mac cover

Crate-digger extraordinaire Mac McRaw (of Vinyl Veterans fame) delivers a flawless lesson in beat science with this dope instrumental project rooted in the sonic crunch and grit of the iconic SP1200.

Featuring beats recorded between 1993 and 2020, the fact that it’s impossible to determine from which period each individual track comes from is a testament to the timeless quality of the music that can be crafted with an SP when the machine is in the hands of a true master.
