Georgia Anne Muldrow - "Untitled/Fantastic"

The Sounds of VTech / Georgia Anne Muldrow SFMD Remix Untitled/Fantastic

Singer, songwriter, producer Georgia Anne Muldrow recently accepted a challenge that many others thought about attempting, but later declined. Muldrow just dropped this remix of "Untitled/Fantastic", a Slum Village classic produced by the late legendary Jay Dee. The difficult part was remixing Dilla's tributary orchestra A Suite For Ma Dukes version of the song. Though many would expect to hear lyrics laid over the track, resources say that her microphone was getting repaired so she sang the vocals that you hear through a clip mic used to capture video sound. Regardless Muldroe put it down and created a 3rd generation masterpiece. Check it out for yourself by streaming the audio above!
