SXSW Song of the Day: Mega Ran – Splash Woman

By no means a new act, Mega Ran is known as a nerdcore rapper and frankly it’s new to me, dammit!

I’m not sure what nerdcore is but this track clearly takes samples from 8 bit video game sounds and that’s caught my ear. Don’t let the nerdy aspirations fool you, this track is no joke. The dude releases a lot of records every year and it definitely skews towards nerdy stuff. Like he has an album called Mat Mania which is about wrestling. Say what you want, but its a departure from most rap tracks, which is refreshing.

Mega Ran plays Karma Lounge on March 17.
