Machina Muerte CEO Partners With Wavves Drummer For First Single


19 January 2011 No Comment

Rapper Isaiah Toothtaker is prepping the release of his latest album, Illuminati Thug Mafia, to be released January 25th through a partnership with Toothtaker’s own Machina Muerte label and Alpha Pup Records. With Wavves drummer Jacob Safari behind the board, the two flip 2010 internet phenomenon Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder” song upside down.

Eschewing the ringtone-y iTunes version for North Carolina A&T’s marching band’s interpretation, Toothtaker and Safari concoct a flurry of horn stabs, soaring sirens, and bullet-ridden rolling percussion that hit like a jab from Toothtaker himself.

The song provides a perfectly dark soundscape to match Isaiah’s menacing lyrics and his gruesomely NSFW video.

“Intruder” is the debut single from Isaiah Toothtaker’s newest album Illuminati Thug Mafia which is set for release on January 25th via Machina Muerte/Alpha Pup. Run and tell that, homeboy.

About Isaiah Toothtaker:

Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona in a broken home, Isaiah Toothtaker was kicked out at age 11 and quickly learned to defend himself, often resorting to violence.  Throughout his violent young adulthood, Isaiah relied on music to identify with and it provided the soundtrack to his teenage antics of stealing cassettes and walkmans and riding the public transport all city to tag, battle rap, sell dime bags and acid tabs, and fist fight.

He began tattooing under the tutelage of the local Hells Angels, leading him to open his own parlor,  STARING WITHOUT CARING, which has won numerous Best in City awards over the years.  Throughout all the trouble, Isaiah has been able to duck or beat charges, until recently, when he landed multiple violent felonies on record.  Built from misery and built to destroy, he has since co-founded the label Machina Muerte with Mestizo, the duo also forming the group HUMASUIT.

Since 2001, Isaiah has independently released one EP and three full-length albums (one with rapper Murs) and his forthcoming album Illuminati Thug Mafia will be available January 25, 2011 via Machina Muerte/Alpha Pup Records.
