In a scene flooded by new artists and music, it’s easy to miss the come up of major stars until they’re suddenly in front of you with an entire music catalogue, countless streams and an exciting profile to be explored. Marc Jones is one of those artists and whilst he’s been steadily building with his single releases, gaining hundreds of thousands of streams in the process, he now releases his first collection of music with his debut EP ‘Progress’.
Executively produced by RP9 (Chip, AJ X Deno, Sophia Grace), the EP features 6 tracks of varying moods and topics – sharing a plethora of his own truths and experiences and invariably taking us on his journey of ‘Progress’ through life.
Whilst his gritty delivery, baritone vocals and the variance in ominous, trap-tinged instrumentals against the more melodic and introspective joints make for a weighty rap record, the eradication of smack talk and crud almost fails to register as you get lost in his lyrical stories. The refreshing vibe of positivity, ‘Progress’ and inspiration is subtle, there’s no rags to riches story or preaching here but more of a welcomed point of view and frame of mind.
Hailing from Croydon, a part of the world that’s become synonymous with gangs and violence, Marc’s aim is to expose people to something different and finding himself as the face of Spotify playlists and racking up ½ million streams on the first single from the EP ‘Real’, he’s certainly delivering what he intended to.
