Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaim - SomeOthaShip (MelloMusic)
Mello Music don't just talk the talk they have constantly delivered their manifesto, only dealing with the modern torch bearers of thinking American black music as their roster testifies with sweet, soulful beat don Apollo Brown, the think before they talk lyricist's Trek Life and Oddisee amongst their roster and of course the one and only Georgia Anne Muldrow and Delaime (otherwise know as Dudley Perkins)
So it was more of a pleasant surprise this morning when we noticed that Mello Music are giving away the Georgia Anne Muldrow and Declaime album SomeOthaShip which we were championing on the radio show when it first dropped at the start of last year and we thought we'd help spread the word.
The duo certainly pulled in the favours with this album with all sorts of like minded guests vocalists and producers jumping in to lend a hand including Kool G Rap, MED, Big Pooh & Flying Lotus. The album veers between the cosmic G-Funk of 'Endure' to club bangers 'Heaven or Hell', the hip shaking funk vibes of 'Get Up' remixed by Oddisee or the interstellar beats and erudite lyrics of 'Mages Sages II' produced by Flying Lotus.
Really you shouldn't need much more encouragement to swap your email address for a high quality download of this album. Just turn it up and help spread the Mello Music word.
Here's a cool little video of Georgia Anne working on a remix for A Suite For Ma Dukes - how musical is her kid going to be!!
