Madlib Medicine Show #6:The Brain Wreck Show RELEASED 22nd JUNE

Global psychedelia, Asian funk, Prog. Rock, conspiracy theories, paranoia, and rabbits who fuck in the forest - all in one Madlib mixtape.

Madlib follows History of the Loop Digga: 1990-2000 with the sixth installment in his Madlib Medicine Show, his psych-prog-avante-freak-out-funk rock mix Brain Wreck Show. Madlib s been pegged as a jazz guy as far back as 2000, when he as his alter ego Quasimoto released the song "Jazz Cats." His releases with the fictional "jazz group" Yesterdays New Quintet didn't help matters. But, no matter how many jazz records are thrust at him by money-hungry record dealers, he most often at least lately gravitates to the rock side of the spectrum. That's late 60s to late 70s psych-prog-avante-freak-out-funk rock mind you; from the Tropicalia of Brasil to the Krautrock of Germany to the fuzzy sonds of mid 70s Nigeria, the Beat Konducta's rock tastes know no cultural bounds. Actually, we're not sure if they know any bounds. This an introductory mix entitled the Brain Wreck Show (admission, he wrote on the CD master, "One Brainticket" an homage to one of his favorite Krautrock bands) should serve to give its listeners a delightfully freaky funked up experience into the rock side of Madlib's collecting conscious. We're glad you re along for the ride.

The Madlib Medicine Show series is a combination of Madlib's new hip-hop productions, remixes, beat tapes, and jazz, as well as mixtapes of funk, soul, Brazilian, psych, jazz and other undefined forms of music from the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl.

Release date: June 22nd
