    Dr. Dooom - First Come First Served
    Black Elvis - (I forget the CD title)
    Sinister 6000 - A Much Better Tomorrow
    Robbie Analog - Analog Bros. (Pimp to Eat)
    Clean Man - ???
    Big Willie Smith (aka Willie Biggs) - ???
    Mr. Gerbick - ???
    UltraMagnetic Mc's - numerous albums
    Kool Keith - numerous albums
    ...and countless other aliases I can't remember at the moment.
    Any info. is greatly appreciated.
    -Jason

    Thanks for the link, Alex. It may take a while, but I'm gonna try to track down what Keith has worked on. I know he's worked with Beck (but I don't know on what) and with Prodigy (on the Fat of the Land.)I just find his work very interesting.

    Also, Look for material with beats created by Dan the Automator Nakamura (who did the beats for Dr. Octagon)...
    I know Dan is doing work on an upcoming Mike Patton solo album as well as his work with Keith and Deltron and everyone else on the planet (Eels, Primal Scream, Cornershop, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, De La Soul, etc).
    He's also [supposedly] doing the score for an indie film I'm currently working on. I'm not a hip-hop fan, but a lot of the Automator stuff is worth a listen.

    Wow, I'm glad to see there are other Kool Keith fans on the board. I'll have to check out that Masters of Illusion disc. I liked what Kut Master Kurt did with Keith on Dr. Dooom.
    Dan the Automator is a terrific producer. I really like his collaboration w/ Prince Paul, the Musical Curriculum from the Handsome Boy Modeling School. That is a great album. Kid Koala's on it, DJ Shadow, Del, Mike D, Biz Markie...and so forth. I just got Gorillaz last week, and really like the Clint Eastwood track. I think he (Dan) is doing an album for 75ark records (the label Deltron/Dr. Octagon are on)with El-P, so that is another one to look forward to.
    Oh, and Prince Paul has a great CD entitled "A Prince Among Thieves," and it features Kool Keith, Everlast, De La Soul, Biz Markie, and a lot of other people.
