Biography

“Evil Ed has been producing high standard hip hop since 1990 and the beats he makes fit between the rough and the smooth, the old-skool hip hop sound and the current emergence of the form. They strike into the mainstream, with a clean and well engineered sound that possesses the raw and refined in equal measure.

Evil Ed formed the Hidden Identity imprint over the 90’s, and his skills were in demand as he built a reputation that many sought. In 1999 dropping ‘Firepower’ ft Taskforce, Gunshot and Jehst, a tune that foreshadowed the arrival of the next generation.

With the advent of the new millennium came his early solo EP series “The Tournament 1 + 2” where we can hear the diversity of his beat making. They demonstrate a less-is-more tradition while still offering ounces of sound per track; specifically the bass bombs in ‘Dangerous Situations’ (reflected in the colossal cut ‘Junq Waffle’), the signature piercing snares in the title track and an unforgettable mood in ‘Alien’.

Ed’s produced for the YNR label at this time and saw tracks on the EPs of Jehst and Tommy Evans (not to forget the mystical work of Nemonc’s enigmatic ‘Voicemail’ EP) that were monumental achievements alongside their equally prolific lyrics. His sound has underpinned the mood in a certain area of UK hip hop for more than a decade. He mixed and recorded the ‘Slanguage’ album for Universal Soldiers, helping to create a masterpiece of street level london life. In brief he is responsible for the sound behind many an underground classic, a producer reaching greatness.
