Make Mine a Double…

Did you know that there are 1,387,202.5 coffee stands in the greater Seattle area?  Seriously.  Give or take a few…thousand.  Regardless, there is only one Fresh Espresso


P Smoov and Rik Rude (ft. Terry Radjaw, sans beard) brewed up some top-notch noises for your ears in Glamour, their debut LP.  If you haven’t heard it yet, I hate you.  For real. Glamour is 14 tracks, extra-hot, with a heapin’-helpin’ of steamed goodness… no bitchy baristas involved!  (No really, you can just get it here.)  But, we can be friends again, as long as you go cop a copy right now. 

And then, after you punch yourself in the sack for sleepin’ on Glamour, keep your eyes peeled for this: blended with the considerable talents of Gray Matter Productions, you’re about to be able to drink in the deliciousness of Fresh Espresso’s first official music video: “Big or Small”

Of course, just like a well-made coffee, these things take time. Luckily for you, I was able to slip onto the set unnoticed (no small feat for a fat guy!), and snap a couple surveillance pics from the upcoming project. OK, maybe I wasn’t quite “unnoticed”… I might have knocked over a light or two…and maybe Rik Rude too – but whatever.

The video is going to be good to the last drop, or my name ain’t Juan Valdez.  Peep:

“Straight takin’ over the bodega”

"Cleanup on aisle one, please" Keyed in.  (See what I did there?)

Yes, they sold this shit there! "Ready for my closeup!"

“On to the stage”

These were all pictures from the locations on Day 1.  Unfortunately, despite my ingenious disguise as a bikini barista, they discovered me and booted me out of the shoot.  Oh well, hopefully I captured enough pics to get you perked up and ready for the Fresh Espresso “Big or Small” music video world premiere.  If not, maybe this will do the trick:  I heard the sounds of a dance-off brewing behind the scenes, and quickly caught this little clip right before I got 86ed.

Terry Radjaw, you got served.

Anyway, you smell that?  That’s the scent of some good shit - figuratively speaking, of course.  Trust me: we know and love our java up here in the Emerald City.  But, even though there are exactly 11.3 billion coffee spots in Seattle, there’s only one place to get that Fresh Espresso… Stay tuned!
