MF DOOM x Madlib: Speaking through music

MF DOOM recaps his experience with producer Madlib when they recorded the epic [easyazon_link identifier=”B0788FT3QV” locale=”US” tag=”wells01-20″]Madvillainy[/easyazon_link] album 14 years ago.

“We spoke through the music. He’ll (Madlib) hear the joint and that’s like my conversation with him. And I’d hear a beat, and that’s like what he was saying to me.”

There are so many gems on the [easyazon_link identifier=”B0788FT3QV” locale=”US” tag=”wells01-20″]Madvillainy[/easyazon_link] album but if I had to choose one (re: a few):

Music as telepathy. Beats as [easyazon_link identifier=”B0788FT3QV” locale=”US” tag=”wells01-20″]Madvillainy[/easyazon_link]

The Peter Franks Group – Leaving This Place pt1

The Peter Franks Group is an instrumental and jazz beat collective from Bournemouth, England. The fresh and crisp flute-driven track ‘Leaving This Place’ is one of the standout tracks off the band’s album Days Past. ‘Inner Most’ is also a moody gem.

“…A real timeless feel to this courtesy of the joint talents of Halsall, Urquhart, Mwamba, Crennell, Maffei and Manners – but the real magic is in the dreamy keyboard work of Peter Franks and his inventive production techniques.”
