Max Tannone

April 1, 2014

Head on over to SoundCloud and check out Max Tannone‘s brilliant album Mic Check 1234!. Ten mashups in all blending together punk rock outfits like The Ramones, Black Flag and Reagan Youth with rappers such as Tupac Shakur, Nas and Public Enemy.

I found Max via the 2009 Doublecheck Your Head album that saw him remixing seven tracks by The Beastie Boys, but the punk-meets-rap effort turned out to be a personal fave where the familiar classics were turned on their ears with surprising and fresh results.

Keeping himself busy DJing, mixing and producing, this New York-based musician also creates original music on his own – and last year saw him release a documentary about one of the remaining video stores in NYC, so you know his heart is in the right place. All the albums are available as free downloads so make sure to check him out here and visit his official website at www.maxtannone.com.
