Oh No - Dr. No's Experiment

Well I certainly didn't find this record first but I am glad I finally did stumble across it. Actually, a friend of mine sent it over with a bunch of other stuff last week - what a score.

I have a hard time keeping up on my underground hip-hop. I used to work with a guy who was good about feeding me stuff but he moved on...

Oh No is the younger brother of Madlib (and son of Otis Jackson, Sr., and nephew of Jon Faddis) and has really come into his own as a producer. This record is right up my alley, mixing beats with just tremendously tasteful Asian and Middle Eastern samples.

No single track of the close to 30 clocks in at even close to the two-minute mark but no matter, the whole is so much greater than the sum of its parts...
