FOREVER I LOVE ATLANTA...HISTORY OF THE DUNGEON FAMILY MIXTAPE!

What's the word party people! I hope everyone's year is getting off to a great start,mine is for sure. I didn't realize until just a few weeks ago that I have been rocking in the A for 20 years. August 15th will make it 20 years to be exact. In celebration of that period,me alongside my team(Bobby Black,Dj Stefan,and www.thediggersunion.com)have cooked up a real nice treat for you guys.
"Forever. I. Love. Atlanta.(F.I.L.A.),the history of the Dungeon Family" takes you down the musical road that became the soundtrack to Atlanta. Without the Dungeon Family, its safe to say that the Atlanta sound would not have progressed as rapidly as it did. Consisting of Outkast,Goodie Mob,Society of Soul,Organized Noize,Backbone,Cool Breeze,and Ej the Witch doctor,the DF crew paved the way for all modern southern mc's.
Being that these brothers were the first mc's from Atlanta that I ever worked with,I deem it only right that I pay tribute to them first. No other group of mc's from the south has balanced the fine line of raw street lyrics and social commentary.
Even after being around them from day one,I still find gems in there lyrics. With no further ado,please enjoy the "League of elite mc's"...THE DUNGEON FAMILY...download and enjoy!

CHRIS READ...80'S MIX

Bridging the gap between the disco rap of the early 80s and the early sample based hip hop of the mid to late 80s (featured on the two mixes we put together for Classic Material Edition #1) is a rich groove of drum machine led rap tracks characterised by the raw stripped down sound of bass heavy 808 kicks and snappy hand claps. But somewhere else in the melting pot of music released in that same era is the unlikely blend of fast paced electronic beats with dancefloor sensibilities, funk, rap and leftfield European electronica that formed the electro scene of the day.
Whilst the sub-genres are plentiful, this mix doesn’t concentrate too heavily on any one of them; West Coast dancefloor cuts from the likes of Egyptian Lover rub shoulders with European pioneers Kraftwerk and East Coast electro rap and electro funk. As with all the Classic Material mixes, classic cuts stand alongside the rare and lesser heard. Originally issued as a bonus track on the Classic Material Edition #1 CD, we’re pleased to make this mix available online in association with Spine Magazine.

NIGEL SYLVESTER X STEVIE WILLIAMS




It has been said that if an immovable object collided with an unstoppable force, there would be an endless transfer of energy. The same theory could be applied to pro-BMX rider Nigel Sylvester and pro-skateboarder Stevie Williams – two of action sports’ most influential athletes. In the summer of 2011 the duo will join forces to create THE TAKEOVER TOUR, bringing together the the top talent in skate and BMX for a cross-discipline, traveling event that has yet to be seen in the sport.

INFLUENCERS::STEVE STOUTE


INFLUENCERS in-depth Series / STEVE STOUTE from R+I creative on Vimeo.



Last year saw the release of a short documentary titled INFLUENCERS: How Trends & Creativity Become Contagious. The work highlighted the whole notion of trends and how they gain traction and eventually come to integrate themselves into the very fabric of everyday society. The movement has none gone more in-depth as Steve Stoute becomes the first to speak in a greater light. As CEO and founder of brand management firm Translation, he has provided guidance for many icons such as Jay-Z, Gwen Stefani, LeBron James and Justin Timberlake among others. The concept of artists and brands as successful collaborators is a central theme to his video.

AL LINDSTROM X DAN CHARNAS...THE BIG PAYBACK INTERVIEW





For those of you who don’t know, get familiar with Dan Charnas. He has a long history in the entertainment business, but he recently published one of the greatest books on hip-hop of all time. His book is called The Big Payback: A History of the Business of Hip-Hop, and it covers all of the important business dealings that spanned the last 30+ years. It was an honor to be able to sit down with this man for this interview.
In Part 1 of our interview, we discuss: how Dan got the idea to create The Big Payback, and why hip-hop is so obsessed with the business (unlike other genres). Make sure to check back next week for Part 2.
