Ellie Goulding – Tessellate (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 7th, 2013 by Hyphen

Ellie’s video for her cover of Alt-J’s “Tessellate” is great.  Super sexy record, plus black and white stylish shots of Paris?  Yep!

We’re celebrating our 8 year anniversary of SNSS tonight.  That’s a lot of shows.  Lots of numbers on the boards.

Yuna – Live Your Life (TWINSMATIC Remix) (video)

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.

Hit-Boy – Jay-Z Interview (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 8th, 2012 by Hyphen

No, this isn’t super producer Hit-Boy interviewing Jay-Z. Instead, this is Hit…rapping? And it turned out dope! Bink! on production for this record, introducing the producer to the world as a MC. I’m rooting for this kid, but he probably doesn’t need it. With all his success lately, it seems like a foregone conclusion that he’ll be a major player in the game for quite some time.

BJ The Chicago Kid – Dream II (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 14th, 2012 by Hyphen

BJ’s “Dream II” video features footage of his recent trip to one of the best cities in the world, Paris. With all due respect to The Weeknd, Miguel, and Frank Ocean, BJ’s Pineapple Now-Laters might be the best R&B release of the past year or so.  Stop sleeping.

Jay-Z & Kanye West – N****s In Paris (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on February 9th, 2012 by Hyphen

I was pretty apprehensive when I heard this was a “live” video, but I actually like what they’ve done here. Mixing in live footage with what appears to be staged model shots (or I suppose that really could be the LA crowd…they’re winning with the females down there) and alternating between live and studio audio was a nice touch. Plus, as long as you aren’t prone to epileptic seizures (no, seriously…heed the warning at the beginning), the effects are great. Kanye even gets directorial credit on this one. Yeezy taught you.

Adele – Someone Like You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 30th, 2011 by Hyphen

While I’m standing by my earlier pick for song of the year, this has to be right up there. Toss in a black and white video shot in Paris that complements the song nicely (letting it star on its own) and I’m all in.

Instant classic from arguably the best voice we have in music right now.

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…

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!

Aloe Blacc – Take Away Show, Pt. 1 (video)

Posted in Art, Artists, Live Performances on October 23rd, 2010 by Hyphen

Aloe and company perform two records live in Parisian cafes.  While “Hey Brother” was dope, this rendition of “I Need A Dollar” was insane.  I’m still happy I was able to witness this in person too.  I think I need to leak the mp3 of that performance soon…

Speaking of Paris, after watching Robin Hood last night, I officially have a crush on Lea Seydoux:
