Boomkat Product Review:
Proper, Loefah-styled halfstep dankness from a furtive (and purportedly) Manchester-based operator.
Dropping some 3 years on from a cultish debut which had everyone thinking it was Loefah incognito, Macker’s 2nd 12” maintains that stare-down pressure in both parts. A-side leads in with synematic intro and calves off into thee dankest halfstep swagger, reminding us of times when no fucker would bat an eyelid if you smoked a big zoot in the dance.
B-side, ‘Isolation’ pushes that vibe deeper into the smoke, with cavernous, Metalheadz-style intro giving way to a Shaolin-disciplined display of wood-chopping snares, ‘floor-scooping bass and sweeping synths.
