In Rusty Redenbacher’s two decade plus run of the Indy music scene he has successfully captured the hearts of a progressive arts community on the verge of national super stardom. His multiple releases with rock collectives Birdmen of Alcatraz and Lazarus, hip-hop groups The Mudkids and Tornado Alley and more have shown the local, regional, and national music scene the extreme versatility and dexterity it takes to be embraced by not only his peers but music lovers of all shapes, sizes, and cross-genre backgrounds.
While Rusty has performed alongside legends including the Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots, Dead Prez, Blackalicious, Atmosphere, and more, one thing is for certain, legions of Hip-Hop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, and Dubstep fans alike are ready to embrace his latest release “The Tinkerer,” which will be released on 1-31-2012 via Daddy Real Entertainment.
Deeply rooted in the classic horror culture of yesteryear, “The Tinkerer” and its 18-tracks takes the listener on a journey through the laboratory of sound and spirit known as the Iron Man Monster Factory as front man Rusty Redenbacher aka The Tinkerer utilizes a unique blend of hip-hop turntabilism and intricate cross-genre instrumentation in creating the productions behind every track featured on the album.
The lead single and video “Iron Man Monster Factory” sees Redenbacher laying a heavy set of bars over the pounding thud and crack from a loop of a Nirvana song.
PR: Traum To Release Mad Dreamz It's Only A Nightmare Album

This is the long awaited release of Traum - Mad Dreamz it's only a nightmare due out May 2012 on Masta Mix Records Featuring Cormaga, Big Noyd, Lil Fame of M.O.P. and many more. It also includes production by Traum, Ayatollah and Ric Rude. This full length Cd is the follow up to the 2009 EP. This one is full of Queens bangers as well as many radio friendly joints like Back That Ass Up and What What.
Credibility is crucial in any industry but when it comes to a music scene where "real recognize real" is the overriding mantra, New York native Traum walks it like he talks it.
Bloodlines in Hip Hop's crowded family tree can be hard to explain but Traum's pedigree is nothing short of thoroughbred: born in the Bronx, the birthplace of the genre and then raised in Queens, Traum was practically destined for his current role as one of the east coast's hottest artists and most innovative independent label bosses.
