We couldn’t be more excited to release EVeryman’s collaboration with Orphic off the Fractal Beach B-Sides Album, on B&K this week. This video capture a slice of EVeryman’s journey from the past 3 years, having traversed the west coast electronic music scene, growing as an artist and performer with the help of his friends and collaborators. We absolutely love that many of the performance scenes in the video take place on a Mutant School Bus called Boogaloo, the infamous Art Car built by the Dirty Beetles Camp of Los Angeles, and the birthplace of the concept behind Betty and Kora.
We had the honour of meeting Evan aka EVeryman three years ago at Shambhala Music Festival and haven’t stopped following his music since. So without further ado, we would love to present to you all his newest video venture, Om Hop Rock. And, as synchronicity goes, we are over the moon to reconnect with Evan and Boogaloo next week in California during the Boogaloo Mountain Jam!
