Madlib’s 2015 collaboration with M.E.D. and Blue gets stripped back to the instrumentals and served up afresh for the keen beat-heads among you. The subtraction of the flows just lets the listener relish the details of Madlib’s woozy funk-sample constructions, and Bad Neighbour Instrumentals even features an extra three tracks of bonus beats! Double LP on BangYaHead.

Finally! An album of which my skater friends can listen to in the park without receiving looks from the old lady who often passes by.
Madlib's wonky rap beats from Bad Neighbour (an album of which I very much enjoyed) has been given the Home Counties treatment. I wouldn't consider this an Instrumental album, though, as some samples still retain some speech, however if they had been removed I'd think I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much.
There are some silent parts of selected song which were obviously meant for some bloke to rap over, however they are very few and far between, so all is good. Fans of KAYTRANADA's "mixtapes" will enjoy this.
