Behind The Beats – Marco Polo (Exclusive Video)

9 Nov

Within the past decade or so, Toronto, Canada has proven to be a special breeding ground for a, well, special breed of both the emcee and producer type. Putting aside the obvious circle of T-Dot “celebrities” that includes Drake, the OVO camp and The Weeknd, the capital of Ontario has given us incredible talent such as K’naan, k-os,Kardinal Offishall, Classified and one of the hardest working producers East of the Mississippi, Marco Polo.

Marco, known for his early boom-bap work with the late Pumpkinhead has gone on to stack up production credits for the likes of Block McCloud, Masta Ace, Supernatural, Skyzoo, Pharoahe Monch, Your Old Droog, Rah Digga and more. The list is near endless.

Recently, Alkota (of The Drum Broker) sat down with the authority of the MPC to discuss his come up in the game, the increasing contrast in technology since stepping in the arena, what’s in store for him in the future and more. It’s a lengthy feature, clocking in at almost 20 minutes, but for the up-and-coming beatmaker/producer, it’s loaded with lots of information and small trade secrets that you simply cannot pass up.

“It’s been a minute, but we’re back at it, finally. After a few hiccups on my end, we’ve linked up with our buddy Alkota (of Drum Broker) as we continue on with our official Behind The Beat series.

So far, we’ve covered VA’s finest, Nottz, and A$AP Ferg producer Frankie P.

Today, we’re visiting our buddies Divided Souls Production as they take us into their studio and break down the science behind Havoc’s hard-as-nails “What I Rep” remix featuring Nutso & Sheek Louch.

In the beat breakdown video, they explain how they incorporated sounds from the Drum Broker library and how they created the dirty, grimey soundscape, with scratches by DJ Pain 1.”
