Helen Folasade Adu (Sade) is the love of my life! I remember vividly it was 1984 and Smooth Operator came out. I was 6 years old living in Atlanta...Read More
Most of my artwork is created during vampire hours; after sundown and before daylight. When I'm in painting mode my musical taste completely changes. No gangsta music; no trap music. I don't really know what genre it is. It's nothing that most people would expect me to listen too. Hell, most of them time I don't know the name of the artist or the song. Lol. So this is my attempt to track and report some of the dope music I vibe to. Its sonically heavy melodies with a good vibe. Check out my Sonic Playlist vol. 1

You would be surprised the amount of music that comes across our email. To be specific, bad music. And we are not ones to judge, but often times its painful trying to get through some peoples 3 minutes of creative expression. But it's a necessary process to find gems like this, from Skipp Whitman. This track is hypnotizing and the video draws you in and traps you. Pure Dopeness. S/O to Skipp for shooting us this email. Thank you sir. We're looking forward to hearing your future release "Unfinished Songs Vol.1"
Make sure you check Skip out on his platform. Peep out his newest project GoodNIGHT
I was going through some music we had received from artists who performed at the #CultureUniversityshow during the A3C Festival and Conference recently. I came across a song titled, LOM. At first, I laughed because it seems like everything is some kind of acronym now. But acronyms intrigue me. Therefore, it's a MUST that I find out what the letters mean. So I listened, and quickly found out that LOM is short for Lean On Me.
But we're not talking about a Bill Withers remake here. We're talking about drank 'n drugs (in a fun, light-hearted way, of course).
The beat was immediately familiar and the hook was just as instantly infectious. I liked it so much that I went looking for more. That's when I came across this video of Officialy Made going old school as hell: feeding us fresh flows over the homie's beat... manufactured straight from the lunchroom table. And that's actually their album's name, well Back To Da Cafeteria Table - to be exact. But if this video is any indication of what these guys bring to the "table" (pun intended), then the rap game has a couple of new faces to get excited about. And it should be obvious the city in which they rep.
Currently, Officialy Made has two songs in rotation on ABLRadio.com: LOM (Lean On Me) and Benjamin.

Aight, that's my time.

The 25th installment of the monthly mixtape series "DEEP DIGS"...
I really believe in dynamics. Even though I would never mix my mixtapes the same way I mix live, I believe in always changing the dynamics.... so your gonna hear a bunch of different styles, all mashed up for a journey that you can't capture live in the club...
The Deep Digs monthly mixtape is a complete night out, worked into an hour format… The night starts off relaxed, progresses into some real bounce and dance flavors, and ends up coming down on some chill movements…
This is a new monthly mixtape by Capeeton Mudfish, an Atlanta based dj. In 2011,2012, and 2013, Mudfish won Best Of Atlanta “Best Mixtape” in the ever popular Creative Loafing. Mudfish is know also for his production and dj work with many of Atlanta’s Hip-Hop underground.
