DJ Ashba (Sixx:A.M., Etc.) Premieres “Bella Ciao” Video

DJ Ashba (Sixx:A.M., ex-Guns N’ Roses) has premiered a new video for his cover of the Italian folk song “Bella Ciao.” He said the following about that:

“After becoming completely obsessed with ‘Money Heist’, I became so inspired by ‘Bella Ciao’ and the history of the song. I couldn’t wait to get into the studio and make my own GDM version. I wanted it to be epic and dramatic, with big bass, bone-crushing guitar, and an infectious beat that I know the fans will go crazy for. After it was complete, I was telling my friend, famous Disney artist Craig Fraser, about my new version of this classic song, and him being a fan of the show as well, got inspired, and created me this one-of-a-kind painting of the iconic mask from ‘Money Heist’. I was so blown away; I thought it would make the perfect cover for this single.”

Creed’s Scott Stapp Teams Up With Wooli And Trivecta For New Song “Light Up The Sky”

Creed’s Scott Stapp has teamed up with DJs/producers Wooli and Trivecta for a new song titled “Light Up The Sky.” You can check that out below:

Trivecta commented:

“This collab is definitely a ridiculously cool life moment. I grew up listening to Scott’s voice on the radio, so to get in a studio with him and bang out a song together was a super-awesome experience.”

Wooli continued:

“Sam and I built this song that we knew needed a strong vocal. We thought deep about what would sound good on the song and when we had the chance to work with Scott Stapp of Creed, we knew we were on to something.”

Stapp added:

“When I first heard the track, I instantly started recording melodies and lyrics. The piano, builds, crescendos, drops, and overall vibes just connected right away. I wanted to give voice to the idea that releasing life’s inevitable sadness, fear, or regret is the first step to reclaiming the kind of intense joy and passion that this track explodes with. The music brought to mind the story of the phoenix’s transformation — the phoenix sets itself on fire, burning down everything that no longer serves it. In the process, he lights up the sky. For me, it epitomizes one’s ability to evolve. I’m grateful for Wooli and Trivecta for reaching out. Here’s to blending two worlds and to unexpected opportunities that forge something beautiful and powerful.”
