Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

It’s only June, and it’s safe to say this year has already bodied ‘14 musically. There’s dope shit out across the board album-wise, and in addition, there’s been a decent dose of non-LP freshness floating around, too. So as we say hello to summer, here’s 10 Loosies You May Have Slept On In 2015 (So Far).

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Marco Polo’s PA2: The Director’s Cut dropped yesterday and the album is a testament to the Toronto born beatsmith’s versatility and the respect he commands amongst his peers. From the heartfelt Guru tribute he worked on with DJ Premier to the historic reunification of Organized Konfusion, it’s clear this is a guy who can hold his own with the legends of the game.

For our latest installment of In The Lab, Ip caught up with the Newport enthusiast to learn more about his history and workflow. Marco was kind enough to break down his daily production routine and studio setup, favorite spots to dig for vinyl and his sample hunting philosophy. He also spoke on his early days working at The Cutting Room studios, the creation of “G.U.R.U.” and the theme song he created for the Brooklyn Nets.
