“Jazz used to be radical, that’s why hip hop producers used to sample it and rappers rhymed on it. I want to put Jazz back in the hands of hip hoppers” - Marc Mac. 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’ Marc Mac is better known as one half of 4hero, the duo that changed the shape of UK electronic music and picked up both a Mercury Music Prize nomination and MOBO award while doing so. Marc Mac’s production credits include tracks for Jill Scott, Vikter Duplaix, Ultra Nate, Terry Callier, Ursula Rucker, and Shaun Escoffery 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, ‘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.

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 wanted 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”.
