Even if you’re from Alaska, I’m sure you’ve got a good taste of the South’s sounds in your music repertoire. However, there’s a major distinction between listening to the music and truly experiencing the region they call the Dirt-ay, a place like none other on Earth. But if you’ve never personally made it South of the Mason-Dixon line, don’t worry, Aleon Craft and Nappy Roots are here to deliver a funky fresh description of A Different World. Combined with SMKA’s masterful and soulful beat (huge props to anyone who can place the vocal sample), Craft and Roots break down the best of living in such a unique place, from moonshine in mason jars to slow riding to finishing off the night with a plate of eggs and grits. If you liked this true taste of “country living”, be sure to keep an eye out for this (along with a a gang of other southern artists) on the upcoming Stargazing Soundtrack project, hosted by Mick Boogie & Terry Urban, due out late this summer via DJBooth.
