A longstanding member of the Santana band, Bill Ortiz is proud to present a music video for the song “We Are What We Are” from his new full-length release Highest Wish. This new video features Casual from the legendary hip hop crew Hieroglyphics and was filmed entirely on locations in San Francisco and Oakland. This video is the first music video from Highest Wish and is both visually engaging and maintains the spiritual message that is embodied in all of Bill’s music.
As she prepares her debut album, one of the West Coast’s most promising new artists, Marz Lovejoy, has linked up with director GRVTY to film a set of visuals, accompanying her latest track,"DOLO."

In addition to the fresh project drop-off, the skater-turned-rapper has also let loose a new visual today for "Muthaf*ck My Enemies" directed by Jason Ano (i.e. Rocky's Purple Swag).
Now, Harry Fraud is excited to introduce the world to his new artist, the first signed to his Surf School label, Eddie B. Together, and in conjunction with Man Bites Dog Records, the two will be releasing an LP, Paper, Piff, And Polo, this spring, but first they're giving fans a free EP, Horsepower, which will be released for free at this year's SXSW Music Festival. Today, Eddie B & Harry Fraud are releasing the first single from that free EP, "Courage."
