First and foremost thanks to those of you that have been loyal to SOHIGHONLIFE since the beginning. Its been a while since I (or anyone else) has made a post on the site. I (Kid Cedek) am excited to announce that this will be changing!
As some of you may know I’ve been djing at Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta Village for going on almost 4 years now. Why do I still do it? Why is it the ONLY thing that I’ve done consistently since I practically moved to ATL exactly 5 years ago 6/1/2014? Its simple: FREEDOM. Freedom to do me. Freedom to play everything and anything I’d like to. If I were to play a bunch of classic R&B records at these BASS MUSIC shows people would probably look at me as if they saw a ghost or something (LOL). I consider Graveyard to be like a second home to me.
Throughout the years I’ve DJd at GY I’ve helped them bring in homies like DJ REAL JUICY from WHITEFOLKSGETCRUNK.COM to even had good friends like Andrew WK and Cherie Lily Come Thru. (Yeah, Crazy I know— But they are like fam since we did Vans Warped Tour Together back in 2010).You can definitely say I’ve had my fair share of awesome memories at the spot.
Lets rewind a bit tho. I want to take it back to a time when I first moved to ATL and didn’t know a single soul here. Two dudes were residents on every Friday night. Justin Bright and Mayhem. I would go there on Fridays and it was always CHURNT all the way up!!! These dudes would always have this place crackin tho for real! Their night was called "FILTHY & FAMOUS" and they put me on to people whom Im great friends w/ Today like UDACHI & so many More. Even Mondays man, ATL veteran Brian Parris was holding it down then strong. I miss that shit. I miss the camaraderie of the industry (or scene or whatever the hell you want to call it). This is a big reason I’m still there. I love those memories and I love creating new ones with all the talented homies that I know around atlanta and around the world.
This Friday is going to be special to me. As I’ve hit the 5 year mark as an ATL resident. As well as the 5 year mark of me pursuing a career in music and I’m going to celebrate my ass off. I’ve worked hard and as I gear up to bring some new blood and new events into ATL I’m going to work even harder. I hope to see some familiar faces this weekend as well as some new ones!
Here’s to a new beginning! And remember I’m always on 1st Friday. JACKMASTER (ATL) is on 2nd Fridays & Mark Graves is on 4th Fridays! More details on B2B which will be taking place third fridays coming very soon!
We are proud to see our guys Kid Cedek and Big Makk on this new compilation!
Check out their new tune “Bad Gyalz” ft. Dreggae below and support the entire release!
The smash hit winter compilation, "Moombahton Forever" waved the T&A Records flag at the pinnacle of moombahton; "The Grind" compilation hints at the next chapter in the label’s dance-floor eclecticism, combining uptempo club with dancehall reggae, techno with deep latin vibes, and trap with good taste.
Label owners Tittsworth and Ayres lead off the compilation with collaborations: Titts grabs Willy Joy for an insane uptempo tropical banger, while DJ Ayres and DJ Eleven (The Rub) bring in dancehall vocalist Natalie Storm for an electro bass romp. Moombahton stars Big Makk & Kid Cedek keep the dancehall vibes w/ “Bad Gyalz”, an oddball halftime 110 bpm trappy-moombahton-reggae hybrid track. ChooKy is a new producer hand picked by Dave Nada, and he smashes it with a peak-hour moombahton jam. Hawaii’s Sandwich Island Bass brings the zouk bass on LazyB (for the uninitiated, zouk bass is a 90 BPM tropical sub-genre of moombahton). Sabo (Moombahton Massive, Sol Selectas) combines percolating moombahton with 80s electro hip-hop vibes on “Strong Bass”, building up a real groover. Disgraceland (UK) takes it even deeper into moombahton-tech-house territory, with the epic 9 minute “My Mind Eye.” And Bro Safari & UFO! round things out with “Zombies,” which goes from lush electronic lullaby to 55 bpm IDM then jumps up to 110 bpm dance.
Schizophrenic on paper, “The Grind” is a surprisingly cohesive journey through electronic music as re-imagined by a roster of brilliant producers.
