current administration in the first two songs. Most of us in the band, as well as our circle of friends and fellow musicians, are hurting financially because of the pandemic. We wanted to address this in the music beyond ourselves personally, addressing the collapse of the existing system as a whole.”

"In short, Loud Apartment has taken a massive leap as a band. Every facet of this band has been realigned and reimagined. They’ve found a way to be a band with a message, but also a band continues to creates absolute head bopping anthems. It’s a fine line to walk and this band has found a way to do it was panache."

Loud Apartment: System Breakdown

(Translated from Spanish) System Breakdown is, more than a collection of songs, a compilation of emotions of a universal nature in these times in which unemployment and the urge to sustain not a lifestyle, but life itself, forces us to mix in different contexts and project the different needs of human beings by nature.

System Breakdown – Loud Apartment (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

"Enough is Enough gets to the heart of the band’s outlook on this album and on life in general…it is time for a change and it is down to the people on the street to instigate it… a marvellous manifesto put to deft reggae tones and soulful licks. Restless blends hip-hop with funk and beats with brass, The Thrill is Good rides some pop-soul grooves running between underground cool and mainstream potential and Dub Enough digs down into some dark dub delicacies. Remember when music was a voice for change? Remember when people seemed willing to advocate constructive disruption rather than just toe the line drawn by political elites? Remember when you could do that and still peddle fantastically emotive [ … ]

Review: ‘Loud Apartment’ ‘System Breakdown’

"The album closes with the 9 minute long Dub Enough, so spark up a fat one sit back and let them slowly nail you to the couch with almost Nyabingi style percussion and shakers for the keyboards to float and explore... this will sound mammoth on a proper loud system as the flute helps you get deep into that zone of spectral keys...as the vocals finally come back in as the cry for revolution gets louder and we all want a peaceful sane world once more.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Loud Apartment

I want to listen to this album while doing something proactive. This music makes me want to get up and change – myself and the surroundings. The revolution has to start somewhere so why not with “System Breakdown?”

Loud Apartment: Review of System Breakdown

[Translated from Italian] The lyrical aspect of the work almost seems to invoke an awakening of consciences and the rebirth of the force of aggregation between human beings, a feeling that over time has been increasingly put aside. Guilty. From an instrumental point of view, that of Loud Apartment is a fresh and energetic kaleidoscopic DJ set with fusion arias: the eight tracks of the release give life to an intoxicating journey, full of velvety groove nuances and vintage colors, with sounds that have their roots. sonorous in the pulsations and hypnotic basses of the Jamaican afro-beat dub, in the old reggae strings and in the languid funky soul samples of Motown.

Get The Funk Out: A candid chat with Nevaris A.C. of Loud Apartment

"The sound is built around the drums, bass and vocals more than anything else. Lockatron, Bill Laswell and I recorded those rhythm and voice tracks first and foremost. All the other tracks were overdubbed on top of that foundation. The extended improvisations are one of my favorite parts of the record and that was about Peter Apfelbaum. DJ Logic and Will Bernard getting a chance to stretch out musically over the foundation. So that combination is what made the sound what it is. We never really tried to make the songs fit within a certain genre. We were focused on taking each song where it needed to go to make sense musically. So it was improvisation built upon rhythm and syncopation. We had a good time making [ … ]
