Bio: redveil

Marcus Morton’s world is practically unrecognizable from the one he inhabited just about a year ago, when he released his third album as redveil, learn 2 swim. The project was a hit amongst his devotees, who obsessed over earlier projects like 2020’s Niagara, but also introduced him to a wider audience than ever before. learn 2 swim highlight “pg baby” has racked up over 20 million streams on Spotify alone. redveil hasn’t just become a fixture in the indie rap community, but one of the most exciting promising upstarts in the game, period. So, with the world at your fingertips what’s next? For veil, that question is easy. More music in the form of a new EP, playing w/ fire, a headlining tour US tour that includes already-sold-out dates in New York, Seattle, Chicago, Columbus, DC, and waking up each day with the expressed goal of perfecting his already-inimitable craft.

playing w/ fire is only six tracks, but redveil packs the EP with captivating ideas and his strongest songwriting to date. Tracks like “giftbag” reemphasize redveil’s greatest strengths while introducing new styles and ideas that help make the project both a post-learn 2 swim momentum play and a certified treatise in its own right. Laced with a shimmering keyboard line and blown out bass blasts, veil cooks up a stadium-ready anthem, equal parts melodically infectious and full of swagger. redveil spits, “I’m in a rush can’t be sick I won’t get bad/ ‘Cuz I’ma touch all my dreams, not no kickback.” The track hits the sweet spot between instantly quotable and the kind of song that lingers long after its run time.

For redveil, “captain” best encapsulates his growth and development as an artist. “It’s such a cool representation of all of the different points of influence for me musically, which makes it not only one of my favorite songs on the project, but that I've ever made,” he explains. While redveil isn’t making go-go music by any stretch of the imagination, playing with fire reflects DMV sensibilities that he’s mostly steered away from on other projects. “I still remember where I come from,” he adds.

For redveil, the accolades and sold out shows are nice, but the thing that really stops him in his tracks when he thinks about it is that he gets to rap for money. “ I'm really just a student and a child of this rap culture. I have been my whole life,” he explains. Whether or not that feeling will go away is up for debate, but playing w/ fire shows how much joy redveil gets from rapping. “It’s the best feeling in the world. It’s my entire life and being,” he explains, before adding, “It can't be anything less.”
