ELIGH w/ DNAE- The 80 HRTZ Tour :: deM atlaS :: DJ M
:: Jambalaya ::
ELIGH- a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the increasingly fickle and rapidly revolving world of hip-hop. The Los Angeles native has maintained his respected status by fearlessly veering from a the traditional trajectory which is often limited to beats and rhymes. Instead, Eligh has chosen to fabricate projects that incorporate the gritty sounds of the UK dub scene, the unorthodox styling of indie rock, the lush guitars and honesty of folk music, and the complexity of jazz, all without losing the listener in a musically esoteric composition.
Eligh’s musical interest was piqued as middle schooler, and along with some friends formed the now defunct, yet legendary Log Cabin crew. That same crew would ultimately end up producing many of Los Angeles’s prominent hip-hop figures, including future crewmates, Murs and Scarub. After a stint in the Bay Area, which lead to a serendipitous gathering of minds, ideas and styles that formed the now world famous Living Legends crew, Eligh returned home to Los Angeles. Since returning home, Eligh has tirelessly produced classic material, being the main contributor to what many would dub the trademark, “Living Legends sound”. Outside of being a studio musician and rapper, Eligh has relentlessly toured and has performed on stages across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and continues to deliver a captivating live show with his trademark rapid fire delivery, whether as a solo act or with his Legendary brethren. As a producer, Eligh has provided music for notable acts such as Living Legends, Murs, Rass Kass, El-P, wrestler John Cena, and continues to be a sought after producer by his peers.
Joshua Evans first began his journey penning poems as a
freshman in high school. After four years of being the frontman of his
high school band, he made a decision to go solo. Dem Atlas was born.
Evans describes Dem Atlas as having two sides, despite only being one
“It’s sort of like there’s two of us,” Evans says. “Dem is the
unenlightened and ignorant side, whereas Atlas is the mythic, holy
figure in control; he is all-powerful, all-knowing and all-seeing.”
Dem used his musical experiences to propel himself into different textures
and sounds of music, ranging from Folk to Alt-Rock to Hip Hop. Moved
by art, friendship and spirituality, Dem Atlas conveys through his
music the duality between Man & God, Ignorance & Brilliance,
Enlightenment & Obscurity.
