Maja7th x Marvin Gaye – ‘Songs In The Key Of Marvin’

Maja7th x Marvin Gaye – ‘Songs In The Key Of Marvin’
Salad Days

Whenever Hip-Hop sonically meets Soul legend Marvin Gaye its always the inception of a classic.

Indianapolis, IN producer, Maja7th was inspired earlier this year to put together a 9-track “instrumental” EP ‘Songs In The Key Of Marvin’ as a tribute to the genius. With fresh arrangements, Maja7th built this EP with a selection of atomised samples and acapellas procured by DJ TopSpeed from various songs off his catalogue, re-purposed each of them using live instrumentation, birthing new vitality into the motown standards. Cut from a similar cloth to Madlib and 9th Wonder, the Indiana musician defines musicality highlighting his extensive repertoire using an array of instruments throughout all 9 blends including piano, retro synths alongside his MPC, with some input from Jerome Sloss [Saxophone] and Andrez Allen [Bass] on the collaboration ‘When You Want Me’.

Tracklist:
1. My Whole World
2. On and On and
3. Naw Naw
4. Rose Petals
5. The Promises
6. Love Baby
7. Nothing
8. When You Want Me
9. In Closing [Thank You]
