EDAYE is the creator and production director of THE ZRO HOUR. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, EDAYE’s passion for Hip Hop began with the first known recorded songs, “King Tim III” by the Fatback Band and “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang. Through the years of discovery, EDAYE participated in most forms of Hip Hop expression such as graffiti, dance, beatboxing, rapping, and producing music. In 1996, he performed at several open mics at the Nuyorican Poets Café during Bobbito and Rocky’s “All That” Wednesdays. His journey has led to his focus on audio engineering and music production. In 2002, shortly after graduating SAE Institute of Technology, EDAYE became a part of the opening team at Platinum Sound Recording Studio. EDAYE worked as an assistant engineer on Wyclef Jean’s “Preacher’s Son”, DJ Kay Slay’s “Streetsweeper Vol.1”, Tom Jones’ “Mr. Jones” and Jonathan Demme’s “The Agronomist”. In 2003, he left Platinum Sound to focus on creating THEZROHOUR.COM blog and podcast mixshow.
