THE CORNER OF HEADLAND AND DELOWE

Throughout the 1990s, a new type of hip hop started bubbling up across the American South. Unlike its sample-driven cousins in New York and California, Southern hip hop dropped soulful keys, bluesy bass lines, and funky breaks played by live musicians on top of traditional drum machine programming. And although Houston and New Orleans helped lay the groundwork, the epicenter of the "Dirty South" was at the corner of Headland and Delowe, in the heart of Atlanta’s East Point neighborhood.

HEADLAND FLOW was created in collaboration with Divided Souls.

DISTINCTIVELY SOUTHERN

HEADLAND FLOW fuses thick grooves from traditional drum machines with live, funky breaks, R&B-flavored instrumentation, and gritty percussion. Fender bass, Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, and Les Paul guitars provide an authentic, analog vibe. Rhodes and Wurlitzer keyboards, flutes, and winds add melodic elements with atmospheric synths, harps, and strings for background texture. And painstaking recording and mixing methods give the sounds distinct Southern character.
