Editorial Reviews

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."

By Andre S. Grindle TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 3, 2014
Format: Audio CD
He's been called The Beat Conductor,The Loopdigga,Quasimoto,DJ Lord Such,his own name Otis Jackson Jr,Yesterday's New Quintet. But whatever name he chooses,Madlib is someone who crosses the barriers between two sources of musical information in my life: my friend Henrique and my father. It was my father who first started introducing me to Madlib when he shared a mutual interest with keyboardist/then local DJ Nigel Hall in his Shades of Blue and fascination with Mizell brothers period Donald Byrd. So each time a new Madlib CD came out,my father got it and we listened to it on the way home from the record store. Hearing all the layers of 70's and 80's soul/funk/jazz-funk samples in his music? Madlib really began to call to mind Henrique's discussions with me about hip-hop being an important archival music for the funk,jazz and soul music that moves both of us. When this album was originally released earlier this year featuring the rapping of Freddie Gibbs? I had a feeling an album like this would follow from Madlib himself. This was what I wanted to hear. And what a thrill it is too!

With "Scarface" as the orchestral opener the album goes into the slow crawling cinematic oriented soul break of "Deeper-after which comes the the call-and-response clavinet based melodic funk of "High"-featuring the lyric "I get high" which slows down to a crawl by songs end. "Harold",with its jazz guitar solo and "Bomb" with its symphonic electric pianos and keyboards are both deep,spare funk pieces. "S**tsville" and "Thuggin" are both beautifully dramatic pieces based on keyboard and guitar oriented orchestral soul-with the mildly classical twist a Stevie Wonder or David Sancious might add to the mix.

Pinata Beats - the instrumentals from Freddy Gibbs/Madlib collabo "Cocaine Pinata" - is a stand alone classic. Madlib showing no signs of losing his game comes up with his best production yet. Great late night sounds, choice samples and lazy beats combine for hypnotic effect. Slip it on and get lost in the sound paintings.

As always, Madlib manages to make the instrumentals from rap collaborations as interesting as the original product when viewed in the context of a soul or jazz mixtape.
