Camp Lo still vibing to that Uptown Saturday Night

True story: I have had the Camp Lo classic track “Luchini (AKA This is It)” as my phone ringtone for as long as I can remember. It’s that timeless.

Hailing from the boogie-down Bronx, the stylish duo known as Camp Lo (Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede) created a certifiable underground hip-hop classic in 1997 with the underrated Uptown Saturday Night. The album’s slavish devotion to the soulful 1970s blaxploitation era, coupled with the duo’s imitable lyrical flow, made the project feel modern and retro all at the same time.

CBC Music’s got my full interview with Geechi Suede of Camp Lo. Didn’t manage to make it to the show this time out but I heard it was alright.
