  1. As the 2nd track off of Kanye West’s 2021 album Donda, the single “Jail,” is well known within the collective global consciousness. The song is steady and simple, using empty space as a vehicle to drive an impacting and suspenseful feel. Rich Furniss felt those traits and was hit by a wave of inspiration, feeling how “Jail,” was begging for someone to uproot it’s stems and transform it into an enhanced version of its former self. “Jail (Rich Furniss Remix)” not only does justice to the original, it sedates the listener with a grace and smoothness that needed to be made.  Rich Furniss · Kanye – Jail (Rich Furniss Remix) Rich Furniss converts what is already a soulfully sunkissed flow and takes it to a more heavenly place – the vocals featuring more echo/delay, the basslines giving off a more crisp disposition, and a soft percussion inclusion that rejects any type of harshness. “Jail (Rich Furniss Remix)” lightens the atmosphere and fuses what’s good about “Jail,” with the best aspects of rich Furniss. Rich Furniss will be performing again at the Electric Hotel in Chicago, USA this December 10th. This date doesn’t just represent a high-caliber event from the solo DJ/producer – it symbolizes a return to the city where he found his love for house music.

  3. Minimal Effort has built quite a following for putting on two spectacular events each year, having a stellar reputation for being expectation-topplers in the category of what a satisfying electronic music event should include. Throwing a Halloween show and a NYE show year after year, the bi-annual shenanigans continue the momentum once again, not looking to let anyone down considering the volatility that 2020 brought us. Insane sound systems, world-class production, and line ups that make the reader stop and take a 2nd look, is what Minimal Effort has brought to the table once more. Tickets can be found here. Now the NYE season is upon us, expect to see ​Dubfire, Nick Warren, DJ Boring, Layton Giordani, DAVÍ, Option4, Mason Collective, Life On Planets, Sad Money, Human Resources, Hats & Klaps, and others on what is one of the best nights of the year for many. Don’t miss what will be one of the premiere electronic events in LA for NYE festivities. Minimal Effort NYE will be happening ​in downtown LA at the Belasco Theatre, December 31st, starting at 9PM and ending at 4AM. This article was first published on Your EDM.

  4. A smart display like the Echo Show can add a bit of convenience and functionality to pretty much any room in the house. Here are the best deals on Echo devices as of Dec. 6: Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021) — $94.99 $129.99 (save 26%) Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) — $44.99 $84.99 (save 47%) Echo Show 8 (1st Gen, 2019) — $59.99 $109.99 (save 45%) Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) Kids — $49.99 $94.99 (save 47%) What's the deal with Amazon Echos? They're not quite iPad substitutes, but they perform all the basic functions you would want from a smart display, like video calling (the otherwise-comparable Google Nest Hub lacks this feature), listening to music, showing weather reports, checking in for security, controlling smart home devices with voice commands, and more. Pick one up for yourself and try it out before gifting it to your friends and family this holiday season. And if you're considering buying it as a gift, be sure to check out estimated shipping times for your preferred mode. Otherwise, you may want to leave the country for Christmas and only come back once all your gifts have been delivered. Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021) — $94.99 $129.99 (save 26%)One of the newest models that only came out earlier this year in June, the second generation of the Echo Show 8 has a better camera than its predecessor at 13 MP. It uses auto-framing to keep you centered on screen so that you can multitask while chatting. Bustling around the kitchen and cooking as you chat with Grandma? No problem, the Echo Show 8 will automatically pans, zooms, and frames you so she can clearly see your face. Credit: Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021 release) $94.99 at Amazon (save 26%) Get Deal Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021) — $44.99 $84.99 (save 47%)The Echo Show 5s are a few square inches smaller than their Echo Show 8 counterparts, but their 5.5" screens are still more than big enough to display your favorite photos. Its 2 MP camera isn't as clear as the 2nd gen Echo Show 8s and its 960 x 480 resolution falls short of the 8's 1280 x 800, but at that size of display, the weather, streaming service screen, or video still look just fine. Plus, it's currently at a deep discount. Credit: Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen, 2021 release) $44.99 at Amazon (save 47%) Get Deal Echo Show 8 (1st Gen, 2019) — $59.99 $109.99 (save 45%)The first generation of the Echo Shows debuted in the second half of 2019, but they've aged well. They use the MediaTek MT 8163 processor instead of the 2nd gen's MediaTek MT 8183 so they're a tad bit slower, but unless you're constantly switching between apps at light speed, the difference is all but negligible. They also use a 1 MP camera, so Grandma won't be able to see the pores on your face (a blessing in disguise). Another disadvantage is that they're not equipped with Zigbee hub, so controlling your smart home devices is a little more challenging, but it can be done, and the rest of the Echo Show's functions are still an option. Credit: Amazon Echo Show 8 (1st Gen, 2019 release) $59.99 at Amazon (save 45%) Get Deal Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) Kids — $49.99 $94.99 (save 47%)This is a great option for entertaining (read: distracting) the kids: Occupy them with educational TV programs, e-books, and movies while simultaneously running a timer on how long they can spend glued to the screen. Purchase of this display includes one year of Amazon Kids+, which gives you access to over 15,000 videos, audiobooks, games, music stations, and more. Parental control is flexible, so you can approve the friends and family before your child makes a call, set content limits, and review activity. The kids' Echo Show 5 even helps with homework.

  11. Creators are the beating pulse of TikTok, as the app frequently proclaims. They are, after all, the force behind viral videos and billions of viewers. But as many creators as there are, TikTok has chosen a select ten, characterized by huge fandoms, millions of followers, and innovative content. Today, TikTok released a major 2021 roundup, with all the trends, filters, and moments that defined this year on the platform. A part of this report is focused on the breakthrough creators, those whose popularity and engagement metrics rose, as well as their influence. "These are the creators who grew massive fandoms with their captivating content," the TikTok newsroom post reads. So who made this sparkling set? Here are the ten people who ruled our FYP pages in 2021. 1. Taylor SwiftShe hardly needs an explanation, but added another accolade under her belt this year. Swift became the reigning queen of TikTok when she joined the app in August 2021. For her 93+ million followers, she jumps onto viral trends, dances with her cats, and teases highly-anticipated music videos. 2. Olivia Rodrigo Rodrigo holds a similar position to Swift on this list, with existing fame that bolsters TikTok success. Her TikTok breakthrough is synced with her skyrocketing music career, which has truly taken off over the past couple of years. The Gen-Z pop artist is no doubt a TikTok favorite, considering its her age group that holds court on the app. With 11.7 million followers, Rodrigo plays around with funky, bespoke filters (mirroring her album aesthetic), sings angelically, and imitates TikTok games. 3. Emily MarikoThere are creators who went viral pretty much overnight, and for various reasons. Take Emily Mariko (@emilymariko), a Bay Area lifestyle vlogger who attained fame in a very 21st century way: with a viral recipe, a touch of ASMR and a resulting array of inspired think-pieces. Her legendary recipe consisted of reheated rice, leftover salmon, seaweed wrappers and carefully-placed cubes of ice. Fast-forward to the end of 2021, and Mariko is synonymous with lifestyle TikTok, noted for her relatability and accessibility alike. 4. Jonathan Graziano Jonathan and his pug Noodles simply follow a daily ritual (of identifying whether it's a "bones" or "no bones" day), but have millions of people tuning it to witness this. The Noodles-Graziano duo appear on the TikTok trend report twice, for both breakthrough creator and sources of joy. 5. Oneya D'AmelioIn a similar vein, creator Oneya D'Amelio (@angryreactions) does exactly what his handle suggests – reacting to and dueting with other videos in increasingly hilarious and emotive ways, all while declaring positive affirmations. I personally recommend his reaction to Zuckerberg's announcement of Meta. 6. Lissette EduardoA blend of humor and positivity is a great way to make a name on TikTok, as Lissette Eduardo (@chikybombomrea) has proven. A creator from the Dominican Republic, Eduardo delivers honest advice, positive messages, and underscores every piece of content with the purpose of empowering women. 7. Dr ShahBreaking through the TikTok noise is also accomplished by teaching people things, shedding light on new and old information, or simply delivering tutorials. After all, the app has become a guide to hacks of all sorts, from cooking to beauty. To attest to this is the presence of Dr Shah (@dermdoctor), a dermatologist who presents viral skincare and beauty videos, a blend of advice and suggestions. 8. Mikayla NogueiraSimilar to Dr. Shah, TikTok has deemed beauty guru Mikayla Nogueira (@mikaylanogueira) another breakout star. She posts makeup reviews, fantastical gold and emerald hued tutorials, and does it all with a lot of laughs. 9. Chef PuffTikTok is also just...weird. The platform is a place for the unexpected, the never-before-seen, the cute. It's no surprise then that Chef Puff (@thatlittlepuff) made the cut of 2021 honorees. These videos are creative, with a little cat chef (yes, really), watching recipes, debunking food myths, and just generally being adorably addictive. Just watch him meowing over mooncakes and you'll get the gist of this account. 10. Anna SitarOn the note of funny creators who don't really fit into one niche of TikTok comes Anna Sitar, who often just speaks to followers, takes them through her self-care chronicles (which means a trip to Target), singing makeup routines, and very frequent Starbucks (or "Starbies") runs. While TikTok's main list was focused on the US for now, they also gave a shout-out to global creators too: @abbyroberts, @BTS_official_bighit, and @thedutchgoalkeeper. The ultimate breakout star, though, is @khaby.lame, who has 122 million followers. The Italy-based creator has made headlines for his burgeoning fame on the platform, rising well above the rest.
