Kool Keith and Dan the Automator Announce Dr. Octagon Box Set

Kool Keith and Dan The Automator have announced a reissue of 1996’s Dr. Octagonecologyst, their debut album under the Dr. Octagon moniker. The 28-keep track of set arrives in the form of 3 LPs in an octagonal box. The release, out early May possibly via Get On Down, includes previously unreleased product from the primary Dr. Octagon sessions. It follows Kool Keith’s album from previous year, Feature Magnetic. The previous LP released under the Dr. Octagon title was 2006’s The Return of Dr. Octagon.

In a press release, Dan claimed:

Dr. Octagonecologyst is a traditional document for what it is, but it’s not a traditional hip-hop document. I’m not really sure if it’s deemed a hip-hop document at all. We experienced to do a great deal just to get that document out there. That in alone was a bit of a monumental accomplishment. I suggest, we built a document that, ostensibly, there was no marketplace for. A great deal of weird persons arrived out of the woodwork and loved it.

Keith extra: “Other groups may possibly have needed to be on drugs to attempt a document like Dr. Octagon, but I was ingesting potato chips when we built it. Yoo-Hoos and donuts. It was a person significant spaceship and everyone was riding. Me and Automator had been Mr. Spock and Captain Kirk.”
