HAZMAT - Biography:
Hailing from Detroit, Michigan,
Walter Howard, better known by his stage moniker “HazMat,” is first and foremost not a DJ. He is a composer, producer, and artist. To see HazMat Live is to be transported to another musical dimension, as is evident by his first ep ‘Whispers From the Nebula.’ HazMat blends house and techno beats with a funky Detroit vibe and elements of soulful talkbox. His sound is unlike any you’ve heard before, or will ever hear again. Every beat of the music is composed live, giving audiences a rare experience to witness the development of the tracks along with HazMat’s talkboxing. His “electric improv” approach allows him to reinvent himself during each live performance, which brings along with it a new perspective of how we use sound and rhythm to convey this thing we call music.
