The Dutch producer will release his debut album through Sushitech next month.
Guy Blanken, AKA Makam, is preparing for a November 24th release of his full-length, How Long Is Now?
Born in The Hague but currently residing in Amsterdam, Makam has amassed a healthy following for himself since the release of his debut 12-inch, The Hague Soul, in early 2009. That initial effort arrived through Lauhaus and Kabale Und Liebe's Soweso imprint, although his strongest label association has been with the UK-based Sushitech Purple, who have put out three Makam EPs and called on him for a remix. And the imprint run by Yossi Amoyal and Matt du Jardin will show further faith in him by releasing this full-length effort, How Long Is Now?. The album is comprised of almost entirely new material, with the exception being "Things I Embody" which was originally released back in August. Makam has shown a strong propensity for classic-rooted house grooves these past two years, which will no doubt carry over to this debut full-length.
