Superb soul album, with a fresh, direct musicality down to Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman from Truth And Soul, and unafraid of politics. The triple LP has an extra couple of sides of instrumentals.
Raw drums, breaks and beats from Dan Bitney, John Herndon and John McEntire from Tortoise.
A retrospective, starting with his conceptual electronic psych-rock masterpiece The Electric Lucifer. Moogs, vocoders and homemades (like his mate Raymond Scott), drones and effects, grooves and abstractions.
Instrumental hip-hop and the rest from the Dilla and Madlib deejay.
With a mystery disc of untitled tracks.
‘Music for ‘different’ commercials… all beats and little melodies… one of the selling points of the record is that it helps plants enter photosynthesis on command.’
Entertaining, personable and free-flowing — post-punk-meets-old-school.
35 hip hop instrumentals from the master, Madlib.
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.
An hour-long hip-hop mixtape, with numerous MCs. Bafflingly unpleasant artwork inside.
