Mars IX continues to dominate a unique space in dance music with eclectic genre mixing and curiosity as to what will come next from them. This month, they’ve collaborated with Dynamique and Eihdz, together capitalizing on a splendid original feel with a vibrant classic house foundation. The writing and samples create sonic positivity as Mars IX is able to show another part of the versatility granting them 250K plays on just one release, major label signings, and strong social presence.
With “My Crew” still rising and “Nicotine” now following up, it is many layers of momentum that are making Mars IX’s music and image pop in 2020.
“Nicotine is a song about a constant struggle with one’s self. The balance between being an obsessive lover or heartless introvert is highlighted in the lyrics of the record. As the story unfolds, the lyricist’s metaphorical need for their partner’s love, like their need for nicotine, comes to light, proving that humans have a need for affection from other humans. Unfortunately, we believe that sometimes, people choose the wrong kinds of attention to fulfill their needs and we hope that when people hear this song, they’re able to disassociate themselves with negative kinds of love, attention, or affection that they are pursuing and are able to bring themselves into a place of positive energy and healing..” – Mars IX
“This song is a perfect blend of both Mars IX and Dynamique. My music has always been a blend of disco and house with remnants of summer, a perfect match to what Mars IX brings to the table. We all are personal friends, which just made the process of writing this track even more rewarding.” – Dynamique
