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.
