DC: Mar + Full Crate at Montserrat House
2016 9th St NW
Producer Full Crate and singer Mar are two rising young musicians from Amsterdam. Both were immersed in music from a young age; Full Crate studied piano and Mar was surrounded by two musically inclined parents. Full Crate & Mar have been friends since high school, sharing the same passion for music. They fuse soul, electronic, and hip-hop with a sound design that pleasantly represents the current sound of soul music today.
Today they are both part of the rising Amsterdam hip-hop / beatmaker scene. Mar’s skillfully soulful voice strikes a cord with his listeners, and pushes the boundary of soul music. For the last couple of years Full Crate has been composing and producing music for different projects, vocalists and mc’s and dj-ing at the best spots around the world. Full Crate music is versatile and expansive; his works go from cooled down soul music to up-tempo electronic beats.
Full Crate is on the forefront of Dutch progressive electronic music. Full Crate has been acknowledged by the Red Bull Music Academy for his talents and invited him to come together with like minded people for two weeks worth of recording sessions, lectures by musical luminaries, and unforgettable late night jams (only 60 artists worldwide has received this invitation).
Since the buzz, which started in 2009 with his independent free release of “She was Fly” featuring Mar, which later became part of their debut ep entitled “Conversations With Her”, they have workedand performed with artists such as Eric Roberson, Erykah Badu, Mark Pritchard, Electric WireHustle, Seiji, The Park, Daru Jones and Jesse Boykins III to name a few and made remixes forChris Turner, Athony Valadez and Steve Reich.Both having a recent solo EP to their name, Crate’s “Golden Glasses” and Mar’s “Seeing HerNaked”, they are currently working on their full length album which will release later this year.
