A humble, slender man carrying an old and tattered lunch pail to work used to be a strong image of blue collar America, but, Edison, an up and coming hip hop instrumentalist from San Francisco, California is forever changing that classic picture of patriotism. Equipped with a concrete scarred yellow lunch box that was morphed into a 64 button monome, Edison carries his calling with talented fingers that crawl over its body like a crystal meth cooked arachnid.
When we think of “Edison”, we think inventor, innovator, incandescence– and music’s version of Edison embodies just that. With his canary colored instrument that glows incandescently, Edison innovates foggy foundations draped in dark drums. These traits can easily be heard in his latest record, All the Information at Hand, which was released two weeks ago on Kid Without a Radio. This record was graciously let loose as a free download and can be yours here.
