HIP Video Promo: WHYYOUNGN takes us to the subway in "D A R L E N E" video premiering on The Hype Magazine

Brooklyn rapper WHYYOUNGN shoots most of "D A R L E N E" in a subway station, and he's done that to make sure you know: he's a representative of the city.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE HYPE MAGAZINE: Premiere: WHYYOUNGN “D A R L E N E”

Few things are things as quintessentially New York as hardcore lyrical hip-hop. The MTA might be one of them. The New York subway has a distinct look and feel: one shot of those tiled pillars and that distinctive iconography, and you'll know exactly what you're looking at. Brooklyn rapper WHYYOUNGN shoots most of the video for "D A R L E N E" in a subway station, and he's done that for a reason. He's aligning himself with the city at its most elemental — its sinews, veins, and fundamental rhythms. He's a representative of the city, and he's making sure you know.

He's also vigorously waving the flag for his borough. In "D A R L E N E," he shouts out the Grand Army Plaza: a transportation nexus, the beating heart of Brooklyn, and the buckle that cinches the rougher neighborhoods south of Prospect Park to the wealthier enclaves to the north. WHYYOUNGN straddles all of those divides, and every time he rhymes, he reminds listeners of the fundamental unity of New York hip-hop and the long and storied tradition of the genre. "D A R L E N E" is a minute and forty seconds of tight, relentless, irresistible rhyme, matched to a spare but hard-hitting beat. Like a subway train, it rumbles by with force, authority, and no small amount of menace — and it's gone before you know it, so catch it if you can.

"D A R L E N E" comes right on the heels of the incendiary "Hip-Hop Booty," a summer single that earned WHYYOUNGN plenty of airplay on BET Jams, respect from his peers and the music press, and the deep appreciation of a New York rap audience that demands the best from emcees. The "Hip-Hop Booty" video caught WHYYOUNGN in action on the pavement outside the Barclays Center, comfortable and commanding, looking as much a part of the streetscape as the bodegas and traffic lights. For the new clip, he's descended into the tunnels beneath the Grand Army Plaza, and he's rapping under the fluorescent lights of one of Brooklyn's most storied stations. He gives us the silver turnstiles, the black iron grates, the wooden seats, the MetroCard booths, the wall art, and the transit police hovering on the streets above the station. In one memorable shot, he stands in front of the subway map as if he's part of it – as if he's a piece of the city's geography and history. And as a living link to the ongoing story of hip-hop in New York, that's exactly what he is.

HIP Video Promo presents: Summer Rain wants you to fall in love with "Let Me Tell You" video on XS Noize

"Let Me Tell You" is a warm embrace of the urgency of now and being in the moment, even if what lies ahead is unclear.

NANAIMO, BC, CANADA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — XS NOIZE VIDEO PREMIERE: Summer Rain – Let Me Tell You

They say that where you're from shapes who you are. Hailing from Qualicum Beach in Vancouver Island, where the average population for the town is 65 years old, Summer Rain has been endlessly inspired by old-school music while maintaining a youthful and relatable discography. Bandmates Will McLelland (guitar, vocals), Josh Beausoleil (bass, vocals), and Logan Hale (drums) have managed to capture the attention of millions with their hits like "South of the Border" and "Hold Her Hand," both an eclectic mix of folk and indie rock. Every song is a beautiful collaboration between each member's strengths, from sweet vocals to groovy guitar and drums. Summer Rain teaches us to not to take ourselves too seriously.

Falling in love is a whirlwind of fleeting euphoria and feelings of invincibility. It can have you wanting to shout it from the rooftops. "Let Me Tell You" is a warm embrace of the urgency of now and being in the moment, even if what lies ahead is unclear. With heartfelt guitar strums and a steady drumbeat, Will Mclelland's voice melts into the timeless instrumentals.

The video portrays a dream-like state where everything is random and nothing seems to make sense, which serves as a metaphor for the uncertainty and confusion of modern relationships. As the guitar plucks pick up the rhythm, Will faces the woman he adores, and they drown into each other's arms in a hug. At the end of it all, the random confusion subsides and the couple are left to face the world together. Rediscover the joys of youthfulness and the complicated, fuzzy feeling of romance in "Let Me Tell You."

Les Éditions 23 sont fières d'annoncer une soirée exceptionnel pour redécouvrir les plus grands chefs-d'œuvre du compositeur d'Un Homme et une Femme : Francis Lai Story.

Surnommé par les Américains « l'aristocrate de la mélodie », Francis Lai a joué avec Edith Piaf et Mireille Mathieu, avant de devenir le compositeur officiel de Claude Lelouch et de travailler avec de grands réalisateurs comme Terence Young, Henri Verneuil et Dino Risi. Impossible de compter le nombre d'artistes célèbres qui ont interprété ses compositions au fil des ans : Elton John, Petula Clark, Johnny Hallyday, Serge Reggiani, Charles Aznavour, Yves Montand, Nana Mouskouri, Françoise Hardy, pour n'en citer que quelques-uns. Il a reçu de nombreux prix, remportant l'Oscar de la meilleure bande originale pour "Love Story" ainsi qu’un Golden Globe et de très nombreuses récompenses.

Ce concert exceptionnel, interprété par le Francis Lai Orchestra, invite le public à découvrir l'univers de Francis Lai, qui a composé pour plus d'une centaine de films et plus de 600 chansons. L'ambassadeur du romantisme français qui, malgré un palmarès impressionnant de distinctions et récompenses, est toujours resté humble, même s’il détient toujours le record d'albums vendus à l'étranger pour un compositeur français avec notamment Love Story, Itinéraire d'un Enfant Gâté, Un Homme et Une Femme, Bilitis, Les Etoiles du Cinéma, Les Uns & Les autres.

Francis Lai Story, un spectacle unique avec des invités de surprise à ne pas manquer. L'événement mettra à l'honneur le piano de Jacky Delance, l'accordéon de Jacques Ferchit, la basse de Tony Bonfils et la guitare de Jacky Tricoire (éternels partenaires de Francis Lai) ainsi l'équipe de cuivres Fred Couderc et les cordes d’Antonin André Requena, soit plus d’une vingtaine de musiciens entourés de 7 chanteurs.

Le Grand Rex accueillera les musiciens les plus exceptionnels de l’hexagone afin de rendre hommage à l'un des plus grands compositeurs français. Claude Lelouch ouvrira la soirée en rednant hommage à son compositeur préféré et présentera l'interprète originale du titre mythique "Un Homme et une Femme", qui a fait le tour du monde : Nicole Croisille.

Sera aussi présent le dernier artiste ayant collaboré avec Francis Lai : Calogero, le chanteur qui a travaillé avec le regretté compositeur sur le dernier morceau qu'il a enregistré. Mais aussi la célèbre violoniste japonaise Reina Kitada, la chanteuse américaine Lexie Kendrick, les chanteuses françaises Anne Sila, Katia Plachez, Irene Roussel et l'actrice Elsa Zylberstein sont attendus, ainsi que les interprètes du duo franco-américain The French Mademoiselles qui viendront rendre hommage à l'homme qui a commencé sa carrière dans les collines de Nice pour arriver sur les collines d'Hollywood. Le concert sera immortalisé dans une vidéo destinée à être diffusée dans le monde entier pour les nombreux fans de Francis Lai sur tous les continents, notamment aux USA, en Amérique du Sud et au Japon.

À propos de Francis Lai

Francis Lai est né le 26 avril 1932 à Nice. Très tôt, passionné de musique, il crée ses premières gammes dans un orchestre local. A Marseille, il entend d'abord le jazz et rencontre Claude Goaty, chanteur populaire des années 50, qu'il suivra à Paris pour découvrir Montmartre, où il s'installe. Ici, dans ce lieu fourmillant d'idées et de mouvements artistiques divers, il rencontre les hommes et les femmes avec lesquels il développera son travail.
Francis Lai a écrit la musique de plus de 100 films et composé les mélodies de plus de 600 chansons. La plupart des stars des années 60,70 et 80 (Elton John, Tom John, DElla Fitzgerald, etc) ont pu chanter ses chansons et les plus grands orchestres internationaux ont enregistré ses musiques. À ce jour, il reste l'un des compositeurs les plus joué sur la planète. Homme discret, timide et très humble, Francis Lai n'en reste pas moins le compositeur français de musiques de films qui a vendu le plus grand nombre de disques à travers le monde. À titre d'exemples : Un Homme et une Femme 5.000.000 exemplaires, Vivre pour Vivre 2.000.000 exemplaires, Love Story 6.000.000 disques vendus, Emmanuelle II 1.000.000 exemplaires, Les Uns et les Autres 2.000.000 et Bilitis avec 7 millions de disques vendus !

Son travail est reconnu dans le monde entier, et en 1970, il reçoit le prix le plus prestigieux : un Oscar à Hollywood pour la musique du film « Love Story ». Marié au mannequin Dagmar Puetz, il est père de trois enfants (Frédéric, Olivier, Laura). Francis Lai a également été l'un des pionniers dans la recherche de sons synthétiques et dans l'utilisation de l'informatique musicale. Ces œuvres sont aujourd'hui samplées par des groupes de rap américain, de pop britannique et de techno européenne, dont il est l'une des influences les plus fiables.

Jazz Trumpeter W. Lee Hogans Joins Prestigious Harlem School of the Arts as Chief Education Officer

The 57-year-old arts institution continues to be a magnate for the best professional teaching artists

“Lee is not only a gifted musician in his own right, but he is passionate about inspiring young people, especially those from underrepresented communities and those with special needs." ”

— Eric Pryor, President, Harlem School of the Arts

HARLEM, NEW YORK, USA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The prestigious Harlem School of the Arts (HSA), located in the historic Harlem community, is proud to announce the addition of jazz trumpeter W. Lee Hogans, who joins the organization’s staff as Chief Education Officer. Mr. Hogans is best known as a world-class performing and touring jazz artist, as well as a noted music educator. In his career as a musician, he has worked with some of the most celebrated and respected music personalities and performing artists including Prince and Jay-Z, the super talented singer/songwriter, rapper Lauryn Hill, singer Jill Scott, saxophonist Maceo Parker, Grammy Award Winning Bassist, Marcus Miller, as well as comedian Dave Chappelle, to name a few.

Over the past 20 years, Mr. Hogans has been an educator, and administrator with broad experience developing programs for the elementary, middle school, high school, and college levels. He has taught Jazz and Music Production and has led jazz bands in urban and suburban settings. Most recently, Lee was the Director of Education at Jazz House Kids in New Jersey where he oversaw curriculum and instruction for out-of-school, summer, and community jazz programs. He brings this eclectic background and breadth of experience to the 57-year-old institution.

“I had been walking past HSA ever since my wife and I moved into Harlem with our young son three-and-a-half years ago, and eventually I began developing a relationship with the organization. I have been struck by the quality of the training young people receive in all four arts disciplines within this welcoming environment. I am so excited to be a part of the legacy begun by Ms. Dorothy Maynor, and to bring my knowledge to the table to help enhance the organization’s growth and commitment to the community, its children, and families,” said Mr. Hogans.

As Chief Education Officer, Mr. Hogans will shoulder a great deal of responsibility as an advocate for the arts and artists. In summary, Mr. Hogans will oversee the educational integrity of programs and explore ways to expand the instructional content and curriculum standards in all four disciplines offered at HSA, as well as off-site at partner schools. Additionally, he will build opportunities that serve and support the artist community in Harlem and surrounding areas; strengthen and advance HSA’s educational and community partnerships and measure the impact that this cultural hub has on the young people attending, their families, and the community in which it sits.

Eric Pryor, President of HSA said, “Lee is not only a gifted musician in his own right, but he is passionate about inspiring young people, especially those from underrepresented communities and those with special needs. Just like our founder Dorothy Maynor, Lee believes that the arts are a right, not a privilege. His values and ideals are in perfect sync with that of our organization’s and we are pleased to welcome him on board.”

In The World Of Hate among Countries, Three Artists Kaki Singer, Jaybird, and Parham Chose to Spread Love rather than Hate With their track 'Jaane Na Dena'.

It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”

— Audre Lorde

MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hatred has consistently discovered its direction into individuals' activities, profound covered inside their cerebrum, framed from the activities that they once suffered however love does as well. Little words right?

Words molded by four letters yet so exceptional; one prompts congruity and one to limitless contentions. Comparative exercises can incite the two sentiments, then, how might we pick? Is it perspective, is it one's capacity to fathom or is it some unique choice from these? We don't have even the remotest clue.

Regardless, one thing that is for certain is it has reliably been a choice. A genuinely inconvenient one I should say that might make your life altogether more miserable than it at this point is by and by regardless, it's a choice.

These last two three years have been difficult for the world to manage, from COVID's outrage to bearing 'scorn' that made people attack countries.

We all are imagined interesting, as, in different religions, various complexions, different countries, and this qualification need to incite limitless discussions, every so often provoking conflicts. Could there be potential for agreement and love in these conditions? This one is obscure know also.

Be that as it may, a glimmer of light has been seen, a bit of trust, and Hope has been found in Music.

Around many tunes that we focus on reliably and around hundreds that the world catches each day, This one must be the particular tune that got the spotlight, honestly, more than the genuine tune what amazed audience members more was people behind the scenes.

A track named 'Jaane Na Dena', it's a fundamental Hindi horrid love song yet the people behind are the interesting ones. Jaybird and Kaki, two specialists from India living in two extraordinary metropolitan networks made a tune with an Iranian entertainer/arranger "Parham Potki". It's amazing how these three skilled workers sitting across the world made a tune for fondness.

Yet the tune was made out of another manner of thinking of conveying how an individual is endeavoring to say that is he's miserable and debilitate and is following someone to help him.

The tune also makes us comprehend that we as animals of this world are prepared for supporting and understanding the irritation of others.

The real tune communicates the words "tum mujhe rok Lena, Jaane Na Dena" meaning "benevolently don't permit me to leave" and "zikr tera, khwab mera" simply implying "your craving is my desire".

People can choose to treasure others notwithstanding their conditions and differentiations which the skilled workers behind the tune exhibited by making a tune together even with all of their incongruities of them being from different countries, different religions, different insights and adolescence, and different styles of music.

Parham Potki, a nearby of Rasht who has been related with music from when he was 11 by making rap stanza, later learning piano, and thereafter making music. Parham has reliably preferred to work in Hip-Hop, Pop, or R&B music and has given very beautiful tunes in these kinds.

Jaybird (brought into the world as Tushar Shrivastava) from India started his outing with music in his school days, he is a performer/writer and has reliably preferred piece singing Hindi songs and overwhelming in it.

Kaki (casually known as Hema Dangi) is from Udaipur, India, and like Parham started her journey with music first thing. Kaki in her underlying music accounts is seen singing English tunes. Regardless, as a generally pre-arranged craftsman, she has moreover sung some English-Indian old-style blends. However, before 'Jaane Na Dena' Kaki had no true blue Hindi tune of her own.

Regardless of their inconsistencies, as you can see they are all from different sorts and lingos, they decided to make this awesome and enchanting tune.

Kaki and Jaybird are the first craftsmen of Talentsofworld which is a worldwide stage for experts to show their capacity, so recognition to them in light of the fact that these two experts met through Talentsofworld, which Parham also joined in a little while.

It was the initial time for Parham to be working with Indian performers in the Indian language and tongue. For Kaki it was also the underlying chance to make a power Hindi tune.

Jaybird was the individual who at first started the tune and gave the words for this dazzling creation, in any case, the credit similarly goes to Manish Lohani, the lyricist of this fantastic tune who made the tune close by Jaybird. Then, comes Kaki in the picture who featured in the song and sang the female refrain for the tune.

The last leftover one to join the track was Parham Potki and on his contribution in working with these two able experts on this tune, Potki said :

"I endeavored to join Indian music with Middle Eastern/Western music and make another environment. The musicality of the tune is rock-based and the song is coordinated and shaped with live instruments. The Indian language of the song helped the agreeableness of the tune take on another overshadowing. It was an incredible experience for me and I think it is a productive work through its own effort"

Completely agreeing with what Parham said, the dazzling differences between the lifestyle and the music are what makes this tune so novel and incredible. For sure with what was being said close to the starting that 'there is reliably a choice, Jaybird, Parham, and Kaki offered the expression. In this period of difficulties, they choose to grant love and congruity to their creation, a song to see the worth in our aberrations and chose to adore and respect the disparities among humanity.

An Open Letter to the House of Lords from a Canadian Physician & Author: Assisted Dying Destroys Hope and Life

Assisted dying destroys hope and leads people to giving up on life.

Physicians are not God. When doctors give a patient a diagnosis, we can be wrong. In fact, errors in diagnosis for severe, life-threatening conditions may be as high as twenty percent.”

— Dr. Paul Saba

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This is an open letter to the House of Lords from Dr. Paul Saba, a Canadian family physician and author of "Made to Live" madetolive.com:
"As the United Kingdom House of Lords debates the legalization of assisted dying, as a family physician from Montreal, Canada, I want to warn the British not to go down this wrong and dangerous road.

When Canada legalized assisted dying in 2016, it was supposed to be for only a “few” terminal illness patients with only days to live. At the end of 2020, over 21,500 Canadians had their lives ended by physician assisted dying. Since March of this year, the law has been further expanded to those with disabilities with years to live and in less than two years those with mental illness will be eligible for assisted dying.

As a doctor, I know just how dangerous it is when killing patients becomes part of the healthcare system. Physicians are not God. When doctors give a patient a diagnosis, we can be wrong. In fact, errors in diagnosis for severe, life-threatening conditions may be as high as twenty percent.

Recently, my patient Jim (pseudonym) came to me with a cough thinking he had a cold. I ordered a chest x-ray. According to the radiologist’s report of the chest film, Jim appeared to have lung cancer. I sat down with Jim and said: “We need to do a scan right away. We need to get you to see a specialist. We need to do a bronchoscopy….”
Jim responded: “Dr. Saba, I know you’re against assisted suicide, but you know what? I don’t necessarily agree with you. If I’m going to die, if my time is up….” I replied, “No, no. You have to go through the process because this is only a preliminary diagnosis. Even if it is lung cancer, it is treatable today. There are new treatments. It may not even be lung cancer.” I spoke to the radiologist who performed the lung scan, who said, “We’re not sure what it is. It appears to be lung cancer but it may be a lymphoma, which would be highly treatable.”

Jim is an intelligent, well-informed man, an engineer, who thought he had a cold, then was told he might have cancer. He could have resigned himself to a medically assisted death before he even knew what we were dealing with, since Canada’s law allows a person to not undergo all investigations necessary to confirm the diagnosis. He could have given up hope while the situation was still filled with hope. The power to move people to give up is one of the dangerous and misleading aspects of medically assisted dying. However, I was able to get his attention and persuade him that the situation was hopeful and that he should get more tests and undergo treatment. In the end, he called me in the summer of 2019 to thank me because there was no further evidence of disease which is still the case today. He had finally been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is a condition that is highly curable with proper medical treatment.

A recent Canadian study found that close to a third of patients with a diagnosis of “lung cancer” who died by assisted suicide did not have a biopsy-proven diagnosis of lung cancer. Moreover, they were less likely to consult with radiation or medical oncologist and less likely to undergo effective treatments. This is what happens when the door is opened to assisted dying. Jim could have been another assisted dying fatality. I am a doctor, who believes medicine must be grounded in solid science, in what research and experience teach us about how the body works and heals.

However, hope is one of the most powerful forces for good medical care. When I say hope is a powerful force for health, I mean that hope counsels us to patience, to seeing processes through, and to regarding every step as part of the great gift of being made for life. Assisted dying destroys that hope and leads people to giving up on life."
