Cartier had worked on an early version of Marauding in Paradise as early as 2011, but was not satisfied with the album. After moving back to Toronto, he began working with record producer Michael Lantz, and released his first single “Set Fire” in 2014. Performing in Toronto-area music venues, he quickly attracted attention — his track “Switch” was regularly played at Toronto Raptors games by team DJ 4Korners, and at a Toronto Red Bull Sound Select show in March 2015 he was introduced by celebrity rapper Kardinal Offishall.
Marauding in Paradise was released in April 2015.
