ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kudu is the dynamic duo based out of Brooklyn and Atlanta that brings you beats, breaks, bounce, lyrics, and love with the wild, intelligent, melodic, beauty that 21st century pop was meant to be. Where others stagnate in the past or fail to convince us with their hodge-podge of styles, Kudu succeeds by taking the best from their western musical influences in electro, classical, jazz, hip-hop production and throws them in a high speed blender crafted from pop's finest modern materials. What you will taste here is a hint of familiarity but something completely unique and refreshing that once ingested induces hallucinations on the magic of life from its deepest tones to the glow of its brightest neons.

Kudu is comprised of two characters that individually can stand on their own feet as major talents. Together or separately they have toured, played with, or recorded for artists such as Vernon Reid, Q-Tip (Kamaal the Abstract), Amel Larrieux, N'Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies) and more.

D., the Beat Master, holds court among the finest drummers alive. Watching D. is like a caffeine jolt to the brain. Drumming since age 3 makes his kit as integral to his being as his right arm. He plays at lightning speeds replicating machine made beats with mechanical accuracy, plays the pocket like nobody's business, bangs out solo sets by triggered samples, or draws you in with abstract soundscapes. He is also one of the finest programmers heard creating track after hot track for various projects and artists.

Sylvia, the vocalist, is also an accomplished bassist, lyricist, songwriter, and producer. Her voice harkens Betty Carter sometimes playful and sometimes dark. She is likened to dancing the line between Billy Holiday and Siousie Sioux. Her lyrics have the childlike pop sensibility of strict rhyme forms that recall Shel Silverstein poems with all of the cleverness and the addition of their poetic ability to place vivid and dreamlike images in one's mind.

Coming to a Kudu show is like falling in love for the first time. Something new, wild, and passionate that completely captivates you and sticks in your mind. The Kudu E.P. is a nice representation of the Kudu world. Something different around every corner. Each track it's own special color. There it is, the shake-up you needed, the entertainment you wanted. Finally some new-pop you will really like.

How I love this Cd!
Sylvia, D yo can a sista get a song?

Y'all remember our boy on the keys, Brew. His little two-year-old baby girl was chillin with me and Kiki while we were dressing at Brew's crib before our N'Dea show in LA a few years back. We were playin' "Red Light, Green Light" over the stereo, and li'l miss thing just rolled back and forth on the bed, jammin to this song! That moment was sweet as pie, three sista gals jammin to Kudu.
Sylvia and D, y'all band is a gift from the future.

classic kudu songs
This cd has some of my favorite Kudu songs on it. Vines and Red Light Green Light are pure heroin for my craving brain. Kudu is light years ahead of it's time, but they're happening right now. They're some of the best creative electro-pop the east coast has to offer.
