Georgia Anne Muldrow Remixes “Untitled/Fantastic” + MP3

We’ve known Gerogia Anne Muldrow and her aliases as a staple on the scene for a while, but she’s been even more prolific than usual lately. Georgia is appearing as “Jyoti” in her forthcoming Jazz album, Ocotea, paying homage to the late, great Alice Coltrane who gifted her with this name. With encouragement from the sublime Alice Coltrane, an innovative musician in her own right, it’s no wonder that Georgia’s works have gained so much praise from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Erykah Badu.

From our friends at Mochilla:  “Remixing Suite for Ma Dukes is a brave undertaking.  Several producers and MCs at first accepted and then declined the job.  In the end we think we got the right person.  It is with great pleasure on the week of Mothers Day to release this remix.  Done while mothering by none other than Georgia Anne Muldrow.  This project began as an homage to one mother’s love (Ma Dukes) and has now been remixed by another (Georgia Anne Muldrow) with her son Nokware in her lap.  Two incredible women, one amazing track.  Remixed.

Georgia who has done production for Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and partner Dudley Perkins was an amazing person to watch at work.  Her feel is so hers.  She seemed so comfortable with the music.  She insisted that she didn’t want to chop the song but to play along as if she was there in the Orchestra.  We wanted her to sing on the track too but her microphone was in the shop for repairs – so on suggestion she sang the vocals into the lavaller tie clip mic that we used to capture sound for the video.

This remix and the two other remixes from Te’Amir (remixing Mulatu Astatke) and Jneiro Jarel (remixing Arthur Verocai) will be available on a Timeless Remixed EP this summer.”

The second single from Illa J‘s acclaimed debut album Yancey Boys, “Sounds Like Love” feat. Debi Nova is an irresistible, perfect fusion of hip hop and soul music. The production for the song, like all of the tracks on Yancey Boys, comes from a cache of previously‐untouched beats created by Illa J’s older brother, the late great visionary producer James “Jay Dee / J Dilla” Yancey.

The 12-inch includes remixes by Nobody, who turns in a grimier version, and Carlos Niño & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, who transform it into a cinematic trip to the cosmos.
