The Cranberry Show released their eagerly awaited “Cinema” video today. I just got the chance to check it out now, because I was busy working on a video of my own. It’s really awesome to see when people take time with their videos, creating a great end product. This is just another example of the great end product that comes from avoiding a cookie cutter video formula. Check this out:
If you don’t already know, I’m working on developing a television show about Milwaukee’s music scene. You can follow our haphazard antics/developments on Twitter here. The reason that we’re doing this is because too many amazing local artists are being slept on. Artists like Frankie Flowers are the reason I’m working on this show. This EP is more than solid, and I really hope that people catch this one from him. His last album had some success with “The Coolness”, which featured a super catchy beat from Klassik. This EP is a step in a different direction for Frankie, but my goodness does he bring it on this thing. Please go download “The Local Nobodies EP”:
So… I really don’t need to post this. The Cranberry Show doesn’t need my help spreading this track around. This album was released today on DonutsAndMilk.com and DJBooth.net, which are both substantially bigger blogs than mine. But I just want you to hear this album. If you don’t download or listen to anything else that I write about, at least give The Cranberry Show a shot. And I’m not just saying that cause I produce for them once in a while. This is a solid album front to back. Click on the major hip-hop blog logo of your choosing to download the album. They’ll also be at The Rave tomorrow night, co-headlining an album release show with Mike Stud. I’ll be in the building. You should be too.
If you’ve ever seen Klassik live, you’ve probably heard this song. You’ve also probably seen all of SAFS Crew go nuts as soon as it comes on, and for good reason. Klassik is incredibly talented, that’s for damn sure. Look out for big things from Klassik in the near future, but first, listen to “MoonRock” here and download it from his Bandcamp:
If you ask me who some of my favorite producers are, I will not hesitate to include Klassik’s name. He has a very smooth style with every thing he puts out with other artists, and his own music reflects that same style as well. He’s currently working on an LP, but he just released this video, directed by ¡OYE!, entitled “GoodMusic”. This track is also available as a free download on Klassik’s SoundCloud Page as well.
So, it’s been a couple weeks, but I finally put together the video that I shot from the Mifflin Street Block Party this year. The video was really just to test out my new editing software, but I uploaded it to Youtube. Why not, right? Especially since there is a movement to shut the annual party down before next year’s event, due to some unfortunate violence by a select few of the thousands that attended this year. With that said, I urge everyone to go support the Save Mifflin cause on Facebook. Take a look at the party you’ll be saving. The video contains music from ¡Oye! and Klassik, The Cranberry Show, F. Stokes, and SAFS Crew representatives Dukalion, RTystic, and Seismic.
This is by far my favorite track off of Klassik’s Death of a Beatmaker EP. You can download this song for free by clicking here, which I advise everybody to do. Here’s the official video:
Congratulations, fellow Packer fans! WHOOOOOOO!!!!! Okay, that was slightly unnecessary. Anyway. During the game, SAFS Crew members Klassik, Seismic, and Rtystic dropped a new EP for free download entitled “The Halftime Show”. It’s a free download, so you have no reason not to get it. Oh, and Klassik is a better producer than you.
