Hear 20 Minutes of Rare Madlib Productions on 'Beat Konducta in Lecce'
Today's a damn-good day to consider yourself a Madlib fan. On top of that surprisingly-proper Nas mash-up, a new (?) installment of the Stones Throw giant's Beat Konducta series has surfaced out of the blue, courtesy of the good folks at Rappamelo.
Beat Konducta in Lecce is a 20-minute discourse in the dustiest and most perfect loops from the globetrotting producer's presumed Italian excursions on the paths of rhythm. Unlike previous volumes in the series, there's no catalog number or track list to reference. But isn't that just impossibly Madlib?
Get your fix for the week with Beat Konducta in Lecce below and scroll on to peep his forthcoming tour dates. With a follow-up to his Freddie Gibbs collaboration already en route and a whole new studio at his disposal, the weeks and months ahead promise to be fruitful if not prolific. Stay tuned for his next transmission and join us in hoping this isn't the end of the unreleased batches. Maybe one of those nine stashed instrumental projects with Karriem Riggins will finally see the light of day.
Madlib Tour Dates:
Jul 07 @ Koko - London, United Kingdom
Jul 15 @ Union Park - Chicago, IL
Aug 15 @ Viva! Festival - Locorotondo, Italy
