Rochelle Jordan – Follow Me (video)

Posted in Artists, Videos on January 26th, 2014 by Hyphen

Rochelle is one of the dopest up and coming R&B singers around, and yet another talented artist from Toronto. The T-Dot has really had it on lock the last few years, very impressive. Can’t help but hear a little Aaliyah in this KLSH produced jam. Baby Girl would be proud.

Sampha – Too Much (video)

Posted in Artists, Videos on November 9th, 2013 by Hyphen

The song that everyone knows now that Drake sampled it gets its own video, though there aren’t any shots of Sampha himself, other than playing the keys.  Fantastic song though.  Feel free to put this on loop.  Forever.

Jason Sudeikis as Coach Lasso (NBC Sports Premier League Film)

Posted in Comedy, Sports, Videos on August 3rd, 2013 by Hyphen

Being a huge English Premier League fan, I have mixed feelings about NBC Sports acquiring the US TV rights starting this upcoming season. On one hand, at least it’s not at Fox, whose production value for FSC has always been abysmal, and being part of the NBC family should help increase the exposure to the US.  However, obviously I’d prefer the rights to be owned by my company, ESPN, plus I’m a little concerned this piece above will be representative of how they cover a foreign sports league.

Concerns aside, I LOL’d.

Shad – Flying Colours (preview)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos, Videos on July 4th, 2013 by Hyphen

Similar to my favorite “freestyle” video of all time, Shad went in on the “Grammy Family” beat for about 7 minutes and absolutely murdered it.  So many bars, so much knowledge.  Best writer in the game, imo.  Peep the lyrics here.

Some great footage recapping Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ two shows in Seattle, courtesy of Ryan and Jon Jon. Watching Mack’s ascent has been amazing and something that the entire region should be proud of. He’s doing it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this documentary from Jabari on the homies Mack & Ryan, shot during the lead up to their stellar album, The Heist, and including behind the scenes footage of the “Thrift Shop” music video.  Shout to everyone involved with this.

The Physics – Tomorrow People (Kickstarter Campaign)

Posted in Artists, Videos on July 15th, 2012 by Hyphen

As I’ve mentioned numerous times on TAOD, Twitter, SNSS, Facebook, various hip-hop panels, and just about any other place someone’s made the mistake of giving me a voice, the Physics are my favorite musicians in the Northwest.  They make the exact kind of hip-hop I love: soulful, genuine, complex, smooth, laid back, dope music.  They’ve put out a few projects over the years (which I highly recommend you cop right here) and now they’re back with their third full length LP, Tomorrow People.

They’re asking for assistance via a Kickstarter Campaign and any support you can provide will be well worth it.  Cop the album, a shirt, a hat, or even just donate a dollar to support the cause.  Anything you can provide is appreciated.  More information in the video above and the copy below:

After making music together for over a decade and a half, we are close to finishing our third full-length album, Tomorrow People. We are excited to release it on August 25. All we need is help from you.

Tomorrow People is pretty much about dope raps, dope beats, and dope hooks. After putting out our last LP, Love is a Business, and touring with the Blue Scholars last fall, we went straight back to the lab to produce a rap record that is more lyrical than our last, featuring some of Seattle’s best like Jake One, Sol, Grynch, Vitamin D, J. Pinder, and more. With this release, we are on the cusp of attaining our goals as musicians, knowing that tomorrow is unknown, but hoping that tomorrow will be amazing.

Those who pledge will have access to a wide range of incentives, including digital and physical copies of the album before the release date, Kickstarter-exclusive shirts and snapback hats, a verse from Thig, a beat from Justo, invites to a private Seattle hip hop BBQ, and more.

All funds raised through this campaign will help fund the mixing, mastering, duplication, and promotion of Tomorrow People. Anything we raise above our goal will go straight into a still-unannounced fall tour. The more backers we get, the more cities we can play in.

Please help us spread the word, and help us bring our music straight to you! Your support is GREATLY appreciated.
