| Danger Mouse
NME has hailed him as "The Hottest Hip-Hop Producer in the World." Entertainment Weekly placed him 20th on their "MUST List: People & Things We Love." Q Magazine recently added him to their "Industry's 100 Most Influential People" list.
Rarely does an artist-producer in the hip hop world come out of nowhere to dominate the scene. The Brooklyn-born, Atlanta-reared Danger Mouse might soon prove to be an exception.
Danger Mouse has had an incredible year so far, receiving massive critical acclaim for his debut Danger Mouse & Jemini Ghetto Pop Life CD (SPIN magazine called it "a remarkable debut." URB magazine called it "an instant classic"). The album features guests including Tha Alkaholiks, J-Zone, Prince Po from Organized Konfusion and The Pharcyde).
Danger Mouse raised the bar on hip hop experimentalism by dropping the infamous Grey Album, which used the full vocal content of Jay-Z's Black Album, recorded over new beats and production created using the Beatles White Album as it';s sole source material. The resulting record is a unique hybrid of work, a re-interpretation being touted as the one of greatest remix albums of all time. With one million downloads in a week and ensuing battle between major record companies, the media, Internet and copyright advocates, the release of the Grey Album has been nothing less than a watershed moment for music.
Recently Danger Mouse has produced songs featuring Cee-Lo and Sadat-X for the Danger Mouse & Jemini 26" EP as well as produced the song "Garden Gnomes" for Sage Francis. He executive produced the new Prince Po album which includes tracks produced by Danger Mouse and Madlib amongst others.
Danger Mouse has recently made appearances at some of the biggest events this Summer including Coachella and Bonnaroo.
Current projects include his remix of the Zero 7 single "Somersault" featuring MF DOOM as well as an upcoming remix of N.E.R.D.'s song "Maybe."
Danger Mouse is currently producing array of artists including Gorillaz, MF Doom, and Tha Alkaholiks as well as remixing Tweaker "Ruby" featuring Will Oldham.
