Edwin Birdsong 1979

Edwin Birdsong was both a creative keyboard player and songwriter. He co-wrote last week’s RAMP post ‘Daylight’ with Roy Ayers.  In 1980, on the Salsoul label, Birdsong would create something really leftfield – the dance groove that was ‘Rapper Dapper Snapper’. The beat would would enter into the public consciousness in the decade that followed when De La Soul used it as the rhythm for ‘Me, Myself & I’.
