It’s that time again, folks. Bongo Boy Records presents to us the latest edition of their Bongo Boy TV series, which spotlights newly released music videos by up-and-coming artists. Airing their music videos on Channel 29 in Portland, OR and on more than 72 other channels across the country (see the TVGuide at bongoboytv.com for your local listing), today we’re taking a closer look at Episode 9.
Season 11 Episode 9 begins with GelaX’s disturbed and angsty track, Voodoo. Cold, dark lighting and scenes with characters confined to small spaces accompany the spooky, psychological lyric of this dance track. Reverse Mechanic is up next with the warm and fuzzy video for his love song, Run. It chops between home movies and road trip footage, and an extended shot of the Minnesota singer running to the chapel in his Groom’s suit.
Tina Tara’s quirky music video for Maybe is an extremely artful reimagining of the dynamics of domestic relationships. The singer makes use of a door-delivery, male robot company and we are treated to some hilarious footage of her being served and pampered by her toy boys while listening to her catchy, club anthem. Up next is The Dead Daisies and their head-banging, hard-rock track, Bustle and Flow. The video features some wicked animation and images of trolls, crows and burning graveyards provide a suitably haunting accompaniment to the growling guitar riffs in the track.
Niko Brim flashes his street cred in the video for his song, BONITA. Stacks of Benjamins and poker chips burst through the lens in this one, while he delights with his relaxed bars and hard-hitting trap beats. Tom Keifer and his band go all-out rockstar mode for their energetic All Amped Up video. Backstage antics, gear destruction, and heaving show footage are the perfect companion to their old-school, rocking sounds. Finally, OBAS & RICK ROSS serve up some opulence in the visual for their trap track, HUG THE STREETS (Remix). Gold chains, champagne, and lap dancing are galore in this ode to the hustle.
As always, there’s something for everyone in this Bongo Boy broadcast. There’s a brilliant variety of genres in this episode and some incredibly creative video work.
