Mr. Carmack - Auckland and Wellington shows this May

Madcap Presents:


Mr. Carmack - Auckland and Wellington shows this May


Born and raised in San Francisco, Mr. Carmack (government name Aaron Carmack) is one of the most exciting new producer/performer talents currently bubbling up from the new DIY electronic music underground. Currently based in Honolulu, Hawaii, over the last few years his peerless idiosyncratic beats have caught the attention of ears across the globe. Low-key and humble, he's been pushing his music through its strength alone, disregarding the cult of celebrity for something slower smoldering yet ultimately longer lasting.

Disseminating his message/expression via single and EP releases through soundcloud, bandcamp and email blasts to crucial DJs and blogs, things reached an early peak for Mr. Carmack at the start of 2013 after achieving the #1 chart spot on bandcamp twice with Band, Vol. 3 and Life/Death. Releases through key labels Mad Decent's Jeffree's imprint, Soulection and Team Supreme started flowing, as well as the opportunity to perform live at Coachella and Low End Theory in Los Angeles.

In the months since, Mr, Carmack's cult has grown, leading to acclaimed appearances across the globe, yet more perfectly pristine explorations of the spaces between synth-funk, trap, ambient and beats, and the opportunity to get into the studio with Pharrell, Djemba Djemba and Diplo.

This May Mr. Carmack arrives in New Zealand for the first time to perform in Auckland and Wellington alongside special guests. Opportunities to witness artists on this sort of rise within an intimate environment only come around once. Don't miss your chance to catch him right on the cusp of greatness.

Friday 2nd May, Cassette Nine, Auckland w/special guests
Saturday 3rd May, Boat Cafe, Wellington w/special guests
