Madlib "Sound Ancestors" Review

Producers are the foundation to every song on your playlist. Whether the sounds are orchestral, pop or grungy, an artist can only thrive when paired with complimentary production. I fell in love with beat makers at 16. Repeating albums from composers such as the late J. Dilla and 9th Wonder introduced me to the wonderful world of sampling. This space was already familiar because of my parents blasting music early Saturday mornings. The soul of 70’s records was warm, bright and overwhelming. That energy exploded through the house in a way that I could never explain without smiling.
