the instrumentals from 'pinata' are a genius blend of arcane film snippets, dusted funk & soul, & psych / prog rock musical diversions.

Madlib proves to live up to what Freddie Gibbs once said of him: “Madlib quite simply, is music”. There are few musicians – let alone beat–makers - in the world whose output in its raw form provides his listener with a full on musical experience before anything is added. Madlib is such a talent. Hip hop is his canvas, but he creates the most wondrous things with it. Before a microphone is switched on, before a rhyme even uttered, a Madlib beat stands alone as a complete thing, much like J Dilla's acclaimed output. Piñata put rapper Gibbs in the spotlight, one that a growing audience is finally acknowledging that he deserves. On Piñata Beats, though, it’s Madlib, quietly spinning on the center stage.
