Avatar Young Blaze ft. Isabella du Graf – Wishing On A Dream (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 4th, 2010 by Hyphen

The homey Blaze teamed up with the other homey, Jon Augustavo, to whip up a video for “Wishing On A Dream” featuring Isabella du Graf.  While this one wasn’t shot up here in Seattle like the previous video I posted, or most of Jon Jon’s work, it looks great and it’s another example of the talent here in the 6.

Sound Session #259 (5-16-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on May 17th, 2010 by Hyphen

As we push onward and upward into our 5th year of Sound Session, we had another great episode.  While J. Moore was out in Philadelphia for the Red Bull Big Tune beat battle, I was joined in the studio by Sol and Jack The Ripper, two very dope local artists putting in work these days.  We also played part of our interview with Big Sean (full interview coming soon…I hope!) and some crazy records from Theophilus London, Big K.R.I.T., Shad, Homeboy Sandman, Nas & Damian Marley, and more.

On the personal tip, I finally saw Avatar (um, insane on Blu-ray, suppose I shoulda caught it in IMAX 3D), but the most impressive Blues over the weekend had to be Chelsea achieving the double in the English Premier League.  The big homey Didier Drogba is simply unstoppable right now and he scored another cracker (yes…that’s what soccer folks call a great goal…and yes, it’s fun to yell out “cracker” when celebrating):

You ready for the World Cup?

I don’t know the back story behind it, but this is crazy.  “Comprised using chords, bass notes, and vocal samples” from one of the best films of ’09, Up.

Sidenote, just saw Up In The Air, which was fantastic as well.  Next up is Avatar, but I need to wait until the furor around the 3D IMAX shows dies down a bit…
