Pitch Control - Houston Hip-Hop in Focus

| From

HOUSTON, Texas (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Houston, Texas has always been a hotbed of left-field musical talent, says Pitch Control TV ( They have always done things their own way down south, and for that they should be applauded. But what was once the home of alternative country pioneers is now the center of one of the most vibrant and exciting hip hop scenes in the land. And that scene is captured brilliantly on the new DVD from talented filmmaker Ariel Santschi - "Pitch Control Mixtape Volume 3."

The innovative format contains two hours of interviews, music videos, exclusive concert footage and behind the scenes material from the biggest names in southern rap. The unique style of presentation of the Pitch Control series - a blend of video mixtape and documentary - has already made them essential viewing for rap aficionados across the south.

Santschi has already made a groundbreaking documentary about legendary Houston producer DJ Screw, two weeks before his untimely death in 2000. Following that, he shot and edited Screw-collaborator Pimp C's "Pimpalation" DVD as well as Z-Ro's "Z-Ro Vision" DVD. He has now turned his eye to some of the other rappers and DJs that Screw helped to promote.

On Pitch Control you will find the likes of Underground Kingz (UGK), Trae, ABN, Lil' Keke, Slim Thug, Bosshog Outlawz, Lil' Flip, Big Moe, Hawk, Mike D, Yung Redd and, of course, DJ Screw and the Screwed Up Click. Alongside such legends are many more up and coming stars who are all set to keep Houston's music at the cutting edge.

This DVD combines the traditional look and feel of rap music videos with more candid documentary footage. Having filmed underground music for 12 years, he is adept at bringing the best out of his subject. Whether that is by producing exceptional music videos or finding the most interesting angle for an interview, it makes for fantastic viewing for anyone with an interest in underground hip hop.

This DVD will be a testament to a musical scene on the up, made by one of the best chroniclers of music around today.
