Vincent Sebastian Wants To Free His Skin!: Monday Majesty

From face value you would see Vincent Sebastian as an innocent and upstanding character, and you may be right, but also his mind seems to tip toe the line of abstraction. His latest release FREE SKIN, with Dexter, and its music video illustrate this perfectly! The song starts out a bit cheeky, with an indie pop synth and some conceptual lyrics. You would think Vincent is going on about insecurities, and he is, but as a lizard! Music for Lizards, a shower idea, recorded at a home studio and mastered by Tony Baker of Broken Robots.

Suddenly switching gears to rock music, singing in unison with Dexter, and back to the retro vibes. Adding again to the abstract nature of the production; the two genres, indie synth pop and rock, sound like two different personalities, but it somehow works here, as if they actually belong together. The video itself has an abstract retro vibe, as Vincent sets himself and Dexter in an abandoned warehouse, with nothing but a chair and an old tiny TV; you get some kind of David Bowie energy with his aloofness, and suit. For the most part you get some aire of the 80’s coming to life again with this video and genre. From the beat, to the to the camera angles and visual edits, and even fashion and the whole minimal value that it holds, its a detailed creation not to be overlooked!

When Nothing Good Happens, Malo BRIGADE Steps In!

As the late great Martin Luther King Jr. would have explained at one point, “riots are the language of the unheard;” and it seems a growing number of Americans seem to connect with this message as leadership fails. Young artist Malo BRIGADE uses his voice to express his connection to that language. “NOTHING GOOD then we gon’ make it bad, make you crack. Make it worse, worse, than you every had,” the chorus itself communicates that frustration, that feeling that nothing else can be done, when power is increasingly being endowed to the greedy. In its accompanying video NOTHING GOOD, you even get the visual counterpart of these intense actions and emotions, represented by images of violence, riots, and rebellious action.

Malo BRIGADE splits his NOTHING GOOD music video like a 3 act play, either intentionally or not, it keeps you drawn in. At the intro you get civil rights commentary Chicago Black Panther Chairman Fred Hampton during riots regarding civility, layered over imagery of the same and recent riots that spread across the US since 2020, setting the tone for the song and video. Then you get the main body of the track, “Fight for the basic human rights, but you know the deny it. Ironic how bodies is lying, while they ass is lying,” chants Malo, clad in black among his brigade. Then the beat takes takes a pause, slows it down for an outro, bringing a whole different much darker energy, emphasis on the lyrics. Altogether a dope project in response to the social issues being focused on today, with more music on the way as he announces on social media! Follow at the links below.

Novatore; An Explorer of Experience: Artist of the Week

Demons to some, Angels to others; Pinheads quote echos at the intro, setting the tone for EMBRACE THE DARKNESS II: EXPLORERS OF EXPERIENCE. Novatore, with his masked up, demonish aura, in comparison to the Hellraiser, maybe a source of attraction, or avoidence, to curious eyes and ears. Regarding the quote, those who understand, or embrace, the darkness in life, and within themselves, may find comfort in Novatore music, like an angel. While others may scowl at this nature, as if a demon. The LP, a follow up to the first original EMBRACE THE DARKNESS, can be summed up in another popular Pinhead quote, “I am the King of Suffering; and with a hellbound heart I shall thrive in darkness.” However, diving into the music, there is much more to the art that appearences!

What summoned the wrath of Novatore on the mic? The first track, ANTISOCIAL, may give you a clue, it may have been darkness itself! “Violence and I connected at the first glance… dancing with the devil, never in the stands;” the track highlights Novatore’s dissociative behavior, that may have contributed to his harsh lyricism. Appropriately following up on the demonish intro dialogue with Hellraiser. In the next track SMOKE & MIRRORS, Novatore takes the spotlight off himself and exposes a dark side to the music industry, giving new artists a silver lining.

Who gives a fuck about the next man, quite comparing and focus on what you got, its all smoke and mirrors anyway, what you thought it was, its often what it’s not.” The lyrics reference music artists fake popularity with paid streams and bot followers. Seemingly making them idolistic, while In reality it is a different story. It a twist of perspectives, that in itself is a darkness to embrace; your perseverance will result in stronger foundation. “Rather have a thousand views over a million fakes, cause real fans accumulate in to the bills you make.”

Inviting Nems onto the fourth track MYTH, the two rock the beat with some braggadocios lyrics. It is as if they are creating myths and legends, with their focus and raw creativity. As Nems would exclaim, “You can’t stop us when this is Gods plan.” The title track can serve as somewhat of a short life summary, an audio bio for Novatore, as he realizes and accepts the conditions of life, helping him carve his own path, outlined clearly in the chorus. “I lost faith watching life turn to carcass. I went insane seeing faces turning into targets, I disappeared and didn’t leave a trace. I turned about face and now I embrace the darkness.”

What ever summoned Novatore onto the mic we can embrace, since it has gifted us with EMBRACE THE DARKNESS II: EXPLORERS OF EXPERIENCE. Featuring artists Nems, G-Mo Skee, Termanology, AM Early Morning, MOECYRUS & C-Lance, it is packing with talent. A dope project with deep message, blessing us with raw hip hop beats, unapologetic lyricism and talented artists to connect with. Can only expect more to come from the myth, the legend, the darkness, that is Novatore! Do not forget to catch the music video for MASK UP, follow him at links below!
