Who is 'Da Beat Maker?' Da Beat Maker is Eddy, member of the equally genre-balanced and eclectic The Departed Skeletons. 18 years of age, from Sunderland, UK, Eddy is a young lad finding a rather warped enjoyment of creating music that he doesn't really give two shits about in flow, sound, or the fact the songs may actually be shit. Abandoning the band, for the most part, Da Beat Maker (Eddy) concentrates mostly on Hip-hop. Instrumental beats and relatively obscure hip hop that can range from hardcore to abstract. This is not to say Da Beat Maker is just a…beat maker. He features his own, northern, deep (vocal wise, not deep as in thought-provoking….anything
but that) and rather silly vocals and lyrics that flow over similar quirky beats, boops and other funky noises. Comedy Hip-Hop is possibly an agreed summary of this album's sound. We also don't just get hip-hop here, even though the album does flow relatively well in and out, the listener will get many surprises in the genres touched upon Beatz n Treatz…hopefully these will be known as the 'Treatz.'
Da Beat Maker is also joined with Alex (Axel) who is also a member of The Departed Skeletons, appearing on 2 tracks, 'mutherfukker' and 'The Greatest Rap Battle'.
Da Beat Maker wishes to thank his family and friends who have all allowed him to provide a growth in his musical knowledge to be able to perform these musical styles, but thanks himself for not providing a growth to his maturity. He also thanks MF Doom, Rage Against The Machine, Beck, milo, Q Tip, Aphex Twin, Cal Chuchesta, Zappa, Ween, Kanye West and Andy Partridge for providing ideas and such for this project. Can't leave out Based God, of course.
