Construction of the Walter Elias Disney Airport to Disney World, which would serve visitors traveling to the resort area to visit the parks, must be completed by June 30, 2023, as new legislation will come into effect on July 1, 2023 – legislation that will forever remove Disney’s autonomy to build its own airport. But the project would be a colossal undertaking. They’re going to need dump trucks full of pixie dust for this one.

Disney World is ever-changing and ever-growing, just as Walt Disney ‘prophesied’ when he first purchased thousands of acres of swampland in a desolate, wet area of ​​central Florida in the early days. of the 1960s.

“Here in Florida, we have something special that we’ve never enjoyed at Disneyland: the blessing of size,” Walt said. “There’s enough ground here to hold every idea and plan we can imagine.”

Walt’s first land purchase in Central Florida was traded in October 1964. And by the time he was done buying swamps, he had amassed nearly 30,000 acres within Orange County and Osceola County. And it only cost him about $5 million.

Reedy Creek Improvement District

In 1966, Walt Disney and his team began their lobbying efforts in the Sunshine State with the goal of establishing the Reedy’s Creek Improvement district. Reedy Creek would serve as a special tax district that ultimately gave Disney World the blessing of full autonomy over the land on which the new theme park would be built. In essence, Disney could do (almost) anything it wanted.

Reedy’s Creek independent special district was created to function as its own authority from a governmental perspective, allowing it to have the same authority and responsibilities as any county government. Reedy Creek could levy taxes, create its own building codes, maintain itself independently of surrounding counties, and even build its own nuclear power plant or an airport that would serve guests vacationing at Disney World.

The Florida Legislature passed the Reedy Creek Improvement Act in 1967.

Lake Buena Vista STOLport – What is it?

When waltz disney bought a marshy land in Florida, he was already dreaming of his airport of the future. It would serve many purposes, not the least of which was to provide transportation for visitors to and from Walt Disney World.

Walt envisioned an airport that a central monorail line would connect to an entry plaza and a hub and the amusement park resort area, which would become disney world located around and near bay lake.

While Walt Disney World was being built, this part of central Florida wasn’t quite the size it is today, but it still needed a new airport, because the closest to the area of Walt Disney World only had one. commercial airstrip, and it operated from part of McCoy Air Force Base (hence the call letters “MCO”), according to a site that features articles on the history of Walt’s “Florida Project” and EPCOT City:

“The desire to Walt disney World have his own airport was not as arbitrary as it seems today. In 1971, what has now become the bustling Orlando International Airport was known as Orlando Jetport to McCoy. Jhe Jetport inherited a former Air Force missile hangar. Even after the government decommissioned the base in 1975 and transferred the entire site to the city of Orlandoair travelers arriving under the new name Orlando International Airport were hosted by the same primitive Quonset hut terminal until more modern facilities opened in 1981.

“For a brief period in the early 1970s, however, it was possible for the jet set to head to the Vacation Kingdom of the World through Disney’s own airstrip, the Lake Buena Vista STOL port. This facility, for private use airportdesignated “DWS” by IATA, was essentially a 2,000-foot featureless airstrip and taxiway. »

The Lake Buena Vista STOL port was located east of the current Walt disney World Speedway. STOLPort only offered services to Guests vacationing at Disney World. According to Disney Fandom, Shawnee Airlines served passengers to Orlando International and Tampa International. It was a tiny place, but there were plans to build a full-service airport located at Walt Disney World Resort. These plans were scrapped in the 1980s, however, as Disney expanded its monorail system.

Disney’s Magical Express is no more, and customers need better options

Currently, millions of guests arrive at Orlando International Airport en route to Disney World, but the resort is located 20 to 25 miles from MCO, which means guests have had to arrange transportation from Orlando to Disney World since the death of the STOLport. For this reason, Disney has set up a service known as Magical Express.

It was free for guests staying on Disney World property and offered transportation to and from MCO via brightly colored Mickey-inspired buses. But a lot of good things must come to an end, and Disney’s Magical Express met its demise in January 2022 (likely because it was free). The end of the Magical Express left guests finding other ways to get to the parks from MCO :Mconnect earsthe circular of the sun, car rentals and rideshares like Uber and Lyft are now popular choices for visitors to get to the parks from Orlando.

It is time to develop and build an airport on Disney World property, as it would serve the millions of visitors who visit the resort each year. It would also serve as a dream come true for a full service airport that once danced in the creative spirit of Walt and those who worked closely with him – and not anywhere near the old airstrip, which can still be seen from World Drive.

The name “Buena Vista” belonged to Walt’s day, but in light of Disney’s upcoming 100th anniversary, it seems much more appropriate to honor the man behind it all and officially register the airport as a Walter Elias Disney International Airport (and I hope the WED isn’t already used by another airport).

No airport project was discussed in Expo D23 2022 in Anaheim early September, and Disney is running out of time. For the first time since 1967, time is running out and Disney no longer has the unlimited freedom to build the airport as it once did. There is still a window, but it is actively closing as I type this.

Since the passage of Reedy’s Creek Improvement Act, which gave Disney its own special district at Disney World, the company had the legal right to build anything from an airport to a nuclear power plant in the area. (Yes, we’re serious.) But when Florida lawmakers voted to repeal the Reedy’s Creek improvement district during special session in April of this year, time has begun to tick on this right and this window of opportunity. As it stands, Reedy Creek will be dissolved, effective July 1, 2023, and any special privileges the Betterment Act granted to Disney will also be dissolved.

But maybe all they need is a little faith, trust and pixie dust to complete the project on time – and a different contractor than the one overseeing the construction of TRON Lightcycle Run at the Magic Kingdom. (Who knows how long an airport would take this entrepreneur?) This may be the perfect recipe for a whole new kind of attraction at Disney World – Walter Elias Disney International Airport – and the most impressive thing on this subject ? The fact that Disney had it built and up and running in just a few months!

Disney has always strived to make the impossible, possible, so that the new airport isn’t completely uncharted territory for the entertainment giant. And just think, if Disney can pull this off, Walt’s memory will be honored in a monumental way, and Universal will never be able to overshadow Disney on social media again! Win, win, win.

Gravity founder shows off new jet pack while flying over Chicago https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/gravity-founder-shows-off-new-jet-pack-while-flying-over-chicago/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 13:56:14 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/gravity-founder-shows-off-new-jet-pack-while-flying-over-chicago/ In case you weren’t paying attention, Iron Man-style flight suits are relatively normal now.

In case you weren’t paying attention, Iron Man-style flight suits are relatively normal now. The British Ambulance Service tested them to reach difficult places, the Royal Navy flew between an escort ship and an aircraft carrierand the armed police have staged a high-speed chase to catch a mock criminal – it turns out a lot of jobs are made easier by theft.

Now, however, we have a video of a real jet pack in the sense that they were always envisioned, with a set of jets in the back and two separate arm-controlled stabilizers. Little information exists about the jet pack itself, except that it was created by Gravity Industries, the same company that provided the suits and training for the aforementioned jetsuit adventures.

What makes this flight interesting, however, is that most gravity suits reserve the place of the backpack for fuel, powering two powerful motors on each arm to propel the wearer through the air. This time it seems that a series of engines have also been added to the rear.

While flying may seem effortless (and a whole lot of fun), it’s no easy task. The jets attached to the arms mean that all of your body weight relies on your upper body strength, so it’s best to bulk up before you send yourself into the air at 88.5 kilometers per hour (55 miles per hour) using the combination.

It’s unclear if this could be a new iteration of the suit, just that the pilot was Richard Browning, founder of Gravity Industries and chief test pilot.

While Browning primarily flies, Gravity actually makes custom jetsuits and trains the customer to use them. All it costs is the small price of $430,000 (£380,000) maybe Iron Man suits are only for the Tony Starks of this world after all.

“More of the same” is usually thrown around as an insult, but in the case of Splaton 3 it is anything but.

When a group of enthusiastic young Nintendolings brought up Splatoon for the Wii U, they came up with a great concept. The thought process may have been something like, “Hey, let’s do a Call of Duty-like a third-person shooter that parents will let their kids play, because it’s not all violent and all that”. So the weapons became ink guns and the soldiers became cool and edgy squid/humanoid hybrids. Throw yourself into a bit of the Wii’s classic Australian wonder From Blob and a good piece of Radio Jet Set attitude and voila!

The first Switch release, Splaton 2 perfected the formula without hardly revolutionizing it, and that is precisely what Splaton 3 also done. It should be kept in mind that Splaton 2 was a shining example of nailing both gameplay and atmosphere, so there wasn’t much to improve on. As such, we’re getting a new story mode – or “Hero” – titled The return of mammalsa selection of multiplayer modes and a shiny new card game named Tableturf Battle, which is accessible after reaching level four.

“The first Switch release, Splaton 2 perfected the formula without hardly revolutionizing it, and that is precisely what Splaton 3 also done.

Our theme colors this time around are blue and yellow, echoing the arid Splatlands we start in, before heading to this release’s metropolis, Splatsville – aka “the city of chaos”. This is where, as you level up and accumulate currency, you can funkify your character through shopping. Shopping rocks!

After some customization tweaks to your Inkling or Octoling rep in-game and selecting a hairstyle for your little pal Smallfry, it’s time for the intro release. This has motion controls enabled by default, and our STACK The best advice here is that as soon as you regain control in Splatsville, go to the options menu and turn it off. Ugh!

Splaton 3

Once you arrive in Splatsville, you can also opt to dive straight into multiplayer or embark on a larger single-player campaign than in the two predecessors. You and your little buddy meet old Cap’n Cuttlefish, who subsequently disappears, and then there’s fuzzy slime and lots more contradictory things in your quest to regain control of the mega power source that is the Great Zapfish, which has, once again, gone AWOL.

Again, Hero Mode allows newbies to be indoctrinated in all things Splatoony. Learning many nuances such as weapon handling and neat transmog between squid and biped, and the benefits each configuration offers, it’s also handy as a refresher course for those who may not have done the thing. ink for a while.

As with these two previous games, Splaton 3 isn’t really about single player play though. The basic multiplayer option is the classic Turf War, where you deal in ink alongside three teammates trying to color your world with more of your tint than your four opponents. There are 12 maps to attack, five of which are all shiny and new, with the carrot of new weapons and abilities to unlock as you progress.

Then comes the return of Splaton 2‘s Salmon Run, a quest to collect salmon eggs by hitting opponents. Some would call it a horde mode, because basically it is.

Rounding things out is Anarchy Battle, which replaces the Ranked Battle experience. Accessible after reaching level 10 (or immediately if you are a Splaton 2 veteran with a saved game to prove it), they can be played solo or with real-world friends. Speaking of friends, a big improvement is the ability to team up with them rather than just continually suffering from random types.

Splaton 3

Have you been lucky enough to catch some of the almost insanely elusive Splatoon amiibo? Tap, tap, tap with them and they’ll give you fun bonuses, including gear and abilities.

Our one big disappointment with an otherwise fabulous fun experience? There is – inexplicably – still no local split-screen multiplayer experience. The best thing is that if you’re carrying two (or more) Switch consoles, they can be hooked together, which still means no big screen – boo! The first time it was excusable, the second time an oversight, the third time it’s really hard to forgive.

“We’re the squids in a-Splats-a-ville – WHOA-OH!”

Ultimately, while Splaton 3 isn’t spouting masses of inktakular content for obsessive types like its latest release, much more is promised via free updates slated for the next two years, so value – and variation – is assured.

If you are already converted, then Splaton 3 is a must. If you’re not yet indoctrinated on the path of ink, then hop on board and sing along… We’re the squids of a-Splats-a-ville – WHOA-OH!

Splaton 3 is now available on Switch.star 4 and a half

Many luxury goods sellers aren’t feeling the same pressure to cut marketing budgets that has hit other categories in recent months, thanks to a booming market for luxury cars, travel packages and more. high-end products.

Luxury brands are benefiting from the growth in net worth of wealthier consumers in the pandemic era, as well as the emergence of millennial millionaires and an increase in so-called revenge spending, or consumers spending more than they normally would as they emerge from the pandemic.

Global luxury goods revenue will rise from $309.6 billion last year to $349.1 billion in 2022, according to market research firm Statista Ltd., on its way to $419 billion in 2027 .

“At the high end, life is good and demand is robust,” said brand consultant Simon Sproule, who previously held senior marketing and communications roles at Tesla. Inc.

and Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings PLC.

“As wealth increases, people tend to accumulate high-end experiences over time.”


— Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President of Luxury Brands, Marriott

Companies ranging from social media company Meta Platforms Inc.

at Gannett publishing conglomerate Co.

Inc. have seen their revenues plummet in recent months as overall advertising spend has fallen.

Some once-hot startups have cut both headcount and marketing budgets, while big spenders in sports betting and cryptocurrencies have had to recalibrate their spending.

Luxury marketers make different calculations.

Most luxury brands could theoretically stop marketing because they can’t produce goods fast enough to meet current demand, but smart marketers are spending more to build long-term equity, Sproule said. .

Marketing budgets for luxury brands were much higher in 2022 than in 2021 and show no signs of slowing down as planning for 2023 begins, according to Julie Michael, chief executive of Publicis Groupe. HER

the advertising agency Team One, which specializes in working with luxury brands such as Toyota Motor Body

Lexus and Marriott International Inc.

St. Michelle Wine Estates Ltd. increased its marketing budget by 15% year over year, due to growing demand for premium varieties, said Toby Whitmoyer, Chief Growth Officer. “Lower value wine is in decline, while the $15+ price category is showing growth,” he said.

Marriott has increased 2022 marketing budgets for upscale names including the Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis, also driven by increased demand for upscale hotels, said Chris Gabaldon, senior vice president of luxury brands. of the hotel chain.

“As wealth increases, people tend to accumulate higher-end experiences as they go along,” Gabaldon said.

And the paid media budget of Four Seasons Hotels Ltd. will grow 300% year-over-year in 2022, according to Marc Speichert, executive vice president and chief commercial officer of the luxury hotel chain.

Four Seasons launched an advertising campaign in August with the theme “Luxury is our love language”, which it says will be the most expensive in the company’s more than sixty-year history. The ads depict scenes that Four Seasons says are based on real-life examples of high-profile guests being looked after by hotel employees, such as an executive receiving monogrammed bathrobes, lattes and steaks. .

The decision to base the campaign on individual guest experiences was informed by Four Seasons’ work over the past year, in addition to expanding its internal data analytics capabilities and developing the profiles of some two million customers, in part to better target high earners who provide a disproportionate share of the company’s revenue, Speichert said.

“I have their email; I have their address; we have a profile. As soon as they walk through the door, I know these are the guests I should pay special attention to,” he said.

Some brands go to great lengths to reach the jet set with events.

Electric vehicle maker Lucid Group Inc. has just launched a city-by-city “Dream Ahead” tour where people who have booked but not yet purchased cars – as well as other interested parties like journalists or email subscribers Lucid – can test its high -priced cars.

“There’s no filtering, it’s direct-to-consumer, and we believe that’s how consumers want to hear from luxury brands,” said Jeff Curry, vice president of marketing, communications and products, describing Lucid’s marketing strategy.

About 300 people who pre-ordered the $300,000 Aston Martin 2023 V12 Vantage sports car attended an invitation-only dinner in May at the company’s main factory.

In May, around 300 people who had pre-ordered limited-edition Aston Martin 2023 V12 Vantage sports cars traveled from as far away as Australia to attend a black-tie dinner inside the automaker’s main factory. automobile in Warwickshire, England, where they saw the cars unveiled on the same floor where they were assembled, according to a company spokesperson. Models cost around $300,000.

Executives said these events for existing customers and even ticketed events double their marketing functions, as they have the potential to raise the profile of luxury brands among affluent consumers.

Later this month, Four Seasons will launch a program in which a small number of guests will take a week-long drive through the Tuscan countryside in the luxury sports car of their choice. All parts of the trip, such as visits to exclusive locations and interactions with area chefs, are organized by the chain, with pricing starting at around $35,000 per guest.

Four Seasons has also expanded its 24-day international private jet experience program, with the cheapest “around the world” trips starting at $190,000 per person. Mr Speichert said the program is 90% complete until the end of 2023, with the company currently selling tickets for 2024.

A number of brands lured by the luxury sector’s profit margins have also started trying to enter the category, leading some more established luxury names to try and climb even higher up the ladder, Sproule said. , the consultant.

Last year, Aston Martin began to describe itself as “ultra-luxury” and launched a rebranding campaign in July to emphasize the exclusivity of its products, said Renato Bisignani, head of global marketing and communications.

It has diverted money from outdoor billboard advertisements, as well as mass gatherings that are not targeted at the very wealthy, Mr Bisignani said.

“Luxury is probably one of the most abused terms in the industry right now,” he said.

NEW DELHI : Jet Airways’ planned relaunch is set to face further delays as the airline continues to face serious operational challenges that remain unresolved, casting doubt on its ability to meet its original deadline to restart flight operations by September .

Jet Airways emerged from bankruptcy proceedings with a change in ownership and planned to launch services in the September quarter after receiving the air operator certificate from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation on May 20 . However, clarification is still awaited from the airline on the aircraft pipeline, and an announcement is expected on this in a few months.

“We see that the airline is serious and desperate to start their flights. But they have to decide on the plane, approach the dispatcher, go through the process of slots and other steps that are part of the procedure before the start of flights. All of this will take at least a few weeks after the airline announces its plane order. A flight launch this month is unlikely,” a senior official said.

The airline currently has one operational aircraft, a Boeing 737NG, according to flight tracking website flightradar24.com. The airline launched the pilot hiring process for the Airbus A320, Boeing B737NG and Boeing 737MAX in July. So far, the airline has inducted 200 employees.

Jet Airways closed in April 2019 due to a severe financial crisis. The airline then went through resolution proceedings under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code for two years. Finally, a Mumbai bankruptcy court approved the resolution plan submitted by the Jalan Kalrock Consortium in June 2021.

“We are working to open for sale by the end of the current month and begin operations shortly thereafter. Starting, or in this case, restarting an airline, is a complex process, and we will take the time to get it right. However, we are pleased that we are so far close to our target date,” said a spokesperson for the Jalan-Kalrock consortium.

The airline is set to lease some planes for initial operations, but has been in talks with Airbus and Boeing for an order for new planes, people familiar with the development said. The airline is considering the Airbus A320, A220 and Boeing B737 MAX as options for the new plane order, they added. While Jet Airways, prior to its grounding, was a full-service carrier, the new Jet Airways is likely to offer a combination of low-cost and premium services.

The airline used a Boeing 737 in May for its Air Operator’s Certificate test flights, but if the airline chooses to go with Airbus or a mix of Airbus and Boeing, it won’t need to obtain another Air Operator’s Certificate but will obtain regulatory approval for the same, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

“We are in the very final stages of contracting with lessors and OEMs for the aircraft and engines. We will announce our choice of aircraft and our fleet plans when the process is complete, which should be very soon. As we have always maintained, this is a marathon, not a sprint, and we are focused on securing the best possible aircraft and engine contracts to secure our future.” said consortium spokesman Jalan-Kalrock.

On Monday, shares of Jet Airways fell 0.85% to 99.20 on BSE.

The SEGA Dreamcast turns 23 today, and to celebrate, we’re looking back at the system’s legacy and how it helped innovate the video game market.

SEE THE GALLERY – 3 IMAGES

The Dreamcast turns 23 today. The system was one of the most interesting game consoles ever thanks to its online connectivity with games like Phantasy Star Online and an actual web browser, and its impressive VMU memory cards which served as storage as well as portable handhelds. Dreamcast’s VMUs have interacted with specific games like Sonic Adventure, providing a separate playable mini-game called Chao Adventure this could result in the main game.

The Dreamcast was a big hit at launch. SEGA had originally hoped to make around $41 million in sales, but managed to more than double that figure – the Dreamcast sold $97 million worth of consoles, games and peripherals (source: The Baltimore Sun). In fact, the SEGA Dreamcast was so successful that it set a world record as the biggest entertainment retailer in US history (source: Peter Moore).

This popularity, however, did not last. In total, the Dreamcast sold around 10.2 million units worldwide and was demolished by the PlayStation 2, which became a widespread sensation as the cheapest DVD player at the time – and it turned out that he also played extremely popular games.

SEGA actually lost a lot on the Dreamcast; reports indicate that SEGA lost up to $400 million in early 2000 (source: Reddit).

Dreamcast Turns 23 Today, RIP SEGA's Latest Console 3 |  TweakTown.com

Even still, fans fondly remember the Dreamcast. The system’s stellar launch range has only gotten better over time, bringing games like the ultra-weird Seaman, Space Channel 5, Ikaruga, Skies of Arcadia, Jet Set Radio, Phantasy Star Online, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Crazy Taxi, Shenmue, Soul Calibur, and many more.

SEGA continues to make games these days and is doing quite well – the company makes billions every year from its lucrative mix of free and premium games – but we just have to wonder when and if it will ever throw its hat down. the hardware ring. The current chip supply market makes that extremely unlikely…but maybe another day.

LOVE Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has opened up about the bullying hell that forced her to eat lunch in the toilet.

The former Turkish soap opera actress – who won the show with boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti – has opened up about the torment she suffered as a child.

Love Island’s Ekin-Su opened up in a very honest interview on Irish TV

She explained to Late show: “At school I struggled, I was bullied. I was quite overweight, I had no friends.

“I used to eat my lunch in the bathroom by myself. I locked myself in.

“I just felt like you know what, it doesn’t matter if I have my friends. Naturally, you just made friends who love you for you.”

Ekin-Su, 28, was speaking to Ryan Tubridy on Irish broadcaster RTE One, when the questions got serious.

He said: “People can get really serious about Love Island and talk about misogyny and bullying.

“Do you listen to that and do you take it seriously and say there’s this element and I’d like to talk about it or do you say you read too much into it which was kind of fun?”

She replied, “There will always be bullying in life. There’s bullying at work, there’s bullying at school, there’s bullying on the streets.

“People project onto you. The best thing you can do is be confident, smile and know who you are, be authentic.

“Don’t worry about those bullies, you know.”

Ekin-Su has lived a jet-setting lifestyle since stepping out of the Love Island villa and landing a mega-money modeling deal.

She flew from the show’s Mallorca base to London and Manchester – where Davide lives – before flying to America.

The star was met on her return to London by her brother, before traveling to Dublin to appear on Irish TV.

Ekin and Davide do a high-profile interview with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby this Monday morning.

Walking under the Jet Set’s thatched canopy is like teleporting to the tropics.

Tropical flowers and leaves adorn the wallpaper surrounding the interior entrance to this new location on Newburgh’s seafront. A long bar with a bamboo ceiling and black bar top lines the left wall. There’s bamboo and tiki-inspired art everywhere, including vintage tiki art, tropical bird statues, and, of course, tiki statues. There are bubble-like light fixtures in the indoor bar and bird-like ones in one of the seating areas. Authentic 1950s furniture is scattered throughout.

Then there is the plane.

Along one of the interior walls is the side of an airplane, windows and all, backlit with red lights.

Tables line the jet wall at The Jet Set tiki bar and restaurant in Newburgh.

Drinks :Orange County Tourism launches craft beverage pass, a chance to experience new tastes

Open on Fridays, the Jet Set tiki bar and restaurant is the brainchild of Michael and Alexandra Kelly, owners of the Newburgh flour store and Liberty Street Bistro in Newburgh, and their partners, beverage consultant Jessica Gonzalez, chef Maggie Lloyd, and Pat and Stephanie Nunnari, co-owners of Colorcube Print Co. (Stephanie also owns Lash Society). The Kellys are also preparing to bring a second Newburgh Flour Shop location in Poughkeepsie.

The team was initially hoping for a July opening.

“We are thrilled to finally open our doors and share this special space and concept with everyone,” said co-owner Alexandra Kelly. “We hope our guests find the Jet Set fun, unique and a place they want to come back to again and again.”

Another source of inspiration was Kode9’s book, Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear. Heavee named one of his own tracks “Sonic Warfare” and sent it to the founder of Hyperdub – it’s now the closing track of his EP. “I named the track ‘Sonic Warfare’ out of respect for his musical ideals,” they divulged. “It can be weaponized, and music doesn’t just have one purpose. And it comes back to my ideas of how I found electronic music – music doesn’t have to follow this format or this arrangement.

For Heavee, 2023 will mark 10 years that the producer has known Hyperdub, making this year’s EP a milestone in his career. One of the London label’s most famous signings was Heavee’s mentor, the late footwork pioneer, DJ Rashad. Their smile fills the screen of our Zoom call as they reminisce about the pioneering artist. “Even when I was out of town, I would send him music. When I was in school, I would send music. And he would leave me voicemails, criticizing me. Right away , if he liked it, he’d tell me. If he didn’t, he’d tell me,” Heavee says. “He helped me keep producing when I felt like I didn’t. had no reason to do so because I was in a new environment. And he made me continue. So when I came back I said I wanted to be in Teklife and [Rashad] was like, ‘Let’s do this’.

The two collaborated together on “It’s Wack” in 2013 for FlyLo FM, a radio station hosted by Flying Lotus in Grand Theft Auto V – a looping moment for video game enthusiast Heavee. “I never used any of the equipment they had, but my voice was something that Rashad felt like I could use as an instrument. – No, you have a great voice. Pause’ – it was just like he said so,” they fondly recall. The track was also featured on Heavee’s debut album “WFM,” released in 2018 on Teklife.

Like swapping moves or collaborating on choreography in times of animosity, Heavee is now trying to bring the game to new faces on the footwork scene. He jokes, “I don’t have a direct mentee or anyone I’m raising – I’m gonna raise a freak, yo!”

The support they received from Kode9 and DJ Rashad showed them the value of helping to raise a new generation. “I realize that we are not the end of everything, be everything. It will continue to grow with or without us and I prefer to be on the safe side. [I] just [want to] to be able to share something and help someone younger get to where I am right now, at least twice as fast and just as good.
