Emanon

EMANON was born in mid 1995 when Exile and Aloe Blacc met through mutual friends. Exile was looking for an emcee for some of his beats. Aloe stepped up to the plate and the connection was undeniable. Later that year they released Stretch Marx, the first of a series of mixtapes. Back then they were just Dream Sequence, which is now the name of the crew of heads related to the EMANON movement. The name EMANON wasn't adopted until after the release Imaginary Friends, which includes a song by the same name. Exile and Aloe agreed that it was a fitting title for the duo and stuck with it. Aloe Blacc also grew up with Hip Hop. In his early childhood, dancing is what drew him into the culture. Known as “Little Rock” by the neighborhood crew, Aloe Blacc used to bring cardboard on the bus in first-grade for the recess battle on the playground. Aloe left the cardboard and picked up the microphone when a neighborhood friend hipped him to legendary Hip Hop radio station KDAY. He started writing at age nine and still has the notepads to prove it. Exile grew up listening to Hip Hop and became a dedicated member of the culture early in his youth. His first experience with deejaying came long before he ever touched a mixer and two turntables. Exile used to scratch records on a home stereo system using the selector switch as a toggle. As a graf artist, he was immersed in the ranks of true heads that encouraged his skills, and when he saved up enough money, he got his first pair of Technics with a Numark mixer. The international Hip Hop community has welcomed EMANON with open arms as they have toured in countries such as Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, England, and Japan. They have also been embraced by some major label acts opening for artists such as De La Soul, Naughty by Nature, KRS-1, Red Man, Talib Kweli, just name a few. Aloe Blacc & DJ Exiles plans for the immediate future include a host of projects: debut album, solo albums, crew compilations, deejay albums, etc. There will be enough music for every emotion, thought, and event. So whether you are out with your friends getting something to eat, or chilling at home wasting time, EMANON are right where you want them to be. "DJ Exile, who has produced for artists such as Ghostface Killah, Slum Village, and Sa-Ra, laces Waiting Room with his very eclectic approach to beat-making, creating a jazzy, soulful feel on these 15 unique tracks...Through refreshing beats and a far more accurate portrayal of day-to-day living than the ‘reality’ portrayed by any so-called ‘gangsta’ rapper, Emanon displays what ‘keeping it real’ is really all about on Waiting Room." - Undergroundhiphop.com
