This year we shot a load of video footage, but due to some circumstances we never got around to editing it and bringing it to ya’ll. Since it’s almost Christmas and the year has almost ended, we had to go out with some gifts in the form of some video’s. We shot an epic video last summer starring Exile & DJ Day which never saw the lights of day. It was shot at the Rooms of Red Bull where we hosted the Beat Battle at the Rooms of Red Bull together with Nalden. The only reason why this video never got properly uploaded, was because Vimeo decided to upload the footage, but kept on messing up the aspect ratio in the progress. We tried everything and eventually gave up all hope. Luckily my buddy Joao Costa (who shot and edited all the footage) came with a solution and managed to properly upload it to Vimeo at last. Thanks to Alex, Damien, Jonathan and Olski for meeting up with us. It was a pleasure and we had fun talkin’ bout the funky worm.
This just got in from my man Crate. Just got off the phone and he has a pneumonia as well. Stupid H1N1 got us all. Anyway…in case you hadn’t seen yet. Full Crate & Mar are dropping their “Conversations With Her” EP on Melting Pot Music. Watch for the digital to drop Januari 8th and the vinyl will drop the 15th. Pre-order HERE! You might have also recognized the gorgeous Brazilian girl from the “She Was Fly” video. I’m loving that sexy ass promo…muito bom!
A few weeks ago we met up with Ty and Erik Rico, who performed at ‘Straight Up Jazz’ @ the Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. In this in-depth interview, Ty talks about the hip hop in UK, sheds some light on his upcoming album “A Special Kind of Fool” and tells us how he never wanted UK rappers to ask him for beats. You’d better get you cup of tea, because this is a serious fifteen minute video. Again Joao Costa on camera and edit. He worked a small miracle, because the lighting was awfull at the venue where we shot this. Photo credit goes to PMI.
Deluge and me got to hear some bits of the upcoming Ty album and it honestly sounded very dope. We hope to tickle your ears soon with some exclusive streams, but more of that later! Big up to Raj for connection and we’ll holla when we’re in London in a few months.
We met with miss Muhsinah earlier this year in Rotterdam and shot some footage at her hotel. When we picked her up from the airport I asked her about her “The Oscillations: Triangle” album. We decided to get the forgotten footage out and piece together a short video especially for our Moovmnt visitors. Hope ya’ll like it and appreciate the effort we put into this.
Camera and editing by Joao Costa, to whom goes massive respect! We recently got together with Ty in Amsterdam and shot a very interesting interview. If everything goes according to plan this video will be online before the holidays. Shout out to RBMA for picking this up!
There has been heavily blogged about “The Oscillations: Triangle” on all the blogs lately, but we did not want to withhold one of the best songs from the album from you.
Gregthedude just hit us up via mail to share this brand new Shafiq Husayn “lil Girl” video he directed. It’s his debut and I have to say it’s pretty damn dope! It features artists like Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, Thundercat, and Wood Harris. If you haven’t bought his “Shafiq Husayn “Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka” album, I advise you wake the f*ck up and buy it NOW! Thnx for this one Greg..
