New Video: Dan Black Feat. Kid Cudi – ‘Symphonies Remix’

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/danblack1-300x225.jpg

Dan Black has been making some mild noise on the low for the past couple of years. Reppin the UK this electronica artist released two singles in 2008 and gained some serious notoriety with his song ‘HYPNTZ’ – a mash up of Biggies ‘Hypnotize’ and Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’.  The original to Syphonies was released at the end of [...]

Video: David Guetta feat Kid Cudi – Memories

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/david_guetta_-_one_love_official_album_cover-300x250.jpg

Funny story about this video. My friend called me up a few months ago telling me that he was going to be in a video shoot in Miami, and asking me “who the hell Kid Cudi and David Guetta was?” Explaining to him who these two people were was actually quite funny. Needless to say, [...]

VIDEO: Kid Cudi – The Pursuit of Happiness

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/398px-Kidcudi_300dpi-300x250.jpg

Even though I completely shitted on Cudi’s debut album (sorry fam!), I’m loving this video for The Pursuit of Happiness. Actually the track, produced by MGMT and Ratatat is one of my favorite on the album, and the video, an art piece, is a simple yet piteous critique on our club culture. (via Jabari) [...]

Review: Kid Cudi – Man on the Moon…End of Day

http://www.thecouchsessions.comfile:///Users/winstonford/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot-1.png

Kid Cudi Man on the Moon…End of Day Is there any room for self-deprecating hip-hop? The genre has always been about masochism, from the early days of rap battles to today’s conquests about how many hos a rapper can get and how much bottles of champagne they can pop before the night is over. But [...]

VIDEO: Kid Cudi Interviewed in London

So if you didn’t know, Kid Cudi is dropping an album this week, and my homegirl Marsha (of Soulculture.co.uk) caught up with the dude in London. Whatever you think about the Cudi, you have to admit that he gives some of the best interviews out of any of the “new class” of hip-hop artists. Instead [...]

Review: The Great Hangover Tour with B.O.B, Asher Roth, and Kid Cudi

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/urb-great-hangover-300x300.jpg

There has been a lot of discussion about the future of hip-hop. Where will it go? What it would sound like? Who will be the key players? If there is any indication, the future of hip-hop might just sound like Kid Cudi, Asher Roth, and B.O.B. The three, along with New York rapper 88 Keys [...]

Kid Cudi – Poke Her Face (Make ‘Em Say)

Kid Cudi – Poke Her Face (Make ‘Em Say)

Regardless of what you think of Kid Cudi (his emo tirades are well documented by now), Cudi’s latest release “Poke Her Face,” is reinventing how music is getting pushed from the Internet to the mainstream. After the success of “Day N’ Nite,” and the Crooker’s remix, Cudi’s people were scrambling to find a follow-up to [...]

So yeah, I was ready for the Kanye/Badu/Common lovefest at the Red Bull Moon Tower to begin. I had prime real estate AND my SLR. It was about to go down. Then Red Bull got shut down by the cops.  No worries. Me and Marcus were kidnapped by a girl from the “Austin hood” who [...]

SXSW Video: Little Boots and Kid Cudi – Day N Nite

SXSW Video: Little Boots and Kid Cudi – Day N Nite

Both Little Boots and Cudi are two of my favorite artists in 2009, and they both are on the fast track for success this year. I was glad I actually got the chance to meet both in Austin last week. Of course, I’m not surprised that this spontaneous on-stage meeting happened at the Perez Hilton [...]
