Silent Wars :: Hyder Makes Moving Video For ‘Farewell’

Austin-based hip-hop artist Hyder is clearly here to raise the bar of what both an artist and an artistic statement can be.  The former poet turned MC is obviously comfortable taking on topics with weight, as he exhibits in Farewell by effortlessly espousing on the trials and tribulations we face from within and without as we attempt to navigate an often stressful and trying world.  The raw honesty captured in both the song and the video are moving, and the high quality of the video heightens the entire experience.  Definitely check this one out, like and comment on it, and share it around.

Headline News :: John Valley Premiers First Trailer For ‘Duncan’

2019 promises to be an exciting year for many creatives, myself included.  Exhibit A : John Valley and his debut feature film, Duncan.  After a successful crowdfunding campaign via Seed&SparkValley and crew shot the film, and going into festival season, it appears we may have something in the works that could potentially make some noise.  Working on this project was a blast, and I’m honored to be a part of it in any capacity.  Stay tuned to Duncan on your favorite form of social media, and be there when this one hits, because it feels like it’s going to hit big.

Reality Reflected :: Wallaby And Bobbes Drop ‘Day In The Life’ Video

Muggzy Flowz and Dr. Bobby BannerM.P.C., the duo more formerly known as Wallaby and Bobbes, seems to have two things on their mind when they release work : class and classics.  As for class, their presentation has always been consistently professional, with a down to earth aesthetic that makes connecting with their soulful music and thought-provoking lyrics that much easier.  Visually, the crew always makes clips that you could place in the canon of class and current hip-hop videos, and the work will be quality enough to fit right in.  Day in the Life finds the crew performing soundstage style this time, drowned in a white abyss as the camera floats around them like a spirit.  Add the dissolves and fades that tie together visually like a dream, and you’ve got a hypnotic and mesmerizing video that will certainly rack up views.  Definitely spread this one around.

Dropping Science :: Protextor And MoneyNetwork Talk Over ‘Aladdin’ On ‘Rappers Playing Games (RPG)’

Baby Lion is doing it so well that they get to bookend the weekend!  Protextor has decided to hit us with back to back episodes of Rappers Playing Games (RPG) within a week, and the latest episode features special guest MoneyNetwork and the Sega Genesis classic Aladdin.  The pair play the surprisingly difficult game and talk about diversification of creative ventures, the information age, making blogs, objective knowledge and much more in one of the most interesting and vivid conversations to take place on the show to date.  This series is catching steam, and with as many talented artists as there are in the Austin area (many of whom I can almost guarantee are gamers), I imagine we will have plenty of episodes to look forward to.  Give this one a like, leave a comment, and share it around so others can do the same!

Moving Pictures :: Tåsi Releases Music Video For ‘Reflect’

I recently stumbled across the music video for Reflect, the latest single by Tåsi, and was struck by the artistic quality of the images, and how perfectly they matched the well crafted song by Tåsi and his producer Malekhino.  The entire affair has a cinematic quality to it, like a Bergman or Altman film with a camera that resembles a spirit moving.  The feel matches what Tåsi speaks about in terms of introspection, taking personal inventory, and as the title states, reflection on your journey.  Definitely a gem worth spreading around… and be sure to leave a like and a comment when you do share it.
