Listen To Dr. Octagon's "Moosebumps: An Exploration In the Modern Days of Horripilation"
#DXCLUSIVE: DJ Q-Bert, Kool Keith and Dan The Automator reveal that there's a problem with the final product.
For fans of Dr. Octagon, the album seemed long lost fantasy. But Friday (March 30), Kool Keith, Dan The Automator and DJ Q-Bert made dreams come true with Moosebumps: An Exploration In the Modern Days of Horripilation, their first proper follow-up to 1996's underground cult-classic, Dr. Octagonecologyst.
A week before its official launch, the album is currently available for streaming courtesy of NPR First Listen.
"I would say that if there was an old cult movie that got remade and it was better than the original, this is like that," Q-Bert says HipHopDX about the project.
Dan adds, "This is the best possible time without the risk of getting moosebumps."
The exclusive group of MC's, Kool Keith, is just happy to be back. "It feels so good," she says to DX. "We're injectin' more 'breakin' rules' in music."
Along with the current, the holder trio has released a video for "Fly water Bed," which follows the previously released singles, "Octagon Octagon" and "Area 54."
Directed by Joel Knoernschild, the visual, take notes from age of Kung-Fu flicks, and stars Q Dan and Keith at a temple in Tokyo, the evaluation of the martial arts skills of a tea master. At the same time, the Interpol, Paul Banks, and a paper dragon to help Keith with the voice through a marijuana haze.
Q-Bert reveals that there is a problem with the final product.
"The first solo in "give Testimony IV' is exactly the same as just the second solo, and the first of them was inserted out of rhythm," Q-Bert, he admits. "[Dan] said that it was an accident, so he is going to fix it for the iTunes and download versions. But the version of the album will be a collection object, now with this as a printing mistake [laughter]."
Moosebumps: An Exploration In the Modern Days of Horripilation is expected to arrive on the 6th of April.
