ADI ULMANSKY feat. BORGORE – Was It You? [Official Video]

Producer\Singer-songwriter\rapper and all around baddest chic, Adi Ulmansky teams up with rapper Borgore for the trip-hop, R&B-tinged tune, “Was It You?” her latest single and video taken from the killer, Hurricane Girl EP.

In the video, a visually mesmerizing treat directed by Gal Muggia, we see Ulmansky in stunning blue-hair, analyzing the numbing phases of her relationship; “Just where you left me, Wait, was it I that left you? Oh god, my head is melting, It’s a hazy view”  she soulfully sings as the world around her fractures into (perfectly squared) pieces.

The standout track is the only vulnerable moment from the energetic Hurricane Girl  so we’re glad it received the video treatment. Although, we sort of knew it was coming. Adi revealed to us that it’s her favorite track from the EP in our interview with her last year (here).

Check out the video!

“Was It You?” is available now via iTunes, part of the Hurricane Girl EP

Nu Music: 100s – The IVRY EP

With a progressive and modern take on old-school rap, LA-Based hip-hop artist 100s delivers a smooth, oh-so-funky-fresh collection of tunes on his latest EP entitled, IVRY.  From the suave “Ten Freaky Hoes” to the Rick James\Andre 3000-with a disco twist  “Different Type Of Love” (a personal favorite) to the slick, G-Funk-influenced “Fuckin Around” the EP is loaded with West Coast-vibing tunes that will take you on a 1971-Cadillac joyride—-the pure sonic-pleasure kind of ride. If your Mack  game is a little rusty; play the IVRY to regain your mojo.
