Video: G&D – “Majesty”
Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins Release New Video For “Majesty,” Throw Live-Streamed Hometown Celebration at LA’s Boiler Room June 25th
Critical Praise for G&D:
“[She’s] an enormously promising young talent.” – NPR
“Maintaining a stinging originality in a world of musical predictability bless the Jah Jah and Dudley – the freshest bloodlines in the game today.” – Gilles Peterson, renowned DJ, BBC
“No current musician can write an introspective spiritual like Georgia Anne Muldrow, and her influence on Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and many others proves she’s on the cusp of becoming a major artist.” – SPIN
Collaboration is a complex concept in the world of hip-hop. In a landscape of overblown individual personas, many of the most creatively fruitful collaborations occur when two distinct artistic voices fuse, resulting in a cohesive yet multi-layered relationship between perspectives and visions. It is no surprise that long-time collaborators Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins (a.k.a Declaime) are able to complement each other musically–their collaboration extends throughout their lives. The husband and wife duo’s newest visual for “Majesty,” off of their recent album The Lighthouse, highlights the inseparable connection between the two artistically. Muldrow highlighted that as Perkins’ “place in this world as a poet of depth and authenticity” is given weight by her minimalist production aesthetic.
The kaleidoscopic video, which was premiered by VIBE, aims to capture the “celestial vibe” of connective positivity around which G & D had built the track. The duo feels the vibe: “the standout quality of this piece is the chemistry between us, creating a better now to unify with the world around us.” The duo is celebrating the release of the video and album The Lighthouse by performing alongside DJ Romes, Ill Camille, and many more tonight Tuesday, June 25th at the Boiler Room in Los Angeles. A video live stream will be available through Boiler Room TV.
