Madlib- maverick, prolific, and tirelessly uninhibited. WLIB AM: King Of The Wigflip plays like the days when AM radio ruled the airwaves, transmitting a crackling, low-fi melange of endless sample fodder, vocal snippets, and sonic intuition, turning singles into stars anf lippin wigs with each twist of the dial. WLIB AM: King Of The Wigflip finds Madlib venturing away from the deconstruction of world rhythms on recent projects and returning to his Western hemisphere roots in hip hop and R&B.
"Madlib was not consciously meant to be last in the Beat Generation series," says BBE's Peter Adarkwah, but when considering the producer to which he is most often associated- the late J Dilla- it is without question the proper closure.
