MACC

Funky Drummer Macc is a pretty well known name in the Leftfield scene with a PhD in Drumscience. Various releases on Paradox' Outsider Recordings, Counter Intelligence, Exegene amongst others and forthcoming bits on Breakin', Mindrush Recordings and 13 Music witness the man's talents. Besides being a producer, Macc performs live Drumfunk across Europe as well - something one must not miss!

08. The shoes you wore today

Buying 'Hey Music Lover' by S-Express (I was 9 or something!!!)

Dropping a stick during my drum solo at the end of a school play in front of 300 other pupils, saying 'BOLLOCKS!' and having the headmaster look angrily in my direction.

22. Worst trackname ever
Anything with unnecessary Z's where S's should be, numbers replacing letters, intentionally poor spelling/grammar, that kind of thing. So something like '4 DA HEDZZ' would make me vomit.

ODB (for comedy) or GZA (for pure lyrical skill)
