Marc Mac takes it back, way back – with some great 70s styled sounds mixed in with Marc's 21st Century vibe – a timeless mix of tightly grooving soul jazz with a live hip hop backdrop! In his work with 4 Hero, Marc could proudly pay tribute to his influences while innovating with contemporary beats and rhythms – and that tradition continues with Hipology. Classic hip hop and the 70s soul, funk and fusion that laid the blueprint are revered, with a modern vibe. Marc Mac produces and plays percussion, bass, strings and every kind of keyboard – with guest rhymers and players include the Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra horns, Baron & TRAC, Luke Parkhouse, John Robinson, Notes To Self and others. Titles include "Shaft In Africa (Addis)", "Funky Fanfare", "Apache (Battle Dub)", "Jungle Green Outlines", "Swahililand", "Luanne From Harlem", "Back In Time","Oil & Water" feat Notes To Self, "Come And Play In The Milky Night", "Whatever Happened To Peace?" and more. Includes a bonus CD: the Hipology Bonus Mixtape!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Full length CD that features a huge range of different talents all remixing the classic Italian soundtrack cut "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli (which was included on Easy Tempo Vol 1). The set's got the full original version, plus cool remixes by Raphael Sebbag of U.F.O., DJ Smash, The ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 2000. New Copy
Very groovy! This series never stops being great – and this 7th volume is a stunning set of mellow jazzy grooves, with kind of a slight 60s easy bent to them! The list of tracks is very nice, with many light lilting groovers – including a number with a good Brazilian feel to them. ... CD
