Rhythm Roulette With Marco Polo
Marco Polo sifts through sloppy crates at The Thing in Brooklyn and makes some heat out of three randomly chosen records.
This episode of Rhythm Roulette takes us to Brooklyn’s “The Thing” where we linked up with illustrious producer to the underground Marco Polo. The Toronto born, New York City-based producer made a name for himself when he moved to NYC from his Canadian home in the early 2000’s. Moving from sound engineer to full-fledged producer Marco Polo has worked with everyone from Masta Ace, to Boot Camp Clik, to the legendary Kool G Rap.
This episode gets a little interesting, before making his selection Marco Polo notes the special thing about “The Thing” is that there are no sections. No genres, no alphabetized selections just “epic vinyl madness” to choose from. Ending up with three singles, not albums to work with Marco Polo headed back to his home-studio in BK to get the chamber spinning.
Peep the video above to find out how Marco Polo used his trusty MPC2000XL to sift through this casserole of sound and weave some sonic gold. Vibe out to some jheri curled-out heavy bass and check back for more Rhythm Roulette coming soon. Don’t forget to go and pre-order Marco’s upcoming LP PA2: The Director’s Cut.
UPDATE: Marco Polo has released the full version of this beat for your streaming pleasure.
