[LoafLab/Gergaz/BirdView Crew/One Eye Wide Records/Rlade Bunners]
It’s in 1999 that Jon Krey, after taking part in several rap collectives as a MC,
tries beatmaking, exploring the classical side of hip hop, signing his beats
under the enigmatic name DROPOUT MARSH.
Experimenting for a few years, releasing hundreds of tracks,
melting experimental electronica, IDM, trip hop, ambient or industrial downtempo,
he is also involved in different collaborative projects and bands in many other genres.
His productions tend to move little by little towards his early hip hop influences,
and since 2004, he shapes landscapes and beats, sometimes soft and colored,
frequently spatial, dusty or rusty...
A music blog wrote “Instrumental-future-hip hop to try to make it three words” back in 2010.
He releases an EP in 2011 on American Label LoafLab, and in 2012 on the international
Slovakian based Gergaz Label, and many tracks since 2010 on selected compilations
(SeekSickSound/France, EgyptianMaraccas/Spain, Vice/Spain, LoafLab/USA,
BirdviewCrew/Germany, One Eye Wide Records/UK, Gergaz/Slovakia...).
DROPOUT MARSH also self-releases free remixes, original material and EPs
on his web pages, and is been followed by some major blogs and webzines.
He's now one of the few french artists of the growing worldwide beat scene,
and his reputation gave him a chance to perform in the biggest clubs and festivals
in France and abroad (UK, Belgium, Slovakia, Czech Republic, South Korea...),
delivering a live audio and video performance, booked with artists such as MrOIZO,
Knife Party, Dillon Francis, Pendulum, Skism, Tha Trickaz...
DROPOUT MARSH is also been broadcasted regularly in radios and webradios in France,
UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Russia, Nederland, Belgium...
Music video director or video editor, Vj or rapper, his multiple influences collide
and tangle in his music in perpetual motion, dense and vaporous.
