"8MM" video by Metermaids.  Reply with quote  

Thanks for helping us get this past 4K views in the first week!



Following the grit of 9th Wonder-produced lead single (Graveyard Shift,) "8mm" shines a different light on Metermaids, one that pulls from Matt Stine's soulful, string-driven production and reflects the nuanced grainy and saturated texture of the old school film medium from which the song draws its name. "The song is about how life seems to look better and more hopeful when shot in 8mm," Swell says, "because 8mm film most closely resembles how, at least to us, the human mind captures reality."

Really dug this track. It seems like you just don't hear scratches that much anymore in hip hop, and that's a shame.

Typically Buddy Peace has been holding that side of things the fuck down for SFR. But on the Metermaids album, DJ Rob Swift does his god damn thing in grand X-Ecutioners fashion.

We included that link in the original post. Something I just caught wind of was 2DopeBoyz coverage of this video which is a big boost. If you guys have a moment and want to put in a kind word or a thumbs up that would be great:

We were on a mission to get this past 4K views by the end of the week and we're less than 500 views away from that. If you care to support, please share the video with friends via twitter, facebook or other forums/networks. Thank you!

Bumped this several times today and looking forward to the upcoming release. What a great addition to the SFR roster.

This was dope. I've obviously heard of Metermaids before, but haven't really given them a fair shot yet. Looking forward to the album.

Close, but didn't make it to 4K by midnight (EST, which is what counts obvz as it's the time zone in which hip-hop originated).

Too bad, I was going to buy the shit, too. No chance anymore, not now that I know it's on a team of LOSERS.

Shame really... it's pretty good stuff.

Thanks for following our arbitrary number campaign so closely, but I'm happy to say that the video most likely did excede 4K views by midnight (EST) last night. The numbers were locked for a majority of the night. Youtube has been funny with play views. But currently it's at 4,405 views where as last night it was locked at 3945 from 10pm - 12am.

As you can see, I take this stuff very seriously. I'm intense widdit. If you helped out by sharing the video on your own page or by tweeting about it (or even RTing) then thank you very much. If you did none of those things and you only piped up here to suggest that we failed to get as many views as we hoped, then shame on you and may all of Canada come to the realization that artists should not be subsidized by the government.
