Adult Swim and Chocolate Industries Serve Up a Sweet Free EP
Adult Swim (Cartoon Network’s block of animated TV shows for “mature” adults) and hip-hop indie Chocolate Industries join forces for the first time this summer to release a free EP called Chocolate Swim. Six mp3s are downloadable now at adultswim.com, including originals and new remixes from artists Lady Sovereign and Mos Def, as well as an exclusive art book.
This isn’t the channel’s first attempt to reach out to hip-hop heads; following the success of October 2005’s skit-filled DangerDOOM: The Mouse and The Mask (Epitaph), Cartoon Network is also planning a collaborative album with indie stalwarts Stones Throw to be released in September.
In the meantime, don’t get too tied up watching scheming toddler masterminds try to take over the world or talking fast food items battle villains: Chocolate Swim is only available until July 26, 2006.
