Released on the 24th of May on Leeds Jazz & Soul label ATA Records , “Madvillain Vol. 2” is the second part of the eagerly anticipated new LP from Abstract Orchestra . “Madvillain vol 2” takes the blueprint laid out on their debut LP “Dilla” and applies it to the work of producer Madlib and M.C. DOOM’s “Madvillain” project.
Led by Saxophonist Rob Mitchell, Abstract Orchestra have been a consistent presence on the u.k. music scene, touring constantly in promotion of their debut LP “Dilla” and follow up 45 “New Day feat. Illa J.” The band itself is based on the classic jazz big band instrumentation of saxes, trumpets and trombones and features the cream of the north of England’s jazz scene who collectively have played with Jamiroquai, Corinne Bailey Rae, Mark Ronson, Martha Reeves, John Legend & the Roots, Roots Manuva and Amy Winehouse.
Madvillain Vol. 2 was recorded live in it’s entirety at ATA’s own vintage analogue studio in Leeds. All tracks were recorded in one take with little to no overdubs and no editing, quantizing or other such studio trickery. The band were recorded live in the room to 2 inch tape and the recording captures a group of creative and dedicated musicians that have honed their sound through years of touring.
Mashup 1 is a re-working of Abstract’s own MADVILLAIN arrangements, including samples taken from Madmix 1 and Bistro. Composer/Arranger Rob Mitchell uses His sampler to create Lofi glitch beats with reverse samples. Meat Grinder creates a great deal of suspense with the flutes, muted trombones and heavy riffs from the bass, baritone sax and Fender Rhodes. Heavily influenced by Lalo Schifrin it has an thread of spy tv themes running through it.
Similar to Mashup 1, Mashup 2 is clearly inspired by Madlib’s production. A re-work of Abstract’s own MADVILLAIN arrangements, it includes samples taken from Operation Lifesaver, borrowed time and Madmix 3. Rhinestone Cowboy launches into a heavy weight groove from the bass and drums, with flutes acting like fife’s readying for battle.
To round off the album, Abstract reworks Dabrye’s ‘ Air ’ and have included the original vocal of MF DOOM. Dabye’s original is heavily soaked in synths and drum machines, similar to Vangelis’s soundtrack work on Bladerunner. Mitchell explores this further and is influenced by Bob Brookmeyer’s later work ‘Electricity’, which explores synths and jazz orchestration.
