B.o.B Teams up with ALIen

New Season starts MONDAY!!! WEDNESDAY!!! I have a lovely new co-host that will be joining me in the 2nd half of the season. I’ve been working on tweaking the show including more photography to embed in the podcast meta data, etc. Of course the photography won’t apply to older interviews but starting with the 2nd half of Season II we should have some great material for y’all. I can’t wait to share it!!!!

I’m bored, honestly.

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Podcast by Dom Brady on March 5, 2009

Analogue Atlanta is boring me right now. I need to find a new format for it. The interviews are insightful more often than not, the guests are great. But it needs something. The last 3 episodes are still going down, though. I’ve had a few technical and emotional setbacks. Hey, I’m human.  During the off season, I think, I’ll figure out some new concepts.  We’ll see.  It’s been fun up until this point where I’ve become less enamored with the work itself. 

I am, however,  really excited about my on going Video Documentary project “Telling it like it T-I- is: Atlanta Hip Hop Culture from ’79 ’til”. The information we’ve come across about Atlanta MC, DJ, Graf and B-Boy history is fantastic. I’m blown away.

Even more exciting for me are “My year on MARTA” and “Ride & Whistle, Atlanta”. Those are combo Photo/Radio docs I’m starting this summer that I’ll get into more as the project(s) develop. My Canon AE-1 and extras should be here Friday, God willing. I’ve also set up an analog recording station in my office for a warmer sound I think these two projects will need a analog vibe to them. Building out my darkroom as I blog. Best, Dom

Analogue Atlanta #19 will feature College Park MC Stanza

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Free Mp3, New Music, Podcast by Dom Brady on February 14, 2009

I know y’all are having a hard time waiting for that.  He’ll be joined in that episode with Atlanta bands The Goldest and Mr. Lucky.   It’s also got to be painful to  wait on episode #18 of Analogue Atlanta  for that matter.   Soon come, people.   I’m not going to promise a publish date but I’d be shocked if it wasn’t up by Tuesday.   This might hold you over, though.  Enjoy this single or download the Lyrical Lovers EP from Stanza.

Mike Zarin interview is in the can…

Posted in ATL, Atlanta Music, Podcast by Dom Brady on February 13, 2009

Interview with DJ Mike Zarin & Steve of Beatlab went over well today. That means that Part II of “Our House” on Analogue Atlanta is nearly complete. I’ll just have to add some elements and edit the tape. Tonight, God willing, I’ll air episode #18 of Analogue Atlanta. It looks like this will feature Mudfish, Andisheh Nouraee and Shannon McCollum. Should be a great episode. I have a gig tonight so it could be tight, but we’ll see. If anything it’ll be up by Monday evening. I’m taking a nap, folks. Long, long day ahead of me and after a night of moving furniture until around 3am and waking at 8 to drive my wife to work, I’m tired. I’ll catch y’all soon. Hope fully I’ll have a new episode of Analogue Atlanta ready then.

Until next time enjoy this mix from Mike Zarin:

Meeting with the Atlanta Citizen Journalism project today…

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Atlanta Music, Podcast by Dom Brady on February 12, 2009


We’re going to discuss solutions for getting their web presence up and running.  Been a busy, busy week.  My wife is also sick so I’ve been tending to her as much as she’ll let me.   She’s a feisty woman, my wife.   We did, however, manage to make it out to the Poor People’s day march and protest at the capitol in Downtown Atlanta.   Great energy.   Great, great energy.  I had fun, Sam looked like she was going to die.   So we only stayed long enough to capture an interview with Fredo of Project South and take a few flicks. Fredo has ideas to partner with Artists organizations like WonderRoot, Campus Artists and Musicians around the City of Atlanta (Emory, CAU, Morehouse, Ga Tech, SCAD, Creative Circus, Portfolio Center, Spelman, Agnes Scott, Mercer, Georgia Perimeter College, Oglethorpe, Atlanta Metro, etc…)as well to partner for social change.  We’ll get into that more next season on Analogue Atlanta.   Tonight I meet with Jeanette Foreman (formerly of People TV) and some tech people to see if we can’t help bring Atlanta Progressive agendas into the 21st century in a big way. 

 

Early on Friday I interview with Mike Zarin of Connect ATL for part II of “Our House”, my mini-series on Analogue Atlanta about Atlanta’s house music scene.  He’s going to try to keep us up to date with what’s RIGHT NOW in Atlanta’s House scene which has seen a bit of a resurgence since Part I.   With any luck I’ll get a podcast uploaded before I go to a gig Friday night.  Busy, busy, busy.

  Had a great talk with Shannon McCollum

Tuesday night about his work, his craft and his involvement in the Atlanta Hip Hop scene.   We talked about his being from the West End of Atlanta, the SWATs, his early work with Organized Noise: Outkast, Rico Wade, Sleepy Brown, GooDie MoB…

We also delved into his relationship with Lil Jon and about being a first hand witness to the resurgence of Hip Hop in Atlanta.  

I’ve reshuffled the Podcast lineup.  I think this needs to go with Andisheh’s spot.  I’ll put Random Rabbit in a later interview.  I’ll be heading out to Athens tonight to catch them live and I think some live audio is needed for that piece.  It’s really hard to explain what they do without it. 

Still have the Clutch Magazine interview, The Goldest, Mr. Lucky,  Stanza, Fewture and Part Two of “Our House” this time with Mike Zarin , Dj Variable and DJ Tabone.   I’ve been busy, folks.   Busy on twitter, yes but also busy working on editing video and out in the streets doing interviews.   I need a team.  lol.  This is a great deal of work.  But I love it.   Until next time,  peace…

Today I head out to East Point to interview Shannon Mccollum

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Podcast by Dom Brady on February 10, 2009

In the center, Brian Knott of A3C, Atlanta

Had a few setbacks with prior interviews. Finally catch up with him today. Tommorow? Random Rabbit in Athens to catch their show and some audio for their piece on Analogue Atlanta. I also have to catch up to talk about the Youth Media project/ Citizen Journalism piece with project south coordinator Fredo. Hopefully I catch up with Brian Knott about A3C developments for 2009 as well. Busy day tomorrow.

New stuff…

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Podcast by Dom Brady on February 6, 2009

Analogue Atlanta ran into some snags this week mostly centered around my personal commitment over-extension and running out of server space on Podomatic. If you follow my twitter, you know I’ve been ODing on coffee staying up looking for affordable solutions, editing, compressing, etc. I haven’t had the energy to complete one episode let alone two. Saturday will be dedicated to uploading Analogue Atlanta #18 featuring Atlanta-Based Journalist/Author Andisheh Nouraee, Producer Mudfish and Electronic music ensemble Random Rabbit. With any luck, I’ll be able to post #19 as well which includes my interview with an Eastside denizen who happens to be Clutch Magazine’s Owner/Editor, Atlanta-Based MC Senor Kaos and Atlanta Funk band Mr. Lucky tomorrow as well. I’m not going to promise anything except give-aways for those able to answer questions I’ll embed in the meta data.

Extra Analogue #3 will be up tonight, God willing. I’ll finally post the interview with Stone’s Throw recording artist Mayer Hawthorne & my interview with Crush + Lovely Creative Director Nathan Heleine. Crush + Lovely along with Deltree have brought an interesting project to the internet and the world: Fifty people one question. We’ll talk about what sparked the project and about his craft and other projects his boutique is involved in.

Update on a past show. Remember the Highschool B-Ball coach?

In Analogue Atlanta  Episode No. 3  I talked to  Atlanta Hip Hop Artist Voo Da Teach.   If you live in Atlanta, you’ve never heard of him and that’s by his design.  Why? He’s the Head Coach at a National powerhouse Men’s Basketball program and because of this he’s been hesitant about performing in Atlanta.    During the episode he  stated that he was going to begin performing in Atlanta in the near future.  Well, that hasn’t happened yet but good news about his team: they’re 20-1 this season.  Not too shabby of a record, huh?   When you take into account that his squad has played both State and Nationally ranked teams this year his team’s record is even more impressive.   Still hiding in the shadows, Voo Da Teach plans to perform out of state again this year with his crew Scribe Tribe Syndicate.   His conservative community might not be ready for a Hip Hop basketball coach quite yet.  He’ll be scheduling Findlay Prep of  the Extra Analogue Story about  Photographer and Documentary Film Creator Donnie Seals ( Episode #2) next year. 

 

 

I’m in my studio editing video for my documentary and THINKING about  which Analogue Atlanta pieces to put together for #18, which I promised would be up like 4 days ago.  OOPS!  I don’t know why I put that pressure on myself.  It will be ready when it’s ready. 

I’m not getting paid, y’all!

Looks like an Analogue Atlanta Alumnus needs our help…

I talk with Atlanta Creatives Project  Founder and curator Neda Abghari  about what moved her to start the organization and we also delve into the state of the Atlanta arts community as well.   I caught up with B-boy  Quic, of the Funklordz , Zapper  (HBO crew) and  Alpha Trion to find out about Atlanta Breakdancing History from the early ’80s to the present  day. It’s an interesting look at how Breakdancing was born, nearly died and came back to life in an unusual way here in the city of Atlanta.    The B-boy piece is part of a larger Documentary celebrating 30 years of Atlanta Hip Hop from ’79-’09 we’re tentatively  calling Telling it like it T-I-is: Atlanta Hip Hop from ’79-til, which is a collaboration between myself here at Abenghorn Media Productions (A.M.P) and my good friend Kamal Secret at Black Static Films.  Look for trailers and video tidbits from us in the near future on the project. 

For more on Atlanta Breakdancing culture check:

Finally, I talk with Atlanta soul singer PJ Morton  .   We have a conversation about being an underground solo artist while writing for and performing with artists signed to major labels.  We also get into his new major label deal, his influences and his upcoming projects working with Music Soulchild, A.R. Rahman and more.

Atlanta Original B-Boy "Zapper" of H.B.O crew

Until then, here’s a track from one of Atlanta’s first Hip Hop records ever released:

Danny Renee & The Charisma Crew- Space Rap (1980)

I’m writing the first of the podcasts right now. It’s a bit of a monster with 5 interviews included and a great story line I’m trying to weave about Atlanta Breakdancing going back to 1983. I’ve been listening to tape all day and frankly I’m worn out. Time for a nap. When I wake up, I’ll voice the script write into the transcript I’ve already transposed and then get to mixing. The second episode I’m airing tonight, God willing, has a great deal of audio editing/sweetening that needs to be done but other than that it’s pretty cut and dry.

I’ll see y’all later tonight. Then it’s on to the Free-For-All party at Lenny’s ’round the witching hour.  I’ll have some treats embedded into Episode 17 and we’ll be giving away CD’s as well as VIMBY gear in Episode 18.
