Biography

Macka can refer to two artists:

1. Macka’s interest in avant-garde classical music and abstract sonic art bleeds into his dubstep productions in unexpected ways; be that unusual field-recordings, off-kilter wobbles, or grimy 2-step beats with an orchestral overlay. With his output varying from a distinctly left-field take on the jump-up formula to darker, near-ambient atmospherics, this London-based producer is always guaranteed to surprise and delight.

Macka is a member of the Mothers Against Noise collective releasing on Broken Bubble, 20Twelve, Schwa! Amenorea and Accomodus record labels…

Similar artists include Mount Kimbie, Floating Points or FaltyDL. Voilá!

Watch out for the Shakespeare quotes…

2) A masculine Goldfrapp? A feminine Nick Cave? A 21st century Blondie or a key-crunching threesome between Enya, Lisa Gerrard and K.D. Lang? Baroque aural minimalism, d.i.y. electro synthetism and raw emotional realism find form in Macka’s singular music. Dance songs you can cry to, love songs to lie to, this first album is an emotional breath of fresh air in a city that moves to heartless beats.
