Madlib’s Early Bedroom Studio & Vinyl Collection

From the record cover lined walls to the stacks recording equipment piled high on itself, Madlib lets loose a small collection of photos that were taken by DJ Design and date as far back as 1994.   As expected, there are quite a few gems from his early days as a producer/beat maker.

Most of the music on Madlib Medicine Show #5: The History of the Loop Digga, was created from beats stored on floppy disc, created on SP-1200, and recorded & mixed on a Tascam 8-track, 1/4-inch reel-to-reel, or Tascam 8-track cassette deck. (Even the debut Quasimoto album was recorded on 8-track cassette.)

See the complete collection over at Stones Throw.

  1. That’s what’s up….interesting, the way he used to stack his crates…almost seems inconvenient…i definitely respect Lib’s deep digging…

  2. Doesnt show shit, just two interesting pictures, would have loved some more pictures of the studio instead of those Reel to Reel boxes.

  3. Man, I get so hyped on making beats checking this out. Damn Dissertation.
    Also need to get that Medicine Show 5 asap!
