Before we get to today's challenge, the twenty seventh mission of the March of Scrubs, let's check out the artist spotlight for today, March 27th: Torrentz:
Remember… remember… the 5th of November?
On the 5th of November 2009, two Nerdcore artists that met on the boards of Rhymetorrents.org (currently Nerdcore Now) submitted their first Songfight track "Welcome Home Frank." Although that particular entry didn't win, it did pave the way for one of the first Nerdcore Supergroups, Torrentz. London-based producer / rapper Milk-Plus and his US counterpart Fatback Supreme continued to write and record, submitting regularly to Songfight, while recruiting a host of fresh rap talent from the Nerdcore community to feature on their tracks. GameMusic4All Records picked up their debut EP "Let's Get Bloody," and it was officially released in April 2010.
The transatlantic divide between founders Milk-Plus and Fatback Supreme defined Torrentz as an internet recording act from the outset and without the pressures of taking the show on the road, they were able to focus on creating an expanding collective. More than anything else, Torrentz is a producer collective with each member using his or her abilities as a multi-instrumentalist, beatsmith, emcee, producer, and singer to showcase an ever-increasing arsenal of collaborators. "At any given time, it changes form, turning from one firetruck of artists into a giant robot made up of other artists" has been one of the more colourful attempts to describe the band.
In 2011, Torrentz stepped up a gear, firstly by welcoming Seattle-based Nerdcore and Chiptune Maestro Klopfenpop to the core member fold, while also signing to Scrub Club Records and releasing their first food-related concept album "The Big Kahuna."
Having featured an international cast of Hip Hop veterans and up-and-comers alike (such as Beefy, Whoremoans, The Ranger, Billy The Fridge, Marc With a C, et al), over 25 guest artists have appeared on Torrentz songs after just two albums.
There are four things Torrentz is about:
1. Great music.
3. Free music.
These values made Torrentz and Scrub Club an almost inevitable fit.
