It is in 1999 that Jón Krey, after taking part in several rap collectives as a MC, tries beatmaking, exploring the classical side of hip hop, signing his beats under the enigmatic name Dropout Marsh. He cruises for several years in his compositions to different kinds of experimental electronica, trip hop hovering, or repetitive and industrial downtempo. His productions tend to move little by little towards his early hip hop influences. And since 2004, he shapes landscapes, sometimes soft and coloured, sometimes spatial, dusty or rusty, mixing liquid synthesizers and mysterious samples, nested in the heart of galopant and atypical beat, and crackling and dreamy basses. Music video director or video editor, Vj or rapper, its multiple influences collide and tangle in his music in perpetual motion, dense and vapourous.
