Blue Bomber's Back Mega Ran Com: Mission

Random: After finishing up a successful Kickstarter campaign, teacher, rapper and gamer MEGA RAN is prepared to release the first of many unique stretch goals, a full album of Mega Man sampled tracks, done by commission, aptly titled "Mega Ran Com: Mission."

The title is a play on the Command Mission title, released in 2004 on the PS2 and GameCube systems. The new album will sample from classic titles from Mega Man 2 all the way up to Mega Man & Bass. Overclocked Records, the company spawned from the community site OCRemix, will be assisting with digital distribution.

Physical CDs however, can be pre-purchased here:

"I'm excited to return to my roots," Ran says from the studio. I tossed out the idea of returning to Mega Man and the fam was down. I got back into the lab and we made some really fun jams."

"Mega Ran Com: Mission" will release on Christmas Day 2014. Kickstarter backers will get this album in their inboxes early, but for the rest of you, Ran released a leak from the project, the track "Stage Start" featuring Storyville. That video can be seen here:

Also just announced: President Gator Records will release a limited 10" vinyl record featuring VGM originators THE MINIBOSSES doing their famous Mega Man 2 medley, and on side B, Mega Ran's hit track "Splash Woman," as well as a previously unreleased track. That can be ordered here.

Video: Stimulus - "Old Me"

Matt: For his latest music video, Brooklyn-born rapper/DJ/producer/style-guru and longtime globetrotter Stimulus set out to recreate Hendrix’s travels in Casablanca. Stim, who’s most recently been cruising the world in support of his new Stimmi Hendrix project, released a five-track homage to Hendrix last month. The video for “Old Me” was shot on location in Casablanca and Marakesh and it follows Stim (and his Stimmi Hendrix persona) around during the ten-day “L’Boulevard” music and arts festival.

Video: DraZ - "Isaiah Speaks"

Amani: Back in the summer Chicago Emcee DraZ delivered some feel good hip hop on his official "return" to hip hop single "I Want It All" with Twista's singer/songwriter GRITZ, today he's back with a darker visual, "Isaiah Speaks" which touches on his credibility as an emcee and trials with loyalty.
