Run DMT (Michael Collins) drafts drifting, atmospheric sonic collages that hover somewhere between psychedelia, J Dilla-style hip-hop, and Beach Boys-influenced pop. Collins offered the first two Run DMT albums, Bong Voyage and Get Ripped or Die Trying, as free releases online in 2009; they were also issued as limited-edition cassettes for the blog Chocolate Bobka.
The following year, a song from the third Run DMT album, Dreams, “Richard,” appeared on the Woodsist compilation Welcome Home. Collins started the Culture Dealer imprint, where he finally released his Dreams album in 2011.
