Product Description

Product Description

The Complete Rock Konducta Experience, Presented Here As A Double-Cd Issue, Featuring 48 Untitled Tracks Across 2 CDs. Madlib’s Rock Konducta – the blatantly titled, rock-inspired entry in the producer’s long-running Beat Konducta instrumental series. Madlib announced his Rock Konducta album with a limited edition 45 made specifically for sale at the Zamrock Live! Madlib Medicine Show in San Francisco in early 2013. It was a fitting place to make the debut, as his previous Beat Konducta in Africa album was heavily inspired by Africa’s vibrant 70s rock scene, with a specific focus on Zambia’s Zamrock. Rock Konducta is the fifth installment in Madlib’s Beat Konducta series. Previous entries include: Beat Konducta : Movie Scenes, Beat Konducta: in India, Beat Konducta: Dil Cosby and Dil Withers Suites and Beat Konducta in Africa. Rock Konducta grabs its source material from various worldwide rock scenes from the 60s through the 80s, from American psychedelia to Germany’s krautrock to acid-soaked Spanish prog to synthy, early-80s oddities. Tied together by Madlib’s unique sensibility, these scenes coalesce into a new whole. Who knew that rock music sounded like this? Well, there’s one obvious answer to that question.

Aside from the fact that Madlib lives on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean from me, comes from an entirely different cultural and ethnic background, is infinitely more technologically skilled and has a better record collection than me (excluding, presumably, various Quasimoto and Beat Konducta volumes - I presume he doesn't have these on his shelf, in much the same way that characters in EastEnders or Corrie don't watch soap operas) I feel we're on the same wavelength when it comes to these mix compilations.

I believe Rock Konducta is up there with Medicine Show Vol 5 as the high water mark of inventiveness, humour, samples and sounds. It's all subjective of course and the great thing about Madlib is that if this album isn't to your tastes, there will, I'm ever hopeful, be another along soon.

If you're a fan of 70s psych-rock; Can, Harmonia, Neu et al and the whole Vanishing Point aesthetic of early 70s b-movies, you'll find a lot to wallow in and enjoy over these 2 discs. Sadly, there are no liner notes (though the artwork will appeal to fans of Al Jaffee and Robert Crumb) and, like hair, this will surely grow on you...
