LA based rapper, Marq Robinson, caps his year long run of singles with a look back at them as pieces of a whole project now titled 26 (in real time). The output began late last year with the release of YELLOWGELATO, a unique 13-minute track that blends several styles of music into a disjointed single track playlist. Following that released the artist began pumping out music on a semi-weekly basis and the growth as a producer and artist can be heard as each song progresses.
Listen to the full EP and see Marq’s take on the project below.
” This year I let myself make music openly without any filters or expectations
all together it was 26 tracks & snippets
that matches my age so I feel this is a good place to cap things off
These songs are bad cringeworthy and vulnerable at times and also catchy fun and inspiring at other times
*Insert meta-metaphor about 2020 here*
If you play the project from start to finish you’ll experience the full progression of my year as a producer an artist and a person
Real – unpolished
Arrogant – Insecure
Better – unfinished
Good + Bad + Ugly
I’ve grown in a lot of ways and that evolution can be heard in the music.
Despite the raw output I think a lot of the lyrics in here will ring true to those that really give it a shot
Maybe a few more of us can evolve
This “ep” is just a playlist of these 26 songs and will be called – 26 (in real time)
If you tuned in at all over the past year big Big BIG shoutout to you THANKS!
Got a few ideas to market the piece but I’ll just link to the playlist for now
