Hell yeah it’s that time again. Time for the most productive people in music, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins, to hit us up with something new!!

Somewhere in July of 2011 Dudley Perkins a.k.a Declaime will release his most focused effort since “Holy Smoke” and it’s called “Self Study”. In case your wondering what the album is about … the title is pretty much self explanatory. In Mr.Perkins words “Self Study is an acknowledgement of the transformation I’ve been going through. This album is a self help tool for me and others to raise the vibration in you to a more positive level.”  Yep some deep lyrical content is coming our way. The musical arrangements are equally interesting since it was Georgia Anne Muldrow on production.

But wait there is more … the Self Study CD comes with a full-length DVD, entitled  “Interplanetary Peace Talks ” a biographical documentary featuring rare, never-before-seen footage of Declaime with his longtime friends Madlib, Oh No, Kankick & others – in their earliest days of making hip-hop history together in their hometown of Oxnard, CA.

So what does all of this sound like?! I guess like the first single of the album “Quartz” … a track with a laid back Hiphop feel laced with Declaime’s signature fOnk!!

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/)

The aforementioned is all good news but the best is that Strangefruit presents Georgia Anne Muldrow and Declaime at ROTOWN on 6th of May 2010 for more details click here

Lately we have been saying goodbye to a lot of soul legends like James Brown, Luther Vandross and Barry White. But after Teddy Pendergrass died…I thought damn there goes soulmusic. Even though these soul legends cannot be replaced…today I was truly happy to find out that real soul music is still alive!! 

This enthusiasm is sparked by one of my favourites on the release list of Someothaship connect, the brainchild of duo Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow. A soulfilled album by the name of Where I’m At by Darryl Moore.  The full album will be available for purchase on the 4th of May 2010 and just so you can feel what I am talking about I urge you to visit Darryl Moore’s myspace.

The first single of the forthcoming Album is already out there the track Dream Girl is available on itunes and you can get it here.
