DJ Eons One makes beats for Grand Invincible among other things.
My personal opinion is that if you really like hip hop, once you hear the beats this guy makes, his music will be on your regular rotation.
Lots of music coming from DJ Eons One, like the Grand Invincible albums “Ask The Dust” and ”Cold Hand In The Dice Game”. There’s also the “Low Budget / No Budget” he did production on with Grand Invincible, Shedwellaz, Murder of Crows, Fist Fam and Sequenced Mindset. Download it!
The music definitely speaks for itself, here is a brand new video for the title track from the upcoming “Winter 365” album:
Answer some questions for us DJ Eons One!
When I discovered it, it was freaking a lot of people out so naturally I was drawn to it. The more I delved into it, the more I bugged out on the use of samples and recreating something completely new out of something old and out of context. I started collecting records really young and hip hop made records something interactive for me and not just something you put on and then sat down and listened too.
2. If you had $100k Drop in your lap right now what would you do with it?
Go record shopping. In Japan. With my homie Jake Juan.
3. If you could have 1 super power, what would it be and how would you use it?
Being invisible could be interesting. I would most likely get involved in all types of ill shit.
4. Do you have any skills in the kitchen? If yes, what’s your signature dish, if no why the hell not?
Yeah, I can get biz in the kitchen. I’ve been making this Tapatio chicken that I bring to BBQs a lot. Basically throw a few chicken breasts in a bag, cover with Tapatio and add as much minced garlic as you can stand. Let that shit marinate for a few hours, grill it up and serve with tortillas. Cut the marinade with lime juice if you are a wimp.
5. Tell me the worst stage experience you are willing to admit to the public?
I’ve probably had a few doozies that I don’t remember due to “time traveling”. I remember Spazz playing this squat in South Philly with Brutal Truth where I broke a string in the middle of our set. The place was fucking packed and for whatever reason I couldn’t get to my back up guitar. Someone handed me a guitar and the guys in my band just launched into the next song. I knew something wasn’t right with the tuning, but my bandmates kept clicking into the next song before I could see what was up. Afterwards the dude who lent me the guitar told me it was drop tuned which I had never played before. I felt like that was one of the worst shows I’ve ever played. Fortunately video footage of it has been floating around for like 15 years.
6. What is the #1 Junk Food you just can’t ever refuse?
Kraft Mac n Cheese.
7. What was your first job as a kid and what did it teach you?
I delivered newspapers. I learned when you wake up early on the weekends in the suburbs you basically have the whole town to yourself. Also, most people are assholes.
8. What is your most memorable moment in your hip hop life?
V.I.C. (formerly of The Beatnuts) calling me and telling me my beats were a breath of fresh air. Coming from a dude who worked on records I studied when I was learning how to make beats, that shit just blew me away. We had a bunch of phone convos that were really inspiring.
Bonus Question: Now that you’ve tried it what are your thoughts on GreenLight Jerky?
It’s the perfect snack to have stuffed in the pocket of your Carhartt jacket, opposite the pocket of the one holding your 40, natch.
Thanks for Playing DJ!
