NickNack’s State Machine is a good solid album with an eclectic sound. With a little bit of sampling, scratching, retro sounds, and a funky groove it’s a good mix of tracks that has a good progressive flow. I dig beat tapes that also show the diversity of a producer by including a few tracks with emcees on them. The last few tracks on State Machine features A.Dd+Reggie Coby, Dowrong, Lowkey, Crew 54 and Bavu Blakes. Support some good talented folks like NickNack.  Buy NickNack – State Machine on Crowd Control. BIG thanks to Crowd Control Records for keeping me in the know.
