Welcome to my glorious mess.

I’m changing my podcast location. I’m about to migrate to blip.

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, Atlanta, Atlanta Music, Audubon Society, Podcast by Dom Brady on June 26, 2009

They don’t have a limit like what podomatic has so I can continue my work there. Too expensive on podomatic for a broke Journalist. So, I’ll be taking my work to blip.tv and increasing the photo stuff to change the old/new podcast formats into slide shows. I’m going to get some of these reels of film developed next week, God willing, to facilitate this.

…In other news, I’m on the radio now. 1690 Voice of the Arts here in Atlanta. I’ll be hosting a show with fellow journalist Maurice Garland. We’ll explore all aspects of music. Right now we’re doing the pilot shows which will only be 15 minutes during airing with full interviews available in podcast form.

SMKA & Fadia Kader are our producers and DJ Mr. Mind of the Audubon Society is on the 1s &2s. Should be a very exciting project.

Kicking off a documentary video short project in the middle of next week and some documentary 35mm shooting as well for stills. Should be fun. Busy, busy, broke journalist at work.

Peace.

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.

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…

Check out my interview with her on Episode #009 of Analogue Atlanta: Powerful Impact.  She’s beautiful, talented and now she’s working with another beautiful and talented young lady.  She is Brittany Bosco.   Her sound ranges from operatic to neo-funk and experimental soul.  Spectrum, her aptly titled EP, is available for free on her myspace page.  Just talked a bit with Fadia Kader and she let me know that she’ll be working with Bosco helping her in the way she’s been helping Atlanta group  Proton over the past year and a half or so (I’m not certain of the timeline).   We’ll catch up with Proton in season 2 of Analogue Atlanta which kicks off in March.   Bosco has some wonderful songs on her free EP.   She also has a talented team around her with the likes of Atlanta-Based, formerly of South Carolina MC Danny!  Alex Goose  and many more.  With Fadia now behind her, the machine is going to really get rolling for Brittany.  I’m excited to see what 2009 brings for this new pairing.

As for me?  I’m bone tired.  I’m still working on Episode #018 of Analogue Atlanta.  There is so much audio to sift through on the Random Rabbit interview.  I’m still listening to tape trying to find an angle to take.   I should be ready to post it soon, though.  Until then?  Enjoy the sounds of Ms. Bosco live…

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!

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.

I won’t jinx it with a date, but I’ll post my interviews with writer Andisheh Nouree, Random Rabbit, Mr. Lucky, ATL Band The Goldest Atlanta-based promoter Dres Tha BEATnik and more are right around the corner. I’ll also have a trailer up from my Documentary project “Telling it like it T-I-is: Atlanta Hip Hop from ’79-’til”.

The Goldest were kind enough to give me some CD’s to give away so there will be some Atlanta Trivia in their episode. Stay Tuned!

One good thing about being sick & in bed is time to think…

Posted in Analogue Atlanta:, ATL, Atlanta, Atlanta Music, Podcast by Dom Brady on January 25, 2009

I’ve come up with some interesting ideas for the podcasts I’m working on in the near future.  Should be interesting.  Have you ever heard the old Moral Chicanery podcast I used to do with Nyerere?  Perhaps not.  Actually, it’s a good thing that you hadn’t.  While those podcasts had their moments, they just weren’t that good.  The new idea is based off of that principle but with some new bells and whistles.  It should be very funny, very fresh and I’m going to be very disappointed if I find out someone in doing what I have in mind already.    Upset wouldn’t even be a good word to describe how I’d feel, actually.  

 

Anyway, while I’m hear I might as well announce the last 14 or so guests of Analogue Atlanta after episode #17 is published:  Random Rabbit, Bem Joiner, Random Rabbit, No Face, Gringo Star,  Tendaberry, Melanie Stevens, PJ Morton, Yelawolf, Dj Tabone, Fewture, Fray Wall, Mr. Lucky  and Sky Hy.     Interest piqued?  I hope so.  Should be a lot of fun.   Can’t wait to share these conversations with ya’ll.  Next season should be even better.

Details soon come.

This episode was interesting in that it almost didn’t happen.  I’m sick as a dog. I’ve been ill since just before the Random Rabbit interview I conducted on Thursday. It’s been a long week. Melody Moezzi and her book War on Error: Real Stories of American Muslims was brought to my attention via NPR not even a year ago, I think. After hearing her on air and meaning to buy the book, I did what i always do: I quickly forgot about her and the book. Fast forward to the Creative Loafing Short fiction contest not long ago, and I see the book alongside Persepolis 2. I hadn’t known there was a sequel to Persepolis and as I was making my way over to the table to take a closer look at it: BAM! There was Melody’s book. It’s weird how things work out sometimes because after realizing that Melody actually lived here in Atlanta, I gave her a call the next day.

In this interview we talk about her inspiration, her artistic process and health issues that have presented Melody with a unique circumstance.

The Soulphonics & Ruby Velle is a weird story. As you may know, I’ve been friends with DJ Variable of the Audubon society for over a decade. His Audubon Society partner Mr. Mind is also a friend of mine, and through him I met Ruby Velle and learned about her music. If you think her voice is something, you should try out her chocolate chip cookies. It’s the stuff of magic.

After a few weeks of email tag, I finally was able to nail down an interview with the Soul Septet and I’ve got to tell you that it’s always a great time seeing them play live. Every time I’ve seen them play I’ve regretted not having my wife present because they make music that moves you to dance.

We chat about running a large band in Atlanta’s indie music scene and about their sound.

I’ll publish part of an interview I did with D.R.E.S tha Beatnik a few months ago for Art Nouveau Magazine and we’ll chat with Atlanta Creatives Project creator and photographer Neda Abghari.

Episode #16, of course, will feature: Melody Moezzi, The Soulphonics & Ruby Velle
