Who? Recently, the South has seen its share of eclectic musical weirdos (i.e. Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Dark Meat), but L.A.-by-way-of-Louisiana's Hawnay Troof gives all of them a run for their money in the "strange" department.Known to his parents as Vice Cooler, Hawnay Troof (pronounced Haw-nee Truth) fuses booty-bass beats, a hip-hop-influenced delivery, and pretty much whatever's in his record collection -- be it Gwen Stefani or backwoods bluegrass -- to create a bewilderingly awesome musical gumbo.Both confrontational and congregational, Troof's beat-driven, stutter-filled jams will move your feet the way they were meant to move -- with wild abandon and reckless intent.

His Latest: Troof's third record, Islands of Ayle, drops Sept. 9 via Retard Disco.
