This past weekend, Datahowler, the chilled-out identity of Frisco's Ross Edman, made his live debut at Club Dada's New Year's Eve Do-Over Party -- and our Daniel Rodrigue came away quite impressed with what he saw from this young performer.

Can't say that this much is too surprising -- we've been following the former mash-up artist for some time now, impressed with his ear and sonic direction.

Turns out we're not the only ones. Extreme sports photographer Matt Butterworth too has taken a shining to Datahowler's sounds and, specifically, his song, "Prophet" (which we shared with you as a free mp3 download a few weeks back) to the point where he decided to score his 2010 photo retrospective video with the song. Combined, it makes for some nice ear and eye candy pairing. Give the clip a watch after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
