B-Mack Drops New Funky Single, 'Ugly Head'

B-Mack is a master of experimental sounds. His creativity and curiosity allows him to blend genres, bend sounds, and play mind tricks with his words. His latest musical exhibition is entitled Ugly Head.  The song is an alternative combination of industrial metal, funk, and spoken-word, co-produced by and introducing Michael R. Cox who is also featured on guitar. It was mastered by Diriki Mack (SNL, Broadway Vide, NBATV).

The song has an out of the box, funky electro meets rock sound. Many of the sounds are familiar. With a beat that is reminiscent of hip hop's beginnings, Ugly Head is like a juxtaposition of Kurtis Blow's The Break, Kirk Franklin's Stomp, and Voodoo Child by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Mack delivers a spirited performance with profound lyrics like when he chants, "fragrance of a fool's hatred permeates the land." Michael Cox brings all the elements together with his soulful funk on the guitar.

Mack describes Ugly Head  as a song about how a wicked spirit, deed, or entity has worn and torn the souls of humanity, but finally comes to meet its match. It is also about how sometimes there is no control over that which has risen in defense of those weary souls, and a reminder that no matter how powerful or influential an "ugly head" may be, it will always meet its match.

The song is the 4th solo release by the native New Yorker since 2015. A singer-songwriter who also plays keyboards, electric bass, percussion and drum set, he's the total package. Mack has been a part of New York's music scene for quite some time as an indie artist and band leader. In addition to his solo works, Mack performs and contributes original music to multiple ensembles including Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, Melvin Van Peebles w/Laxative, Nubian Messengers, Tricky Dilemma, Eighty-Pound Pug and Rules Of Aquah.

Bruce Mack’s name might also ring a bell as he is former president of the Black Rock Coalition and founder of the original PBR Streetgang band of the 80’ & 90’s and is composer of the seminal hit “Chemical Pollution”.
