Music: Marlowe (L’Orange & Solemn Brigham) – Marlowe

Producer L’Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham come through with an exquisite new collaborative album titled Marlowe.

With L’Orange’s usual old-school sampling techniques, also incorporating Asian psychedelic rock influences and civil-rights era samples, this album is overtly political and personal, as Solemn Brigham raps about institutional racism and how it affects Solemn specifically as well as how he grew up dreaming of success making music.

Over the 17 tracks, Solemn Brigham is able to exercise lyrical gymnastics as he changes up flows within tracks and incorporates clever wordplay and vivid imagery throughout the entirety of the project. The North Carolina rapper is able to create his own world, and L’Orange’s gorgeous soulful soundscape creates the perfect platform for Solomon Brigham to share his personal experiences on the mic. Highlights include “Lost Arts,” “Tales From The East,” “Medicated” and “Mayday.”

Make sure you check out L’Orange and Solemn Brigham’s collaborative album Marlowe below via Bandcamp, and make sure you support the music in any way you can! Released via Mello Music Group.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
