Marco Polo "What's The Digg?" (Mix)


Marco Polo's production revolves around his use of samples, and his style is somewhat comparable to that of Pete Rock and DJ Premier, the latter of which he names as his greatest influence. To give a more authentic effect to his production, he will individually sample drum sounds and arrange them to create his own "breaks." He often uses bass to enhance melodies he has sampled. In the "What's The Digg?" series, MIL compiles and DJ DJAZ mixes a bunch of Marco's production and samples to give a nice selection of tracks to showcase his production style. The mix features O.C., Ruste Juxx, Sean Price, Large Professor, Torae, Organized Konfusion and the relevant samples. You should definitely check it out below, and catch Marco Polo on tour if you're out in Europe.
