Marlowe

BBC 6 Music 'Album Of The Year' (2018) - Lauren Laverne

L’Orange & Solemn Brigham are Marlowe “An artist afraid to overreach himself is as useless as a general who is afraid to be wrong.”

Marlowe is a collaborative alt-rap project from North Carolina-based hip-hop producer L’Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham. Their unique blend of quick-fire vocals and dusty breakbeats is most well-known on tracks such as ‘Lost Arts’ and ‘Tales From The East’.

The project came together in 2018 with the intent of marrying Brigham’s lyrics concerning social commentary, police brutality, and poverty with L’Orange’s thudding beats and crackling vinyl samples to achieve a new, refreshing take on hip-hop in modern times. Their debut collaboration Marlowe, chosen as Lauren Laverne‘s BBC 6 Music Album of the Year [view here].

Marlowe 2 seeks to continue that legacy… out on Mello Music Group in August 2020.
