Jel – “Breathe” video

From Jel‘s (@jelanticon) Late Pass album that released last year, watch his latest music video that dropped a couple of weeks ago (a little late, but who cares). Directed by Chloe Aftel & Jeremy Phillips, “Breathe” shows a group of animal-masked kids, with unusual weaponry such as a skateboard, a tennis racket, and a fistful of cards, as they roam the city at night causing ruckus. Brief cameo from Jel as he’s spinning flaming records. “Don’t get too comfortable.” repeats the dark, robotic vocal sample in this head-nodding, foot-tapping, dusty boom bap, hypnotic string groove.

Mio Soul – “Subliminal Melody”

What began as a personal beat-making challenge titled “Starbucks: Half in Half,”  Mio Soul soon realized she had accumulated a portfolio of hand-crafted beats worthy of a full-length production. Her upcoming album “Subliminal Melody” is the end result, an “atmospheric and ambient” channeling of the multi-faceted artist’s “inner cosmos,” the instrumental album is set for release March 18th via MANAFEST VISION Media LLC.

Mio states of the new album:

“Music production opened another door for me to creatively express myself more and more.  The sounds reflect a sample of my inner vibrations that I couldn’t easily express with words prior to actually producing music.  What I created on this project is literally related to my deep thoughts. My unconscious mind.”
