Promise, from Toronto, Canada, is a new artist working with Duck Down Music. Promise has recently been featured in Duck Down collaboration tracks, such as "Run To Remember" with Buckshot & Smif N Wessun (proceeds from the sales of this song went to the Alzheimer's Research Foundation) and also "Better Than You," with Buckshot, Skyzoo & Sean Price, that was included in the soundtrack for NBA 2K11.
Oxnard, CA native and frequent Madlib collaborator Dudley Perkins is back again with an hour-long documentary, Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U., detailing his career, the man behind the music, spirituality and much more.
Produced by Xylophone Films, during the documentary Dudley explains the confusion behind his Declaime moniker, and how his real name, Dudley Perkins, actually became his alter ego. "The name Declaime stuck to the point where a lot of people thought that was my real name," explains Dudley. "So when I told them my name was Dudley they thought I was playing a joke on them, so it turns out Dudley Perkins became the alter ego!"

As Apathy, like most of us, winds down 2011 and prepares for 2012 (which will see new LP’s from The Demigodz & Army Of The Pharaohs and more) he gets in the X-Mas spirit with this new leak and he runs thru a wish of X-Mas wishes that most B-Boys & Girls can co-sign.
