The 1978ers – Far video

Unflappable rapper yU “The Humble King” and producer Slimkat‘s collaboration The 1978ers (so named after their mutual birth year) recently premiered another music video from their debut full length album People Of Today, out on the almighty Mello Music Group label. The clip for “Far”, directed by Jay Brown, reminds me that we rarely see the stars in hip-hop videos, and I like the notion of yU and Slimkat looking to the heavens for inspiration.

The 1978ers – Without A Clue video

Liv, the popular club space above Bohemian Caverns, serves as the backdrop for director Jay Brown’s visuals for “Without A Clue”, the second single from yU and Slimkat’s team-up The 1978ers. It’s totally appropriate for this jazzy, thoughtful track featuring live trumpet, trombone and clever use of the vocal sample providing the title of the song. Grab The 1978ers’ debut full length album People Of Today on the Mello Music Group label for more goodness.
