Madlib Sound Ancestors

Madlib Sound Ancestors | Tucker & Bloom Bags

The year is off to a great start musically speaking. Madlib's Sound Ancestor release has been on repeat since it dropped. A collaborative work with UK based Four Tet and Madlib, the record is jazz, sample chops, and lovely electronic sound scapes drawing from a wide span on influences. "Road Of The Lonely Ones"is an ear worm featuring a sample by the Ethics track "Lost In a Lonely World". We are looking forward to stocking the release when it's not sold out but recommend you grab a copy wherever you can. File under "modern classic". 

 

 

“A few months ago I completed work on an album with my friend Madlib that we’d been making for the last few years. He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album. Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish. I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.” - Kieren Hebden AKA Four Tet

Legendary DJ/author/b-ball sage Bobbito García has released his first children’s book Aim High, Little Giant, Aim High! The story is about Taína, a nine-year-old, Afro Boricua basketball novice growing up in Brooklyn during a pandemic who learns valuable life lessons from family, friends, and the community, both on and off the court. The narrative seamlessly weaves social-emotional learning with math, arts, social justice, identity, culture, and sports education, all in a fun (and at times goofy) manner. The pre-order for the book is already sold out but stay tuned to grab the restock on a hard copy which is on the way.
