In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Mackum and his brand new single titled “By The Lights” featuring ScoobE.
The modern era of music has given way to enigmas and artists of all shapes and forms who break the norm of what we have come to expect of what an artist truly is. Mackum is one artist that epitomises the essence of the modern era. A multi-talented vocalist and rapper born in Winterswijk (Netherlands), who is making music that is thoughtful, conscious and driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it. This drive has eventually developed into a style of songwriting that is transparent, daring and full of hope and reflective of the experiences and culture that Mackum represents, turning his pain into purpose and lessons into studio sessions.
Mackum has had a vast array of musical influences however he accredits the pivotal influence in his music to greats such as Eminem, Michael Jackson, The Notorious B.I.G, Snoop Dogg & Coldplay. This all culminates in Mackum producing a musical experience that is enjoyable, easy going and fun, but still seeks to provoke thoughts on religion, life, women, modern day society and the problems that come with it. Mackum uses his music as a vehicle to express his perspectives and tell stories. His innate wish is to inspire the youth to do what they love.
