Son of Mars has announced the release of his new Mixtape Series called “Pandora’s Box” which is expected to begin sometime at the end of Summer 2022.
This Series is Unique for the Hip-hop Musician / Producer as he wants to focus on his favorite Genre in the Industry which he likes to call “Caribbean Hip-Hop” which is composed of custom remixes, fresh melodies, and some of his native Caribbean instruments like the steel pan and conga/bongo drums. These types of mixes are consistently played by DJs in the New Jersey club scene.
If you aren’t familiar, mashups usually include just two songs or more that are seamlessly mixed. Some people can do this on production software like Ableton, Son of Mars is able to mix native Calypso and Soca music into his own Hip-Hop influenced songs. The creation is something in a new genre completely.
Due to this ensuing pandemic, most of us haven’t been able to see many Performances lately thanks to club and bar closures. But new age producer artists like Son of Mars spent their time creating new edits and releases to prepare for the return of live shows and concerts.
The producer/artist is planning on spending many weekends of the year touring and playing venues and clubs across the US, Mexico, and Canada.
“You go to one city, and it’s literally a hip-hop city, then you go to your next show somewhere else and it’s more Caribbean and Latin vibes. Why not introduce the two and blend them together, generating unique and creative blends called Caribbean Hip Hop for everyone to enjoy and love. We’ve seen it before with acts like Shaggy, Sean Paul, and Pitbull” Says, Son of Mars.
Son of Mars considers himself an Open Format producer, which allows him to use his creativity to blend multiple songs and genres together creating a unique and exciting show for his fans.
When asked what his favorite genre was, Son of Mars simply said: “Caribbean Hip-hop! I am a Caribbean head when I listen to music, but I love to produce Hip-hop and rap music sets.” But being an Open Format musician, he gets to play both along with other genres and reach a larger fan base.
Son of Mars has been producing mashups and remixes since he started his musical career. In Fact, the name Son of Mars came from his Caribbean roots rising from the red country known as Trinidad and Tobago. When this was discovered, friends and other producers started calling him Mars, and the name came to life.
Today, Son of Mars’ music stretches across different venues across different cities where he gets to showcase his creative style to all the partygoers. His favorite part about producing Caribbean Hip-hop is when he can perform his creations, people aren’t expecting that, and he just hears the excitement and screams from the people in the crowd. “It literally gives me goosebumps” says Mars.
Be sure to stay on the lookout for his project dropping later this winter.
