Canadian singer - songwriter, Mac DeMarco, recently announced the release of an upcoming mini LP titled Another One, due out August 7th. The upcoming album, seemingly centered around love songs, will feature eight songs including the recently released "The Way You'd Love Her". With a style deemed slacker rock, DeMarco creates music that will make you want nothing more than to go on an adventure with long lost friends during the long days of summer. As the temperatures continue to rise and young love's emotions churn, DeMarco brings us the title-track off his upcoming album, "Another One". Accompanied by a self-made music video, DeMarco sings about the harsh reality of a loved one slipping away and falling in love with someone else. Sporting a MJ tribute shirt, while playing the keys, drums, and guitar in a body of deep blue water, Mac DeMarco goes to show he is a master at his craft. Be sure to check out the video below, catch him while he's on his 2015 world tour, and stay tuned for any updates on his upcoming album.
Obscure within the shadows of Cleveland, Ohio, lies 16 year old producer, 16 yr old. Quite cliche yes, but talented nonetheless. With unexpected musical influences, a good taste in film, and a simplistic lifestyle, it's evident 16 yr old is enjoying life. When asked what gave him the idea of jumping into the unforgiving realm known as the music industry, he responded...
But thats what everyone does so it's alright, right? Meshing together hit tracks and unexpected samples, 16 yr old seems to create pure gold. Transforming Birdman's "Pop Bottles" with the solemn undercurrent of Beach House's "Heart of Chambers" completely changes everything ranging from tempo, to the overall emotions provoked by the track. With a steady flow of releases and a collaborative EP with producer DIVINE, 16 yr old has only begun to show us his full potential.
Performing this past NYE in Ohio with Goth Money Records very own Black Kray, we can hope to see live performances pick up a bit whether they're in Ohio or not. Quickly garnering attention from the likes of 40oz Van and others, it's safe to say he's definitely someone to keep your eyes on. Download his EP here, and check out the rest of his music via his soundcloud. Below is a brief conversation with the youngin' himself..
So is it true you're really 16
Swagger on a hundred thousand million yes
So whats up with your fashion influences, looks like some of your gear is DIY
I fuck with fashion. Shout my n****s at chemical denim, NOVA OHIO, DEFCON LA, and salute to the big bro 40 oz. I love fashion, I like looking how I wanna look. Shit is lit
Dope, as far as music goes, are there any genres outside of the hip-hop/rap realm that you're into
I'm into everything, that also includes country
Any artists that directly influence your work? The Beach House sample was genius
Slayer, Whitechapel, Big Black, Blood Bros
What's life like, you know, within the massive culture you've become a part of. Meeting other artists, the parties/drugs, traveling the world. All of which is becoming a part of you're life at the age of 16
ell you know, I'm still very innocent at heart. Even if I shot a few n****s in my lifetime, I just try to enjoy everything. I am drug free though
Good for you man, especially in a scene where drug use and the context of drugs is so prominent. Outside of music production and the shows what do you do
eah, drugs are lame. I don't really do shit. My girlfriend is cool and I love movies and worldstarhiphop. Shout out Soph Beezy
I love drama and thrillers, Good Will Hunting, fire, not too into any artsy films. That shit's really lame.
SEVEN IS LIT, FREE MAX B!!!!!
any projects we can expect to see in the near future? NYC shows?
I got an EP coming soon, who knows when doe. And shit, if I can get booked, lets get it gang gang
So what's going to happen when you turn 17? A new persona or sticking to 16 yr old? Or retiring by then?
really don't know to be honest with you. We just gonna keep walking till we reach whats next. Hopefully were running by then.
Well good luck man, keep running. Thanks for talking
Anytime dude. RIP YAMS, PIMP C, DJ SCREW
The clouds overhead have cleared, as an indefinite question has been answered today. Clockwork Indigo The Electric Koolade Experience, what was believed to be the title of Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers upcoming tour, is much more than just a label for the drug induced escapade covering 37 dates. It's now confirmed that Clockwork Indigo is indeed the name of the supergroup consisting of Brooklyn rap groups Flatbush Zombies, and The Underachievers. They bring us a track under the title of "Butterfly Effect", seven minutes of pure rap atop a slowed down, grimy, orchestral loop. All five Beast Coast members hop on the track to spit bars, all while Erick Arc Elliot handles production, both vinyl crackle and Carl Sagan sample included. Cali bud smoke aloft and references to the Beast Coast and Indigo lifestyle, the track fades out with samples "It's my belief" and "It seems madness to say." Give the track a listen and find out more about the tour here.
