Kanye West is yet to take a step-back in 2018 with three solo projects and six albums altogether, including those he’s produced and worked on, under his belt this year alone. It’s been a busy time for the rapper having only just released solo project Ye back in June and a number of collaborations since, including Kid Cudi on Kids See Ghosts and a speculated joint-venture with Chance The Rapper. With new album Yhandi on the way, here's everything you need to know: What do we know about the new album so far? Yandhi is largely speculated as being a follow-up to West’s 2013 album Yeezus and will be West’s ninth studio album. The 41-year-old teased the release on Twitter, sharing an image of a MiniDisc mimicking the exact format of the Yeezus cover.

Published August 9, 2018 The trademark of Ólafur Arnald’s music can best be described in the feelings it evokes: stirring, emotional, and perfect in its simplicity. With delicate piano, poised string arrangements and a deft understanding of drama, his work merges the traditions of classical music with contemporary trends. The other trademark of his career has undoubtedly been ambition. Never content to sit in any one box, Ólafur has continually pushed himself with unusual collaborations and thoughtful concepts. He’s been a rock drummer, become a techno star, won a TV soundtrack BAFTA, and in November, he even sent one of his compositions to space. The culmination of his talent and drive will come in the widely-anticipated release of his album ‘re:member’ on August 28th.

Beyoncé has gone and done it again, dropping yet another surprise album on Saturday night, this time a joint effort with husband Jay-Z. The couple - currently on their ‘On The Run II’ world tour - have just released their first ever full album together, ‘EVERYTHING IS LOVE’, which appears to put the marital drama outlined on ‘Lemonade’ and ‘4:44’ behind them once and for all.

Wear snow boots. If I could offer you only one tip for enjoying your time at winter music festival Snowboxx, snow boots would be it. As temperatures plummeted to a beer-freezing -20 while half of UK duo Snakehips blasted out their signature electro on the mountain-top Snowboxx mainstage, I have never felt more smug than when raving the night away in my brand new, waterproof, fur-lined pair purchased just that afternoon. The days preceding had been a different story. Nestled in the picture-postcard French Alps resort of Avoriaz, Snowboxx is one of the few winter festivals that truly delivers on its snowy promises. This is not a town-based music festival that just so happens to have skiing nearby but literally has its diverse stages and venues dotted across the slopes. The only downside to having snow perpetually underfoot is that a pair of Nikes or patent Doc Martin’s or your usual clubbing footwear are not going to cut it. Cue my emergency snow boot purchase. No one wants … [Read more...] about Snowboxx festival 2018 review, Avoiraz, France: A cut above the rest
