Madlib Beat Konducta Vol. 1: Movie Scenes on LP
When Madlib followed J Dilla’s now-classic Donuts with an instrumental concept-album of his own, a series was born. Beat Konducta, the alias he often scribbled on the beat CDs he handed to friends and potential collaborators, left the realm of the unknown and entered the record-buying public’s conscious as Madlib’s latest nom de plume.
His unedited CDs often wove quirky narratives, served as obsessive listening material to those lucky enough to hear them, and became raw working material for Madvillain, Jaylib, Ghostface, De La Soul, Talib Kweli and Erykah Badu. The concept of the Beat Konducta series was simple: put Madlib’s raw beat tapes into album form – one by one on vinyl, with two volumes at a time appearing on sporadically released CDs.
This was the first official release in Madlib's Beat Konducta series (following one un-official release, Beat Konducta Vol. 0). Movie Scenes are instrumental hip-hop productions by Madlib presented in the style of '70s TV and film library records.
