LP - Black Vinyl. This special release will feature Kool Keith and Ced Gee performing classic Ultramagnetic MCs songs, and sharing stories and history about the making of their iconoclastic catalogue.

Ced Gee and Kool Keith, both members of the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's, regroup for a new Ultramagnetic MC's record. Arising from the Boogie Down Bronx in the mid-80s as a far-flung hip-hop trio with a heap of new ideas to try out, Ultramagnetics Kool Keith, Ced Gee, and DJ Moe Love occupy something of a singular place in the old-school pantheon. Combining funk-heavy tracks with jeep-rocking beats and obscure lyrical references, Ultramagnetic MCs have a list of firsts to their credit: the first rap group to employ a sampler as an instrument, the first to feature extensive use of live instrumentation, the first to feature a former psychiatric patient (Kool Keith) on the mic.

Early singles like "Something Else" and "Space Groove" were blockparty staples and created waves in the underground, eventually landing the group on the disco-dominated Next Plateau label, where they released their debut. The following years found the group shuffling from label to label, releasing albums on Mercury and Wild Pitch before their eventual split in pursuit of new projects. This special release will feature Kool Keith and Ced Gee performing classic Ultramagnetic MCs songs, and sharing stories and history about the making of their iconoclastic catalogue.
