Mega Ran: RNDM
In the words of the man himself, nerd rap grows up and its wonderful. RNDM, the latest release from Mega Ran, is exactly as it says on the box: A mix of chiptune beats, tech themes, stories of personal relationships and coming up in the industry.
Far from the usual self promotion of most rap albums, RNDM paints Mega Ran as an emotionally exposed, hard working, highly educated musician with a big heart; that is willing to put in the work to achieve his goals. All while highlighting the struggle of a artist trying to go mainstream in a niche-but-growing genre.
But even with its varied personal themes and 80’s and 90’s gaming and Sci-Fi nostalgia, RNDM still comes across as a cohesive completion. Which probably has a lot to do with the tight production on each and every track.
Check out Infinite Lives, one of the standout tracks from the album.
