Video: Afta-1 – “HeyeLAND” ft. Nikko Gray

 

So, uh – guys. We’ve been super duper holding out on y’all. There’s this secret invite only party we’ve been going to for a few months in Jersey (yeah, Jersey) that is all kinds of amazing. Basically, a talented photographer/videographer by the name of Tone (that many New York heads may be familiar with) started a live music series at his loft featuring upcoming talent called Live At The Loft.

For those unable to snag an invite, we’re going to start sharing some of our favorite videos with you. You’ll definitely want to check out the Live At The Loft site for previous performances, which include Chico Mann, Muhsinah, Jesse Boykins III, Full Crate and Mar, Cubic Zirconia, Melo X, and Fresh Daily. Yep. Thank us later.

Without further ado, here’s one of our favorite recent performances featuring Los Angeles’ Afta-1. The gorgeous video perfectly captured the mellow mood and just dropped last night! This is taking us back and making us relive the sexiness in a whole new way. Very much awesome.

GPWW 4/27/11: The First ‘All Winners’ of 2011

This is a massive 60-track collection of the best Gilles Peterson approved music released so far in 2011 – from heavy modal jazz, to indie hip-hop, to the new wave of electronic production, on which we don’t want to slap a label yet. Only the best in this edition, as every ‘Worldwide Winners’ show goes. The first hour includes an Jamie XX Remix of Adele, FaltyDL, Addison Groove, Thom Yorke with Burial & Four Tet, Dimlite. Gilles gives the Best Album of the Year title to James Blake. Later he pulls out some more GPWW staples: Jamie Woon, The Stepkids, Prommer & Barck, Cubic Zirconia, and somehow he moves from Radiohead into Chris Brown. It’s another not-to-be-missed episode of the worldwide show, All Winners 2011 special.
