The head and heart don’t always agree. This is the struggle portrayed in the newest release by Tennessee-based band Hippie Speedball.
Titled “Don’t Think Twice,” this song crawls through your darkest thoughts and lets them dance to the psych-rock rhythm. It exposes the feeling of being in a toxic relationship and the war we all wage within to break free.
“Don’t Think Twice” comes hot and heavy on the tails of the band’s latest two protest singles, “FTP” and “People 2020,” and is the first of three new songs to be released. “Trouble” and “Acid Rain” are due to debut in the upcoming months along with new music videos for “FTP” and “Don’t Think Twice.”
Dylan Taylor’s, bandleader, lyrical storytelling, is elevated by the musical prowess of Daniel Demonica, Dennis Drumond, Jon Von Boehm, and Kirby Bland. The group’s unique blend of talent creates the sound that’s garnering them international attention.
“Don’t Think Twice” and check out Hippie Speedball now. Their new single comes out on the 15th!

Make Love Great Again is a track written to provide an antidote to the culture of hate that has been perpetuated by political leaders of recent times. The world is in flames, and now seems the opportune moment to release a song that has a positive message of hope. The catchy track is reminiscent of Pharrell’s “Happy”, but with added cutting political edge. Bringing people together is the theme, reuniting divided nations and focusing on love and compassion is the message.
Jeffrey has been moved by the traumatic events of the past few weeks, the slaying of Ahmaud Arbery, the murder of George Floyd and the many ongoing injustices around the planet. The world needs to change. Governments need to make positive moves to eliminate police brutality, social injustice and discrimination. People need to work together as one human family to make a better world.
“I have lived a very extraordinary life on different continents, and I have learned that basically all people aspire for a common universal commodity …. love. If we make love great again, we will all be great.“ Jeffrey Daniel
All funds from download sales of Make Love Great Again will raise funds for groups fighting for racial equality and social Justice. The song is available at most online retailers from June 15th . Hate Divides – Love Unites Heal The World Make Love Great Again

Stockholm, Sweden – Fiber optical connectivity specialists Pro Optix have launched two new series of Wavelength Division Multiplexers (WDM) called the Pro MINI high-density series and the Pro NANO ultra-high-density series. A WORLD FIRST solution with density at 300% and 600% greater than traditional multiplexer solutions the new next generation series allows users to significantly reduce their data center footprint whilst capitalising on next generation design features. World first achievements for the NANO series include the use of CS connectivity in a multiplexer, the possibility to fit 3 x 40 channels DWDM multiplexers within 1U and the possibility of the XL version to utilize all available 96 channels in a DWDM multiplexer within 1U, allowing a fibre pair to be split 96 times. Pro Optix have partnered with Senko to deliver this next generation in WDM technology with the patented CS technology.
The Pro MINI modular multiplexer series utilizes LC connectivity and can have up to 54 CWDM channels or 48 DWDM channels within 1U, the modular and fixed Pro NANO multiplexer series utilizes CS connectivity and can have up to 108 CWDM channels or 120 DWDM channels. Within 1U you can mix Pro MINI and Pro NANO modular cassettes and CWDM and DWDM, delivering an extremely flexible and scalable solution that can be installed and upgraded with quick-swap ability, and being passive requires no power. For smaller installations in branch offices both series can be wall mounted.
Tom Nordin, CEO at Pro Optix highlighted “The new Pro MINI and Pro NANO series multiplexers bring a new compact concept to the marketplace that delivers unrivalled density in a unique combination of flexibility. The major driver is to reduce costs through having a smaller rack space footprint but being able to split fibers at greater levels to allocate to specific services or customers is also a huge benefit and cost saver. It is a massively flexible and simple solution that allows you to mix LC and CS connectivity as well as CWDM and DWDM within 1U.” Adding “WDM multiplexing was once seen as a complicated solution that required a team of experts, but that vision has changed. It is now understood that multiplexing is a simple way to quickly enhance how a business utilizes fiber effectively, and this is enhanced by the fact that the solution is passive and therefore requires no power. Although the design of the multiplexer is new, the components within the design are proven technologies, so customers can immediately have a robust and reliable solution”.
Pro Optix multiplexers come with extensive warranties, pre-sales support and technical support, and is manufactured under ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
By utilising Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) you have the opportunity to greatly increase the capacity of your fiber by multiplexing optical light signals on a single optical fiber. By separating out the fiber into different channels you can give many different services or customers specific dedicated fiber capacity, which is far more cost effective than obtaining many different fibers to achieve the same scenario.
