Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard’s new series that showcases artists’ very own throwback-themed playlists exclusive to Billboard’s Spotify account. The curated set features the artists’ favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week’s spin comes from Dr. Octagon. The legendary power trio of rapper Kool Keith, producer Dan The Automator (Deltron 3030, Gorillaz), and DJ Qbert last week announced their first LP in over 20 years with the original line-up, Moosebumps: an exploration into modern day horripilation, and led by new single “Octagon Octagon.”
The album, which follows 1996’s Dr. Octagonecologyst, will be released on April 6th via Dan the Automator’s Bulk Recordings and distributed by Caroline.
To fete the group’s return, Dan The Automator curated this week’s #TBT Mixtape, described as “a sampling of songs that got me to where I am today.”
Give the playlist — which includes Kid Koala, MF DOOM, De La Soul and more — a spin below, and pre-order the new album here.
