Quietly creeping his way into the music scene singer/songwriter, Villz, introduces his newest video entitled “420am.” The Florida native relocated to Nashville, TN to embark on a new journey and work on new music for the masses as a part of the Gold House regime. Seemingly hitting the jackpot once he relocated, Villz formed a relationship with producer Mike Ewing and the two have been creating greatness ever since.
420am, which was produced by Ewing, is a track that showcases the vocal talents of Villz in various ways. Tethering the subtle approach of the production with his melodic vocals, Villz creates a moody track that immediately draws the ear once his voice is heard. As if the sensual track isn’t enough, Villz works with the talented TMETRVLR SAO to create a neon-lit, silhouette stemmed visual treatment that is nothing short of perfection. Villz draws the connection in the 2009 film, Enter the Void, which dipicts the life of a drug dealer amongst the bright lights and city dreams of Tokyo but takes a dramatic turn. Once you’ve seen the movie (as suggested by Villz), 420am is that much more intriguing to watch. With the support of GH87, the production of Mike Ewing, and the visual bliss from SAO, what more can one ask for? We’ll answer that with the hopes of more music and visuals to ready our audience for the crazy ride we’re all about to take with the release of Til the End of Summer.
420am has been circulating throughout the blogosphere the past few days at a rapid pace as it has already been featured on the front page of Complex Mag, Hip Hop DX, Thisis50, and YouHeardThatNew amongst other well-respected websites.
Known for his passionate and soulful approach to his music, singer/songwriter Rio introduces us to his new video entitled “Faders.” The usual graceful voice we hear from the R&B crooner is placed on hold for Faders as we’re welcomed with a more ultraviolet sound in the production followed by Rio dabbling with a more hip hop approach.
The Cakemaster directed video was perfectly captured as the young Nashville videographer continues to showcase his hunger to work with like-minded individuals who trust his vision. The video features Rio and his beautiful leading lady taking time away and living in the moment and enjoying one anothers company. Faders stands as Rio’s first release to his upcoming The Feel Good project. Expect that later in the year, but for now enjoy the video below and also catch Rio’s past release, Good Morning Dreamer, if you haven’t already.
