BandHip HopR&B

Take poetic lyricism, add a love for music and a hustler's mentality, you get Sporadic a.k.a. Es Dub. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Sporadic defines hip hop's street edge with individual style and class.


During the early 90's Sporadic started wanting to be a DJ, until one of his neighbourhood friends heard he could rap and pursuaded him to pursue the pen.

A musician that is trained in classical and jazz music, he's has taken his love of hip hop and intergrated it with every form of music he came into contact with.

In 1999, Sporadic enrolled into the Humber College Jazz Program, and by 2001 he would be the only student in their jazz program performing and studying as an emcee. During that time, he would be introduced to Sweet Touch Foundation, who would later become his official dj's for shows and mixtapes. In 2002, he would become more involved in the local community by becoming a host of the internet radio show Gladstone What?!.

By 2004, Sporadic had expanded his network was being featured on mixtapes. Sporadic became one of the winners of the first Just Entertainment Demo Showcase in 2005, which ended up with the song, P.A., pressed on vinyl and distributed to every hip hop radio show in Canada.

Sporadic continues to record, perform locally and outside of Canada. He is currently working with various artists from North America and Japan, doing features for compilations, mixtapes, and albums.
