Video: araabMUZIK – ‘Beats Per Minute’ [Flud Watches]


A little while back, we gave away Flud’s BPM Watch and shared a feature video with DJ Numark, which was one of many promoting the launch of the fantastic watch. Other producers featured in the series included DJ Spinna, Lord Finesse, DJ Babu, and Exile, amongst others.

The final video dropped a few days ago and one might call it crack of sorts. If anyone is familiar with araabMUZIK, you know that this dude murders ish. Like, absolutely rips it. No joke. We saw him at SXSW last year and were frozen into a daze of awesome bliss. Take a look.

Video: DJ Shadow – “Border Crossing” + New Release


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

When we look at DJ Shadow’s new video for “Border Crossing,” we feel like we might have teleported into a psychedelic version of M.A.S.H. The video and track release at an interesting political time for the United States, with an urgent, throbbing focus on immigration.

For those still not up on game, DJ Shadow also released his most recent album a few days ago, The Less You Know, The Better. The album spans an array of moods and genres it seems, including appearances from Tom Vek, Little Dragon, Talib Kweli & Posdnuos.

Video: Alecia Chakour + The Osrah @ Littlefield, NYC

We adore Alecia. Last week, Alecia Chakour & The Osrah opened for ERIMAJ at Littlefield in Brooklyn and pretty much took the house down. The above video is their performance of “Ghost” – jazzy soul perfection.

Alecia has some seriously killing vocals, y’all – look out for this lady.

Below, stream the group’s EP that dropped late last year in case you missed it.
