Dr Octagon - The Return Of Dr Octagon LP [Casual]Kool Keith AKA Dr. Octagon, is most renowned for being in the seminal, old school NYC hip hop trio, Ultramagnetic MCs. Hailing straight out of the mean side of the Bronx, Kool Keith has redefined the conventional hip hop styles and introduced a warped, bizarre take on the genre. Always one to court controversy, Kool Keith records under many guises, often confusing and surprising his audience.

Kool Keith's early career and lyrics with the Ultramagnetic MCs often made use of his growing reputation as a somewhat unstable character, and onetime patient of Bellevue, a psychiatric hospital, where he was treated for depression.

Teaming up with Dan "the Automator" Nakamura under the name Dr. Octagon, Keith again reinvented his image, recording the self-titled ‘Dr. Octagon’ album (later reissued under the title ‘Dr. Octagonecologys’t) that was released by Mo' Wax.

Finally, back again to shock and thrill us after years out in the wilderness, Dr. Octagon, goes straight for the jugular with the release of his highly anticipated new album, ‘The Return of Dr. Octagon’. Spliced and diced together by the man, Kool Keith, himself and slickly produced by clued up production trio, One Watt Sun, this looks set for some playlist domination.

The One Watt Sun collective, (consisting of John, Ben and Simon) were brought on as the producers. They recorded ‘The Return of Dr. Octagon‘ in a twelfth century turret in the old quarter of Prague, as well as Byron Bay and Melbourne in Australia, and also at One Watt Sun’s current studio space in Berlin. Their musical style as showcased via the new Dr Octagon record is like a morphing twisted intelligent organism, an animal yet to be named.  They enlisted the additional talents of DJ Dexter (the Avalanches) for the Egyptian scratch flavour of Ants and Princess Superstar who features on the song ‚‘Eat It‘.

The new single, 'Aliens', is released on 17th October and the second single 'Trees' is out on 9th January 2006. The release of ‘The Return of Dr. Octagon’ crash-lands on 23rd January 2006.

Time to unlock your speakers for another aural assault of twisted lyrics and mad beats. Don’t miss.
