Macrotones

The Macrotones’ imperial afrofunk assault aims to slay. While rooted in groove-fertile afrobeat, the 10-strong militia’s heart pounds with a more sinister urgency. Their commanding horns, drilling percussion section and puzzle-piece precise ideal of songcraft propels minds and dancing feet alike. Placed on bills with reggae, hip-hop and math-rock defenders, the Macrotones have found common ground among devotees of all jams.
