Marc Rebillet, the American Loopmaster and improvisation legend that rocked the BMX Warehouse in Pembroke last Sunday, has released an original song that he recorded in Malta.
From his hotel room. In his bedroom robe. And it’s pretty damn good.
Posted with nothing more than the caption ‘Don’t worry, baby’, the video has already racked up nearly 300,000 views and over 3,000 shares in less than 24 hours.
Marc Rebillet, who is known for his outrageous and original take on music, has been recording an original song in each city on his European Tour – but his Maltese track has already garnered more views than most of his other recent originals, which is a testament to the awesomeness of the Maltese Islands.
Maltese fans were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime show last Sunday when the Loopmaster himself dropped by the island
Marc Rebillet was brought over by Maltese promoters Undercover Llama and was supported by Maltese DJs Nicky Slim, Patman and I.YOU.
Saying the Maltese crowd was one of the best crowds he’s performed for in Europe, Marc Rebillet redefined what it means to improvise live by making beats based on the mere shouts and sounds emanating from the crowd.
He opened his set with a song that he created based on the audience chanting his name. You have to see it to believe it:
Soon enough, he was banging out beats inspired by everything from the phrase ‘Tal-Ostja‘ to Cisk, which he reminded the audience was “Malta’s finest”
In a glorious and very non-PC moment, a gentleman in the audience offered their mom to Marc, leading to chants of ‘Fuck His Mom’. Unfortunately, said gentleman failed to produce his mom, so no coitus actually took place.
Between Marc taking his shirt off to wear a bra someone had thrown onto stage, to his actually incredible beats, which ranged from funky disco to heavy trap, the crowd was enthralled, barely taking their eyes off the performer the whole time he was on stage.
After ten shows in a row, Marc Rebillet finally had a day off in Malta, in which he got a chance to relax and took in the cool February-in-Malta ambience. However, he promised to come back to Malta to see the sights, so this might not have been the last we see of the Loopmaster himself.
