Exclusive Interview: Sechion Talks “Mill Side,” ‘City Love Tour 2’ & More

With our live showcase The Plug almost a week away, it’s a great time to get familiar with one of the acts that will be performing, Sechion. The Lowell, MA representative might not be on your radar yet, but he’s an artist to keep your eye on.

Thanks to his hometown ode “Mill Side”and his own curated City Love Tour 2, he’s taking the right steps and building fans organically. With a great deal of support from his hometown, he’s looking to use some of that momentum and further insert himself into the Boston hip-hop community. There’s no doubt that he will do that on September 24th, when he hits the stage at Lily Pad in Cambridge, MA with Merk, Tashawn Taylor, and Hil Holla.

I recently sat down with Sechion at Mass Apparel and talked to him about “Mill Side,” his summer tour, building Lowell’s hip-hop scene, his upcoming project, and much more.

Exclusive Interview: Deon Chase Talks ‘Broken Details,’ Recording Process, SO91 & New EP

Last month, Deon Chase released a quality project in Broken Details. The 11 track release showcased the young artist’s sharp pen game and silky crooning, a combination that results in an easy on the ears listening experience.

I recently sat down with the Summer Of 91 representative at Mass Apparel to get some insight on the project. In our conversation, he discusses the recording process, singing, songs that mean the most to him, putting his life in his music, upcoming videos, and a follow-up EP.. In addition, he talks about working with  Avenue and learning from him. On the question of whether he feels overshadowed by The Chandelier View rapper, he compares his situation to TDE‘s Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar.
