Makee is the name given to the hazy beat creations of Dan Cavalli – who in the past was seen drumming in some bygone electronic acts out of Perth like The Transients and Druid Lee Roth. But this is an entirely new transformation.

For the past 10 years or so, Cavalli has been quietly dabbling in music production in his bedroom on “four tracks, samplers, sequencers and reel-to-reel tape… and some dodgy sequencing software” to create a five-track collection of sun-drenched, guitar-driven beats that’ll amiably have you drifting off to a place much more idyllic.
