9 out of 12 songs.  Expect the next three followed by the final cover in to show in the next day.

The Past is Prologue is the first solo effort from Blackout Beat Production Company producer and song writer Marcos Garibay. Important moments in time are colorfully painted on a Latin canvas that incorporates elements of Merengue, Bachata, Flamenco, Kizumba, 3Ball, and Dance Hall, over percussion foundations that draw inspiration from Timbaland and The Neputunes. Marcos assembled a unique and extremely talented group of musicians to help bring his vision to life: his brother Armando Garibay (the other half of The Blackout Beat) and his band The Circus HouseJillian Grutta,Felicia Gallegos PettisLara Gallegos, Mia B., Emmett Arthur Collins III, and James Hurtado. The album explores the past, present and future while exposing a mainstream audience to a new fusion sound that carries The Blackout Beat’s signature. The Past is Prologue will be released as a special box set on June 28th, 2014.

New Song with Music Video From Long Awaited Marcos Garibay Album to Premier This Week

6 Mar

tihwgdEnter chapter one to producer, artist, and song writer Marcos Garibay’s musical adventure. Allow us to submit: This is How We Get Down; a bold, spicy, and infectious moment in time, painted on a latin canvas, over merengue rhythms and constructed by an almost bizzare combination of artists from who reside in many corners of the musical genre spectrum. This song is the first to be heard, the first to be seen and may likely be, the most danced to composition from this album by Marcos and The Blackout Beat

The wait is over to hear the project that Marcos has been working on for over a year.  This Thursday you can download the song This is How We Get Down for FREE.  The song features several artists that are frequent Blackout Beat collaborators.  (Check out the album artwork above to see who is in it, there might even be more than what’s listed on there too.)  And be sure to check back with us Friday for the premier of the music video!  Marcos’ album, The Past is Prologue will be released this May.


Marcos in The Studio Working on New Album

17 Sep


Last week was a great week as Marcos spent most of it in the studio working on music for the album that will accompany his A is for Authentic graphic novel.  He worked on beats, recorded vocals and worked with James Hurtado to record live guitar that will really make the album “authentic”.  Although the release of the ambitious project is still months away, it’s really shaping up to be something bigger than Marcos imagined.
