F|O Points on this item

There are few musicians - let alone beat-makers - in the world whose output in its raw form provides his listener with a full on musical experience before anything is added. Madlib is such a talent. Hip-hop is his canvas, but he creates the most wondrous things with it. Before a microphone is switched on, before a rhyme even uttered, a Madlib beat stands alone as a complete thing.

Since the issue of the collaborative album with rapper Freddie Gibbs - Pinata, already being hailed as contender for rap album of the year - the label have been asked countless times to issue the beats Madlib created for the project as instrumentals. And they've conceded. Pinata put Gibbs in the spotlight, one that a growing audience is finally acknowledging that he deserves.

On Pinata Beats, though, it's Madlib, quietly spinning on the centre stage. Through seventeen cuts of arcane film snippets, dusted funk and soul, psych and prog rock musical diversions, Madlib proves to live up to what Gibbs once said of him: "Madlib quite simply, is music."

Please note that Pinata Beats is currently not in store but is an imported title from an overseas supplier.

Most of the time it takes around 2-3 weeks for the item to arrive here and be sent out but it can take longer if there are any delays.
