Image: 1604330 From his early days in 90s collective KMD to his reinvention as
a masked supervillain leading the indie hip-hop revolution, MF
DOOM has consistently pushed the boundaries of hip-hop in new
and unexpected directions. While DOOM’s lyrical genius is welldocumented, he has quietly become an important figure behind the
boards as well. DOOM has always produced his own music, and in
the early 2000s he released the acclaimed ten-part Special Herbs
instrumental series, introducing the world to the dusty, lo-fi loops that
define his production aesthetic.
In the years since, DOOM has supplied soundscapes for Ghostface
Killah’s classic Fishscale album, produced an entire album for Masta
Ace, and witnessed a new generation of emcees (including Joey
Bada$$, Capital STEEZ, and Bishop Nehru) using Special Herbs
beats on their breakthrough mixtapes. Now, the villain is putting
the spotlight back on his production with the official vinyl release
of Special Blends, Vol. 1 & 2. Originally self-released in extremely
limited quantities back in 2004, Special Blends Vol. 1 & 2 pairs
vintage DOOM-produced Special Herbs instrumentals with classic
hip-hop and R&B vocals. Mixed by DOOM himself, this collection
incorporates vocals from a wide range of iconic records. Special
Blends Vol. 1 & 2 is available in standard 2XLP vinyl format, as well
as a deluxe version inside a custom-printed burlap bag. Available from 17.06.2016
