Following the shocking death of actor Paul Walker a month ago, Universal Studios decided to halt production on Fast & Furious 7 until it could be determined whether the company would start from scratch with the project, or if they would continue on and simply edit Walker’s already filmed scenes. Universal has now stated that the release date for the film will be pushed back to April 2015, but that Paul Walker will not be removed from the final cut. The filmmakers will still have to figure out how to move forward with the project while incorporating Walker’s scenes, but fans will be relieved to see the veteran actor in his most famous role one more time. With all the confusion that will already be happening in the movie world in 2015, we’ll definitely keep an eye on this one.
The Chicago emcee/producer just released his five track EP, Easily. About a month ago here at MADE, we gave everyone a little heads up, as Chuck debuted the track, “Came Thru/Easily”. Just because we are so nice, here it is again incase you missed it.
The five track EP features Chuck’s signature sound with simple but heavy drum and bass, taking it back to the basics; but yet, once again he brings the heat on this one. Right now the EP is only available on iTunes for just over $5. We have always been a big fan of Chuck and the Cool Kids as their music bangs out parties and shows. God damn though, we had to turn Swervin wayyyyyyyy up.
Stay tuned for more as Chuck releases his solo album, Convertibles, on February 11th, 2014.
Minneapolis’ Vandaam, is one unique group to say the least. It is only right that we pay some homage to the group, who has been receiving much love from the city. The futuristic ‘Chill Wave’ that they possess, has had me groovin’ to them twice now at their shows. The group consists of three artists: Lady Midnight on vocals, producer Absent, and producer Sloslylove. The three fit together like the ingredients on a burger. Lady Midnight’s the meat and buns, once heated; the others melt together like cheese and make the sounds we hear, right? The collective is as good as they sound live, and are really hard to categorize as a genre. Overall, the album is an experience in itself. Make sure to listen to the full album here, and let us know what you think here at MADE.

While some may think this is redundant, this informative four minute rant from Joe Rogan sums up this topic rather well. Many people throughout the world use it, or simply do not know what the hell its actual benefits are; it gets explained perfectly here. Instead of watching one of those god-awful lengthy documentaries and videos that often bore people, this is all you need. Enjoy.
