Take It Personal (Slug of Atmosphere Interview)

This 2-part Slug interview featured on our Atmosphere tribute show can now be heard in its entirety. We delve into a different side of Sean Daley. We talk Al Franken, ironically, a day before the allegations came out. We talk critics, family, touring, his relationship with ANT outside of the tour bus and studio. We also talk about staying indie, Soundset, DJ Premier, Randy Moss and some crazy stories like the time Rick Rubin was courting them. You don’t want to miss this!

Over the past two decades, Atmosphere has been touring the globe, making music, making fans and one member, especially, making babies. Hailing outta Minneapolis, Slug and Ant aren’t just a group, they’re Minnesota Nice! The slept-on beatmaker and storyteller have accumulated copious amounts of success throughout the years, so it was time Take It Personal took you on a tribute trip down Atmosphere lane. We cover the classics, the obscure, fan favorites and even some collaborations. We promise you, there will never be another Atmosphere tribute quite like this one.

T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 24

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

We create these Sounds Like The 90s, to share with you new(er) tunes, that we feel represent that 90s hip-hop we love. Listen with an open mind and most importantly, support the artists featured on these Sounds Like The 90s if you like what you hear. 24 is a great number, my favorite number for obvious reasons, so it only made sense to incorporate my childhood idol Rickey Henderson on the cover. Props to dirt_dog for always blessing the artwork. And if you’re a fan of his work, you’ll be happy to know our Certified Dope Apparel is back for a limited time as well. Peace to to all those who continue to support Philaflava, Steady Bloggin and of course, T.R.O.Y.   –Jason Gloss

Outta nowhere comes a brand new Atmosphere song. We all have a better half, it’s just that some of them are absolutely insane for one week out of each month. All we want is some love and in return we just get the big piece of chicken. Peep the new joint and happy and healthy New Years to all of you. –Philaflava

New Interview: Slug (from Atmosphere)

Monday, March 16th, 2015

It’s been a Minnesota minute since we last chopped it up with our pal Sluggo. This weekend Atmosphere kicks-offs their Welcome To Florida tour, so it only made sense to mix it up once again as we talk music, touring, Obama and his dislike for Larry David. If you haven’t already checked out Southsiders, you can now stream the album on Spotify or cop on the Tunes. –Jason Gloss

 

Philaflava:  It seems like Atmopshere has this 3 year plan with each release since Seven’s Travels. You drop an album, tour, make music and boom, three years later we got another studio release. Are you still on that path?

 

Slug: Not sure. I can’t say that we’ve intentionally held on that structure. We always end up putting out extra music between album cycles. I think we just hand shit in and the label talks to itself about when it wants to release the music.

 

Philaflava: We’ll soon be coming up on a year (6/5/2014) since the Southsiders album dropped. Looking back, are you happy with the response the album received from both the critics and fans?

 

Slug: I’m genuinely happy with how Southsiders was received. The handful of friends that I absolutely needed to understand it, did understand it. I’ve been on this little red wagon long enough to embrace that we have no control over how strangers interpret our crap. One thing I did notice from reading the reviews was that the age of the critic was maybe-kinda-possibly a factor this time? It seemed like younger writers didn’t care for it, whereas some of the older writers at least tried to understand it and say something nice or constructive about it. I believe that’s par for the course.
