Back in the 90's, "beat tapes," as a Hip Hop producer's demo-reel is now quaintly referred to, were literally that: cassette tapes of beats that a producer made either for himself, his friends, or for potential collaborators. As you can imagine, Madlib made a bunch of 'em in the days between his early productions for the Alkaholiks (circa '92) and the release of his Quasimoto album (2000) - after which he took a couple of years off of the beats to focus on making jazz music with his fictional five piece, Yesterdays New Quintet. This collection of beats showcases the way that Madlib's early Hip Hop demos were filtered out to his friends and associates and provides an opportunity for a unique view into Madlib's working process: these beats, often free-styled on whatever machine he had at the ready, were picked up by rappers over a period of many years.
A must buy for any true underground hip hop head.. One of the best loopa that we digga.
