Rive Music Video Promotion and Distribution presents: Chrystabell – The Midnight Star Tour and “Clouds For Breakfast”
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, USA, May 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following shows scheduled in New York on May 27, and Philadelphia on May 28, Chrystabell embarks on an EU & UK musical escapade; her Midnight Star Tour. The Midnight Star Tour, titled after her latest album, will dazzle audiences in 10 countries this June, as Chrystabell takes to the stage in Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hungary, the Netherlands, and Austria, with UK shows in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Brighton, Hove and London. Visit Chrystabell’s official website for show dates and further information: https://chrystabell.com
Tomorrow, on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, Monday May 16, Chrystabell is releasing her official music video for “Clouds For Breakfast”, coinciding with the celestial alignment. “Clouds For Breakfast” follows the music video for “Suicide Moonbeams” which enchanted fans worldwide earlier this year. Both showcase the most visionary work yet from the Texas-based artist—a hyper-creative polymath whose past endeavors include a series of musical projects with filmmaker / luminary David Lynch and a central role on Twin Peaks: The Return—Midnight Star ultimately casts an indelible spell while radically magnifying our sense of possibility.
Within the very first moments of her new album Midnight Star, Chrystabell fully transports the listener into a dimension of her own making, a sci-fi fantasia as resplendent and glittering as her mind itself. Chrystabell’s fifth studio album and debut release for Love Conquered Records, Midnight Star takes its title from its lead character, a beneficent being seeking to save humanity from life on a troubled Earth. “The record is essentially the soundtrack to a glamo-futurist TV show that’s never existed,” explains Chrystabell, who names cult sci-fi films like Liquid Sky among her main touchstones for the project. “Each song is an episode, a different lifetime for Midnight Star until she comes into the full realization of her potentiality. It’s her hero’s journey, and my hope is that it might help others to open up to the divine, the erotic, the absurd, and everything else encapsulated in the work.”
“Sensual, ethereal…like a nightclub act from a shadow dimension, one that’s glamorous and sexy but also on the cusp of cosmic chaos.” – Wall Street Journal
Produced by her longtime collaborator Christopher Smart and recorded at Ice Cream Factory Studio in Austin, Midnight Star embodies an otherworldly sound fitting of its fantastical narrative. In dreaming up the album’s lavishly detailed collision of post-disco and synth-pop and space-age psychedelia, Chrystabell deliberately strayed from the moody urgency of her past work, such as 2019’s Feels Like Love and 2017’s We Dissolve (made with producer John Parish, who’s also worked with the likes of PJ Harvey and Sparklehorse). “This is music that has the quality of flight; this is about lifting up,” says Chrystabell. “We’re moving into the Age of Aquarius, and things are becoming more ethereal right now, and I was feeling that within myself—that it’s time to move like light and air.” At the same time, Midnight Star elegantly spotlights the luminous vocal presence she’s brought to the stage in headlining sold-out tours across the globe over the past decade, once again proving her rare ability to stun and captivate with even the subtlest of expression.
Chrystabell first joined forces with Lynch for a song featured in his 2006 film Inland Empire, and later worked with him on her 2011 album This Train and the 2016 EP Somewhere in the Nowhere. Over the past few years, she’s undergone a full-tilt liberation of her creative spirit, embracing a more potent sense of freedom than she’d ever felt before. “With this project in particular, there was a distinct lack of self-imposed limitation on what was possible,” says Chrystabell. “To a certain degree, I’d always had some idea of how I fit into the world of music—but in order for my art to have real integrity, I had to dismantle those ideas of whatever it was I thought I was supposed to be. Where I am now is so much less fragmented; I feel far more realized as an artist and a person, and that’s where this music was coming from.”
For Chrystabell, the making of Midnight Star hinged upon a profound creative breakthrough that’s brought her infinitely closer to fulfilling her purpose as an artist. “In a way this work came from my wanting to create something representative of my appreciation for the artists who’ve come before me, whose music has helped me expand my own inner awareness and provided clues to the great mysteries of existence, and also helped me accept the parts that cannot be known,” she says. “Music and meditation have always been the mediums that have given me the most potential to gain access to greater aspects of Self and my understanding of truth with a big ‘T.’ This album is my offering to others, an invitation for a musical adventure that may take them closer to that mystical place. I think it’s an auspicious moment in time for everyone to be seeking and finding that expansion. It’s my wildest dream that Midnight Star can help guide the way.” Be guided and soak in the light emanating from Chrystabell and The Midnight Star – purchase your tickets today.

So long as the supplements industry remains largely unregulated, it is critical for the consumer to look for official and credible third-party certifications.
FLORIDA, MIAMI, UNITED STATES, May 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2021 the dietary supplement industry had a net worth of a whooping USD 151.9 billion, built by thousands of different brands, many of them labeled plant based, organic, Vegan, NSF Sport, kosher, and more. But with an industry so big, to what extent can you actually trust the brands? This is the value of third-party audits and certifications.
Dietary supplements are regulated by the FDA as food, despite the fact many supplements present with strong biological effects. This is also important for Vegan label claimed vitamins, because the FDA does not regulate the word Vegan, which means inconsistent use of the word is unreliable for the consumer. BeVeg Vegan certification has a global Vegan standard and is partnered with third-party technical administrators leading the supplements world, like NSF.
What does NSF Certification mean? NSF certification is the gold standard for supplement certification for safety, purity, and accurate dosing. Now, NSF has a Vegan certification offering that confirms Vegan label integrity status at the factory level and can be coupled with and bundled with other NSF supplement and sport certifications. So long as the supplements industry remains largely unregulated, it is critical for the super consumer interested in ingredients and processes, and for consumer health and safety to look for and demand these third-party audits on their consumable products.
BeVeg is an ISO accredited Vegan certification standard, and as such, sets high standards to protect the consumer. Plant based vitamins are as the name suggests, usually is derived from plants. Notably, when plants are growing, heavy metals like copper and zinc in the earth are absorbed, which in itself is a natural process. However, some can be dangerous when consumed in larger amounts. The problem with supplements is that there can sometimes be contamination of plants with high concentrations of these heavy metals, causing toxicity in the body – and there’s very little industry regulation. It is up to the manufacturer how they want to test for contaminants and active components, some being more thorough than others. In fact, only in California, are products required by law to even include warning labels about such potential contaminants.
This is the added value of NSF certification bundled with the official and globally recognized BeVeg Vegan trademark. Super consumers care about their health, environment, and ingredient and process certifications. As the supplement industry grows at an astronomical rate, the consumer can rest assured and rely on brands that do third-party testing, as approved by NSF and BEVEG for accurate label claims that go above and beyond existing regulations for a sector that is mostly unregulated.

CUBIQ FOODS LOGO
Cargill bridge round is 5.75 million Euros (USD 6 M, GBP 4.8M), sourcing key ingredients as a strategic partner to CUBIQ FOODS, a leader in alternative fats
MADRID, SPAIN, May 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — CUBIQ FOODS, the Spanish alternative-fat solutions innovator for food, has raised a total of 5.75 million Euros (USD 6 M, GBP 4.8M) from four investors: Cargill, Moira Capital Partners, SGEIC and Newtree Impact.
This round of investment allows CUBIQ FOODS to expand commercial and production operations in North America and Europe, as well as to launch new products into a growing customer base. Cargill’s investment is the first step in a strategic partnership that includes a product development plan and a commercial agreement to market and sell CUBIQ FOODS’ products.
CUBIQ FOODS was founded in late 2018 and is a pioneer in alternative-fats solutions for food applications with a growing customer base. By 2020, it raised 10 million Euros in a Series A led by Moira Capital Partners and Blue Horizon Ventures, grew its team to 50 people, developed 3 product lines and started the commercialization of an innovative fat replacer, with customers in Spain, the UK, Ireland and the U.S.
The founders, Dr Raquel Revilla (CTO) and Andrés Montefeltro, believe that there is a big opportunity to transform the food chain into a healthier, tastier, sustainable and affordable one for all. The incorporation of sustainable ingredients like CUBIQ FOODS’ alternative-fats solutions can become key in this transformation.
In mid-2021, CUBIQ FOODS successfully launched plant-based, sustainable Go!Drop®. Go!Drop® is a fat replacer that offers improved juiciness, full flavor profile, fewer calories, less saturated fats and only 20% oil. It reduces oil use and environmental impact compared to standard product solutions. Go!Drop® is a viable alternative to animal fats in processed meat products, dairy derivatives, sauces, bakery, confectionery and saturated vegetable fats (such as coconut oil) in vegan food products.
In late 2022, CUBIQ FOODS will launch Go!Mega3®, a new generation of microencapsulated omega-3 for ‘functional foods’ with high omega-3 content. Multilayer microencapsulation protects the highly concentrated essential oils, maintaining their properties without any of the fish flavors. This can help food manufacturers to deliver recommended daily intake of omega-3 into new, affordable products to support optimal health, particularly the cardiovascular and the central nervous system.
By early 2023, CUBIQ FOODS will launch its first cultivated fat-based ingredient for food applications in the U.S. market. The cultivated fat ingredient helps to more closely replicate the taste and texture of traditional meat in plant-based food alternatives.
“Consumer interest in plant-based protein continues to be a strong trend, expanding the innovation opportunity for food manufacturers looking to address this demand,” said Vivek Cherian, Meat and Dairy Alternatives Category Leader for Edible Oils at Cargill. “Our strategic partnership with CUBIQ FOODS will help us better serve our customers by accelerating the development of plant-based alternatives that offer the taste, texture and flavor, as well as the nutritional profile and sustainability story, that they and their consumers desire.”
