(Note: The producer’s name is Ekʞ, not Ek, but due to formatting the site won’t acknowledge the third character.)
There is something truly fresh about the atmosphere that MarcAndre and his producer, Ekʞ, have created on their track, “Just Know,” which deals with something all too familiar. The quintessential exploration of head vs heart. Confusing toxicity. From the first distant hum of a melody to the slow, hissing lyrics that MarcAndre lays down, we can feel the tension, the near-nausea that comes from his confusion, and it feels … comforting. As though somehow the sway of the track proves that the Orlando, Florida rapper has got your back.
MarcAndre has released an EP, Expectations, that can be heard on SoundCloud and features various producers working to expand his unique sound. You can also check him out on his website, Facebook page, and Twitter for more news and tracks.
