Marc Mac presents VISIONEERS – Hipology (BBE)
Marc Mac is one of a rare breed of producers who moves smoothly between different genres flitting between pseudonyms while leaving a trail of quintessential releases. Straight Outta Dollis Hill London, Marc Mac is one half of the legendary outfit 4hero. In the late 90s Marc started another project called Visioneers releasing a set of limited 7” singles getting the attention of some the top eclectic DJ’s including Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope, Gilles Peterson & Norman Jay. Visioneers was then picked up by BBE records who released the debut album “Dirty Old Hip Hop” with great success.
Following on from the success of “Dirty Old ! Hip Hop” Marc returns with a new Visioneers record Hipology. “Hipology is a collage of some of my personal influences as a DJ/Producer growing up listening to Hip Hop; a real eclectic mix of Breaks, Beats, Soul, Jazz, and freaky squeaks and not a sampler in sight. Visioneers is about revisiting my love for Hip Hop; What is was and what it is; the musical influences and the culture…”
