Marcus Woods creates a “floating world” on new track

“I wanted to create a “floating world” with ‘Ukiyo’, something that wasn’t as dark or moody as my previous works, with more of a celestial feel to it.”

 

One of our favourite things about young producer Marcus Woods is how bored he seems to get with genres. When he was just 16 we were struck by his maturity as a hip hop beatmaker and since then he has gone on to dip his toes into more ambient soundscapes, trap and in January he went down something of a footwork route with ‘Saturn V’. All while smack bang in the middle of doing his Leaving Cert.

He’s now released another new one. Here’s what he said about the track over at the premiere on Nialler9,

“‘Ukiyo’ is Japanese term referring to the “floating world”, which consists of living in the moment and becoming detached from the bothers and worries of life; this was the exact concept I fuse within this track. I wanted to create a “floating world” with ‘Ukiyo’, something that wasn’t as dark or moody as my previous works, with more of a celestial feel to it.”

Marcus Woods plays at District’s stage at Bulmers Forbidden Fruit on June 1.
