If you’ve had the pleasure of seeing F. Stokes live (as I have, that’s me behind some guy’s camo hat), you’ve probably heard this song, and sang along with it. If not, allow me to introduce you to F. Stokes. The Madison MC loves his hometown, and you can experience that love in this song. Ironically, the video is anything but simple. Hats off to Maria Juranic and her crew. This video looks flat out great. Watch:
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:
Here’s a song leak from Madtown’s 2win’s album “When The Streets Take Over”, which I produced. If you want to get the whole album, it should be available online shortly. Or, if you’re in Madison, it’s available at the following locations:
The Exclusive Company – 508 State St. (608) 255-2433
B-Side Records & Tapes – 436 State St. (608) 255-1917
Ear Wax Records – 254 W. Gilman St. (608) 257-6402
Madtown Fried Chicken – 2336 S. Park St. (608) 294-8494
Mad City Music Exchange – 600 Williamson St. (608) 251-8558
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.
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:
At around the 25 second mark, you can see palm trees in the background of this clip from the O’Reilly Factor, while they discuss the protests in Madison. I don’t know if anyone told Fox News this, but… we don’t have palm trees here, unless these protests are taking place in the Mitchell Park domes as well, in which case I am ill-informed.
What we have here is the media trying to dramatically play up the story of the protests, using some B-Roll of other protests to create a story. It’s unacceptable, and someone may get fired over that mistake, especially if it goes viral. (20,000+ views already). If you’re gonna fill time, though, why not do it like this instead:
DISCLAIMER: If you’re like me, you’ve heard way too many opinions within the last week or so about Scott Walker, the Madison protests, Worker’s Rights, etc. and arguably from sources that probably aren’t incredibly… well, credible. (cough cough, Facebook, cough cough). Let me make it clear that I know where I stand on this issue, but due to the overexposure that I’ve had to this as a Wisconsinite, I do not wish to engage in a political argument with anyone. No offense to anyone or their opinions, I just do not want to deal with it. Quite frankly, I’m busy, and I don’t want to put in the effort.
With that said, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report made light of the protests in Madison and the Democratic senators who left Wisconsin to prolong a vote, and it makes you step back and laugh at this whole thing, for once. I saw both of these segments last night and loved it. Unfortunately, I can’t get them to embed properly here. Click the pictures to check out their corresponding segments:
