Far from sloppy seconds, the album's both imminently enjoyable and a valuable glimpse into the creative process of one of hip-hop's most accomplished producers.
One of hip hops best producers is at it again. Madlib's new record Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2: Movie Scenes is a solid addition to the ever evolving catalog of Otis Jackson, Jr. Madlib's groups are a testament to his brilliance Lootpack, Jaylib, and Madvillain.
His latest is 35 solid instrumental tracks on Vol. 1-2: Movie Scenes and showcases his hip hop production and taste in grade A beats. Some might be turned off by the lack of a rapper or singer but it doesn't bother me in the least. Like Dilla's Donuts the amount and complexity of the beats here can be overwhelming at times. This is a great album from one of hip hop's greats.
