Warm Gun - "Nu Diamonds / Got Me Now" (feat. Emree Franklin) [Video]

If you've been following artists like Raz Simone or Sam Lachow - or a number of other Seattle-based artists - then you're most likely familiar with Brain "Warm Gun" Chinn. The multifaceted artist has become well respected for his ability to shine across the board in regards to the creation of music, whether he's producing, engineering, laying vocals or writing songs. Those familiar with Seattle's scene have no doubt seen Warm Gun's moniker attached to a track, record or video on numerous occasions.

Last year, Warm Gun let loose what is arguably his best collection of music to date, the 10-track Rare Candy. The project not only showcased the beautiful and original musical stylings of Chinn, it also put on full display his ability to craft a cohesive album that revealed intricate storytelling and well-thought out concepts. The fact it heavily featured Gun's Black Umbrella brethren certainly did not hurt Rare Candy either.

After giving the project plenty of time to resonate with listeners, Gun recently dropped off a set of visuals that simultaneously takes on two cuts off Rare Candy. 

According to Gun, the "Nu Diamonds" portion of the video - which initially lasts roughly 45 seconds - is intended to be a "swift kick in the teeth", representing the "mind in isolation, during the void of hopelessness." On the flip side, Gun's "Got Me Now" segment visualizes the "path towards hope", representative of one embracing the disorder. The Sam Roberts and Alan Danilo-directed video utilizes a television to link the two segments/tracks.

Be on the lookout for cameos from Raz, Lachow, Dave B, Romaro Francesca, and Emree Franklin, who is featured on "Got Me Now".

NIKO IS - "Meet Me in the Future" [prod. Thanks Joey]

NIKO IS has a new album on the way so take a moment to send your praises to whatever Higher Power you believe in.

And then prepare yourself for the chilluminated ride that is "Meet Me in the Future", because NIKO's latest is an absolute trip. From start to finish - as he's been doing for as long as he's been hitting your ears with his art - the best hair in the biz proves once again just how good with the energy he actually is.

You would be hard pressed to find an artist in any genre of music that consistently comes through with such a cool, confident and smooth delivery. The world traveling and Florida-based NIKO has an unmatched ability to fill a track with content that is seemingly all over the place but somehow presented in such a clear and distinguished manner.

Switching up languages throughout the song, NIKO IS demonstrates exactly what he means when he proclaims that vibes don't lie. As you listen, even if you don't know what he's saying, the e…

Bklyn Lo - "UNTLD" [prod. Juno Adonis] (Video)

Even when I'm not actively covering CT's hip-hop scene heavy as I once did, I do my best to keep my eyes and ears open for those artists who come through with the gems. I know for a fact there are a number of talented artists in this state who don't have a heavy buzz but are out there honing their craft and putting their heart into every single piece of art they create. 
I guess I can't speak in regards to everywhere, but something I've noticed in Connecticut is it's always the artists who are overly vocal and into hyping their releases up that never deliver a product that really stands out or meets the expectations they created for themselves. It's one thing to believe in yourself and be proactive in your self-promotion. But it's another to post how "you up next, 'boutta put CT on the map," while tagging your entire friends list...and then dropping straight basura. 
But, man...this guy Bklyn Lo is truly one of CT's best kept secrets.…

Ceschi - "Say No More" [prod. Factor Chandelier] (Video)

Last week, Ceschi liberated the first release off his upcoming Sad, Fat Luck album and today the Factor Chandelier-produced "Say No More" comes to life with the official visual treatment. Directed by Andy McAlpine, the video offers a wild ride that beautifully captures the overarching tone of the track itself.

Filmed in Amsterdam while Ceschi was wandering aimlessly "during a limbo stage in [his] life", "Say No More" utilizes brusque animation to showcase the chaotic frame of mind the New Haven-based artist was experiencing as a result of the many factors addressed throughout the record. With black and white images of Amsterdam's anatomy behind him, Ceschi is armed only with his guitar as he purges the unsettling turmoil from the depths of his being. While the realism is juxtaposed tumultuously with the animation, the viewer is able to experience the disturbing level of crossover that exists within our own lives. We're left with little choice but…
