MF Doom X Damu The Fudgemunk
Coco Mango, Sliced & Diced
Being a Doom and Madvillain fan, Damu took to the opportunity to lay 2 remixes both inspired specifically by Madvillain's track "Rhinestone Cowboy". The results are commonly dubbed "CoCo Mango Sliced" (Power Outage Mix) and "Coco Mango Diced" (Boyscout mix). "Coco Mango Sliced" enlisted a sharp guest verse from Boston's Insight the Truncator. Fun fact: While producing the remixes, Damu lost power in his studio literally after recording a demo of the the first mix and lost the unsaved be in his MPC. That 2 track demo would become what was published, hence the 'Power Outage Mix'. Instead of recreating the exact same beat he lost, Damu took the same sample and put a different swing on it, giving us remix number 2 ('Boyscout mix'). Since its original release, these remixes have become known as 'the Doom record you've never heard' due to its short shelf life.
Though a repress would've made perfect sense in 2011, it's now 2019 and these tracks are finally getting a proper reissue. The cover art was handled by well known artist Joe Buck of De La Soul fame and pays homage to Doom using his signature hand drawn technique accenting a classic masked photo of Damu the Fudgemunk. Everything about this record screams high quality hip hop. Brought to you by one of the genre's most respected producers, Damu the Fudgemunk and Redefinition Records, fans now have an opportunity to own this gem documenting and celebrating one of our largest icons, MF Doom.
