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


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.
