Markis Precise Background:
Fresno, California native Markis Precise is in a truly rare position. Entering his debut solo album, The Feeling Of Flying (TK), Mark is also a decorated veteran. In the 15 years between the breakthrough release featuring Brother Ali, Fashawn, Ras Kass, Zion I, Oddisee, and others, the producer and musician honed his style, and fulfilled a lifelong passion. Identifying a plethora of his own personal favorite MCs, the Sacramento-based musician cold-called his collaborators. The Feeling Of Flying contains accents, adjustments, and highlights around each MC’s concept, adding to the true collaborative process in the digital age. Do-it-yourself for Mark, has evolved to do-it-ourselves. With his 13-track album, the producer aims to continue his journey through music. Returning to one of his dreams, the producer is not driven by fortune or fame, but rather to reach listeners, the way he was reached—by music. Cohesive, thematic, and evocative, The Feeling Of Flying soars above the expectations of a compilation work. However, for Markis Precise, the moment manifests a vision and purpose he has been elevating for 15 years.
