Madlib’s Mind Fusion series has picked up where he left off years ago with Madlib Mind Fusion: African Earwax. The entire series is now streaming online.
Madlib’s five-volume mixtape series, Mind Fusion, was released 2004-2007. These CD releases bare no label or address, just the name “Madlib” designed like the Tamla Records logo. Each of these were made for various tours or informal events. Aside from a small repressing of Vols 1 & 2, none were repressed. None are commercially available.
Vol 1 and Vol 4 contain production from Madlib. Vol 2 is a jazz mix. Vol 3 and Vol 5 are mixes of records from around the world. Each mix has a minimal or incomplete track list and a descriptive subtitle.
