Flume ft. Ghostface Killah & Autre Ne Veut – Space Cadet (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 22nd, 2014 by Hyphen

Flume is an Australian producer who released a really good project, then remixed it and added all sorts of dope MC’s to the tracks (like Ghostface, Freddie Gibbs, Killer Mike, and more).  Here’s the trippy cartoon video for “Space Cadet.”

Not convinced, peep this record called “Insane” with Moon Holiday:

So dope.

Posted in Art, Videos on August 6th, 2011 by Hyphen

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..

= a trip of a lifetime.

Rick Mereki : Director, producer, additional camera and editing
Tim White : DOP, producer, primary editing, sound
Andrew Lees : Actor, mover, groover

Now I’m definitely taking a vacation…

Jay-Z & Kanye West – Watch The Throne (mini documentary)

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on July 23rd, 2011 by Hyphen

When “Otis” dropped this past week, I couldn’t help but chuckle at all the praise filled tweets and blogs, as if the track’s quality somehow caught folks off guard. It’s Hov and Yeezy! What do you expect?

This mini documentary really just teases us with what it might be like to live the uber-baller, can’t tell me nothin’ kind of life that Jay and Kanye exist in.  When you live in this plane, whatever you want to do, you just will it and it’s done. Want to record a masterpiece with your friends in Hawaii? No problem, MBDTF is your result.  Want to switch locales to Australia, rent castles, hang out with Russell Crowe, and immortalize him in music history?  You got it.

Despite a few folks trying to get their attention, there isn’t any competition in hip-hop for these two.  They live on the throne, we watch it.

Cee & Bekah – The Soul Movement, Vol. 3 (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on December 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homies Cee & Bekah traveled all the way from Australia to link up with Mick Boogie & Terry Urban and drop the latest edition of their Soul Movement mixtape series.  This one picks up right where Vol. 2 left off with an ill mix of dope rhymes and ill melodies.  Great beat selection too.  Cop this with the quickness and if you’ve been sleeping, you can actually download all 3 volumes off the Bandcamp link below.

Download here.

PUTS on OKPtv

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on December 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

GregTheDude and Tunji took OkayplayerTV around Los Angeles to link up with Thes-One and Double K, better known as the People Under The Stairs.  The duo talked about how they originally linked up, their recording history, their new Fun DMC album, and their video for “The Wiz.”  That clip is one of my favorites from this past year, though I never would have guessed that the weather was awful when they shot it in Australia.  It always looked like the perfect summer joint to me:

Sidenote: it’s not smart to watch a video like that on a day when we’re snowed in here in Seattle.  Even if it was freezing down there, it makes me miss summer like craaaazy.
