After a long wait for his new music, Lanz finally dropped his debut album last week for all to enjoy! He features singer, Jems and a few rappers like Joel Debus and Mvtthias throughout the completed work. He starts the album with a slow yet captivating ballad that accentuates the singer, Lexi Olesh's voice. As you get deeper into the album, it is able to showcase Lanz's talent by his own lyrical and production style. I think this album is a great start for Lanz and the final product is a perfect representation of his musical talent. Check out Lanz's album, XCV, below!

NOAH GARTON (MAJOR)
Written by: DEVON Hi there! Welcome to MEDIUM! This new interview series is focused on visual artists using all kinds of mediums to express their creativity. We hope this series gives you insight into artists’ inspiration, process and style.
Our first MEDIUM interview comes from Noah Garton who goes by the alias “major”. Noah is 18 years old and is from Essex, UK. How long have you been creating art? Mmnnnmnm well it wasn't as simple as an 'ok art time' type thing. I started out making awful ear-rape memes and shit-posts for my own entertainment in early 2015 with Sony Vegas, and then transitioned to cover art and animations along the way somehow. Here's the earliest known meme I have (please. kind reviews only) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdj036hNbBE … But I think I properly started in November 2017 when, after a few first attempts at art, my friend Ari took £100 off me and threatened to donate it to UKIP (very right wing UK party) if I didn’t do d…
We've all heard of Coachella but have you heard of COALCHELLA? Built on the sandbox video game, Minecraft, the spontaneous group of individuals who brought you the iconic Minecraft Birthday Party, presents a new innovated way of bringing live DJ sets to a bigger audience. Composed of dynamically built stages, the event exhibits a wide variety of monuments and interactive structures for hundreds of visitors who want to experience what an online show is truly like. You can expect to catch sets from a brilliant selection of artists such as IRL festival headliners Electric Mantis, ANAMANAGUCHI, and Y2K to recognizable SoundCloud natives like quickly, quickly, warpstr, or William Crooks.

But to take this URL fest a step further, visual artists OM_NEB, Elena Fortune, mushbuh, and kikkujo are doing merch items for the players' to rep while roaming the land of Coalchella!

It's always a pleasure to feature visual artists who are truly passionate about what they do. From the Valley of California, Kido is a young artist whose sketches and detailed character portraits rise and come to life. He has the skill and talent to tell a story about an individual figure he creates and builds. From black and white illustrations to minimal use in pastel colors, this authentic artist has recently done illustrations for Mark Redito's Likido event series and a collaboration with 2ToneDisco titled, Amity. Displaying emotions of the world's youth, Kido portrays his own personality and thoughts through his visual outlet which resonates with others extremely well. What caught my eye about Kido was that not only can you relate to his characters, but it gives you an itch to want to know the character in a "real life" setting. He plays with various wordings and fonts paired with fine sunken personalities to give an entire piece that di…
