iTunes Review

Best known for his role as producer/DJ for Los Angeles-based crew Time Machine, Mekalek is easily amongst the most impressive beat maestros working today. From his early days as a college radio DJ and prolific mixtape maker through multiple albums (both with TM and others) and international tours, his work is much loved and respected by hardcore boom-bap aficionados from Rhode Island to Rhodesia. Released in 2006, Live and Learn is the first official full-length under his own name, and, despite limited promotion/mainstream coverage, arguably the best record of the year. Absolutely overflowing with addictive melodies, saturated in thick funk, and sporting countless ridiculously fresh drum breaks, he sets the tone for a collection of quality MCs including Percee P, Shawn Jackson, and Jahpan. Twenty tracks deep, with a smattering of tasty instrumental interludes, this is exactly how good hip-hop should sound. If you were sleeping when this dropped, your wake-up call is here.

He's the D.J. from Time Machine

I love when people write reviews when they have no clue what they're talking about. He's not an MC at all. Do you recognize the names appearing under "Artist" for just about every track but the interludes??? Mek is the DJ of a hip-hop group called Time Machine, and this is a CD he put together with his beats and scratches, featuring various MCs. Is that clear now? Oh, by the's hot.

Excellent Album

Quality beats. The best track, Running In place, gives me goosebumps when I listen to it. I agree that the production is really fine. I wish the beat breaks were a little longer so I could use them (haha). 1) Running in Place 2) Incredible Feeling 3) Top of the World


One of those CD's that just pops up at you. Great lyrics, great beats, powerful underground, even some slight Christian messages in there. This is what hip-hop is all about

Live and Learn, Mekalek
