N.A.S.A.

N.A.S.A., an acronym for North America South America, is a collaborative alternative dance project between Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon that rounded up an amazingly eclectic bunch of underground music stars for the full-length album The Spirit of Apollo. Of the two DJ/producers comprising N.A.S.A., Squeak E. Clean is the better known. Most notably, he produced the Grammy-nominated Yeah Yeah Yeahs album Show Your Bones (2006). Moreover, he collaborated from time to time with his brother, acclaimed video and film director Spike Jonze, on projects such as Yeah Right! (2003), a celebrated skateboarding film. DJ Zegon is the other member of N.A.S.A. He is best known for his tenure in the Brazilian rap group Planet Hemp, which was active between the years 1993-2001 and released a series of albums on Sony Music. Working together as N.A.S.A., the two DJ/producers rounded up a slew of noted music figures over the course of several years for what would ultimately become their full-length album debut, The Spirit of Apollo. Released in 2009 on Anti- Records, the album featured vocal turns by David Byrne, Seu Jorge, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Tom Waits, Kanye West, George Clinton, M.I.A., Santigold, and many more.
