The Return of

A 14 track electro-funk album (35m 12s) — released October 23rd 2006 on Buttercuts Records

Now back in 2006 after a decade spent in the wilderness Dr. Octagon has resurfaced with a brand new album: ‘The Return Of Dr. Octagon’. Production trio One Watt Sun have picked up where Dan The Automator left off. They recorded 'The Return of Dr. Octagon' in an array of different places including a twelfth century turret in the old quarter of Prague, Byron Bay and Melbourne in Australia, as well as their current studio space in Berlin. One Watt Sun’s musical style is like a morphing twisted intelligent organism, an animal yet to be named and really suits Kool Keith’s crazy rhyming. Outstanding tunes such as the lead single ‘Aliens’ as well as other soon to be classics ‘Ants’ and ‘Trees’ never sit still for a moment, changing pitch and instruments like an orchestral conductor with amnesia! It is within their production that One Watt Sun seem to really have the ability to bring out the edginess of Keith’s lyrics, and his unstable character, (he was a onetime patient of Bellevue psychiatric hospital) only adds to the magic of The Return of Dr Octagon, Also making an appearance on the album, DJ Dexter (formerly of the Avalanches) steps in for the Egyptian scratch flavour of Ants and Princess Superstar who features on the song ''Eat It', a twisted tale of war that somehow manages to include sexual references, bizarre! It may have been a decade since the last album, but Dr. Octagon is still kicking it, what are you waiting for, check it out! 100,000 flyer campaign running up to release date, 5000 poster campaign London and 8 other citys, Radio 1 mega mix, Trees single to be released on November the 13th 2006, Video to be on MTV, Keith is meant to be playing London dates

Turbo fuelled beats, blazing synths and a charging bassline complemented by a great use of Kool Keith's twisted vocals **** - iDJ

It's clear Keith hasn't lost his sense of humour or his bizzarre (and often ingenious) lyrical style -

Odd, brilliant, irritating, I'm not quite sure. I keep playing it though! **** - Echoes
