Tenshun's (real name Jon Calzo) is an eclectic turntable/electronic music artist and beatmaker from san diego CA, head of Skrapez label and part of the Creatures and kilowattz crews.
In recent years, he has performed concerts in Los Angeles and San Diego including the Museum of Contemporary Art Downtown. Calzo is also a member of an electronic music duo called Tenshun who just released a few recordings on their own label and the group Obscuricon. For the past two years, Calzo has been blurring the lines of musical genres with his extensively wide range of influences, mixing his own music with hip-hop, funk, polish jazz and scratch-dub. A very brief list of his influences include David Tudor, John Cage, The Executioners and QBert.
Penny fills an enormous void in hip-hop: sexy feminine lyricism thats as aggressive experimental as it is easily accessable. With a clean delivery like Ladybug from Digable Planets, she could rely on teh watery-smooth grain of her voice, yet she finesses the beat with all types of twisty intonations, changing paces with the quick flip of a word.
