Tue 6.18
IN THE BAR

Edan happens to be 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), and highly regarded live shows the world over, he’s 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…

His weekly residency at PR will highlight these timeless sensibilities. 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 Thai) psychedelia, roots reggae, on up to late 70’s rapp & disco, punk & new wave, and back again…

IN THE BAR

A mainstay of the Chicago jazz scene and an active recent addition to the New York scene, Jaimie Branch is an avant-garde trumpeter known for her “ghostly sounds,” says The New York Times, and for “sucker punching” crowds straight from the jump off, says Time Out. Her classical training and “unique voice capable of transforming every ensemble of which she is a part” (Jazz Right Now) has contributed to a wide range of projects not only in jazz but also punk, noise, indie rock, electronic and hip-hop. Branch’s work as a composer and a producer, as well as a sideman for the likes of William Parker, Matana Roberts, TV on the Radio and Spoon, is all on display in her debut record Fly or Die – a dynamic 35-minute ride that dares listeners to open their minds to music that knows no genre, no gender, no limits.
