Earlier this summer, the Drums & Ammo production crew released their debut instrumental album, Vol. 1, and have kept fans plenty busy since, with a collection of remixes and videos, even pairing a variety of the instrumentals with up-and-coming rappers for their Extra Clip EP release. And now, continuing to push the creative envelope, Drums & Ammo member Al Jieh has collaborated with artist and video director Max Capacity to shoot a video for the Vol. 1 track "Love Mind." "Max Capacity is a dope pixel artist; we're fans of each other's work" explains Jieh on why the two decided to collaborate. "Max uses weird VHS gear to record and process it all for his pixel art. He's one of my favorite artists right now."

For a single called "Love Mind," the video does well to provide a striking visual for the music, an instrumental that, to Al Jieh, "always sounded like an old porno song." Max Capacity brings the vision to life, taking an old porno clip of two women kissing and enjoying each other's company, turning the shots into a colorful, pixilated and hazy clip that compliments the music while giving a nod to psychedelic cinematography of yesteryear.

Hailing from Toronto Canada, Italian Frank Anthony bursts onto the music scene in a BIG way with the first taste from his explosive debut album "Undeniable". The song is titled "Rubbing Off On You" & features Young Money artist Tyga giving his best on 16 bars. The back story: After partnering with US based songwriter, producer and manager Dre Allen on an unrelated venture involving their respective event marketing companies Best Reps Event Marketing (which Allen owns) in Las Vegas and Cole Event Management (owned by Frank Anthony's family) in Toronto, Dre Allen bought Frank Anthony to the states and immediately began connecting the pieces through his relationships that would eventually lead to Frank collaborating with super producers Scott Storch, The Underdogs, Poo Bear, The Audibles, Young Money's new superstar rapper Tyga, Steven Russel the writer of Chris Brown & Jordin Sparks smash "No Air" and many more. The forthcoming album titled "Undeniable" will be an independent venture with major backing from both marketing firms and will be conducted in the spirit of generating strategic partnerships throughout the industry with record labels, distributors and numerous corporate brands that will benefit from the marketing and release of the forthcoming album. In addition, they are in the process of filming a music video for one of the Scott Storch produced collaborations with Lupe Fiasco in which Lupe will appear!
