1. AUDIO: Trackstar The DJ – “Out Of Darkness: The Best Of Organized Noize” (Free Download).

    Without a doubt, the talented Southern production team Organized Noize is one of the best to ever do it behind the boards. For decades, the masterminds behind the super sounds of OutKast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and Goodie M.O.B.’s Soul Food , have supplied that down South dopeness, but have they gotten the props they deserve? Top-rated rap blogs Devil’s Pie , The Smoking Section , 2DopeBoyz and mauricegarland.com don’t think so, that’s why they’ve come together to present this magnificent mix by Trackstar the DJ (and hosted by familiar voice of reason Big Rube) showcasing Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown’s tremendous producing talents. Take a second to thank them. Trackstar spins 50 glorious tracks from not only ‘Kast, Goodie and Killer Mike but lesser known Dungeon Family members Cool Breeze and Witchdoctor (as well as Parental Advisory and Society of Soul) to remind everyone of Organized’s powerful resume. But there’s also plenty of music from outside the closely knit fam’s sphere, including hits from TLC, Ludacris, UGK and even Curtis Mayfield.
