DJ Brainchild & Dego Release It’s All Over The Place Mixtape + Dego’s Solo Debut Album Out June 20th

 

Brooklyn based music aficionado and our pal DJ Brainchild was commissioned by the highly revered sound magician Dego (2000Black, 4Hero, Silhouette Brown) to create a mixtape chronicling his works, old and new alike. Brainchild took care to perfect a delicate balance between well known tracks, lesser known “overlooked” tracks, and hidden gems many probably didn’t know existed. His favorite from the mix include: 4Hero’s “Hold It Down,” Da One Away’s “Trash Da Junk,” Dego’s “What ever” and 2000 Black’s “If You Got 3 Wishes” and “Got Me Puzzled.”

“Mind Traveling” by Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime

Who better to take you astral traveling than the SomeOthaShip Connect duo? Declaime (aka Dudley Perkins) & Georgia Anne Muldrow (aka Jyoti) have released this track “Mind Traveling” to go along with the 3-part series The Vale of Happiness. Both Declaime and Georgia like to stray and explore all kinds of musical instruments and genres, but this is the duo in their top form: Little-Dragon-esque melodies with Georgia’s layered rhythms supporting Declaime’s laid back flow.
