DJ QBert's new album is the time capsule response and interstellar transmission to any galactic civilization, alien or far-future human

About this project

EXTRATERRESTRIA is DJ QBert's much-anticipated follow up to his groundbreaking debut album and feature film, Wave Twisters. Several years in the making, Extraterrestria is a wide collection of various types of music from other planets and dimensions from around the galaxy. The compilation of sounds were collected by the Galactic Skratch Federation, which is similar to the Grammy committee here on (Gaia) Earth. Featuring DJ QBert's signature skratching, the album is accompanied by several well-known musicians to boost the sonic soundscape; from world-acclaimed cellist and trombonist Dana Leong to super producer Chad Hugo of The Neptunes  / N*E*R*D fame to the eclectic instrumental exotica sounds of Tipsy. Extraterrestria transcends what turntablism is and what skratch music sounds like in the future.

GALAXXXIAN is an imported album from Earth (Gaia) to the Galactic Skratch Federation's compilation of music. It features DJ QBert's skratching with a host of talented MC's: Kool Keith, Del The Funkyhomosapien, Bambu, Soul Khan, Mr.Lif, El-P, Madchild, DZK, Roscoe Umali, Tassho Pearce, The FMD & Z-Man.

Extraterrestria and Galaxxxian are already recorded, mixed and mastered by audio engineer extraordinaire - Matt Kelley (2Pac, Digital Underground, Souls of Mischief and many more). IT'S DONE! Now it's time to deliver it to the fans on all the best media available to us.

 The PRIMARY GOALS of this project is to:

  • PRESS THE BEST SOUNDING CDS & RECORDS
  • ASSEMBLE THE MOST CAPTIVATING AND INNOVATIVE GRAMMY-WINNING ALBUM PACKAGING
  • MARKET THE ALBUM WORLDWIDE IN EVERY AVENUE POSSIBLE AND SPREAD THE DJ CULTURE FURTHER
  • RECOUP PRODUCTION, MIXING AND MASTERING EXPENSES
  • COMPENSATE THE COLLABORATING MUSICAL AND VISUAL ARTISTS

To come up with up the most captivating and innovative album packaging, we teamed-up with Brooklyn-based Morning Breath, Inc. Morning Breath is Doug Cunningham & Jason Noto. Over the past decade the two have combined their talents to create graphics for many recording artist, apparel & products, as well as many solid ad campaigns. The duo is looking to raise the bar on the album artwork for this project. "Our goal is to match QBert's artistry from a visual point of view, and leave the fans with one of the most exciting album packages to date."

With DJ QBert's partnership with Algoriddim's DJay app and Novalia's capacitive touch technology collaboration, Thud Rumble was able to conceptualize and develop the WORLD'S FIRST INTERACTIVE ALBUM PACKAGING. With this innovation, the album's gatefold cover is transformed into an actual DJ controller. By accessing DJ QBert's album (or any MP3) through the DJay app, you're able to manipulate and effect the songs with the use of the built-in controller. This feature will be available for both vinyl and CD packaging. :D

Taking our cues from Grammy Award for Best Recording Package awardees, both aesthetic and interactive features of the album packaging we're carefully designed for a truly unique and immersive medium; rivaling that of past Grammy winners.

Watch the videos below to see the concept of this amazing technology.

We didn't want to stop with just the album packaging so we extended the ideas into the Limited Edition Boxset. This is not only for the hardcore DJ QBert collectors but also for vinyl junkies and people who appreciate great album packaging.

This package includes

  • Turntable-inspired box design (what says DJ album more than a turntable right?)
  • Extraterrestria 2CD Deluxe Set (with interactive gatefold album packaging)
  • Hardbound Vinyl Book which contains more artwork, photos and interactive and hidden surprises. This book will also house the:
  • Extraterrestria 2LP Picture Disc Vinyl
  • Complete 9 Puzzle Piece Picture Disc Vinyl (each vinyl forms to combine the art piece specially designed by Dug-1 and can only be purchased as a whole in this package)

As a DJ company run by DJs, vinyl is our heart and soul. We want to make vinyl buying fun, playful and adventurous. Besides the first puzzle piece available here as a reward, the rest of the other Puzzle Piece Picture Disc Vinyl (limited number of course) would be scattered around the world through our trusted network of distributors; from the East Coast to the West Coast to Japan to Australia to UK and the rest of Europe. Maybe even our Thud Rumble online store and the merch booth at the DJ QBert show.

This is the most extensive vinyl hunt in history. Don't worry! The puzzle pieces will be priced appropriately in the market and we're giving you a little bit of help by downloading the album app to track the closest pieces to your location. Once acquired and scanned, each piece will unlock a piece of the puzzle on your device along with audio content for that particular piece. Game on!
