Bonus MP3: Datahowler -- "Prophet"
Edman used to go by the name of Objektiv One, back when he was making waves around the Internet as a mashup artist. Back in June, though, he changed his name to Datahowler, suddenly sick of reworking the music of others and inspired to make his own, chillwave-y creations.
And, since that announcement, Edman's completed his debut Datahowler album, called Slowdrifter. Unfortunately, there's no release date yet slated -- although Edman hopes to change that in the next couple of weeks. Like many other area artists before him, he's going the Kickstarter campaign route, hoping to raise $1,500 in funds from fans and supporters so he can properly promote the 14-track release and print up actual, real-life physical copies of the disc.
As always with these kinds of campaigns, donation amounts are incentive-based -- and, to his credit, Datahowler's conjured up some cool ideas on that front. For example, if you're willing to cough up $200 on his behalf, you'll get in return a whole bunch of limited edition releases tied to his debut album and -- get this -- a personalized theme song, written by Edman for you.
