North American hip-hop artist Random AKA Mega Ran is well known on the music scene thanks to his cutting edge retro-styled beats. Since the creation of his alter-ego Mega Ran, this former teacher has become one of the premier artists in hip-hop’s nerdcore genre, released multiple albums, secured a licensing deal with Capcom and toured the world doing what he loves. Not bad for a guy who started out sampling video games for his own personal enjoyment.
While Random has a packed itinerary, we thought his upcoming UK tour dates deserved a special mention:
- 5th September - ALCon 2014 - Leicester
- 6th September - Centre for Computing History - Cambridge
- 7th September - The Roxy - Glasgow
- 9th September - Surya - London
- 10th September - Kawaii Cafe - Paris (yep, we know that France is not in the UK!)
- 12th September - Superbyte 2014 - Manchester
The gig at the excellent Centre for Computing History in Cambridge which is supported by the British IBM and electro-rapper MC iPod looks set to provide a great evening of uplifting musical entertainment.
