Max MacVeety has immersed himself in a wide range of musical forms, but is most inspired by music that fits under the umbrella of social expression: hip hop, soul, funk, reggae, afrobeat, and blues all share a sense of solidarity with everyday life. This is music for the people, by the people, and brings together the ethnic roots of rhythm from around the world.

His touring and recording experience includes Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Lyrics Born, Crown City Rockers, Jake One, and many more. Max is now heading up Bunkhouse Recordings, a production house dedicated to original music production and artist development located in Long Beach, CA. We made a photo-video for this track, and scrambled together a few photos of Max along with some found-photos from the internet. The result is a slick drum groove with a buttery bass-line and some electric guitar-candy over the top, backed by series of images that explore the gritty details of urban life. SEEN, the latest single from Max MacVeety, is a shout-out to underrepresented people everywhere: this is your time to be heard.

Max MacVeety is a Los Angeles-based drummer and producer. This song is featured on our Instrumental Hip Hop playlist.
