MARC RAPSON - Dark vs Light The Complete Edition
Pianist, Hip Hop/Soul producer and remix artist for the likes of Atjazz, Deborah Jordan,
Georgie Sweet, Scrimshire and more, Marc Rapson is a man of many dimensions.
From rocking BBC's Maida Vale and Later with Jools Holland as part of Ben Westbeech's touring band, to releasing stellar re-edits of Marvin Gaye and Sarah Vaughan to the acclaim of Gilles Peterson, Marc has spent the last decade quietly building a following amongst those in the know.
Dark vs Light seamlessly blends crunchy, low swung Hip Hop beats with Marc's jazz inflected Fender Rhodes and synth sounds. Not one to be confined to a singular style, Marc also fires up the sampler for tracks such as 'Click Loud', combining surgical chop skills with live instrumentation.
Dark vs Light is the product of a mind that grew up on Ahmad Jamal as much as A Tribe Called Quest: the jazz pianist with a passion for raw beats. It's a duality that should resonate with Hip Hop classicists and beat fans alike.
This first time on double vinyl complete edition includes all tracks from the now out of print EP along side additional bonus cuts from the original sessions featuring MC Replife as well as a dope cover of a classic Roy Ayers track.
A great way to help celebrate Futuristica’s 15th year!
