from the album 3099https://automatic.bandcamp.com/album/3099
the alias and side project of AUTOMatic's emcee APRIME (born Darius
Windom) and serves as an introduction to the larger scope and broader
horizons of APRIME's songwriting abilities. By operating under the
moniker 3099, Windom is able to step outside of APRIME's typical hip-hop
sensibilities to favor a more funk, electronic, and R&B based
approach to music.
This project also serves as a launching point for APRIME's and DJ JDL
Rockwell's production venture known as Surrender Dorothee as 5 of the 6
tracks are produced by S.D. The production mixes live playing with drum
programming and the occasional usage of a sample.
When all is said and done, 3099 is a project that demos the many
different facets Windom brings to the music game, but it is in no way a
simple demo. 3099 is a complex project that walks the listener through a
multitude of concepts and emotions that everybody can relate to, and
that ability to make music people can relate to is what gives this side
project - just like all of the other music Windom has written in or
apart from AUTOMatic - it's charm.
