MED - Whut U In It Madvillain - Money Folder (Four Tet Remix)
I wish I had the server space/bandwidth to blather on about Madlib
. He's one of those musicmakers that's just shitting out great beats & records & side-projects & guest spots every darn day. The MED album is nearly all Madlib production except for one Just Blaze track that sticks out but not like a sore thumb, more like a more radio-friendly but still amazing head-nod thumb. The Madlib beats hooked me, induced multiple listens even though I'm not that interested in MED's rhymes. He kind of reminds me of Diverse
but with less interesting things to say.
The Madvillain track is kind of a fake-out because your regular Madlib beats have been replaced with Four Tet's
take on the keyboard & horns loop. Drum breakdowns replaced with freejass-out. The marriage of vocal & instrumental isn't as nice as it could be but I still love it to death. I wonder if anyone will want to listen to to the skronktronica record I'm going to make that only samples Ayler's ESP output & Filipino gamelan records. Probably not.
