16th of April saw the official launch of Plastic World. It is a boutique label that has plans to push Australian music on an international scale. It is the brain child of former Future Classic Coordinator james mcInnes and Astral People’s Vic Edirisinghe, of which has been conceived and developed over the past year.
The Music Network posted a brilliant interview outlining the labels plans and intentions, so check it all out here!
Jay-z’s Record Label Roc Nation has officially become a part of the Universal Music Group.
While jay-z has previously been a part of UMG as president of Def Jam Records- ever since starting Roc Nation, he has been under Sony Music and Atlantic Records.
This is a huge coup for Universal as not only does Roc Nation’s roster hold some of pop-music’s best (Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole, Rita Ora, Calvin Harris, NO ID, Timbaland, Solange, M.I.A., Santigold, deadmau5, Wale Kylie Minogue,) but UMG now hold all 5 of hip-hop’s greatest, and wealthiest, under their umbrella (Jay-Z, Diddy, Dr Dre, Birdman and 50 Cent.)
The Tomorrowland team expanded on their brand name significantly when they introduced Tomorrowworld to us this year. Now, they are taking it one step further by releasing a comic book, starring Like Mike & Dimitri Vegas.
It will be a four issue series and will follow the duo as they battle various forces, all to keep creativity alive in the world. It sounds as if it is a little (maybe more than a little) symbolic of today’s real issues surrounding music’s conformity and saturation, particularly in the dance realm.
The first instalment will become available on July 17th, right in time for Tomorrowland!
Whether you are going to the festival or not, make sure you catch a read of this!
