Video: Donwill - "Can't Shake It Easy"


From Audible Treats:

Video: Donwill - "Can't Shake It Easy"

Donwill - Shake It Easy from 5846 Films.

The timeless phrase "breaking up is hard to do" is the basis for Donwill's newest video for his song, "Can't Shake It Easy." The fourth visual to come from the Cincinnati-born, Brooklyn-based MC from Tanya Morgan stays true to the concept of his debut solo album, Don Cusack In High Fidelity, which is Donwill's musical interpretation of the cult classic film, High Fidelity. "The album is based on being in a state of perpetual pre-mid-life crisis," says Donwill. "Nothing in life will give you all the answers, but this album will help people find some of the answers they might be looking for."

Donwill explores the personal turmoil and regret of breaking up with his video for "Can't Shake It Easy." Following the release of his optimistic video for "Breathe," he enlisted the talents of Queens-based 5846 Productions to capture what a lonely guy does after leaving his girl. With the chorus questioning "Tell me what I need to take/ Cause maybe I need a drink, or two," Donwill is seen tossing back shots and gulping down Buds to try and numb the pain. But as he realizes in the video, sometimes burning all the depressing memories in an alley way is the only way to cope.

MP3: Kokayi - Chanticleer (Moombahton Remix) Prod. By Cam Jus


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Kokayi - Chanticleer (Moombahton Remix) Prod. By Cam Jus

Burgeoning D.C. Genre Combines Dub-Step, Reggaeton, And More

The Song:

Only a year ago in Washington D.C. DJ Dave Nada slowed down the track "Moombah" by DJ Chuckie & Silva Cuomo to 108 beats per minute. This alteration began to "sound like Reggaeton's weird little cousin," says fellow genre pioneer Cam Jus. Nada slammed the two words, Moombah and Reggaeton, together and a new genre was born. Moombahton, says track producer Cam Jus, is "mid-tempo global bass music for the universe. It's a sonic marriage of electronic dance music (House, Techno, and dubstep) with Latin/Island music." The Cam Just remix for Kokayi's "Chanticleer," one of the most lauded singles from his recent album, Robots & Dinosaurs, incorporates all the elements mentioned. The opening synth part even features 8-bit sounds while the reversed keyboard sets the tone for the remixed track. For Kokayi, a DC native himself who actually first heard about the genre last year while at a hotel in France, branching out into new and innovative genres is key. "Innovation, being the key tenet of hip-hop music, has always inspired," explains Kokayi, "which results in me trying to incorporate new sounds and styles it into what I do, filtered through my own circumstances."
