Medicine Show: The Brick
13CD Box


"Madlib Medicine Show is a music series the producer began in late 2009 as the official launch of his label Madlib Invazion. The original idea was simple: 12 releases, one per month, alternating between original works and mixtapes spanning different genres. It took a little longer than planned to hit number 12 -- so a bonus, No. 13 was added to the mix. Now that the individual CD offerings are increasingly hard to locate, the Madlib Invazion crew has decide to collect the entire series into a single release. We call this collection Medicine Show: The Brick. With The Brick, you get it all: Medicine Show No. 1: Before The Verdict - hip hop vocal album feat. Guilty Simpson; Medicine Show No. 2: Flight To Brazil - 80 minutes of Brazilian psych, folk and jazz; Medicine Show No. 3: Beat Konducta In Africa - hip hop beats inspired by and based on obscure & independent African vinyl gems; Medicine Show No. 4: 420 Chalice All-Stars - all Jamaican sounds, 80 minutes, complete with Los Angeles medicinal marijuana guide; Medicine Show No. 5: History Of The Loop Digga - Madlib's early years, 1990-2000, from beat cassettes produced for local rap crew Crate Digga's Palace; Medicine Show No. 6: The Brain Wreck Show - psych-prog-avante- freak-out-funk rock; Medicine Show No. 7: High Jazz - all new Madlib productions from his collective of jazz groups and musicians known as Yesterdays Universe; Medicine Show No. 8: Advanced Jazz - a jazz music course with no grades, lecturer or tests - just a room of dusty jazz vinyl and Madlib at the turntable; Medicine Show No. 9: Channel 85 Presents Nittyville - hip-hop album feat. Frank Nitt; Medicine Show No. 10: Black Soul - the Disco era, 80 mins, mixed by Madlib; Medicine Show No. 11: Low Budget High Fi - hip hop of dirty demos produced by Madlib, with Oh No, Karriem Riggins, MED, Strong Arm Steady, AG, Guilty Simpson, J. Rocc and Jaylib; Medicine Show No. 12: Raw Medicine (Madlib Remixes) - part mixtape, part beat tape, featuring a host of un-suspecting collaborators that run the gamut from thugs, street poets, star emcees and underdogs - 60 minute with 30+ tracks; and of course Medicine Show No. 13: Black Tape - the bonus Medicine Show and sequel to #12. All Medicine Show releases revolve around the Beat Konducta's 4-ton stack of vinyl. Get a glimpse of that motherlode with Medicine Show: The Brick."
