Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took the world by storm in 2012 with the album “The Heist”, recorded and released independently. #2 on the Billboard 200, they went platinum with huge hits like Thrift Shop, Can’t Hold Us, and Same Love, their ode to tolerance vis-a-vis marriage for everyone, performed with Madonna on stage at the GRAMMYs®. “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made”, their new album, aimed at combining their favourite sounds of the 70s and 80s, is the most ambitious production they’ve attempted. "Hip-hop was incredible at the end of the 70s and the start of the 80s, and rock just as much", Lewis comments. For the artist and his producer, extraordinary things happened at these extremes of the musical spectrum. The challenge was knowing how to combine them. With their new songs Downtown, Dance Off and Growing Up, they have already proved that “The Heist” was just the start of a promising future.
