Brooklyn-based producer Marce Reazon already has career credits as a producer and engineer for the likes of John Legend, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Wale, Travi$ Scott, and Troy Ave. Thus, as a remixer, the tranquil cool required to work urban music’s top names is going to bleed over to anything he decides to give his own unique spin. Success has come quickly for Reazon, with two previous works hitting the top five on Hype Machine, and it’s entirely possible that applying jazzy trap vibes to rising duo Marian Hill’s single “One Time” could yield similar success. Chilled synths give the track a lo-fi feel, while the kicks and snares once only familiar to Southern rap’s tradition approach turning up. However, instead of the needle hitting 11, they stop somewhere in the five or six range for a unique, yet optimal soul groove.
