jason recommends : "the beat konducta returns and turns it up to eleven.

trawling his ridiculously large record collection, madlib selects gems from the zamrock scene and rock oddities from around the globe & chops, loops and flips them to create one of the most essential beat tapes of recent times".

a set of awesome, heavy instrumental hip-hop, crafted with madlib's inimitable finesse & ear for massive hooks, heavily inspired by Africa’s vibrant '70s rock scene, with a specific focus on Zambia’s Zamrock. the first of two rock-inspired entries in the producer’s long-running 'Beat Konducta' instrumental series, 'Rock Konducta' grabs its source material from various worldwide rock scenes from the '60s through to the '80s, from American psychedelia to German krautrock to acid-soaked Spanish prog to synthy, early-'80s oddities. Tied together by Madlib’s unique sensibility, these scenes coalesce into a new whole, & open the forum for the question: if these 26 tracks are his introduction, where will he lead with Vol. 2?
