    More deconstructing sounds from 3:33's upcoming debut."333n4"a eerie breakbeat twisting track inspired by the sounds of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, turning into a disturbing display of boom-bap.  Bonus vocal version featurings the acid tab dipped vocals of Del The Funky Homosapien & Tame One.
     

    Download First Single 333EP1 (Mediafire)

    Too frequently, experimental music has automatically fallen under the generic label of “new” or “different”.  Perhaps what is needed is a return to primitive principles, a devolution of sorts. 3:33 is a group that looks to do just that. Evolving from the groundwork of Musique Concrete composers like Pierre Shaeffer and John Cage, their music is tense and fiercely experiential; a roller coaster ride through moody beats, haunting jangles, and shrieks that will disquiet the soul. Their sounds are other-worldly, guttural, deeply primal, and sometimes mad; 3:33 masterfully brings this motley of noises into communion, and the listener is transported into a world of dark imaginings. Whether entrancing the listener with bone rocking percussion or sending shivers down the spine, the music spins itself seamlessly together into a masterpiece of purposeful chaos. Spinning wild tales, opening trap doors, and shedding light into dark recesses of the soul, the soundscape ultimately leaves the listener with a sense of unnamable disquietude.
           
    3:33 shrouds its identity in mystery, letting the music speak for itself. The group is currently working with Parallel Thought, which has created a solid reputation over the past decade for their work with underground hip-hop notables such as MF Doom, Aesop Rock, and most recently Del the Funky Homosapien. Parallel Thought believes 3:33will introduce the world to a new style of music altogether, pushing the boundaries of experimentation by sending their audience into an abyss of musical discord.

    Video: Mega Ran and K-Murdock - "Forever"

    When Philly MC and teacher Random donned the "Mega Ran" moniker and began rhyming over classic video game samples, no one would've guessed it would have worked out well, let alone taking Ran to stages all across the world.

    Ran's project caught in the ear of Panacea producer K-Murdock, and the two began working on Forever Famicom, a 14-track journey through Nintendo bliss, which dropped in June 2010 and continues to thrive.

    Now, as the duo prepares to rock on the 25th Anniversary of the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival next month, director Mo Money shot a new video for the 3rd single off of the project, "Forever." enjoy!
