Christmas came a little early this year! Spotify is relaunching their annual “Wrapped” feature allowing their users insight on what they have personally streamed over the past year. How awesome of a present is that?
Replacing their personalized “Year in Music” feature launched last year, the Wrapped feature will inform its users about how much time they actually spent streaming music in 2016. It will also allow them to see how many artists and songs they listened to. The best part? The feature will quiz its user on how well they truly know their own listening habits. It doesn’t stop there – it also makes a personalized playlist of 30 songs one might not have stumbled upon during the year. You read that right…you can stop asking your friends for song advice, Spotify has got you covered!
The well-known streaming service has coyly acknowledged the fact that 2017, hasn’t been the easiest of years. Knowingly keeping in mind that their Wrapped feature was about to hit the Internet, the multibillion-dollar company recognized the hardships of the past few months stating “in a year that many wanted to tune out, music gave us a reason to keep listening.” We don’t know how you feel about that statement, but for us, it really hit home. Music is such a powerful relaxation tool – we absolutely can’t wait to see how our personal playlists reflects. Our moods must have changed significantly over this past 12 months – it will be interesting to see how this groundbreaking feature echoes our emotions with our own chosen tracks. Happy streaming!

Picture this. You went out the night before and had 10 shots of tequila, 4 beers, 2 rum and cokes, 1 whiskey ginger, and maybe an Irish Car Bomb. Then the next morning you wake up with THE WORST headache of your life and all you can smell is alcohol. Your whole body aches and the only thing you crave is 7 gallons of water. This is known as the legendary hangover. Most of us are all too familiar with it, but a game changing substance is in the works and could make the hangover a thing of the past.
David Nutt, a drug scientist and professor at London’s Imperial College, has come up with a “synthetic alcohol” that is hangover free. Dubbed “Alcosynth“, the purpose of the substance is to mimic the euphoric effects of alcohol minus headache, nausea, vomiting, and pain.
The creation of this substitute substance has been ten years in the making. After experimenting with 80 different substances, Nutt’s team has narrowed down the selection to five. The one that best mimics the way alcohol works but poses less of a threat on the brain will be submitted to the Food Standard Agency (Britain’s equivalent of the FDA) as a cutting edge food ingredient.
How does this work one may ask? The answer lies in the fact that alcosynth is void of acetaldehyde which is the substance that is responsible for hangovers. The build up of acetaldehyde causes the symptoms of the regrettable condition so many of us fear.
According to Nutt, the plan is to have alcosynth in 100 bars by 2020 and have alcohol replaced by it by 2050. This is quite a feat as his team needs $11.8 million to have safety checks done in order to have the substance certifiably safe for human consumption.
In an interview with The Independent Nutt said,
“It will be there alongside the scotch and the gin, they’ll dispense the alcosynth into your cocktail and then you’ll have the pleasure without damaging your liver and your heart. They go very nicely into mojitos. They even go into something as clear as a Tom Collins. One is pretty tasteless, the other has a bitter taste.”
In the meantime party hard but drink responsibly.

Tom Staar – Come Together (feat. Matt Hope)
It looks like another Tom Staar tune has surfaced on Axwell’s record label called Axtone Records. This one’s a doozy too as the 100th Axtone release. Last month Tom aired the very first episode of his new radio show, Staar Playr, which features a lot of new music coming from his label, Staar Traxx and new music by himself also. “Come Together” features the amazing voice of Matt Hope. It was first played at last year’s Axtone party in Miami Music Week and has since then made an appearance in many sets around the globe.
The production follows his previous releases “Bora,” on Axtone, and “Drift” on SIZE. The track is a pure progressive-groove gem. Apart from the track, Axtone has decided to revisit the original cover art with the neon sign with something more studied. The main concept is always the same but, this time, the background wall on the original concept is replaced with a massive collage of photos by Axtone’s fans. Since the track title is “Come Together” we think this idea is really shows Axtone’s appreciation for its listeners and fans. Enjoy.
