Children of I.L.L.I.O.S. - Elysian (Official Music Video)

Directed By Nick Visuals

The Children of I.L.L.I.O.S. and director Nick Visuals bust out the Hi-8 (or at least a fun Hi-8 type after affect) for the visuals to accompany their forth single from upcoming "Journey Through The Blakk Sun". The Moods produced "Elysian" can also be found on YCA's "#LTAB2015" mixtape.

Keep an eye on the kids, their journey has just begun and you can't take the trip with them when "Journey Through the Blakk Sun" drops April 28th. 

Kolby Woods - Fluid (Prod. Meniskos)

Sounds like 197's Kolby Woods has come out of hiding with a new jam produced by Meniskos. "Fluid" is the first of several Kolby and Meniskos collaborations you can expect to hear on their upcoming project "More Textures". Be prepared to feel some type of way, "More Textures" will be here soon to cater to your senses.

Mystikal: Live @ Reggies Rock Club (4-16-15)

Directed By Katrina Tarzian

Mystikal was in town recently as the latest to grace a Sound Select stage courtesy of Red Bull and Fake Shore Drive. Although this Nolo legend spent some time away from the music and the glory days of No Limit records are long behind him, this industry veteran commanded the audience's attention with one hit after another.

Supporting acts featuring Tree, Chris Crack and Martin $ky brought out the local scene with them to mix and mingle with the nostalgic hip hop fan. Sound Select events are always some of the most diverse crowds. If you missed the party, check out the awesome recap Katrina Tarzian did for us and make sure to keep up with our friends at Red Bull and FSD for details on their next event in June.

Saba: "Symmetry" Live @ Bottom Lounge (4-24-15)

Directed By 'Go ILL

Among many other events last night, Saba gathered a nearly sold out crowd at the Bottom Lounge for his most recent headlining performance. From the moment he walked out on to the stage, it was obvious Saba made some tweaks to his live show. Sab began the show by constructing "Scum" on the MPC before performing it, and he continued to run through all the hits from "ComfortZone" and "GetCOMFORTABLE". In addition to playing crowd favorites, Saba performed a brand new track with some smooth choreographed assistance from his Pivot Gang brethren.

It's not professional camera work on my part, but you can get a preview of "Symmetry" in its entirety up top.
