Evan Marien x Dana Hawkins is back with their new album “Elysian” featuring Tigran Hamasyan, Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah, Cory Wong, Plini, Aaron Marshall from Intervals and so many more incredible musicians. The rise of the rhythm section is emblematic of our brave new world where musical conventions are often turned on their head.
This is the case with the extraordinary bass and drum team of Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins, who lead from the front and build their sound from the bottom
up to create a progressive fusion, splicing genres, technology, and technique in a dazzling display that’s already racked up hundreds of thousands of views on their YouTube channel and earned them a worldwide following.
Showcasing their unique partnership through high-definition videos – that combine slick visuals with high-intensity interaction – they now perform as a powerful live duo, utilizing Ableton Live to bring their cutting-edge production skills into the live arena.
Surfing the post-Squarepusher/Thundercat/Flying Lotus wave of progressive instrumental music where jazz, electronica, beat culture, and heavy bass collide, Evan Marien and Dana Hawkins appeal to the heart, head, and hips as two of the brightest stars in the global groove firmament.
