[VIDEO] Sheisty Khrist & Lofidel - “Havana Nights (feat. Natti of CunninLynguists)” - Directed By Landon Antonetti

Posted 3 weeks, 4 days, 18 hours, 21 minutes ago

Even though it’s May, Sheisty Khrist & Lofidel’s Cold Winter continues to march on with this gorgeous new video for the album cut, “Havana Nights”. Directed by Landon Antonetti, the clip is as dark, humid and moody as the song title suggests. Natti (of CunninLynguists) swings through to provide another insightful verse over Lofidel’s broken-neon head-nodder. Sheisty was kind enough to provide us with some words as well:

“There are beats; there are rhymes; there are songs; and then there are organisms. Havana Nights is an organism. There is nothing contrived about it. It clings to you like sweat. No matter how many times you try to wipe it away you can’t rid yourself of it. Not everyone can survive the heat.”

[EXCLUSIVE] Sheisty Khrist & LoFidel - Cold Winter - Full LP Remix by Dr. Dundiff

Posted 1 month, 2 weeks, 2 days, 4 hours, 18 minutes ago

Holy shit! So, it’s Record Store Day and this dude Dr. Dundiff remixed Sheisty Khrist & LoFidel’s COLD WINTER album IN ITS ENTIRETY. Like, what the fuck?! This is awesome. Director Landon Antonetti put together a video to show you the man at work and share some of his process and motivations behind the remixes. Talk about exclusives. Phew! Below we have a note from Sheisty himself about the release.

“Historically Record Store Day releases have produced albums by mega acts and even lesser known independent music acts. What is missing from these releases are what one might call Uber-Underground acts. Record Store Day is just as meaningful for underground acts as it is for major acts. Lofidel and I decided long ago that wanted to add our own contribution to Record Store Day. We partnered with a fellow Kentucky producer Dr. Dundiff to remix our COLD WINTER album in its entirety.

The idea was to take an album that people already relate to and allow them to hear the album in new ways. We accomplished this. To sweeten the deal we even put together a cassette with a ‘lost” album on it for all the analog heads. That cassette and another special bundles will be available for our fans exclusively on our Bandcamp page. We hope that people support our endeavor and that other Uber-Underground acts such as ourselves follow our lead”

Posted 2 months, 2 weeks, 2 days, 23 hours, 44 minutes ago

The Past… is the first of three EPs leading up to the fourth studio album from prolific, Indie MC, Substantial. This time around the veteran wordsmith has partnered with HiPNOTT Records producer duo and fellow Maryland natives, The Other Guys for his latest release. Substantial’s musical past, pre-Hyde Out Productions, included many collaborations with Isaiah of TOG, which makes their project’s title quite fitting. The Past… features Von Pea of Tanya Morgan, Substantial’s protegé, See King, cuts from DJ Jav and plenty of that soulful boom bap The Other Guys have been known to provide. Lyrically, Substantial is as sharp as ever and covers subjects such as the dying art of MCing, dreams limited by stereotypes, and the exploitation of his former producer, Nujabes. Substantial’s full length album The Past Is Always Present In The Future drops fourth quarter 2015. Until then, enjoy this appetizer and look forward to more flavorful Hip Hop music to feed your soul.

Staying true to The Past… theme, those who purchase the album on Bandcamp will receive a bonus download of Substantial’s 1999 demo tape entitled Before Sunrise: Pre-Hyde Out Demo ’99. This 5 song bonus track includes songs recorded which would give Substantial the opportunity to work with legendary producer Nujabes. Substantial provides commentary on each track as well.

[VIDEO] Kokayi - “Part Of It” (Official Music Video)

Posted 3 months, 11 hours, 22 minutes ago

Boom! Kokayi brings us the official visual for his infectious single, “Part of It”. An ode to humanity and all of its shortcomings. Co-produced by Arsonal (Wyclef, Akon, Wale), the anthemic song utilizes sparse drums, steady bass and lush keys reminiscent of the 70’s all while staying current. The chorus reminds us that the onus of responsibility is on us “because we’re all a part of it stones and all, the boughs are broken watch them fall and the streets is watching is the alter call”. The video, shot and edited by Magee (Nomadic Wax), features lush tones as it juxtaposes nature against the imagery presented in the lyrics.
