Brand new interview with Madlib during a Medicine Show stop in London. Interviews with Madlib are quite rare so it’s always interesting to read or listen to them as they come about every so often. A lot of the things he’s talking about during the interview is pretty common knowledge, but there are some new things discussed as well.
He talks about a few new projects which include some early Kraftwerk inspired tunes, new stuff with Mos Def, and some more jazz and hip hop records on the way. He mentions holding on to records lately rather than releasing them right away which is disappointing to hear as a fan but also makes sense to ensure he’s happy with what’s being put out. It also sounds like the delay of the new Madvillain album is coming from DOOM’s side, hopefully he’ll be getting to it here soon as everyone is ready for the long awaited return of that project. Near the end of the interview he even talks about J Dilla’s jazz album which has never been released and may never get one due to all of the politics and red tape surrounding the release of his music since his death. Hopefully someday we’ll be able to hear it.
If you’re a fan of Madlib and crew it is definitely an interview you don’t want to miss. Check it out above!
