Marjen is Marc Jensen, an instrumental downtempo/electronica musician and visual artist based in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. Melodies, bittersweet and sinister, with an odd abrasive moment are paired with intricate, drum heavy swinging percussion.
"There’s the underpinning of a springy, hip hop beat, and lots of Morricone-esque melodies." - acloserlisten (March 2014)
"Marjen could get away with a single idea per track, but he packs a lot into each arrangement. The beats are often busy with little idiosyncrasies that you could argue are there to keep the listener’s attention were it not for the fact that each track brims with ideas already. " - acloserlisten (March 2013)
"...Marjen takes elements from hip-hop and decomposes them into quaint, minimized textures... these exploratory windows are a reflective array of deconstructed hip-hop and percussive shards." - Igloo Magazine (March 2013)
