Back House Music was founded by D.Callens and Yo Debleau, two Birmingham, Al natives. The name Back House is derived from Yo Debleau's grandmother's home, where she had a smaller house behind the main house. Back in slavery times, this was the slave quaters. Many slaves worked for their masters and slept in this crowded small Back House, away from their owners. As years progressed and slavery ended, slave owners moved out of the inner city into the outer limits. Yo Debleau's late grandfather purchased this home and later the oldest siblings occupied the Back House. Bringing you up to date, Yo Debleau moved in the Back House when he started college, and his childhood friend D.Callens became intrigued by music and it's affect on mankind. Eventually, they both decided to go at the game full force. They put money into renovating the Back House, then converted it into a studio & small office. From four beams on the front porch, to two young men revealing their dreams. After the studio's completion in 2003, they searched for engineers and producers, but no one wanted to lend a helping hand. As a result, the two young men spent two years learning about various audio programs as well as production. During this time they met with artists C-Gatty,Mello-Massive,Analogy,and Neshia, who are featured on the first project from Back House Music. Although it's the first, it doesn't sound like it is. The shocking part is they can only get better and better. It's just like a rookie coming into the league, their second year is when they do more astonishing things because they have built awareness and a general knowledge on the way things should be done. This CD rep's Birmingham, Alabama and the south as a whole, while still holding up lyrically to anyone in the game. Birmingham and the state of Alabama in it's entirety, is over looked when it comes to hip-hop, but it will get it's due props! This is a great first independent CD, one that displays great talent by D.Callens, Yo Debleau, C-Gatty, Mello-Massive, and Neshia. Back House Music was founded on making music from the heart, and not conforming to the things that others do. No one give props to copy cats! Back House Music strives on being different and innovative! When you check out this CD, there will be no let downs, and the best is yet to come! 'They are just gettin started!' It's only their first album ever!!!
