Makzo's latest release, "Downpour", featuring Soul Food Horns is a sonic mosaic that's brimming with constant surprises.
Zack Mortimer, also known as Makzo, is a Canadian-born producer who draws inspiration from the likes of Ta-ku, 9th Wonder, J Dilla, Mr. Carmack, and many more. Makzo expresses his eclectic taste remarkably in "Downpour" as hints of electronica are found next to jazzy motifs from global horn player collective Soulful Horns. This, along with the wide array of instruments employed creates quite a colorful listening experience. The bright flute certainly can't escape mention as it heightens the track's emotive charm.
