Hot off the heels of his FreeCember debut, Chris Conde has dropped a music video for Conde Digital, the title track off of the aforementioned Fake Four-released EP. The video is a black and white, up front and personal collage of stock footage overlayed and juxtaposed against Conde performance footage. The black and white aesthetic gives the whole thing a David Lynch-style feel, and thanks to the self-direction of Chris Conde and the editing of Scott Newman, the frentic call to action about finding personal freedom leaves images burned onto the brain. Definitely a strong video to represent a strong project, so leave it a like and a comment, give it a share, and keep supporting indie creators!

Over the past couple of years, Chris Conde has really honed in the defining aesthetic in all aspects that makes the music and live performances memorable. I’ve seen glimpses in different mediums, but everything really comes together perfectly in the recently released visual for Basic Rappers, a collaboration with Angel Marcloid of Fire-Toolz on the overall vision, Scott Newman on the performance footage, Oliv on makeup and Z the Barber on hair duty. This single (an old live show staple) and video could easily fit in as a pirate broadcast interrupting said basic rappers and warning them that mediocrity will not be tolerated in the culture from either side (performers or supporters). Plain and simple, Conde is laying down the gospel that MCs need to hear and heed. Dig the video, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others to do the same!
