Pre-Order Madlib’s Rock Konducta Pt. 2

Rock Konducta is the latest in Madlib’s instrumental “Beat Konducta” series, the producer’s raw hip-hop beat tapes brought to life. Previous titles include Movie Scenes and Beat Konducta in India, imaginary film soundtracks; the self-descriptive A Tribute to J Dilla; and Beat Konducta in Africa inspired by the Zambian “Zamrock” music scene of the ’70s.

The latest album finds its inspiration in various worldwide underground rock scenes from the 1960s through the 80s: American psychedelia, Germany’s Krautrock, acid-soaked Spanish prog-rock and synthy, early-80s oddities.

Really Radio Party

It’s an honour to be invited to spin at the Really Radio Party in London this Sunday evening, in association with Really Radio and Field View Festival. Not only is the party a celebration of the second season of Really Radio, it’s also the first time I’m going to see Stony Browder Jr. live.

Lorne Ashley, Dario Darnell and Aaron Edwards Mavinga have been an ongoing source of inspiration to me in the years we’ve known each other, both with the diversity of their output and the scope they’ve brought to my own projects. Bursting with talent but also with a discipline, freshness and DIY ethos in approach that could be an energetic blueprint for all creative endeavours.

With respect and admiration, this is going to be a terrific party – would love to see my London family in attendance!
