Dance music is accessible to anyone—I don’t care if you’re a gangster or a nerd. If you hear a certain groove, it’s going to move you. That’s why I really like to make dance music nowadays. I don’t care if it’s disco or electro or whatever. A good groove is going to move you regardless.
From Quavius – s/t EP
A home grown talent from Jacksonville, Florida, Quavius is a master selector able to flip genres with ease and style. First and foremost though he is a producer determined to get the sound of the South East out into the world.
It would be wrong to describe the music of Marquavius McDonald, aka Quavius, as hip-house exactly, but the Florida newcomer is a lot more in tune with the underground ethos of the genre’s earliest tracks, blending the hazy mood of cloud rap with classic deep house production.
