The North Carolina duo, comprised of producers Matt Cagle & Madwreck, are currently celebrating the release of their debut album, Heavy Starch. Combining influences from various genres and drawing inspiration from a local artist, Marcus Kiser, D.A.C. have crafted one of the most influential instrumental albums to be released since the emergence of DJ Shadow and RJD2.
D.A.C.’s dark & moody production, influenced by their love for sampling, analog synths & field recording, coupled with the Kiser’s disposition towards an eclectic mix of comic art, social/political events and the hip hop culture led to the culmination of life imitating art – in the musical sense that is. Heavy Starch is an undoubtedly dark, edgy & unrelenting journey through sound.
