Ever since first laying eyes and ears on Rad Omen, an inordinate amount of friends and fans of this here outlet contacted me to see if I would in fact be posting this up. See, "rad" in every sense of the word, is literally used in my day-to-day phrasings more than any other descriptor. I mean, it technically, kind of IS my last name too. Don't believe me? Bounce here. Legit.
So does a befitting name and track title warrant exposure here? Well, duh, obviously, since I'm writing about it now. Let's explore!
Rad Omen is, in fact, the side project of DJ Troublemaker...a gnarly dude who is no stranger to many a post here in my bloggy little world. Pairing harmonically synchronized and synthesized vocals over a simple, yet effective beat, the solitary release, Rad Anthem, is without a doubt, aptly titled.
Here are some words direct from the source:
Born out of the mouths of wolves and serpents. Raised up by degenerates and whores in the gutters of your forgotten cities. Among the spawn of your outcast, your rebuked, your lepers. Breaking bread with gangsters, hustlers, real motherfuckers. Scorned by your fearful leaders, and your simple masses. Bearing no marking, no number, no names.
Only one sign, the Rad Omen.
