" Futuristic and Nostalgic, the AfroDjMac sound is created by mixing and arranging acoustic and electronic instruments live, and then layering various samples and vocals on top "
Futuristic and nostalgic. New York’s AfroDJMac is a live electronic musician, drawing influence from the genres of indie garage rock, classic rock, video game music, and modern electronica. The characteristic sound is made up of acoustic and electronic instruments mixed and arranged on the fly; live vocals and samples are then layered on top, completing the sound. All the while, special attention is paid to put forth songs that are catchy and exciting to listen to. A typical live performance is just as much party as it is live music. Every arrangement is unique and somewhat improvised, and audience participation is a huge part of the performance.
In 2011, AfroDJMac and collaborator SuperKid will be releasing the four song "Cowboys and Synthesizers" EP. "Cowboys and Synthesizes" is a collection of songs recorded over the last year that embody the spirit of rock (the cowboys) and electronic/experimental (the synthesizers) sounds married together. The songs tap into influences from early rock to modern electronica.
