So Madlib is back again. not that he ever left, he’s constantly on the ball with new productions and things you wouldn’t expect (well I didn’t) He’s basically teamed up with Samuel Herring of that really good band Future Island, But did you know Herring could rap? Because well, I didn’t and he’s fire. His rap alter-ego is Hemlock Ernst
The two are collaborating under the name ‘Trouble Knows Me’ and they have an EP coming out 1st September containing 6 tracks, 3 of which are instrumentals.
You wouldn’t even know its Herring until the end when his vocals get near to what he normally sounds like. Of course the production is on point, but you would expect anything less from Madlib? No, no you wouldn’t
