Ten More Music Videos with Slow Motion Scenes

1. Kaytranada - "Holy Hole Inna Donut" 2013  Kaytranada will be performing at Decibel Festival's Resident Advisor Showcase on September 24 on the third floor of the EMP Museum. I'm pretty sure his live show isn't this sporty, but I will be sure to let you know.

2. FKA x inc. - "FKA x inc." 2014  She is a total badass. Still can't decide on the FKA Twigs vs. Flying Lotus + Thundercat dilemma on November 18 in Seattle.

3. Sylvan Esso - "Coffee" 2014  I love this song but I still cringe a little when he says "my baby does the hanky panky."

4. How To Dress Well - "And It Was You" 2012  I'm pretty sure this video is about people worshipping a guy who rides a segway?

5. Ella Eyre - "Deeper" 2013  Slow motion dance scenes with fans.

6. Fractures - "Twisted" 2013  (Australia) These guys make great songs, but, they're all total downers.

7. Majid Jordan - "A Place Like This" 2014  This lady keeps getting run into like the chick in Dr. Dre + Snoop Dogg's "Nothin' But A G Thing" (at 3:30), Dre did it better. This guy sounds like he wants to be all Weeknd-y.

8. Phantogram - "When I'm Small" 2011  This is an example of how hair tossing can be a dance move.

9. Method Man + Redman - "Y.O.U." 1999  So excited for our Method Man + Redman show at The Showbox on November 3.

10. Atmosphere - "Bitter" 2014  Slow-motion snowball fights are some Minnesota shit? Props to Atmosphere for being on top of their game.

The beginning of this Atmosphere song reminds me of "Fuck Regrets" by Datkid and Dee Green. No slow-motion in this video, but, they are from Bristol, which is fucking awesome.

Ten Animated Videos Part IV

1. Flume f. Ghostface Killah and Autre Ne Veut - "Space Cadet" 2014  Yes dude, Ghostface Killah cartoon. The song is just aight though, even with the interesting artist trio.

2. Atoms For Peace - "Default" 2012  I'll try to draw this on graph paper and get back to you.

3. Dudley Perkins (AKA Declaime) - "Lung Specialist" 2014  This video has Rotating Heads, I love that shit. Ten more rotating heads coming soon.

4. The MC Type - "Murder Mystery" 2013 (SEATTLE MUSIC) Type's "My Girlfriend Beats Me" with Grieves appears on Ten Music Videos featuring Seattle from March 2013. Animation by Graves 33.

5. Captain Murphy - "Cosplay" 2014  Flying Lotus will likely be performing some Captain Murphy songs at his show at The Neptune Theater on November 18 with Thundercat. His "Birth Of Captain Murphy" video recently appeared on Ten Great Non-Music Videos.

6. Bishop Nehru - "You Stressin'" 2014 (Produced by Disclosure)  Bishop Nehru has worked with all of your favorite producers and he's only 19!

7. Radiohead - "2+2=5" 2003  This is one of my favorite tracks from Hail To The Thief. I do love "There, There" more.

8. Pete Cannon + Dr Syntax feat. Jehst + Del The Funky Homosapien - "Do What We Wanna Do" 2014  Let's bring Jehst to Seattle, then we can build a UK/Seattle bridge.

9. Raz Simone - "Bow Down" 2014  (SEATTLE MUSIC)  This is pretty pro-style for a Seattle artist. I think he's making some great moves with his promotion, but I don't listen to his breathy raps for fun; yet.

10. FKA Twigs - "How's That" 2013  She certainly has wow factor, doesn't she.

The first, second, and third lists of animated videos can be found in the links provided. There's even a list of partially animated videos here.

Ten Great Non-Music Videos

1. Ten Hundred - "Reincarnated" 2014  It's great to see P Smoov working so hard for his art. I also love how well he and his lady collaborate on her fashion website, The Damsel In The Dress.

2. Bob Burnquist - "Dreamland" 2013  It's really too bad the music sucks because this is a rad video. Shoulda went with Wu-Tang.

3. Hangin Tuff! Episode #4 Featuring La Luz - 2014  Bobbi Rich kills it with her Hangin Tuff series and La Luz are some of Seattle's most talented and interesting musicians.

4. 7 Slaps In The Sack Episode 1: Gifted Gab 2014   It's great seeing people put their ideas into action, like Miss Casey Carter, Gifted Gab, and Carrick Wenke.

5. The Sand Animation of Kseniya Simonova from Ukraine's Got Talent 2009  Hats off to this lady for getting way outside of the sandbox with her art.

6. MF Doom Lecture from Madrid - 2011  One hour and 39 minutes of Doom!

7. DJ Shadow + Quannum MCs Live on Radio 1 Breezeblock 2003  I have this recorded to minidisc if anyone needs to borrow it. One of the founding members of Quannum Projects, DJ Shadow, will be here in Seattle on October 8 with Cut Chemist to play the Renegades of Rhythm Tour at The Neptune Theater. It's the same night as our ReignCity Yasiin Bey/ Mos Def show at The Showbox. What a rad dilemma.

8. Flying Lotus - "The Birth Of Captain Murphy" 2014  There is currently a petition circling to get the birth of Flying Lotus' alter-ego turned into a series.

9. Drunk History - "Sylvia Robinson Creates A Rap Group" 2014  A teaser for the best Drunk History ever about the making of "Rapper's Delight."

10. Inside Bjork 2003  She's got a lot of "quirk." I will hopefully be attending her Biophilia Tour November 1 at The Neptune Theater.

Ten Music Video featuring Vinyl

1. Gensu Dean feat. Large Professor - "Forever" 2013  That is a stellar stack of records. Hip Hop education training video taught by Large Professor.

2. DJ Krush feat. Esthero - "Final Home" 1999  DJ Krush remains to be one of my (many) favorite artists. Code 4109 is my shit.

3. 14KT - "Blessed" 2012  So many of these Mello Music Group songs/artists are almost there, but,  not there yet. I'm still listening because I know they are on the right track.

4. Sandpeople - "Roll Call" 2007  Some Portland shit. I would love to know the name of this record store and if it's still open because I'm all over it.

5. Akua Naru - "The Backflip" (prod. by Drumkidz + Christian Nink) - 2010  Akua Naru is about traveling around the world, fusing her own style of hip hop with the music she finds along her way; that's fucking awesome.

6. Araless - "Attention" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC) Produced by Goldenbeets. Keep an eye out for Araless and the rest of Filthy Fingers United, I will be sure to keep you posted.

7. Statik Selektah feat. Joey Bada$$ + Freddie Gibbs - "Carry On" 2014  The casual yet orchestrated entrance of Joey Bada$$ and Freddie Gibbs reminds me of Kendrick's entrance in "Nosetalgia" (at 1:30) with Pusha T. I love that shit.

8. Showbiz + A.G. - "Soul Clap" 1992  Fat Joe be like, "can I get a Soul Clap?"

9. Slimkid3 + DJ Nu-Mark - "Bom Bom Fiya" 2014  These guys have been making great music for more than 20 years, the pattern continues.

10. Def Dee feat. El Da Sensei - "Yeah" 2014  Def Dee pays homage to vinyl in the latest video from his new release, "Deja Vu."

Ten Smoky Music Videos

1. Slimkid3 + DJ Nu-Mark - "I Know, Didn't I" 2014  This instantly became one of my new favorite songs, their new self-titled album was released on Delicious Vinyl today.

2. The Jets - "You Got It All" 1986  I finally forgave my sisters for cutting up the cover art from my Jets tape to use as a Barbie poster. It's initiation of dream sequence smoke.

3. Nemo Achida - "Big Lights, Deep Shades" 2011  I have yet to love any other Nemo Achida song.

4. Method Man and Redman - "How High" 1995  This is from The Show Soundtrack, not the great movie with the same name. My team at ReignCity has a Method Man + Redman show at The Showbox on November 3.

5. Cypress Hill feat Method Man and Redman - "Cisco Kid" 2001  This one IS from the great movie How High starring Method Man and Redman. B-Real of Cypress Hill will also be at the Method Man + Redman show at The Showbox.

6. Taco - "Puttin' On The Ritz" 1982  Seems crazy that someone would put Blackface in their video in the eighties, this is the original uncensored version that still contains the ugly stuff. Great song though.

7. Raury - "God's Whisper" 2014  Fun with smoke bombs, this is yet another Pigeons + Planes find.

8. Harry Clean feat. Dave B, JusMoni, YK Ari- "For The Love" 2014  (SEATTLE MUSIC)  I like the short film style of this one by Seattle's Detooz Films, they are constantly progressing, which is awesome. Plus, there's Barney and 2Pac.

9. Ron Contour + Factor - "Wondrous Things" 2012  The smoke is for the bees man, this video is very "Smashing Pumpkins - 1979."

10. Pyramid Vritra - "Eleven12" 2014  One of the latest Stones Throw finds.

Two Great Songs Titled "Pistols At Dawn"

1. Diogenes feat. Barfly - "Pistols At Dawn" 2014 (SEATTLE MUSIC) *Diogenes is one of the founding members of Filthy Fingers United. FFU currently has 30+ producers throughout the US. They've been releasing themed monthly compilations for the last year, available on their Bandcamp page and you should totally fux with them.

2. Seinabo Sey - "Pistols At Dawn" 2014  *This rad Swedish lady has released only 3 songs and they are all amazing, previously done by Jai Paul with his 2 epic songs. Her two videos will appear someday in this website but they are waiting in the 80+ lists I have currently under construction.

P.S. Diogenes did it first
