Tufts alums Rob and Cal from Timeflies are at it again, this time devoting their weekly Timeflies Tuesday feature to a tribute for Steve Jobs:
This week, rather than our usual freestyle, we wanted to take the time to put something together that was more serious to show respect for an innovator who has been such a big part of our lives. … All of this was shot on an iPad 2 and edited using iMovie, recorded, mixed, and mastered on an iMac. The beat was made using samples from OSX and iOS – everything on a Tuesday.
The new mixtape by Tufts alumni and hip hop duo Timeflies, “The Scotch Tape,” made a strong debut on the iTunes charts yesterday, at one point reaching no. 8 on the iTunes pop album chart. You’ll have to take our word for it on that stat, since the ranking has since changed, but check out this screenshot of “The Scotch Tape” at no. 9 on the iTunes top albums chart yesterday.
It was also featured as one of iTunes’ “Pop Hits under $8,” among artists such as Adele, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
Also, the video for their new single, “Turn It Up,” already has more than 100,000 views on YouTube:
The future is looking very bright for Cal and Rob “Rez” Resnick, the musical masterminds of electro-pop-hip-hop-rap group Timeflies… Now with more than 10,000 Facebook fans—and 100 more joining every day—Cal and Rez, both 22, have mastered the fine art of social media, using Twitter to generate and perpetuate hype among thousands of followers, who eagerly await the release of Timeflies’ first album, The Scotch Tape, early next month.
