MUSIC VIDEO: Dirty Up – “Aimless”

Instrumental hip-hop producer Dirty Up has debuted a phenomenal new single, entitled “Aimless,” with tripped-out visuals to match that can be found after the jump. Featuring an immersive atmosphere composed of down-pitched vocals and the occasional fluttering of snares along with a thundering bassline and blissful samples, the cut is quite possibly the Boone-based artist’s […]

Glass Animals Gooey

Watch Glass Animals’ “Gooey” Music Video

Our very first taste of Yeezus came from a historic performance of “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead” on Saturday Night Live last Spring, a dark […]
