The New Age Movement

Atlanta – October 1, 2007 – 80’s Babies music is a blend of youthful soul & spawning creativity, mixed on occasion with a spice of fluid raps over a new sound given off by Ear Regular Music production team. 80’s Babies/Forest Gump’s music is considered by many to be alternative hip-hop in a bold, innovative new direction: less reliance on aggression, more positively and melody, thicker arrangements, and intricate lyrics. A campaign of music for the future!

Birthed in Atlanta, Ga.; 80’s Babies style wasn't conventional for ATL’s crunk market, but, the rhythm selection of artist Forest (a.k.a Forest Gump), his cast of entertaining characters and a tasteful dress code, 80’s Babies quickly drew the attention of record executes and hungry fans of all ages; giving the performer a forceful, powerful edge that is designed to sell out arenas nationwide. Forest, 80s Babies’ lone vocalist, quotes “I’m the representative for 80's Babies all over the world. We are the new age movement ”.

80’s Babies are now accepting shows locally and internationally, looking to spread the refreshing new innovative sound, which not only captivates Hip-Hop fans but Alternative and Techno alike. The first hit single entitled “Party Animal," distinctively combined a catchy Princesque` melody with flavorful lyrics, which are ingredients for instant commercial success; and provides the 80’s Babies with a signature sound.

80’s Babies style is sure to keep the critics raving and produce strong sales.

Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Forest Donell Factory, 21 July 1980, Bakersfield, California USA. Raised in Bakersfield, Forest first began his music career in 1995 as founder, producer, and group member of Got Much Game(other local artists), part-financing his music by hustling. Assuming the name “Big Cudd,” he featured on compilation albums such as “Playa Association Vol. II, Full Time Hustlin,” and “Campaignin” that were released in 1998. One of which featured the late Tupac. Forest also known as, Big Cudd also appeared as producer and writer with a group “Latino Velvet” including Latin pioneers, Baby Bash, Kid Frost, and Jay Tee of N2 Deep. Now as an established producer and songwriter, in 1999, Forest along with group members of Got Much Game, signed with former record label Desert Heat. Forest became the head producer for the label, composing the albums: Unda da Influenced, I.D. Young Go Ghettas, as well as his own, G.M.G Way II Skandaless, which featured artists, Suga T(of Tha Click), and Bad Azz(of Dogg Pound). During his time with the label his also worked with hometown native rock group Korn and the well known radio D.J.’s the Baker Boys. Directly after recording these albums in 1999 Bigg Cudd was incarcerated, which did not allow him to engage in any of the albums’ releases. Upon his return after serving a two-year sentence Forest resigned from the label Desert Heat and then began his solo career.

Now starting from the ground up Forest returned to the studio and began building his catalog of music. By pursuing the local radio stations Forest linked up with Violator’s DJ, Alex G who incorporated his music into various mix shows, drops, and interviews. As a result Forest became the first local artist to be taken seriously and promoted through radio and performances.

Through a joint venture with close friend and movie\video producer Monte C. Wilson of Fox5 News. A local televison show, Urban Heat was birthed in which Forest was co-producer and also music producer. With radio and television now in place as huge launching pads of promotion Forest released his first solo album entitled 7-21-80. Now with the full support of his home town, sales highly exceeded expectation. Encountering the limitations of the smaller market Forest then researched a rising musical location. Determined for success, he then relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. This is where 80' s Babies was birthed. First by the crossover of music into the alternative pop\hip-hop culture with a retro -eighties sound and image. Then by exposing the music to a broader audience. The response was phenomenal. A huge fan base was quickly acquired. 80's Babies was soon contacted by a New York based magazine “The Fader” and featured on the compilation Suite 903, hosted by DJ Lindsey. The song featured, “Broke up yesterday” rated number one in the internet magazine The Brain. Placed in numerous mix shows nationally and internationally, through XM radio Forest (80's Babies) has now established himself as main stream ready. Forest is now working closely with Atlanta’s hit station Hot 107.9 in the independent artist department. Now you can hear 80's Babies every Saturday morning as the opening for DJ Redd Dread’s Wake-up show.
