Description

The San Jose-by-Oakland duo of Edgewize and DJ Platurn mark the release of their debut EP, Apatheater, with a performance at Cafe Stritch's weekly Wax Wednesday party. Layering dusty, deep-crate grooves with dense-yet-punchy lyrics, these two Bay Area hip-hop heads warrant the comparisons to Aesop Rock, Atmosphere and MF Doom. Taking on Silicon Valley's complicity in our country's yawning wealth gap can feel a bit heavy-handed when presented in song form, but on tracks like "Yada Yada" and "Goaltending," Edgewize unearths metaphors as potent as they are effortless, while Platurn's jazzy production maintain an infectious momentum.
