KOOL KEITH aka DR. OCTAGON

 An original member of New York's new-school pioneers the Ultramagnetic MCs, Thornton is best known as a solo rapper. His signature style is stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow and complex vocals, two skills that earn him a perennial nod from the underground hip-hop community. The average Kool Keith album is peppered with bizarre, disjointed, even delusional or disassociated themes, concepts, and references. Nearly all of his albums incorporate a satirical dislike for more commercialized strains of hip-hop, as well as major record labels. Kool Keith's website

BLOWFLY

Blowfly is the X-rated alter ego of Clarence Reid, a songwriter/producer who had quite a bit of success under his own name in the '70s, writing and producing hits for Gwen MacRae, KC & the Sunshine Band, Betty Wright, and others while on the staff at the preeminent Florida disco label of the era, TK Records. It's as Blowfly that Reid is best remembered in certain circles, though. The Redd Foxx of the Southern soul circuit, Blowfly specializes in dirty parodies of current soul and pop hits; his over two dozen albums, almost all of them recorded live in the studio with the ambience of a liquor-fueled all-night party, are an entertaining mixture of filth and wit that's neither too disgusting to be funny nor too refined to be dirty.

2012 and 2013 will see the next step in Blowfly’s 40 year +corruption of the music world. "BLACK IN THE SACK," Blowfly's first studio album in six years is due to drop in November 2012 on PATAC Records. It is a hilarious romp through soul music history, which hilariously perverts the work of Sam Cooke and Michael Jackson -- while messing up living legends AC/DC and the Gap Band. Blowfly spares no one, even himself, with a take of his Clarence Reid classic "Chicken Hawk" entitled "Dirty Chicken." Blowfly's website
