Audio Gumbo is a supporter and fan of The Remix on WRFG 89.3 FM, so it was an absolute honor to be asked to provide the soundtrack for the #BrittanyWhitneyTakeover segment from 12-2am.  Co-host Brittany brought me on to share some Audio Gumbo flava and feed her listeners some sonic goodness.  As always with AG, the goal is to expose, entertain and hip y’all to some dope, funky shit.  Listen to the exclusive playlist below and download the full episode of The Remix here!

First heard of Mara Hruby when Big K.R.I.T. posted a picture of the two of them chillin’ outside of Atlanta’s premiere recording studio, Tree Sound.  With the mention of Tree Sound came the peaked curiosity of what they may be creating together and, more importantly, who the young lady could be.  After doing a little research, I discovered From Her Eyes, the 7-track EP from the Oakland, Ca. native.  A beautiful surprise, Hruby transforms her favorite male artists’ popular songs into a work that could (almost) be claimed as her own.  From D’Angelo’s “Send It On” to Van Hunt’s “Character,” the young singer seemingly takes ownership of every lyric and remixed melody, creating tunes from her perspective.

She has a new EP, Archaic Rapture, set to be released March 18th.  Until then, get familiar with her by checking out her cover of Andre Benjamin’s “Take Off Your Cool.”




Big Boi ain’t tryna hear your woes over your Monday Blues.  He’s been dropping exclusive mashups every Monday for the last three weeks, with 6 remaining in his #MashupMondays series.  Re-engineering tracks from his album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi continues to prove that his lyrics can control a beat, no matter the genre.  “GossipZilla,” the third drop from the series, is a reimagined version of VLADR’sGossip,” an outstanding merge with the conceptual rock track “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult.  Check out the track after the cut and download it here.  The previous two mashups are down there too.


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!

Big Boi stopped by to bless DJ Greg Street with the fresh out the box exclusive of the latest track from his upcoming project Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors.  Produced by Organized Noise Big K.R.I.T., he and UGK (yes, the late Pimp C is on this thang) turn this into a true country rap tune.  The South is outchea!  General Patton’s new album is scheduled for November 13th.  FYI, this is a radio rip, but as soon as the dirty version is available, it’ll be here.

UPDATE: Big Boi released the CDQ version.  Here it go.

Big K.R.I.T. just dropped one of the most anticipated mixtapes of 2012.  Hell, probably one of the most anticipated albums, period.  Since his last release, Return of 4Eva, the southern producer and rapper has kept his name in many mouths.  He’s been producing gems for artists such as Smoke Dza, Freddie Gibbs, Ludacris, T.I. and 8Ball & MJG.  His official debut album, Live From the Underground is set to be released some time this year (come on now, Def Jam).  The man has been busy.  Through that extensively busy schedule, K.R.I.T. managed to produce, mix and arrange his own equally substantial mixtape, 4Eva N A Day.  I have to say, quite frankly, it is the shit.


Hell-fuckin’-yeah.  Big K.R.I.T. drops this joint from his upcoming mixtape 4Eva N A DayIt’s a nice inspirational tune backed by a smooth, jazz tempo.

 the 1st song i wanted 2 release from #4evaNaDay is called Boobie Miles. Its about over coming all the obstacles that block your dreams, the sacrifices that come with how hard you have to go to obtain your goal, giving your all no matter what the situation, the only difference between a winner N a loser is a winner plays until he wins – K.R.I.T.

Mixtape comes out on 2/20 3/5.  Can’t wait.
