Marc Peckham aka Monkey Marc is one quarter of Combat Wombat and one of Melbourne’s most loved hip-hop/dub producers. He has produced for such luminaries as Roots Manuva in the past. Human rights and environmental activism are foremost on Marc’s agenda, and this is evident in his production.
Hopefully this can be heard in his new EP Monkey Marc vs The Planet Smashers, released on Jahtari Records. You can decide for yourself what the sound carries when he celebrates the EP launch at a dope party at Brunswick’s Noise Bar.
Monkey Marc will take you on a journey of tight hip-hop beats over the top of deep dub rubs, bearing to mind such influences as Prince Paul and Mad Professor.
Supporting acts are Dizz1 (live), Stryka D and Bingi Fyah. Some very special guests have also been promised as well. Admission is $10 and I personally endorse this as a great deal for a class act.
