Zack Sekoff – Ancestor’s EP
So Zack Sekoff, our favorite beat maker under 20, recently released an EP entitled Ancestors. For those of us who don’t know, Zack was the winner of the 2011 “Stussy Makes Beats” competition. He competed against like 2000 people from all over the world and kicked ass with a track called Belly Beat. Zack won the grand prize of an OP1 synth by Teenage Engineering as well as an opportunity to perform at Low End Theory, which happens to be tomorrow (22/08/2012), so if you happen to be in LA, drop in.
The Ancestors EP features Belly Beat along with 4 other interesting tracks. We get the feeling that Zack intended to pay his respects to genres and beatmakers who inspired him, what this gets us is an interesting array of Zack meets trap meets jazzed out samples plus, a splash of boombap rhythms. With all these elements present Ancestors packs a punch seldom seen thrown by someone as young as 17.
