Random Axe – Random Call (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 14th, 2011 by Hyphen

There’s nothing like the awkward pause during the chorus when I play the clean edit for “Random Call” on SNSS.  Sean, Guilty, and Black are currently dominating my car’s stereo, when I’m not being overwhelmed by bass from Sirius/XM.

Shout to Todd Angkasuwan on the visuals as well.  Great stuff.

Marco Polo & Ruste Juxx – Nobody (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 8th, 2010 by Hyphen

While the song is real dope (crazy beat from Marco especially), I must say…my dude Todd Angkasuwan killed it with this video.  Marco’s slap is classic.  Every time someone complains about artists like Drake and whatnot, I like to remind them that there’s plenty of that traditional  boom-bap craziness to beat you over the head with.  Duck Down has been holding it down on that front for 15 years.  Respect.

Newest visuals off KRS & Buck’s group album…Revolution on the cuts.  Looks like the homey Todd Angkasuwan should be working on the next Tron movie too, dope ish!

Raheem DeVaughn ft. Ludacris – Bulletproof (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Live Performances, Music Videos, Sound Session on October 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

I heard this video dropped, but I hadn’t had a chance to peep it yet until the homey Todd Angkasuwan alerted me via Twitter:

Yessir!  If you don’t remember, we had Raheem in studio last year for Sound Session and he blessed us with a little a capella preview of “Bulletproof,” peep game:

Todd definitely did the song justice too.  Great record and great visuals!

Marco Polo & Torae – Double Barrel (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

(“n****s got wait till 2 in the morn’ to hear Tor get on/it’s like that now, it won’t be like that for long” – true words…SNSS can relate)

I swear, when I watched this for the first time, Tor reached through my monitor and slapped the ish out me.  It’s that hard.

Cop Marco & Torae’s excellent Double Barrel project if you haven’t already…though if you haven’t, Tor’s probably slapped you too…and rightly so.

KRS-One & Buckshot – Robot (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Sports on July 8th, 2009 by Hyphen

The visuals for the “real death of auto-tune,” KRS & Buck’s “Robot,” just dropped and they do not disappoint one bit.  Dope track + true lyrics + crazy graphics = a smash.  Todd Angkasuwan is really becoming one of the premier directors in the game.  Be on the lookout for Survival Skills dropping on September 15th on Duck Down.  The 206’s own Geologic from the Blue Scholars will be on the record as well!

Now, what’s your favorite robot?  I’ll offer up the hilarious awkwardness of Peter Crouch’s goal celebrations:

So awful hahahaha.

Reflection Eternal f/Res – Back Again (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

Since my day job works with music videos, I often get a sneak peak at clips before they get released.  We got this one in last week and since I’ve always loved the track (the beat is banoodles), I was hoping the visuals would live up to it.  Thankfully, Todd Angkasuwan, one of the illest up and coming directors in the game, did the song justice and killed it with the one take approach.

Shout to Talib, Corey, Tunji, S.A.S., and the whole Blacksmith fam.  Cop “Back Again” on iTunes right here.
