The bond between music and pro wrestling goes back many years starting with the Rock N Wrestling movement in the 80's, a WWE-MTV joint promotional venture, that was a major catalyst to the WWE’s monster mid-80’s success. Since then live acts at Wrestlemania and anthology theme albums have only helped the alliance grow stronger.
In a new project in the tradition of 2000’s album "WWF Aggression," producer Lynx Kinetic integrates iconic WWE entrance themes with hip hop, trap, and EDM elements, creating an expanded sonic pallet for rapper Mega Ran to do what he does best. Legends such as Macho Man Randy Savage and Jake the Snake Roberts, as well as current top talent including Brock Lesnar and Bray Wyatt get the remix treatment and a lyrical homage, entitled "Mat Mania."
Ran is dropping one of the 7 tracks per week to lead up to the release, one per Monday, called "Monday Night Ran."
Mat Mania will be available for free download March 31, right before Wrestlemania in Dallas Texas.
Mega Ran's podcast of the same name has bi-weekly episodes dedicated to classic and current moments in pro wrestling.
