Editorial Reviews

Following up his successful Beat Konducta vinyl-only releases, Madlib rounds out his first CD collection of hip hop instrumentals with Beat Konducta Vol 1-2: Movie Scenes. These new, original tracks have been culled from the now-legendary beat CDs which provided the basis for Madlib's 2004-2005 productions from Madvillain, Quasimoto and Jaylib. Movie Scenes presents a vivid hip hop soundtrack for each mood in the model of vintage "library records" made for tv and film background music in the funky 1960s & 70s. Each of the 40 tracks has a title as well as a parenthetical mood or theme to correspond with what's unfolding on the screen. The film is for you to imagine, the score courtesy of Madlib the Beat Konducta. Stones. 2006.

Madlib is at it again, and finally drops a truly amazing double album of his tripped out beats. The smoke is in the air, the samples are wild, and the bass is bumpin. Sure we love to hear rhyming over his beats whether it be Doom, MED, Wildchild, Declaime, or Lord Quas. But this right here is what the true Madlib fans, the "beat connosieurs," wanna hear over and over again. I first came across this project when the first half, Vol 1., was available only on vinyl. As soon as I laid that record on my turntables I was blown away, his evolution of beatmaking is unprecedented. Just when you thought you heard it all, he comes back and knocks you on your SP/MPC ass. He opens the album with a short message from Busta Rhymes quickly followed by a mesmerizing cut-up sample by, now correct me if I'm wrong, the legendary Freda Payne? I would absolutely love to see Stones Throw put out an interpretive film version of this album. Not to mention the fact that it is the perfect companion album to J Dilla's Donuts, those two were definitely cut from the same cloth. And just like Dilla's Donuts, it is guaranteed to be in my CD player for a long, long time. We gotta keep sampling freedom alive, so that true artists like Madlib can use the tools of old to paint masterpieces like this one.

And finding stories of stacks of old vinyls, dripping Yesterday and glowing Always. Cali's finest, Madlib, is definitely one of the heirs of DJ Premiere, Pete Rock, DJ Quik and other previous beat konductas that helped established the sound of true hip-hop as a platform where old school soul and new school technique are amalgamated. The latest Madlib Invasion is not for everybody; those of us who's butts were undeniably moved by Tribe's "Low End Theory" will definitely appreciate this endeavor. Those of you who are tired of what MTV and other corporate entities and pass off as hip hop, clean out your crazy Uncle Otis's attic check out the Beat Konducta. Then walk down the street to Mr. Yancey's house, go into his basement and check out J Dilla's "Donuts."

Finally after reading reviews and listening to snippetts, I broke down and bought. The tracks aren't that long but they deliver. Can't belive i slept on this as long as i did. Better late than never, right! If you like tight beats without all the garbage lyrics of most of today's hiphop, then this cd is a must have.

When it comes to producing tracks, Madlib is definitely known for having his own style and signature and Movie Scenes serves as a great roadmap for those of us who love him for this. The album took a couple of listens to grow on me, but when it did it was explosive. Throughout the course of over 30 relatively brief, mostly-instrumental tracks, Madlib lays down beat after beat and sample after sample of his dusty, heavily r&b and soul influenced songs. Old school fans of soul music will appreciate some of the samples used as well as wonder what the source material of the numerous others is. The tracks are the perfect length and are varied, yet cohesive enough to easily listen to in one sitting. Despite not being humorous in nature, the beats on here are definitely more reminiscent of his tracks under his Quasimoto monicker (source material-wise) moreso than under his co-produced Jaylib or Madvillain titles and, to a lesser extent, even his Yesterday's New Quintet alias. If you like a few of the songs on here, you'll definitely like it all.

I WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN BY SAYING AFTER READING A LOT OF REVIEWS ON AMAZON.COM I GLAD TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE STILL PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT KNOW WHAT REAL HIP HOP IS. NOT THAT GIMMICKY GARBAGE THEY PLAY ON RADIO NOWADAYZ. NUFF WIT THAT LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING I AM A 34 YR OLD HIP HOP JUNKIE AND I REMEMBER WHEN U COULD GO OUT AND THEY WOULD BE SO MANY DOPE AZZ ALBUMS OUT THAT U COULDNT BUYEM ALL AT 1 TIME. THEM DAYZ ARE OVER WIT. BUT CATS LIKE MADLIB, JDILLA, AND A HOST OF OTHER CATZ STILL KNOW HOW TO PUT OUT GOOD ALBUMS AND WHEN U BUYEM U DONT FEEL LIKE U JUST GOT ROBBED FOR YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. BEAT CONDUCTA VOL 1-2 IS A END TO END BURNER. THA PRODUCTION ON THIS ALBUM IS TOP NOTCH AND NO DOUBT TOP SHELF MATERIAL.

I still haven't listened to Dilla Donuts yet, so I'm not sure how it compares to that album, but after listening to this CD for a few days I can definitley say this is a very dope instrumental album. These are some pretty straight forward beats, tight drum loops with memorable samples that flow together seamlessly. The last madlib album I bought was The Further Adventures of Lord Quas, and I was dissapointed with that CD, this one on the other hand exeeded my expectations. Perfect album to listen to during a smoke session.

Its funky slow hiphop soul at its best- well-produced without silly overindulgences- much better than many of the instrumental hiphop albums ala shadow. In fact i think this ranks right up there with endtroducing.
This is great for kicking back and headnodding- many classic soul samples some old school hiphop and a little funk- Great cd- has a lofi vibe thats perfect for the style- Madlib is certainly one of the best and stacked with old lps as is evidenced in the sound.
