Video: Sole Vibe – “Self Centered”/”Ring To It”

I’m just posting away over here.  I’m trying to get caught up on some blogging.  I have been REALLY busy lately.  But no fear, as you can see, we’re back in full effect.

So anyway, the Sole Vibe guys sent over this double video for “Self Centered” and Mario Dones’ “Ring To It.”  I love how Sole Vibe puts and emphasis on quality with everything they do.  That’s how I approach things that we do with Under Sound so I can definitely respect it.  This video is no different.  My only qualm with it, is I think they should have better delineated between the two parts of the video.  “Self Centered” is a very different song from “Ring To It” and I’d have liked to see more contrast in the visuals to match the contrast in sounds.  That doesn’t change however that the video is artfully done and has some nice shots and camera movement.  I like what they’re doing over and there.  What do you think?

New Music: The Sole Vibe – “One To Grow On”

I’m officially a fan of the dude Mario Dones.  I’m sure you remember a few other posts about him and the Sole Vibe label that he’s on.  They sent over this whole album that’s up on Bandcamp right now and it’s as solid as I’d expect.  It’s tracks from Mario and label mate AV and from front to back it rarely slips.  Definitely check this out and if you’re feeling what you’re hearing support their movement.

New Music: Mario Dones – “Pastries”

Logged into our email account this morning to find this little gem waiting for me. We’ve posted some music from Mario Dones before so you might remember him.  He’s got a great voice for rapping and gets some dope production.  This joint is off of his upcoming one To Grow On project dropping mid-August on Solevibe.  Once again he picks a pretty dope beat, this time produced by Nice Rec.  I really like how during the hook it gets real almost big band jazzy.  It’s smoothed out without putting you to sleep.
