Homegrown Hip-Hop: Collective Efforts, J Live, Dillon, DJ Synthesis
What are you getting into this weekend? If you’re free on Friday (Feb. 26) at 9 p.m., make a move over to Smith’s Olde Bar on Piedmont Ave. and check-out Collective Efforts for a fresh twist of some homegrown, underground Atlanta hip-hop.
This isn’t the stuff you hear on the radio. They have a golden-era sound that reflects a mix of legendary groups like The Roots, Goodie Mob and Little Brother.
According to their website, the group recently “added a backing band to the mix, bringing its musicianship to new levels by incorporating soul, rock, jazz and reggae influences. The band headlines this show in celebration of the release of its fourth full length, Freezing World, a semi-conceptual album about man’s struggle for survival during hard times. Their efforts will be joined by cohorts J Live, Dillon and DJ Synthesis.”
