Headline News :: John Valley Premiers First Trailer For ‘Duncan’

2019 promises to be an exciting year for many creatives, myself included.  Exhibit A : John Valley and his debut feature film, Duncan.  After a successful crowdfunding campaign via Seed&SparkValley and crew shot the film, and going into festival season, it appears we may have something in the works that could potentially make some noise.  Working on this project was a blast, and I’m honored to be a part of it in any capacity.  Stay tuned to Duncan on your favorite form of social media, and be there when this one hits, because it feels like it’s going to hit big.

My man SniperShot can always be counted on for positive vibes, enriching lyrics, dope video ideas, and doper execution.  His latest magnum opus comes in the form of We Are One, an affirmation that, no matter what you’re going through or experiencing, you are not doing it alone in the greater scope of things.  The idea is transmitted via a clever visual editing trick that works extremely well.  Definitely check this one out, share it around, and like/comment it up!

Mind Melt :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice + Lo Phi Call On Jeffrey Garcia For ‘Crying Freeman’ Video

After a couple of low key releases the past couple of years, it’s nice to be doing things properly for 2019 once again.  In the wake of Lo Phi and myself collaborating on Uncanny Valley, I felt it was only proper that the album be given at least one music video to accompany it.  Enter mad genius Jeffrey Garcia, who got with me over the holidays (as well as his band of collaborators you can find in the projects at his Jeffy’s Playhouse YouTube channel) and created a visual blitz to match the sonic assault to the senses that is Crying Freeman.  I’m very happy with the quality of the video and the initial reception, and I’m hoping that the rest of you are impressed by the work that Jeffrey Garcia put in for this one.  If you dig it, share it around, leave it a like and a comment, and go check out the entire album on Bandcamp (and all other music services beginning roughly around January 15).

Big Noise :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice + Lo Phi Connect Once Again For ‘Uncanny Valley’

Lo Phi and I have been working on this one for a hot minute… after some final touches, finalizing of the track list, and a little love from IQ at FrownLand Records, we are proud to finally release Uncanny Valley.  This project is a celebration of distorted sounds and distorted thinking coming together to create harmonic resonance… Lo Phi kicks things into the red as he leaves his heart inside the beat machine, while I dug deep into all that’s been going on in my life the last few years to mine it for all of the wisdom, knowledge and wordplay that I could.  The album is now available to stream and download on Bandcamp, and will arrive everywhere else by mid-January.  Share it around, download it, and leave a few bucks if you can, but most importantly, enjoy!

2017 was shaping up to be the year for me.  I was coming off of a strong series of releases for about 8 years straight, and my docket for collaboration was starting to grow.  One of the ground floor collaborators was the homie Lo Phi, who has always been prolific in my eyes when it came to production.  What started as a follow-up EP to Manifest Stationover a period of 2 years, has shaped into a full-length project showing our collaborative growth despite both of us going through some of the most tumultuous periods of our lives.  I am proud to announce, finally, that our latest collaboration will be ready for release in January of 2019.  The project, Uncanny Valleyis full of wild production and deeply coded lyrics, as demonstrated by the lead single Just To Be Clear.  Stay tuned for this release, and many others, in 2019, as many of my former loose ends come to fruition.  Give the track a listen, a like, a comment, and share it around for prosperity in 2019!

Social Network :: ChurchCough Celebrates Collaboration With ‘ChurchCough & Friends’

artworks-000458499030-zhb7ku-t500x500

Like George Clinton once said, ‘the funk can not only move, it can remove’.  In my opinion, he meant removal in the sense of healing, and the healing power of music is undeniable.  With that in mind, I think of ChurchCough as both therapeutic and entertaining the way that they bask in positive outlooks and affirmations.  For ChurchCough & Friends, if it’s not obvious by the title, ConductHer and NonsenseSpence called in the help of some fellow like-minded artists to multiply the positive vibes.  I’m honored to have been a part of this project alongside TokenEddie Baty, and Lemur & Dream Puppy.  Check it out, share it around, and keep supporting your local creatives!
