Eric Dontè and Black Marble Collective first linked up a few years ago in Downtown Los Angeles when Eric was touring the Westcoast. Once hearing and witnessing the incredible live performance BMC could not deny the magnetic energy and organic appeal. We knew instantly we needed to work with this unique talent. We then invited him to join us at our SXSW #Hyperlink event and also performed with him in Las Vegas at Soft Leather.
After a few successful shows we took our favorite song of his and asked some of our producers and friends to remix it for a very special remix EP. These amazing tunes are the result. Bass Smackin styles from around the globe. France to Brooklyn. This album flexes a range of eclectic sounds, Rap, Beats, 160BPM, Footwork, and FDM (Flex Dance Music)
