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.
