Declaime - Fame

Fresh off some SomeOthaShip, Declaime aka Dudley Perkins is prepping the release of his latest solo effort, FONK. It will be available digitally as well as physically on May 4th. For listeners of Declaime’s previous works not only does this project signify a departure from his Dudley Perkins persona but it also finds Declaime returning to his funk roots.  “I wanted to keep it to my heritage of West Coast funk," says Declaime. "A lot of us west coast underground artists tend to go to the east coast feel 'cause it's an innovative boom-bap sound…” To help him achieve this sound Delclame solicited the talents of Quazedelic, an understudy of the principal innovator of P-funk, George Clinton, to produce the album in its entirety. The album’s lead single, Fame, is indicates of Declaime’s fonkadelic direction.
