Los Poetas – Silencios (Dir. Alex Narvaez) [Video]

Toronto, ON – As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Which is why I was happy to once again see Che Uno and Louwop of Los Poetas team up with director Alex Narvaez for their latest video release. Both “Slaughter” and the self-titled “Los Poetas” were incredibly well put together and the videos have gone a long way to get the Los Poetas name out. “Silencios,” produced by Vago, comes in support of the group’s self-titled debut which is available on iTunes. Check it out below.

The video also has an extra clip towards the end – a special performance by Pueblo Viejo (featuring Dr. Nativo), live from the Zaculeu Mayan Ruins, in Huehetenango, Guatemala.

TG Savage – For A Chicken [Video]

Sudbury, ON – Sudbury up-and-comer, TG Savage of The Northern Union, a new talent on our radar but clearly coming into his own and ready to be heard. I was instantly feeling his new “For A Chicken” video and was reminded of Stealth Bomb Records general, Snak The Ripper, out in Vancouver. Much like Snak, TG is a bit rough around the edges but comes with a killer flow and an unassuming air of confidence about him. But don’t get it twisted, TG has his own sound and story. He could be a huge boost for the Sudbury scene and is definitely an artist we’ll be keeping an eye on. “For A Chicken,” produced by Maneo, was shot, directed and edited by NdotTV. As far as we know, the song will be featured on the Guilty Savage project, coming soon. Check out the video after the jump.

In other news from The Northern Union, catch the crew opening for Toronto’s Honey Cocaine in Sudbury on Friday, June 19 at SteelWorkers’ Union Hall & Conference Center (66 Brady Street). The event will also feature K. Karma and more. You can find the flyer below.
