Night Vibes :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Releases New Mi

a2104594695_10

I’ve been bad about putting out mixtapes lately, despite the countless number of live DJ sets I do these days.  You’d think that, with a steady diet of influence and practice at these sets, in combination with homeboys like poolboi blu steadily releasing solid mixes, that I’d be better about it, but like most of my art, I strike when the spirit moves me to.  After inspiration from the aforementioned poolboi blu release of his latest sincere mix, plus some talk with a friend about the latest Solange album, a list of songs jumped to mind that I felt would fit well together.  Sometime shortly before dawn, the mix was completed, the album cover was created, and the entire thing found its way to Bandcamp for all of you to enjoy, so please do so!  Share it with a friend too!

Scenic Route :: Mirage The Gr8 Drops Video For ‘Rollin’

Mirage the GR8 has been focused on dropping groups of videos for his musical releases over the last couple of years, and with each coordinated effort, the quality of the work seems to grow.  With RollinMirage reached out to some of his Dallas people to help capture images, and he reached out to yours truly for the edit.  The result, in my opinion, is quite impressive, and the type of quality that all involved can stand behind and be proud of.  Check it out for yourself, leave a like and a comment if you dig it, and share it with others so every can be blessed by the dopeness.

Screen Gem :: ‘I AM TX’ Prepares To Make Waves

I am so happy to announce that I AM TX is wrapped and ready to make a festival run.  Ryan Darbonne worked hard to bring his vision to life, and with a strong crew to back him, Audrey CampbellJonathan K. Horstmann and myself came with our A-games.  As a result, we are getting festival placements, and hopefully, we can make bigger and better opportunities happen!  The premier of the film will be at The Method Fest in Los Angeles, with screenings to follow at several more festivals (which will be announced over the upcoming weeks/months).  If you’re not following I AM TX on Facebook, be sure to do so as soon as possible, and keep yourself in the loop!

After a successful start to the year, The Vapor Caves decided to have a little fun by making the stems for their single The Chase public and available for producers to remix.  Several notable talents stepped up to the challenge, and The Vapor Caves have set about making a playlist to collect them all like Pokemon.  So far, Butcher BearDJ LADDDADJ Boozwa and the Nodes of ThoughtMadd WikkidMulti-Tracker and even myself have gotten in on the act, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more on the list by the time this post goes public.  I’ll definitely be following this playlist, and I even have a few producers in mind that I think could make dope remixes, so you should probably stay tuned as well.

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.

My man SniperShot can always be counted on for positive vibes, enriching lyrics, dope video ideas, and doper execution.  His latest magnum opus comes in the form of We Are One, an affirmation that, no matter what you’re going through or experiencing, you are not doing it alone in the greater scope of things.  The idea is transmitted via a clever visual editing trick that works extremely well.  Definitely check this one out, share it around, and like/comment it up!
