Needlejuice ventures into nerdcore hip-hop for the first time with the MC Lars and Mega Ran collaboration, The Dewey Decibel System.
MC Lars is the creator of post-punk laptop rap and lit-hop, which he has extended and powered into a fusion of rap, punk, rock, ska, pop and other genres. He does so with energy and wit, joined with a strong sense of humor and perspective.
A former middle school teacher, Mega Ran blends education, hip-hop and gaming in amazing new ways, penetrating the farthest reaches of the galaxy with his unique rhyme style and electric performances.
The Dewey Decibel System is an album entirely based on some of MC Lars and Mega Ran’s favorite poems, books short stories and graphic novels. Following in the footsteps of classic MC Lars tracks like “Mr Raven,” combined with Mega Ran’s blend of education and hip-hop, the album is some of the best work from the two nerdcore artists to date.
The album contains songs about Shelley’s Ozymandias, Moore’s Watchmen, Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, Poe’s Masque of the Red Death, as well as guest appearances by MC Frontalot, Schaffer the Darklord, Tribe One, Storyville, Miss Eaves and more!
