aka Kool Keith / prod.by Kut Masta Kurt, except track 8 by TomC3 / ft. Motion Man, Fathed & Denis Deft / The return of groundbreaking lyricist Kool Keith of Ultramagnetic MC's fame under his infamous moniker Dr.Doom / limited vinyl, note increased price!|
After single-handedly redefining “warped” as the mind and mouth behind the
Bronx-based Ultramagnetic MC’s, “Kool” Keith Thornton, aka Rhythm X, aka
Dr. Octagon, aka Dr. Dooom, headed for the outer reaches of the
stratosphere with a variety of solo projects. A onetime psychiatric patient at
Bellevue, Keith’s lyrical thematics remained as free-flowing here as they ever
were with the N.Y. trio, connecting up complex meters with fierce,
layers-deep metaphors and veiled criticisms of those who “water down the
sound that comes from the ghetto.”
2008 will see the return of Dr Dooom, produced by KutMasta Kurt. This
album will be huge! One of the more underrated producers and DJs in the
West Coast underground, KutMasta Kurt initially made his name working
with Kool Keith, during which time he first donned his trademark Mexican
wrestling mask. Kurt began DJing in the Bay Area. As his reputation grew,
local MCs began to approach him about producing tracks. Kurt bought
some basic studio equipment and taught himself to use it. After a few
remixes for the likes of Tim Dog, Buju Banton and Mic Geronimo, Kurt’s
friendship with the groundbreaking, underappreciated Ultramagnetic MC’s
paid off when, in 1994, ex-leader Kool Keith tapped Kurt to handle DJ and
production duties for his new solo career. Kurt produced a couple of tracks
on Keith’s landmark Dr. Octagon album, but their first full project together
was 1997’s “Sex Style”, the first album released under Keith’s own name.
Kurt also helmed Keith’s album as Dr. Dooom, 1999’s “First Come, First
Served”, and 2000’s “Matthew”.
By the time “Matthew” was released, Kurt had begun to build his own career
apart from Keith. He provided remixes for the likes of the Beastie Boys,
Planet Asia, Rasco, Luscious Jackson and Blackalicious, among others. He
also formed his own label, Threshold, and in 2000 released the full-length
album “KutMasta Kurt Presents: Masters of Illusion”, a collaborative project
that featured Kool Keith and underground MC Motion Man.
Skip ahead to 2008 and the Dr. Dooom comeback. The album is titled “Dr.
Dooom 2” and it’s the type of release that everybody will be talking about.
