Markis Precise is a music producer and keyboardist from Fresno, California. In the early 2000s, Markis took to time-honored traditions of crate digging to create the sample-based soundscapes that helped kick-start Central California’s independent hip-hop scene.
The fact his region was slept on fostered Markis’ drive, one cultivated not only from years of selling music out the trunk but also from the humility of making beats that went unheard.
Markis’ production later evolved to incorporate his lifelong training as a keyboardist, expanding the boundaries of chopped boom bap with the melodic elements unique to live instrumentation. His 2012 release Impressions illustrated this concept with his own interpretations of the legendary producers that inspired him.
Markis spent 2015 true to his collaborative ethos, as he independently reached out to some of hip-hop’s most talented artists to contribute to his album The Feeling Of Flying. The album features guest appearances by Brother Ali, Fashawn, Elzhi, Oddisee, Zion I, The Grouch, Eligh, Ras Kass, Gift Of Gab, Strong Arm Steady, Sol, and Chuuwee. In its first week of release, The Feeling Of Flying became the number one added hip-hop album on the national CMJ radio charts. Since then, Markis has spent the majority of time collaborating on freelance projects, while continuing to expand his music theory and instrumentation. As of 2019, he is currently working on his second full-length album.
