Swurv Radio granted exclusive access to the private listening party for Big Boi from Outkast.
Multi-Platinum recording artist Big Boi welcomed a select group of bloggers and DJs to his Stankonia Studios for a listening party of new single, “In Da Souf.” The new single will feature appearances by Gucci and Killer Mike. Fans will also be surprised to know that the new album features unreleased audio from rapper Pimp C.
“In Da Souf” gives fans a chance to hear the true ATL sound that most ATLiens grew to love in the 90z. Most of the DJs received “In Da Souf” very well and expressed that the single would definitely be a banger. When asked about the video for the new single, Big Boi shared that the video will be shot at a private location in Los Angeles in the next few days.
The private party was hosted by the legendary Coalition DJs. The Coalition DJs are a group of powerful DJs known throughout the south. These DJS are responsible for rocking major clubs in the south and have gained a reputation for breaking records Jeezy, Future, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, and K Camp.
Unsigned artists across the world seek the attention of these top-ranking DJs.
This event was groundbreaking. For the first time in years, the organizers respected placed the attention primarily on the opinions of the club DJs and the audience. All of the DJs chosen were respected in the industry. Each DJ was given the opportunity to share their honest opinions about the new music, without backlash. Many people forget that the DJs were the original underground hit-makers.
The popularity of the Coalition DJs listening party has grown immensely. The event featured “heavy hitters” like Yo Gotti, Waka Flocka, and Boosie Badazz. After the song review, Boosie stayed around for interviews and photo ops with the Coalition DJs and local bloggers.
A listening party with the Coalition DJs is definitely an event that many unsigned artists could benefit from. Having some of the hottest DJs in the south to talk candidly with you about your music is priceless.
Thank You to the entire Coalition DJs team and Amy Hanks PR for the invite. Swurv Radio and #AndreTheBlogger definitely supports what you’re trying to do.
