Craig Padilla And Marvin Allen Collaborate On Toward The Horizon, A New Album On Spotted Peccary Music

Published

on

Spotted Peccary Music announces the release of Toward the Horizon, an album by internationally-celebrated and award-winning electronic music artist Craig Padilla and multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, performer, and music educator Marvin Allen.

Working together for the first time, these two skilled musicians have crafted a masterful free-flowing dreamscape that moves through a myriad of moods, revealing the many colors of an ever-changing sonic skyline. Melodic and rhythmic, surreal and drifting, the resulting music is a timeless adventure through illuminating guitar tonalities and majestic synthesizer vistas. Visit Spotted Peccary for more listening and purchase options (https://spottedpeccary.com/shop/toward-the-horizon/).

Toward The Horizon is a recording project that began as a minor musical experiment and quickly blossomed into an alluring album that perfectly synthesizes the talents of two long-time friends who are finally collaborating for the first time. Padilla explains, “I’ve known Marvin since 1990 and I’ve always wanted to make music with him, but we’ve been traveling our own paths since then and never had a proper chance to collaborate until now. We began by riding the waves of inspiration and following our creativity to see where it would lead us.”

Electronic, ambient and rock music fans will thoroughly appreciate the resulting explosive melodies, classic Berlin school sequencing, and haunting ambient soundscapes. Allen uses Strymon Effects on his guitar, and all of the synthesizer parts on “Distant Waves” were created using only a modular synthesizer that was designed by legendary synth builder George Mattson. Padilla muses on the recording process, “On Hidden Marvin played a rippin’ guitar solo, and when he finished he said ‘Reverse that, throw some reverb and any other magic on it and see how it sounds.'”

The process clearly worked. Toward The Horizon is spacemusic in every sense. Hypnotic, captivating, dreamy, and vivid, the music drifts from electronic soundscapes to atmospheric textures, at times swirling and spinning through dazzling sequences and epic soaring refrains. The song “Tidal Disruption” suggests strange, beautiful mountains touching silver seas, while “Liquid Heaven” could be the essential exploration of those same mysterious empyrean waters. One’s imagination is inspired to wander.

With more than 40 releases over the course of his prolific career, Padilla has become a driving force in the electronic music scene. His music is regularly heard on XM Satellite Radio and radio stations throughout the US, including the celebrated radio programs “Echoes” and “Hearts of Space.” This is Allen’s first foray into the world of ambient electronic music; he is an established Northern California based multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, performer, and music educator.

Toward The Horizon releases February 22, 2019 on Spotted Peccary Music in both physical and digital formats, as well as 24-bit Audiophile format.

Boosie Badazz Sprinter Van Shot Up In Dallas

Hip Hop Bling Jewelry

Recently a shooting took place in the parking lot of Bit T’s in Dallas Texas where Boosie Badazz’s sprinter van was reportedly located. Different accounts are coming to different conclusions – some are saying Boosie’s van was the specific target of the attack, while others swear that he was just in the area. When you want friends and foes alike to know you’re in the area, upgrade your shine with a fresh iced out piece from HipHopBling.com, the premier provider of high end hip hop jewelry online.

Thusfar there hasn’t been a confirmation one way or another from Boosie’s Team – No Jumper and Dirty Glove Bastard have claimed that Boosie was struck in the leg, however Boosie shared a commemoration of his birthday on Instagram, without any mention of the shooting.

It is actually Boosie’s birthday as well. Boosie was in Dallas for both his 38th birthday, and a candle lit vigil for his friend and collaborator MO3, whom was recently shot and killed. There’s currently an ongoing investigation, but not much has yet been found.

Lil Uzi Vert And Lil Xan Will Not Be Working With Each Other Anytime Soon

Published

on

By

This year has been a busy year for Vert, whom this year alone dropped two projects: Eternal Atake and Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World Pt. 2. Most people consider the latter a Plat version of EA, but Vert wasn’t stopped there. He hooked up with Future in the studio for Pluto x Baby Pluto, and it truly looks like all his hard work is paying off for him in a big way. If you’re looking for fresh new jewelry that will show up in a big way, head over to HipHopBling.com for your own custom jewelry

While fans have been eating his projects up, they’ve also been vocal about wanting him to return to his old sound. Lil Uzi Vert may be doing just that though – hitting up Twitter, Vert mentioned that he thinks it’s just about time to return to his mumbling ways. Lil Xan saw this and shot his shot, and mentioned that he’d be down to mumble alongside him. 

Lil Uzi Vert let him down in possibly the kindest way possible – “I mumble alone,” he said, with a heartbreak emoji. 

Some fans who saw the exchange were absolutely furious, convinced that Vert had just dissed their boy Xan. The exchange was quickly taken down from Twitter, but not before they had a chance to screenshot the entire thread. 

While it’s clear that we’re not going to see any Xan and Vert collab anytime soon, at least we can look forward to a return to form for Lil Uzi Vert.

Future, 2 Chainz And Lil Uzi Vert Run “Fire Emoji” Playlist

Published

By

Sooner than later publications will begin to reveal their “Best Of’s” as 2020 draws to a close. This year has been tumulus, however many would argue that this year has forced artists to become more creative than ever before. This week alone has seen several high profile drops and it makes sense to add them to this week’s Fire Emoji playlist. If you’re looking for some fire jewelry, customize your own merch for this holiday season by heading over to HipHopBling.com

Both Future and Lil Uzi Vert have been hinting at a project together for a hot minute – this month they finally delivered the fire with Pluto x Baby Pluto. With 2 Chainz So Help Me God having just dropped, we’re finally able to listen to some of those bars – including “Feel A Way” with Kanye West and Brent Faiyaz. 

With the prison drop of Kodak Black’s Bill Israel and the anticipated Rich the Kid and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s collaboration, “Automatic” had to be added to the list. Peep it below for yourself and tell us what you think.
