Boomkat Product Review:
Episode 5 of Madlib's Medicine Show series is a essentially a "best of" his superrare beat tapes made during his formative years 1990-2000. 'Lib made a stack of tapes in the period between producing the Alkaholiks debut and really getting it together on the seminal Quasimoto album, showcasing whatever archetypal sample jams he was working on at the time. These tapes would be circulated among friends and prospective MCs, with some making their way onto releases by Wildchild, Percee P and others. One section is given over to productions by CDP aka Crate Diggas Palace, the studio/rap crew attached to his Oxnard, CA beat lab and featuring very early appearances from Madlib and his alter ego, Lord Qasimoto. The beats are every bit as abstract and blunted as you'd expect, and then some! It's like being given access to the foistiest corners of 'Libs brain/studio, unearthing all manner of beat nuggets to make your head spin 360 on it's axis if ypu've got a soft spot for this era of the beat. Vinyl and CD copies come with loads of extras but if you're only after the juice then then is well recommended!
