EDAN: Beauty & The Beat (Vinyl re-issue)

Rating: ★★★★★ The late nineties and early 2000s were an incredibly fertile time for underground hip-hop and two of the LP highlights from that era were Boston producer/ MC/ DJ Edan’s only two studio LPs to date. Debut, Primitive Plus made big waves but what followed was bigger still – a hip-hop Sergeant Pepper’s…to its predecessor’s Revolver. Utterly psychedelic from the swirling

YOUR OLD DROOG feat. WIKI & EDAN: Help (2017) Video

Rating: ★★★★★ Ukrainian-American emcee Your Old Droog might not be Nas (all interweb rumours from a while back to the contrary), but the man’s got mic skills. So it’s not like he needs help from Edan and Wiki on – er – Help but damn if this almost-posse cut slice of dirty NYC boom-bap (also produced by Edan) isn’t the better for it! And when Edan’s verse arrives after some monster

POETS OF RHYTHM vs. EDAN: Video (part 2) (2013)

Not had enough of Edan in a glossy black wig eh?

Well, now’s your chance to catch the reclusive legendary rapper/ dj/ producer looking quite a bit like Joey Ramone once more. Both videos are part of the PR campaign by

DAPTONE presents: THE POETS OF RHYTHM feat. EDAN video (2013)

Daptone‘s got a brand new bag! Well, brand new old bag. Why? Because they’re re-releasing a ‘best of’ anthology from German retro funkers Poets Of Rhythm. The Poets were famously the backing band for Lyrics Born on I Changed My Mind off Quannum’s classic ’98 Spectrum LP and purveyors of instrumental funky soul of such quality in general that they were a big influence on Daptone
