Giovanni Marks aka Subtitle drops an exclusive mix with Sound Colour Vibration (SCV Podcasts 99)

Giovanni Marks also known as Subtitle has been cross merging hip hop with different genres since the beginning of his career as an MC and producer in the 90’s. Never holding himself to one spot but always dedicated to the culture of hip hop that is his primary influence, his talents, creativity and diversity led him to be one of the few hip hop acts signed to independent label Gold Standard Laboratories. With connections from everyone in the indie and hip hop worlds, Subtitle has always blurred the genres together unlike anyone else. His time has been fruitful in the music community over the last 15 years and his new organization Brief Case Rockers is a collective that shows the results of all of this hard work. Comprised of like minded musicians, artists, film makers and so much more, Briefcase Rockers will surely be around for a long time to come.

Giovanni Marks spent a lot of time in Europe the last few years and has come back to live in his native region of Los Angeles this year. It was only right that Low End Theory welcomed him back home with a headlining performance. You always get something a little new at Low End and it was no different for Subtitles performance. If you don’t own any records from Subtitle, I highly recommend checking out Terrain To Roam (Alpha Pup Records). The 2006 full length release has production from Madlib, Dntel, Daddy Kev, Paris Zax, Nobody, Omid, Thavius Beck, Daedelus, Small Is Beautiful, Crunc Tesla and others. Owning a copy is a must.

We contacted Giovanni earlier this year right before he came back to the the States to take part in our music podcast series. He graciously accepted and got us this very extensive and heavily edited digital mixtape with speed. We decided to wait on this release as we wanted to schedule it around the time our other guests who have agreed started to submit their mixes. This mix covers the full range of sound, from ambient/noise to super pop. Music cultures are bridging more and more in these times and this mix shows how this new age is fostering a different approach to breaking down walls that existed in large before the 21st century. Now Madonna can be on a mix with Sun Ra; a merge we welcome with open arms. Giovanni is a musician who is as seasoned, creative and talented as any producer or MC out today, so please enjoy this mix that he has given the world to enjoy for free.
