Homophobia and Rappers: A Thought from Marcos Garibay

29 Jul

“In terms of homophobia,  I think RAPPERS will be amongst the last of the humans to catch up with the rest of the world, on the right side of history.  Hearing things like “That’s gay” used by anyone that comes through the doors of The Blackout Beat recording or dance studio results in an immediate silence of music and a lecture from me about how they need to evolve/grow up before they come back through my doors.  I’m in business to make money but I don’t need it enough to ignore an ignorant quality among most rappers that’s become a norm. ”

A year after the release of their first album, Denver Pop music collective, The Circus House is readying the release of their new album, Flesh & Bones. Coming from The Blackout Beat Production Company, The Circus House has been one of Denver’s most exciting up and coming Electronic music acts. Flesh & Bone is a cutting edge mix of Electronica, House and R&B with a Pop sensibility. Armando Garibay (half of The Blackout Beat) adds his unique production while vocalists Abigail Freed, Marie Robertson, and Cadence Johnson shine with poetic lyrics and raw performances. The new album will be available early Summer 2013.
