Based in California, Dudley Perkins, otherwise known as Declaime, has made a name for himself in the hip-hop/funk game. Furthering his artistry from collaborations with Flying Lotus, J. Rawls, Aloe Blacc, Madlib, and of course Georgia Anne Muldrow, Declaime’s work is nothing short of outside the norm. Elements of funk, jazz, hip-hop, rap, and spiritual neo-soul makeup the sounds you’ll find in songs like “Whole Wide World” and “How Gods Do”. Declaime and Muldrow started a label called SomeOthaShip Connect in the past decade, releasing the G-funk styled Fonk. Check out Declaime’s latest solo album Young Spirit to hear sounds that are almost unimaginable.
