Must Watch: The Art Of Organized Noize

The masterminds behind some of the biggest hip hop and r&b songs in 90’s are being profiled in the new Netflix documentary The Art of Organized Noize. Organized Noize was responsible for creating the new and original sound that transformed a handful of Atlanta natives into international superstars. Their sound combines heavy funk and soul influences, which shocked the music industry because it was coming from the Dirty South. This music helped build the careers of some of your favorite artists, including newer artists like Future — for example.

Organize Noise consists of Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown, who are also linked with The Dungeon Family as they handle most of their production. The Dungeon Family is a collective of musical artist, such as Outkast, Goodie Mob, T-Mo, and Parental Advisory. The name, “dungeon” was derived from Rico Wade’s small studio basement that was always packed with 15 to 20 people.

They produced Grammy Award-winning music for Outkast, as well as hits like TLC’s Waterfalls, which took TLC from 1 million to 11 million. Organized Noize is also responsible for En Vogue’s “Can’t Let Go (Love)”, and Ludacris featuring Sleepy Brown “Saturday (Oooh! Oooh!)” hits.

My name is Nailah, but you can call me Neutral Jing. I am known for my vision, (what I like to call Neutral Vision). I have the ability to capture what you seek; the only side of you that you want your peers to see. I've always been passionate about photography, poetry and music. What most people do not know, is that I sing and write poetry. I am 22, and I love all types of music from RNB to Contemporary Gospel. I believe that any music that feels good, and sound fresh should be given as much of a chance as the music from your favorite artist.
