[Meet] Marlais

I’ll admit, I’m not quite sure where or how I found myself listening to the Berlin-based project, Marlais. I don’t even know who or what is behind it. But, stumbling upon their recent track, “Love Is Teasin’,”  I became aware again of how this blog originated in the first place.

Music makes you feel something. Sometimes you’re already tapped in, you’re in that moment. Other times, it strikes you out of nowhere. You almost have to sit down to take it all in. The sampling and loops effectively juxtaposed with the gypsy-esque beats in many of the their tracks, it really got my ears. Whatever this sound is, it’s something else.

Digging through, of course, I also found this wonderful gem. The sampling used for the percussion is just fabulous. I am loving all of the different layers of sounds.

For fans of the soundscape, “Shadows of Flowers,” is something powerful.

And a little bit of trip-hop.

Lastly, one of their most popular tracks – a re-working of the Alt-J track, “Dissolve.”
