Cover, Pop, Videos | CJ Holland — Tuesday [Cover]

Posted by on March 1, 2015

CJ Holland, a 21-year-old with a voice like silk and a classy style, is a name to know if you pride yourself on staying ahead of the blog curve. He’s clearly developed himself in the vein of pop darlings like JT and Bruno, and has been working on his debut album with the likes of Pharrell, Ne-Yo, and even Quincy Jones.

Recently, he’s performed a series of covers (“Uptown Funk, “I’m Not the Only One,” and “Thinking Out Loud”) that have continued to impress and showcase his range. This week he’s added a bit more of an inventive touch to his cover of “Tuesday,” as producer One Love (of Kinetics & One Love fame, primarily) provides an immersive, trap-infused interpolation of the beat, and CJ rewrites the verses, making them successfully his own while still retaining the original’s staccato flow and melodic touch.

That changed yesterday as the LA transplants connected with up and coming director Elemen† and dropped visuals for their most recent single We Ain’t Never. Head over to their SoundCloud to grab the free download and be sure to stay up to date with Academy by giving them a follow on Twitter (@Academy401).

Progressive House, Videos | Pierce Fulton Performs ‘Kuaga’ Live

Posted by on February 2, 2015

If you follow Pierce on socials or watch his videos you would have seen him noodle around on his guitars, talkboxes or other devices. He has decided to show off some of those skills in a new video where he performs his latest single “Kuaga” live on various drum machines and the guitar, equipped with some lightsabers in the background and some dramatic slo-mo to make strumming the guitar just that much more epic. Watch it above.

Hip-Hop, Videos | OnCue Is The New Meme King of Hip-Hop With “No Way” Video

Posted by on January 29, 2015

A musicians presence behind a camera can often make or break their music.  Brooklyn based MC, OnCue, has always taken pride in crafting unique, original, authentic music videos to complement his everlasting sound.  From the stop-motion laced “Way Too Far” to Cuey Nuts and milk showers in “Cereal” to the hazy “New Religion” video featuring Just Blaze & cardboard Dorothy, OnCue always delivers something fresh and innovative.

In support of his debut album, Angry Young Man, Cuey released the official music video for his most recent single, “No Way” just yesterday.  In true Cuey form, him and director Hunter Lyon (side-note: follow this kid, he’s super talented with the camera) cook up a video like none of us have ever seen before.  Honestly, I’m still trying to my mind around the logistics that went into making this work.  Superimposing himself on some of the internet/Reddit’s hottest stories – Bieber getting his paparazzi rage on, Zombie turtle lover kid, the creeper who interrupted a live newscast – & several more, Cue shows us why he’s not gonna stop ’til he gets it.  Fortunately for us, someone over at Buzzfeed has already aggregated the memes used in this video into one post so you can relive them all over and over and over and over again.  Be sure to show love to Cuey & Hunter for this work of art!

One of America’s newest festivals, TomorrowWorld, brought the mystical experience from its Belgian counterpart, Tomorrowland, to Georgia, maintaining its elite reputation. Boasting a lineup with too many star DJ/producers to handle, the festival made sure that its 2nd edition would be one to remember to close out 2014. Skrillex’s OWSLA stage flew in names like Alvin Risk, Foreign Beggars, and Yogi to rock the festival grounds for a day of some quality dance music. Recently, OWSLA released a recap video of the stage and Skrillex’s main stage set. It’s safe to say that it made me want to book my tickets immediately. Between the magical atmosphere and madness directed by Skrillex’s family, the recap video shows off a simply good time.
