Marvin The Martian, of Brixton’s Why Lout? crew fame, is to release his first solo EP, Hoods & Badges, on June 5th. Championed already by the NME, calling his style “Grindie” [don’t pay any attention to this], Marvin is leading the charge from South London re-working and sampling indie tracks. The EP features samples from Good Books, Art Brut and even a motorbike!
Don’t be put off by labels, especially if you aren’t into indie, this is grime which uses samples, plain and simple. And with collabos underway with Akira The Don and !Forward: Russia, Marvin is staying a busy man.
