  • Me Myself and I

    De La Soul

    Year: 1996

    Runtime: 55 min

    With their clever, surrealistic lyrics, inventive use of sampling and incorporating an eclectic mix of reggae, funk, jazz, fashion and psychedelia into their sound, New York-based DE LA SOUL are one of the most original and influential groups on the hip hop scene. Singing about peace and love rather than about sleaze and violence like most of their considerably more hardcore rap contemporaries, De La Soul come across as modern day hippies, an image which found favor with rock audiences. Hailed on their arrival on the scene in 1989 as the future of hip hop, De La Soul were quickly perceived as the leaders of a contingent of New York-based alternative rappers who dubbed themselves The Native Tongues Posse. This movement for a while looked as if it was going to eclipse hardcore hip hop in terms of popularity. This concert, filmed at the 1997 Lokerse Festival, features their hits 'Me, Myself And I' (with its sample of Funkadelic's '(Not Just) Knee Deep'), 'Ring, Ring, Ring' and 'Breakadawn'.

  • MTV Unplugged

    Kinky

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 50 min

    In an intimate live performance, Kinky joins forces with MTV for their first-ever 'Unplugged' album, featuring a superstar line-up of guests and new versions of their classic hits. Hosted by Diego Luna, the Unplugged album features collaborations with an international crew of stars including Carla Morrison, La Mala Rodríguez, Banda Los Recoditos, Voz de Mando and Beto Zapata (Grupo Pesado). The first single, “A Donde Van Los Muertos?” featuring Carla Morrison debuted #1 upon its release in Mexico. Kinky originally formed in the musically diverse and culturally rich scene of Monterrey, Mexico. More than 10 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the LAMC, where they ended up winning the conference's prestigious "LAMC Discovery Contest." The band has received multiple Latin Grammy nominations for their unique and innovative blend of electronic and alternative rock and has been established as a global touring band. Kinky's self-titled debut album received rave reviews from both international and national press. The album featured massive hit songs and much-synched classics such as "Mas" and "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor.” Kinky’s music has been featured in numerous soundtracks (Man on Fire, Thirteen), TV shows (Gossip Girl, Dexter, Weeds, NCIS, Alias), TV commercials (Motorola, Taco Bell, Smirnoff Ice, Nissan, Honda), and video games like EA Sports' FIFA and Tiger Woods' PGA Tour. Their popular live shows have allowed the band to constantly tour around the world, performing at festivals such as Coachella, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands and many more. “Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” – The New York Times
