At the begining of 2010 I had this feeling that this was going to be a great year in music and now I know for sure. Why?
Only a month after the release of their album, SomeOthaShip, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Declaime AKA Dudley Perkins are proud to announce the founding of their own label, SomeOthaShip Connect. With distribution deals in place with E1 Music (physical and digital) and Fat Beats Records (vinyl) and a number of releases lined up already for 2010, including spring releases from Darryl Moore and Declaime, the label promises a bright future and fresh start for the duo.
SomeOthaShip Connect is delivering two albums on May 4th, Declaime’s FONK and Darryl Moore’s Where I’m At. A veteran of hip-hop, Declaime delivers on FONK, combining his own emcee forte with beats from luminary producer Quazedelic (Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, Angie Stone) to generate a sound brimming with rhymes and vivid hooks. The album’s initial single “Fame” will be available through iTunes beginning April 6th. New enterprising poet/singer, Darryl Moore is also not to be overlooked with his debut release, Where I’m At. The artist feeds Soul-hungry music lovers with eloquent lyrics and soulful melodies. “He’s an amazing poet, just as amazing as his singing,” praises Georgia. Previously, Darryl Moore has worked with the likes Bobby Brown, Gorilla Zoe & Cornel West.
Following these early May releases is a bevy of releases to follow. Georgia is releasing her own experimental jazz album, Ocotea, June 15th, while preparing for a new G&D album to be released later in the year. Her single “I Had A Revelation,” recorded at the legendary Agape Church in LA is also out on iTunes April 6th. In addition to forthcoming releases from newly signed artists Kadence, Stacy Epps, Rickie BB, Oji, Quazedelic AKA Stan Sly, and Reverend Michael Beckwith, SomeOthaShip Connect is also planning the release of books and comics as well, embarking on ventures big and small with their mission statement: “We are sailing, with intention, upon the shores of this reality, with a message of FONK and light for the whole planet.” (source: http://www.audibletreats.com/)
