Regular readers of Southern Hospitality will be very familiar with the judicious tastemaking tastebuds of ATL’s DJ Burn One. He’s been on the music you’re hearing now before your favourite DJ felt obliged to play it. No joke. In fact, you can trace back the careers of the two most notable recently signed southern artists to collaborative projects with the man with the infectious DJ tag. Seriously, when we drop Yela or Pill in the clubs in London it’s with the Burn One blunt spark sound turned all the way up.
Don’t miss this interview he did recently with Hip Hop At Lunch. Burn reveals the reasoning behind his anti-seasonal release schedule and offers insight into the way he likes to discover artists to work with. Learn some from Burn One.
