L.A.’s CookBook and UNO Mas are excited to unveil their latest video, “Monster Mosh” off their January 2010 release, C & U Music Factory. A twist on the classic “Monster Mash” song, “Monster Mosh” is an animated video and the brain child of CookBook himself!!!
Undoubtedly their most complete work to date, the duo’s newest LP features guest appearances by Evidence (of Dilated Peoples), Scarub (of Living Legends), DJ Rhetmattic (Beat Junkies), L.A. Symph alumns Pigeon John and Sareem Poems (aka Sharlok Poems), and vocalist Raquel Rodriguez. Production on C&U Music Factory handled largely in-house by CookBook with some help from JJ Brown, Muneshine, & Million Watts (CookBook & DJ Rif).
Like so many artists, CookBook and UNO have experienced the industry shuffle that goes along with the rap game. In ‘98, the two formed a group called LA Symphony with Pigeon John, Flynn, Joey the Jerk, and Sharlok Poems. In `99, the group’s critically acclaimed debut album, Composition No. 1, catapulted them into the national spotlight. Since then, they’ve released five full-lengths, and two EPs. The last record, Unleashed, was released in 2007. Although the group is planning a reunion someday in the future, CookBook and UNO Mas stay busy at “the factory” churning out new projects of their own. Together they’ve released Stereo-types (2001), Robertson Bullies (2006), While they Slept (2006). Their fifth LP, The Overflow, resulted in 40,000
hits by the first five months. Last year, CookBook released a critically acclaimed, a retro themed concept album, I Love the 80s.
