Brendan Angelides aka Eskmo is a San Francisco based electronic music producer and live performer. His multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Warp Records and Planet Mu, though while Eskmo's tracks encompass a wide range of electronic styles, he avoids classification. Bleep.com called his tracks "masterfully produced...sophisticated, post-Dilla hip-hop funk" while sites like Boomkat describe his music as "[putting] Eskmo on his own electronic plateau.
In the past five years Eskmo has released over a dozen singles and EPs, most recently a collaboration with Amon Tobin as Eskamon, as well as touring as a live act throughout North America and Europe, opening for Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin, STS9, and The Glitch Mob amongst many others. Over time, he has come to be recognized by top-tier producers as having his own distinct 'Eskmo Sound'; as Pendulum said this in a recent interview, "There are good producers, then there are dudes who..you never catch..and don't even try. He's one of those guys."
