Maka + Durkin return to Fool’s Gold with their effervescent new project, Waterproof (out 9/12). The duo craft an international sound like none other, inspired by afrobeats and dancehall rhythms, classic house and R&B, and future-minded beats from their Boston hometown and beyond. But Waterproof’s personal touches take those globetrotting musical vibes to a deeper level. From bilingual single "Malie,” sung in English and Maka’s native Tongan ("Malie is a Tongan word that means well done. It’s most often used to appreciate when people are dancing well, or after someone sings a song and does a good job.”) to perseverance anthem “Tropical Rain” featuring Ghostdad, Waterproof adds a welcome dose of island magic and IRL emotions to Maka + Durkin's hybrid electronic sound.
The WATR FM mix is the perfect introduction to Maka + Durkin’s new chapter, formatted like the best pirate radio broadcast you’ll ever stumble upon. Brand new Waterproof songs are expertly woven into 03 Greedo and Yaeji jams, while secret DJ weapons from deep digital crates mash into Janet Jackson and T-Pain classics. Play it loud and head out to the coast nearest you, metaphorical or otherwise.
