Mar – Place

Ages ago I featured the collaborative track Gorgeous by Full Crate and Mar. Now singer Mar is back with a fresh new tune titled Place, premiered by Jamz Supernova’s BBC 1Xtra show, which I’d like to introduce to you today.

Born in Amsterdam and raised on a houseboat, the artist has been growing up in a rather musical family of Caribbean/Indonesian origin who have taught him how to play instruments and master them. His journey has brought him quite far already – his credits include collaborations with the likes of Snakehips, Blonde and Full Crate, among others.
Drawing inspiration from the constant struggles and obstacles in life, Mar processes his negative experiences, such as the tragic loss of his father, in his fragile-sounding, lyrically powerful songs.
In Place, Mar once again showcases his pleasantly mellow and captivating R&B-infused vocals, undermined by a laid-back electronic beat – providing a reflective vibe which will definitely get you in your feelings. Listen to it below.


Place is taken from his EP Things Will Be which will be released in late November, so keep an eye out for that.
