Strange Powers returns...

It's been a little while since we heard from producer and MC Strange Powers (known to some as Shag One). But Powers is slowly getting back into the fold after working in the background with a variety of artists, plus using an alias on a variety of other music projects.

"Right now I'm working on my label Broken Beaker Records, gearing up for the MC Entity release," he says. "I've done some production for that, as well as mastering it and putting it out through our digital distribution. Plus focusing on the beats for and producing the Africa Sam album, so that's keeping me busy currently."

But you can also expect albums from his side projects Silly Humans (, The Strange Us (, and Sugar Bleep ( As far as his own album, he's currently working on that as well and has given us a taste through the song "The Dedicated Few." Check it out below:
