Sony/Meg artist Que Williams is back"


There is a noticeable difference between today’s R&B and the music of the past. Once upon a time, great vocalists like Michael, Gerald, Luther and Keith had passion in their music. They had romance. The music made love. I ran across Sony/MEG artist Que Williams and I haven't looked back since. Bringing a new flavor to R & B, Que adds in neo-soul, trap and eclectic tunes to his music. ...

Born Miguel Jontel Pimentel to an African-American mother and a Mexican father in the Southern California harbor town of San Pedro, he says reading the book The Four Agreements, by spiritualist Mexican author don Miguel Ruiz, was a turning point. Ruiz’s theory is that most of our emotional struggles come from beliefs about ourselves that were assigned to us by our parents, our peers or society. Miguel says the book made it easier for him to question what he “should” sound like or look like, even if it confounded record label marketing execs. “The book was super pivotal for me,” Miguel says. “It’s so simple that it’s profound.”

He decided to go grass roots. Taking cues from hip-hop mixtape culture and the indie DIY tradition, he self-released a three-EP series called Art Dealer Chic, unveiling some of the music that would later be featured on Kaleidoscope Dream, including “Adorn,” which he recorded in his bedroom. “If you look at art dealers historically, they were kind of in control of what was making an impact culturally,” he says about the project. “This was my own anti-establishment way of saying, ‘F*ck you, I am my own business. I decide what is good and what is not,’” he says. “I wanted to reconnect to my peers, the people that I hang out with, the ones that go to the same bars, listen to the same music, look at the same blogs, will be at that art gallery, will be at that show. Those people, the ones that I wasn’t touching before, finally I had their attention.” The EP series, the second batch of which will start coming out in July, did help him connect with the indie set, who were, lucky for him, high on other avant-R&B artists like Frank Ocean and The Weeknd at the time. Art Dealer Chic also scored Miguel the brass ring of the indie industry — a positive review on Pitchfork. “It’s like a love-hate relationship,” he says of the music journalists who have both exalted him and dismissed him as R&B schlock. “It’s like they’re kind of f*cking with me, but kind of not.” (Pitchfork’s review of Kaleidoscope Dream coolly called Miguel’s lyrics “the stuff of unbearable rom-com montages,” though the album scored a rating of 8.4 out of 10.)”

Burberry’s remix of 1950s British bohemianism for spring/summer 2014 menswear

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Burberry’s remix of 1950s British bohemianism for spring/summer 2014 menswear

 

 

Everything was looser, more relaxed, and less raddled with fraught synthetic detail. Burberry’s touchstone trench was only lightly referenced in an opening look khaki coat made of featherlight cashmere jersey. There were sailing souwesters, patch pocketed artists coats, flashes of gingham and floral print and loose necked hoodies in lustrous materials. Instead of big studded statement bags there were paper-soft leather duffles slung by leather cord over the models’ shoulders. The strongest coup de theatre in this thoughtful collection was provided by zingy colour used sparingly. As Bailey said afterwards: “I wanted it to be joyous with a lot of colour. But if you break it down it’s easy colour; a neutral base with either a bit of colour in your shirt or your shoes or your glasses or your bags. I hope it was something that felt very wearable.”
