About the El Duo
Lo-Fi ˙ Afrobeat ˙ Jazz
Born in 2015, Oakland's "El Duo" blends lo-fi electronics and afro dance grooves with a natural sense of wonder. Drawing from their deep love of improvisation, drummer/producer Randy Schwartz (Brett Dennen, Illumination) & keyboardist Harrison Murphy (Sun Hop Fat, Harry & the Hitmen) curate unique and inspired soundscapes for audiences. El Duo weaves together its unabashed brand of experimental dance music under an umbrella of vintage synthesizers and drum machines. The witty pair approaches their concerts with a raw and loose fervor, often featuring special guests, which gives each of their shows its own distinct magic and character.
