MED BLU MADLIB – Bad Neighbor

There’s little to say about a record with collaborators of the quality of MED, Blu, and Madlib. Nope, Madlib’s skills haven’t worn off. Yes, it’s great record. The incredible line-up includes guests such as MF Doom, Dâm-Funk, Frank Nitt, Oh No, Anderson Paak, Hodgy Beats… Why do I feel like trying to sell something that’s already sold?

Just go on, get your copy. Don’t let that fugly sleeve spoil the whole thing, just think about what Bo Diddley sang. You can buy this everywhere: Rappcats, iTunes, your favourite record store. Everywhere!

Lootpack – Loopdigga

Fifteen years after Lootpack’s classic Soundpieces album came out (not to mention The Lost Tapes), Stones Throw today announced the release of a new record by the trio consisting of Madlib, Wildchild and DJ Romes. But don’t get too enthusiastic now, as the Loopdigga EP merely collects some rare and out-of-print tracks from their back catalog (but why would you want to miss that?) The record is already available from the Stones Throw Store, where you can choose between vinyl and digital formats.

Ah, I’m always and forever in love with that Brian Benett sample!
