Born in Los Angeles, Regan Farquhar was introduced to hip hop at an early age, his father Ralph Farquhar being the screenwriter for the 1985 film Krush Groove. He began rapping at age 9. By 13, he was part of the group 4/29, which was inspired by the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
By the late 90s, Busdriver had solidified his position as an LA progressive rap hero & a key member of the influential Project Blowed collective.
In 2001, the album Temporary Forever catapulted his career into new territory meshing hyper technical rap sounds with the unbridled energy of free jazz improv.
After being signed to Epitaph records for 3 albums, Busdriver's sound shifted into even more experimental melodic territory.
Genre bursting records on the Fake Four & Ninja Tune labels followed.
Today he maintains his position as a wildly unique voice in Hip Hop & has worked with artists as diverse as Anderson Paak, Danny Brown, Aesop Rock, Deerhoof, Clipping, Del the Funkee Homosapien & beyond.
