Broken Robots’ Wild Runway Music Video: Monday Majesty

Earlier November Broken Robots blessed their fans with some new music and majestic visuals once again! The Chicago Indie Grunge band has been on a hot streak this year making big moves. Sprinkling their influence around their network of creatives, collaborating with up and coming artists like Trevor Pilz with BOOM BADA BAM BING, or producing for other artist Nora Marks. Their influence continuously catches the eye of Chicago SoundCheck, who brand Broken Robots an electro grunge band, going over their most recent release RUNAWAY. Their new single is paired with animated surreal visuals, like Tony Baker stomping through a city like Godzilla with a guitar, Lonnie Philips jammin’ in a spacheship, and Kat Baker stuck in the matrix, that can really catch your attention!

Broken robots get more in depth with the background of the track, as they would explain with Chicago Soundcheck, they are method writers, and produce with intention behind their creations. Creating powerful metaphors in relation to their life experiences and perspectives, similarly with their concept for BURN IT DOWN from their EP THE ESCAPE ARTIST. RUNAWAY comes as a 2 piece idea, beginning as a reference to their friend who disappeared with no evidence but security footage of a boarding train, as if chasing something. However an unresolved issue, the band shifted to a pairing metaphor to complete the song, directed at how a creative can lose themselves and others in the process of chasing that what may or may not be unattainable. To pause and give flowers to your loved ones while you can, a second look at whats really important.

Broken Robots handles gratitude and appreciation well themselves. As bonus to their fans they recently compiled a video of live footage from packed out events, as a thank you for support over 3 years with their song BAD HABBITS from their debut EP HOME IS NOT A PLACE. The band regularly credits each others talent and contributions within their team via social media as well. And with all that time they did it without a live drummer, till now! Anthony Friedli will surely be receiving his flowers too, being an addition to this ever evolving crew of artists.

HAYWARD On The Regular (Music Video)

Hayward is back with an update on some new visuals! Cruisin’ off his LP DIVINE INTERVENTION, released early in the year, he decides to revisit one of his hit singles! Hayward picks on REGULAR to pair with a music video and give the song even more life! The video is just a spacey as the beat itself, with old static television picture, as old video cassettes and popcorn lie around an old school box television and camcorder; adding a retro ambiance to the video, or nostalgia, for the 90’s kids. Hayward contemplates deeply in his lyrics about what it is to be REGULAR. Jumping on the beat with, “I been going through some shit, then again who isn’t. What would ya’ll do if you was put in my position, ain’t regular I was put here on a mission. Man you gotta make decisions.” Seemingly at odds with and ultimately accepting his divine purpose as opposed to a regular path; every artist or individual may bear this responsibility at one point or another in their creative journeys!

YOUNG XAV Defies Genres With Sophomore LP Dead By Dawn

The long anticipated LP DEAD BY DAWN by YOUNG XAV has been received and it is bigger than expected! In the works since the release of his debut LP AFTER DARK, it is an extension of the 1st, completing the journey we are living vicariously through YOUNG XAV. Being teased with singles like WAYS TO DIE, MANIA FREESTYLE and KISS KISS BANG BANG, and interviews with the Ever Evolved platform and others alike, foreshadowing concepts and genres. There is a bit of something for everyone in DEAD BY DAWN, leaving each listener with a piece of his life within every song!

Earlier in YOUNG XAV’s music journey he was more centered on hip hop styles in his production and his lyricism, dabbling in R&B whenever. Making a decision to explore other sounds following his MANIA FREESTYLE, with his style, it seemed like it was bound to happen. Leaning towards more instrumentals, YOUNG XAV fittingly dips into more rock influences, without abandoning hip hop altogether of course. He balances it smoothly back and forth throughout DEAD BY DAWN in between other styles, creating a diverse and highly entertaining LP, there is no dull moment, despite its length at 13th tracks!

Introducing us with its title track DEAD BY DAWN, with a 80’s dark, electro synth-pop, Stranger Things vibe, featuring Aanjoulique on vocals, creating a mystifying energy. YOUNG XAV enters firing with a prelude as the beat switches up: “If I should die tonight, best believe i lived my best one, if I should die tonight please reflect on all my words, if I should die tonight please my momma love her tell my father… tell my brother…” Opening strong he keeps the energy going with ONCE UPON A TIME, keeping up the heavy hip hop bass. He then switches it up and dials down to something different and personal!

Continuing with a jazzy selection, the LIFE & TIMES OF XAVIER ROBERT opens up with soothing horn instruments and grand piano, as if in a 1920’s speak easy, leading you into the happenings of YOUNG XAV’s mind in his verses. The production of this track in particular sets it apart from the rest of the album, but is not the exception to its diversity. The following title, PLAY PRETEND keeps a similar melancholic energy, as XAV sings over acoustic guitar. Just the introduction of the full LP shows you how far YOUNG XAV has come as he has grown as an artist since his debut LP in 2019 and earlier releases. Whether he continues on this path or not, we are forever grateful for the talent we have been able to experience through him and look forward see what YOUNG XAV has planned next!

Nothing In Fafa’s Way With Tree Of Flames: Monday Majesty

Fafa is back with another heart felt song, pairing the single with a new music video as well! Fafa is no stranger to deeply artistic music videos, noting tracks like GIVE ME A MIRACLE, THE SKY CRIES WITH ME and a collaborative single, ANTA AL BATAL. Her latest single TREE OF FLAMES is no exception, as Fafa is decorated with makeup, making her look like a cinematic fictional fairy. The video starts off in a calm, natural setting, with a sleepy fellow resting in the shade of a tree. Fafa appears as a unique soul, taken for granted, walking away from someone significant. Metaphorically, tree of flames is in reference to a higher power, and surrendering herself to this power, “Standing at the tree of flames” she “lets go of all her fears,” to go in search of what belongs! Beautifully expressed through amazing vocal range, Fafa continues to amaze!

CantBuyDeem ESSSE Always Keep A Whistle!: Monday Majesty

The League Champs are at it again with another music video for the fans. CantBuyDeem & ESSSE get together for a beat for LEAGUE CHAMPS VOL I, the two also got busy making a video, shot by Hayward, obviously. Performed live plenty of times in front of fans already, Cantbuydeem always introduces this song subtly, “if you know you know, what keep a whistle means…” which basically is to flex your 2nd amendment. Coming from Chicago, you would know that is an important piece of advice, and Cantbuydeem gives you all the reasons why in his verse; which all adds up to, good cautious living and self care attracts predators! “I’m smokin lemon haze and sippin lemonade and jamo. Slice of cucumber in my water I don’t fuck with Faygo. I won’t get boogie on you baby, I just cut the fake off...” Finishing off with “…you see me comin’ thru the exits, its about perspective. Treating the clown for disrespectin’, make that shit look sexy, if i got dead presidents in my wallet, slave masters in my pockets.” Essse finishes off the track in style, lyrically representing the hispanic community, his raw energy always keeping the track hype.

Mic Fort Brings The Danger! (Music Video)

Mic Fort is keeping up momentum with another new release that features a few Chicago artists. Mic has been keeping his fans occupied with a few hit singles this year following his sophomore LP PENUMBRA. Sittin on singles like WIFI DOWN, TRUST MYSELF & LIVING LIFE ft Dee-Jay, Mic Fort now gives us DANGER. Bringing back Dee-Jay, Deen Akbar and StankNasty who is hot off a debut EP release titled EPIC and a hit single with AMK and Johnny Innuendo, Gerald The Genius L. Mic Fort and StankNasty are not unfamiliar either, having worked together on a track before called LIBRA SCALE, a tribute to the respective astrological sign.

DANGER comes with a music video directed by AIR BORN FILMZ that looks like a session to brainstorm a new song, each artists going one by one showing off their bars. Starting out with a low transposed voice reporting for the chorus, “Danger Hip Hop Is Back.” Deen Akbar starts out the circle ominously positive and confident, “…Motivate, celebrate, the key to this whole function. Got my foot on they necks, and plenty verses ready, they nervous, might as well get the hearses ready.” Dee-Jay takes over next with a laid back flow, simultaneously quick with his words and syllables, showing off his lyrical talent!

StankNasty takes aim at mumble rappers and clout chasers, “I’m not one to be kind to mumbling prima donnas, thats on my momma. Clout chasin don’t get you commas, these pants saggin, braggin rappers ain’t shit but caca. Dropped on they heads when they was babies, goo-goo ga-ga.” Finally Mic Fort ends out the track and enters the scene with power, declaring, “Hips hops grim reaper. Had to steal their soldiers to turn em into believers. Ice cold from the freezer.” He takes aim at unoriginal, cookie-cutter artists that saturate the genre. “They givin up the game for fame, its strange they blame, they claim, T-pain said it best, ya’ll all sound the same, lack of originality…” Mic Fort’s closing line, “this is hip hop so beware the new era” can only be met with humble satisfaction, the future of hip hop is in good hands!

Mic Fort has been gaining a network of artists to work with, with his releases. DANGER in itself is packed with talent, just as his LP PENUMBRA was, getting his name known in different circles. He has been making the effort to get his name known in between his releases as well. Recently talking as a guest on Pillow Talk Podcast, he has also been making noise on stages at open mics and even Arizona’s Hip Hop Festival in mid September. Mic also plans to make an appearance at The Forge in Joliet, Il on the 30th to perform, so you can catch his era of hip hop live or just bump this on repeat here!
