Listen to High Times, a funky new single from Nick Murphy collaborator Marcus Marr

The disco-tinged track is out now through the legendary DFA Records.

A few years ago now, the artist then known as Chet Faker linked up with London producer and DJ Marcus Marr for a four-track collaborative EP titled Work, which spawned a couple of really, really great tunes such as the seven-minute epic Birthday Card and the unavoidable, Hottest 100-charting The Trouble With Us. While Chet Faker has since rebranded to Nick Murphy and released a couple of stellar singles (the most recent being the dreamy Medication), Marcus Marr has been pretty quiet – until now. High Times is the newest track from the producer and it's an absolute classic, taking influence from the days of disco and acid-house for what has been perfectly summed up in the YouTube comments as a "funk slam dunk."

It's partially reminiscent of some of Touch Sensitive's stuff here in Australia, with tasteful guitar licks and nostalgic synth lines combining underneath a summery, soulful groove which will be pulsing through your brain for hours. Released through the legendary DFA Records (and [PIAS] in Australia), the single is an absolute treat which we really hope will give Marr the attention he deserves down here in Australia as a solo artist. Check it out below.
