Ahead of Kool Keith’s new solo album, Feature Magnetic, he has released his new single “Super Hero,” featuring the underground masked legend, MF Doom. Two of the great pioneers of style in hip-hop join forces on, “Super Hero,” a spacey and dreamlike track, produced by Kool Keith himself, Number One Producer. Keith and Doom trade comic fiction, childhood fantasies meet adult conflict. The beat is deep bass and wobbly synths, drum loops and reverberating cymbals. Feature Magnetic is out September 16, 2016.
In a world full of cheesecake rappers, one man has assembled a team to bring you madness. So stop stop what you’re doing and get ready for a journey you’ve never taken before. Enter the sinister doctor, the Ultramagnetic visionary, Kool Keith, whose Feature Magnetic is his latest bizarre transformative odyssey. The album was primarily produced by Number One Producer.
As always, Keith seems unstuck in time, oblivious to geography, mixed unflinchingly grim details with surreal, fantastical tangents. He’s from the Bronx, but belongs to far-reaching astral dimensions. And Where many of his contemporaries have become legacy acts or revivalists, Keith continues to originate and perfect his wild style. He’s parked behind Oracle Arena in Oakland with Norah Jones — riding a horse and carriage through Central Park (bystanders shout that he looks like Mike Tyson). He drinks with MF DOOM in dusty London basement and recruits a legendary squadron of fellow travelers including Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Bumpy Knuckles, Boston pioneer Ed O.G., Slug from Atmosphere, and Mac Mall.
