The Pacific North West has always been an area that music takes a bit of a different tone. With grey, dreary days in beautiful landscapes it offers artists a different perspective to create music from. Today we have a song from a brand new group called The Cyanide Syndicate that is made up of seasoned veterans out of Seattle that slaps unquestionably. The supergroup is made of emcees Nacho Picasso and Key Nyata, with production coming from Keyboard Kid. All 3 have worked together and supported each other over the past decade but have joined forces to rep their city in a whole new way. Their debut comes with their brand new single ” The Blueprint”, a bouncy yet gritty track that provides nothing but bars for its two and a half minute duration. With additional production coming from one of Seattle’s most prolific producers Sango, the trio are off to a hot start on the next chapter of their careers.
The Cyanide Syndicate also dropped some wild visuals to accompany the song. Personally, I love it when artists weave a story of any kind into their videos as it allows them to stand out and not simply blend in with the plethora of music videos being released on a weekly basis. The music video follows The Cyanide Syndicate on a mission to acquire a dangerous briefcase. What ensues is something straight out of a Sci-Fi Horror Epic. The duo has incredible chemistry as they go verse for verse, their relationship shines all throughout the adventure they embark on in the video. With all artists involved having solid catalogs under them already, this new group comes with a chance to completely relaunch themselves and introduce the world to the type of artists Seattle produces.
