Michete - "Touch It"

This is probably the most polished music video from Michete to date directed by Kyle Bain. As usual the rap style from Michete is righteous with clever lyrics. During the course of the video the players are assembled at a pharmaceutical warehouse where they are experimenting with what looks like Nickelodeon's Gak. For those of you who don't remember it was a neon colored silly putty and in this video seems to be something of a fetish. Michete even paints her face to accent the bold color of the putty which adds to the visual consistency of the video. 
 
Michete encourages our voyeurism while somehow satirizing the life of a pop star with three simple words, "Look At Me!" Michete is always one to put the prov-oke in the prov-acitive encouraging us again to "Go ahead and touch it." We can safely bet this is a sexual come on as Michete proceeds to make out in her music video with those who are willing to do just that. Overall this is a stellar new addition to the growing library of Michete's work. In this music video Michete calls out her haters and skeptics. I would encourage anyone to start exploring her catalogue and you will see Michete is not just a one-off. Take a gander whenever you are looking for something hard and wild to rock out to.

    Zeus Rebel Waters - "LUV" I have a soft spot in my heart for women on the pole, but an even softer spot for Zeus Rebel Waters. Tuning his usual rasp toward the traditional trap beat, the one word that can describe his 2020 single “Luv” love is, “classic”. The simplicity of the song’s intention… Read more

    Amyl and The Sniffers - Guided By Angels I was sent this video by Amyl and the Sniffers the other day and immediately gave it a watch. At first listen, I was like, "Where have I heard this style of music before?" It reminded me a lot of a local band I listen to here in Dallas called… Read more

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more

    MILA SMITH - LIARS & FAKES It can take some people a lifetime to learn how to spot the fakers, but at only sixteen Mila Smith has turned her bad friend blues into a banger. “Liars & Fakes”, the debut single from the South African songstress, is a soulful bop descended from disco edits of yore,… Read more

    XHAANIA - PULL UP The last party you attended may feel like a midday dream from a far off time when feeling yourself included nails done, hair done and everything did. While this last year has made it feel easier than ever to indulge in that 3:32pm catnap, Xhaania’s new single, “Pull Up” is… Read more
