MP3: Marc E. Bassy – “Relapse” feat. Iamsu!

Bay Area Artists, Marc E. Bassy and Iamsu! Team Up For New Loosie “Relapse”



Critical Praise for Marc E. Bassy:

“His bouncy flow channels the manic energy of Chance The Rapper; the animated style and tempered synths of “Cigarettes” could comfortably fit as a b-side to Acid Rap – SPIN

“We were able to give Marc his first ever solo performance at our SXSW Showcase, and it exceeded all expectations.” – Good Music All Day

“A very unique artist, you’ll want to tune in for 2014.” – Hypnotic Hippo

The Song:

Have you ever sheepishly gone back to an ex-lover because the nookie was too good to resist? Ah yes, we’ve all been guilty of the relapse. And so has future RnB singer Marc E. Bassy and Iamsu! from HBK Gang, who teamed up for this loosie that’s titled just that: “Relapse.” Detailing his addiction to good lovin’ long after the relationship has faltered, Marc acknowledges, “this song came from the realest of experiences. I ended up sticking with the habit, couldn’t shake her.”

With lyrics like, “Im’a try to hit it one more time / I’m addicted to the way we grind,” Marc compares the pull one feels to a former lover, despite knowing better. This, matched with Mik Beat’s ambient, bass-filled production and Iamsu!’s playful verse, creates a sultry, multi-layered groove of a single on a hazy, slow-motion ride like a drug. “Love is a chemical reaction right? It takes us on the same roller coaster as any other chemical we feed our brain. It changes our perspective; all the sudden we hear music differently, we talk differently, have different views about our friends. It’s all there,” explains Bassy.

Only The Poets features production by Count BassyThe NICNACBEATS and Billion Coast blending Hip-Hop, RnB and soul stylings into something completely new. The EP showcases Marc’s versatility as a singer and tackles topics not often addressed by the mainstream. “We’re trying to do more over here than put out random songs and pretend like we know about fashion,” he explains. The project is set to be released on July 29th.
