Today we get to premiere MERK's debut EP Loud!
MERK is a collective whose members hail from an international background and are based between New York and Montréal. Their sound accurately reflects this diversity and make for a remarkable story on how the arts mirror human progress across continents and lineages.
Throughout this gem of an EP, MERK deliver anthem after anthem - Motivational is an understatement. Versatile flows over the most entrancing of soundscapes ! Oh, and best of all they have a message, just bump track #5 (our fav.) ✊
Stream the tape + Peep our sweet interview with them below ⤵️
What's your story / Who is MERK ?
MERK is a family, a lifestyle, a phenomenon. We all come from different parts of the world but the stars were aligned in such a way that brought us together. The stars are aligning and we’ve been bound by music and blood for a long time.
Where do you call Home / What's your connection to Montréal ?
NEW YORK is definitely home, but were spreading the movement worldwide. Some of us split time between Montréal and New York & we consider it to be our second headquarters. Be ready for that live MERK show in MTL in 2016.
What are some of your biggest influences (music, movies, video games, anything!) ?
Quincy Jones, God, Scarface, immortality in general. The fact that there are 7 billion people in the world that could fuck with us. Also ourselves. If MERK isn’t influencing MERK, then something’s not right.
If you could rid the world of one evil, what would it be ?
Which chapter in your career does your debut EP Loud! represent ? / What's next ?
This shit is the seed of the most exotic plant that will ever grow. It’s like the writing on the wall: no gas, but Loud! is deadass a prophetic scripture whose predictions will become reality in the near future.
