Went to ZYDECO last night to check out ATMOSPHERE and RHYMESAYERS’ “THE FAMILY TOUR.”
BLUEPRINT really ended up being the artist that stood out to me among all the acts, though, and i spent every dollar i had buying all his vinyl – some really nicely pressed colored singles and a beautiful 2×12” picture disc set. if you are really in love with hip hop, you press vinyl, and so i appreciate that attention to detail a lot. talking with BLUEPRINT after the show, i came to find out that he’s from alabama, so i’m hoping we’ll get to see him back here soon. aside from really rocking the mic, he was rolling with a dj and a dude who played bass live and looked like he would have fit right in in MASTADON, so that visual dichotomy really appealed to me as well – i love when people bring disparate seeming elements together effectively and add really interesting layers to music that most people approach with pretty formulaic sensibilities. well, that’s all for today’s edition of the adventures of hip hop in Birmingham – keep seeking the beats, I’ll see you all soon.
