SEARCH FOR: CHASE PLATO

A Real Conversation with chase plato

One of my favorite artists to step on the scene this year has been none other than Detroit native, chase plato. I caught wind of this up and comer through my relationship with the Assemble Sound crew and was truly blown away by the contagious energy that was present in his music. After hearing songs like, “ICE CREAM MAN” and “STRANGER THAN FICTION”, I knew it was only right to dig deeper into the story of chase plato, which is why we’re here today. If you have no idea who chase is, before you bump his tracks, spend the next few minutes reading this real conversation with the promising talent. Enjoy! — Sam: Chase, How is life treating you right now? How’s your mental? Chase: Horrible. I’m traumatized. It’s very hard to spend time by myself. I’m afraid to watch movies or listen to music because I’m scared it will trigger me. I was told that this is the worst before the best time of my life. — Sam: Where are you from? What was that area like for you growing up? Chase: I’m from Detroit. I spent a lot of time in the suburbs and a lot of time …

Ice Cream Man – [Chase Plato]

One of my favorite things about learning about new artists is that I get to hear all of their influences, and the current generation of musicians typically has some out-of-the-box idols. With so many different styles of music over the decades, emcees have gotten away from the most obvious names and have cited some names that you wouldn’t expect, but once you know, you can hear slight parts of their music that has a similar sound as these artists. Chase Plato is someone I still don’t know much about considering I just found out about him a couple of months ago, but one thing I know about him is the fact that he is definitely on the come-up, and he is going to be a name you’re hearing everywhere in a matter of no time, especially if he keeps making songs that are as intoxicating as his latest release “Ice Cream Man”. Fully produced, written, and performed by Chase, this track pays homage to Pharrell in his earlier Neptunes days, and although the influence is pertinent, Chase makes this one his own with a bit of raspy attitude over the electric guitar melody that is juxtaposed by the smooth, serene …

RIP Kobe – [Chase Plato]

As I continue to pay closer attention to the rising hip-hop stars in the current day and age of the genre, I fall deeper and deeper into their lore, and whiterosemoxie is an artist who I simply can’t stop listening to. I love all the music he has brought to life over the past handful of years, but in all honesty, I don’t know too much about his industry moves or anything of that nature. I was super grateful when his manager hit me up and filled me in a bit more, letting me know that moxie is managed by Assemble Sound, so after finding this out, I was definitely intrigued to find out more about other artists under the Assemble Sound umbrella. That’s when I was told about Chase Plato, an 18-year-old artist/producer who is the imprint’s newest signee. I had no idea who he was or where he came from, but as soon as I read about how his influences range anywhere from Tyler, the Creator to 100 Gecs, I was instantly intrigued. It turns out that Chase is also from Detroit, and even though his sound is far more different than anything you might typically hear in …

The Ultimate Drake Album: A Twisted Love Story

FOREWORD In the history of the hip-hop industry, there has never been a more dominant artist than Aubrey “Drake” Graham. The 33 year-old superstar has undergone several re-inventions over the years, much to the delight of his ever-growing fanbase. As much as we have seen him progress, however, the substance in his music carries one glaring constant – heartbreak. It’s no secret that Drake is the master of the introspective love song, and as much as it probably pains him to have to go through experiences that inspire these records, the music has continued to serve as salvation for distraught fans everywhere.  At this point, we owe Drake for giving us all this incredible music at the expense of his own emotional distress. My first thought in paying homage was to curate a carefully-selected 100-song playlist of all his best music. Quickly, I realized that: 1) it’s an impossibly subjective task to narrow down his 100 “best” records, and 2) a playlist that deep is sure to oversaturate the respect we’re trying to pay in this instance. So I took a different approach. I thought to myself, ‘what would Drake appreciate the most from the perspective of a long-time fan? …
