Looking to start 2010 off with a bang, Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime (AKA Dudley Perkins) are dropping the track “Endure” from their upcoming joint album SomeOthaShip along with the fresh “Endure” EthNick Remix courtesy of beat maestro Nick Tha 1Da.
“Endure” is a song of contrasts – contemplative yet free-spirited, dark yet uplifting – and it gives listeners an all-access pass into the minds of Georgia & Declaime. The track, which also features the lyrical stylings of M.E.D. and Rapper Big Pooh, seems fit for the times as it urges listeners to “endure the storm” and to “remember that the bad times have only made you stronger.” The positive vibes are inspired in part by Georgia who says that the lyrics help pull her out of the past “and into a new and improved being that is ready to act in the liberation of [her] people through music.” As the lyrics end, the song endures for a full minute in a meditative instrumental state giving the listener a moment to pause and reflect upon the track’s central theme which, according to Georgia, is to “endure” and not to “give up on yourself, or your potential to be greater than you’ve chosen not to be.”
The “Endure” EthNick Remix by Nick Tha 1Da retains all of the potency of the original and also injects an infectious beat backbone into the mix. “Endure” has been requested to be remixed by numerous producers and, after having been reworked by Oh No, Oddisee, and Apollo Brown, Nick Tha 1Da seemed like a logical choice to pass the remix torch to. Hailing from Washington D.C., Nick Tha 1Da is no stranger to the game, having produced for the likes of Finale and Raheem DeVaughn, and his presence on the track is a game changer of melodious proportions. Neck-snapper curator, beat engineer – Nick Tha 1Da does “Endure” proud as he brings East Coast stylings to his bass heavy remix, and complements the positive vibes of the song by using a selection of strings guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the strictest non-believer. SomeOthaShip, a Mello Music Group release, will be available digitally February 16th and will be hitting physical retail locations February 23rd.
In a world made of plastic, Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime (AKA Dudley Perkins) breathe. Georgia radiates light into the west coast hip-hip scene with her vocal mixture of social revolution and raw street wisdom. Her choruses echo the voices of yesterday while her beats explore the cosmic sounds of tomorrow. Having already worked with the likes of Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and Madlib, Georgia finds herself taking a well-deserved turn in the spotlight and ready to keep up her collaborative efforts in 2010. Declaime is a veteran to the hip-hop game, with a voice that overflows with bluesy, syncopated veracity. Characterized by his impossible range and stirring cadence, Declaime has the ability to captivate with the unmistakable sound of experience, breathing a spiritual wind back into the funked out vibrations of hip-hop. Combined, Georgia & Declaime have created an impressive catalog of work including Georgia’s Worthnothings, Umsindo, and Kings Ballad, plus Declaime’s Conversations With Dudley, A Lil Light, Expressions, and Holy Smokes. Both are now set for the release of their joint album, SomeOthaShip in 2010 via Mello Music Group.
