Following the success of their debut LP, Dirty Old Hip Hop, Marc Mac and the Visioneers return with their second album, Hipology. Released on BBE Records June 12, Hipology features John Robinson, TRAC & Baron, Notes to Self, Luke Parkhouse & The Ariya Horns. “Hipology is a collage of some of my personal influences as a DJ/Producer growing up listening to Hip Hop,” explains Marc. “It’s a real eclectic mix of Breaks, Beats, Soul, Jazz, and freaky squeaks and not a sampler in sight.”

Straight Outta Dollis Hill London Marc Mac was known first as one half of the legendary outfit 4hero and also founder member of Reinforced Records, a label positioned at the cornerstone of early electronic music in the UK. In the late 90‘s Marc signed to Gilles Peterson’s Talking Loud Records with his group 4hero, a group comprised of himself & Dego (2000Black). They went on to produce two albums, including “Two Pages”[1998] & “Creating Patterns” [2001]. 4hero then went on to set up their new label where they released the critically acclaimed “Play With The Changes” [2007] and the most recent “Extensions” [2009]

Somewhere between producing music for Jill Scott to Roy Ayers, Phonte to Terry Callier, Marc started another project called Visioneers releasing a set of limited 7” singles which quickly got the attention of some the top eclectic DJ’s including Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope, Gilles Peterson & Norman Jay. In 2004, Visioneers was then picked up by BBE records who released the critically acclaimed debut album Dirty Old Hip Hop.
