Marc Rapson: Dark vs Light

Cool, jazzy hiphop beats, worth a listen. Kalimba is a very dope tune... "Pianist, hiphop producer, remix artist for the likes of Atjazz & Scrimshire: Marc Rapson is a man of many dimensions. From rocking BBC's Maida Vaile and Later with Jools Holland as part of Ben Westbeech's touring band, to releasing stellar re-edits of Marvin Gaye and Sarah Vaughan to the acclaim of Gilles Peterson: Marc has spent the last decade quietly building a following amongst those in the know.

Dark vs Light seamlessly blends crunchy, low swung hiphop beats with Marc's jazz inflected Fender Rhodes and synth sounds. The album is the product of a mind that grew up on Ahmad Jamal as much as A Tribe Called Quest: the jazz pianist with a passion for raw beats. It's a duality that should resonate with hiphop classicists and beat fans alike."

Format: Digital / Ltd Edition 12" Vinyl
Release Date: 27th June 2014
