… Marc Mac is better known as one half of 4hero, the duo that founded legendary drum & bass label Reinforced Records and changed the shape of UK electronic music.
Production credits include tracks for Jill Scott, Vikter Duplaix, Ultra Nate, Terry Callier, Ursula Rucker, and Shaun Escoffery to name a few and he has a long list of remixes under his belt from Masters At Work to John Coltrane.
Visioneers music is the sound of Hip Hop and Jazz in a head-on collision, this is most demonstrated on tracks like Ikes Mood and versions of the classic Nas – The World Is Yours and Pharcyde Runnin.
The project features the talents of Brad Somatik and 4hero drummer Luke Parkhouse and features guest vocals from rappers Capitol A and Voice. Marc explains – the Visioneers idea was in my head long before we recorded the first record.
Visioneers is not a band, it’s a studio project. I want to pay respect to hip hop producers like Jazzy Jeff, Jay Dee and Pete Rock for introducing me to Jazz and I needed to produce the tracks like hip hop records that sound phat in a club and not like dinner Jazz, its about reclaiming Jazz.
