From machine to listeners

Madlib : Face the Sun (Africa), Eternal Broadcaster (Authentic) and Stax (Strings)
The Beat Konducta: Vol. 1-2 (Stones Throw, 2006)

Yes we've already passed the mid-years and soon coming some new musical events. I hope you had a good holiday too. But I just had to trust you something, where I live the month of August was under the rain. Yet not terrible.

At the moment, since last week, I was searching which new release album blew my mind since the beginning of the year. Choice wasn't easy, as a matter of fact in 2006 we had a lot of great reedition from Chess to Fania and some discovery from the Afro-Punk scene like Gnarls Barkley. Among several of them I finally choose the original Madlib's experiments. For me with The Beat Konducta Madlib (aka Quasimoto), a talentuous musician, open something new ... difficult to pass through.

From the unlikely beach town of Oxnard, 40 miles from north of Los Angeles, the multi-dimensional Madlib quickly rose to prominence as one of the most interesting figures in late-90's hip-hop. With his childhood buddies in the Lootpack, Madlib quickly made a name for himself as a rapper, producer, and DJ. In particular, his expansive style and deft touch for composition made him one of hip-hop's most sought-after producers. An enthusiastic crate digger, with a deep reverence for jazz and soul, Madlib branched out into a number of ambitious, engaging solo projects. (from Stones Throw)
