Toronto artist/producer More Or Les drops the Nerd Love album & video
Toronto DJ, Producer, Rap veteran More Or Les returns after the critically-acclaimed 2016 release Blow The Fuck Up But Stay Humble and 2017 B-Movie-inspired beat tape Big Lunch in Little China with a nerd/geek-focused album appropriately titled Nerd Love, released by left-of-centre indie rap label Hand’Solo Records.
Nerd Love is full of fun things like Gymkata (“Skill of Gymnastics, Kill of Karate”), giant robots (“Double Tomahawk” with Jesse Dangerously), Dungeons & Dragons (“Roll the Dice” with int eighty and Mikal kHill), and Star Trek (“Klingon Neighbours” and “Picard Maneuver” with Touch, Timbuktu and Wordburglar), plus more geeky topics.
Additional features include sultry Sunshine State vocalist Alezandria Coldevin, with a groovy dance interpretation of “Fly Me to the Moon,” popularized by the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, plus Nerdcore Rap champion LEX the Lexicon Artist (X-Men-inspired “Danger Room”) and Billboard-charting, Guinness Book record-holding Mega Ran (“Hidden in Plain Sight,” discussing the representation of POC in entertainment media), as well as additional production from Abstract Artform and Klopfenpop.
