From Philadelphia label Tres Chic Music comes a massive new collaborative piece from a group of upcoming Philadelphia musicians grappling to make a name for themselves. Although released under the Mark MeeZy name, the local hip-hop artist’s luring vocals are backed by instrumental, dreamy soundscapes from Mitchell Clark (a.k.a. Mitchy Millz; production, bass, piano), Jeffrey Clark (guitar), Aaron Harel (of Mr. Sampson; drums), William Schade (saxophone), and William Jang (production).
The beats provided to Mark Meezy’s consciously self-aware lyrics and rhythmic flow dig deep roots into jazz and funk influences, steering the hip-hop genre from popped-out, electronic production backing and toward a more classic approach. The loose nature of the EP showcases every musician featured on the release, presenting no real focal point, but instead an encompassing, collaborative project.
