February markes the month when Madlib, the Californian beatmaker extraordinaire with a productivity second to none, will release the second instalment of his Medicine Show series of albums and mixes. Medicine Show No. 2 has the producer dive deep into Brazil and its musical heritage, exploring decades worth of “Brazilian funk, psychedelic, prog-rock and jazz.”
So, after drawing inspiration from India (among other places) for his Beat Konducta series, Madlib will now be taking us further south. For Madlib’s fellow collectors, the CD will be released with liner notes about as hazy as the producer’s hotel rooms on tour are rumoured to be. February 23rd is the date, so stay on your toes!
