M.A.E. & The Machine Gun Funk
October 23, 2012 Leave a Comment
Welcome to the show, we are M.A.E. (Mason and Express/Musically Achieved Excellence) straight out of Long Island N. Y.
Our hip-hop blends many genres to complete our sound, some of which are jazz, alternative, soul, funk, and r&b. The third album in the M.A.E. edition is currently under construction and due to release in late December/early January. Most recently we’ve been working of a side project, The Machine Gun Funk, with local musicians at the State University of New York College at Oneonta.
M.A.E. started with one friendly introduction in the dormitories at Oneonta through mutual friends. Jamie Mahoney, (Mason, M-Ason, Indigo), controls the main vocals along with co-producing beside Lars Viola (Express the Motif) who is the primary beat maker as well as vocalist. After sharing a couple of beats and rhymes we both became instantly focused on forming a group and elevating both of their skills. Two years and two albums later we still strive for perfection within our musical blend, attempting to give hip hop enthusiasts and music lovers alike something they can relate to while bobbing their heads. Our rhymes are filled with intelligence , wit, and strong moral character fueled by a college education.
The insightful M.A.E combine musical forces with the 8 piece dub-hop group, MACHINE GUN FUNK
M.A.E will be performing a show November 9th at Sullivan Hall. Show starts at 9pm!
