JPLS Legacy

Remixing Suite for Ma Dukes is a brave undertaking. Several producers and MCs at first accepted and then declined the job. In the end though, the right person came along. And that’s none other than Georgia Anne Muldrow. Just in time for Mother’s Day too. This project began as an homage to one mother’s love (Ma Dukes) and has now been remixed by another (Georgia Anne Muldrow) with her son Nokware in her lap. Two incredible women, one amazing track. Remixed.

Georgia who has done production for Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and partner Dudley Perkins. She is an amazing person to watch at work. She seemed so comfortable with the music. She insisted that she didn’t want to chop the song but to play along as if she was there in the orchestra. Her microphone was in the shop for repairs – so she sang the vocals into the lavaller tie clip mic that was used to capture sound for the video. This remix and the two other remixes from Te’Amir (remixing Mulatu Astatke) and Jneiro Jarel (remixing Arthur Verocai) will be available on a Timeless Remixed EP this summer.
