Marcus Marr – Rocketship
DFA Records are excited to share London-based Marcus Marr’s new single, “Rocketship”, out today. The deep groove crowd favorite was premiered by Zane Lowe on Beats 1. Regarding the track, Marcus says:
“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.”
“It’s a DJs record really – I wanted to something for the DJs again.” Get it here.
