Released: 2nd Nov 2018


following their exquisite treatment of j dilla earlier in 2018, the british jazz-hop band turn their attention to mf doom and madvillain’s two collaborative albums.

The band itself is based on the classic jazz big band instrumentation of saxes, trumpets and trombones and features the cream of the north of England's jazz scene. Sampling the likes of Sun Ra, Bill Evans, Freddie Hubbard, George Duke, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder gave ‘MADVILLAINY’ and ‘MADVILLAIN 2’ a jazz-oriented feel and ethos which in turn lend themselves perfectly to the deconstruction and re-imagining of Abstract Orchestra. Bandleader and arranger Rob Mitchell says of the record: "Arranging and scoring up MADVILLAIN Vol 1. Has allowed me to explore these sounds that I've always loved, yet keeping a strong hip-hop identity as the core of its sound."
