EVENT | HOMEBOY SANDMAN (@HomeboySandman) & EDAN LIVE @THEJAZZCAFE

HOME

Hav­ing put their deft minds togeth­er on their recent col­lab album Humble Pi on Stones Throw, we are delighted to bring two cult alt rap fig­ures in Home­boy Sand­man and Edan from New York to The Jazz Café.

As two artists that pro­fess to come from the same pseudo-tra­di­tion­al­ist school of style and exe­cu­tion, Home­boy Sand­man and Edan are some­what mav­er­icks of mod­ern hip-hop.

How­ever, while Home­boy Sandman’s release record has been fairly busy in recent years, it took pro­du­cer Edan has remained some­what of an enig­ma since the late nought­ies. In fact, it took an approach from the rap­per to spark the DC pro­du­cer back into life, which led to the two put­ting their minds togeth­er for Humble Pi.

With the deft and quiz­zical rhymes of Sand­man meld­ing com­fort­ably with Edan’s old-school, psy­che­delic sound­scapes, we’re left with one the most intriguing col­lab­or­a­tions to come out in recent years.

Open­ing the show are Lon­don based quin­tet Third Estate. Com­bin­ing high-grade MCs with live musi­cian­ship, they deliv­ers slick grooves and ser­i­ous lyr­i­cism. No two shows are the same for this excit­ing new col­lect­ive, blur­ring the bound­ar­ies between hip-hop, jazz and neo-soul.
