There are plenty of artists in Chicago making creative, innovative music but Seer is proving to be one of the city’s most imaginative musicians. His genre-less style incorporates a blend of oldies, pop, hip hop and really any sound that catches his ear, all coming together in a cohesive, ear catching way that highlights Seer’s ability to craft excellent music. While he just dropped his debut tape Secret 2 My Strut only a short time ago, Seer has been making waves for a while now producing for Decent Gang, one of Chicago’s most talented up and coming collectives, showing that the rest of the city is paying attention as well. We got to ask him about his recent tape, his work with Decent Gang and where his distinctive style comes from. Read more below.
Don’t Sleep is back. Our feature on some of the best local talent in Chicago has always showcased talented musicians on the rise, but the five artists on this list are some of our favorites to date. With a range of interesting sounds, Don’t Sleep Pt. 6 should have some music for everyone’s taste. From a skilled harpist to some oldies style sounds to some classic hip hop music, there really is an eclectic mix of music coming from this group and we’re excited to introduce you to some more of Chicago’s hidden gems. Get in tune with Marko Stat$, Swill, Jose Franco, Yomi, and Seer below.
It seems like Casso Bandz is preparing for something big (maybe dropping Hell Era II soon?) because he’s been putting out a ton of music recently. I Got It is one of my favorite tracks from Casso and it really highlights his style and sound. The production is next level and Casso comes through with his laid back cadence as usual but the flow is a little more fast paced. The video is just as dope as the song is and it’s clear Casso is taking his craft seriously. Be on the lookout for Hell Era II which looks like it’s coming soon.
