Exclusive: Janelle Kroll x Pharrell/ “Happy”

Janelle+Kroll+NEOREVIVALIST

Singer/Songwriter Janelle Kroll

Pharrell’s “Happy” has never sounded so good to me. I have no qualms in admitting my recent disdain for that song, due to its over-saturation throughout the UNIVERSE. With that being said, of ALL the remixes and cover of this “instant classic” , I’d yet to hear a version of this song that I could even tolerate… Leave it to Janelle Kroll to not only bring new found life into this song but also turn Scrooge McDuck himself (me) into a repeat Happy offender. Kroll, the Chicago native, who currently resides in New York, has been destroying covers and impressing the masses throughout the years as she catapults into stardom, so there’s no surprise here that she pulled off the impossible by taking the world’s biggest song   and making it better. With that being said, checkout Janelle Kroll’s version of “Happy”: 

EDITOR’S NOTE: I’ve listened to this song a dangerous amount of times on repeat today

Chloe Early, the Irish born, London based artist is hands down my favourite artist right this moment. Absolutely amazing how she blends her oil paintings all the while creating this abstract collage of surrealism. #stunning

Behind the scenes of the “All Wavy Everything” music video dir APJ FILMS

One of my favourite music video directors in the game, AARON PERKINS JR (APJ FILMS), is at it again. The concept behind this video is great and APJ seamlessly blends these crazy visuals to match ShowYouSuck’s persona. Great track, great video S/O to the homie PETER COTTONTALE along with MIKEJAXX OF THA HYDROX on the beat. With that being said, enjoy the track, as featured on ShowYouSuck’s current EP “DUDE BRO

Toy Soldiers

14 04 2014

“I did not want to fight anymore, but if they said to go to the front line, you had to go. We had to walk for days without getting any sleep or food. I was very sad when I had to see my friends die. Within the group, I experienced war, hunger, and cold.”

- Mercedes, former child soldier in Colombia

‘As armed conflict proliferates, an increasing number of children are exposed to the brutalities of war. Boys and girls around the world are recruited to be child soldiers by armed forces and militant groups, both forcibly and voluntarily. Some are tricked into service by manipulative recruiters; others join to escape poverty or discrimination. Still others are abducted from school, the streets, or their homes.

Aside from participating in combat, many are used for sex and as spies, messengers, porters, or servants. They are even ordered to plant and clear land mines. Kids have become the ultimate weapons and targets of 21st Century war.’
