Stamp Out Reality, the new album by Marc & Jim is in stores on November 6.

Stamp Out Reality (Nov 6)

"Stamp Out Reality" offers a diverse mix of styles and moods that reflects perfectly where Marc, the pioneering hip-hop DJ, and Jim, the classical trained jazz pianist, are coming from and where they are heading to. Classic hip-hop joints with Mr. Lif and Mr. Complex are sitting right next to the madness of porn-funk godfather Blowfly and the latin-tingled future jazz of Malena Perez from NY. Marc and Jim pay hommage with cover versions of the b-boy classic "The Mexican" and the 80s electro smasher "Al Naafiysh" while keeping the breaks intact with floor-shakers like "Wah-Wah-Wah".

RARE OCCASION (Oct 23) - Presale

Marc Hype & Jim Dunloop – Rare Occasion / Al Naafiysh 12" (Oct 23). Pre-sale on our webstore is on!
The limited double a-side DJ 12" will hit the stores on Oct 23. "Rare Occasion" is a latin flavoured jazz dance monster feat. Malena Perez (New York / Berlin) and not your typical Marc & Jim jam at all. Beware of the funk flute and the epic remix from Kid Gusto (Tru Grooves, Washington DC).
"Al Naafiysh (The Soul)" pays tribute to one of THE defining electro-tracks by Hashim. Marc & Jim re-build the classic in true stamp-out fashion.
