From Michelle at Audible Treats:
Georgia & Declaime recently dropped their debut LP, SomeOthaShip, on Mello Music Group, and to keep the freshness flowing here come two brand new remixes of one of the album's many standout tracks, "Heaven Or Hell," which also served as the title track of their pre-album, vinyl-only EP. Enter: The Re-Bop, and Queen G Remixes. Both versions are produced and remixed by Georgia Anne Muldrow herself who originally only intended one new remix, but ended up delivering more than she planned. "Georgia wanted to take the reins and create a new remix for the track," says Michael Tolle, founder and head of Mello Music Group. "She ended up creating 3: the album's street version and these two incredibly unique interpretations of the track." The remixed versions find the song with a slightly beefed up head-nod factor, and some choice melodic change-ups. But don't spend too much time figuring out which version you want, grab them both.
During a recent New York stop, when they performed their album release show at SOBs in Februrary, Georgia & Declaime stopped by the Out Da Box TV studios for an in-depth video interview where the duo share their thoughts on everything from the yin-yang type of relationship they have making music together, what inspires them as people and artists, the message in their music, who they enjoy collaborating with, the legacy they hope to leave behind, and much more.
Bay Area fans of Georgia & Declaime can also look forward to seeing the duo perform live when they take the stage Saturday, April 10th alongside Common, The Black Keys, N.E.R.D., and more for Yuri's Night at the NASA Ames Research Center at Mott Field in Mountain View, California. Advance tickets are $49.50 and can be purchased at www.ynba.org.
SomeOthaShip is available at all digital and physical retailers now.

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. SomeOthaShip is available now digitally via Mello Music Group.
