Bonded by a Penn State University connection and a penchant for smart raps, Random (aka Mega Ran) and Louis Logic will be hitting the road this March to and from the SXSW and PAX East festivals.
After 7 years of radio silence, music study, extensive touring and artistic exploration, louis logic will follow up 2006’s collaborative record with J.J. Brown, “Misery Loves Comedy”, with his first self-produced album on progressive indie label Fake Four Inc. Titled louis logic “Look On The Blight Side”, it’s a rap record written in an indie pop singer/songwriter style completely sample free, with original arrangements written and played by Louis. This dark collection of songs gives fans a revealing look into his long journey of self discovery. Louis takes to the road beginning in late winter of 2013 to start sharing songs from the new album live in preparation for his summer release. Check out the first shared song from the album, “A Day Late And A Dollar Short” at www.fakefourinc.com now.
Teacher-turned-rapper Random aka Mega Ran’s journey into music has taken him farther down the rabbit hole than ever imagined, with extensive tours, and releases coming at rapid fire rates. After turning heads with video game projects “Forever Famicom” with K-Murdock (2010) and “Black Materia” with Lost Perception (2011, 2012), 2013 sees Ran at his most active; releasing monthly challenge EP’s with DJ DN3, as well as touring both coasts furiously. Ran is working on a mixtape, a book and video game soundtracking for several indie titles, as well as setting up a Sega tribute album for the end of the year.
