Next week, Fresh New Tracks will take on South By Southwest, the self-proclaimed “premier destination for all discovery” that sets the trends of music for the next year to come. SXSW is a film, music, and interactive festival that takes over the city of Austin for 10 outrageous straight days. The music festival is comprised of official and unofficial (usually free) shows, rooftop parties, party boats and buses and no to mention the most interesting collection of people you will ever see.
Allow us to give you a little taste of what went down last year…
Stayed tuned for Sev and Mimada’s Complete What-To-Do and How-To-Do-It guide after the break.

One of my person favorites off The King’s Dead debut project, “Jerusalem, is now here in visual form. Aziz and Alexander have always been involved the production of their visuals and now that they are represented by their independent film movement, Vérité Films, they played an even more instrumental role in the creation of “Mighty California”. Co-Directed/Produced by Elan Alexanberg of FTS Creative, The King’s Dead once again creates a spectacle of creativity.
“The “Mighty California” Video was inspired by Salvador Dali’s first movie “Un Chien”. The confusing non existent sense of time the film portrayed inspired Aziz Francois to create his own modern day version. A blend of Al Pacino’s “Scarface” and Dali’s “Un Chien” come together to create Mighty California. A Story about Aziz escaping two prostitutes who hold him hostage in a hotel, until he escapes

“Victim,” produced by J. Cardim, released just a week ago and finally the short film music video is. The track itself is Hip-hop with a little Dubstep flowing through the background, with the addition of samples from Katy Perry. Ariez takes this one to the chest, pumping out incredible verses that slightly alter your perception of Hip-hop’s future. The video is nothing short of a cinematic masterpiece. The true life gangster vibe from the video is cool to watch, as I’m sure it was to film.
“ The goal in mind for “Victim” was simply, to make a masterpiece. The One of One production team brought forth the treatment & I was sold. Coincidentally, I had a performance booked in Athens, Greece around the time. The final product took longer than expected, but exceeded our expectations none the less. I’m very proud to present this video to the public. It is only the beginning of what’s to come for Ariez Onasis. Until next time!”

Kenton Dunson just released his music video for “Firestarter”, one of my favorite songs off his Creative Destruction 2 album (available for free here) and I couldn’t imagine a better video for it. The video was directed by William J Bastian II who really did an incredible job with it. Better yet, in the next couple months there will be a short film titled Firestarter based on Kenton’s music. The music video contains scenes from the short film, so consider it a kind of preview of what’s to come!

Fresh off his trip to L.A. for the video shoot for “Firestarter,” Kenton Dunson put together a nice little video detailing his trip as well as giving us a sneak peak of his upcoming music video and short film based on his song “Firestarter.” The music video for “Firestarter” should be released in the next couple weeks with the short film debuting shortly after.
The background music to the video is his latest release “Top of the World,” which contains a smooth Passion Pit sample and has been blazing a trail on the internet lately. You can download “Top of the World” for free here. If you have yet to check out “Firestarter” you can listen and download the song below. The song will be the first visual off his critically acclaimed Creative Destruction 2 album available for free here.
