      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Nice to see this is getting a physical release as well! Now we should only have to wait about fifteen more years for that Cocaine Piñata full length.

I swear this album has been finished about five times. Excited for when it actually does drop.

Why no more Cocaïne for the LP?

That's what I'm saying!

What's the fun of a piñata of it isn't filled with cocaine?

most likely because naming something "Cocaine"-anything means limiting some commercial opportunities -- it won't be stocked in some stores, won't get posters in windows, wont be featured on iTunes homepage.

meanwhile, some artists just do what the fuck they want ... Z-Ro - Crack (2008), Z-Ro - Cocaine (2009), Z-Ro - Heroin (2010), Z-Ro - Meth (2011), Z-Ro - Angel Dust (2012). Wondering if his next joint is going to be called Bath Salt.

Madlib's music definitely sounds a lot bolder and more energetic in his collaborations. What's going on with that Captain Murphy Victor Vaughn track? Has that not been released yet?

patience. i believe they're releasing all the tracks in order from what they have on the [as] listing, so it looks like that'll be released sometime in late August or something.

My guess is that he has tons of instrumentals using psych/prog/kraut/punk-rock he started released only since MMS13. Like he said, Embryo is his favorite band right now. That's pretty heavy and we will hear more of this stuff soon. The two EP with Gibbs sound more soulful tho.

This beat was originally featured on that Karriem Riggin's Deviation Mix from 2009. The one he did on 1Xtra.

That was a killer mix, a lot of supposed Supreme Team beats on that mix!

Cheers!
