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.

Take It Personal Podcast (Ep 8: Indie Hip-Hop Tribute)

Episode 8 is our Jansport (backpack) special. A tribute to the independent hip-hop movement that helped spawn labels like Fondle ‘Em, Hydra, Rawkus, Stones Throw, Def Jux and ABB records. A time, where the internet played a major role in the music. This era allowed people to DIY, giving them an outlet never had. This movement created dreams, jobs, life-long careers and of course, some amazing music too. Speaking of music, if we covered everything this episode would be 20 hours instead of 2. We picked obscure cuts all the way to classics heard from the late 90s to the early 00s. We got everybody from Mos Def, Company Flow, MF Doom, Murs, Planet Asia, J-Live, Juggaknots, Weatherman, Saukrates, Jigmastas, Cannibal Ox, L-Fudge, Godfather Don, All Natural, Non-Phixon, Cage, Latryx, Mr. Voodoo, K-Otix, and Vakill to name a few. You don’t want to miss this!

Finally, something JJ DOOM-related that doesn’t suck. They should have BBNG remix the whole album.

The Child Of Lov – Owl (featuring DOOM)

I don’t even know how to describe this… some sort of ritualistic shamanic wailing accompanied by some sort of ethnic Balkan instrument strumming and then DOOM raps about owls and somehow it actually works.

I completely forgot this particular blend even existed until I somehow randomly stumbled upon it grafted onto the actual video for the original version of the song. Good work all around here, prompting overwhelming nostalgia on multiple levels.
 

SteadyBloggin’ & Passion Of The Weiss Present – Smooth Operators: A 420 Tribute To Sade

I did this Sade-themed topically stoner-oriented mix for Passion Of The Weiss’ mix series. Included are some awesome rap songs sampling Sade, some chopped & screwed versions of Sade songs, and a few brilliant stony oddities that somehow combine the former with the latter to mind melting results. It all came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself, including the typically awesome cover by John Turner Jr. You should download it and listen to it while smoking like 6 scorpion shaped joints in a row.
 
There is a much more detailed description of all this on PoW, including the rationale for my selections and why certain things didn’t make the cut. You can read all that HERE. S/O and thanks to my girlfriend Jenna for helping a bit, and to John for the cover, and to Jeff for hosting it.
