Hardy Caprio, Skrapz & Blade Brown – Green Light


No Comments

Two eras of UK rap collide on our brand new single “Green Light”, as Hardy Caprio, Skrapz and Blade Brown join forces.


Over a chilling and moody instrumental from Jay Weathers and AoD, Hollywood Hards lays down a chorus that may surprise some fans, straight up singing his way across the track with some sweet thug realness. It was only right that two veterans in the scene addd their two pence to the track too, even providing some unexpected melodies of their own. The new visuals fit the tone perfectly and come courtesy of director LX.

FIFA 19 EA SPORTS LIMITED EDITION JERSEYS


No Comments

EA Sports and adidas have unveiled all new custom kits for Manchester United, Juventus, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich for use on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team.

The jerseys are all fresh, creative takes on these four giants’ existing designs, providing a unique experience for fans. And, to add to the excitement, fans can also buy each of these shirts in real life via their club’s stores.

The bold new designs were announced through a video with ​Paulo Dybala, Marcelo, David Alaba and ​Jesse Lingard all sporting their respective threads.

​United‘s is perhaps the most off-piste of the designs, utilising a lime green/yellow leopard print on a black background. According to the developers: “The limited-edition kit was born from fashion and inspired by street trends right from the heart of Manchester.

“The leopard print design is as progressive, innovative and bold as the Manchester United squad and allows players to be a game changer on the pitch or online.”

 ​I Bianconeri‘s on the other hand, is the most simple of the creations, although it does belie that nickname by opting for an all white top, with the only black to be seen on the collar.

For both, the badges are centralised, as is the case with ​Bayern‘s. The Bundesliga team are represented with a much more ‘out there’ pattern, and was conceived as “a celebration of FC Bayern’s team of stars and their status as ‘Stern des Südens’.”

In a similar fashion, and living up to their ‘Galactico’ associations, Real Madrid have these same stars dotted around their’s, imposed on a dark blue background “reflecting the Madrid night sky, paying homage to a club which is full of stars that are blessed with skills from another planet.”

All four of the tops have the adidas logo imprinted at the centre of the collar, and are available on each of the club’s online stores now, as well as on the ​adidas website.

The digital versions are available on the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC customers on November 29th , while Nintendo Switch users will have to wait until December 14th.

We Are The Arsenal – Arsenal 2018-19


No Comments

Arsenal have unveiled their home kit for the 2018/19 season. Puma are once again behind the design of the kit, introducing a red stripe across the white sleeves as well as a “pulse” pattern on the chest.

Arsenal launched the new look with a promotional video on their official Twitter account accompanied by the hashtag #WeAreTheArsenal. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all featured.

This could be the last year Arsenal don a Puma-designed kit, who have designed the club’s shirts since 2014, with the club tipped to seal a new multi-million deal with Adidas for the 2019/20 season onwards.

Petr Cech will take on the No 1 shirt, with Hector Bellerin and Mohamed Elneny wearing No 2 and No 4 respectively. Granit Xhaka will also wear his favoured No 34 shirt after wearing No 29 since his arrival at the club in 2016.

Arsenal’s new kit will go on sale from Friday 1 June.

Investigation Discovery Ident


No Comments
There are two sides to every story. This split-screen series of idents, airing in 140 territories, reveal two angles of a crime scene and invite the viewer over repeat viewings to piece together the clues.
This series of idents invite you into the twisted ID world: making you analyse and question everything they see. With each scenario, there is a plausible explanation: maybe that car has just run out of petrol; maybe someone is going to return with more grocery bags at that open front door. But take a closer look, maybe it’s not so simple…
Unlike any other genre, ‘crime’ is defined by its dualities (good/evil, guilty/innocent, suspect/victim, etc). These idents showcase two angles of a crime scene using spit screen. A 15 degree image spit references the angle on which the channel logo sits, and subtly brands the imagery ahead of a final logo resolve. The overall effect pieces together multiple aspects of the crime to uncover the truth.

Jade Bird – Lottery


1 Comment

“Lottery” follows the 2017 release of Bird’s debut EP, Something American — an aptly titled release, as Bird’s material often finds its way into the Americana vein of music popularized across the pond, with Loretta Lynn one of her many obvious touchstones. Bird says “Lottery” was produced with the same group (Simone Felice and David Baron) that helmed Something American and that she’s soon looking to “release an album, which I’ve got a concept for,” in the near future.

The song, which received early airplay on multiple Triple A radio stations in the United States upon its Jan. 11 release, led by Sirius XM Radio’s The Spectrum station. It’s not Bird’s first foray onto American radio; Something American‘s “Cathedral” also received some airplay across the U.S. Appreciative of the support so far, Bird chalks her early success up in part to her material being “honest, and the common thread through it is very much being who I am: kind of a young, ballsy teenager who wants to do something a little bit differently.”
