“Evan Marien x Dana Hawkins are back with a new music video for their song ‘Kyoto’ feat. Aaron Marshall from Intervals and Julian ‘J3PO’ Pollack.
Their new album “Parallels” featuring Mario Camarena from Chon, Aaron Marshall from Intervals, Cory Wong from Vulfpeck, Thundercat and Flying Lotus collaborator Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, keyboardist for Marcus Miller Julian “J3PO” Pollack, and longtime keyboardist for Allan Holdsworth Steve Hunt.
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.
