Some of Madlib’s deserved criticism is that he has done too much and that with so many releases his music gets too banal and watered down. However this release is a perfect assortment of hip-hop instrumentals forced to be brief with their 7” release. I’m sure these beats would get repetitive if they went on for 4 minutes, which is why they’re fantastic in this format.

Madlib has a great ear for jazzy samples and here they match perfectly with boom bap drums. A great sample of independent hip-hop at the turn of the century.
