The Slough Town rapper Joker Starr‘s album ‘MACKnificent‘ will be released on March 19th 2015. The guest verse on the title track is taken care of by veteran wordsmith Kashmere, one half of the group Strange U whilst all production is taken care of by DJ IQ. With a combo like that we can expect something that will hit the right spots. All these guys have been in the game for a while now and never fail to deliver and I am sure this will be no different.
The LP was recorded and completed between 2009 – 2010 but due to unforeseen circumstance hard drives were broken, files were lost and all that remained was a demo version on a CD. Now after five years it will be available to purchases on MP3 and CD formats. CD’s will be available at a later date once manufactured. I heard three tracks so far and they do perhaps have a bit of a muddy sound – as would be befitting of a demo version, but this does not detract from the tracks. I am from an era where things sounded less than pristine and there is something to be said for a bit of grit over some of the over-produced clinical sounds we get nowadays.
