Madlib just announced a new installment of his much nutted-over “Beat Konducta” series (remember Beat Konducta in Afrika?). The newest edition is called Rock Konducta and at an upcoming show in San Francisco, Madlib will apparently be releasing a limited edition 45 with two tracks from the project. That’s ‘upcoming’ as in June 7th, 2013; ‘SF’ as in 1015 Fulsom Street and ‘limited edition’ as in 300 white label copies, available only at the show. Speculation is that this will be a (duh) more rock-oriented take on the concept, though Afrika may still be in the mix as well. The SF show will be dedicated to Zambian rock–Zamrock if you’re nasty–and features a performance from Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda, who is billed as “the last surviving member of cult Zambian rock act WITCH.” Stream below “Mad March (Skipping Drunk),” one of the Rock Konducta tracks which will be on the ultra-limited 45, scroll down for show info, tickets and back cover art–and the first digger who can identify the Zamrock source material gets a frosty Mosi Lager on me. Holler.
