Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins (a.k.a. G&D) are two of the few soul revivalists that don't have to hide behind retro samples and extravagant producers. Growing up under the wing of '70s progressive jazz and funk, the duo has reinvigorated the songwriting and production process, using both live keyboards, an array of synths, and primitive software. "One" taken from The Messsage Uni Versa (Look), is a new face of conscious soul that transcends overtly positive hip-hop and all things throwback. Photo by Peter Z. Jones.
