L’Orange ft. Blu – Alone (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 10th, 2013 by Hyphen

I know a lot of folks have been weirded out the last few years, but I’m not giving up on Blu. Not when he can still rhyme like this! This is the first single off French producer, L’Orange’s, new project, The Mad Writer.

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes on February 23rd, 2013 by Hyphen

Just came across this official video Yuna did for the TWINSMATIC remix to her “Live Your Life” single and now I’m on a hunt to find out more information about these producers.  Their Soundcloud page is blowing my mind right now.  Heavy.

Aloe Blacc – Green Lights (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 20th, 2011 by Hyphen

“There’s so many things to do / So many people I need to talk to”

Coming off a few days worth of vacation in Canada, that quote kinda sums up how I feel about life right now.  One of my favorite aspects to visiting a city like Vancouver is that the people up there are just far more friendly and outgoing (and interesting) than my fellow Americans.  Sorry folks, it’s true.  Every time I stepped out in Van City, I had fun conversations with people left and right.  Plus, they all instantly treated me like family.  Much appreciated y’all.

There are so many experiences I’m looking forward to having in life and if I can get green lights all along the trip like Aloe, life will be good.

Pigeon John – So Gangster (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 4th, 2011 by Hyphen

Pretty fresh and I’m a sucker for anything shot in Paris.  It’s also a great record as the weather finally starts to turn here in Seattle.  There’s not a city in the world that’s nicer than the 206 when the sun’s out…

This is how I feel when it’s sunny in Seattle

SebastiAn – “Embody,” directed by the always excellent So Me.  There’s a dope DJ Premier remix too, but you’ll have to search the GoogleWebs to find the mp3…

J. Cole ft. Drake – In The Morning (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 17th, 2011 by Hyphen

Cole and Drizzy could have made a larger production for the “In The Morning” video, but these visuals shot during their European string of concerts works nicely.  The best way to start your day!

This is crazy!

I’ve heard a few of them done better, but overall, this beatbox performance from France’s EKLIPS is bananas.  Oui, c’est bon.
