Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime (AKA Dudley Perkins) Endure
"Endure" is a song of contrasts - contemplative yet free-spirited, dark yet uplifting - and it gives listeners an all-access pass into the minds of Georgia & Declaime. The track, which also features the lyrical stylings of M.E.D. and Rapper Big Pooh, seems fit for the times as it urges listeners to "endure the storm" and to "remember that the bad times have only made you stronger." The positive vibes are inspired in part by Georgia who says that the lyrics help pull her out of the past "and into a new and improved being that is ready to act in the liberation of [her] people through music." As the lyrics end, the song endures for a full minute in a meditative instrumental state giving the listener a moment to pause and reflect upon the track's central theme which, according to Georgia, is to "endure" and not to "give up on yourself, or your potential to be greater than you've chosen not to be."
The "Endure" EthNick Remix by Nick Tha 1Da retains all of the potency of the original and also injects an infectious beat backbone into the mix. "Endure" has been requested to be remixed by numerous producers and, after having been reworked by Oh No, Oddisee, and Apollo Brown, Nick Tha 1Da seemed like a logical choice to pass the remix torch to. Hailing from Washington D.C., Nick Tha 1Da is no stranger to the game, having produced for the likes of Finale and Raheem DeVaughn, and his presence on the track is a game changer of melodious proportions. Neck-snapper curator, beat engineer - Nick Tha 1Da does "Endure" proud as he brings East Coast stylings to his bass heavy remix, and complements the positive vibes of the song by using a selection of strings guaranteed to put a smile on the face of the strictest non-believer. SomeOthaShip, a Mello Music Group release, will be available digitally February 16th and will be hitting physical retail locations February 23rd. - Check out the remix here
