The original Dr. Octagon line-up returns with a brand new full-length.

Back in 1996, rapper Kool Keith teamed up with producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and DJ Qbert of Filipino-American turntablist crew The Invisible Skratch Piklz and recorded Dr. Octagonecologyst, one of Keith’s most acclaimed releases to date.

Now, over two decades later, the original trio has re-formed and have shared the first taste of new material. Today, they premiered new single ‘Octagon Octagon’ from upcoming full-length Moosebumps: An Exploration Into Modern Day Horripilation.

This new material isn’t completely unexpected. The trio reunited last year for a handful of shows celebrating the reissue of Dr. Octagonecologyst on vinyl and FACT’s Tamara Palmer chatted to Nakamura about the reunion.
