After dropping his incredibly cohesive, Floating While Dreaming album earlier this year, Pell added on some visuals for the somber single, “Runaway”. The video, albeit simple, adds a level to Pell’s already vivid storyline. The blues and blacks of the video compliment Pell’s melodic voice, and take you through his turmoil-filled love life.
Things are just starting to hear up for this young emcee, so be on the lookout for more music and videos, very soon.

A few months back we presented to you the chilling ballad by San Williams titled, “Really Good To Me”. Contradictory to its title, the song, and now accompanying video, depict the troublesome relationship between two teenagers looking for love. Quoting our good blog friends at Potholes, San “walks through watery wastelands and dreamy destinations” while “fluctuating [his voice] with a certain resonance, as if balancing passion and reservation, while a luscious landscape progresses forward beneath the surface.”
The video adds a whole extra layer of depth to the already emotional song. Director Tyler Mitchell uses the instrumentation to his advantage and cuts frame after frame of beautiful imagery, bringing you in to San’s shoes.
San has been religiously recording material for his new project, and it’s only a matter of time before he takes the world by storm.

For those of you who aren’t too familiar with Gramatik, this is probably the funnest beat he had on his release of SB4, which was a lil teaser before TAOR, called “Monster Stomp“. To make it even more an a banger, ProbCause hopped on it for fun and together the collaboration makes for a progressive hip hop song. I’d like to see more collab’s from them in the future, agreed?

Off of his album Abstracts & Fragments from Ryse Records, Dorian Grey absolutely smashes this beat. The lyricism and melody are too perfect with the never ending flute that carries you through the whole song. Though Tucson, AZ may be scorching this time of year, Grey is only adding to it. Keep it up.
