The hip-hop tandem E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. characterizes the revitalization of early hip-hop elements during a time when many have said hip-hop is dying. As artists E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. have been able to remain commercially relevant while being musically innovative, a fact that sets them apart from any other group in the industry today.
E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. started from humble beginnings in a small production studio in Boston, MA where a burgeoning producers and a hungry emcee came together to essentially create one record. After the record (Good Times) was complete, the streets responded with a cry for more, and it quickly became evident that there was something special in the making.
From that point, E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. had one goal in mind - to make Every Beat Bang and finish each song with the Fresh(est) Lyrics On Wax using the examples set by hip-hop superstars like Reflection Eternal (Hi-Tek and Talib Kweli), DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, and The Kidz Down the Hall.
The name E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. was chosen not only for the powerful acronym it represents but also to characterize their work ethic and drive. Hip hop in its essence is full or hard kicks drums, snapping snares, educated lyrics, political topics, witty musings, and mesmerizing melodies, and E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. music captures all of these things, as they smoothly and steadily move fans back into the golden era of hip-hop music
E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. is comprised of producer DeMo (Jin, Special Teamz, M. Diesel, and Wordsmith), a Boston, MA native whose production style is refreshingly authentic, innovative, and versatile. DeMo stands on the frontline of the music revolution and will remain in the position for years to come.
To the right of DeMo, stands the prolific emcee Inf. (PyInfamous of The Threat). Born and raised in the state of Mississippi, Inf combines Southern soul with unparalleled lyricism that gives the listener a memorable ride every time an E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. track is played. Inf was the official MC for the truth campaign (www.thetruth.com) on the 2006 And1 Mix Tape Tour where he wowed crowds of spectators across the country with his freestyles and his ability to command the masses with a microphone. You can hear Inf’s trademark voice and sophisticated flow on numerous mix tapes across the nation
All signs are pointed in a positive direction for this young duo. The group has garnered substantial attention ranging from invitations to the 2006 CMJ Music Marathon and How Can I Be Down Conference to rocking smaller stages in Mississippi and Boston, MA. With more shows being booked each day and with air play over many college and pirate radio stations around the world, E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. are definitely on their way to a spot in hip-hop few artists have experienced.

Want to hear fresh lyrics on wax, where every beat bangs? Well, that’s exactly what Demo hailing from Boston, MA and Inf. [Pyinfamous of the Threat] from Mississippi, making up the hip-hop duo E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. want you to hear.
“Hip-Hop music isn’t the same. But that’s what evolution is. It’s trial and error,” according to E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. who believe that hip-hop isn’t dead to them, it just seems different.
“And individuality is missing in today’s hip-hop. Depriving the younger generation of self-expression which is what hip-hop was about. Now everyone has a bargain in the industry and it seems cool to sound like 50[cent].”
They’re on a mission to bring hip-hop back to a euphoric state. “The Exception” LP [full-length album], released in ‘07 brings good music to the streets.
One of the biggest singles that E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. released, “Good Times,” a leaked single released in ‘06 has a party vibe to it but yet this track is still pushing the idea of having a fun time even if you are broke.
Listeners can notice a difference in their music when getting down to the old school beats in the background and notice their lyrical flow. Original.
“Breathe Life” is a laid back track, telling us to live life. “We breathe life on the record, live for 1st and 15th, and pray we don’t on the 2nd.”
“I want people to know us and our thought processes for each song. I want people to feel compelled to study our music. I want people to see the future,” they say.
Here is a duo that is worth your $10 dollars. For more information about E.B.B. & F.L.O.W., visit their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/demoandinf. You can learn about how to book a show in your city or purchase an album.
E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. announce the release of “This Is by hiphopruckus.com E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. announce the release of their highly anticipated debut retail project, This Is Not a Mixtape. Truly characterizing the revitalization of early hip-hop elements, this duo has developed a new sound by combing the beats of the east coast native, DeMo Beatz (E.B.B., pronounced ĕbb), and the lyrics of the southern bred emcee, PyInfamous (F.L.O.W., pronounced flō).
Though coming from humble beginnings, E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. have quickly become a force to be reckoned with on the independent hip-hop scene in Boston, New York, Chicago, Mississippi, and other cities and states across the nation.
E.B.B. & F.L.O.W.'s mission - to make Every Beat Bang and finish each song with the Fresh(est) Lyrics On Wax – is clearly evident on This Is Not A Mixtape, which includes some of the freshest tracks hot off the presses from the infamous Soul Lab in Boston, MA that won't be found on their upcoming EP (Spread the Word) or LP (The Exception). All the tracks on the project were written and recorded by PyInfamous, a prodigious emcee from Crystal Springs, MS, and all the original music you hear was composed and arranged by DeMo Beatz, master producer from Boston, MA.
This release is currently available online in CD format on the E.B.B. & F.L.O.W. and Almost 30 Productions myspace pages (www.myspace.com/demoandinf and www.myspace.com/Almost30Productions) and at select retailers in Boston, NYC, Atlanta, and Mississippi. The project will be released for digital download later this month.
