H∆SHTAG$ - Don't Call It #Beats - Episode 4

Found this Gem over the summer:
 For the fourth episode of H∆SHTAG$ - our web series 
chronicling Internet-based music - we take a deep dive
 into the fledgling beats scene. Flying Lotus, TNGHT, 
The Gaslamp Killer, Shlohmo and XXYYXX are just a
 few of the artists that talk about how a small LA club 
night and circle of friends turned into a truly global 
phenomenon and transformed both electronic music 
and hip hop along the way.

 from the Red Bull Music Academy, shedding light 
on some of the most fascinating themes emerging
 from the web in recent times

14KT - Five & Ten (Official Music Video)

From the 14KT album "Nickel & Dimed"

About the song: "This is one of the few times that I've written most of the verse in my head. I was reading ECCLESIASTES 2:17-23 and that scripture was right in alignment with how I felt as an artist at the time. I wrote this off of the frustration of releasing instrumental projects in my profession. I've been approached/treated MANY times in very unprofessional and disrespectful ways. I wanted to be a voice for all of my producer peers who deal with this frustration and to serve as a notice for up and coming producers/beat makers."

Animation by James Reitano & TFU Studios
