Product Details

Summary

Don't let the name fool you. Producer Marco Polo is more time traveler than explorer. In the past decade, this T.O. native has been transporting listeners to an alternate dimension, somewhere between the 90s and the present, via a finely tuned drum machine and a magic sliver of vinyl handed down to him by a secret society of producers. Well, at least that's what his music sounds like.

"My sound is definitely boom bap, I could never deny that. But I feel like it's an updated sound," says Marco, born Marco Bruno, who started making music in 1999 after buying an MPC drum machine with student loan money. The MPC and a pack of Newports as his sole accomplices, Marco made a bold move to NYC in 2001. As an assistant Engineer at renowned recording studio, The Cutting Room, MP honed technical skills and got to know some of the rap game's finest as he refined his production chops.

The Marco Polo production credit quickly began to hold more and more weight, with production placement on projects from legends such as Masta Ace and Boot Camp Click. MP's discog of features, collaborations and solo projects grew steadily, leading to the 2007 release of the critically acclaimed "Port Authority." This debut production album – featuring a who's-who of MC heavyweights including Large Professor, Kool G Rap and Buckshot – was a career milestone that claimed his place as one of the new school's most respected beatmakers.

Fast-forward 5 years... The production credits continue to grow and MP has been seeing the world, connecting with the international hip-hop community. He is expanding his creative horizons into the world of licensing, having landed some noteworthy soundtracks, including a original song on the OST for the feature film "Kick-Ass 2". He has provided the theme music for comedian Russell Peters' performances and DVD's and his original production was selected as the official theme song for the Brooklyn Nets telecast on the YES network, This highly dramatic and energetic instrumental – with horns inspired by the Menahan Street Band's "Make the Road By Walking" (made popular by Jay-Z's hit "Roc Boys" ) – caught the attention of a colleague on YES's licensing team. In a classic case of clandestine timing, Marco's theme found them in the 9th inning of their search for the perfect theme.

Fueled by the excitement of these opportunities and the exposure they have provided, his focus remains on his love of producing songs with his favorite MC's and DJ's. This summer will see the release of the long-awaited, most anticipated follow-up production album "PA2: The Director's Cut."

The lead single is a tribute to the late Keith Elam of Gang Starr, known to most as Guru, who passed away on April 19, 2010 due to complications from cancer. In addition, Marco reunites Organized Konfusion on "3 O'Clock" and King Tee and MC Eiht bring the hydroponic flows on "West Coast Love." On the aptly titled "Astonishing" Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C. and Tragedy Khadafi trade bars over a monster beat featuring scratches by DJ Revolution.

"The album is called 'PA2: The Directors Cut,' because it's 19 songs. If you've got A.D.D. this is not the album for you."

With highly anticipated releases and exciting touring opportunities on the immediate horizon, MP's momentum increases constantly and the opportunities to create music that he loves continue to grow. Needless to say Marco Polo is intent on staying at the top the hip-hop heads' playlists while expanding the audience and helping the genre evolve sonically for years to come.

Comment: This album is like listening to a DoPE Hip Hop radio station if there was one. Marco Polo is a DoPE producer and dropped a lot of DoPE albums this year. I bought every single one. This is the first time I heard The Doppelgangaz on someone else's beat besides theirs and it came out RAW!! This album is far from wack so I don't know what ya'll be listening too if you think this isn't great. Salute Marco Polo for dropping gem albums

Comment: Ok, gotta say I was a bit torn on this one. I'd give it more like 3.5 stars. For a producer of Marco's caliber, I gotta say I was expecting some better guests and more hard-hitting beats. I could do without the Rah Digga track, the "Savages" track, and a couple others (although "What They Say" is crazy!!). With that said, still a good effort and worth your hard-earned dollars. I think ppl on here tend to get a little extreme at times on these comments. This album is definitely not garbage. It's a good album that if consolidated some (I don't care what Rapaport says...it's too long), leaving only choice tracks, it would've been received in a totally different light. But, regardless I'm keeping it in rotation. Thx Marco.

Comment: What's the point in pressing badly mastered digital files to vinyl? And on top of that 180g vinyl. This label has no clue at all what REAL audiophile pressings sound like. They listen to their test presses on stantons and shit!!! These jokes at sos are making utter fools out of the people buying their shit. Instead of getting ass raped by little Dick and crew SAVE your money. Throw it to the side into a UPGRADE SYSTEM fund! You'll be amazed at just how bad these records sound on a REAL system i.e. DITCH the bullshit DJ equipment!

Comment: I'm all about supporting Marco because this album is dope and I have most of his stuff on wax, but this vinyl is mad expensive! I understand it's 3LP, but still $32.00 a bit steep. I was really lookin' forward to coppin' this on wax though to add to the collection. I also don't understand how they're calling this "Deluxe Edition". From what I can see, there is this edition and the green splatter vinyl which is labeled as "Special Edition" and is $44.00. That would make this the regular black wax edition which is why I can't grasp the pricetag. I just hope it's the record company setting this high price and not Marco because it borders offensive to me as a fan.

Comment: @Mr Boogengle, The Alchemist is dope so I do agree with you on that. I think he catches a lot of flack by going in other directions with some of his material. How can one grow if you do not experience in other criteria's with your music? I can not wait for the "Stepbrothers" album. Hopefully it sounds like the EV "Layover EP". Madlib will forever be dope. He has so much music to listen to it's hard to keep up. Did you like the Talib Kweli "Liberation" project he did with Madlib? Sid Roams dope! I do like Illmind but I also think he is inconsistent with his work. I liked the Skyzoo project he did with him. Nottz has a lot of potential but I personally think he is lazy. He is up there with M-Phazes for me. Both are very talented though. Good shit Boog!! @ Soundmastah, I agree with all of your comment period. Although I will admit that some of the artists you mentioned I am not that aware of so I guess I will have to do my homework a little more lol. Finally, if I were to mention a top 30 MC list, I would be here for ever because I wouldnt just name anyone for that list. When you mean top 30 MC list, do you mean present and past or just present? I am sure Soundmastah will have it covered either way lol!!! I am sure Oddisee will be on that list or anyone from the diamond district. For me, I am old school but I would also say Apathy, Blacastan, Celph Titled, EV, R.A. the Rugged Man, Masta Ace, J-Live, Slug (Atmosphere), Brother Ali, Nas, GZA, huge fan of Kweli but he needs to step his game up, Skyzoo got lyrics, Torae, Black Thought, Heiro, One Belo, Blu. I could go on but the other heads on here can probably lay down some other artists to check out. Peace

Comment: To add, what I meant by "inconsistencies" is that these producers are inconsistent with their sound/mode of production. For instance, as soon as the needle hits the groove you know its a DJ Premier sound because of the snares,hi-hats & kick drums plus the way the sample is chopped. but you see cats like iLLmind/9th Wonder and others deviating from sample-based sound to more electronic-based sounds and back. To me that's inconsistent. But they still have what it takes to get back to that sound that made us all fall in love with them in the first place. Other producers who are keeping it real with that boom-bap/soulful sound include Soulchef, Terem, Vintage, Chief, SciFi Stu, Brickbeats, Tha S Ence, Dela. There are also a lot of dope emcees out there but it all depends on their subject matter and what interests you about their music. You can check out Beneficence - Concrete Soul (2012), KON Sci(of MindsOne) - And Beyond (2013), Wyld Bunch - Unbreakable (2013), Rashad & Confidence - The Element Of Suprise (2010). There are others, but this is what I can think of for now. Peace!

Comment: First of all Black Milk didnt steal Dillas style, his beats are more potent and darker, Dillas were just more experimenting with different sounds....Alchemist is good, he rhymes well and he can produce some fire, I think NoNDescript is doing it, Confidence, Apollo Brown, Panik, Colombeyond, True Master is who I got my focus on, he is like Wu-Tangs Pete Rock...

Comment: @D-Stroi, For me, Alchemist is one of the best right now but that my opinion. I like Marco Polo to, he have some tight beats! I also like J Dilla, Madlib, Nottz, Sid Roams, Illmind, Khrysis, Dj Khalil, M-Phazes, Denaun Porter. I liked 9th wonder to but I think he reached his limit on the last Buckshot & 9th Wonder, his beats where really wack! I like Black Milk but like I said, he stole J Dilla's style. Peace

Comment: @Mr Boogengle, What is a top notch producer in your book or who? I agree with most of your comment but I also think Premo and Pete are most relevant in the hip hop game today. Scott Storch should have just stayed with the Roots but hey, everyone needs to make a buck. The only material I liked from Dre was the NWA and Chronic shit, other than that, I can't relate. Since I have grown up on the east coast, I was exposed to the Jeru's, Big L's, Junior Mafia's, Jamal, Gangstarr and the WU just to mention a few. My first tape my Mom got me was the Public Enemy "It takes a Nation of Millions to Hold us back". First cd's I ever bought with my own money when I was 14 was the Keith Murray "Most Beautifullest" and Method Man's "Tical". I was exposed at a young age so I love this shit!!! Of course I was big on Pac growing up but now my favorite groups out of the west consist of: Zion I, P.U.T.S, Heiroglyphics, Dilated People's, Planet Asia, Tha Liks, Defari and even Xzhibit's first two albums were dope. DJ Kwestion works for Jedi right? or is their main DJ for the group? I gotta keep up on this shit I guess lol. @soundmastah, I think the Da Beatminerz are dope and have been in the game for a while holding bootcamp down for a minute but, shouldnt they also be on your list of inconsistencies? What have they done recently? Nottz ok, and M-Phazes ok. I will definitely check out Confidence though. Bigups people!! out

Comment: Stu and Vanderslice: too much on Alchemist nuts... The sound that they do is what Alchemist done in the early 2000's... Dr Dre: I don't consider him as a producer. We all know that he took credit on other producers. half of chronic 2001 was done by Mel-man. "still dre" was done by Scott Storch... his first Chronic album was done by Dre but also Daz Dillinger, no credited. All his work at death row was done by DAZ and also Sam Sneed... His last single "Kush" was not done by him but by Dj Khalil. So I think he is not that much talented Premo: one of the best hip hop producer ever but I think he did his time. It's not the 90's preemo anymore... Pete Rock: same as preemo, he did his time but stay a legend Black Milk: Great producer but to much on Dilla's nuts... He clearly took his style

Comment: Eric Lau is good also, NoNDescript, Kyo Itachi, Presto is also good, DJ Kwestion, Illastrate, True Master, Ackryte sounds ill on a couple listens which I found, JBL the Titan, Exile, Kon Sci--very ill, Damu I need to listen more too...K-Kruz looks like he drops in every or little so often, ill name and heard some skills on the boards however... DJ Spinna I grew up on but he seems to have disappeared unless he is ultra underground, Lewis Parker makes some airtight beats I know he is from England, Illinformed is also good..I agree with the producers who lacked in consistency on your list, you pointed out some dudes

Comment: I guess we will just agree to disagree on some accounts respectively lol. I agree with the Kanye statement. He is corny but can make some good quality tracks when he wants to and when he wants to stop having a big head thinking he is the greatest/genius type shit. The GZA is the only genius in my book!! The last Black Milk album I purchased was the Tronic album. Shit was dope with different sounds all the way through out. I was always big on Kweli ever since the Mood: Doom album. Been a fan since, however, I do agree with your assessment of radio friendly tactics on his behalf. I wish he never changed his flow. He should have stuck with the manifesto/fortified live shit. I completely understand with trying to switch things up and go a different direction with your sound but I think he lost a lot of supporters with his move. Preachy or conscious? I personally think he covers all topics of music tailored to all different types of listeners but again, he is not for everyone. El-P pro-homosexual lyrics lol? I dont understand? Dude makes crazy beats whether it's jazz or eclectic hiphop genre's but I do respect your opinions. good shit. All of the other artists mentioned that I am not fully aware of I will look into and listen to their music. I am very diverse when it comes to all music but my main love is hip hop so I am ready to take on some new material lol!!! Bigups PROVO!!!!!!!

Comment: Yo homy, a big shout out to you for being in the same line as far as rap goes.... J57 is a producer and emcee from Brown Bag, he can flow and that crew Brown Bag is tight as a whole, EV is a solid rhymer, his beats do need some more soul and some harder drums for him to get better and better, I do think EV is great however, hip hop embodied with him for sure...Marco Polo to me is pretty weak to me, he never phased me really, he is successful in his own right, but he doesnt bang out very great tunes in my ears and his production is not always up to par, I never liked Rustee Juxx really, small man+big mouth complex over there, Torae can spit some proper bars though...Confidence can make some heavy soulful yet thumping 90s era hardcore beats...very solid, I really like Black Milk...very amazing his album sounds amazing according to snippets, Ayatollah and Sean Price would make a heater of an album....Hi-Tek was never on my radar, train of thought by Talib Kweli is probably his last 'just ok, 11/20 album' I personally think Kweli is wack and too preachy, a bit annoying for my tastes, he should just be a rapper making raps for club songs if he wants to make radio friendly tracks, preachy raps are not for me...Dilla made some very layered beats, one of a kind and he had a playboy swag which was cool, not all underground nerdish...Apollo Brown is hitting legendary, a few more sure shot bangers and he will be hall of fame hip hop...Ant from Atmosphere is good but he disappeared, Stoupe was also good...I never got into them really to be honest. Kanye is a Hollywood guy he is not in the raw rap category, he is more hollywood weird but he got Kardashian so he did something right....El-P is not my style he has very pro-homosexual lyrics and I cannot respect that garbage...I like to hear a good PRIMO and SPIT GEMZ joint or maybe a Roc Marciano and Apollo Brown joint......or a 9th wonder and Sean Price, Action and Madlib would be a classic tag team....hip hop needs to make use of these artists in good ways to combine sick rhymers with highly regarded producers

Comment: What up homy!!!!, Yo much respect. All of your choices are dope. I forgot about Kev Brown, whoa!! Panik from the molemen is crazy!! J57 is Soul Khan's DJ right? Brown Bag Allstars? I agree with you on the EV tip but he is one of my favorite all around artists of all time. Anyone that can write, produce and succumb to graffiti art is cool in my book. Marco Polo to me is consistent but again that is my opinion. Loved him on the Torae (double barrel) album. He even had some dope banga's on the Ruste Juxx album. Put it this way homy, would you not cop an album produced by Marco Polo lol? I heard of Confidence but never peeped his music but now I will. thanks for the heads up on that. Ayatollah is dope as well. Even that beat he did on that R.A. the rugged man shit with Emile was crazy (just to name one). I am not too familiar with K-Def? What projects can I catch him on? And yes, Hi-Tek is no Premo but then again who is? They are two different styles in itself but one of my favorite albums of all time is "train of thought" so that has nostalgic reasoning behind my pick for him. Dilla passing away is a sin. That dude was a master on the drums. The only people that come close to him in my mind is Apollo Brown, (old) Kanye, and El-P. What do you think about Ant from atmosphere? I think that dude is talented at looping. Not as good as Pete Rock or Premo but Ant is dope. I will check out the other cats you mentioned. It's always good to learn more about the culture and who is out there making good music. Just when you think you know it all, you really don't. Good looks homy

Comment: I will say all good choices, I am glad to see you are on with the hot shit in hip hop D-Stroi, good looking.....lot of producers out there are not as consistent as the dudes I mentioned, polo is ok but he is not amazing by no stretch...also Hi-Tek no Premo by any means, no Dilla either...which is the same thing, guys Im checking for now a bit: 1. Confidence 2. 14KT 3. Maybe Harry Fraud as he nailed Saab Stories 4. Evidence seems like he can produce bangers when he puts himself in the music 5. I can see K-Def...also heating up, give him a few more rounds and he will be a premier beat producer..... 6. DJ Khalil maybe again 7. E-Swift from tha Liks can be something still have to see more from him now, hes good though 8. Ayatollah 9. Audible Doctor 10. J57 11. Kev Brown 12. 12 Finger Dan 13. Mr. Brown 14. Panik....just some extra dudes to look out for

Comment: Good shit. Mr. Green had a dope beat on the R.A. the rugged man joint "learn truth". crazy beat. Madlib has always been a favorite of mine. I like his shades of blue project. Beatnuts are crazy "no escapin this"!!! thats my shit. Colombeyond is doing big things over there in CT. Blacastan got himself a dope producer to work with. Khyrsis is dope but I wish he was a little more consistent with his work but none the less he is dope. How was the last Stu Bangas/Vanderslice album? I want to cop that but wasnt sure
