In this week’s Analogue Atlanta…well, I’m not sure. I know we’ll talk with ATL Drummer ALIen, I hope to sit down with DJ Black Bill Gates and it’s a toss up so far between Writer Mark Anthony Thomas and Award winning Indie Film Maker Matt Wolfe. I’m playing it by ear, folks. Why? Because I don’t get paid for this! Lol. This stuff costs! Production issues can froth problems to the surface.

The two gentlemen featured in this video by Fray of Visual Vinyl are ATL Drummer ALIen & ATL-Based Dj Wreckineyez. I interviewed DJ Wreckineyez in one of the two pilots of Analogue Atlanta.

If I have time, I’ll toss in an On-the-road piece I did with Stones Throw’s Mayer Hawthorne

Putting up Dukes…

Posted in dukes of daville by Dom Brady on December 22, 2008

Atlanta-Based Hip Hop/Soul duo Dukes of Da’Ville have a distinct sound grounded in their Hinesville, Georgia roots. With their pop-inflected soul tracks they look to take the music Industry by storm. Placements with a Tide commercial and a major label record deal with Capitol records are just two indicators of the potential these two have. In the 14th Episode of Analogue Atlanta we sit down with the guys and Atlanta Photographer Gudrun Scott.

Posted in Grits 'n Gravy mix by Dom Brady on December 18, 2008

…It looks like people are wanting to hear more of the Grits ‘n Gravy mixes I used to make which are basically comprised of whatever I’m listening to at the time, some ATL music and new music I find interesting.

…I’ll be honest. The Documentary I’m working on with my partner Kamal, the Analogue Atlanta podcast I do for VIMBY.com covering atlanta Arts and my writing for Art Nouveau magazine take a great deal of time out of my schedule. The biggest chunk of that time is spent trying to run down artists with stories that are compelling to bring to y’all each week.

But I tell you what. I’m going to start doing Grits ‘n Gravy again. Between all of them I’ve had like 3,000 downloads which is nothing to shrug at. There’ve been 1,115 downloaded from the Divshare group alone- which is only have of all the mixes the rest of which were hosted on my site. That’s kind of exciting because:

1. I’m not a DJ.
2. I don’t play most of these tracks all the way through. (I can’t get sued, y’all. I’m broke!)

Until then, here are some of the old mixes…

I’ll be at the Margaret Mitchell House just down peachtree a bit to hear Story Corps
founder and celebrated Radio Documentarian Dave Isay. I simply can’t miss that. Starts at 6:30 and as a Freelance Radio Journalist, it’s about as huge as it gets in terms of a live event.
