Mr. Lif & Akrobatik are The Perceptionists (Official Mini-Documentary) [Video]

Posted on May 30, 2017

12 years ago, Mr. Lif & Akrobatik’s group The Perceptionists were set to release their debut album on the now legendary label Def Jux. The Boston trio (which included DJ Fakts One at the time) had dropped the single “Memorial Day” outlining the politics of the day that were not so dissimilar to today’s climate. Their debut album “Black Dialogue” hit and earned acclaim across the board from XLR8R to Entertainment Weekly, and landed in the Top 50 on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s Charts. From those expectant beginnings, The Perceptionists launched their commercial career. But just before the first tour DJ Fakts One left the group to focus on family. Lif & Ak went out on the road performing at Paid Dues alongside their peers Murs, and Atmosphere. The record had its moment in the sun, and then the business of music quickly pushed Lif back into his solo artist position to prepare for a follow up album. Akrobatik signed a solo deal with Fatbeats. After a near fatal tour bus crash (38 feet off an embankment) and "I Heard It Today," Mr. Lif took some time off from his solo career and ended up joining the DC super group Thievery Corporation in 2009 (Lif is still a part of the Thievery Corporation team). Akrobatik was suddenly hit with emergency surgery that required an aortic dissection to save his life.

This is the official mini-documentary of Mr. Lif & Akrobatik (The Perceptionists).

Khalid – Saved (Documentary) [Video]

Posted on February 2, 2017

Khalid's life is about to change, for real. The 18-year-old R&B singer is set to drop his debut album American Teen on March 3 and The FADER was there to capture these last moments before the world receives his first, impressive musical statement. The album features tender and dazzling songs about love, like "Location," which was released last May and has received a ton of attention.

Khalid spent his life moving around the country with his mother, Linda Wolfe, a single mom and member of the U.S. Army chorus. He reveals in the documentary that she's his most important musical inspiration and says he was always shy to show off his talents in front of her because of her incredibly strong gift. Those maternal gifts are on full display as Khalid steps in front of the mic to record "Shot Down," an incredible ballad which will appear on American Teen.

The singer found his true home and a place to belong in El Paso, Texas, where the family moved before his senior year of high school. In the documentary, we see Khalid head to a Friday night football game and a fast food parking lot with friends and family. "I get so much love, from a city that I'm not even predominantly from, everyone is nice and welcoming and they treat me like their own," he reflects.
