– Check out some of these dope projects by (or inspired by) DJ/Producer, Madlib, just as he launches a 7-city international tour.
Although Madlib and Freddie Gibbs have declared that their follow-up joint project has been completed, no official release date has been set. However, on Madlib’s end, we have a lot to hold us over as well as plenty to look forward to in the next few months.
This summer, Madlib will embark on his ‘Medicine Show’ Tour, which will take him into the fall season. The tour was launched at Distortion Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark this past weekend and will end at III Points Festival in Miami, Florida.
If you can’t make it to any of Madlib’s live shows, don’t fret. Thanks to Madlib himself and New Hampshire producer, D. Begun, 3 instrumental mixes and a 21-track album have been independently released within the past month.
Madlib is solely responsible for the three mixes, all ranging from 17-20 minutes long. The mixes all pay homage to some part of Italy and are named “Lost in Polignano a Mare”, “Beat Konducta in Lecce”, and “Beat Konducta in Alberobello”.
D. Begun, on the other hand, made a risky move by tampering with some classics. However, he was extremely successful in combining Madlib’s classic Quasimoto-released album, The Unseen, and assorted verses from Nas. He cleverly named the mashup project, Nasimoto
