PLAYLIST OF THE WEEK: CHILLYOURMIND
5/17/18

HITS in-house playlist aficianado Ranya Khoury has done it again, she's stopped at nothing to bring you the best in playlist curators for your listening pleasure. 


From a Youtube channel to a record label, ChillYourMind’s Pavle Piscevic filled me in on how he was able to use his curating skills to develop various underground producers, such as Alex Schulz and Axero. Piscevic’s involvement on Youtube dates back to 2014. Little did he know, his hobby of sharing his favorite tropical and deep house tracks would soon become a full-on career.

After realizing the impact his channel made, Piscevic became determined to take his brand to the next level. By keeping his uploads current and selectively sharing only the newest and hottest releases, ChillYourMind has been able to accumulate over 500k monthly subscribers on Youtube alone.

Pavle’s involvement in the industry became increasingly valuable−building both a Spotify network and a record label. His label has signed a plethora of electronic artists including We Are Friends, PROVI and Balco. ChillYourMind’s Spotify network on the other hand has racked up 50k+ followers. Converting many devoted fans from his platform on Youtube to Spotify, Pavle has proven his ability to strive on a highly competitive platform.

His main playlist, Chill Music, has over 40k followers−a constant growth haven for music lovers who enjoy chill electronic beats. Featuring artists such as Mr. Probz, Bearson and ZHU, Chill Music serves as a perfect gateway for those who are interested in getting into the genre. “While a majority of the songs on the playlist are a replica of the Youtube uploads,” Pavle mentions that there are a handful of hits you can’t find on Youtube. 

The best way to stay updated on ChillYourMind’s releases is to follow the official profile on Spotify, but you can check out the namesake playlist below... 

A WELCOME FRIGHT
5/17/18

California-born indie punk band The Frights just released their Epitaph Records debut with "CRUTCH," a track produced by Zac Carper of FIDLAR, mixed by Rob Kinelski and mastered by Grammy winner Greg Calbi, who has worked with the likes of Arcade Fire and Tame Impala among others.  

Managed by Brian Harris Frank of BFrank Management, the group planned the drop to coincide with their Shaky Knees festival performance which preceded a few U.K. stops, dates and details here. Indulge in a high-energy jaunt with the track below while anticipating their next album, due to drop this year. 

THEY FEEL PRETTY
5/14/18


The Greek Theatre reopened its doors last week for its summer concert series, starting with Khalid’s The Roxy Tour. Before Right Hand Music/RCA’s rising star hit the stage with his electrifying show, the crowd got hyped with SYCO/Columbia boyband PRETTYMUCH. The five-piece group mix a fresh R&B sound into your prevalent pop. As they harmonize on cue and whip out choreographed dance moves, you wouldn’t be able to tell that they met only a little over two years ago, but as member Nick Mara says, “We have a sort of swagger to us that just really shows our R&B side.” Brandon Arreaga mentions that they pull inspiration from songs like “Poison” by Bell Biv Devoe saying, “We believe in being cultural. Even in our music and the way we present ourselves. It makes sense for us to let that message come across. We’re pop, but we’re also very urban.”

It’s worth pointing out that their latest music video, for “Hello,” features Tony The Tiger (yes, you read that right), and the song is featured on the first-ever edible record—made of actual cereal, namely Kellogg’s Chocolate Frosted Flakes.

After begging publicist Mike Navarra to reconsider the HITS photo-op, the boys posed for this post-show pic. Seen here are (L-R): Zion Kuwon, Nick Mara, Austin Porter, the mag’s Claudia Villarreal, Arreaga and Edwin Honoret. And a few minutes later, the “cereal” really started to kick in.
