Nathan Sloan (Rosengarden) and Luscious Duncan (Brian Baliga) are two seasoned writers and music artists since a young age who’ve contributed and collaborated with several groups over time; such as The Paramedics, Crushingcrayons, SooperSwagProject, Riff Raff, Dolla Bill Gates etc. As well as some Portland acts, Nathan has releases with Angelo Moore (Fishbone) and on Savage Squad Records as he was Ben West’s producer/writer until 2014. After meeting in Portland, OR through several erie mutual connections they were instantly magnetized to each others sound, as well as their shared love for movies, tv, and basically any music.
After a lively few years before turning 18, Nathan had been making his name in Cleveland as a Dj/Producer opening for acts such as Big Sean, Devin Tha Dude, Zion I, Chevy Woods, etc. This official debut as Nathan Sloan the rapper shows his boundless interest in pushing forward with musical ideas as well as a shift of focus toward collaboration with Luscious Duncan.
LD’s lyrical prowess and cult following have proven to be worthy as they likely remain listed on the influences of some of the most innovative rap artists. Gifted in wordplay like DOOM, a journey through his lexicon alongside Nathan Sloan’s production can only culminate something truly special.
