BEYOND LABELS

IT'S BEEN WRITTEN

Dudley’s music is on some other shit.

It vibrates higher. So when we got around to thinking of potential names for the roast and label designs, I couldn’t help but think of Doc Bronner and his soap label rife with esoteric spiritual gems.

 

Some of my favorite include:

“Returning to a simpler way allows us to regain our dignity…”

&

“Honor yourselves, each other and Earth.”

So we culled some hip hop maxims from Dudley’s lyrics and my notebook and what you have on the label that you have in your hand.

YKTFV.

SOUND THEOLOGY

AND AWAY WE GO

DJ ROOTSOUNDS (aka Nomadik Vagabond) holds it down in the PNW.  As a practicing Greek Orthodox hip hop head with more than three decades in culture, he was the perfect choice to put together The Tonic! mixtape featuring music from Dudley Perkins AKA Declaime.

“Orthodox Christianity is the ancient form of Christianity. It is a continuation of what the disciples of Christ were given and they handed it down to those after them and that’s what I practice today.  The hip hop I connect with goes against the mainstream flow and vibrates at a higher frequency.  That’s why I’ve always messed with Dudley Perkins.  This mixtape is a gesture of appreciation for what his music has done and will continue to do.”

Amen to that.

Have a splash of The Tonic!
