Madlib has shared a new single called ‘Hopprock’. Following their recent collaborative track ‘Road of the Lonely Ones’, the new song was edited, arranged, and mastered by Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden. Check it out below.
This month, Madlib is set to release a new album called Sound Ancestors through his Madlib Invazion label. “He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album,” Four Tet said of the album’s creation. “Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish. I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.”
