[LATE ’90S HIP-HOP] Camp Lo’s Uptown Saturday Night is a minimal, ultra-stylish ’90s hip-hop masterpiece every bit as unique as more celebrated albums like A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders and Digable Planets’ Blowout Comb, but it’s rarely mentioned in the same breath. That’s likely because, where the aforementioned records seemed to signify a feel-good black renaissance, Camp Lo’s debut painted a grittier and less approachable picture of inner-city life—one whose playfully funky, Ski-produced beats were countered by flurries of near-unintelligible, vaguely European slang. The duo’s 2002 follow-up, Let’s Do It Again, veered from the debut’s marquee formula, and Camp Lo never fully recaptured the magic. A full 15 years after Uptown Saturday Night first hit, though, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede are hitting Portland—on a Saturday night, no less—to perform their greatest heist in its entirety. Hide your jewels.
