Madlib Medicine Show No. 3: Beat Konducta in Africa will be released March 23 as the third installment of the producer’s one-release-a-month music series for 2010.
Beat Konducta in Africa is a 37-track instrumental hip-hop album produced & mixed with Madlib, featuring J. Rocc. This album bases itself on the obscure vinyl gems from the afro-beat, funk, psych-rock, garage-rock & soul movements of African countries as diverse as Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Botswana and Ivory Coast.
“Madlib’s Beat Konducta instrumental series – created from Madlib’s raw beat tapes – began in 2006 with Movie Scenes, an imaginary movie & TV soundtrack with the feel of Blaxpoitation soul, afro-psychedelia and moody progressive rock. Beat Konducta in India(Vol. 3-4) and A Tribute to J Dilla (Vol. 5-6) followed in 2007 and 2009. Pieces of these albums have been reworked by artists such as Talib Kweli and Mos Def, who used Beat”
