King of the beatmakers Madlib has always been mad-productive: Beat Konducta Volume 1: Movie Scenes was the first in a series of several records of hip-hop instrumentals he put out in the 2000s. This one is themed around imaginary 70’s TV shows and films, each track painting a groovy vintage picture, library style.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 July 2015

Is it possible to make cut and splice hip-hop any better than this? It's part of a series of issues of Madlib work from the early 2000s and can easily be counted alongside Dilla's 'Donuts' as playful sample-heavy scissor-hop of the highest order, based around a series of imagined '70s TV shows and films.

The opening tracks have enough invention to kill a horse with wildly juddering beats, changes in tempo and samples coming and going as fast as you can blink. It's a wildly enjoyable and varied ride. 'The Payback (gotta)' uses a dubbified rock band as it's basis stripping away all but the bass and drums. 'Third Ear (More)' uses a kind of clarinet and piano loop, chucking across vocal slabs on each bar. It's gorgeous. There are some things I don't like and they tend to be the more electro and cheesy of his oeuvre of few of which appear on the B side but like 'Donuts' if you don't like one track there'll be another along in a minute and tracks like 'Pyramid' are just truly breathtaking slabs of sleek soul smoothness.
