Peep the new video from Declaime…
“Oxnard, CA native and frequent Madlib collaborator Dudley Perkins is back again with an hour-long documentary, Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U., detailing his career, the man behind the music, spirituality and much more.
Produced by Xylophone Films, during the documentary Dudley explains the confusion behind his Declaime moniker, and how his real name, Dudley Perkins, actually became his alter ego. “The name Declaime stuck to the point where a lot of people thought that was my real name,” explains Dudley. “So when I told them my name was Dudley they thought I was playing a joke on them, so it turns out Dudley Perkins became the alter ego!”
But it wasn’t always the case that his name was well known or known at all; it took tremendous faith in what seemed to be a never-ending struggle to succeed, and dedication was of the utmost importance. “We figured we’d just grind it out, we’d do the music,” says Dudley of him and his crew. “Some of us had jobs every once in a while, but we couldn’t think straight when we were doing a 9 to 5. We’d end up cutting our finger or something in the conveyor belt, trying to work a 9 to 5 with music and lyrics going through our heads all day.”
Complete with tons of video footage from Dudley Perkins recording in the studio, performing at live shows, and even cooking his secret family recipe, Spaghetti a La Dudley, Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U. shines a light on the uniqueness of the artist, father, and creative, Dudley Perkins.”
