I was told by a friend that I had to play a game on his website to download this new artist’s music. It intrigued me and I tried it out this morning. After attempting the game a few times, I dug deeper to find out about this artist, Raury, from East Atlanta. He’s 17. He’s individualistic. He appears to stand up as a voice of the younger generation that has grown up with world wide access to information.
Taken from Noisey interview: I’m not really here to fit into these other types of music. I’m here to break open my own lane. Because I see what’s going on – the predominantly club or hip-hop type sounds – but I know a whole circle, 30 or 50 kids, that would rather go and hit a bonfire than hit the club. That would rather go to the High Art Museum all day and go look at cool shit than get drunk and wasted. And then we can go to the club the next day. The kids nowadays are so open to everything else. Even at my high school, everybody knows who Bon Iver or King Krule or people like that are. These kids, they’re bored with the same stuff.
I always wanted to be that kind of artist where you can listen to it and think “thank god this person exists. Thank god you can listen to this kind of music now.” The kind of thing that you can just identify with it.

Dirty Revival is becoming notorious for their unique ability to excite and entertain their audience with everything from catchy original tunes to danceable ‘90s hip-hop and R&B to unforgettable ‘60s and ‘70s funk and soul. Dirty Revival delivers this diverse mix of genres with their own distinct style that’s dynamic, gritty and…well…dirty. The group performs with eight or more Portland musicians, complete with keys, horns and choreographed back-up singers. As the heart and soul of the group, Sarah Clarke, The Lady of DRC drives the dirty with arresting and passionate vocals that evoke the attitude and versatility of the timeless altos of yesterday’s soul. The members of Dirty Revival fused in a flurry of shows and rehearsals, and they kept growing until the recipe was just right.
In this clip, Dirty Revival does a live rendition of Problems in an unnamed studio.

I tracked the vocals with PropaneLv on his latest remix to Nick Minaj’s Pills and Potions. Propane is easy to work with in the studio and showed me a new style of recording that I think I will start implementing with other artists.
