Dr. Octagon Shares Area 54 From Upcoming Album

Kool Keith announced a few weeks ago that he was reviving his Dr. Octagon persona after putting it to rest 22 years ago. Moosebumps: an exploration into modern day horroripilation follows the 1996 critically acclaimed Dr. Octagonecologys. Producer Dan The Automator and DJ Qbert crafted the sounds for the first album and they have returned for the 2018 release. 

“Area 54”  is an aural peek into Moosebumps and it delivers the same kind of left field funkiness as the first album. Dan The Automator explains, 

Dr. Octagon is not a contemporary thing or a retro thing, it’s always looked to the future. 

The album will be released April 6th digitally and on CD and double LP. All physical versions of the album include an exclusive 12th track “Aviator Hype.” The official artist store will be carrying a special limited edition version of the double LP, with only 1,000 copies printed worldwide on blood splattered vinyl and alternate gatefold album art.

Rouse, along with business partner, Pernell Clark, is reputed for producing one of the largest “All Black Attire” events in the country, held for the past several years at the prestigious Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. This year, however, the duo will take a break from the Black Party and focus on Rouse’s “LA Night” event.  “LA Night” launches this year with the best of the best in comedy, live entertainment and DJ fueled dancing, offering what Rouse calls, “A Live Fresh New Perspective.”

Listen: Ozay Moore-WSTCST Feat. Tony Ozier & Teeko Produced By Tall Black Guy

Ozay Moore starts 2018 with his new album, In The Wake Of O. “WSTCST” is the newest single to emerge from the collection. Moore, Tony Ozier and Teeko provide vocals in front of Tall Black Guy’s G-Funk inspired beat. The Lansing, Michigan by way of Seattle rapper promises his hometown that he will return one day. Moore explains,

In carrying out the theme of past, present and future on In the Wake Of O, it was important to follow up the notion of contentment heard on “Where You At?” with (of course) a statement of reflection and longing. In my case, that’s to one day return home to the WSTCST (West Coast)… namely Seattle… my birthplace.”
