London-based DJ and producer Marcus Marr makes a welcome return to DFA Records with his new single ‘Rocketship’.
Marr had a great 2015 with his excellent collaborative EP alongside Chet Faker. This time however he returns to the dancefloor with his latest cut.
“It’s a DJs record really – I wanted to something for the DJs again,” explains the producer.
“Rocketship is a tune I’ve been playing out for a good while now. It always gets a good reaction. It started life as a guitar and bass groove that I put together in my studio here in London. Then it received the wisdom of Damian Drammaticus (the deep voice). Then I laid on the other elements.”
Rocketship is out now via DFA.
Marcus Marr is heading off on a North American DJ tour starting next week:
