ApSci – Under Control (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 15th, 2009 by Hyphen

Dana Diaz-Tutaan + Raphael LaMotta = ApSci.  Peep how this video came together:

“The main story on it is that it was shot using an iPhone, a portable printer and a webcam. The printouts are from us performing to webcam on a mac. The webcam video was converted to black & white, and printed out at 5 frames per second (4 up on a page, cut by hand). We then walked around different cities we were touring and shot the photos in sequence. Every frame in the clip is a picture, no video was shot. No special effects in post-production. About 4,000 pictures were edited into the clip (whew). It starts in Brooklyn, goes to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Honolulu and ends in Sydney.”

Throwback: Raphael Saadiq ft. D’Angelo – Be Here

Posted in Artists, Joints, Throwbacks on June 25th, 2008 by Hyphen


The official long distance relationship anthem.  Good looooooooord we need new D’Angelo in our lives.  Thankfully, it looks like that might just be happening…finally.  I’ll believe it when I hear it though.  In the meantime, we’ve got joints like this one from Raphael Saadiq’s criminally underrated Instant Vintage album to look back upon.

Check the video too.

“See, I got more than just some good d**k and some money…”  Classic.
