‘History of the Loop Digga, 1990-2000, is a full-length hip-hop album by Madlib, chronicling his formative decade of underground beat-tape production.’
‘The Brain Wreckshow is a 61-minute DJ mixtape of global, psychedelic, progressive and hard rock and funk circa 1968-76.’
Lowbudget High-Fi Music, reviewing and projecting the series, with contributions from MED, Guilty Simpson, Strong Arm Steady, Karriem Riggins and AG, and a Jaylib-era track earmarked for the not-to-be second album.
Fourteen tracks of straight-up hip hop — with Detroit rapper Frank Nitt.
LPs come in a silk-screened sleeve (as well they might at that price).
An hour-long hip-hop mixtape, with numerous MCs. Bafflingly unpleasant artwork inside.
Bestride worldwide underground rock scenes from the 1960s through the 80s: US psychedelia, Krautrock, acid-soaked Spanish prog-rock, synth oddities and all.
Old-school soul from the Blackalicious camp.
Featuring guest verses from Blu, MED, Ron Artiste, Souls of Mischief, Gangrene, Georgia Anne Muldrow and co. With a bonus flexi-7.
The complete works of the Bay Area vibraphonist, 1968-70: deep, modal, spiritual jazz.
Beautifully boxed and presented.
Impressive compilation, from Dilla to Gary Wilson. Hats off.
Produced by Madlib, proper hip hop, with guests like Diamond D and Aesop Rock; and comes for a while with a bonus seven-inch.
