The Details: Oh No, Dr. No’s Ethiopum (Stones Throw, 2010)

A Quick Review: Madlib’s brother follows up his collection of crucial Lebanese/Turkish beats (Dr. No’s Oxperiment) with a scatterbrained look through Egon‘s prized collection of rare Ethiopian LPs. If you’ve ever thought about snagging a volume of the popular Ethiopiques series, this heady mix has got you covered on the psych, soul, funk and jazz side of things–providing a perfect introduction to a rather overwhelming but rewarding corner of the world music department.
