Live Direct :: Virgil Wolfe Captures Live Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Performance Of ‘Just To Be Clear’

This past weekend, I took part in The Wild Rumpus 48, a monthly event curated by Grid Squid Entertainment that is currently held at Kiva Lounge & Bar in San Marcos.  The homie Virgil Wolfe was in attendance, and after rocking a spur of the moment set, he was gracious enough to capture my performance of Just To Be Clear, the last single I’ve released from most recent collaborative effort with Lo PhiUncanny Valley.  I almost got through the whole thing, but a slight (hilarious) distraction in the audience caused me to take a freestyling detour to wrap things up.  Definitely happy this one was captured, however, as it’s been a while since I’ve seen myself on stage.

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!
