ALEX CUBA

Multi-award winning Latin singer/instrumentalist professionally known as Alex Cuba releases a fourth video for the 2018 Grammy nominated “Lo Unico Constante” (Caracol Records/Fontana North-InGrooves), “El Dia De Hoy” recorded in Montreal and Victoria Canada has a video shot in the small town of Smithers, BC where the artist calls home. Produced by Facundo Gastiazoro and Taylor Fox (the creative team behind the Alex Cuba’s Latin Grammy winning video “Eres Tu”), the video follows a character evading pursuers looking for a special suitcase with incredible creatures inside. The noir themed cat and mouse video wants to expose the daily sensory oppression of our 24/7 connectivity and the barage of information that doesnt allow one to think or dream and how one must become like a criminal stealing moments, so that “the night allows us to dream“.

Alex is currently on tour in the US with dates in Mexico and Canada throughout the summer.

TRANSLATION (REQUESTED)

El cuatro veces ganador del Latín Grammy, cantante, compositor, multinstrumentista, profesionalmente conocido como Alex Cuba lanza el cuarto vídeo de su más reciente producción discográfica nominada al Grammy “Lo Único Constante”.  El título de la canción que ahora plasma su mensaje visual en la pantalla es “El Día De Hoy” y el vídeo ha sido grabado en su entereza en la bellísima y remota localidad de Smithers, BC, donde el artista ha residido ya por varios años.

Producido por Facundo Gastiazoro y Taylor Fox (el mismo equipo creativo que antes Alex escogiera para crear su vídeo ganador del Latín Grammy “Eres Tu” ) El nuevo vídeo cuenta la historia de un personaje que evade a unos perseguidores que buscan con fiereza una maleta especial la cual contiene a unas pequeñas y mágicas criaturas. Capturado casi en su totalidad en estilo noir, esta historia visual se propone exponer la opresión diaria en que se vive hoy por estar tecnológicamente conectados 24/7, navegando en un mar sin fin de información que fácil termina impidiéndonos pensar. Sutilmente nos sugiere que se debe uno convertir en un criminal que roba momentos para poder de esa manera dejar que la noche nos permita de nuevo soñar. Alex se encuentra actualmente de gira por Los Estados Unidos así como también en Mexico y Canadá a lo largo de todo el verano.

ARTIST SELECT: PRESENTED BY STICK N MOVE / SHADOWBOX

As we transition from our second round of beta testing and analysis, its the proper time to launch a multifaceted piece on our interactive mag, exposing many of the musical artists we have connected with and/or whom have submitted to our network. Our multi-media platform offers artists worldwide an opportunity to work, earn, and share profits through our systematic and sustainable business/revenue model. Building out our infrastructure with new technology that’s permitting us to operate in the manner we envisioned, is a dream come true. And the dream we speak of, couldn’t ignite without one submission from an artist. From one, interest grew, and we must take our time to humbly thank so many of the creators (along with their: Bandmates, Agents, Labels, Managers, PR Representatives, Publicists, and/or Other). 

Our lists boast more prospective participants than we could have ever imagined, that have submitted to our network to distribute, share, promote, and contribute their passion. It means more than words can say, and due diligence on our behalf, to support and promote their endeavors, is in motion 24/7 until the end of time. Please look for the new Shadowbox Platform on Blockchain arriving in 2019. For now, please look to Shadowbox MVMNT as we will be displaying a diverse tray filled with many of our submitted creators. I conclude by stating that the creative world is moving swiftly, you never know what you may have missed while soaking up another experience courtesy of the millions of artists making their presence daily. Therefore, while sharing the art of our contributors, content, commentary, and media listed is dated between 2014-2018. Again…..you may never know what you could have missed. Throwback and stay timeless…

Much Love & Respect,

John Whitman, Founder
