Danger Mouse Biography
Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical
* Attack & Release (The Black Keys) (A)
* Modern Guilt (Beck) (A)
* The Odd Couple (Gnarls Barkley) (A)
Rarely does an artist/producer come out of nowhere to dominate the scene. The New York-born, Atlanta-reared Danger Mouse might soon prove to be one such exception.
In an incredible year so far for Danger Mouse, who NME hails as “The Hottest Hip-Hop Producer in the World,” he has received massive critical acclaim for his Danger Mouse & Jemini Ghetto Pop Life CD (featuring Tha Alkaholiks, J-Zone, Prince Po from Organized Konfusion, and The Pharcyde) debut on the Lex/Warp label as well as their follow up 26” EP.
Danger Mouse received universal praise (and sparked an online rebellion, capped by over 1,000,000 downloads) for his production on the now infamous Grey Album, an experiment in music that used the full vocal content of Jay-Z’s Black Album, recorded over new beats and production created using The Beatles White Album as the sole source material. The resulting record is a unique hybrid of work, a re-interpretation being touted as the one of the great remix albums in the history of the genre.
In addition, Danger Mouse has produced songs featuring Cee-Lo and Sadat-X for the upcoming Danger Mouse remix EP as well as producing the song "Garden Gnomes" for Sage Francis.
The versatile Danger Mouse has also produced and composed music for noted television shows for the Cartoon Network including Toonami, Jax & Daxter and the upcoming Star Wars themed Clone Wars.
