MUSE Release New Single/Video “Dig Down”

posted by Oscar May 18, 2017

MUSE have returned today, and they’ve delivered their new single “Dig Down.” The track, which was co-produced by Mike Elizondo and Muse and mixed by Spike Stent, has anthemic vibes with quite the Industrial feel to it. The lyrics are inspiring as well, hitting themes of unity and survival.

The single was released with its accompanying music video, which personifies those same themes in an action-packed Sci-Fi mini-film that shows the lead character having to fight back against a “Big Brother” type being. The video was directed by Lance Drake and features Lauren Wasser.

Lead singer Matt Bellamy said in a press release:

 
When I was writing this song, I was looking to counteract the current negativity in the world and give inspiration, optimism and hope to people to fight for the causes they believe in; that as individuals we can choose to change the world if we want to.”

Recap: Pigeons & Planes’ No Ceilings Showcase ft. Kemba, Kaiydo, Michael Christmas, & Boogie

posted by Ellena Rodriguez April 26, 2017

On 4/25, the Pigeons & Planes show, No Ceilings made a pit stop in Chicago’s Bottom Lounge to showcase some dope artists.

To kickoff the night, the rap duo of Chris Crack and Vic Spencer took the stage. Now known as Chri$ Spencer, the two took the audience by surprise as they were not listed to perform. Nonetheless, they set the mood right as they performed a few of their own tracks along with a few songs off of their joint project titled Who The Fuck Is Chri$ Spencer?

Next one up was Kemba, formally known as YC The Cynic. The Bronx rapper stepped into the spotlight with his vintage mic and gave us a mellow and poetic start to his set. He performed his well-known Frank Drake-produced track titled “Already” among other joints that kept everyone vibin’ to thanks to his rhythmic bars. He closed his set with a more energetic track as he had everyone chanting the chorus “Do yo know who you fuckin’ with!?”

20 year old Orlando native Kaiydo followed and showcased himself as an upbeat, yet versatile artist. His set was nothing short of fun as the audience sang along to his catchy tracks like “Arcade” and, of course: “Fruitpunch.” The young rapper hasn’t been in the industry for long and shared with the audience that No Ceilings is actually his first tour. With that, I was very impressed with his performance as he showed he is one artist to look out for.

After Kaiydo came Michael Christmas to command the mic and he was nothing short of memorable. The Boston rapper gave so much love to Chicago as he took many moments to appreciate the city. He even gave a shoutout to Harold’s Chicken (aaayyy). With that being said, Mickey’s chemistry with the crowd was incredible and his presence had everyone smiling. He even went over his set limit yet no one was complaining. From “Michael Cera” to “Grab Her Hand,” Mickey was definitely a highlight of the night.

Last but not least, the highly-anticipated performer of the night, it was finally time for Boogie to close things out. He managed to keep the energy high as everyone sang and danced along to his tracks. From “Oh My” to “Nigg* Needs,” Boogie made a modestly-sized crowd feel like a crowd 3X the size that was actually there. He closed the night off right and made it a night to remember.
