“Rocketship” is the newest single from Marcus Marr. World Record today on Zane Lowe Beats 1 Radio. Marcus Marr is heading off on a North American DJ tour starting next week.
The last time we heard from London-based producer Marcus Marr was late last year when he dropped his excellent collaborative “Work” EP with Melbourne electro-soul crooner Chet Faker. Now, he returns to DFA Records with his killer new single “Rocketship”, a seven-minute surefire dancefloor groover, with deep vocals and a good amount of funky guitar licks. Of course, we’d expect nothing less from Marcus Marr.
“‘Rocketship’ is a tune I’ve been playing out for a good while now. It always gets a good reaction. It started life as a guitar and bass groove that I put together in my studio here in London. Then it received the wisdom of Damian Drammaticus (the deep voice). Then I laid on the other elements,” he says.
