Listen to this dope new artist Mk.Gee’s new project titled, A Museum Of Contradiction.
Originally from New Jersey but now based in LA, Mk.gee self-released his debut album back in May of 2018.
Since then he’s dropped an EP that garnered the attention of Frank Ocean and the rest is pretty much history.
The 23 year-old singer, songwriter, and producer put together 9 eclectic and engaging tracks released via IAMSOUND/Interscope Records.
They feel inviting, yet musically they hit hard. Of the mixtape Mk.gee notes, “I was in between homes last August and sleeping on couches for about 2-3 weeks. On the first day of being in a new spot, I set up my studio and made ‘Western’ start to finish in one session. It was really fucking manic energy. I don’t think I slept that night. Really manic. The next week I made ‘Overtime’ and finished the lyrics the following week in Europe on a train to Amsterdam really hungover. There are 20 revisions of that song in the hard drive, maybe more. It’s my favourite song off the tape.”
Mk.gee collaborated with Vegyn for the track ‘>;0’ and of that he says, “we made like 5 or 6 songs in the span of two days but this stuck with me because it had all the ingredients to be like a classic house/garage song but it turned out so polite sounding. I love polite breakbeats that just float around in tracks, like all of that Chicago jungle/wax doctor breakbeat stuff. I guess that was the inspiration subconsciously, though we made it fast. That’s how I like to do it sometimes. Everything pretty manic, move on, then you return when you feel a little less impulsive. Vegyn threw on chords and I added the break. The rest I don’t remember too well.”
