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.

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.
