Kublakai gets medieval in the country on your ass in his new video for “Moan,” a single off the rapper’s recent Wheels Up EP, which you can read more about here. Mike Folden behind the lens.
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.
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.
