REVIEW: Deejay Element’s “Reality Kings And Reason” (EP)

Deejay Element photo DJLMNT_cover_zps9a200826.jpg Not willing to rest for anyone, including himself, Deejay Element is back with a new release, this one an EP called Reality Kings And Reason.

With five tracks to choose from, one is able to hear the man’s means of production, heightened by the likes of J57, Koncept, Sene, ScienZe, Soul Khan and others getting down by dropping lyrics and flows over the greatness. The loops, drums, horn samples… just everything about it is good and I think the man could do no wrong. It’s nice nonetheless, and as a debut EP, it’s impressive. More EP’s, more singles, bring on that album.

If you have to bite the bullet, you best do it in the right manner. This is what Deejay Elemenet has done in “Complex Individuals”, his self-produced track featuring Audible Doctor, ScienZe, and Sene doing serious damage amongst one another, but not a full on smother.

BEST OF 2012: My favorite music videos of the year

Let me say this off the top: this is not a list of every single music video that was made in 2012. Making a video is now the norm these days, and at times the amount of videos I have a chance in posting is overwhelming. What this is is a listing of my favorites of music videos I have seen and enjoyed. It could be due to the artist, it could be due to the song, it could be a mixture of both, plus some visuals that I found pleasing to my eyes and thus the mind. I did not have a specific video I felt was the absolute best, but I felt these stood out for whatever reason.

J57 has dropped another free track from his recent 2057, and this one brings him together with Homeboy Sandman and Sene for the “oh shit!” factor groove of “Holy Mackerel!”. Feel this.

VIDEO: Sene featuring Blu’s “Backboards”


Sene is here to test your limits, and I really think he’s also here to test his own. His music is about going beyond any level of limits, and he does this in the video made for his track “Backboards”, which features Blu.

The video for “Footprints” is a very simple approach, but for Sene, it works quite well. Watch the video, and there are no hidden meanings: what you see is what you get. Then let the song simmer for you.

VIDEO: Sene featuring Sly 5th Ave.’s “The Feel Reel”


Abstract, gritty, raw: this is what I get from watching this new video by Sene. At a time when it seems every other artist wants to present themselves with no pores, flaws, or risks, it’s nice to hear and see someone who allows themselves to breathe. No suffocation here, ‘The Feel Reel” is the real deal, at least to me it is. The video was directed by Pace Rivers.

The song is from his forthcoming album, Brooklyknight, which will be released on April 24th from Plug Research.

VIDEO: Sene’s “brooklyknight.”


This is not a music video, but rather a promotional “short film” for Sene‘s forthcoming album, brooklyknight. Most of the time I’m not posting stuff like this, but what I like about it is that it’s a story told by the artist himself, so it comes off as one-part promotional but one-part emotional.

Will this method work for everyone else? Check it out. The album will be released on April 24th via Plug Research.
