In August of 2002, Justin and Melinda Whedon shifted their focus from the promotion of club and rave events, to the production of dark tribal house and industrial electro breaks. Producing together under the alias Ebon, the duo swiftly caught the ear of the EDM community. Their first promo single 'Sleepless2' was well received by DJ's everywhere, and was soon charted in the March 2003 issue of MUZIK magazine by James Zabiela. Shortly thereafter, legendary house label Hooj Choons licensed 'Sleepless2' for Zabiela's mix CD 'Sound in Motion' as well as including it on the triple unmixed vinyl pack. In 2004 CP Recordings re-released 'Sleepless2' on the E² EP backed with 'Fallen' by Evan Marcus. Next, Ebon's Thermal Imaging Mix of Paul Lancaster's 'Night Vision' was put out on the limited edition label CPR White. Those two releases were just the beginning as Ebon has since released a multitude of tracks, remixes and recently conceived and compiled the 'My Life Remixed' CD, a Remix tribute to My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult released on Red Ant Recordings in February of 2005.
Since 2002 Ebon has also been creating a buzz performing unique and flawless LIVE sets around the Mid-West and as far away as Juarez, Mexico. March of 2005 saw Ebon perform for the first time at Winter Music Conference, which helped connect them with potential gigs in Canada, the UK and Australia. April '05 had Ebon performing LIVE one or two times a week all month long at club gigs, raves and even opening for My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult on a mini-tour promoting the 'My Life Remixed' CD.
Ebon is currently working on their first 'artist album' which they plan to be more song oriented, utilizing more live instruments, both Justin & Melinda on vocals (plus some guest vocalists). First up will be the 'Can't Take It EP' which should be out around Summer '06. They are also hard at work in the Remix arena as well having just finished a remix for Ladytron’s ‘Soft Power’, and in talks to remix the likes of The Dandy Warhols, Sonic Boom (of Spaceman3 fame) and many more exciting projects.
