For tonight's edition of "A Vinyl A Day", I bring you all a 12" deluxe four song version of one of the most revolutionary and creative acts found on vinyl throughout the early 2000s up to about 2011.
Tonight, I bring you a four song installment on 12" from Madlib's "Yesterday's New Quintet " collection.
This collection of music introduced to listeners by the genius of Madlib, completely altered the course of independent Hip Hop through his creative visions and collaborations that ensued as a result of such prolific production style and overall sound. Madlib became such a staple for over 10 years as his contribution to music not only spawned new creativity and influenced producers, emcees, singers, and DJs to take risks and create new lanes for themselves, but also through his ear for Jazz music and what this collection did for the genre as it revived so much of the influence it had on Hip Hop and reintruduced the "cool" and "swagger" of listening to Jazz without it having to necessarily be sampled.
Everything from this 12" cover art to the songs screams out "listen to me".
Light some incense or a candles, pour a few drinks, or roll something up, but whatever you... just listen.
