#Deezer Fans, I got some major updates for you!


 

If you are not a Deezer subscriber, you are really missing out! Did you know that the wonderful people in Deezer recently announced two major new platform developments designed to give all music fans (you & me) an unbeatable experience across mobile, desktop and tablet devices.

For the first time, anyone using Deezer for free on the web can also listen to their favourite music on their mobile through two smart new features that take streaming radio services to the next level.

 

Let the music FLOW on your mobile

From today, when you tune into Deezer on your mobile, you’ll be able to access Flow, the first feature of its kind on a streaming service, designed to give you your very own personal radio station. Delving into your music library as well using your past streams on Deezer, Flow creates a unique radio station fully loaded with all the music you love, on the go and at your finger tips.

What’s more, Flow is free from all time restrictions giving you the ultimate freedom to listen to your favourite tracks whenever you want, wherever you want.

Discover more with PLAYLISTRADIO

If you use Deezer for free and are not content just listening to old favourites or chart toppers, a second new feature – the Playlist Radio – combines the best of yours with the best of ours. It takes your favourite playlists and combines them with recommendations from our expert editors across the world to create a radio station focused on music discovery which is available for free and unlimited on your mobile.

If that’s not enough, Deezer has also launched a brand new radio section on web and mobile. Featuring advanced search features along with hundreds of music genres to choose from, this new section provides bags of inspiration and unparalleled opportunities for music discovery.

Deezer is also going to be removing all time restrictions on desktop and tablet, giving music fans the opportunity to listen to and discover great new music, unlimited and on- demand, for free.

 

 

MAC Users, good news!

 

DEEZER FOR MAC to unify music collections

Deezer for Mac

Today also sees the launch of the new Beta version of Deezer for Mac which, for the first time, allows you to seamlessly and easily merge your existing music collection with Deezer – putting all your music in once place and making it available on any device.

Regardless of the file format, your personal music library is automatically synchronized with Deezer meaning you’ll have access to Deezer’s entire catalogue of 30 million tracks as well as all your favourite music from your personal CD or download collection, at the touch of a button. Radically different from a simple desktop app, Deezer for Mac is much lighter and quicker than a web version.

 

Daniel Marhely, Deezer’s founder, said:

 

“Innovating to push the boundaries is part of our DNA, and our focus right now is on offering an intensely personal music experience for each and every one of our users. With Flow and the new mobile radio features, anyone will be able to discover great new music on their mobile, completely free from any limitations.”

“Meanwhile, our new Deezer for Mac is beautifully simple to use and allows anyone to unify the music collections they’ve painstakingly collected over the years, with music they’re streaming from Deezer. Today’s launch of Deezer for Mac will, I hope, help transition the streaming stalwarts and get them to try our service because when they do, we know they’ll get hooked.”

 

In addition to these new features, Deezer has also enriched its discovery options on mobile. The EXPLORE feature will now enable you to search by geography and genre while a new CHART tab will allow you to search by titles, albums, artists and playlists, meaning you’ll have no excuse for not knowing the words to the hottest new tracks. These latest features continue to offer music fans the most personalised music discovery experience yet and follow the launch of Hear This and Explore for web which were unveiled at the end of last year.

 

What Is…

 FLOW?

• You are able to skip up to six tracks an hour

• There are no time restrictions which means anyone can to listen to their favourite music, wherever and whenever they want

• You are able to skip up to six tracks an hour

• As with Flow, there are no time restrictions for free users

Mariah Carey revisits her classic, mid-to-late-’90s with You’re Mine (Eternal).


Mariah Carey has done it again with her latest single “You’re Mine (Eternal)”!

The mid-tempo tune, co-written and co-produced with Rodney Jerkins, is a breathless, throbbing quiet storm of a song that relies more on its hypnotic charm than Carey’s vocal pyrotechnics.  Instead, she’s fairly subdued throughout much of the song relying on a very deliberate delivery to draw in the listener. However, she picks up speed at the end and hits one of her trademark calling-all-dogs notes around the 3:22 mark.

Watch it!

The video was shot in January 2014 at the El Yunque National Forest in Puerto Rico by director Indrani. The clip shows Carey covered in glitter while singing in several parts of the Yunque rainforest in Puerto Rico, in addition to scenes of her swimming underwater while wearing an evening gown.

The clip also features Trey Songz seemingly portraying the lover in question who Carey is singing about. The song features Carey shown in a topless scene where the singer is seen perched in front of picturesque waterfalls and exotic greenery, doused in gold glitter, with sparkling butterfly wings on her bare back, and some serious cleavage. The singer Trey Songz is featured in a few topless scenes during the video as well.

NOW.

If you listen to it, the track sounds like it could have come out in 1990 or 2000 or now in that neither she nor Jerkins felt compelled to put in any whiff of contemporary production, which is, quite honestly, refreshing. While Mimi of the ’00s was very fond of incorporating hip-hop into the mix, she doesn’t do that here. Thank God she revisits her classic, mid-to-late-’90s R&B form to give a romantic, slower jam that celebrates a love she never wants to end.

This is the type of track that made her one of the best-selling divas of her generation. It’s very much about her voice and pristine production, without all the added urban bells and whistles.

Christina Garibaldi of MTV called Carey’s vocal runs “impressive” and reminded her of “We Belong Together”. She said: “Mimi shows off her impressive range throughout the song, but it’s the note at the end of the track that is bound to leave her devoted Lambily not only mesmerized by her vocals, but yearning for more.”

Jason Lipshutz of Billboard commanded the overall production of the song and highlighted the last note Carey notched at the end of the song, complimenting the song as being a “breathy, enjoyably straightforward love ballad” while complimenting her last note calling it “inevitable”

Jamieson Cox of Time also compared the song to “We Belong Together”: “It’s a gaseous, fluffy ballad that feels like a direct descendent of the song that rang in her mid-career renaissance, 2005’s mega-hit ‘We Belong Together:’ plinking piano melodies, a typically fluttering Carey vocal take, and a very similar beat. Only time will tell if ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’ can duplicate that song’s record-breaking success.

Jeff Benjamin of Fuse described Carey as the master on what she’s doing : “the new single is placed between the R&B and Pop sound that only Mariah knows how to do“. The writer also compared the production of the song to Touch My Body and Always Be My Baby and noted how impressive the last whistle “was”

Amy Sciarretto of PopCrush awarded the song a three stars out of possible five and compared the song to Carey music in the late 90’s and described Carey’s vocals by “soaring”: “Mariah Carey revisits her classic, mid-to-late-’90s R&B form with her new single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal),’ a romantic, slower jam that celebrates a love she never wants to end.[…]”That is, until the 3:20 mark. That’s when Carey goes for it, with one of her acrobatic vocal runs.”

That said, the song is a bit more dated than it is a throwback. It feels like she may have been trying to recapture the sound of her glory days since that formula has served her well, but her last few tracks haven’t gained as much traction at radio. ’90s nostalgia is rampant right now, so if Carey can take advantage of that, more power to her.

Could this get Carey back on the charts? Billboard thinks that this song will probably not going to fit in at Hot 100, but it could definitely see some love at Adult Contemporary and Adult R&B radio. Well, I’ll make sure to keep a close look out at that.

Remix!

A remix featuring guest vocals by Trey Songz was also made available to download digitally alongside the release of the original solo version featuring only Carey in each territory. In an interview with MTV News, Carey praised Songz for his involvement on the song: “I love what he did to the song because I feel like he gave us a lot of different moments artistically … Most people can’t sing, rap, and have a sound that’s current yet also classic.”

A video for the remix version of the song was filmed on February 4, 2014 by director Chris Robinson. It premiered on BET’s “106 & Park” on Friday February 14, 2014.

Did you know? Mariah’s “You’re Mine” underwater swimming scenes were shot not far from where she shot “Honey.” Seeing Mariah in the water immediately brings to mind the sultry, unforgettable moment in that 1997 music video when she dove into a pool in a dress and stripped it off to reveal a chic nude bikini underneath. They need to rename that area the “Mariah Carey Swim District.”

“You’re Mine (Eternal),” will be on Carey’s much-delayed new album. Her new album will be coming out May 6, and is no longer called “The Art of Letting Go.” The singer expressed frustration over her album title leaking last year and as of now, the album remains untitled.

If the holidays have left you sick at the sight of pineapple tarts and bak kwa and you’re wanting to amp up your fitness, Deezer is here to help! Top athletes n(and regular people like me) use music to enhance their performance, and researchers are now studying this phenomenon to understand how to fully harness its power.

 

Deezer spoke with Dr Costas Karageorghis, a leading sport psychologist from Brunel University in London, about how to maximise the beneficial effects of music for your workout. Dr Karageorghis has even made his own ultimate workout playlist on Deezer to get you started. Now there’s no excuse!

 

So can music really help us in the gym/workout?

His research demonstrates that music can be a tremendous supplement to exercise. For maximum impact the tempo and rhythmic pattern need to be targeted towards your movement rate and activity pattern. Music can benefit exercise particularly at low-to-moderate exercise intensities. It is less effective at high intensities, like during sprint cycling, because our brain struggles to process the sound – fatigue-related cues fight to dominate our attention.

 

Does different music work for particular types of exercise?

Weight lifting: Music that is fast, rhythmic, percussive or bass-driven is particularly good for psyching yourself up before a highly strenuous activity like lifting heavy weights.

 

Fast running: You need faster music for when you are training at a high intensity. Dance music of 130-140 bpm is ideal for very intense exercise.

 

Jogging, rowing, cycling: Our recent research has shown that the tempo range 125-140 bpm is ideal across the broad spectrum of exercise intensities when an individual makes no conscious effort to synchronise their movements to the rhythm (asynchronous music). A playlist should ideally contour your expected heart rate during a workout. If you are synchronising your movements with the music, the beats per minute need to match your intended movement rate, so it’s important to determine what this is likely to be and to select music accordingly.

 

What should we look for in a good workout playlist?

The music should possess a pleasing melody and harmony that improves your mood; the music should typically be in a major key. Music that promotes inspiring imagery or has strong personal associations can also be highly effective.

 

The musical rhythm (beat) should make you want to move; as well as having lyrics that contain positive affirmations of exercise such as “work your body”, “push it” or “run to the beat”.

Here is a playlist that I would recommend for the average gym goer, starting with three uplifting warm-up tracks and building up towards a tough cardio-type workout:

Dr Costas Karageorghis has been a consultant psychologist to many leading athletes and is the author of InsideSport Psychology, a guide to strengthening mind and body for enhanced performance. Between 2007-10 Dr Karageorghis was the lead consultant for Run to the Beat, a unique running event featuring live and pre-recorded music to boost performance.

Miley Cyrus “We Can’t Stop” is just plain insidious.


Miley Cyrus, currently enjoying a bout of publicity due to an interestingly choreographed performance at the VMAs, is currently riding off the popularity of her song of the summer “We Can’t Stop.”

This is the song that she performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn on Sunday night.

 

Commonly misconstrued as a vivacious summer “party anthem,” there’s something insidious going on in Miley’s big hit.

 

See, the song isn’t happy. 

 

miley cyrus we can't stop

It’s a song about being stuck in a cycle, and being unable to leave. The key line isn’t “we won’t stop” or “don’t stop,” it’s “we can’t stop.”

There’s ample evidence in the song that the subject is unhappy. There’s the slowness. There’s the fact that it’s written in a minor key.

 

 

There’s the foreboding, deep, potentially male voice that’s first to sing the refrain (“It’s our party, we can do what we want,” etc.) in the beginning of the song.

There are several lines that also call into question the interpretation that all is right. For instance, while “we came to have so much fun now,” clearly they have not. How do we know this? Well, they’re “not ready to go home” for starters.

And of course, they can’t stop. 

miley cyrus we can't stop

This song is distinctly different from a similar song — on paper at least — “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha. Both are about getting ready for a party, then going to that party, then articulating the intention to continue with the party until dawn.

However, contrast the tempos, and the inflection of the core credo. Ke$ha rallies the troops with “Don’t stop, make it pop, DJ blow my speakers up tonight, Im’ma fight, ’til we see the sunlight!”

miley cyrus we can't stop

 

Miley? “We can’t stop, we won’t stop,” she drones. “We run things, things don’t run we,” she insists.

So why the difference between the hedonist anthems?

 

The drug use in Cyrus’ song is more than an oblique reference to MDMA, or “molly,” and forms a central theme. “Everyone in line in the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom” is clearly about doing lines in the bathroom.

The line “can’t you see it’s we who own the night” is also rather interesting, as the phrase “we own the night” was used by the NYPD in the 1980s to publicize their anti-drug efforts.

And while normally casual designer drug use would be a crucial part of any self-respecting party anthem in this day and age, the inflection is mechanical, and the repetition of the song itself conveys a cycle. A cycle they, yes, can’t stop.

miley cyrus we can't stop

Because here’s the thing about Molly (MDMA): The drug brings about a euphoric feeling by increasing the presence of three neurotransmitters, dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.

These are the chemicals that, for all intents and purposes, make you feel happy.

MDMA makes these three neurotransmitters release in your brain, and then prevents them from being absorbed back.

Since they’re just hanging out in your brain, you feel happy for the entire course of the drug as they’re released and prevented from being removed from the system.

miley cyrus we can't stop

But, you don’t have an infinite supply of them.

When you deplete serotonin, it takes a while to get back to normal serotonin levels.

As a result, regular MDMA abusers get serotonin hangovers several days later, because they have actually run out of the brain molecule that makes them feel happy.

This results in difficulty concentrating, fatigue, emotional exhaustion, sleep disturbance, low to no self esteem and social withdrawal.

In order to get out of this, some addicts might take MDMA again, in order to draw from the reservoir and get back on top, but this is robbing Peter to pay Paul when it comes to serotonin.

This is what “We Can’t Stop” is about, because once this cycle stops, the facade will be over.

The narrator will have to endure the dissolution of the party.

miley cyrus we can't stop

Worst of all, the narrator will have to bounce back without the use of the drug.

And if you don’t believe it, just watch the video.

While generally speaking the video should be considered a separate work from the song itself, here the video only bolsters our perspective.

It’s permeated by a sense of foreboding, designed to make the viewer ill at ease, and full of potent imagery that is anything but fulfilling.

An unhappy man devours a money sandwich, remaining unsatisfied.

It’s one of the most literal articulations of un-fulfilling monetary consumption in recent memory.

miley cyrus we can't stopThere’s the imagery of self harm — a skull is crushed beneath a boot, and someone slowly, gingerly cuts off their fingers about the knuckles. Happy people don’t do that.

Miley, at one point, is in a swimming pool full of attractive young twenty-somethings straight out of central casting. Whom does Miley gravitate to?

Well it’s a plastic, unrealistic puppet, an internally dead thing that’s easily manipulated and doesn’t say no.

But in the middle of the video, you see the most potent symbol of the entire song.

You see a series of taxidermied animals.

miley cyrus we can't stop

One animal is placed in front of a mirror, an effect which makes it appear that the animal is not really alone, that’s it’s supported by a circle of understanding, identical companions. But it’s not. It’s alone.

The line of the song that this occurs during, for what it’s worth, is “Forget the haters, because somebody loves us.”

By they way, it’s wearing sunglasses — Miley’s sunglasses — to hide its dead eyes.  

One animal is dragged on a cart, forced into motion.

Lastly, the first animal is cradled by Miley as she walks to “the line for the bathroom, trying to get a line in the bathroom,” as she stares directly into the camera.

miley cyrus we can't stop

Because here’s the interesting thing about taxidermied animals …

They’re vivacious, vibrant, realistic on the outside, set into a “natural” pose designed, just for a second, for the person not looking too closely, to convey that the animal is alive, behaving as it normally would.

But really, the animal is dead, gutted, and stuffed on the inside, and only preserved from rot thanks to a multitude of chemicals.

That’s what “We can’t stop” is about. 

As noted before, the song starts with a deep, ominous male voice repeating “It’s our party we can do what we want,” but the voice could easily be Miley’s just slowed down with computers, projected years into the future, when she’s still stuck in the club and totally exhausted.

What do we know? The State of America’s Visual IQ


What do we know? The State of America’s Visual IQ

Once upon a time, the role of the teacher in the classroom conjured up images and ideas of blackboards, rulers, chalk, and pencils. But now, technology is becoming more and more integrated into modern school systems—not just as an added bonus, but as a necessity to how students learn and how teachers teach. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. From smartboards to class computers to e-readers and e-textbooks, each new technology presents new modes of both teaching and learning opportunities. Now, every day teachers with tech access are finding new ways to embrace technology and incorporate it into the classroom. As a result, teachers are more efficient than ever, and students are capable of learning faster and more efficiently. In fact, a majority of students say that technology has helped them to achieve their academic goals, while a majority of teachers say they would like to use even more technology in the classroom. The following infographic looks into the tech-teaching phenomenon, and why teachers love it so much.

The award winning Jersey Boys, The Musical – is a Must watch for everyone!


IT’S JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!

SMASH HIT MUSICAL, JERSEY BOYS MAKES ITS SINGAPORE DEBUT AT MARINA BAY SANDS!

JB A4 FA

Wait no more, Singapore. The runaway worldwide smash hit musical, JERSEY BOYS currently playing in major cities worldwide including New York, Las Vegas, London, Auckland, Brisbane and across USA, makes its Singapore premiere at the Sands Theater, Mastercard Theaters at Marina Bay Sands for a 14-week season.

This multi-award winning musical tells the true real-life story of how four poverty-line kids from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records globally – all before they were thirty!

 
JB FINALE


The Four Seasons? Frankie Valli? These names may not be instantly recognisable but for generations since the early ‘60’s to modern day the unique sounds of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are often echoed with responses such as “I know that number!” when familiarity and recognition of the band’s hit songs such as Sherry, Walk like a Man, Rag Doll, Oh What a Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, kicks in. These and numerous other Four Seasons songs have been covered by many of today’s pop artists, proving the diverse appeal and appreciation of this music as it lives on through the generations.

Milan Rokic, Managing Director of BASE Entertainment Asia said, “Singapore will be the first Asian city to experience this powerful piece of International theater with extraordinary music and a real life story line. We are extremely excited to be involved in producing this Broadway version of JERSEY BOYS for Asia. It runs at breath-taking pace and audiences will be left wanting to come back for more. This is an evening of exceptional entertainment.”

PageTBC_Frankie(Grant)_Additional

JERSEY BOYS opened to critical and popular acclaim on Broadway on 6 November 2005 only to break this theatre’s box office record 30 times! The production has since been seen by over 13 million people across the globe. Critics the world over are saying: “Too good to be true!” raves New York Post, “The Crowd Goes Wild” explains the New York Times, “Best Broadway Musical in Years” says BBC Radio2, “Mesmerising – a Seismic Sensation” from the Los Angeles Times, “the wait has definitely been worthwhile … Jersey Boys promises a good night and it delivers … you will regret missing out!” urges Courier Mail, Brisbane.

Mr. George Tanasijevich, President & Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands said, “We are delighted that Jersey Boys, one of the most exciting musicals of all time, will make its debut at Marina Bay Sands. Jersey Boys complements the many other successful Broadway style shows we have brought to Singapore as part of our ongoing commitment to making Marina Bay Sands Asia’s best destination for business, leisure and entertainment.”

Jersey Boys is also the first show to premiere at the newly renamed MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, which has just been included within the Mastercard Priceless Cities program, further elevating Singapore and the integrated resort in the world of entertainment. Under the program, the Mastercard Theatres will provide cardholders exclusive experiences and privileged access to the best shows and Broadway productions showcased at Marina Bay Sands.

JERSEY BOYS is written by Academy Award-winner Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and is directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo with music direction, vocal arrangements and incidental music by Ron Melrose. The production design team is Klara Zieglerova, Scenic Designer; Jess Goldstein, Costume Designer; Howell Binkley, Lighting Designer and Michael Clark, Projection Designer.

The remarkable aspect about this company is they begin rehearsing in Johannesburg and then finalise on-stage preparations in Singapore where the show first opens internationally at Marina Bay Sands today for a 14 week season before returning to South Africa to premier in April 2013, followed by a season in Cape Town and future Asian territories.

JERSEY BOYS is presented by Dodger Theatricals, Base Entertainment, Showtime Management, Joseph J. Grano Tamara and Kevin Kinsella Pelican Group in association with Latitude Link Rick Steiner.
