My First Hip Hop Music Video Experience

Bucktown USA:  “Slow Rhythms” Artist: Jewels featuring Camacho / Produced by:  Cynical Smith and General Steele

Really proud to work with the Bucktown family!  The same kind of connection and chemistry that an amazing jazz/ classical chamber ensemble has is what this hip hop family shares with the world.  SALUTE!
