This week we bring you a new track from California-based producer Mars Today. ‘Cool It’ comes off his forthcoming ‘Bits & Pieces’ EP on Text Me Records and serves to cement this man’s name firmly in our neo-soul books.
Breezy piano chords, a mellow trumpet and an off beat kick drum combine to bring a fresh slab of summer straight to your ears. With a voice that sounds like a softer Jon Bellion, it’s no wonder he’s killing it. Reminiscent of Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment, this track will have you dreaming of sunny Sundays no matter where you are.
Unlike some of the other producers we place as our track of the week, Mars Today has been working on his music for the last four years. As a result, his Soundcloud is littered with singles, remixes and covers to get stuck into. Each different and experimenting from R&B to trap, with different styles but all retaining that same touch of class.
According to Mars Today, this particular jam is one for the ‘Bedroom’ (I sense a new Somewhere Soul playlist on the horizon…) But until then, enjoy this head-nodding funk-fuelled beat.
