"Cue 06" is a new instrumental single from elusive hip-hop maestro Madlib, included onÂ the soundtrack to Stones Throw Records' new auto-documentaryÂ Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton, which is now available onÂ DVD and Blu-Ray (with the soundtrack included)Â here.Â
The doc is composed of unreleased archival footage, "inner-circle" home videos and photographs, rare concert footageÂ and revelatory interviews with Stones Throw artists. Watch the official trailer below.
The record in question is quintessential Madlib, the dusty, blunted beat accentuated by airy strings, horns and informed soul and funk samples.Â Can you dig it?
The 10-trackÂ Our Vinyl Weighs A TonÂ soundtrack will be released on vinyl later this summer, so stay tuned for that, and keep up with Madlib and Stones Throw via Twitter in the meantime: @Madlib / @StonesThrow.
[The last record we heard from Madlib was "Hold The Organ," a choice cut from his Rock Konducta Vol. 1-2 project, the latest instalment in his ongoing Beat Konducta series, inspired by international kraut, prog and psych rock from the 60s-80s. Listen here.]
