Never ones to stay quiet or stagnant for long – the royal galactic-fOnk duo Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins return to Earth, & this time they’ve brought some friends & family along with them on the Ship.
To coincide with the launch of their new site, SomeOthaShip.com, which features exclusive music downloads/previews, lyrics, Georgia paintings/sketchings & more, G&D present us with a 21-track SomeOthaShip Connect 2011 sampler. The album showcases whats in store for their SomeOthaShip label this year & beyond and features something both for and from everyone as they include the entire OS roster & family.
Some names to look out for include Riff Raff McGriff – an up-and-coming MC/producer and heir to the throne of the Oxnard, CA dynasty who I think will be making a lot of noise in the coming months; Kadence – a Michigan lyricist best known for his work with Dabrye; the debut of The Blackhouse – Georgia’s upcoming electro/house music project, as well as the contiuation of her one-woman jazz band alias, Jyoti, whose debut Gilles Peterson hailed & awarded as the Jazz Album Of The Year. Non-label guests include Madlib, Aloe Blacc, Miki Vale, and Prince Po of Organized Konfusion, & with even Dudley’s daughters & Georgia’s siblings providing tracks – SomeOthaShip Connect 2011 is by all means a family affair.
