G&D – “Where I’m From”

Georgia Anne Muldrow is hip-hop soul musician from LA. For more than a decade, she’s been recording for labels such as Stones Throw, Brainfeeder, and her own SomeOthaShip Connect. She caught our attention last year with her “Overload” single. Dudley Perkins, a rapper also on Stones Throw, has been Muldrow’s partner for 13 years. The pair have three children together, and now they’ve also conceived a collaborative project called G&D.

The duo’s debut album Black Love & War is about the unity of the black family as is largely produced by Muldrow. Its lead single “Where I’m From” is definitely worth checking out. This one’s a bit more acoustic compared to “Overload,” and has a smoldering, earthy feel. While giving Muldrow’s full-bodied vocals a place to shine, it still features some of those digital top-line trills that serve as a reminder of the track’s modernity. Along with Perkins’ relaxed yet rhythmic verses, a transportive atmospheric synth pad swirls horizontally. A simple drum beat maintains throughout as Muldrow’s gospel ad libs soar.
