Life in Technicolor

Atlanta in the 90s, for me, was skating on Saturday nights at Golden Glide to bass-heavy Southern sounds, participating in Bankhead Bounce dance-offs, watching American Rap Makers (RIP to Arnell Starr) and Planet Rocks late at night and strolling through South DeKalb Mall, debating on whether or not I should get my name airbrushed on a shirt or twisted up on a gold wire chain.

Outside of Miami, Atlanta was where bass music thumped the hardest.  90s ATL influenced many, including singer/songwriter Spree Wilson and production team The Flush, most evident by this dope ass EP these Southern gents dropped entitled Life in Technicolor Vol. 1.  If you know anything about Atlanta Bass Music, you know that fun is the epicenter of it all.  It’s about getting your folk together and having a good time.  This EP brings that vibe back.  With appearances from Big K.R.I.T. and A-Town legend DJ Jelly, you already know it’s gonna be a party.

Oh, and get into that Miya Bailey original cover art!

Anybody that knows me, knows what a huge supporter I am of ATL’s own Outkast.  And if you don’t know…

Well, today, February 1, is the born day of 1/2 of the dynamic duo, Antwan Patton AKA the Son of Chico Dusty AKA Sir Luscious Leftfoot AKA Daddy Fat Sax AKA Francis the Savannah Chitlin’ Pimp but better known to most as Big Boi.  He and Andre have been instrumental in my love for hip hop, so it’s only right that Audio Gumbo show the man some homegrown love.

I found this dope ass mashup (“Afraid of the General” x Big Boi vs. The Black Keys from The Brothers of Chico Dusty) on Big’s Soundcloud, so you know it’s official.  Enjoy this shit!  Happy birthday, General Patton!
