As you might or might not have seen earlier on the blog, Devin The Dude is bringing his wide-eyed stoner raps to the Nectar Lounge tonight. But what you haven't heard--yet--is the synth-heavy hip-hop of local producer/emcee JC Flow. Developing his craft while playing football on scholarship for Pacific Lutheran University, Flow is equal parts lyricist and songwriter. His debut full-length, Vern Noun Vibe, was made up of three separate pockets: Verb, the lifestyle piece, Noun, the aggressive raps, and Vibe, the radio-friendly component. Tracks like "Eye On You" and "Drinks Up" sound like the polished jams you hear during a night out at the club--and chances are that might've been the case. Flow's cuts might not exactly vibe with The Dude's laid-back vibe, but they've got a hooky, melodic quality that's on par with the ones that end up on KUBE.
