The album that helped bring prolific rapper/producer Madlib to a wider audience, Soundpieces: Da Antidote! is a masterclass in hip hop beat making. Consisting of Madlib, rapper Wildchild and DJ Romes, Lootpack's debut album was one of the earliest releases on the legendary Stones Throw Records and still remains one of the best in their catalogue.
Madlib and Wildchild are decent rappers (Madlib is very chilled while Wildchild fancies himself as a lyricist in the old skool tradition) but it's the production that really make Soundpieces pop, Madlib's creations sounding like nothing before it or since. In fact, while you're at it, you should probably get the instrumentals too.
The sound is very much rooted in the west coast, but Madlib's mad scientist approach to sampling from a wide array of genres make these tracks full of surprises. Highlights include "Questions", "The Anthem" and "The Long Awaited" featuring Dilated Peoples but this is an album to play from front to back.
