DISTILLED & BOTTLED by BANG YA HEAD: MED, Blu & Mayer Hawthorne - "The Buzz" (Madlib Beat)

While chances are kinda slim that this was recorded all at once (but you never really know with Stones Throw), Rappcats gave cyber-birth to an amazing-sounding MED, Blu, Mayer Hawthorne & Madlib track, "The Buzz" around 12-1am Tuesday-Wednesday morning. Not unlike The Burgundy EP, MED & Blu share vocal duties, Madlib produced the beat, and Hawthorne's relegated to the buttery smooth hook; an unreleased Dâm-Funk track will also appear on flip Side B. The Buzz 12" EP will include two vocal tracks, bonus beat, instrumentals, and a cappella. It's currently available for pre-order today (November 5th) at either Stones Throw or Fat Beats. Let's talk about the sheer talent Stones Throw managed to wrangle yup for "The Buzz:" prolific underground king Madlib chopped up a beautiful Boom-Bap-infused Soul sample, the label's former Blue-Eyed Soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne on the hook, and MED & Blu, two of the most talented and criminally under-rated rappers in the game; Not to mention G-Funk revivalist and recent Snoop Dogg/Steve Arrington collaborator, Dâm-Funk's presumed banger, "Peroxide" on Side B! The Buzz EP will see a November 26th wide-release (ship date?) through MED's own Bang Ya Head label imprint. It's companion cover "is a bottle of booze with a label wrapped around it, designed by Jeff Jank," as Stones Throw simply put it in a web-press release.
