David Marston is a producer and DJ from Philly by way of Jamaica, and it’s no surprise that his roots Kingston play a major part in his earthy, deep-house beats. It’s clubby-sounding, but way too intimate for a club setting. Cool keyboard interludes, light xylophone tones, island drums and soulful vocals seem to be a consistent recipe for Marston’s smooth tracks.
Marston is signed to electro-world label Soul Clap. He recently released an EP through Soul Clap titled Jamaicalia, which you can stream here. On July 9th, he will play a show at Silk City along with A Sol Mechanic, JXL Beats and Maybewise. You can find full event details here.
