Madlib – The Red (Live At Fabric)
Here’s a clip of Madlib performing ‘The Red’ at Fabric last Tuesday. The crowd were pretty terrible at getting the timing right when they were shouting ‘turn it up’. At one point that night Madlib stormed off stage – joke or not, he sent some shitty hype man up to try and get us all into it a bit more. I think the problem was Madlib spent too much time playing 3 minute vocal samples and stopping tracks after 10 seconds than actually playing to the crowd. J Rocc killed it in his set before Mad’s and when the two of them teamed up they got it started again with a predictable (but fantastic) Dilla-fest. It was a good night! Thanks to Benji B and the Deviation crew.
