This month marks the 20th anniversary of Souls of Mischief mindblowing debut album, the prophetically titled "'93 Til' Infinity". In celebration of the occasion, the Souls for the first time has handed over the exclusive acapellas to acclaimed producer Wally Clark of Gummy Soul to create a brand new project around. The result is a creative concept album that focuses on recreating a '93 mindstate of hip-hop production on Clark's behalf:
"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, they are too well known."
"'93 Still" is definitely something you'll want banging in your headphones for some time to come, especially as it works as the perfect appetizer for the official Souls of Mischief album with Adrian Younge that drops via Soul Temple Records later this year.
