NOLAN Releases New Album “TALK SOON” & Drops New Video “LAH”

With the release of TALK SOON, Detroit artist NOLAN (a/k/a Nolan The Ninja) is finally trusting instincts. He has a renewed focus on taking full artistic liberties and believing in his art. And now that he’s grown and proudly doing what he truly feels, we’re getting the real NOLAN on TALK SOON, a sonically vivid project that pairs banging minimalist beats with some of his sharpest raps to date.

As for the lo-fi, boom-bap-leaning music NOLAN released previously, don’t worry, because the “ninja death” doesn’t mean no more hip-hop. “That’s gonna be with me forever. I can do that sound with two hands tied behind my back,” he says with a laugh. “But NOLAN is gonna give you more, stuff that the ninja couldn’t. That’s why TALK SOON is special!”

Another favorite of NOLAN’s is “LAH,” a fuzzy, laid-back slapper that he’s bringing to life in a new video with director DDIDDYDOTMPEG. Check out the visuals here where NOLAN enjoys a recent trip out to L.A. As NOLAN himself says, “I name-dropped Kobe & Staples Center in the raps so it was only right I headed West.”

Head over to your preferred digital retailer or streaming platform to support TALK SOON, available now through NOLAN’s SPORT CAST imprint. The 14 track LP is due out soon on limited purple vinyl and cassette.

Deca – “Clay Pigeons” (Video)

Deca’s incredible artistry is on full display with his new video for “Clay Pigeons,” a visually stimulating affair full of brilliant stop-motion imagery that, like the track itself, stems from his creative imagination. Beyond its captivating imagery, the video offers a stunning look into so many aspects of our daily lives, including the oppressive weight of capitalism. And Deca’s right there to explain it both lyrically and visually, with the two sides often matching up to represent his rhymes on the screen. Check out the visuals and head over to your preferred digital retailer or streaming platform to support the track. Deca’s new album, Snakes and Birds, is due out next Friday, Oct. 23 through his own Beulah Records label. The 12 track LP is available now for pre-order via Bandcamp with vinyl copies set to ship out by Jan. 01.
