SomeOthaShip Connect Winds Down 2011, Shows Off Talented Roster With Three New Songs
With 2011 wrapped up, SomeOthaShip Connect, the record label founded by Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins a.k.a. Declaime, has big plans for the new year. But first, the burgeoning label is excited to unleash three final tracks, each from coming from the label's incredibly talented and exciting artist roster:
Funky, soulful, and supernatural are all words that come to mind when describing SomeOthaShip Connect artist Quazedelic a.k.a. Stan Sly and his unparalleled, out of this universe sound. Having already collaborated with the likes of Bootsy Collins, and Lenny Kravitz, and being a protégé of the P-Funk legend himself, George Clinton, Quaze exits Clinton's mothership and boards SomeOthaShip to bring us "Viva Las Vegas," a song from his properly titled and most recent project, AnuthaWorld. Complete with swinging drums, airy synthesizers, sporadic pianos, and a bassline that absolutely reeks of funk, "Viva Las Vegas" is a story telling track expressing the highs and lows of a visit to Las Vegas, as Quaze croons during the hook, "Viva Las Vegas, I tried my luck, now I'm a winner again/ Viva Las Vegas, I lost my faith now I'm a sinner again."
In contrast with Quaze's fun loving "Viva Las Vegas," his SomeOthaShip Connect label mate, Kadence, brings us "Hypocrisy," a track that showcases both his lyrical talent and personality in being an intellectual thinker, a hip-hop philosopher of sorts. Kadence drops multiple quotables throughout such as, "Sometimes it seems like interaction is molded to fit a standard/ That decimates our open nature like Mayans to Spaniards." Heavy on content and light on filler, "Hypocrisy" is full of depth. You can read the full lyrics to the song here, because as Kadence rhymes in the second verse, "If you missed it, that's just because the verse's purpose went / Over the average person's head like the bulk of a circus tent."
Although words speak volumes and hold much weight, sometimes the power of music alone without lyrics can speak even louder and even leave the interpretation of emotion up to the listener, such is the case with "3:27" by Stephan Muldrow, a song from his self-produced debut album, The Muldrow. Another artist of the SomeOthaShip Connect collective and brother of label co-founder Georgia Anne Muldrow, when asked about the sound of "3:27", Stephan says, " I'd call it action adventure RPG-style video game music, because I want it to heal emotional ailments in my brothers and sisters." The song is an up-tempo collage, full of arpeggios and synthesizers while the video is all played in fast-forward, a direct result of the mood when the track was made. "From the way I felt when I created it, I felt like I was moving through time faster than normal," explains Stephan. "3:27 is about rapid progression, it's the last song on the record, and it's the fastest one!"
