[VIDEO] Fjer - “Children” (Music Video) - Directed By: TATA

Posted 2 weeks, 2 days, 12 hours, 14 minutes ago


Fjer“Children” (Music Video) – Directed by TaTa | DOWNLOAD: [MP3]

Danish Singer/Songwriter/Producer Fjer returns with “Children” – the first single & video from her forthcoming concept EP, Beautiful Home which you can pre-order right now via Bandcamp.

The TaTa directed music video is filtered through VHS playback heads to achieve the feel of fluorescent memories over the song’s wilting piano riff and wistful vocals. Dark, pensive and moody with a decidedly late-80’s Hip Hop vibe (complete with the dexterous scratches by Rocksteady Crew’s DJ JS-1), “Children” instantly transports us back to the naivete of youth.

After seeing this, we’re very excited for the release of Beautiful Home and we hope you are too. Please be sure to share this video and spread the word. For more on Fjer, check the links below and stay tuned for more from our sister-label, QUINTIC.

[AUDIO] Kokayi - “Poseidon” - DAY 192

Posted 2 weeks, 4 days, 23 hours, 19 minutes ago by Tonedeff


After 192 straight days of musical output, Kokayi continues the quest to release A TRACK A DAY FOR THE ENTIRETY OF 2014. Today, DC’s eclectic-guru brings us mental health themed strider, “Poseidon” to play lifeguard to those of us having a hard time keeping our heads above water in times of stress.

“Poseidon” was inspired by recent real-life struggles. “I felt like things have been getting a little hectic for myself and my folks, and we need a life preserver. We need a safety net, someone to fish us out of the waters that are stifling our ability to breathe. Sometimes things get too deep, but we don’t realize it’s just a shallow pool.”
- Kokayi

ALL IN A MONTH’S WORK: JUNE

The month of independence marches on and there’s no shortage of awesomess – peep the quasi dub-soca of “TheLickZumba”, the lounge-lizard piano tickled push of “TresThree” and the aggressively unending build of “RVA”. Be sure to follow along via the links below as Koke closes out the year with more daring production and exclusive songs.

[TEASER] Fjer - “Children” - 7.14.14

Posted 3 weeks, 1 day, 20 hours, 45 minutes ago

On July 14, 2014, Danish Singer/Songwriter/Producer Fjer will release “Children” – the first single & video from her forthcoming conceptual EP, Beautiful Home.

After a promising debut with 2013’s A New Start, Beautiful Home is a full-blown expansion of her sound and a testament to her flexibility as an artist. The teaser, comprised of clips pulled from the TaTa directed music video, hearkens back to a time of VHS playback heads and fluorescent memories over the song’s wilting piano riff. We’re excited and we hope you are too.

[NEWS] CunninLynguists Ranked Top 3 Vocabulary In Hip Hop

Posted 2 months, 3 weeks, 1 day, 7 hours, 56 minutes ago

Recently, New York-based designer, coder and data scientist Matt Daniels took up the challenge of figuring out who had the best vocabulary in Hip Hop – pulling out the number of unique words from the first 35,000 lyrics of 85 artists. Low and behold, QN5’s own CunninLynguists landed at #3 on the list! Which is basically around the level of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick! Yet, another dagger in the skulls of those who continue to sleep on Deacon, Natti & Kno’s stellar lyricism. Smile

“Moving past Wu-Tang’s dominance, the next three artists are relatively not as well-known. Of the three, Kool Keith has the most diverse vocabulary. For a taste of his work, check out his album with the largest vocab: Dr. Octagonecologyst. #2 and #3 are two relatively underground (yet accomplished) acts: Jamaican-born rapper Canibus and southern-based group CunninLyguists.”
