Just when I thought I’d heard every possible variation on the “love song” theme, someone comes along with a concept that’s completely new to me. In this case, the “someone” is DMV buzzmaker (and DJBooth.net Freestyle Series alum) Marky, bringing us a record based on his real-life romance with a deaf and mute woman. Along with its intriguing (and, as far as I know, very original) premise, mixtape inclusion Silent Beauty boasts the boardwork of a production heavyweight; hitmaking beatsmith Boi-1da (also featured today on Red Cafe‘s I’m Ill (Remix)) serves up a smooth blend of vibraphone, strings and piano as the emcee pays tribute to the girl who stole his heart without saying a single word. If this unconventional but undeniably touching track strikes a chord, you can find Silent Beauty, along with reader-acclaimed cut Victory Lap and much more on his Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 1 EP when it hits the ‘net next Tuesday, April 6.
