Unbelievably Exclusive Interviews with Edan and Ricky Powell

Berklee-schooled Boston rap vet Edan might be second to Doom when it comes to hip-hop reclusivity (new word!). Like Metal Face, he surfaces with infinitely inspired projects whenever the hell he feels like it. A few hundred fans were fortunate enough to dine with Edan this past Thursday at the Good Life, where he previewed his latest project, Echo Party, which drops on Five Day Weekend this November 17. As if free food and that appearance weren't sweet enough, "The Fourth Beastie Boy" Ricky Powell delivered hearty laughs as usual.

The scene was boom bap nerd utopia; for his latest project Edan was commissioned to have his way with the deep Traffic Entertainment Group vaults in Quincy. Blessed with that opportunity, he composed a throwback opus by meticulously massaging in obscure synth strategies, analogue delays, and all sorts of other wondrously nerdy extra-dimensional effects. It wasn't easy, but we even convinced Edan to discuss his long and clandestine creative process in a video interview (not a very long one, but we'll take anything we get from this guy). Enjoy, and be sure to echo the word about his new album
