Why Like This? - EP
Release Date: Oct-05-2010
As music from the Los Angeles area thrives and swells across the globe, one of it's most beloved and deeply rooted members steps out with an LP full of infectious melodies, subtle hip-hop and a kaleidoscope of sound. Music for the imagination.
Why Like This - EP is the precursor to Ardour, the debut album by long time running My Hollow Drum, Dublab, and recent Brainfeeder artist, Teebs. Born in New York to Malawi and Barbados origins, Mtendere (pronounced "ten-de-ra") (Chichewa for "Peace") Mandowa, is a 23 year-old producer who bounced around the East Coast before finally planting his feet in the Southern California suburb of Chino Hills.
A city known for it's rolling hills and FBI ranking of one of the safest in the United States, Teebs developed his artistry right outside Los Angeles' county line and just south of the Orange County beach community. Music may have come by accident, literally. A skateboard injury sidelined Teebs, which led to a concentration on art.
