Welcome to episode #5 of the 90s State of Mind podcast - a collaborative project between 4ever in Electric Dreams and Blue-in-Green:RADIO. This podcast sees Imran Mirza celebrate incredible albums from the 1990s alongside a variety of Blue-in-Green:RADIO presenters. This episode sees Imran and Rhonda from San Jose, California - and host of Ride The Vibe - delve into the sophomore album release by Digable Planets, 'Blowout Comb'.
Comprised of rappers Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler, Mariana "Ladybug Mecca" Vieira, and Craig "Doodlebug" Irving, 'Blowout Comb' was released in 1994 on Pendulum Records, just a year after their debut 'Reachin' (A New Refutation of Time and Space)' which garnered the trio a Grammy for their single 'Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)'
The album proved to be their final full-length effort as a collective despite the numerous tours they would subsequently unite for over the years.
Blue-in-Green:RADIO is a London-based online internet radio station which celebrates 21st century soul, jazz, funk, Latin & hip-hop music.
