Life & Work with Marcus Quick

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marcus Quick.

Hi Marcus, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
My name is “QUIXKmadeit” I’m originally from Hillsborough, North Carolina, I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m a music producer. I have been producing music for almost two years now. I originally came across the idea of producing music because of my older brother. He had an old laptop that had FL Studio downloaded on it when I was like 13 years old. One day he just randomly decided to have me make a beat for a song that he wanted to try and make. That was the first time I ever even had the idea of producing. I created a beat for him and he rapped over it. The feeling I got from that moment even though I didn’t think the beat was very good looking back at the moment now, now I realize that is what sparked my love for producing. I stepped away from music production after that though unfortunately and just recently decided to pick it back up a couple of years ago. The reason I ended up getting back into it is because there are so many great Las Vegas artists and although I don’t rap, I wanted to contribute in my own way. I linked up with my boy “Kenyadda” and we started making music. I started a couple of years ago and I haven’t looked back.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
As far as the road being smooth, I would say I am very fortunate to have so many talented artists in the area that are willing to work. I’m very fortunate and blessed in that regard because I know it isn’t always easy to find artists that are willing to trust you with creating a sound together. The only struggles I would say I have right now is just building the connections to work with bigger artists. I know that it all comes with time and right now, I’m doing everything that I can to make it happen. The bigger placements will come when it’s time but it’s definitely a goal that I’ve set for myself moving into 2022.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m a music producer. I specialize in Hip Hop and RnB mainly. I do have some reggae-ton tracks out right now though. Although I’m not the biggest producer in the world yet, around my side of town in Las Vegas people are getting to know me for fantastic production. I think the quality and quantity that I put forward can’t be matched. I think what sets me apart from other people in my area is just my work ethic. I’m okay with someone saying that another producer is maybe more skilled than I am but one thing they won’t be able to say is that someone worked harder than me to make their dreams happen.

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
Coming from a small town in North Carolina, I just love seeing all of the lights around town. I also love that there aren’t really in bugs outside. My only real complaint about the city is just how hot it gets in the summer months. It gets up to like 110-120 sometimes and that’s just unbearable some days.
