Beastie Boys Remixes by Al Lover in Honor of MCA

In honor of a great man, Adam Yauch – who throughout my formative years onto adulthood inspired me in countless ways, I have remixed a couple tracks from one of the greatest hip hop records ever recorded, Paul’s Boutique. This album has had such an impact on my life and my art and I wouldn’t be doing what I do today without it. Rest in Peace MCA, your were a beautiful person and may the positive impact of your life and creativity vibrate through the universe eternally.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Thuggin’ by Rappcats

At Friday’s Madlib Medicine Show tour stop in San Francisco, the producer announced a collaborative project with the rapper Freddie Gibbs. Gibbs also debuted “Thuggin’” and “Deep,” from their debut EP.  The 6-track record is released on Madlib’s Madlib Invazion label – the imprint the producer founded to release his 13 Madlib Medicine Show volumes. The duo’s as-of-yet untitled album is planned for release in first quarter 2012.

For Madlib, this marks another entry in an exciting series of collaborative albums that he has created with the likes of DOOM (Madvillainy), the late J Dilla (Jaylib) and Strong Arm Steady (In Search Of Stoney Jackson). For Gibbs, the album serves as somewhat of a departure: coming off the heels of his acclaimed Cold Day In Hell album, and before the release of the album he’s finishing for Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint, this project gives the Gary, Indiana-bred, LA-based rapper a chance to stretch out over the Beat Konducta’s lush musical tapestry. If the first single is any indication, this collaboration will find Gibbs’ rough raps landing atop smoldering soul and jagged psychedelia.

Created specially for Madlib’s Medicine Show Tour, late 2011 the Thuggin’ EP contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats. Artwork by Jeff Jank features a dual A-side, “Madlib” embossed on one side, “Freddie Gibbs” on the flip.

The Durden Papers Vol. 1, the new mixtape from Xperience (XP)

In 2006, XP released his first solo project titled “Soultree”. He produced 90 percent of it himself in Reason. At the time, Reason was still in its initial stages so production alone was groundbreaking. Xperience was featured on Macklemore’s release “Language of My World”. His performance on the track was noticed by the group Oldominion and he was honored to become a part of that crew. They were grateful for his remarkable work and asked him to be a part of what would become his first national tour. Xperience released his second solo album “William The VIII”, available on iTunes, and at the sbdvsnstudios store. XP just recently finished production on his new mixtape, “The Durden Papers Vol. 1”.

XP has opened for artists such as Snoop Dogg, Kool Keith, KRS-One, Hieroglyphics, Bone Thuggs and Harmony, Bilal, Brother Ali, Atmosphere and others.

The Durden Papers

The Durden Papers Vol. 1, the new mixtape from Xperience (XP), is a collection of grimey underground bangers and mainstream heaters. With a fresh take on things, XP strays from the sound of his first two albums to create dynamic tracks for the clubs and the subs. While displaying his talent in singing, rapping and writing he keeps it fun and versatile, exploring new styles and sounds. On a national tour with Macklemore this winter of 2011, XP will be donating a portion of his profits to organizations affiliated with educating incarcerated youth.
