about

Louisville, Kentucky, a city with no shortage of musical heavyweights in its history (look it up!), is home to the prolific hip-hop/neo-soul producer Dr. Dundiff. Armed with an array of instruments (including his trusty MPC) and a bevy of talented area collaborators, Dr. Dundiff has revealed The Distance, his latest ambitious album, released on the Cold Busted label. WIth over 40 projects under his belt — including past releases on Jakarta Records, Mellow Orange Music, and Grand Garden Records — Dr. Dundiff draws upon a wealth of musical experiences, all coming together harmoniously on The Distance. The album is deliciously jazzy and deliriously loose with crisp beats, smooth vibes, and amazing vocalists and emcees, including Claire Reneé, James Lindsey, K Raydio, Pink Siifu, and Shania Robinson.

“What You Want,” featuring the lovely Claire Rene and some stunning saxophone riffs, sets the tone on a smokey soulful sheen. It’s the real deal, also evident in the abstract hip-hop of “Slip.” Here the L.A.-based Pink Siifu transmits exquisite rhymes over Dr. Dundiff’s remarkable production and a glorious, ramshackle rhythm. Another highlight is the exceptionally groovy “What I Want” (perhaps an answer to the earlier song?). The music wraps the listener in a warm territory not too far off from Blue LInes-era Massive Attack, guided by the voice of Shania Robinson. “Skat” is notable, as well, with a super-dope performance by renowned Louisville rapper James Lindsey and an emotive ‘done different’ music bed. And then there’s the title track, featuring K Raydio’s calm and reassuring vocal delivery, which soulfully drives home the theme of the album. As Dr. Dundiff says, “Everybody has someplace that they are and everybody has someplace that they want to be. And The Distance is the space between.”

Track Name: Welcome Feat. K.Raydio
Welcome
Track Name: What You Want Feat. Claire Reneé
If I gave you
Every minute of my day
Would you stay?
Would you stay?
And if I gave you
All my heart
Gambled away my sanity
Would you stay?

If I gave you every dollar in my pocket
Held a picture of you in my minds locket
You will still do me dirty
I would never be worthy
If i mend your broken heart
And make you better
Push you towards your goals
Help you get that cheddar
You would still find something i did wrong

Don’t lie
Don’t front
I could never be what you want
I could never be what you want
Don’t lie
Don’t front
I could never be what you want
Never ever be what you want

I know I
Gave you the kinda lovin
That a make a nigga cry
And still you would not stay
I know I
Am through
With giving my all to you
To be left with nothing at all

See I ain’t gon press you
I ain’t gon stress you
Cause if I’m being honest
I can’t even digest you
Go your way
Please go away
Your renting space in my heart
And you don’t pay
So i need you to please vacate
Please vacate
Please vacate (Get gone)

Don’t lie
Don’t front
I could never be what you want
I could never be what you want
Don’t lie
Don’t front
I could never be what you want
Never ever be what you want
Track Name: Skat Feat. James Lindsey
Long naps hit the snooze,
Tom sachs for the shoes,
Black as some crude oil, gas
Or Manute..
Black bean soup, for I smash let it cool.
Broadcast on the tube
Back at the pulpit...Back like caboose..
My train of thoughts like the hyperloop...
They out the loop like untying shoes.
I loop it back until I got a pool.
Brainstorm Category 2...
Lucid dreaming wrote an album in my slumber.
Dialed in like a number
Might hit Oslo up in one of..
These days seem to be better than my last..
I was told when you tired only medicine for that’s..
Long naps.

I think I feel something inside of me
Maybe I should wait a little longer.
I could be dreaming...
I could be dreaming… (2x)

I sleep away the hate is independent
they say I gotta live up to expectations..
My people weren’t free when the deceleration..
was signed at the time we was just black labor.
Shoutout to the Trail Blazers, hell raisers
Now I vacate to the city of angels...
You can be the original or replacement
But I like both “US Placers” and “The Eraser”
Like errors on pages
Aerosol spray shit
The Mac 11 like Yogi Ferrell with ranges
Eating Farro to stay fit.
Ferris wheel same shit
Over and over.
Was told I’m never complacent true
My reply was if so then I’d be adjacent you.
Alkaline in my water make sure pH cool.
Long faces..
I’m headed home when I know I covered all bases, dream chasing…

I think I feel something inside of me
Maybe I should wait a little longer.
I could be dreaming...
I could be dreaming… (2x)
Track Name: The Distance Feat. K.Raydio
When darkness falls, when day is done
I trace the path of which I’ve come
A lonely road, but nevermind
It all makes sense through space and time

… Time to let go, time to forgive
You learned a lot, it’s time to live” (2x)

So long ago, I feared the night
Afraid to live, afraid to die
But when it rained, I learned to smile
I learned to dance, a little while
Little while, little while

I met the sun, again at last
Surrounded by my crowded past
She spoke to me and called my name
“My dear, my love … it’s a new day ...

… Time to let go, time to forgive
You learned a lot, it’s time to live” (2x)

So long ago, I feared the night
Afraid to live, afraid to die
But when it rained, I learned to smile
I learned to dance, a little while
Little while, little while (2x)

Take a breath, ‘nother step
No look back, past has left (4x)
Track Name: Slip Feat. Pink Siifu
Wen the summer freeze
Will ya candle still be
Eye need eye want
This blunt still g
Some nxggas don't need what they want
Papa always said don't fuck around with them fuck arounds
Don't fuck around with them fuck arounds ain't on that fuck shit

Head turning around
back around
end up 6 feet
Tossing turning
Turning around
Dead
Most definitely
One of the realist nxggas still above sea
See

Ion see none of the ones that eye grew up with
Everything changing even the address
Same number since elementary
New subject
Demons they try to whisper see
Enemy
Ion need that
Tryna keep my mind straight
Keep my head on
Cut the head bet the king live on
U can still call me but bet eye pick up quick
U heard what she said

Mama don't play that Shit
Tell em gone with that Shit (2x)

It was all in the wrist
Just a minute ago (2x)

Call go thru
Let the soul go thru
Mama don't play that Shit
Tell em gone with that Shit

It was all in the wrist
Just a minute ago (2x)

Shawty do whatever she do
It's been a minute she been with it
Since school
Door walk thru
Spin the classroom
Hustling too
Fuck showing proof
Low key too
Paying rent too
Mothering 2
Lil bros 2
Black move end of the day
We just doing what we gotta do to get paid
I'm just tryna let god save

Mama don't play that Shit
Tell em gone with that Shit (2x)
Gone
It was all in the wrist
Just a minute ago
Call go thru
Let the soul go thru
Let yo feelings go
Go

Mama don't play that Shit
Tell em gone with that Shit (2x)

It was all in the wrist
Just a minute ago (2x)

Call go thru
Let the soul go thru
Mama don't play that Shit
Tell em gone with that Shit

It was all in the wrist
Just a minute ago (2x)

Let yo feelings go (8x)
Track Name: Thorn Feat. Touch A.C.
Thorn in my side the size of a Cadillac;
Matt Skiba needin' Shiva's cataracts.
Either deciever or true believer:
how to act when the world stands still?

This ocean is host to the soul-less.
The slow comatose shoulder cold over motives.
I seen 'em.
They said they seen it too, I guess I believe 'em.
(God have mercy, Christ have mercy)
No I don't.

It's just a way of interjecting themselves
and the subsequent homebrew Hell.
Frankly, I find myself stumbling on specifics
that everyone else assumes.
Home is where the heart is too afraid to leave its room.

I sniff through the fumes and smell it was just something
cookin' on the blistered rotting epidermis thermostat set.
Demagogue buried where he slept;
hygrangeas growin on the grave
wishin' they could wish to rue the day.

Never suprised and if it's high tide in the wake of the flood
I'll wait with my blood-stained...

Not me.
Not you.
Not anyone we knew.
Not anyone we thought we knew.
Not anytime we told the truth,
Leaking from the surfaces of mouths almost blue from
asphixiation.
No air comin' through through.
Shutters closin' on a window.
A drone crashin' through a roof.
A garden of earthly delights.
A gargolye on a stoop
wishin' anyone would dare to see it new.

(it's me and you)
(it's me and you)
(it's me and you)

Hold me close and don't let go
for the rest of the whole
mosaic shit show.
Hold still.
Let the eclipse shit go.

(it's me and you)
(it's me and you)

Another minute 'til the whimsicle diminish.

(it's me and you)
(it's me and you)

A smile soured.
A grimace empowered.
Aacrifical scapegoat suddenly a coward.
Sunset in the Tower.

(it's me and you)

A lucid lavender hour.

(it's me and you)
Track Name: What I Want Feat. Shania Robinson
First off let me say
I couldn’t see the way you changed me baby yeah
Never know what to think
I just go with the flow and I hope you don’t hurt me babe

Really feeling like you see through me
There’s no point in hiding
My heart’s been comprised it’s true
When you move I move
It’s hopeless but I’m cool with it
Deep down, I don’t have a doubt that..

God knew what he was doing
When he sent you to me
My life’s a living movie
Sometimes seems like a dream
Baby when you’re around me
You know I love the view
One thing I know for sure is
I need you

Now I know what I want
Want ya hand in my hand
So we can slow dance
Feelings of romance so deep for ya baby
You had the lighter
And you sparked a fire in me
The sun’s looking brighter
It’s everything you do everything you do

Really love the way you speak to me
You don’t have to lie cuz I see it in your eyes it’s true
When you move I move
It’s hopeless but I’m cool with it
Deep down, I don’t have a doubt that..

God knew what he was doing
When he sent you to me
My life’s a living movie
Sometimes seems like a dream
Baby when you’re around me
You know I love the view one thing I know for sure is
I need you
