iPhone Ringtones

Posted in Joints, Random Ish on November 25th, 2010 by Hyphen

As much as I love my iPhone 4, the system for creating and importing ringtones is pretty wack (even as an Apple fan, I loathe iTunes).  With that in mind, I decided to knock out a bunch of ringtones for files that were sitting in front of me so I could sync to my phone in one fell swoop.  If you’re a fellow iPhone user, here’s a link for about 40 different .m4r files ready to go.

Artists include A Tribe Called Quest, Big K.R.I.T., Bilal, Clipse, Dr. Dre, Drake, D-Sisive, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Mos Def, Notorious B.I.G., The Physics, The Roots, Theophilus London, and Wu-Tang Clan.  Also, being a radio DJ (and a civilized person), I used clean edits so you don’t have to worry about any inappropriate ringtones in public.  Enjoy…

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.”

J-Hen (of Tha Bizness) makes a beat on his iPhone

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

As we continue to prove, Seattle’s making huge moves in the music game.  Helping lead the pack are J-Hen and Dow Jones, collectively known as Tha Bizness.  When they’re not producing tracks for artists like 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, T.I., R. Kelly, and more, they’re coming up with crazy stuff like the above video.  J-Hen shows you how to cook up a beat on your new iPhone, assuming you’ve copped one.  Looks dope, but I’m kind of addicted to my Blackberry.  Until my man Budo tells me to switch, I’m waiting for the Bold.

Speaking of Hen, check out last week‘s Sound Session to hear his childhood friends, The Parker Brothaz, talk about his production success.  He produced the Killer Mike joint, “Pressure,” that’s killing the blogs these days.  206/253/360/425 up!

Spotted on illRoots.
