Georgia Anne Signs to Ubiquity
- Words: Thomas Rees
San Francisco's Ubiquity Recordings, the premier label for forward-thinking jazz, hip-hop, and R&B, has just signed Georgia Anne Muldrow to its roster, with an EP coming in the fall and an album in early 2010. Muldrow is a perfect fit for the esoteric label, as her productions stretch the limits of genre—on one track she can channel Lauryn Hill's rapping style over a stuttering break, and on the next she can belt out some positive vibes over a funky '70s Motown beat. What's more, she often plays most of the instruments on her productions, and has produced for Mos Def ("Roses") and played on a number of Erykah Badu tracks. With a new baby in tow, Muldrow is certainly keeping busy, and in releasing her work, Ubiquity will be keeping with its tradition of putting out innovative acts, ranging from the leftfield psychedelic hip-hop of Sa-Ra to the jazzy house of Theo Parrish. Other upcoming fall releases for the label include an LP featuring the jazzy beats and breaks of Lord Newborn & The Magic Skulls, an LP of The Clonious' cosmic funk, and a 10" EP of hypnotic electronic beats by Bei-Bei and Shawn Lee.
