Orange Mound

April 10, 2013

va – orange mound, a memphis rap mix by mark francis johnson (gauss pdf, 2013)

This is something special. Want to know why? “Orange Mound” compiles Memphis rap cassettes from the early nineties. And these are not what you expect. At all.  Philadelphia store-owner/blogger/writer/etc Mark Francis Johnson probably named this compilation after this neighbourhood, and delivers some disorienting soul food in the process.

Tape hiss, crude samples, tracks like experimental drones and tons of atmosphere – Orange Mound has all that, and then some. People into last year’s “Personal Space” compilation, lo-fi experiments and gritty electro, dig in!
