EDAN is a producer/dee-jay/emcee who's known for his unlikely take on hip-hop culture, where traditional rap songs are often skewed by 60’s rock samples, tape echoes, and foreign language choruses. His discography includes highly acclaimed works such as "Beauty & The Beat" and "Echo Party". On stage, his repertoire includes cutting up records such as Thin Lizzy’s ‘Johnny the Fox’ with one hand, while holding the mic with the other and spitting his verse in good time, not to mention simultaneously stepping on a delay pedal for the sake of added texture…
PATEN LOCKE is a producer/dee-jay/emcee based in Jacksonville, Florida. His debut release "Super Ramen Rocket Ship" (2009) was entirely self-produced and was praised by b-boys and music lovers around the globe. He's well into working on a follow-up LP, not to mention a two-man project with Willie Evans Jr. (known collectively as Dumbtron). Paten has also just launched a new record label called Full Plate with his colleague Dillon. (For more info visit: www.fullplatefam.com)
Together, EDAN and PATEN LOCKE comprise a formidable two-man squad, committed to progressing the artform while keeping things off-kilter, yet funky. There's a good chance that their live show is better than yours...
