The weeks best videos: Sevdaliza, Clams Casino and a five-year-old rapper
May 29, 2016 10:40am | Fact Magazine
Welcome to FACT’s weekly video round-up.
As we note at the end of every year, music videos have never been better. But too often, music videos along with documentaries, live sets and interview clips get lost in the shuffle of news and new music.
With that in mind, FACT is doing what it does for mixes, mixtapes, vinyl and more: rounding up the internet’s best videos on a weekly basis. And to remove our bias, we won’t be including our own content you’ll have to stay tuned to FACT TV for all your Against The Clock, FACT Freestyles and Confessions needs.

Sevdaliza pairs three new songs with this heartbreaking short film. The Formula works backwards from a rainy, twilight drive and follows a troubled relationship marked by nightmares and emotional distance. Undoubtedly conceived without Beyoncé’s visual album in mind, The Formula certainly feels like part of the Age of Lemonade.

Studio equipment worth $20,000 stolen from Kanye Wests studio
May 29, 2016 9:11am | Fact Magazine
Thieves make off with thousands of dollars in laptops and computers.
TMZ reports that a burglary took place at Kanye West’s home studio in Calabasas, California, on Monday May 23. Around $20,000 worth of equipment was stolen.
The incident was reported to police on Tuesday morning after the door to Kanye’s studio was discovered open with many laptops and desktop computers missing. The equipment has already been replaced and none of the content is at risk apparently due to security measures in each device.
There are currently no suspects though TMZ reports Kanye’s team believes the crime was committed by someone in the know.
Earlier this week, a nearly 20-year old beat tape from Kanye West surfaced online. The eight beats are from a 1997 tape and include two that were later placed with Grav and Infamous Syndicate, some of Kanye’s earliest releases.

May 28, 2016 12:11pm | Fact Magazine
A celebration of the remix’s power to make you hear songs in a different way.
Swedish singer Robyn posted on her website yesterday that she has invited nine artists to remix tracks from her catalogue and career, including Chicago’s The Black Madonna, French production duo Cassius, and German musician Wolfgang Voigt.
The remixes, under the title RBN/RMX, will be debuted at a series of live performances in upcoming weeks, starting with Boston Calling tonight, Governor’s Ball in NYC, and Field Trip in Toronto. A release will follow.
Robyn included a note on her website about the project, saying “remixes make me listen to a song in a different way; they stretch you out as a listener and leave space for other things that a pop song usually doesnt. I hope to be able to share this experience with my audiences at Governors Ball, Boston Calling, and Field Trip over the next week and just dancing together…”

Mark Pritchard and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith collaborate on Now:Now
May 28, 2016 11:48am | Fact Magazine
Synth enthusiasts come together for new track series.
English producer Mark Pritchard and American composer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith have come together for a unique collaboration titled ‘Now:Now’, released this week as part of a new remix series sponsored by The Absolut Company. A new installment in the series will be released every last Thursday of the month.
The track sees the pair combine their interests in synthesizers and gentle compositions, which they both explored in their recent album releases – Under The Sun for Mark Pritchard and EARS for Aurelia Smith.
The artwork for the track comes from Jonathan Zawada, the Australian visual artist who collaborated with Pritchard on Under The Sun. The image is a 3-printed bust of Pritchard.
Earlier this month, FACT sat down with Pritchard and Zawada to discuss the world-building qualities of the new album.
In March, we also visited Aurelia Smith at her Los Angeles home where she gave us an intimate performance of her modular synthesis orchestra. Watch that below.
