One of the best PR stunts I have ever seen executed. Remote controlled planes disguised as human beings, circle over New York City. Well done!
Yes it’d more footage from D’Angelo’s triumphant return to stage. There’s a couple more clips after the break and you can go right here and watch him debut a few new songs. Yup we got your early morning figured out all for you. You’re welcome.
Another in the series of in depth interviews by Dee Vasquez, this time with the rising star out of Atlanta. A lot of people are writing Chainz off as a one hit wonder but if they knew how long he had been grinding I don’t think they would. Perhaps this interview will help.
Just watch. I got hip to Feist whilst putting together my latest mixtape, but this video is cinematic enough to deserve a post on it’s own. Feist makes some nice laid back ethereal but still funky music if you’re wondering or anything.
Even if you’re not a huge fan of the Aliens franchise like I am this is one well directed and slightly creepy trailer. Damn we gotta wait till fall for this? I’m going to need a demo before then.
Homage is a music concert series honoring the musical giants responsible for altering the way our music is sampled, felt and heard.
For their contributions and influence on jazz, soul, hip-hop, R&B and neo-soul, EVFA & ArtDontSleep hosts its third installment of Homage with back-to-back live performances by Phil Cohran accompanied by his sons, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and William Hart, paired with Venice Dawn, who are currently producing a collaborative album.
DJ sets by Lefto & DJ Spinna, Anthony Valadez, Expo, Seano and Rani D with Azul 213 hosting the festivities.
To help celebrate and promote the event above the Brass Ensemble has released their version of the Outkast classic SpottieOttie you know the rest of it. Anyway this is helping lovely with this hangover I’m nursing right now, so I’m sure it will do well to brighten up your day as well. Sit back and enjoy and if you are in Los Angeles on the 23rd check the show out, sounds like it will be well worth your while.
I’m still not entirely sold on the A$AP movement but that Demons joint kind of goes. You can hit the jump for that, but Trilla is up top. Also pick up his album, Live Love A$AP which Preezy selected as one of the top independent releases last year here. Oh yeah A$AP brings out some guy named Drake after the break, you may or may not be interested in that.
Actually he says that the Superbowl is as American as it get’s but that doesn’t make for a great title now does it? Watch the above video with some slick animation and Bill’s usual clear headed voice on how the NFL more closely resembles Socialism than you would think.
