Ultramagnetic MCs are back.
Known for their abstract and futuristic style, Kool Keith and Ced Gee pioneered the New York Hip-Hop sound in the ‘80s alongside contemporaries such as KRS One and LL Cool J, before disbanding in the mid 1990s. Bolstering a long, genre-spanning solo career Kool Keith cemented his legacy in the Hip-Hop, Punk and Electronic music circles with thematic albums under aliases such as Dr. Octagon, Dr. Dooom and Black Elvis, while Ced Gee stayed mostly behind the scenes providing production work for iconic artists including The Prodigy and Lee "Scratch" Perry. Backing the legendary duo is Nashville-based oddball band THETAN, who provided the entire instrumentation for the recent Kool Keith collaborative album 'Space Goretex'.
This 12” single offers up two brand new tracks of spaced out funky hip hop. The B-side is emblazoned with an etching of the Ultramagnetic MCs logo, engraved by none other than Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering.
