huh what

Every once in a while, I’ve gotta go into hibernation.  Just get away from the noise, the saturation, the bad vibes.  A cleansing, of sorts.  I’m not quite over my respite but I had to resurface to share this with y’all.


I won’t lie: I melt over a good hip hop love song.  A smooth beat, intimate lyrics and slick wordplay are the best ways to romance my heart.  “Land of Passion,” produced by Dublohskytzo, from Yamin Semali’s latest project Senior Dues, speaks to all these facets of  soul connectedness.  Produced by B.K. Jackson and Mike Robertson, the visuals are warm and inviting, showing Yamin chillin’ with his lady, sharing in her space, vibing to her vinyl collection.  Get into it below and pick up that Senior Dues here!


Make sure you “like” Audio Gumbo on Facebook to keep up!

Every Friday someone asks me, “what’s happ’nin’ this weekend??”  This will be the place for you to find out.  If you have an event you’d like to submit to be featured, email me with the subject “Event Submission.”  I’ll feature it, along with other events happening within the same time frame. If it’s particularly dope, I’ll feature a more detailed write-up of your event.

(Right now, most events featured will be in Atlanta, since that’s my base.  I’m open to events country and world-wide though!)


room for living remixes

Marian Mereba dropped the remixes to her EP Room For Living and it plays like a whole new album.  She enlists some very live producers to revamp the acoustic sounds of the original tracks.  Transformed into a more hip hop, electronic vibe, Mereba’s folksy vocals intermix perfectly with their new melodies.  Hit the stream below to listen until the download is available.  Download here!

Jack Preston ain’t playin’ with y’all!  If you’re not FOR the community, please believe he’s pulling your card.  Check out the visuals for “Replay” featuring appearances from The Dojo Collective, Yamin Semali and a very fie b-boy.


You can always count on Yamin Semali to bring freshness and innovation to his art.  His new video, for one of my favorite tracks off his project YAMIN, “Never Leave” is no exception to that freshness.  Directed by everybody’s favorite indie film creative W. Feagins Jr., the visuals for “Never Leave” play out as a fun, easygoing, reciprocal relationship between Yamin and his love, his MPC.  Yes, it’s an ode to his beat machine.  With the way this track flows and knocks, you can feel how much Yamin is feelin’ his MPC.  Check out the video below:


Cop that YAMIN as well!

AmDex and DT of Clan Destined, part of ATL’s finest, are back with the long-awaited video from their last year LP release Self-Titled.  While the very fly Stacy Epps comes through with melodies and rhymes, the Clan D duo keep their cool under the pressures of everyday livin’.

“Scream” is the joint you play after a day where your boss has used your brain as a paperweight, the gridlocked rush hour traffic incurs a $25 late pickup fee at the baby’s daycare, the bill collectors are calling at dinner time and you just received a text telling you to come into work an hour earlier.  You know, the type of blue-collar bullshit we adhere to on a day-to-day basis.  But no worries.  Let Clan D tell it, “Just let it out and scream!”  Or, you know, you could just go all Office Space on shit (not entirely recommended, though).
