Kickstarter and Capcom present The Bits and Rhymes Tour


Philly born, Phoenix resident Teacher-Rapper-Hero RANDOM aka MEGA RAN and DC based producer K-MURDOCK of Panacea are ready to embark on a Southwest to Southeast tour starting November 12, 2010.

PHOENIX, AZ,– Hot off the heels of their successful album Forever Famicom, Teacher/rapper Random and producer K-Murdock are taking their show on the road.

The Bits and Rhymes Tour will feature Ran and K doing what they do best, rocking crowds with their 8-bit beats and high tech vocals, and will feature guest artists, such as YouTube favorite Brentalfloss, TX rap group Crew 54, videogame cover band The One Ups and many other nerdcore and hip-hop stars. Random’s high-energy set always contains some surprises, such as his mind-blowing freestyle, where crowd participation drives the length and theme of the song.

Ran and K’s innovative album Forever Famicom released on June 1, 2010 and has managed to tap into a fanbase never before explored on such a large scale, the gamers and the hip-hop fans. The album has garnered high praise from top Hip-Hop sites all over the world, key publications (Philadelphia Daily News, Phoenix New Times) as well as the top videogame sites and publications, including Nintendo Power magazine.

The fan support has been phenomenal, and thanks to their donations through Kickstarter, Ran and K are planning a vinyl and DVD release of the Forever Famicom album and sprite videos. The tour will begin on 11/12/10 in Austin, TX, and ends 11/21/10 in Miami, FL.

Since the release of Forever Famicom, Ran and K have each dropped new solo releases. Random’s HEROES vol.1 and K-Murdock’s DECADENSE are available now.

John Blu Biography

Infectious beats and sexy, sultry lyrics describe the sound of John Blu. His words have the ability to take his listener’s for a ride with stories about his appreciation for women. With songs like “In Love Wit Yo Booty” and “Nicknames” he recounts his experiences and love of women from their “sexy ass nicknames” to their “backside.”
Women may be the driving force for his music however it is his ambition, compelling yet subtle nature and enormous talent that got him to where he is today.  Discovering his talent at an adolescent age while singing in the church, this Chicago‐bred artist knew music was in his DNA. Growing up he continued to pursue his passion by learning to play the keyboard and percussion instruments at the same time, performing with a jazz band regularly. Fast forward to today, only a few years later and he has now become a quadruple threat as a singer, songwriter, producer and composer. With his incredible set of skills, he is able create a song, from start to finish, in a single recording session.
Always looking to perfect his stage act, John Blu puts the stage second to only the studio as he tours across the country regularly performing with other artists in the industry including Jeremiah and Willie of MTV’s Day 26. In addition to perfecting his show piece, he has two full studio projects complete, “Reverse Psychology” and “Undiscovered” and is currently working on his third.
Nicknamed the “Collabo King” by his peers and the self‐pronounced R&B Bully, he has collaborated with several musicians executing flawless and innovative production, songwriting, arranging, and of course blessing numerous tracks with his vocals on their projects. And yet it doesn’t stop there. Blu has his own production company, J‐Blu Music, and is the co‐founder of Singles R Us, where local artists come together to network, create and perfect their craft.
As John Blu navigates his way through the industry, he is carving out a piece for himself through talent, dedication and humility setting himself up as the next acclaimed artist and producer with talent that will carry him a lifetime. While he is currently working and teaming up with various artists, including artists on Atlantic Records’ roster, he continues to promote his current single, “In Love Wit Yo Booty” that is heavy rotation in several markets including Chicago and Atlanta.

With an organic appeal with women and relatable lyrics for men, a self‐taught guru in the studio and charismatic persona, get used to hearing of and about John Blu, he is not going anywhere any time soon.
