Maker is one of those producers that should be a household name by now.
The guy has something special, he knows what he wants out of his music and knows how to execute it correctly. Aside from being the backbone to many of Indy raps favorite acts, dudes beats can stand alone, firmly. With his instrumental projects he creates the most personal and intimate music that I like to contemplate my very existence to.
Anyone and everyone that knows Maker will vouch that he’s a stand up guy and an example for any honest producer on how to harness your honest feeling and make them into a living, breathing composition.
