X Alfonso starts 2020 with the new single No Se Puede Pensar Como Un Prisionero, an ode to resistance

A video for X Alfonso's fourth and previous single, Siento Que… was uploaded to YouTube on January 10

MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Typical of X Alfonso's work, the song mixes blunt rap lyrics with a positive and optimistic message in the midst of the harsh reality that surrounds us all.

A video for X Alfonso's fourth and previous single, Siento Que… was uploaded to YouTube on January 10. The track, released in December, is a powerful acoustic version accompanied by an ensemble.

The year 2020 begins full of energy and new projects for Cuban musician, producer, and artist X Alfonso, who today, January 17, releases No Se Puede Pensar Como Un Prisionero (You Can't Think Like A Prisoner), the fifth and latest single from his most recent album, Inside, released in 2019 after 10 years of working in other artistic endeavors in his native Cuba.

No Se Puede Pensar Como Un Prisionero is a hymn to resistance, an invitation to seek power, determination and growth within oneself to get the best out of every human being, even though we live in a convulsed and selfish world, where the power of money and the interests of a few prevail over the general welfare.

Typical of X Alfonso's work, the song mixes blunt rap lyrics with a positive and optimistic message in the midst of the harsh reality that surrounds us all. And starting today, lovers of X Alfonso's provocative songs will be able to find this new single on his social media platforms and on his YouTube channel.

A video for the previous track, Siento Que… went up on January 10

A video for X Alfonso's fourth and previous single, Siento Que… was uploaded to YouTube on January 10. The track, released in December, is a powerful acoustic version accompanied by an ensemble.

The song speaks of strength, of the struggle and need that every human being has to need to live in a better world, and to share a common dream. This is a recurring theme in all of X Alfonso's music: his faith that this world can be a better place, if every one of us tries to make it so!

The simple and beautiful video was shot at the FAC (Cuban Art Factory), an iconic stage for Havana culture, where the Cuban musician and producer recorded live on December 19 Inside X Alfonso, a session open to exchange with the public.

X Alfonso's new video is available on all digital platforms and on his website (with free download for residents of Cuba).

About A Weird Kind of Fame:

A WEIRD KIND OF FAME, is a solo show about Jasmin St Claire's meteoric rise to infamy in 1996.She earned her place in American shock culture after appearing in the World's Biggest Gangbang 2. Her outlaw rockstar image landed her many appearances on Howard Stern's E tv show & radio show which made her his highest rated guest in the 90's.

Find out how an Ivy league graduate becomes America's most controversial sex symbol and ends up having a weird kind of fame which lands her into ECW Wrestling and later on as a VJ on MTV Brazil & in Europe. She comes back to the states to reclaim her Jasmin persona after trying to escape it for the past 2 decades.

About Jasmin St. Claire:

St. Claire entered the adult industry on a dare. Invited on the Jerry Springer Show for a scripted role as antagonistic stripper, St. Claire invented her larger-than- life "Jasmin St. Claire" persona. St. Claire's flare for theater and controversy marked her ascent in the adult film world. She polarized the industry by calling porn films "by and large, disgusting and brainless." But she quickly dethroned Jenna Jameson as America's top-selling porn star, and became the first Latina to surpass traditional blond porn star archetypes when her films achieved number one sales position in 1998. She was inducted in AVN's "Hall of Fame”. One of the greatest porn stars of all time. St. Claire was among the first adult performers to be merchandised as an action figure and to star in an adult comic book series.

At the height of her porn stardom, St. Claire was the subject of critical essays by David Foster Wallace and Evan Wright. She also served as inspiration for Chuck Palahniuk's novel Snuff, in which she appears as a character. For all the controversy she engendered, St. Claire only spent three years in the adult business and made just over two dozen films. In 1999, she retired. She never made an adult film again, though compilations of old footage re-released under new titles continued to be sold through the 2000s. St. Claire pushed herself to new extremes by becoming a pro-wrestler. In 1998 the Dudley Boyz invited her to appear in the ECW's Living Dangerously pay-per-view event. St. Claire subsequently trained under original G.L.O.W wrestler Sue Sexton and Mando Guerrero, then worked with wrestling legend Jimmy Lawler in the Memphis Championship and in the XWF and NWA- TNA. St. Claire often played the role of "manager," who would enter the ring and fight alongside wrestlers. In real life, St. Claire created the upstart federation 3PW becoming the first female owner ever to operate and promote a wrestling league, five years before Stephanie McMahon took the reigns of the WWE. St. Claire closed the doors to 3PW in 2005. St. Claire became a heavy-metal journalist and on-air personality with the launch of the Metals Darkside. series in 2004, which she also produced. Her interest in heavy metal stretches back to the first Black Sabbath show she attended at Madison Square Garden when she was nine. In 1998 she became the first female to emcee March Metal Meltdown in New Jersey, helping to introduce Sepultura to a North American audience. Through the mid-2000s St. Claire served as a veejay for The Metal Scene TV Show, AOL Noisecreep, Inferno TV and Stay Heavy TV, while writing articles as a contributor to Yahoo News and Guitar Player. She also served as a spokes model for B.C. Rich Guitars, Coffin Case, Krank Amplifiers and licensed her likeness to Guitar Hero for a controller made by Peavey.

St. Claire returned to acting 2013 in a series of dramatic roles, portraying an FBI agent in Army of the Damned and hardened street criminal in Grand Auto Theft. Most recently she appeared on popular HBO series, The Deuce.

— Amelia, A&R Factory

TAMPA BAY, FL, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Summertime Star Sign in November, saying goodbye to the past in haunting lyrics and deep, deep harmonics. Spaceman in December, disdaining the present in sharp angry rhythm. Now in January, Icarus, proclaiming the future in a driving, rocking, invincible message: no one can stop you. WD-HAN closed out one decade and opened the next with a triumvirate of songs celebrating life, all of it. Life isn’t always easy, but it’s yours to make better, and WD-HAN is right there with you through it all.

Versatile and creative lead guitar Cal, super-talented drummer Lea, and gritty-smooth singer Spencer meld almost-psychic synergy into original songs that dig into the heart and don’t let go.

HIP Video Promo presents: Aqua Seca premieres fantastically flippant "Don't Care" music video on New Noise Magazine

Aqua Seca

On-screen, “Don’t Care” shows reckless abandon – and a sense of limitless freedom.

ORANGE, CA, USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch "Don't Care" on New Noise Magazine

“Dry water” may seem to be an impossible concept – which means “Aqua Seca” is the perfect name for a musical project making impossibly creative sounds. In April 2019, Trent Hankinson began Aqua Seca, his new solo music project. But this Orange County, California native is not new to music in any way: he’s been playing drums since he was five and says that “music has always been a part of me, I wouldn’t know who I was without it.”

Hankinson is not just the mastermind, but the sole creative force at play here: though he enlists a live band for performances, he writes and plays all parts on Aqua Seca’s recordings himself (Greg Calbi of New York’s Sterling Sound masters everything). Taking influence from everyone from early Tame Impala to the Beach Boys, the first Aqua Seca album, Neural Stereo, will be released in January.

The new single “Don’t Care” is a taste of what to expect on Neural Stereo. Ever the mysterious creator, Hankinson isn’t one to reveal what the meaning of the song is – instead, every listener can take what they want from it and create their own meaning. On-screen, “Don’t Care” shows reckless abandon – and a sense of limitless freedom. The video was filmed on the Salt Flats in Utah – an epic, expansive setting that fits the feeling of the song itself. No matter which way you look, everything seems perfect and never-ending until you reach the horizon. Dressed in a suit and tie, our leading man sits down in an empty airplane seat… but where is he going? One thing’s for sure: he has no idea.

HIP Video Promo presents: Atlanta's Snypa drops a banger with his music video for "That's It"

Snypa – That’s It

He’s sneaking up on the national scene, and “That’s It” is the perfect single and video to usher in his blow-up

ATLANTA, GA, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — True to his name, Snypa has been dropping singles that seem to come from nowhere and snap heads back. With his rep solidified on the impossible-to-please streets of underground Atlanta, he’s sneaking up on the national scene, and “That’s It” is the perfect single and video to usher in his blow-up. He spits bars with a casual confidence that makes them feel off-the-dome, but that wordplay couldn’t possibly come from thin air. Or could it? The way he keeps delivering single after single, album after album leaves no time for pondering. He’s already getting crazy love from BET Jams for “That’s It,” and it’s high time everybody else gets up off the couch and play some catch-up.

Snypa does the ATL proud yet again with “That’s It.” It’s some more fire that was forged from another killer collab, much like his hit “On Everything,” a partnership with fellow up-and-comer KID808. KID808 mans the board here with Trell Got Wings, another of Atlanta’s homebrewed hustlers, who’s worked with Motown Records’ Rich Homie Quan, among others on his reel. This is the rare track that feels right at home maxed out on the dance floor, or setting the vibe in the VIP room. Here, Snypa’s straight up, stripped down lyrics glide on some snaky, stutter-step trap. KID808 and Trell Got Wings’ deep hypnotic thump clears a wide path as Snypa ping pongs between backing up his hustle and backing down his competition. Consider this the warning shot from his upcoming full-length Kinsman on WraithTalkMusic, and if you miss out on this one, well, for you? … that’s it.

Snypa and his crew post up in a dark, abandoned industrial space, and it could just as easily be an old factory in the Bluff, as a club that nobody’s telling you the password to. Director MI Visuals, aka The Pictureman, keeps the footage raw, gritty, and black and white. If there weren’t a handful of girls grinding inside mesmerizing rings of flickering fluorescents, the shots of Snypa and his boys staring down the camera might make you think you did them wrong, and this is the last thing you’re ever going to see. The Pictureman overlays split-second, old-school film flickers, giving the whole production an entrancing, narcotic feel, to match the music. When Snypa says he’s coming to “straighten out ya face like braces,” believe him, because his steady rise in the industry has only just begun.

HIP Video Promo presents: HABITZ cruises in style with infectious "Cadillac Drippin'" music video

Habitz – Cadillac Dippin

It's about taking a ride with that special lady, enjoying each others’ company in style and being that 2020 Bonny & Clyde.

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you familiar with dynamic rap duo HABITZ? You might not know them now, but you will soon – because it won’t be long till HABITZ are known as some of the biggest and greatest.

HABITZ is the brand-new collaboration between KNITWIT and Trazel. The two connected back in 2015 when Trazel was the first recording artist that KNITWIT signed to his label, ThugFace Records. “We’ve always been good friends and our talents and sound mesh together like butter whenever we collaborate,” KNITWIT says. “So it was easy for us to come together and form the group HABITZ.” Together, they blend Trazel’s smooth, sultry vibe with KNITWIT’s fast, in-your-face sound that’s like a west coast version of Outkast. Their goal? To bring back the timeless, old-school sound of early 90s R&B and hip-hop to the modern masses.

The first official single from HABITZ is “Cadillac Dippin,” a strong that will bring you straight back to the sound of 90s hip-hop. KNITWIT explains that “It is totally about taking a ride with that special lady, enjoying each others’ company in style and being that 2020 Bonny & Clyde. Rollin with the diamond in the back, sunroof top diggin in the scene with my gangsta lean.” Directed by Gary Ruff, the “Cadillac Dippin” video opens with KNITWIT and Trazel rolling up in an Escalade. They pop champagne poolside, but the real luxury tonight is the lady whose touch drives them crazy.

Sexual abuse lawsuit charges Palo Alto music school with protecting a teacher with sexual perversion tendencies

Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Sexual Abuse Legal Team

Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Sexual Abuse Legal Team

The sexual abuse legal team of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard represents the victim.

Root never should have been allowed to step foot in a School of Rock classroom, particularly where he would have private access to children.”

— Attorney Robert Allard

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A civil lawsuit filed last week charges a Palo Alto music school with negligence for allowing a known drug addict with sexual perversion tendencies to give one-on-one music lessons to a vulnerable 14-year-old girl.

The lawsuit was filed against the School of Rock franchise in Palo Alto along with the national franchisor, School of Rock, in Santa Clara County Superior Court on behalf of “Jane Doe” by Corsiglia McMahon & Allard partner and former California Attorney of the Year, Robert Allard.

In June 2018, John Patrick Root pleaded guilty to multiple counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child and served one year in Santa Clara County jail and is now a registered sex offender.

Root is a childhood friend of Felix Archuleta, co-owner of the music school. The Palo Alto School of Rock franchise was owned by Archuleta and Jackson Hansel Lynn under an LLC they formed, Because We Rock.

“Root never should have been allowed to step foot in a School of Rock classroom, particularly where he would have private access to children”, Allard said. “A routine Google search would have revealed that he was intimately engaged in pornography. His old friend Archuleta surely knew about this as well as his history of using hardcore drugs.”

Root’s relationship with the girl crossed numerous boundaries between January and July 2017, the lawsuit says. At that time, Root had relapsed into drug abuse and told the girl about his desire to have a sexual relationship with her. They began exchanging sexually explicit messages and photographs, and Root pressured her into having sex with him.

“This isn’t the first time the national School of Rock franchise has been in trouble for hiring sex abusers,” Allard said. “We know there have been at least five other child sex abuse cases that occurred between 2014 and 2017 involving School of Rock franchises.”

The Palo Alto case is particularly egregious because School of Rock did not suspend or fire Root when Archuleta learned that Root was engaged in inappropriate boundary violations and had romantic feelings for his underage female student. Instead, he was merely cautioned “Keep it to the music, man.”

Under California law, Archuleta and School of Rock are considered “mandatory reporters,” meaning they were required to report suspected abuse to law enforcement.

“They not only enabled abuse, but worse they didn’t notify police despite red flags being all over the place,” Allard said. “Instead, we believe that they tried to cover it up to protect the reputation of their business. In doing so, they acted with reckless disregard for their students’ safety.”

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the harm done to the minor child.
