Established in 1967, The Advocate is a monthly LGBT magazine available in print and digital that publishes editorial features on news, politics, opinions, arts, and entertainment. In their latest issue they’ve released the annual “40 Under 40” list that features 40 young leaders in the LGBT community in politics, sports, science, religion, and the arts.
Among the list, Azari & III’s members, Cédric Gasaida (a.k.a. Starving Yet Full) and Fritz Helder have been recognized as two of the “architects” of the next decade. Take a look at the article to get a taste of what 1/2 of Azari & III is about as well as a 39 inspiring leaders.
Also don’t forget to check out their latest EP, “Lost In Time” featuring remixes from VCO and Jori Hulkkonen.
Following the release of their REMIX ALBUM and razor-sharp performances at this year’s Ultra Music Fest and SXSW, AZARI & III is unleashing their final ‘Remix EP’ off their stellar “Azari & III” full length. The LOST IN TIME EP is out today, featuring the original version of “Lost In Time”, along with 2 celebrated remixes from Finnish house producer/DJ Jori Hulkkonen and Los Angeles techno/house duo VCO.
The original version is centered on lush house beats, and reels through rich percussion, all the while marrying with a gorgeous vox. Jori Hulkkonen delivers a different sonic depth; building with distorted, systemized thumps and gleaming synths. Lastly, VCO gives the “Lost In Time” a solid workout, and the result is a pulsing throng of synths and splattered arpeggios.
To all our avid Twitter followers, and frequents of the #FF shoutouts, we have adorned a whole new meaning towards this overused Friday chant-off… Presenting #FreeFriday. This week we’re giving an exclusive remix away from AMTRAC, with his version of Azari & III‘s single, “Lost In Time“.
Azari & III will be releasing their final single & remix package, featuring “Lost In Time” off the ‘Self Titled’ album this Spring, with remixes by Jori Hulkkonen and VCO. Be sure to subscribe to our official Soundcloud page for more updates!
Just last week, we shared news of a forthcoming Azari & III remix compilation which features reworks from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Disclosure, Jamies Jones, Maceo Plex, Locked Groove, and many other top-shelf producers. Now, we’ve gotten our hands on an exclusive remix of the Canadian outift’s “Lost in Time” track from budding Los Angeles outfit VCO. This sharp and driving take on the tune will actually not be appearing on the aformentioned Remix Album, but will in fact find a spot on Azari & III’s Lost in Time EP when it drops this spring via Dim Mak, after the label releases the other remixes tomorrow. Yes, it’s all a bit confusing, but the essential take home points here are as follows: First, Azari & III have two fresh releases on the way, and second, this freebie is going to add some delectable dancefloor weight to your collection. ~ Glenn Jackson, via XLR8R
