“As if the family weren’t busy enough, son Michael (Brother of DJ phenom Madlib, son of soul singer Otis Jackson, Sr., and nephew of jazz trumpeter Jon Faddis) also decided to try his hand in the music world. Nicknamed Oh No the Mischievous Rebel by Lootpack MC Wildchild, the youngest Jackson soon shortened his name to simply “Oh No.” Hooked on DJing and rapping since age 11, Oh No would practice making beats during breaks at work. The hard effort paid off when Oh No recorded his first singles with Stones Throw and Groove Attack and started producing for Medaphoar, Aloe Blacc, and Murs. His solo album The Disrupt, for which Oh No both produced and MCed, was released in 2004, and two years later Exodus into Unheard Rhymes, which took its beats from the Galt MacDermot (composer of Hair) catalog, came out. In 2007, after exploring the psychedelic sounds of Turkey, Greece, Lebanon, and Italy, Oh No issued the beat record Dr. No’s Oxperiment.”

“Ethiopian sample-based hip-hop instrumentation from Oxnard, CA? Yes m’am, straight from the 805, Oh No aka Dr. No drops yet another classic album off Stones Throw that is sure to entertain jazz heads, hip-hop heads, culture vultures, and all those in search of a creative and pure sound—Dr. No’s Ethiopium. Following 2007’s Oxperiment, Oh No once again comes through with a lavish and cohesive album in the vein of label mate (and brother) Madlib’s Beat Konducta Vol. 3-4: Live in India. Oh No’s impeccable beat composition shines through on every track with a self-contained energy based off sampling traditional ’60s and ’70s Ethiopian sounds. It’s a perfect combination of tribal rhythms, synchronized to an elevated hip-hop form, which all exquisitely morphs into a standout landscape of rich and exotic goodness. Dr. No’s Ethiopium is a whirlwind tour past the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden and Djibouti–yet feels local and familiar. It is a consistent headnodding excursion that introduces strange sounds, which many of us may have never heard otherwise.”

“Dr. No’s Oxperiment is one of the most fulfilling beat-driven instrumental hip-hop records since J Dilla’s Donuts, and the fact that he pulled it off solely by turning to a rarely-tapped vein of psych that few hip-hop producers have even approached is proof enough that talent runs rampant in the family. Hopefully Oh No isn’t sick of hearing comparisons to his brother– after putting together a record filled with occasionally surreal and frequently hard-hitting beats that rank up there with some of the best moments on Madvillainy and The Unseen, he’ll probably be getting a lot more of them.”
