Little Mack: Drac Juke

Little Mack: Drac Juke

Josh Hedges moved to Nashville, but he will forever be a part of the Michigan breakcore scene. This EP contains 5 tracks, including material he performed at Codename: Dracula last year. As the title suggests, this is his haunted take on juke/footwork, which means fast hi-hats and hip-hop samples combined with gabber kicks and harsh breaks. The 13-minute title track is the highlight, and it’s dark and giddy. It’s like Halloween, it’s evil but not really evil, it’s just for fun. It’s more of an excuse to wear fangs and use fake blood than anything else. And eat lots of candy (but no Milk Duds, Dracula cannot chew them). “Point Detroit” is a similar uptempo juke/ghettotech track, with skittering 808 beats and halftime samples that seem to move in slow motion compared to the beats. Elsewhere, we have some thrashy metal breakcore (“Cannon”, Little Mack’s remix of DJ Skull Vomit’s “Antigoon”), and dilapidated harsh breaks with a harsh noise ending (“Get It Together”). Free download, grab it now, no excuse.
