Biography

As a vocal muse for Madlib’s creations, Dudley is unmatched; he’s earned first pick at Madlib’s prized beat collections. Just like Madvillain or Quasimoto, the Dudley/Madlib combination is a facet unto its own – on par with the most illustrious collaboration projects in Madlib’s catalog.

His dynamic sophomore effort, entitled Expressions (2012 A.U.), takes an extended detour in the direction of Parliament’s Mothership Connection. The funk is strong this time around – as is the soul music that brought tears to the eyes of Dudley’s and Madlib’s aunts and uncles back in the golden days. Dudley continues his plaintive, introspective soul-searching – as well as his trademark questions of the future for mankind.

As always, his search for goodness and truth is balanced by a robust and hilarious celebration of the good life – the booty life and the weed life. But expect even funkier dance-floor singles this time – and even more melodious arrangements from Madlib, who again handles all production duties.

Aside from Dudley Perkins’ two releases on Stones Throw, he has continued to work for other labels under the name Declaime, as well as several collaborations with Georgia Anne Muldrow.
