Madlib, Mind Fusion — June 20, 2015 | Comments (16)

Madlib has a new mixtape called Mind Fusion: African Earwax. He made 30 copies of these on CD, each of which was being given an individual hand-drawn cover by Jason Jagel and sold at the Doomsday Show at Rappcats, June 20, 2015.

Here’s the mix in full. This is the first mix on Madlib’s Mixcloud page

Mind Fusion began as a five-volume mixtape series, released 2004-2007. These mixtape CD releases bare no label or address, just the name “Madlib” designed like the Tamla Records logo. Vol 1 and Vol 4 contain production from Madlib. Vol 2 is a jazz mix. Vol 3 and Volume 5 are mixes of records from around the world. Liner notes in each volume, from authors such as Thurston Moore, Vaclav Havel, LeRoi Jones, and Lungston Hughes, range from essays on jazz, a Los Angeles guides, poems, tips on making bombs at home.

  6. 30 copies only? C’mon! Typical case of taking too much advantage of the anticipation Madlib fans have for every release whether it’s a regular release or limited stuff like this. I really need this, but I probably wait until some nice lad/gal uploads his/her copy to da intrawebz, since you guys encourage this….

  13. I third the motion for posters of these album covers to be created. If we can’t have a hard copy of this album, at least give us that!
