Pete Rock interview at Amoeba Music

This is a little old but it’s actually one of the better interviews that I’ve seen with Pete Rock, who normally stays pretty guarded and low key during press interaction.  Pete’s a legend to anyone in the know, but I still don’t think he gets the props he deserves.  He’ll always be underrated to me when compared to the other great producers.

Shout to Paul and the Amoeba family for sending this through.

Murs live at Amoeba Music

Posted in Artists, Live Performances on December 19th, 2008 by Hyphen

I think I remember seeing this footage go around the blogs back at the end of September, but I never posted it up for some reason.  As I mentioned in the post on his Sound Session appearance, Murs is one of the hardest working artists out there.  He consistently puts his all into his live performances, and that’s on display here in the footage from Amoeba’s Hollywood store.  Peep the video and watch him run through tracks like “Better Than The Best,” “H-U-S-T-L-E,” “Bad Man,” “Can It Be,” “Silly Girl,” “Lookin’ Fly,” and more.

Thanks to Paul for sending this through.
