Here’s a new video from Egadz. In this video you will se him performing his new song on, what we think is an Akai MPD24 Pad Controller, accompanied by a CME UF midi keyboard. All with some serious live looping, button mashing, and knob turning

Egadz, proprietor of Kid Without Radio records is also an underground phenomenon unto himself. His music is a unique blend of IDM/electronic experimental waves. Performing live Egadz is unlike his laptop contemporaries, everything is played out raw with an improvised wit. In the last 8 years he has built a successful indie record label that is now distributed through Alpha Pup, and has established a niche worldwide following. Egadz just spent the earlier part of this year on a successful 2 1/2 month, 32 show headlining tour in 8 different countries. His imprint is home to many great talents such as Edison, DJ Pain, and Upsidedown Astronaut. He is touring in support of his latest release; We Want Neutrinos.
