Maker vs. Now-Again 3: "Now-Again Music Library Vol. 8" (CD)

CD - $14.99

Chicago-area beatsmith Maker's two entries into Now-Again's Music Library series showcase the verve with which this underground Chicago hip-hop producer undertook an exercise in boom-bap era aesthetics: he dug deep into the Now-Again catalog and found dusty drum breaks to underscore two bar loops. Maker Vs. Now-Again made the case that hip hop didn't necessarily have to fly into a dub-step inflected future if it was still having fun in its funky past. Maker Vs. Now-Again V.2 expanded beyond the American funk, soul and jazz that Now-Again was founded upon and included worldly grooves from far-flung locales like Nigeria, Brazil and Zambia flipped up by this hip hop classicist.

With his latest, Maker Vs. Now-Again V.3, we find that the producer grabbing from the best of both worlds, from the riches of the ever-expanding Now-Again catalog. This limited edition is CD is packaged in a gatefold eco-wallet package and is available in limited quantities. Once they're gone, they're gone.
