~ Melodic hooks, punchy tongue n cheek raps, fused over Dancehall, Afrobeats & Trap production. ~
Coming off a successful WINTA campaign to close out the quarter of 2018, the Jamaican born and South London raised Rapper, Autotune Vocalist and Songwriter, is taking a different approach to the traditional Album format. With the boom of streaming platforms and playlists becoming more and more dominant , Blaks Marshall releases two self curated playlists, ‘TRAPICAL’ and ‘MR. BLAKE’. Described as a #MOTIONALBUM, a new song is added each month, each playlist will reflect a different side of Blaks, Trapical giving you entertainment and Mr. Blake giving you his story.
Highlights in Blaks’ early career include, a publishing deal with IMG, ‘OBE’ Ellis Rich, an impromptu performance alongside Emeli Sandé, and a sold out headline show at the O2 Indigo Academy with former group JFXMUSIC.
Taking a 3-year break from the music industry in 2014, Blaks returned, entering 2017 with a flurry of 1 minute YouTube/Soundcloud freestyles titled FREESTYLEFRIDAY (now exclusive to Soundcloud). Experimenting with styles, Blaks shared skeletons in his closet, through the riddles in “Hear Me Talk” to the last conversation he wishes he had with an ex-girlfriend In “Tiara”.
Influenced by his Caribbean background, Blaks draws rhythms and melodies found in Dancehall, Afrobeats and RnB music, while his basey South London accent vocally distinguishes himself from his peers. Known for catchy hooks and cheeky wordplay, the combination of the two entertains you as Blaks Marshall.
