Editorial Reviews

Following on from `How About A Game of Chess' one of the most sought after download only albums of 2005 and short listed as one of Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Albums of the year, producer Marc Mac follows on with his latest production project Visioneers Dirty Old Hip Hop. Visioneers music is the sound of Hip Hop and Jazz in a head-on collision, a definition which reaches its climax on tracks like, `Ike's Mood I' and versions of the classic Nas `The World Is Yours' and Pharcyde's `Runnin'. The project features the talents of Brad Somatik and 4hero drummer Luke Parkhouse and features guest vocals from rappers Capitol A and Voice. BBE. 2006.

Marc Mac has stated about this record, "I needed to produce the tracks like hip-hop records that sound fat in a club and not like dinner jazz. It's about reclaiming jazz." I would argue that he has done just the opposite. One-half of UK duo 4 Hero, Marc set out to reinterpret classics as a way of honoring hip-hop's production element. What he accomplished is a little different, but wonderful nonetheless.

Reinterpreting hip-hop is a tough assignment. The genre's production is essentially the reinterpretation of all that has come before. To reinterpret a reinterpretation... well, you see the difficulty.

Visioneers is not a band, but a studio project. Marc Mac composed the material and brought in long-time collaborators Brad Somatik and Luke Parkhouse to help with the execution. It is at heart, classic hip-hop covered and reworked by an extremely hip band.

Marc takes hip-hop's original production elements and expands on them while at the same time bending them to the sensibilities of traditional jazz music. While Marc says he wanted to reclaim jazz, I think he reclaimed hip-hop to an even greater extent. At a time when hip-hop as a genre is threatening to marginalize itself, projects like this help keep it relevant to progressive-minded artists.

Dirty Old Hip-Hop is rap music filtered for the set who are offended by the coarseness of the lyrics. It is the potential soundtrack for the Smithsonian's hip-hop exhibit. It's a project that puts the virtuosity of hip-hop's producers on a pedestal and recognizes it as something to be studied, preserved, and revered.

Marc uses hip-hop as source material. "Runnin'", "The World Is Yours", etc.

Buy it. If you like mellow, cool, smooth, funky modern jazz/hip-hop/soul/acid jazz/nujazz/whatever, with real instrumentation, this is for you. I have their Hipology. And pretty much anything 4hero have done. It's stunning how brilliant Marc Mac (and his 4hero buddy McFarlane) is.

90's hippity, the greatest era of rap music substance to date... I challenge anyone to object. The golden era of hip hop lives in fools my age. "Yeah I called ya fat, lookit me I'm skinny, but it never stopped me from gitten' busy"........

Overall, nothing stellar, but a few tracks on this album make it worth it. Reminds me of times past, when hip-hop was relaxed, introspective, and fun.
