Potholes reviewer Nicholas Candiotto had plenty of praise to dish out in his review of Random & K-Murdock’s collaborative effort, Forever Famicom. In particular, he had the following to say:
For serious gamers, the samples alone are worth the price of admission. Those same heads looking for creative production will be impressed with K-Murdock’s handling of NES samples. However, for the best tracks on Forever Famicom, the theme is irrelevant. It’s just great hip-hop. And that is something that should appeal to the masses.
Indeed, Nick, indeed. Personally, I loved this record for exactly the same reason: Yeah, the samples are absolutely awesome, especially how K-Murdock flips them yet keeps them recognizable. But in the end, it’s a solid hip-hop album that goes beyond flashy gimmickry. As such, it would make sense that the duo would take their act on the road, which is exactly what they’re doing starting this Thursday in Austin, Texas. I envy those of you able to make one of these and if you do, be sure to let us know how it was!
