Suntonio Bandanaz

One of Seattle’s most prolific “Underground Hip Hop” emcees on the scene, Suntonio Bandanaz (previously recording as Asun) has created a massive catalogue of independent material on CD, tape, vinyl and video. He has appeared on hundreds of tracks and released over a dozen projects including: Heavenly Ghetto Cuts, The Naps Project, The House That Love Built vol. 1 & 2, Titanium Buttermilk Rhinoceros Briefcase, Codex Di Satio, and West Coast Scavengers 12″. In true-school form, Bandanaz is master of the indy distribution hustle, a local legend who has moved tens of thousands of units hand to hand and in stores.

Zeta the Barber
