MERK is the latest up-and-coming collective out of New York. After dropping their first track “AMAZING,” the group decided to drop two tracks, “Shout” and “What I Want,” off of their forthcoming EP titled Loud. The EP is set to release “soon”.
The group delivers with powerful, ambient production on this track. The hard hitting drums and the use of reverb make the track seem like a war zone, while the bass-line in this track will have you bouncing in your seat. MERK tastefully uses samples from the Tears For Fears song with the same title for the chorus.
What I Want:
MERK once again comes through with the hard hitting production on this track. By sampling gun shots, the group effectively portrays what seems to be an inner conflict. The vocals on this track are not the focal point of the song and are instead blended into the beat to make the whole thing feel complete and natural.
It is clear that MERK will be part of the next generation of rap. Their hard hitting production and their unique use of vocals make this group one to watch out for in the future. MERK’s upcoming EP Loud is set to release “soon.” Keep an eye on True Too to find the latest updates from MERK.
