It’s official!! Registration for my first music producer camp is now available! This camp has been in the works for the past 6 months or so and I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach and mentor. Huge thanks to the homie Brotha Newz for seeing the vision and helping me organize. I will be holding 2 camps, June 2017 and July 2017. Only 8 students per month tho’ so register ASAP to secure your spot. I’d love to have more students but I want to be able to have more one on one with each student. Camp will be held for 4 weeks, three sessions per week; experience and interests will pair students. Native Instruments Maschine will be provided for students’ use while attending sessions.
Ive been so excited for y’all to hear this album!! So much love and honesty went into making this thing– Shout out Wanda Jae and Kustoo for the feature verses much love to you both and Justin Mantooth for the incredible master engineering. Be sure to cop this LP on iTunes and stream on any and all digital platforms! Your support of this record helps me give you more art so support and share the links
I intended for “Soar” to be the first track on reset because it was the first song I created after I had the idea for the album. As I created beats I just felt like I wanted to push myself more and although this beat is fire– I scrapped it. I absolutely love the verses and prolly will use them at a later date for something especially the second verse! I actually have a version of this song with Wanda Jae singing on it so this could possibly land on her album. 5 days until the reset and I couldn’t be more excited– so much good news on this record and I feel like its a new beginning for me as a producer.
This joint is a pretty revealing one lyrically and was a last minute cut– I mean the day I delivered the flash drive to the mastering engineer last minute cut!
Maybe 3 years ago or more Izzy (heartfelt anarchy) and I played at the american royale here in Kansas City. This was pre what heartfelt stage show is now, no mask, no lights, no finger drumming, just Iz rapping and me behind turntables. We rocked hard that night tho’! — so hard that they asked me to dj for a while after our set. After our set the promoter approached Izzy and I and said “Marc Ecko is here and wants to meet y’all in his trailer”
Every since I released the image last month Ive gotten tons of Facebook and Twitter questions about it. Even my own brother was like “ay D! Why you barfing everywhere?” As always I give y’all the inside scoop on the record!! I decided to include a summary attached to the song because the message means a lot. Check out the joint and listen to the summary at the end and it will all make sense!
The cartoon image of me is so dope that I pressed up a few limited edition mens shirts– Buy one before I run out!!
