    The Man, The Myth, The Legend… is hitting SoCal for 2
    consecutive nights (tonight/Wednesday – LA,
    tomorrow/Thursday – SD)

    DEGO (4Hero, 2000Black, Co-Op UK)
    Dego is a man of many names and many sounds. He has
    produced songs under the monikers 4 Hero, Tek 9 and
    Nu-Era, each one championing a futuristic and
    innovative sound. Dego has created a veritable library
    of broken beat, drum'n bass and soul sounds featuring
    a high caliber of artists including Terry Callier,
    Jill Scott and Ursula Rucker of the Roots and King
    Britt. DEGO is also know for remix work ranging from
    Nyurican Soul, Talvin Singh, DJ Krush, Ben Harper,
    Goldie, Incognito, Bebel Gilberto and Mos Def.

    here’s what LA Weekly recently said:
    ” You probably already know the waxwork of Pavel Dego
    Kostiuk, even if you don’t recognize the name. He goes
    by just “Dego,” and together with Marc Mac makes up 4
    Hero, the infectious U.K. brokenbeatz duo responsible
    for reconstructing just about everybody’s rare grooves
    (most memorably Minnie Riperton’s “Les Fleurs”) into
    cleanly beat-driven bliss-outs. Call it any number of
    names — abstract lounge/down-tempo/nu-soul — Dego’s
    solo sound is rooted in the remnants of the late-’80s
    and early-’90s acid-jazz juggernaut. He’s supporting
    two new releases tonight: Pavel Kostiuk & the
    Musicals, consisting of speedy, butt-wiggling and
    (trust me) never-corny reworkings of material from
    Broadway shows like West Side Story; and the more
    laid-back Selector Series Vol. 2, an all-remixed
    sampler showcasing Dego’s trademark cascading samples
    of bass and xylophone, bossa breakbeats, and seamless
    segues on tracks by Bugz in the Attic, Bah Samba and
