A self-proclaimed ‘pop-hop’ artist from Phoenix, Arizona, Marquette King is an artist who has always had a passion for music, put aside only during a parenthesis in sports, when he played as an NFL punter for the Oakland Raiders and later the Denver Broncos.
But now, following an injury, King is back to working hard on music again. After a series of hot tracks published in 2019, Marquette recently released the single ‘This Side’, a compelling hip-hop number in which he mixes pop influences to create what is an eloquent and effective introduction to what is his distinctive stylistic signature.
Here it is evident that Marquette is in his element, perfectly at ease with a bouncy flow that finds the right support on a driving beat, thick in the low and warm in the middle. Moved by a contagious dynamism, the track sounds full-bodied and coherent, with an extra bliss of incisiveness and brilliance given by Annabelle’s featuring: the combo is just the icing on the cake!
With the release of the new single ‘This Side’, Marquette King has already announced his next project, just revealing the title: ‘Past You’. Needless to say, given the premise, we can’t wait to hear what comes next.
