Marble Empire
A soulful collaboration from the London talent...

Marble Empire seems able to do anything.

The 21 year old Londoner is a dexterous producer, a talented musician, someone capable of moving from jazz basslines to 2-step rhythms within the blink of an eye.

A multi-instrumentalist, Marble Empire - real name Matt Berry - was recently introduced to Katya DJ at a live show, and pair swapped email addresses.

Exchanging ideas, the two quickly developed a creative rapport, and dived into the studio with real abandon.

He explains: "We kept talking and got her round the following week to do the track together. I did all the production myself and the lyrics and melody were a mix of both of our inputs. The guitar solo is Katya though!"

'Head Above The Water' has a loose-limbed, jazz element, set against those soulful vocals and - of course - that melter of a guitar solo.

Marble Empire adds: "Trying to stay positive and carry on even if things are hard. I think it resounds well with every young person who is trying to plan their career path - especially in a competitive industry like the arts."

Tune in now.

Marble Empire will be playing live at London's Archspace on March 24th along with collaborators Karimthapeasant and Katya DJ.
