Popular DJ platform Mixcrate announces dynamic DJ and drum duo, DJ Zeph and Max MacVeety aka. Skins & Needles's "Africa's True Size (Remixes and Edits)" as their "Pick of the Week".

Emerging as visionaries in the Bay Area hip-hop scene, DJ Zeph and Max met at Wide Hive Records. The dynamic duo came together in 2009 are now making headway in the electronic scene generating danceable propulsive rhythms with live drums, breaks, scratches and mixing.

"Africa's True Size (Remixes and Edits)" is a tribute to their musical roots, giving reflection to the expansiveness and richness of African music and culture in today's soundscapes.

DJ Zeph talks about the inspirations that led to the remixes - "I remember hearing African music, especially vocal around me since I can remember. But it wasn't until the late 1980's with groups like the Jungle Brothers and their 2nd album "Done by the Forces of Nature" where I realized the potential of blending African music with hip hop and American dance music."

MacVeety adds, "A pivotal musical moment for me was in 1988 when I was 11 and my parents took me to see Fela. It left a huge impression on me. I was mesmerized by the rhythms, dancing, and outfits. Haven't seen a show as amazing since!"

Combining forces and sharing musical muses, the remixes and edits celebrates culture, music and heritage.

The pair has since graced the stage and toured with legends such as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Karl Denson and many more.
