FACT mix 611: Nídia

in Music/News by

Príncipe-signed prodigy Nídia carves out a fresh path with fractured rhythms and booming basslines.

Formally known as Nídia Minaj (after her musical idol Nicki), Nídia was still at high school when she began splicing together her own beats, influenced by the vibrant party scene in Bordeaux, France, where she lived.

Before moving to France at age 11, Nídia spent her early years in Portugal, just outside of Lisbon, and was fascinated by kuduro, an innovative form of Angolan dance music that evolved in Lisbon’s barrios. The hiccuping beats and lurching melodies of the “kuduro continuum” still make up the backbone of Nídia’s music, but she brings plenty more into the mix.

Linkin Park pay tribute to Chester Bennington: “Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled”

in Music/News by

The members of Linkin Park have broken the silence on the death of frontman Chester Bennington. On Thursday, Bennington was found dead by suicide. He was 41 years old.

In a statement posted to Facebook, the band writes, “Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.”

It continues:

“You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away Keep Reading

George R. R. Martin offers an update on next Game of Thrones book The Winds of Winter

in Music/News by

The Winds of Winter is the forthcoming sixth entry in A Song of Fire and Ice, George R. R. Martin’s book series on which Game of Thrones is based. Readers have been anxiously awaiting the book’s release the last few years, and according to a new update from Martin, it appears they’ll have to sit tight a little longer.

In a recent post on his Not a Blog, Martin notes that although he’s been hard at work on The Winds of Winter, he’s still “months away” from its completion:

“And, yes, I know you all want to know about THE WINDS OF WINTER too. I’ve seen some truly weird reports about WOW on the internet of late, by ‘journalists’ who make their stories up out of whole cloth. I don’t know which story is more absurd, the one that says the book is finished and I’ve been sitting on it for some nefarious reason, or the one that says I have no pages. Both ‘reports’ are equally false and equally moronic. I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that’s all I care to say.”

It’s bummer news, especially for Game Keep Reading
