Pioneering rapper Too $hort is going EDM with his newest project, an 11 track LP, Weird Science. On San Francisco imprint, MalLabel Music, the project features one original track and 10 remixes all featuring Short Dog and rapper Oh Blimey–who was recently featured in Spin’s “50 Biggest Moments in White Girl Rap of All Time”–trading verses over a selection of EDM producers. The title track is produced by Bay Area’s El Diablo.
Other remixers on Weird Science include: Dirt Monkey x Omega, Psymbionic x Wolf-e-Wolf, Samples, AHAB, S.P.E.C.T.R.E, Timmy Tutone, Skulltrane, Smash & Grab, Trevor Kelly and Mochipet, who’s BPM’s range from Trap, Dubstep, Future Bass, Juke, House, and Experimental.
“A Too $hort/MalLabel collaboration was the natural next step,” explains Mal, founder of MalLabel Music. “After years incorporating hip-hop into our events and our label releases–plus with the rise of trap music–I knew having a rapper like Too $hort on board would work with our audience.”
MalLabel is also collaborating with community-conscious clothing line Grassroots California with a limited edition hat that includes a free download of Weird Science with purchase.
Weird Science will be available March 25, 2014.
