Marlon Percy – Fire
PurpleFade Records, digital download
Hot on the heels of the recent excellent PurpleFade Records release by Fat Frog (as featured here at Reggae Roots Review), comes a free digital download on the label by up and coming singer songwriter Marlon Percy. The track called ‘Fire’ is hopefully the first collaboration between Marlon and Matt at Purplefade. It’s a soulful slice of reggae, with good lyrics and very modern musical influences. This is definitely reggae for 2016, new and exciting.
Based in London, Marlon Percy has performed with the likes of FatLion Hi-Fi, Roots Guidance, The Busy Twist and Dagger Sound System, he holds the mic at nights across the UK. He featured on FatLion Hi-Fi’s current single ‘Pay Your Way’, which was selected as the ‘Scorcher’ by David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan on BBC Radio 1xtra.
Marlon’s self penned debut EP ‘Out of Sight’, mixed and co-produced with Justin Langlands (Pressure Drop) at King Chubby’s studio Brighton, is an excellent showcase for Marlon’s talent and consists of three vocal tracks alongside individual dub counterparts. I have the feeling that with some more exposure, Marlon’s vocals will soon be in great demand, just check out the hypnotic title track ‘Out of Sight’ and I am sure you will agree.
Have a listen to the live version of Fire below, you can download the track and his previous single ‘Out of Sight’ at the Marlon Percy Bandcamp site. You can find out more about Marlon at his website. Big things await for Mr Percy………
Please give this a share and help get the Marlon Percy name out there. Bless all, Paper Lion.
