Mako & The Hawk (@makoandthehawk)- “The Devil Made Me Do It” ft. Chima Anya

Mako and The Hawk release the visual to their latest single, “The Devil Made Me Do It” ft Chima Anya

On their new 45, Mako & The Hawk take you back to a time when breaks were funky and rappers knew how to rhyme for a massive double dose of original fresh boom-bap. They might sound like a seventies cop show, but Mako & The Hawk are always on the cut, producing and spinning floor-filling dirty funk and soul, old school hip-hop, reggae and party breaks.

Since forming in 2009, the pair have had vinyl and digital releases on Breakbeat Paradise, Freestyle Records, Funk Blasters and Tour of Booty, garnered frequent radio plays on Craig Charles’ BBC Radio 6 Funk And Soul Show, supported the likes of Jstar and The Bongolian and held down a never-less-than-packed seven year long residency at Mr Wolf’s in central Bristol.
The Hawk is the bassist for mod-funk legends and BBC Radio 2 darlings Big Boss Man, while Mako also produces as one-half of Mako & Mr. Bristow and is the long-running editor of music site

With beats forged from previously un-sampled (and legally cleared!) vintage funk breaks and emcee Chima ‘The Doctor’ Anya delivering lyrical wisdom.  Mako & The Hawk’s, ” The Devil Made Me Do It” and “Strut Your Stuff” are a pair of block-rocking jams to turn any party out. Word!
