FYF has been my favorite festival since its early years, born in the underground scenes of Los Angeles as a place for the weirdos, punks, indie kids, and occasional obscure hip hop act. As its grown over the years, its become a renowned festival capable of pulling both obscure acts and legends, as told by the fact that this year Missy Elliott, Frank Ocean, Iggy Pop, Nicolas Jaar, Motor City Drum Ensemble, and NIN were able to be seen in one location.
FYF is finally upon us, and with it will come an eclectic mesh of hip hop, techno, pop, and more. It's the festival for the cool kids in Los Angeles, and the lineup manages to reflect some of the most talented voices of today's generation, capturing hard-to-get acts that often get missed in the region's bigger festivals. While we love all of the names on the list, there are a select few we're absolutely ecstatic about catching at the festival.
Shiftee is always a surprise, uncompromising in both his personal musical endeavors and in his record label. His latest project is his '& Beyond' series, and tomorrow he will be premiering his second release, and we're excited to present the latest track "Watch Yourself" featuring the musical mastery of MoBo the Great. The song itself is ethereal and yet still with a highly contagious musical beat, and the resulting work showcases Shiftee's ability to showcase emotion on the dancefloor.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
