ZAKEE – “Dope Girl”

“DOPE GIRL”
Produced & Written By ZAKEE

ZAKEE’s main inspiration behind “Dope Girl” was to capture the classic feel of music legends like Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan, as well as the people he idolized as a child. “Like in most hoods, the coolest cats were the dope boys who walked with a crazy stroll, and the dope fiends who were so high, they didn’t know they were strolling,” says ZAKEE. The smooth thumping production for “Dope Girl” came from a collaboration with Drughorse, with ZAKEE laying down the drums and bass, while Drughorse accented the beat with guitar riffs.

Jesse Boykins III – Amorous

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Artist: Jesse Boykins III
Song: Amorous
Dir: Dr. Woo

“‎​​I am a reawakening of the Romantic Movement ; an observer of Love and the Power it holds. So when given the opportunity to document my priceless experiences and connect them with moments in melody I’ve captured, I am humbled. Amorous is my appreciation for the relationship and the magic it holds between two people. The essence of a bond and its affect on its environment for the better. Special thanks to London for its environment and the Lovers that shared their intimacy. The Beauty Created.” itunes.com/jesseboykinsiii
