September 27th release. Early shipping via Stones Throw.
Announcing live Medicine Show dates in November & December.
When Madlib launched the Madlib Medicine Show last year, the original idea was twelve releases, one a month, alternating between original works and mixtapes spanning different music genres. For the most part, he kept his word – it just took a little longer to finally see number 12. For us, presenting the Medicine Show series has been a grand experiment. Musically, the series represents a lot of what we listen to when we're around Madlib – jazz, dub, prog rock, disco, soul, and his very own kind of hip-hop. So here it is …
Madlib Medicine Show #12: Raw Medicine is the latest collection of new Madlib Remixes, featuring a host of un-suspecting collaborators that run the gamut from thugs, street poets, star emcees and underdogs. We ain't naming names. The show runs 60 minute with 30+ tracks.
Announcing: In November and December Madlib will hit six as-of-yet-to-be-announced North American cities, taking his Medicine Show LIVE. While the particulars are being sorted out, we’re hearing rumors of J. Rocc sets, live screen printing by Hit+Run of limited edition vinyl, and surprise guests – including one with whom he’s currently working on a collaborative album. (And we do not mean the metal faced guy.)
