How many words can Tifa fit in two minutes, twenty-seven seconds? How many disses? How many times does she have to prove that she's dancehall's reigning queen?
From the album Formula Vol. 2. Directed by Joaquin Cambre.
Tigerstyle blends EDM and Bhangra in “Zulfaan De Naag” f/ Kaur-B. The Scottish-Punjabi duo brings the beats, Kaur-B bring the vocals, and a UK hip-hop dancer does her thing in the video.
Somali ex-pats Faarrow sound the alarm in their video for “Say My Name.” The video, shot in Kenya, show the ladies bouncing between two modes: sweet vocal harmonizing a la '90s R&B act Zhané and the bad-girl antics of M.I.A.
Irish band Kodaline had such an overwhelmingly positive response to the character they introduced in the video for “All I Want” that they decided to make a second chapter for the same song featuring a vignette about a man, a dog, and how a crisis can...
There are as many facets to Ester Rada’s music as there are dopplegangers in her video for “Life Happens.” The Israeli Ethio-soul artist joins Janelle Monae and Laura Mvula as singers we worship.
“Recollection” is come-hither electronica, reminiscent of Everything But The Girl and Saint Etienne. The Greek duo Keep Shelly in Athens update the sound with chill-wave’s froth and create a video about impermanence.
“Step up to the plate” is the message of the video for Ethiopian singer-songwriter Wayna’s song “I Don’t Wanna Wait.” An international squad of young women take on the world in the baseball themed narrative.
Is it a microbe? Or a monster? Watch a computer-generated organism grow to the beat in “Prisms.”
Laura Mvula is one of the most enchanting singers in the world. We’d happily spend time in the pastoral paradise she constructs in the video for “Green Garden.” The cream-colored fashions, the “cake-walk” dancing, and vocal syncopations make the...
New Jersey’s Static Jacks remind us of Blue Album-era Weezer, so it’s not surprising that their latest album is named In Blue. The band turns their ‘90s fantasies of having their very own Kelly Kapowski into a smoking hot reality with the video for...
Someone went H.A.M. with a bottle of white-out in the video for “Flying” by Wiley, the godfather of UK grime music. Meanwhile, Wiley goes H.A.M. over a grubby, dirty, dank beat.
Sleigh Bells are back with another girl-power jock jam in “Bitter Rivals.” We wouldn’t want to piss Alexis Krauss off if we ran into her walking through a dark alleyway.
