Song Of The Day: Throwback Thursday (4/17/14)

Song: Sounds Of The Street

Artist: Boom Bap Project

Album: Reprogram

You better believe that the Boom Bap Project lived up to their name. Their 2005 release "Reprogram" is one of tho albums that I hold near and dear to me because it was my first taste of NW hip hop back in the day. While it bums me out that they no longer make music together, I can always bump this. Purchase the album here

Ryan Caraveo, an up and coming artist reigning from Seattle, just released a video for the single "Wallowing". His album "Swings" is set to drop sometime this summer and by the looks and sounds of this, it’s very promising. 

Song Of The Day: Whatever Wednesday (4/16/17)

Song: 101 (prod. by DJ Phinisey) 

Artist: Rockwell Powers

Album: N/A

Back in October, Rockwell Powers and DJ Phinisey released their album, "Build". They’ve now dropped their newest track, "101", which may seem short, but definitely packs a punch. You can stream the track here.

Fearce Vill recently dropped a remix of "Let It Be" featuring Grieves and Grynch, along with a video to accompany it. Gotta say, both are pretty dope. 

Song Of The Day: Taco Tuesday (4/15/14)

Song: My City’s Filthy ft. Grynch & Fearce Vill

Artist: Wizdom

Album: N/A

I’m sensing a new anthem here, y’all. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the sentiment “My city’s filthy” (thanks Macklemore) in terms to Seattle, and Wizdom brings that to you in full force. Peep Grynch and Fearce Vill on the track. You can cop the track here.

Song Of The Day: New Music Monday (4/14/14)

Song: Ordering A Pizza

Artist: Don’t Talk To The Cops!

Album: N/A

If you haven’t heard, the one and only Piecoras Pizza is closing up shop tomorrow. We’re so bummed to hear of it’s closing, as well as plenty of others who heard the news. DtttC! dropped this track about ordering a pizza and damn right you know it’s fitting. You can download the track here.


MITS feat. La & Kixxie Siete (Official Video)

The Bar is for raising the minimum wage. 

Cool things to note about this video:
- it was shot in one take
- Prometheus Brown, Bambu and DJ Nphared had just gotten back from a 24-hour trip to Manila
- Prometheus Brown was in the middle of preparing the kitchen for the pop-up restaurant (which is why he dashes off right after his verse)
- The woman in the beginning of the video is not Nphared’s Auntie
- The man with sticks uses MapQuest
- LA shot this on his actual lunch break
- Kixxie flew up to Seattle and mixed Flaming Hot Cheetos with Bangus Sisig
- DJ Nphared spent a portion of our video budget on walkie talkie’s to add authenticity to his role as a valet driver
- Bambu found a beer by the garbage and drank it
- DJ Nphared and Bambu did not coordinate the missed high-five
- Bambu got into a car accident a few hours before the shoot
- Prometheus Brown and his wife, Chera, do their “Food & Sh*t" pop-up restaurants regularly throughout Seattle and are looking to take it on the road soon
- DJ Nphared saw the movie Gravity twice
- Grynch did not know we were filming a video
- Our homeboy Nam made sure nobody walked through the ‘set.’
- Chel, who opens the door and calls us in at the end, is a family friend who loves this little girl: http://laylashlhfight.org/ - and so do we!
- Kizamu, The Bar’s manager, wore three different Seahawks tops throughout the day
- The Bar listened to Chip Fu the entire day

Song: The Weapon

Artist: MADlines


The lovely MADlines (Canary Sing) just came out with a video for "The Weapon" off of her latest album "Love Child". Gotta love the Reggae vibe this track (and whole album) has. You can cop the album here.  

Song Of The Day: Radio Sunday (4/6/14)

Song: Mits ft. La and Kixxie Siete

Shout out to Street Sounds for blasting this Barkada track last night. The only way I can really describe this song is bangin’…because it is. Pro Brown & Bambu kill it alongside La and Kixxie Siete. Go buy the album here

Song Of The Day: Sippin’ Saturday (4/5/14)

Song: Sleepwalking (prod. by M-Pyre)

Artist: T.S

Album: Sleepwalking

Here’s a new track for you by T.S that’s straight chill. It’s the title track of his second album that’s produced entirely by M-Pyre (Respect My Region). I’ve listened to the the album once already and I gotta say, I’m pretty impressed. Download it out here
