Spinn Masters, Spinmasters, Hen-Gee & Evil-E

The Spin Masters were brothers Hen-Gee (Henry Garcia) and Evil-E (Eric Garcia), a duo hailing from Brooklyn who became members of Ice-T‘s Rhyme Syndicate. They appeared on stage with Ice T during the audition scene in the 1985 movie, Rappin, and also in the trailer and Evil-E became Ice’s DJ, featuring on a number of his classic tracks.

They debuted in 1985 with the single, Brothers, on California based Electrobeat Records, produced by label owner, David Storrs aka The Alien Wizard, and written together with Ice T.

The following year the duo recorded the track, Read To Break, for the obscure King Of The Streets soundtrack released on Music Entertainment Records. A slightly different demo version was also recorded on a one-sided 7″ acetate, pictured here courtesy of Fab.

In 1988 they released Bustin’ Loose as part of Rhyme Syndicate which featured as the B side to Everlast’s (House Of Pain) Syndication. Both tracks were taken from the Rhyme Syndicate Comin’ Through album. Finally, in 1991, they recorded as Hen-Gee & Evil-E and released a couple of singles together with their album, Brothers, for Pendulum.
