VIDEO: “One of a Kind” – Kublakai

Some Friday class for that ass courtesy Kub-“I’m Huge In Japan”-lakai. The Seattle market is currently saturated with music video directors and Mike Folden is not one of the sh-tty ones. He flips the B&W switch here for some casual cool. Get Kublakai’s The Basics 2, here.

VIDEO: “Back to the Future” – OL’ Small

If P Smoov were standing right next to OL’ Small would you be able to tell the difference? Certainly not in a hazy, strobe-lit club, the locale that Small’s music is specifically designed for. This earnest young rapper with booze, beats and babes (sorry, I couldn’t avoid the alliterative opportunity) on his mind just dropped a new single, “Back to the Future.” The track does, in fact, feature production by P Smoov, and the accompanying video is directed by Mike Folden. It’s all pretty kitschy and nostalgic to 80’s babies (of which I am one). I can’t say I didn’t find myself smiling at this.

VIDEO: “Greetings” (feat. Scribes) – Mike Folden

Seattle multimedia artist Mike Folden recently did a nice video profile on Scribes. I’ve never met dude, but he comes across as a thoughtful, intensely focused artist. Peep that above and download his latest full-length, What Was Lost, for free here. Scribes gets a great live look on June 10 when he opens for Pharoahe Monch at The Crocodile.
