    Pinata Beats

    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. Since the issue of the collaborative album with rapper Freddie Gibbs - Piñata, already being hailed as contender for rap album of the year - we've been asked countless times to issue the beats Madlib created for the project as instrumentals. And we've conceded. Piñata put 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. Through seventeen cuts of arcane film snippets, dusted funk and soul, psych and prog rock musical diversions, Madlib proves to live up to what Gibbs once said of him: "Madlib quite simply, is music."

    DJ Koze - DJ-Kicks

    DJ Koze - with his friendly and sometimes slightly melancholic take on the world - is one of the greatest auteurs of club music today, and one of the few internationally active DJs who dares to make music that has relevance beyond the dance floor. During the 70-minute journey on his DJ Kicks - the 50th edition - Kosi Kos manages to establish a uniform color even though genres alternate in a way that is rarely heard on a mix CD: the stripped down hip hop of Madlib, brutalist Berghain techno, timeless songwriting, floating indie-pop and outlier numbers that oscillate between absurdity and melancholy. Koze's disregard for the stylistic yoke presents him with an immense challenge. Hence, almost all the tracks are more or less edited, and one is fully rhymed (Session Victim: Hyuwee).Koze rambles on here himself: I didn't want to kick around sophisticated knowledge, but rather try and weave together some good gems that would make sense to anyone, even people who aren't necessarily music nerds. But this is blabbing that you can count on, also because he approaches the term mix from a different angle and doesn't even try to make something fit that doesn't fit: During the day, I don't need to hear anything that's mixed on the beat. I put the focus on making sure that it works harmoniously - the idea is more to create the impression of a radio show, like people such as John Peel did so uniquely. There is a giant cosmos of music and it runs through my filter.

    Shades Of Blue

    First Pressing Of 1,000 Numbered Copies On Blue And White Mixed Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter

    Interpretations And Remixes Of Blue Note Classics The Look Of Slim, Distant Land, Stormy, Live Performance Of Peace/dolphin Dance And Many More Tracks

    Shades Of Blue is a unique project that turns over the legacy of the esteemed Blue Note jazz label to one of hip-hop's most unique artists, Madlib. He is considered to be one of hip-hop's most inventive visionaries and connects it's productions through smart lyrics and poetics.

    The album opens with the declaration that We are now having a little cooking session for Blue Note right here on the scene... Madlib was afforded the opportunity to mine the crates of Blue Note. On Shades of Blue, he delivers remixes and brand spanking new interpretations of Blue Note classics.

    Whether funking out Ronnie Foster's original Mystic Brew and transforming it into the Mystic Bounce, or giving Wayne Shorter's Footprints a go with Yesterday's New Quintet, rest assured that Madlib's innovative sonic vocabulary will fill the ears.

    Other artists receiving a Madlib reimagination include Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, Bobby Hutcherson, Horace Silver, The Three Sounds and many more.

    Pitchfork album reviewer Scott Hreha rates the album 8.6 Listening to Madlib's music, I'm reminded of the Black radical maestros responsible for some of the outermost-limits music-making of the past half-century: Sun Ra, George Clinton, Lee 'Scratch' Perry.

    In 2014, it ranked at number 11 on Paste's 12 Classic Hip-Hop Albums That Deserve More Attention list.

    New Amerykah Part 1 (4th World War)

    Universal Motowns multi-platinum-selling, Grammy award winning singer/songwriter/actress Erykah Badu returns to the music scene with her new album New Amerykah featuring the debut single Honey. Laced with Erykahs bluesy grit and MC style vocals, the song is bolstered by producers 9th Wonders razor sharp hip hop beats. Badu describes the song as an old school track with some funk on it. Badu has enlisted some of the most talented, groundbreaking underground producers and engineers in the hip-hop game to support her breakthrough return, including Grammy Award winning producer 9th Wonder (Jay-Z, Nas, Mary J. Blige), Madlib, Mike Chav Chavarria and R&B singer Bilal. The music is the star, says Erykah, I just laid down my vocals and let the music breathe while the melodies tell the stories. The album is part one of the series New Amerykah Part 1 & 2.

    Badu, a Dallas native, emerged in 1997 with her masterpiece debut album Baduizm as a primal force of nature connecting old school soul with contemporary R&B. The album garnered her numerous award nominations, pulling 2 coveted Grammys (Best Female R&B Vocal, Best R&B Album) and multiple Top spots on critics Best-Of-The-Year Lists. In 2000 she followed up with the critically acclaimed platinum selling album, Mamas Gun. In 2003 the EP World Wide Underground was awarded Gold certification.

    While You Were Sleeping (On Sale)

    JosÉ James has announced a his new album, While You Were Sleeping, his fifth studio album and his second album for Blue Note Records. While You Were Sleeping is the follow-up to his widely acclaimed R&B and jazz steeped No Beginning No End, and signals a new creative direction for the versatile singer-songwriter. The album was recorded in Brooklyn, NY, and was produced by JosÉ and Brian Bender.


    That creative shift is heard in the rock edge of tracks like "EveryLittleThing" and "Anywhere U Go" and is evidenced in a change in JosÉ's band which adds guitarist Brad Allen Williams to the stellar line-up of keyboardist Kris Bowers, bassist Solomon Dorsey and drummer Richard Spaven. The influence of Jimi Hendrix can be heard throughout the album as much as R&B forefathers like Al Green. Special guests on While You Were Sleeping include vocalist Becca Stevens who duets with James on her song "Dragon," as well as trumpeter Takuya Kuroda who is featured on the cover of Green's classic "Simply Beautiful" that closes the album.


    This album is a synthesis of everything I love about music," says JosÉ, "from contemporary artists like Frank Ocean, James Blake, and Junip to groundbreaking artists I grew up with like Nirvana, Radiohead, and Madlib. It's also a love letter to many late nights spent in East London clubs like Plastic People and Cargo, watching new movements unfold in electronic music. I want people to feel the joy of discovery that I experience night after night onstage, reaching for something new.


    NPR Music raved about No Beginning No End, proclaiming "James makes utterly contemporary music," adding that he "skirts categories with ease, fitting in with current R&B innovators like Frank Ocean or Miguel, yet maintaining a strong awareness of a lineage that stretches from Ray Charles to Marvin Gaye to Lou Rawls to Maxwell."


    Pitchfork noted that "While he's always been one to try stuff out - he successfully collaborated with Flying Lotus on Blackmagic - on No Beginning No End he finds a way to make an eclectic approach feel unified and whole. With previous releases, he's earned his heroic acclaim in the tough, tried-and-trusted lanes of contemporary jazz. With No Beginning No End, he's built his own road out."

    Pinata

    Freddie Gibbs is the product of violent, drug-laden streets but unlike most rappers with similar resumes, he brings the block to the booth
    without inhibition or an exaggerated rap persona. Piñata, a 17 track collaboration with producer Madlib, is the best distillation yet of his
    transparent approach to making music, combining an at times stark honesty with electrifying talent as a lyricist and performer.


    Piñata is "a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax," says Gibbs, who came up on the streets of Gary, Indiana, the disregarded city previously
    best known for producing Michael Jackson. Here he is joined by Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, Raekwon, Scarface, Domo Genesis, Ab-Soul
    and a host of others in setting his soliloquies of the streets alongside film snippets and dusted funk, soul and prog musical tapestries. While
    this is the latest in a series of single-artist collaborations for Madlib, after Jaylib (J Dilla), Madvillainy (MF Doom) and the street-centric
    O.J. Simpson with Detroit's Guilty Simpson, the pairing is unique as it is the first time for Gibbs working with just one producer.


    On Piñata, where Gibbs can shift from textbook lessons in robbing and drugging on trackslike "Scarface" and "Knicks," to perhaps the
    album's most personal song, "Broken," a collaboration with Scarface, who, along with Tupac, DMX and 50 Cent, make up the rapper's own
    Mount Rushmore of MCs ("You're getting a hurricane of all those motherfuckers hitting you at once when you listen to Freddie Gibbs," he
    says). "Deeper," a Gibbs favorite and the third single from the album after "Thuggin'" (2012) and "Shame," (2013) is an ode to hip-hop in
    the mold of Common's "I Used to Love H.E.R."; "High," featuring Danny Brown, is self-explanatory and just what you would expect from
    Gibbs, Madlib and one of Detroit's finest; while on "Real," Gibbs addresses an old score just as Michael Corleone settled all family business
    on baptism day.


    As a producer, Madlib, quite simply, is music, and ten years into his career-a time when other artists become comfortable-Gibbs remains
    restless, focused, with an eye on the competition and their position relative to his ascent. This is because mentally, he's still on the corner
    hustling, which would be the downfall of the average rapper. With Piñata, Gibbs confirms that he is anything but average.

    First Press Of This 12 Features Clear Vinyl Atop An Original Jeff Jank Sleeve With Art By Mason London And Placed In A Thick, Fold-over Plastic Sleeve. (Subsequent Runs Will Not Have The Clear Vinyl Or The Fold-over Plastic Sleeve)


    PayJay Productions, Inc. was the company James Dewitt J Dilla Yancey founded in 2001 to house his production company and his publishing company. But it was also a symbolic move: PayJay was a sign that the maverick producer then known as Jay Dee would see his individual goals in music industry realized, and he would get paid in the process.


    The Estate of James Yancey has revived PayJay as a functioning imprint, and is announcing its release of J Dilla's long lost vocal album, The Diary. The Estate of James Yancey is administered by attorney Alex Borden and overseen by the Probate Court of the State of California on behalf of Yancey's four heirs - his mother, Maureen Madukes Yancey, his brother John Illa J Yancey and his two daughters, Ja'Mya Yancey and Ty-monae Whitlow.


    Anthem and Trucks were two of the songs J Dilla recorded in late 2001 and early 2002 as he put the finishing touches on what was supposed to be an album featuring his raps over production by the likes of Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, House Shoes, Karriem Riggins and others. These two tracks, however, were produced by Dilla himself.


    These tracks come straight from multi-track masters found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla's passing in 2006. These songs have been mixed by engineer Dave Cooley, who worked extensively with Dilla during his years in Los Angeles. Using Dilla's original demo mixes as his guide, Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla's vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos present.


    Rounding out this 12 is Dilla's original mix of Trucks discovered as a two-track demo mix. We've included this mix as it features an alternate version of Dilla's vocals and a third verse not found on Dilla's final sessions for this song.

    One A.M.

    Diverse is a rapper you think you've heard before--not because this Chicago MC sounds similar to others, but because his presence is so powerful it seems impossible that this is only his first album. Intelligent without being arrogant, conscious without being corny, Diverse also boasts two of the greatest assets any MC could ask for: an authoritative baritone and a confident flow. These help him keep up with some of the more seasoned rappers who appear on the album, including Vast Aire (formerly of Cannibal Ox), Lyrics Born, and Jean Grae. Complementing Diverse's superior lyricism is top-notch production courtesy of a holy trinity of underground favorites: Prefuse 73, Madlib, and RJD2. They push the album from raucously energetic to sinisterly moody to laid-back cool. ... Diverse's debut accomplishes an unlikely feat in these days of overblown hype and rampaging ego: he leaves you wanting more. --Oliver Wang

    Knicks Remix

    Following the launch of what most critics (Billboard, Pitchfork, NPR amongst
    them) are calling one of the best rap records (if not one of the best records) of
    the year, producer Madlib and rapper Freddie Gibbs reunite for a final EP -
    Knicks Remix.


    This EP contains exclusive tracks not available on the pair's Piñata album.
    "Knicks," in remixed form, now features a new verse by Gibbs alongside Action
    Bronson, Joey Bada$$ and Ransom. The B-side, "Home," features BJ The
    Chicago Kid - the velvet voiced vocalist from the duo's earlier "Shame" - and
    Madlib's two-part soul-flip carries Gibb's narrative about a traveling man's
    disregard for his woman at home. Both sides are completed by previously
    unheard Madlib instrumentals.

    The Grind Date (Awaiting Repress)


    10th Anniversay Reissue Of The Grind Date


    2 LP Colored Vinyl (One LP Orange / Other LP Is Blue)


    De La Soul were interrupted just before they could deliver the third volume in their AOI series -- projected to be a DJ album -- to Tommy Boy. (The label
    perhaps bailed out from a 15-year relationship precisely because the group was going to release such a commercially bankrupt title, one that was planned
    instead to appear on an independent label run by Maseo.) De La Soul quickly realized they couldn't go ahead with the plan after signing their AOI label to
    Sanctuary, so they wrote a new record, The Grind Date. Although it may see them settling into a holding pattern, at least the pattern of 2001's AOI: Bionix
    is one that any hip-hop fan won't mind hearing repeated. Better yet, it boasts productions from an excellent cast of figures -- partner in crime Supa Dave
    West, author of the best tracks on their AOI series, J-Dilla, who's stretching out his patented (read: overdone) sound to embrace classic hip-hop, an only
    slightly commercialized Madlib, and young phenom 9th Wonder. Madlib gets what must be the first lead single of his career, a bright, antimaterialist tale
    called Shopping Bags (She Got From You) that thumps like a club tune, but lurches as only the Beat Conductor could do it. Verbal Clap finds J-Dilla
    allowing some grit into his productions, and Supa Dave only continues floating the most fluidly catchy productions of any rap producer in action.
    Meanwhile, De La Soul voices Posdnuos and Dave balance their time breezing easy on bumping message tracks with a few old-school shots that show
    them a bit defensive about the passing of time. (Check out Come On Down, a Madlib-produced shot with Flava Flav, or Days of Our Lives featuring
    Common.) Without a concept to tout, The Grind Date doesn't gel like AOI: Bionix, but it does show De La Soul keeping everything together more than 15
    years after their debut. After all, you certainly wouldn't see MF Doom guesting on a Tone-Loc record. - Review By John Bush

    There's something about Cole Williams's voice that conjures pictures in the mind.
    Not only through the intense and compelling vocals of his recordings, either.
    There's a catch to it, a rugged rasp weathered beyond his years, that shows that his
    singing style - rich in the cadences of funk, blues and soul. Spend any time with
    them, and it's abundantly clear that Cole - or if you prefer, The Child Of Lov - is a
    true modern soul man.


    This much we know: Cole has lived in London, Paris and Amsterdam where he's
    currently based. He has, for various reasons, spent a good deal of time alone with
    music. His first inspirations were his mother's Stevie Wonder albums. By the age
    of 13 he was listening to hip hop and neo-soul, and began to try and make his own
    beats on his computer, and initially to rap. At 14, he began to teach himself guitar
    and piano, and became obsessed with the off-kilter hip hop beats of J Dilla and
    especially Madlib, the master of the thickly-layered psychedelic groove. Inspired
    by the combination of unorthodox musicality with hip hop attitude, as he picked
    out his own melodies and slowly developed his instrumental skills; it all came
    together.


    So here we are: from those years' worth of self-disciplined musical study and
    practice recordings, then a period of adjusting to their exposure to the world, have
    come the tracks that became The Child Of Lov album. They're layered with all
    the intensity and dedication that Cole has put into his listening and learning, and
    with his passion for the influences. Check out "Give Me" - the peculiar stutter of
    his abstract hip hop heroes Madlib and Dilla is there, but so is his first inspiration
    Stevie Wonder as well as brilliantly discordant hints of Prince and even Tom Waits
    in full junkyard prophet mode. Listen to the powerfully defiant "Fly" and wonder
    that the powerful, gospel-infused voice is that of a young man, and not a soul
    veteran beaten but unbowed by life's tribulations and soak up the mournful opener
    "Call Me Up" - the sort of track you'd always hoped Sly Stone might pull himself
    together and make one day

    New Magic (Blue Vinyl) (Pre-Order)

    Pressed On Blue Vinyl

    Son Little, the singer and songwriter born Aaron Livingston, is the easygoing musical alchemist of our time. He is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R&B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound-blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll-through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.

    The song that serves as the album's true centerpiece is Blue Magic, a Philly Soul inspired number deconstructed almost like a rap song or the best of production savants like J Dilla or Madlib, complete with chiming glockenspiel bells and old school female backing vocals. The song has the appeal of an instant classic. On the heels of his 2015 self-titled debut and the 5-song EP, Songs I Forgot, that came before it, Son Little found his reach steadily growing. His song Lay Down had been streamed over seven million times, he had toured the world with artists as diverse as Leon Bridges, Kelis, Mumford & Sons, Portual. The Man and Shakey Graves in addition to his own headlining runs, and also became a Grammy Award winning producer, earning a 2016 Best Roots Performance award for his work on Mavis Staples.

    The Ecstatic (Pre-Order)

    The Ecstatic is the 2009 fourth studio album by American rapper Mos Def. After venturing further away from hip hop with an acting career and two poorly received albums, Mos Def signed with Downtown Records and recorded The Ecstatic primarily at the Record Plant in Los Angeles. He worked with producers such as Preservation, Mr. Flash, Oh No, and Madlib, the latter two of whom reused instrumentals they had produced on Stones Throw Records. Singer Georgia Anne Muldrow, formerly of the record label, was one of the album's few guest vocalists, along with rappers Slick Rick and Talib Kweli. The front cover features a still from Charles Burnett's 1978 film Killer of Sheep.


    The Ecstatic was described by music journalists as a conscious and alternative hip hop record with an eccentric, internationalist quality. Mos Def's raps about global politics, love, spirituality, and social conditions were informed by the zeitgeist of the late 2000s, Black internationalism, and Pan-Islamic ideas, as he incorporated a number of Islamic references throughout the album. Its loosely structured, lightly reverbed songs used unconventional time signatures and samples taken from a variety of international musical styles, including Afrobeat, soul, Eurodance, jazz, reggae, Latin, and Middle Eastern music. Mos Def titled The Ecstatic after one of his favorite novels-the 2002 Victor LaValle book of the same name-believing its titular phrase evoked his singular creative vision for the album.
