Abstract Hip Hop
After taking part in several rap collectives as a MC, Jon Krey has been introduced to beatmaking in 1999, exploring the classical side of hip hop, signing his beats under the enigmatic name of Dropout Marsh.
He cruises for several years in his compositions to different kinds of experimental electronica, throughout FutureBass, IDM and trip hop, being involved in different collaborative projects and bands. Since 2004, his productions tend to move towards his early hip hop influences, with beats shaping landscapes, sometimes soft and colored, dusty or rusty, often spatial…
He signed 5 EPs since 2011 on many labels (Otodayo/France, Gergaz/Slovaquie, Loaflab/USA…), released many tracks on different specialized compilations (SATURATE!Records/Germany, SeekSickSound/France, Vice/Spain, BirdviewCrew/Germany, One Eye Wide Records/UK…) and produced many remixes. Currently, Dropout Marsh is achieving several Eps and featurings which will be soon released, still in his own original music style.
As a music video director or video editor, Vj or rapper, his multiple influences collide and tangle in his dense and vaporous music, constantly evolving from hip hop roots… to the future!
