It is kind of funny how you can miss something that is directly in your backyard. Maker Chicago's beatsmith Marco Jacobo has been a DJ and producer since the mid 90’s. I had no idea who he was, let alone that he is right here in Chicago until Stones Throw released its Maker Vs. Now-Again record.
Anyways, Maker marks his Now-Again Records debut with Maker Vs. Now-Again an entry in the same “music-library” series that saw the release of limited edition albums like Oh No Vs. Now-Again and Koushik Vs. Now-Again. This CD is only available at stonesthrow.com, and comes packaged in a “mini-LP” thick cardboard “tip-on” sleeve. Only 1000 copies of this CD were manufactured. Check out a sample. It is pretty jaw dropping.
