At.Long.Last.A$AP doesn’t come out until June but A$AP Rocky has released another video. Directed by Dexter Navy (with A$AP Rocky getting a co-direction credit), the video complements “LSD”‘s smooth beat with lots of psychedelic transitions. Watch the video below.
Enjoyed this profile on New York’s next generation of hip hop artists. Action Bronson, The Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, and openly gay rapper Le1f are interviewed in this short, beautifully shot and directed by Robert Lopuski. Watch the film “We’re Gonna Be Lords” below.
A Tribe Called Quest re-worked by KeysnKrates! Enjoy some rehearsal footage of the guys getting ready for their upcoming show this Friday at Wrongbar in Toronto! Don’t miss ’em!
(For the record, there were 2 views on this video when I posted it!)
Some music for your weekend! Keys N Krates, if you don’t already know you better get familiar! Picture The Roots, but Black Thought has been replaced by an ITF world champion DJ. Here they are absolutely killing Toronto earlier this year.
Jr Flo (the krates) and Matisse (the keys) are rockin parties the way they were meant to be rocked! Remixes with live drums, bass, and keys! It doesn’t get any better than this. They blew several thousand minds at the Livestock BBQ here in Vancouver in September.
You may recall I posted about Oscar & Ewan and their fantastic lasertype awhile back – well, Ewan just hit me up with a look at their latest work, the cover for the new Roots Manuva album, “Slime and Reason”. It is stunning.
I asked about the process and Ewan explained they actually had Roots Manuva 3D scanned (from every 45 degree angle) and then manipulated the 3D image to set the bowl in. Then they took their prototype to a sculptor and had a cast made. Finally they created some slime out of hand soap, filled the bowl, and Pelle Crépin snapped some photos. Boom, done.
If you aren’t familiar with Roots Manuva, it’s time you got familar! Here’s one of my favourite tracks off an older album:
Apparently we killed the hotlink file – (here’s the Zshare link!)
