Born Jamie Flynn, Maroc is a DJ/producer from New York that specializes in bass music. Making his Soundcloud debut just 9 months ago, Jamie has proven he’s here to stay- releasing several singles, and a debut EP since then. To sum it up, Flynn’s got his timbs on our collective throats, and there’s no sign of him letting up anytime soon.
“VAL” is a classic 140 bpm dubstep thumper. Spitfire hip-hop vocals flow over trap drums and hi-hats. Clear experimental elements come into play at the drop with a wet growl that’s constantly shifting and morphing. It’s a headbanger’s dream, but there’s more to this track according to Jamie.
This track is more than just a song. It describes the emotions that I’ve been going through during this whole pandemic. I dug as deep as possible with this one, and I want people to know that life is the most precious thing we can lose.Jamie Flynn (Maroc)
Riding a wave of highs since releasing his debut EP, Jamie was grounded with the loss of a dear friend. It showed him how valuable, and fragile, time can be; even incorporating this realization in the cover art. “VAL” is meant to illustrate the emotional rollercoaster Flynn has been on. Constantly shifting, and never still.
