New Madlib coming this Friday/Saturday. We hinted a while ago at a new Madlib production with a yet-unnamed MC. We’re dropping a track later this week in the Rappcats newsletter and presenting the limited 12-inch EP in Chicago and Los Angeles.
Where: Chicago. Friday, July 17. Madlib performs at The Mid, where he will be joined onstage by the MC (and it’s not you who think it is.) Records will be for sale in the venue, where Hit & Run will be live-printing the sleeves. TICKETS. Note: This show will be followed by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago on July 19.
Where: Los Angeles. Saturday, July 18. Rappcats, 5636 York Blvd, 12PM-4PM. We’ll have these records along with everything else on the Madlib Invazion catalog in a one-day record store pop-up.
The record is 3 vocal tracks plus bonus beats and instrumentals – 9 tracks in all. Sleeves are hand-printed by Hit & Run with artwork by Gustavo Eandi and Jeff Jank – about 10 variations of each sleeve. These will be numbered, with 150 in Chicago and 150 in L.A. Another few hundred are currently being printed and will be available on Rappcats website later this summer.
