On these icy winter mornings make sure your ear’s are covered with some some quality phones, pen-in-hand and beats so hot they may just be the cause of global warming altogether!! All jokes aside… The power-house producer form Poland “Emapea” delivers nothing but the most severe quality production time and time again and his latest offering, “Zoning Out Volume 2” is without a doubt one of my favourite instrumental albums to release this year.

I also happened to come across this music video for his track “Funk it Up lifted” from his Zoning Out Vol.1 Album… peep it here:
Munich producer VersOne just dropped one serious beat tape aimed right at the freestyle’s and sketch artists like myself who just wanna slap on some banging beats and be wholeheartedly inspired with what creeps up out of the woodwork as a result… Admittedly, I’ve kinda got lost in the all to many epic instrumental / …

Animate ya MindZ… “Savior Self” – New Video from ThiNXx!
Hot off the fresh and kicking off “ThiNXx” for 2019… “Savior Self” is the all new music video offering from the South African Indie hiphop artist ThiNXx!!
“This is an animated video put together by Double Xx Design to help convey the message of the track. It focusses around two characters putting up pasties(posters stuck up with glue) everywhere they can find offering people advise on how to live their lives… or not! It’s basically a bit of fun to affirm the tried and tested message of… “Savior Self”(Save Yourself)”. ~ThiNXx
Too Good to Look Away – YUGEN BLAKROK is “Gorgon Madonna” in her stunning new music video lifted from the intro track of the South African artists revolutionary sophomore album ‘ANIMA MYSTERIUM’ out now on Iapetus Records(South Africa) and I.O.T. Records(France)!!
The Eye-catching, awakening visuals are like a breath of fresh air, taking in the essence of the track and throwing it back at you in live full HD colours that just hold your eyes captive right to the end. It’s a journey into the nether-realm that is the minds of both Yugen and Kanif’s forever flowing fluid soundscapes. Ironically, you can’t look away due to it’s sheer beauty even though the “”gorgon” title specifically states otherwise!
Check it out here:
‘GORGON MADONNA’ taken from the album ‘ANIMA MYSTERIUM (Released on 1. February 2019)
“In old Mythology, Medusa (The Gorgon) is cursed by Zeus and is made a monster than Man must fear. No one can look into her eyes as they’ll be turned to stone. The Virgin Mary (The Black Madonna) in religion, as much as she’s the vessel that carries the Christ into the world, is somehow excluded from the Holy Trinity. It is out of this vilification and exclusion of the female element that these two entities meet. Both inspire fear in Man. The Gorgon Madonna is the wrath of Medusa and Mary. The Divine Feminine in the guise of the ultimate warrior: the woman scorned.” ~ Yugen Blakrok
“For this music video I focused on animating the artist’s metaphors without illustrating them in a strictly literal way. From her prose I let emerge a collection of hybrid and extraordinary characters. These characters commune to represent a form of transversality. Transversality of time (youth-old age), of matter (organic-electric), of genre (masculine-feminine) and of species (animal-human)…” ~ Yann Marquis (Director)
