- Words: James Eaton
Candian beatmaker Hesk has decided to take on a new name for a new project, 6Maka6, with which the producer aims to reimagine the lineage of footwork within the context of raw club tracks. Serving as our first taste, "Helium" is a fine introduction to the new alias, its run filled to the brim with intricate rhythmic patterns, sharp chords stabs, and a tasteful dab of vocal chops. Though just over four-minutes long, 6Maka6 finds a seemingly endless amount of ways to dissect his beat, constantly fitting rolling snares, crisp claps, and metallic FX between the tune's steady pulse.
