Double Hex is a side project of Boston based musician, Joel Edinberg. Joel is best known for his work
as bandleader and saxophonist in the Somerville Symphony Orkestar. He also plays in the presidential
rock group, the Van Burens and Reggae outfit, Ila Mawana. Along with these groups, performs with
Stones Throw Record’s artist, the Stepkids, and has been featured on their latest album. He also
regularly performs with local Boston bands, Parlour Bells, Brother and Company, and the XTY jazz
ensemble. After work with so many of these bands, and realizing he spent a significant proportion of his
childhood playing video games, he decided to combine these two loves to produce an EP of chiptunes
covering some of his favorite local and semi-local bands.
