who doesn’t rhyme in hebrew…
Edan a.k.a. the Humble Magnificent a.k.a. the Rap Beautician just performed super human rap tricks displaying his lyrical gymnastic super phat scratch shtick and modulating vocal synth style fabrics. The show went down last night (motzie Shabbat) at the Knitting Factory. I don’t even know how to go into describing what it was like being in the audience for his show. I’ll let the photos and videos do the talking…

Edan warms up the crowd (check out how he modulates his voice)

Edan is beat juggling and rapping at the same time. Beat Juggling by itself is a test of ones skill as a DJ, but rapping at the same time is unheard of! Check it out and see if you could catch the intricasy of all this…

– Edan on the theramin

– Edan with guitar and djing

– Edan and Y-Love

– Even the crowd got flowers…

As we left, I bid him “shavua tov”. he replied, “Toda” and walked off…
