Souls Of Mischief & Gummy Soul – 93 Still (Mixtape)
With permission (and some acapellas) from the heralded Oakland collective Souls Of Mischief (on tour now), Gummy Soul’s Wally Clark was able to re-craft his own spin on the famed 1993 Jive Records album—93 Still. The original (read: classic) released 20 years ago this month.
In a statement, Wally said, “I wanted to take all of the records that people used back then, and create new compositions using the same techniques they were using – such as filtered bass-lines, classic drum breaks, echo-y horns – to make an album that sounds like it could have been released in 1993,” says Clark. “It was an amazing exercise trying to capture the essence of a sacred time in Hip-Hop. It also allowed me to playfully use samples that are normally deemed off-limits, because they are too well known.”
Truth be told, there is not a Hip-Hop album I have listened to more in 2013 than 93 ‘Til Infinity, so this hits the mark for this Head. More on that later…
If you dig it, it’s available for “Name-Your-Price” at Bandcamp too.
