Boy Eats Drum Machine manipulates a turntable and sampler to make bass-heavy breaks, then switches between his DJ setup, tom drum, and tenor saxophone to meld them into catchy, post-rock jams. His voice carries an 80's pop edge, his turntablism the echoey goodness of the 70's.
BEDM is the solo project of Jon Ragel, a native of Portland, Oregon. He has released six full length albums--two on mom and pop label Tender Loving Empire--and opened for Devo. His most recent release is called The Battle. It was recently reviewed by Pop Matters and OPBMusic:
"This LP is clearly destined to become a minor-key classic in some circles, and cement its creator’s reputation as a summit-peaking act of a great deal of distinction and importance.
[Ranked 8/10]" - Pop Matters
"The Battle tends to be as intense as its title might indicate, Ragel’s layered production— including vintage samples and Afrobeat-inspired horn lines— set against a theme of good vs. evil." -OPB Music ["Revisiting Oregon's Top Music Releases Of 2012"]
