NEWS: @MegaRan's Video Game and Soundtrack


From Random a/k/a Mega Ran:

NEWS: Mega Ran's Video Game and Soundtrack

For the past 2 months, indie developers Lunar Giant Studios have been working on a video game that would effectively encompass Random, aka Mega Ran's main loves: education, hip-hop, and Mega Man. So here it is, version 1 of Mega Ran in Language Arts. 


LGS needs beta testers, so please report any bugs or crashes to bugreport@lunargiantstudios.com

Beating this difficult game will get a new song unlocked that will serve as the piece between Random's Language Arts Volume 1 and 2 projects, with Vol 2 releasing in August. 

When the game released today, so did it's soundtrack, executive produced by Ran's DJ, Mel "DN3" Raymond, who put together chip-tune 8-bit hip-hop joints, some with lyrics, some without, and featuring folks like Random, Roqy Tyraid, and more. Check that out here!


Thank you for your support of this union between indie gamers and hip-hop!

Video: Saukrates - "Tomorrow" + "Saukrates Philosophies - Part IV"


From Audible Treats:

Video: Saukrates - "Tomorrow" + "Saukrates Philosophies - Part IV"

This fall, Canadian hip-hop legend Saukrates will release his new album, Season One. Already, Soxx has released the video for the lead single, "Say I," and he followed that visual with the album's second single, "All The Way." Today, Saukrates is unveiling the album's latest single, and newest visual, for the song "Tomorrow."

There are few artists out right now with a penchant for making motivational anthems quite like Saukrates. And like "Say I" before it, "Tomorrow" comes equipped with a raucous beat and chant-along hook that reaches its climax as the chorus comes fully to a head, with Saukrates singing, "Tomorrow's mine, yeah, tomorrow's mine." The video, directed by Figgz, is a trippy affair that takes a number of rowdy, black-and-white performance shots and flips, morphs, duplicates, and melds them into a visual as exciting to watch as the song is to listen to.

In addition to the video, Saukrates is also giving fans the next installment of the "Saukrates Philosophies" webisode series. In "Saukrates Philosophies - Part IV" Soxx describes his upcoming album, his creation process and more. Watch "Part IV" here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dgzmcw0qI4Y .
