EKOH Releases Official Music Video for “Daudrie”

Las Vegas based Hip Hop Artist EKOH has released the Official Music Video for his newest single, “Daudrie,” off of his Along The Way LP. Directed by Robert Machado in Las Vegas, “Daudrie” was inspired by the critically acclaimed Netflix documentary Audrie & Daisy.

“I was unnerved by the story of Audrie and Daisy, and after watching I felt compelled to tackle the subject matter, directly and honestly; a video was also intended to be part of the equation. The idea was to tell the story of this girl’s nightmare and film the video in first person perspective; I wanted the viewer to see through HER eyes, let them experience the discomfort, the loneliness, the heartbreak. Everything. Then I met Rob Machado and he shared my passion and vision to bring the story to life through this medium. I think we we created exactly what we intended.” – EKOH

Elusive Electronic Music Producer Susan Gittes has released her debut, down techno-industrial EP, Alone, via Bishops Bloc Records.

“Susan Gittes did it! Introducing one of the hardest, darkest artists we could find with one slowed down, dark industrial techno stomper and one what we would call soundtrack-esque industrial nightmare.” – Bishops Bloc Records

beatport | iTunes

Slowed down techno and industrial sounds drenched in darkness. Nobody knows anything about Susan Gittes other than what we hear in her music’; its our best guess that she is a psychopathic killer on the loose, with a sampler and a drum machine. Sometimes heavy on percussion while other times heavy on the synths and soundscapes, Susan Gittes definitely knows how to create a feeling. Regardless of who Susan Gittes is, this release is already getting some major underground techno support from the likes of D.A.V.E. the Drummer aka Henry CullenCorvad and Fear The Priest. When contacted about the tracks and her process in music making Susan only replied with “…when i make songs I’m basically acting on impulses, what results is often emotional leftovers from my last seduction.”

Warden Teams Up With Sisterwife on Bold and Bizarre New Single and Music Video, “Carpe The DMs”

Los Angeles, CA based electronic producer Warden once again shakes up expectations with his newest and most in your face release, “Carpe The DMs (Feat. Sisterwife),” and the duo further ramps up the audaciousness with a wildly outrageous music video. Originally premiered on The Music Ninja, the parody themed video was directed by Tim Hsiung and the multi-talented Sisterwife.

“‘Carpe The DMs’ was an interesting and confrontational concept I came up with with Sisterwife. The idea behind the song was to highlight the frivolousness of stereotypical party people you meet. The video addresses how easily it is to be influenced and sold useless things that are supposed to make you, ‘feel and look better and improve the value of your life!’ I end up in an infomercial nightmare where Sisterwife is trying to either sell me these products or kill me.” – Warden

“The lyrics to ‘Carpe the DMs’ are based on real life events pulled from drunk texts, and witnessing a girl outside the club. We tracked the vox in Warden’s closet…In 2017 social media ad targeting at times feels like a nightmare. You say “I want french fries” to your friend, open your phone, there’s an ad for french fries in your face. Also the accessibility people have to just contact anyone at any time of the day can be relentless and exhausting. We wanted to convey that feeling with the video in a different context. Hope you ENJOY! ‘CARPE THE DMs;’ — NOW!! … or else…” – Sisterwife

“The video parodies a few different things and is akin to the humor pushed by Tim & Eric. If you like the outrageous, then “Carpe the DMs” is right up your alley like it is ours. The song is a masterful bass track that shares the videos quirkiness. Together they’re a project unparalleled by most and we have the honor of sharing them with you first in this premiere!” – Tyler Trew – The Music Ninja
