Borahm Lee/Daru Jones/Nate Edgar: The Music of J Dilla & DJ Premier
Borahm Lee - Keyboards (Break Science, Pretty Lights, Kanye West, Lauryn Hill)
Daru Jones - Drums (Jack White, Pete Rock)
Nate Edgar - Bass (The Nth Power)

Borahm Lee makes up one-half of the electronic duo Break Science. His chops as a keyboard player are undeniable, but he flexes his skills way beyond the keys. His live-sampling trip-hop-meets-dub fuses with musical partner Adam Deitch’s breakbeat-style drumming -- and the crowd goes wild. The pair met when Deitch was collaborating with Wyclef Jean, and Lee was working with Lauryn Hill. With their synergy and flow, it’s no surprise they’ve played such packed festivals as Electric Zoo, Electric Forest, and Camp Bisco. Before starting his own band, Lee played keys with superstars like Kanye West, Lauryn Hill and Matisyahu. Lee performs regularly with Pretty Lights.

Daru Jones is one of the most respected drummers of his generation. Born to two professional musicians, he began playing the drums at the age of four. Though he got his start in the church, Jones has been influenced by musicians from a wide range of genres. These eclectic musical tastes have carried over into his own career as he has recorded, performed, and toured with renowned artists and producers such as: Jack White, Slum Village, Talib Kweli, Black Milk, Dwight Yoakam, Jamie Lidell, Pete Rock, Salaam Remi, Gloria Gaynor, Kim Burrell, Rance Allen, Black Violin, Ski Beatz & The Sensei’s, Lorenzo Jovanotti and Jon B.

Jones has been the “go-to-drummer” in the hip hop game for over a decade. He has shared the stage with legends and emerging stars alike, including: Black Moon, Smif N Wessun, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Raekwon, Curren$y, Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Black Sheep, Digable Planets, Camp_Lo, Smoke Dza, Theophulis London and Large Professor.

Jones is also a sought-after producer and boutique label owner who develops talent and releases music through his imprint, RUSIC RECORDS, LLC. The Brooklyn, NY and Nashville, TN-based producer/musician exhibits a unique approach to beat-making that incorporates live drum loops, jazz and gospel samples, and a soulful musicianship into all of his projects. Over the past decade, Jones has produced and released a catalog of projects he classifies as “soul-hop” featuring collaborations with vocalists and rappers: Kissey Asplund, Ishe', Jasiri X, Reggie B, Rena, AB, and Eagle Nebula, among others. In addition to these RUSIC projects, Jones has produced original and remixed tracks for recording artists including : Muhsinah, iSHE, Jessie Boykins III and Kendra Ross.

2015 was an amazing year for Jones. His performance on “Lazaretto , ” the first single from Jack White’s second solo album of the same name, helped White earn a 2015 Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Jones has also received high accolades for his performances on the Lazaretto Tour (his second with White). Most recently, he was featured on, declared the “Unsung Hero of Coachella 2015″ by, and named “Best Drummer of Coachella 2015″ by the LA Times Music Blog, Pop & Hiss.
