On the road, JmaC has been known to incorporate surprise guests such as Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, GRiZ, The Floozies’ Matt Hill, and Russ Liquid, to name a few. Recent live highlights include performances at The Gorge Amphitheater in WA and Red Rocks Amphitheater in CO, & festivals from coast to coast.
In the studio, JmaC continues to push himself to new musical limits by incorporating original, sample-free recordings. This is especially apparent in the material from his most recent album, Minds Rising. Released in April 2017, Minds Rising is an infectious encapsulation of Manic Focus' roots in funk, soul, new-era hip hop, and electronic music. The album features appearances from cutting-edge hip hop artists, vocalists, producers, and musicians from across the country such as Jennifer Hartswick of Trey Anastasio Band, Adam Deitch of Lettuce/Break Science, Russ Liquid, ProbCause, Late Night Radio, and more.
