Marcus Marr: Familiar Five: Remixed
Marcus Marr shares his Familiar Five: Remixed EP. The remixed tracks first appeared on the UK producer's Familiar Five EP, released earlier this year. The new record will feature remixes from Justin Van Der Volgen, Prosumer, Gerd Janson and Ara Koufax. "It was fun to ask some of my favourite producers to remix these tracks," notes Marr. "I love Gerd's remixes and play them loads. Prosumer is a great producer and I've been a fan of his for ages. Justin Van Der Volgen I also love - his originals and his remixes are always interesting. And Ara Koufax I;ve been a fan of since their tune 'Brenda'." Marr is no stranger to collaboration, working with Australian musician Chet Faker on 2015's Work EP. Work yielded two hit singles, "Birthday Card" (Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 first play, #1 Hype Machine) and "The Trouble with Us" (#1 Hype Machine). The Familiar Five EP, however, shows him in his individual element, an artist and performer who understands just how to make superb music for both man and machine.
