MF Doom, Dangermouse Team Up For ‘DangerDoom’

Two of the underground’s

favorite sons, Danger Mouse and MF Doom, have come together to release a collaborative

effort titled DANGERDOOM: The Mouse and the Mask.

The album was inspired by

the Cartoon Network’s series of late-night animated shows known as Adult Swim.

And according to Epitaph Records president Andy Kaulkin – who is releasing the

project – the mix of different ingredients has turned into a delectable offering.

"Danger Mouse and Doom

are both brilliant at taking chunks of pop culture and reshaping them into art.

The context of Adult Swim makes this already promising collaboration truly inspired,"

Kaulkin said.

DANGERDOOM will

feature skits and voices from Adult Swim’s popular shows, as well as special

appearances by Ghostface, Cee-Lo and Talib Kweli.

The album is slated to drop

on October 11th on Epitaph Records.

Danger Mouse is best known

for his conceptual album The Grey Album, in which he combined Jay-Z’s

Black Album and the Beatles’ White Album. He also has a collaborative

album with Cee-Lo in the works called Gnarls Barkley.

MF Doom came up

in the group KMD. After a five-year hiatus, he re-emerged as the metal-masked

MF Doom, taken from the comic super-villain Dr. Doom.

He has released

numerous critically acclaimed albums, including Operation: Doomsday and

Mmm…Food. Currently, MF Doom reportedly has a project with Ghostface

in the works.
