Jonwayne at The Scala

About

Jonwayne came onto the Los Angeles music scene by way of the east Los Angeles club Low End Theory circa 2008-09, then emerging as the epicenter of a new generation of hip-hop beat makers: Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing, Kutmah, Daedelus. Fresh out of high school, Jonwayne jumped in with homemade rap mixtapes and immersed himself in the scene. "It felt like a golden age," he says, "it was very inspiring." He first became known as a producer, releasing the instrumental album Bowser (2011) - but it was his over-sized skill on the mic that caught the attention of Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf, who signed him to record an album as an MC. After briefly 'retiring' he came back with the track WONKA on his own label Authors, then released a few more incredible tracks and has now announced that there will be an album in 2017. This is great news for Hip Hop fans.
