Wednesday DJ Residency: Edan

June 12, 2019 09:30 PM until June 13, 2019 01:30 AM

EDAN (aka the guy playing 45s while you sip a drink at the bar) is a critically acclaimed dee-jay, emcee, producer and song-writer with a global following. To this point, he'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 (not to mention the off-beat humor and surrealist imagery incorporated via his lyrics). Since his debut rapp single saw the light of day in 1999, followed by critically acclaimed albums such as ‘Beauty & The Beat’ (released in 2005), he has steadily amassed a loyal cult following, despite being somewhat indifferent to his own career. As a dee-jay, Edan manages to incorporate a wide range of tastes and influences into a single narrative that celebrates warmth, grit, and imagination… Expect to hear anything from 50's rockabilly to early 60's R&B to late 60's soul/funk, garage rock giving way to Turkish (or Persian) psychedelia, roots reggae, on up to late 70's rapp & disco, punk & new wave, and back again…
