Listen To The Movement’s New Jam ‘Dancehall’ Ft. Mr. Williamz – Premiere

first_imgThere’s a reason this band is called The Movement. One listen, and you’re sure to be moving and grooving along to their reggae-influenced tunes. With a new album, Golden, due out on April 8th, and a major cross-country tour in support of it, there’s just no telling how high this band can climb.Based out of Columbia, SC, The Movement’s newest album takes its inspiration for the inter-connectedness of the galaxy and human DNA. “I really started to like the idea behind the Fibonacci Code, the Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Golden Spiral,” says guitarist/vocalist Joshua Swain. “I liked the idea of searching for order and commonality in the chaos. Add to that the idea of requiring a “heart of gold” to inject beauty and goodness into the order and using the word golden as a synonym for perfect… It just made sense to me.”We’re happy to share the very first track from this new release, a song entitled “Dancehall.” Stream the new jam, featuring Mr. Williamz, below:We asked Swain to shed some light on the track’s origins. “Dancehall started out as a slow acoustic ballad, but we felt it wasn’t really living up to its name, so we had to spice it up a little. We were fortunate enough to link up with Mr. Williamz, and with three distinct parts in both style and tempo, we created a unique tale of lost love, music, and magic in the Caribbean,” he said.Golden is not only due out on April 8th, but it will mark the first release on the Rootfire Cooperative, a not-for-profit record label that is owned and operated by artists. Rootfire founder Seth Herman passionately states, “I hope the Rootfire Cooperative can provide micro-financing with the effect of boosting the artists business; and make a positive effect on an entire genre of music.”Check out the full tracklisting for Golden, and don’t miss the band on tour.

Remy joins Chelsea

first_img Press Association Remy then featured in QPR’s first two games this term as they made their top-flight comeback, but was missing from the squad for Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Sunderland as the completion of his move to Chelsea drew near. He also sat out Rangers’ Capital One Cup game earlier in the week, meaning he will be eligible for his new club in all competitions. It was reported on Saturday evening that Arsenal had made an enquiry about Remy, but interest had been withdrawn by Sunday. Meanwhile, AC Milan announced on Sunday that Torres’ switch to the San Siro was complete, with him having signed a contract through to June 2016. Remy said on www.chelseafc.com: “I feel very happy and very proud. “When I heard Chelsea wanted to sign me I said ‘let’s go’ straight away because they are one of the best clubs in the world. “I remember the amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge when I played there for Marseille and I can’t wait to play for the first time in front of my new fans.” It is understood Chelsea, triggering the release clause, are paying £10.5million for Remy, who had looked set to join Liverpool earlier this summer. The proposed switch to Anfield broke down following a medical, but Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said of the 27-year-old on Saturday: ”The information we have from specialists in different areas is he doesn’t have a problem to play football.” Remy came through Lyon’s youth academy and, after a loan spell at Lens, moved on to Nice and then Marseille, from whom he signed for QPR in January 2013. He scored six goals in 14 games for Rangers that season, but was unable to prevent them from being relegated from the Barclays Premier League. He made a swift return to the division in 2013/14, spending the campaign on loan at Newcastle and scoring 14 goals. Remy becomes a Blues player after they activated a release clause in the France international’s contract. He arrives at Stamford Bridge as Fernando Torres departs, with the Spain frontman having gone to Italy to join AC Milan on a two-year loan. Striker Loic Remy has joined Chelsea from QPR on a four-year deal, the two clubs have announced.last_img read more
