  • Oddisee – “Belong To The World” (Video) | @Oddisee

    Check the new video to one my favorite cuts from Oddisee‘s previous The Good Fight, titled “Belong To The World”.  Aside from the new video, you can check out the upcoming world tour dates below. Video credits below as well.

    Directed by Zachary Kashkett
    Executive Producer: Michael Tolle
    Producer: Ryan Khoury
    Director of Photography: Cory C. Warner

    Director Zack Kashkett worked to provide a sense of isolation and introspection that often accompanies the physical and metaphorical idea of being inside and alone juxtaposed against spacious shots of Oddisee within the larger world outside. The sense of isolation goes away when the scope gets large enough and the world’s size becomes encompassing not enclosing. This is similar to the sense one gets when they realize they are part of something greater.

  • DJ MetroGnome’s “Take That Tuesdays” 9-Year Anniversary Party (3/31/14) | @djmetrognome

    DJ MetroGnome will be celebrating 9-years of playing the hip hop and music that he wants at Coaches, in downtown Indianapolis, tomorrow. Along side host J. Moore, the two have created a staple of sorts for hip hop in Indianapolis, as it’s not only a party to hear the music we love, but it also opens the doors for other DJ’s to come in and play along side him. From all over place too, not just Indiana.

    Take That Tuesdays is a place where I have personally met, mingled, and caught up with many people I now call friends, and I know it’s the same for many others. Being said, if you’re in the Indianapolis area tomorrow, this is where you’ll want to be. Come out and celebrate great music!

    The legendary DJ Needles, from St. Louis, will be joining him on the decks for the evening.
