Lootpack – Madlib, Wildchild and DJ Romes – formed in the sea-side town of Oxnard CA, a couple hours north of Los Angeles, and a lifetime away from the mainstream hip-hop world. When Wolf signed the group to Stones Throw in 1998, Madlib had already produced an impressive body of work, enough to fill a 3LP debut album (“Soundpieces”) and a series of 12-inch singles. Loopdigga EP collects the rare tracks on those out-of-print singles, each taken from the original master record. The EP is now available at Stones Throw.
“Loopdigga,” the title track featuring Madlib and MED, is as definitive as any Madlib production of this area, with three disconnected hip-hop verses about digging for records, connected by dusty jazz interludes and the sounds of Quasimoto browsing a record store.
Homeboy Sandman has teamed with UK producer Paul White for a 7 track record titled “White Sands”. This is the third and final release in a series pairing the Queens MC with the vision of a single producer, following Kool Herc “Fertile Crescent” with El Rntc, and “All That I Hold Dear”, with M Slago. Out now on vinyl and digital at Stones Throw or iTunes.
Producer Chief from switzerland has assembled a solid collection of 31 beats, demos and other goodies produced in 2013 to form “Echo Chamber”, the new project available now as a free download on Bandcamp. This release is a close look at Chief’s multi-faceted productions, it features both previously available and yet-unreleased beats, collaborations with the likes of Deheb, Ghostape, and much more! “
