Kid Ink on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on August 6th, 2013 by Hyphen

Shout to Kid Ink for coming through the Sound Session studio recently and chopping it up.  We discussed his background and when he first realized he could make music a career, before getting in depth on the keys to his independent success and why he decided to sign with a major label. He had an interesting take on how labels are adapting to work better with artists like himself, who have a dedicated fan base before inking a deal.

Real cool dude, I enjoyed our convo.  Shout to Detooz Films on the cameras!

J. Pinder – A Learning Game (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 23rd, 2012 by Hyphen

Pinder heads out to Hawaii (and what also looks like Los Angeles) for the video to “A Learning Game” off his official debut album, Careless.  And while it’s shot fairly similar to Kid Ink’s “Time Of Your Life,” the clip turned out great.  When it comes to Seattle hip-hop, obviously Macklemore is getting a ton of notoriety (and rightly so), but JP is quietly having his own success around the country.  Couldn’t be happier to see him winning right now.  Keep going Pinder!

Kid Ink – Time Of Your Life (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 6th, 2012 by Hyphen

I’m a little late on the Kid Ink bandwagon, but I’m digging his newest single/video for “Time Of Your Life” (Jennifer Martinez isn’t hurting…at…ALL).  I’d love for this to take off at radio and with a recent remix adding Chris Brown and Tyga, his chances are pretty good. Kinda reminds me of some of Drizzy’s melodies during the hook. Not made one bit and looking forward to seeing him open our Summer Jam this weekend at the Gorge.

Get tickets here if you don’t have ’em already
