Since his last release on Tru Thoughts in 2006, Freddie Cruger, 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 inch. The Drugs EP featured Cookie Dough and received support from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio 1.

Press Release :
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.

In the last five years Mills has lived in Stockholm, penetrating Sweden's music and art scene including hooking up with Freddie Cruger, a native of the Swedish capital.

Cookie Dough will be out as a free digital single from wildcookie.bandcamp.com, on 24th January. You can see the video at youtube.com/truthoughtsrecords
