MC Wreckshin - Dubstep is Magic album release

Been a while since I wrote, been even longer since I wrote about nerdcore. Leave it to MC Wreckshin to mold together just the right amount of swag and insanity to bring me back into the fold. Listen to this while rolling hard down the boulevard, or while watching sports montages.

GM4A Records presents Torrentz - Let's Get Bloody debut EP

GM4A Records is very excited to announce the debut release of Nerdcore supergroup Torrentz. The group, comprised of a constantly shifting and rotating group of nerdcore rappers has collected together six tracks, both brand new, and from their illustrious SongFight career. The album is now available for free download and listening.

Download free now from the official download page.

The album covers a lot of ground in 6 short tracks. Taking on subjects as varying as zombies, fighting, and as the opening track Skankenstein suggests... well, I think the title gives you an idea. And with a dozen nerdcore rappers both seasoned and new, the album is both a who's who, as well as a great introduction to the next wave of nerdcore rappers.

Halloween Hip Hop: In Transylvania by Neally and DJ Dig Dug & Rhyme Torrents Halloween v4


Not content to do just one song, nerdcore duo Neally and DJ Dig Dug saw fit to make an entire Halloween EP. In Transylvania is that EP, containing six songs full of scary samples, awesome raps, and rocking beats. I Now Say kicks things off featuring the requisite tribute to Dracula filled with ridiculous lyrics and classic vampire clips. Warped sounds bring us into Soda Pop Rocks, which, as the title indicates, has to do with the horrors of drinking Soda with Pop Rocks. The winding lo-fi tune works great for this short and clever tune. Definitely a stand out track on this EP.

The third track, Autumn Moon takes another twist, opening with some haunting vocals, setting up the werewolf fueled premise of this song. The song then switches to a rapping style, and does a great job making sure the switch offs between the somber singing and more in your face rapping run together very well. The music side of the song is on the simple side, using mostly drums and synths, but interspercing it with howls and haunting violins to great effect. This brings us to my favorite track on the album, My Zombie Girlfriend (featuring Lakeside). Starting out with a soft rocking guitar, drums, vocals combo, the song then shifts to an electronic chorus which continues to hold in the harder rocking second verse. The song itself is a surprisingly love filled track about a man and his girlfriend. Zombies as a metaphor for whatever else people want to inject in it's place is a well known movie idea. Neally and DJ Dig Dug along with female vocalist Lakeside use this idea to their advantage to create a nerdy romantic song that keeps from easily treading into cliche territory.

The album steps back into the more ridiculous with Nymphomancer. With a chorus of "I'm a level ninety-nine mother fuckin' nymphomancer / Before you ask your questions I can give you all the answers." the song plays up the angle of the necromancing playboy. The album comes to an end with the title track In Transylvania which gives a hard rocking hip hop historical tour of Dracula's home town. The song build and builds, spiraling into a rauckus track, which peters out at the very and brings the EP to a close.

This album has been getting quite a few plays in my iTunes lately and I very much suggest you check it out. You can download the album free at Neally and DJ Dig Dug's website neallydjdigdug.com.

Letters VS Numbers episode 007: "Together Again for the First Time"

Oh man! We haven't gotten a podcast to you in nearly a month. Well I assure you this one more than makes up for it! Enjoy Letters VS Numbers episode 007: "Together Again for the First Time" Which is the first of two Nerdapalooza specials! As you may know, July 4th and 5th saw a huge gathering of nerdcore known as Nerdapalooza Southeast. 300 nerdy music lovers descended on Orlando, Florida to party, rock out, and, of course, act incredibly nerdy.

As you may also know, MisterB is from the UK (you know, the accent and everything). And I reside in California, so hanging out isn't something we oft have the chance to do, BUT, thanks to Nerdapalooza, we hung out for the first time ever, in history! This meant that, come hell or high water, we would do a podcast together. This is the first of two podcasts we actually did, in person. We recorded at the now famed Emergency Pizza Party house, within MC Wreckshin's former closet, now turned recording room. This specific recording took place at the afterparty for the Nerdapalooza Pre-Show thrown by A Comic Shop on 07/03/08.

Since it was an afterparty, people are a little drunk, pretty tired, and very excited for the first day of Nerdapalooza which was less then twelve hours from this recording. We forgo with the regular duties of emails, news, etc. Mostly because we had no real internet access out there, but also to make room for more Nerdapalooza mayhem, and this is a lengthier than normal episode, but there were many monumentous occasions to celebrate, and we hope you indulge us! Enjoy!
