The latest release from Amalgam and the Eclectic Breaks record label is a new LP entirely produced by DJ 2tall featuring Dudley Perkins (aka Declaime) and Georgia Anne Muldrow on vocal duties. This is a unique UK/USA collaboration project that combines intelligent lyrics, free thinking, poetic verse and skilled studio productions, to result in an incredibly fresh, poignant and positive album.
The album’s title ‘Beautiful Mindz’ is a message to the listeners that we are capable of much more than we think, and the project itself reflects that it’s not difficult to put together a unique album of music with people from other parts of the planet. From their initial acquaintance to the albums completion, the whole experience was natural and organic as all great partnerships are.
Dudley Perkins is best known for his releases on US label Stones Throw Records, where he lends his unique voice to many of Madlib’s productions. Highlights from his releases include the single ‘Flowers’ and album ‘Expressions (2012 A.U.)’, plus the album ‘Illmindmuzik’ as Declaime on Good Vibe Recordings. Georgia Anne Muldrow is also associated with Stones Throw, and is their only female signing. Noticed early on by fellow LA hip hop trendsetters Sa Ra, as well as Detroit’s Platinum Pied Pipers, the buzz created saw her sound reach the airwaves of Worldwide with Gilles Peterson on the BBC, and to Peanut Butter Wolf, who signed her to a two-album deal on Stones Throw, where she recently released ‘Olesi: Fragments Of An Earth’.Originally known for his accolades in the DJ championship world, where he took home the title of UK DMC Team Champions in 2003 with his crew the Trusicians, 2tall has been making a name for himself as a producer over the past few years. ‘Beautiful Mindz’ is the first ever project from these three combined talents.
