PR: DOOMSTARKS (MF Doom & Ghostface) - "Victory Laps"

It's been five years in the making, but DOOM and Ghostface Killah are finally set to unveil their first single together as DOOMSTARKS.  Following on the heels of the limited-edition cassette tape released earlier this month, the two supervillains will release the single "Victory Laps" tomorrow (July 26th) at iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital music services.  The digital single features the previously-unheard original version of the track, plus the Madvillainz Remix (produced by DOOM and Madlib) found on the cassette tape, and instrumentals to both versions.

The single will also be available as a 12" Serato single, on picture-disc vinyl.  See details and tracklisting below.  The picture-disc is now available for pre-order here: .

Both the digital and physical versions of "Victory Laps" will be released through Metal Face Records/Nature Sounds.

PRESS RELEASE/MP3: Mega Ran Storms the UK for Tour

Teacher-turned-full time rapper RANDOM, aka MEGA RAN, after his 3rd successful Kickstarter campaign with producer K-MURDOCK, is heading overseas for shows in London and Manchester.  

Random and Murdock earned almost $6000 on the donation site Kickstarter which will be used to fund their tour, which will hit Manchester and London from July 26 to August 7.  

Random, aka Mega Ran has been dazzling audiences since his surprising transition to 8-bit influenced hip hop. After receiving an official co-sign from international gaming giant Capcom, Ran has gone on to be featured in Playstation Magazine, Nintendo Power, and on the South by Southwest (SXSW) and Nerdapalooza festivals.  

K-Murdock, a music producer and engineer from Washington, DC, worked with Random on the landmark album "Forever Famicom"  

Also joining on the tour will be other Random contributors, DN3 and Lost Perception, responsible for production on Ran's "Mega Ran" and "Black Materia" albums. They will be participating in a few beat showcases.  

Random hosts a weekly online reality show, called "Life After Lesson Plans: A Hip-Hop Reality Show," chronicling Random's daring leap from the classroom to the full time entertainer worlds. Check those out at 

The show dates are as follows: 

Tuesday, July 27 @ RetroBar, Manchester, UK 8PM

Thursday, July 28 @ Plan B, London, UK 9PM 

Friday, July 30 @ Retro Complex, London, UK 1PM-2PM

Saturday, July 31 @ Retro Complex, London, UK 1PM-2PM
