Möt Madlib i RBMA-lecture från New York – om Prince, Quasimoto och Kanye West


 

 

En av hiphopvärldens mest respekterade producent-doldisar under 2000-talet är utan tvekan Oxnard-sonen Madlib, med bakgrund i gruppen Lootpack och beatsnickrande via skivbolaget Stones Throw Records. Lägg till detta samarbeten med J Dilla, DOOM och många andra artister genom årens lopp. Senast i vintras fick han stor uppmärksamhet efter att Kanye West gick in över hans instrumental-beat på “No More Cocaine Parties in LA”.

I samband med Red Bull Music Academy i New York som pågått under maj månad, hölls en så kallad “lecture” med Madlib under ledning av Chairman Mao.

 

“Since the early ‘90s, the reclusive Madlib has been producing music at a relentless pace. Whether he’s working with artists like Freddie Gibbs, MF Doom or Erykah Badu, collaborating with the late J Dilla, or working under one of his own aliases, like the drugged out party creature Quasimoto, Madlib has carved out his own idiosyncratic corner in the massive hip-hop universe.

Luckily, we were able to coax him out of his studio for a rare discussion at the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2016 about Prince, the importance of doing taxes, the death of his Quasimoto alter-ego, collaborating with Kanye West and his love of industrial music.”
