Madlib – Rock Konducta

new music Comments Off on Madlib – Rock Konducta

Madlib’s Rock Konducta is coming out July 15.  It is the fifth installment in Madlib’s Beat Konducta series following Beat Konducta: Movie Scenes (2006), Beat Konducta in India (2007), A Tribute to J Dilla (2009) and Beat Konducta in Africa (2010).

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.

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.

On vinyl, the album has been released in two parts – Rock Konducta Pt. 1, available here, and Rock Konducta Pt. 2 coming July 8.
