ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beat Camp Tactics brings all Macgregor's elements to the table. Ranging from soul-jazz to straight hip hop, the songs reflect the band's wide range of influences. Live instrumentation gives the music an organic feel that is lacking in modern hip hop. The rhythm section provides funked out head-nodding beats while the soul-drenched horn lines fill out the sound, showcasing the band's writing ability.

Lead vocalist Wax comes fully-equipped, spitting meticulously crafted lyrics that amaze listeners in their complexity, content, and cleverness. He also amazes audiences by his ability to play complex chord progressions on the guitar while rapping at the same time. Other members of the group occasionally step up to the mic as well. The lyrical content in Beat Camp Tactics is extremely diverse, ranging from battle raps to political commentary to stories of romantic encounters.

MacGregor is:

Wax: guitar, lead vocals
Herbal T: bass, vocals
Chris Frazer: drums
The Eugenic: alto sax, vocals
Mike Gutiérrez: tenor sax
Brian Hint: trumpet, flute


Press Quotes:

--The Diamondack



"Seeing MacGregor made me feel good about the future of live music."

--Jambase.com



"A powerful funk juggernaut that embraces the roots of hip hop. They left me wanting to hear more."

Charlie Boy

hayes metzger

Zach delarocha with bella fleck couln't even pull this off...
this cd is the perfect fusion of jazz rock and rap. the rhymes, the beats, the instramentals come togeather in a way that's not even close to anything i've ever heard. this is the future of music.

CD Baby


With personalities from soul, acid jazz, and a wide range of influences, James Brown funk meets hip hop in a most grabbing way. One might not normally think "eclectic" could describe hip hop, but this alternative, gourmet group has stirred everything together with a fresh taste and organic, live sound to expand the possibilities of the genre. With diverse lyrical content, from battle raps to stories of romantic encounters, we recommend you feast your ears on this buffet.

This album puts the "fun" in Funkylicious!
A fresh, ecclectic crock pot of Funk n' Jazz stew. With a
dash of hip hop. A big, tasty, welcome dash! I love it.
