DJ

DJ Platurn-Crumblin’ Erb (The Outkast Mix)-Mix w/ URB

PlatKast

DJ Platurn sais:

“Had a blast revisiting one of the most prolific Hip-Hop groups of all time. I was always a big fan, but there’s a unique perspective you acquire on a group when you dive into their catalog via piecing together a detailed DJ mix. Them ATL boys span the gamut of diversity in this rap and soul thing — claiming that they’re versatile is a severe understatement. The genius of Organized Noize couldn’t have been a better fit either. The marriage of music and voice with Andre, Big Boi, and that dirty dungeon they recorded in were the makings of some of the funkiest and soulful rap music to ever come out of the South, or all of rap music for that matter. I took it all over the place, as I tend to do, but I focused almost solely on tracks that Sir Luscious & Mr. Benjamin both appeared on, and as much variety as I could fit in between for that added Platurn effect. Crumble up some erb and lean back for this one.”

*Note: this is by no means an authoritative mix on the duo, simply my meager interpretation — there were even some joints that I couldn’t fit that my faves, unfortunately. I hope the attempt still does them justice.

LilDapCode

New music from Lil Dap, former member of the legendary Group Home along with the other half of the duo, Melachi the Nutcracker. Group Home came to prominence as members of the Gang Starr Foundation in the early 90’s. Lil’ Dap made his rhyming debut on Gang Starr’s classic Daily Operation on the song “I’m the Man”. Both members appeared on Gang Starr’s critically acclaimed effort Hard to Earn, on the tracks “Speak Ya Clout” and “Words from the Nutcracker”. In 1995, the group released its debut album, Livin’ Proof. The album was very well received and is entirely produced by DJ Premier. A second album, A Tear for the Ghetto was released in 1999.

Since then, little has been heard of the group. Lil’ Dap released a solo single, “Brooklyn Zone”, in 2001, and guested on several other releases. As of 2007, Lil’ Dap became an independent artist. Now Lil Dap is back with a 12” single on KingUnderground/World of Dusty Vinyl. It’s entirely produced by “The Man with the Golden Sound” Lewis Parker, and indeed it’s a golden sound. The record features 3 joints including a remix and instrumentals to all the songs.

Available on a 12″ single: 150/500 copies available on clear transparent vinyl. http://www.KingUnderground.com
