Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com It's been almost two years since I've started this site dedicated to Aaron Carmack aka Mr. Carmack. Now looking back to the days when I started blogging, I've never really thought I would even work nor even talk to Aaron, but last year in September, Aaron contacted me and asked if I would like to work for his Official Site and ofcourse I said hell fucking yeah, and two days ago, the Official Site finally launched with the release of his Red EP. This will be my last post on this wonderful blog and will keep working on the Official Site for now on, so go ahead and jump to mrcarmack.com and Bookmark it. Just wanted to say, thank you for all the 75 thousand clicks and all the love y'all been giving me all this years, see you on the other side! Art is never finished, only abandoned!

Aaron collaborated with Chicago producer Harris Cole on the tune ‘Waves’ for Harris’ new EP titled ‘Alexithymia’ together with Kenny Segal and Ian Ewing, check out the tune below, and make sure to cop it on BandCamp. Alexithymia is inspired by this last year: a collective experience of depression, anxiety, and vague happiness, stress, excitement, a great deal of changes. I hope this project gives insight into my experiences and can be used to comfort, console, confuse, conflict, or simply make you feel”

Mr. Carmack's ‘Drugs’ Played On Rock Band 3


Check out this awesome edit by mbsurfer198 playing Aaron’s ‘Drugs’ on the Rock Band 3. “Created one of my favorite Carmack tracks into a rock band drum song. This was my first drum chart for this music genre, so I know the fills, some of the bass, and just the chart in general aren't correct. I had to take some of the triple bass bursts out to make it more playable with one bass pedal. Also sorry for the pad noises, I don't own a capture card. For more information on creating and playing your own custom Rock Band 3 songs check out http://customscreators.com/ Thanks for watching!”

SD - Circles (Smoko Ono x Mr. Carmack Remix) (15')

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Mr. Carmack helped out Chicago based producer Smoko Ono, an affiliate of Chance The Rapper and Vic Mena's collective Save Money, to remix fellow Chicago native rapper SD’s ‘Circles’. Aaron helps transition the track from a trap-house party anthem to a certified Chicago club banger—and it's got SD's seal of approval:

"This new remix sounds like some 3-dimensional paradigm mixed with all the elements of the old track by Omen and AudioBLK, but pushed to a different futuristic planet," SD told The FADER. "I was really excited for the opportunity to remix 'Circles' because it's one of my favorite songs out and to work on it with a producer as talented as Carmack—I knew it was gonna nothing but heat." Check out the tune below.

The Making Of… Kehlani’s ‘All In’ With Mr. Carmack

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com By Frances Capell, photos by GL Askew II. Aaron Carmack is exhausted. Fresh off a whirlwind European tour, the Soulection-linked producer better known as Mr. Carmack has logged only a few hours of sleep in as many days, yet he’s here at York Recording Studio in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, instead of recuperating in bed. “I was in Berlin a couple days ago. Before that, Cologne, and before that I was in the UK. That was my weekend,” he recounts in a mellow, hushed tone that feels more like a permanent state of chill than the result of sleep-deprivation. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com “Then where did I play on Thursday? I can't remember.” He’s fastened to his swiveling chair, eyes shiny and glazed as mint-green and lavender boxes move like puzzle pieces in the Pro Tools interface on the monitor ahead of him. This afternoon his heart is a little heavy, too, as his team reports that his dating life is on the rocks. En route to the studio is Oakland-bred R&B powerhouse Kehlani Parrish, and unlike past Songs From Scratch Sessions, these two are already pals. There’s no need for introductions when she arrives with boisterous energy and crimson hair. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com Since their social circles are connected, she’s already filled in on his romantic entanglement and, coincidentally, fired up to create a track about a similar issue that’s plaguing her. “Crazy things happened to both of us in the same couple of days,” says the singer. “I feel like we didn't even really have to speak about it, because we’re both fully aware of our situations. ” The lyrics flow from Kehlani faster than she can type them out on her laptop as Carmack toys with the barebones of a beat, freestyling on keys over bass and a sparse, reverberating fingersnap. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com “He played the beat and I was like, Ok, the topic is you're either all in or you're not,” Kehlani says. “Is this too mellow?” Carmack wonders. But this song is meant to be a slow-burner, with Kehlani moving intimately close to the mic so she can whisper-sing the first verse in the booth. As her feathery vocals fill the room, a surprise harmony rings out from Carmack’s corner. “I’m still learning a lot. I come from mainly just in my bed, in my boxers like, writing,” he explains. However, for this son of a bar pianist who was raised on jazz standards, hands-on production seems to come naturally. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com He’s hit by a noticeable boost of energy when Kehlani lays down his vocal idea, rising up out of his seat with hips swaying. “It was just two very creative people in there expressing,” Kehlani says later. “It wasn't even like a singer and a producer. It was just freedom.” For her, creative expression is a coping mechanism that stems from a tough childhood spent hopping around places in Oakland while her mom was absent. “I feel like art in itself is a blessing to someone who has a lot of crazy things they're dealing with. Music, for us, it's what we breathe,” she says. Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com She’s known to finish a week’s worth of tracks in a day, followed by days where “it just doesn’t happen.” More experiences need to be lived in order to add fuel to the fire. With her vocals wrapped for the day, Kehlani says her goodbyes and heads home. Engineers and managers zip in and out of the room, and all the while Carmack remains perched in his chair, zoned-out and zen-like, peeling back layers of the track, snipping and rearranging. He can hear a string section at the end, so a late-night call is made to a cellist in the same manner as ordering pizza delivery. “I’ve never directed strings before,” Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com Carmack says while we wait. In thirty minutes or less, the classically-trained cellist in tribal sweatpants, Gabe Noel, arrives and Carmack fills him in. “You haven't slept for three days? Why not?” Gabe asks. “Because I wanted to hear you play cello,” Carmack responds with a grin. Gabe delivers one long take, which Carmack later chops and weaves into a cinematic conclusion. There isn’t much left to do on the following day except listen to the track and discuss its finishing touches. The pair consider trying to squeeze in another collaboration, but Kehlani’s already gotten everything off her chest. “My friends will hear a project and know exactly what happened, and when and with who,” she explains.“It's hard for me to write about things that I'm not exactly going through right now.” At this point Carmack, who’s opted to remain silent about whatever it is he’s going through, chimes in: “I think this song is pretty fucking relevant.” “A month after completing tour I'm finishing all these projects, these #songsfromscratch. The day I flew back from Berlin, I wrote "All In" with @kehlanimusic for Adidas x Yours Truly, who helped fund and document the entire thing. The video just finished and it drops Monday, followed by the song. soon!” Watch Kehlani and Mr. Carmack make "All In" for Yours Truly & Adidas Originals #songsfromscratch series.

Mr. Carmack Is Working With Keith Ape

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com Mr. Carmack posted on his Instagram Page a picture of him and the Korean rapper Keith Ape, where he revealed that he already had a studio session with the rapper.  Keith Ape is gradually being recognized in the American hip hop scene for his latest collaboration "It G Ma (Forget It)," featuring fellow Asian rappers JayAllday, Loota, Okasian and Kohh. A 21-year-old rapper and member of Hi-Lite Records' group The Cohort. He certainly retweets enough to deserve the title. Keith, whose stage name is a reference to the late Keith Haring, has been releasing music online for a couple of years.

But he began attracting attention after releasing interpretations of viral American rap songs. Last year, he put out "Hot Ninja," a dub of Bobby Shmurda's summer smash "Hot Nigga." And earlier this month, he dropped "It G Ma," a track so heavily inspired by "U Guessed It" that Keith Ape is quickly being dubbed the Korean OG Maco. Regardless, the posse cut, which features verses from a handful of Korean and Japanese Cohort affiliates and whose video stars a bottle of rice wine, is a certified banger, check out the video below.
