Born in Fresno, California, producer and keyboardist Markis Precise took to time-honored traditions of crate-digging to create the sample-based soundscapes that contributed to Central California’s independent hip-hop scene in the early 2000s.
His 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 connected with some of hip-hop’s most talented artists to contribute to his album The Feeling Of Flying. The album features collaborations with 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, with various tracks receiving steady airplay on both commercial and non-commercial radio stations, as well as positive reviews on publications and media outlets.⁣
In May 2020, Markis Precise released a new full-length album No Wings Without Scars which features collaborations with Talib Kweli, Conway the Machine, Murs, Brother Ali, Locksmith, Fashawn, Ill Camille, The Grouch, Eligh, Reuben Vincent, Stro, and Jon Keith.
