I listen to a lot of great new music.This album really impressed me enough to put it up on its own.I normally do an album of the day out of free albums that are available for download.But this album I had to pop up a post about in the hopes of putting other people onto the greatness that I think it is.Hopefully people purchase the record like I did so these guys might sell a few records and continue to make good music.Peace to Freddie Cruger and Anthony Mills.& thank you for the great album.

Cookie Dough is the new album from Wildcookie, aka Freddie Cruger and Anthony Mills.

Since his last release on Tru Thoughts in 2006 Freddie Cruger, aka Red Astaire, has been busy travelling the world as a DJ and releasing music on his own label, Homegrown Records – one of these releases was the debut, and now extremely rare, Wildcookie 12″. The Drugs EP received support from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 1 and the lead track, Cookie Dough, also features on Cookie Dough. Wildcookie is not a one man band though; each one of Freddie’s ultra-crisp productions and sophisticated synthline melodies are backed with the pitch perfect, often freestyled, vocals of Anthony Mills.

Anthony Mills has toured extensively with Harry Belafonte’s All-Star Band, recorded with Krs-One, Amy Winehouse, Leela James, Maxi Priest, Snow, Sizzla, Dead Prez, Doc (Esthero), Sly Dunbar, Chinna Smith and Grace Bumbry. Mills has written over 1000 songs in this time and recorded well over 100 studio and live albums, providing lead vocals for two other duos – Super Viral Brothers (Pope/Universal) and XXLARGEMILLS.

Every track on the album was selected by Cruger and Mills for its particular mood; based on flow, variety and content. Cookie Dough is the result of two friends working together with no boundaries, finding new routes into making soul, hip hop, R’n’B and breaks.

    It doesn’t come with a picture sleeve anymore (we ran out) but the record is still out. We are also manufacturing vinyl on the “Cookie Dough” album which should be out by the Fall. And you can find lots of Freddie Cruger and Red Astaire releases (including the “Nuggets For The Needy” album) on our site for sale: http://www.groovedis.com
