Redefining the groove: Madita (2)

Tuesday, July 18, 2006 by , under

Deep electro-ambient/latin beats, sometimes blue, sometimes very cinematic (a la Shirley Bassey), an expressive voice reminiscent of Telepopmusique's Angela McCluskey (in a softer way, though), Madita is AdKrispies's latest find and recommendation for your nights of chillicizin'.

Her eponymous debut CD, "Madita" (see left picture for cover), is a pure joy to hear. Produced by Vlado Dzihan of Dzihan and Kamien fame, she was first discovered on their internationally-acclaimed album Gran Riserva.

I can't really go on rambling about how good the album is: check out for yourself. Head to Madita's website for samples of her music, galleries, and more about her.

Viral : Fiat Wants You! 1

Tuesday, July 18, 2006 by , under


















In 500 days, Fiat will be launching their new Fiat 500. In a smart gesture full of online-branded-contenty goodness, they decided to launch a website, originally dubbed Fiat 500 on which you have a chance partake in the fun. Your mission: completely create the Fiat 500 brand image, through a series of fun little exercizes.

For example, you have Fiat 500 Wants A Mascot, where you can draw a mascot for the Fiat500 and send it to them (you can check out what people already came up with here). Then, there's 500 Faces, a fun activity in which you send a pic of you and your friends, and have it morphed with a Fiat product. Also, there's also the Fiat Concept Lab, where you'll customize the Fiat500 the way you want her to look.

More activities and fun at http://www.fiat500.com/ .

Meet the modern-age gramophone: the iDeck. It allows you to dock in your iPod, and have some cool album art displayed as your mp3s are playing. The wide touchscreen actually represents a larger version of your iPod wheel, and you can access various functions from it.Made by genius brit designer Michael Kennedy.
