Maki’s first full-length instrumental project, We Will Not Lead We Will Only Detonate, is informed by a love of hardware, old records and electronic production. The result is an experiment in cut and paste, drum machines, analog synthesis, live instruments and some quality time with a vintage Fender Twin. The record channels the ghosts of Kraut and Prog over blistering drum programming. The 12″ vinyl is limited to 100 copies.
