Choklate – Suns Out / Grown Folks (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes, Videos on June 16th, 2009 by Hyphen

Awww yeah, the homegirl Chok just dropped the video for 2 joints off her new album, To Whom It May Concern.  Trust when I tell you that not only is she one of the most talented singers in our lovely city, but she’s right there at the top of the pack nationally.  People are starting to catch on, so hop on the bandwagon before you’re too late!

Also, you may remember the Vitamin D “Suns Out” beat from our Cornerstone Mixtape where Thig Natural of the Physics ripped a little freestyle intro.  Have you downloaded the tape yet?

And just in case you needed more proof that Seattle is jam packed full of talent, peep this video of KDCutz remixing “Suns Out.”

Wow.

John Legend ft. Andre 3000 – Green Light (Cook Classics Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes on October 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

Green Light

The homey Cook Classics is clearly one of the dopest up and coming producers in the game and here’s his latest production: a remix to John & Andre’s insta-classic, “Green Light.”  I had a chance to help make this remix happen and I couldn’t be prouder of the result.  Shout to Joel van Dijk on the guitar and Joe Gonzales on the bass as well…everyone killed it.

John Legend ft. Andre 3000 – “Green Light (Cook Classics Remix)”

If you’re sleeping, Cook came through Sound Session a few weeks back and you can peep the show here.  We played some of the stuff he did with TiRon and Avriel Epps, which is all incredible.  Be on the lookout for more of his beats on projects by Pacific Division, U-N-I, Diamond D, Noah King, Inverse, and more.

5-C’s like what.

Chyea.  For those missing my Wack Lyric of the Day posts, this is hotter than LA sunshine.  Happy now?  Don’t worry, WLotD will be back soon.

But nah, for real, this is heat.  In case you can’t read above, the homies Thurz & Y-O linked up with Evidence, Big Pooh, Aloe Blacc, Fashawn, Mickey Factz, Theo, and Kes Kaos for the remix to their classic “Beautiful Day” cut.  Get that:

Kanye West – Love Lockdown (Hatchmatik Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes on September 23rd, 2008 by Hyphen

Ye

I don’t usually post single songs, nor electro/dance joints, but I’m making an exception for this.  I already stated that I’m digging the original, and this mix takes it to a crazy new level.  Club banger.

John Legend ft. Andre 3000 – Green Light (Afroganic Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes on September 2nd, 2008 by Hyphen

Johnny Legend

That picture never gets old.  Here’s a brand new reggae-tinged remix of John & Andre’s smash “Green Light,” put together by the British Afroganic crew.  Definitely a different vibe than the original, but pretty damn ill.  Check it out:

Amy Winehouse – Stronger Than Me (Domingo Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes on August 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

QN5‘s Domingo remixed a classic joint from Amy’s first album and they synced it up to the original video.  After one listen, I still prefer the original, but that’s cause I’ve bumped that one about 23981293218 times (and cringed at the homophobic lines each time).  Domingo did his thing on the remix though, good ish.  Some of you younger cats might be familiar with part of this song, since B.o.B. sampled it for “Grip Your Body.”  And the nerve of them to label it as “featuring Amy Winehouse.”  I hate when people do that.

Sidenote: get yourself together Amy, we need you back.

Robin Thicke – Magic (video plus remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos, Remixes on July 17th, 2008 by Hyphen

I bet this looks much doper in higher quality, but I didn’t really feel like waiting around for that.  The perfect summer track.  As a bonus, here’s the unofficial “remix” that Freeway dropped a verse on:

Wack Lyric of the Day, 7-7-08

Posted in Joints, Music Videos, Remixes, Throwbacks, Wack Lyric of the Day on July 7th, 2008 by Hyphen

Heard this last night on the ‘slow jams’ program I always check on my way into Sound Session, and I remembered the line that always stood out to me:

“He’s mine/You may have had him once, but I got him all the time”
–Mokenstef, “He’s Mine”

Technically, that’s flawed logic.  If she had him onc — oh, nevermind.  Absolutely classic track from Monifa, Kenya, and Stephanie…I wonder what ever happened to them.  Enjoy the mp3 if you can’t find your copy, and I’m tossing in the remix with Grand Puba as well:

Throwback: Soulive ft. Talib Kweli – Bridge To Bama (Hi-Tek Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes, Throwbacks on July 3rd, 2008 by Hyphen

Soulive

While I was digging through the archives to grab that bonus Reks track, I noticed this classic joint by Soulive and thought I’d post it up.  Talib Kweli jumped on one of their tracks in 2002 and Hi-Tek remixed it, creating this ill, but often slept on, Reflection Eternal track.  Peep it.

Soulive ft. Talib Kweli – “Bridge To Bama (Hi-Tek Remix)”

So smooth with it.
