About Marco Polo
Beats are life. Marco “Polo” Bruno, by way of Toronto and now making his home in Brooklyn, lives by this mantra. In a few short years the T. Dot native has gone from green producer with a new MPC 2000XL to a highly sought after purveyor of boom-bap, laying down tracks for the likes of Masta Ace, Boot Camp Clik and Sadat X. Polo’s creative sampling, knocking drums and throwback grooves are fresh and never dated. In addition to Seize the Day, his 2013 efforts will include the free LP Newport Authority 2 and the highly anticipated Port Authority 2, the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut album Port Authority which came out in 2007 on Rawkus // Soulspazm.
