PHOENIX, AZ – Not even a month after his successful west coast run with Mr. Miranda, Mouse Powell and DJ DN3, Teacher/Rapper/Hero Random, aka Mega Ran will be continuing his election themed “The Campaign Tour” run with stops in the Southwest, with critically acclaimed producer K-Murdock on board for this stretch.

Mega Ran and K-Murdock released the 2010 record “Forever Famicom” together to rave reviews from gaming and hip hop sources and have just announced a major power move, in the form of a partnership with gaming giant SEGA, who will assist them in creating a follow-up album in 2013, tentatively titled “Project: Dream Master.”

Ran and K’s last tour together was as support on the successful “Race Wars Tour” with mc chris in 2011, hitting 46 US cities in 54 days and rocking to a total attendance of over 12,000. "Ran is such a hard worker, so I've just been trying to catch up. I look forward to meeting the fans and rocking out one more time,” Murdock says. The producer for former Rawkus Records group Panacea is working on several new projects in 2013 in addition to “Project Dream Master.”

Random’s new video for “Zombie High” is out now, and the final piece of his ultra conceptual album/video game/comic book project “Language Arts, Volume 3” will release November 18, mixed and mastered by K-Murdock. The tour will take the duo from San Diego to Houston, bringing Ran’s high energy and clean fun to the Southwest. A Midwest and east coast tour will follow in 2013.

Since Sun & CTC Crazy have been everywhere & worked with everybody this year it only made sense they collaborated. This anthemic track at once offers up an infectious look at a party on Yam Street, while warning of the consequences for misbehavior.

JR SWIFT is a young producer hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina via Virginia Beach, Virginia. Music is his life considering his father Jay Swift has worked with many underground Hip Hop acts including Kool G Rap, Papoose, Canibus, and Awon to name a few. JR provides a soulful throwback to a more playful era in music finding inspiration in Neo Soul Music, Jazz, and R&B. Most notably he channels the late J Dilla, Madlib, Q-Tip, and Flying Lotus to create this remarkable instrumental Soul & Party Beat Tape. It is the type of listen you can throw on and not skip one track because everything has such a cohesive groove. I hope you all find the time to post this wonderful effort coming from the young producer. He thanks you all for the support and sends warm regards.
