[We See You!] BIG MAKK
[I just watched a documentary about trap music (which I’ll post later today), so I’m probably just in a really hyped mindset to write about it. Haha.]
The explosion of trap music within the dance community is a pure sight to see. I don’t think we’ve ever seen such a changing of the tides since the dubstep bubble burst some 2 or so years ago. The cornerstone has been set by Diplo and the guys over at Mad Decent, A-Trak and Fool’s Gold, and artists like Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus - who’ve believed so heavily in experimentation and progression of sound.
It seems like a daily basis that we come across new moombahton or trap artists - it’s refreshing. This week’s “We See You!” could very well be the entire [new] trap movement, but we’ll just let our own homegrown talent… Orlando’s very own BIG MAKK carry that torch.
Come on - Rusko, Pryda, Robert Miles… BIG MAKK’s sample selection is silly but has us wide eyed. [You have our attention.]
Sure, we love the fact that his newest tracks [above] are all tightly constructed compositions packed with all that snare punch in the trap manner, but we can’t help but commend him as a simple listener of music.
We aren’t looking to hear the next great song - we want the next great artist.
BIG MAKK seems to have an inspired ear for all sounds, the vision to sample it, and the productions chops to blow it out of the water - why can’t it be him?
Check out the rest of his killer work on Soundcloud and Tumblr.
