Souls Of Mischief & Gummy Soul – 93 Still (Mixtape)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

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.
