Making the Cover

Author: Tafari, Tuesday, August 9th, 2011 at 11:35 PM Mindspill

Here is the latest mix cover that I did for my friends at When discussing the concept for the cover with Buttress aKa The Queen of Freckles aKa Mistress of Soul aKa Butta at Soulbounce suggested that I take a play on the photo below. After some thought, I came up with a little pop art for something fun & playful. The backdrop theme of the mix was in celebration of Butta’s birthday and all of the soulhouse cuts were selected by her & mixed by our homeboy, Keyknow, one helluva mixologist. So in designing this image, I learned a few things 1) how women applied & blended make up 2) shit talkers always unite for great conversation 3) purple makes people happy. 4) saying "this bitch" makes me laugh. I would go into my points for the context but it’s a long story that needs to be told over cocktails… You can check out the new Soulbounce, “Like Butta Vol. 1" here. Oh, yeah, it’s a hot! Mindspill
