Stones Throw released a new amazing Re-Issue boxset for Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix, an album that was originally made for Madlib’s personal listening collection. The album is composed of 25 remixes by Madlib. As usual, Madlib’s beats are super fresh, a nice labyrinth of his jazz-soul and psyche-funk work perfectly skewed to make your your head knock.
Included in this new box set is a double LP with a cover by Jeff Jank and photographed by Eric Coleman, a download card, plus a new limited edition 12-page comic.
James Reitano of TFU Studios, produced the classic 1970’s comic style animation for the widely celebrated Madvillain “ALL CAPS” video. The concept for the comic included in the boxset was to pick up where the ALL CAPS video left off. As you can see, the comic will retain the oldschool comic book feel, including all of the aesthetically pleasing illustration, as well as a letters page with a real letter.
Why tease? Stones Throw lets you preview the whole album online.
