Obey A-Trak Mixtape - Dirty South Dance
Music is a huge influence in the design and overall aesthetic of OBEY Giant and OBEY Clothing since it's inception in 1989. At this years South By Southwest in Austin, OBEY released it's fourth mixtape installment featuring DJ A-Trak, 5 time DMC World Champion and currently Kanye Wests tour DJ. A-Trak was already familiar with OBEY's mixtape series, so when he told prolific street artist Shepard Fairey about a new project he had started, which was a collection of remixes, blending new electro tracks with crunk/rap acapellas and added production, it felt like the perfect fit.
I love house. I love rap. I love A-Trak's style.
This whole record is hot, hot, hot.... It's crazy the way he can mix some of the stuff together. Who would have ever thought to mix The New Young Pony Club w/ The Wolfpack? I love it!
