Over at the website of our beloved canadian record label Clothes Horse Records you can read statements like «consistently killing shit for over a decade, Maki has quietly established himself as one of the most slept-on producers in Canada» followed by «with a musical aesthetic akin to a riot in Syntagma Square, his soundscapes have shaped the character of some of the most unique and distinctive records in the Canadian indie-rap scene». No way we could have said it better. Wherever some Maki production pops up, it is very clear that it will please our ears and minds.
That is why we are convinced that there does not necessarily need to be a voice over his production for it to work. Therefore it is a major delight to present the new 7" «Leaving Exarchia / Grayscale», which holds two outrageous bangers. After a summer of discontent in Athens, a room in Exarchia and a thousand photographs, a commentary on those experiences emerge. The canadian producer returns to prog-inspired traditions with densely-layered synths, guitars, field recordings and distinctive drums. Still here and still there. A crisis of sorts. A work in progress.
It is kind of a deluxe edition limited to 100 hand numbered copies on grey marbled vinyl in silk screened covers by Michael Beutler. Mastered by Deeskee.
