Stream: G&D – The Lighthouse
Coming out next week, the link above will lead you to the latest full length from Georgia Ann Muldrow and Dudley Perkins, The Lighthouse. The album features a nicely blended collection of genres: hip hop, jazz, funk, and soul music. And they’re all framed in a pretty cosmic and futuristic way, so I’m pretty surprised I wasn’t hip to G&D long before the release of their third album here–especially considering how much I enjoy artists like THEESatisfaction and Flying Lotus.

Detroit hip hop producer and J Dilla associate Karriem Riggins has a new track out that’s in tribute to the recently deceased Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner, who was once the frontman for the legendary Ohio Players.
Not only is Riggins creating an incredibly funky sendoff for the band’s former singer, but he’s uncovering a bit of hip hop history here by chopping up one of the group’s most sampled songs, “Funky Worm.” The track’s squealing keyboard leads have turned up in numerous hip hop releases from the West Coast. From N.W.A. to Kendrick Lamar, “Funky Worm” isn’t going out of style any time soon.
