A Montreal native with West-African roots, Antoine started developing a love for records when his father passed his collection of French, African, Caribbean and Brazilian classics onto him. Ever since, the collector turned selector has spent countless hours in musky basements both here and abroad (Dakar, Lima, Paris, Quito, Rio) in the never-ending search for the perfect beat!

Future Classic: Med x Blu x Rose x Madlib “Burgundy Whip”

Hip-Hop

Madlib has been pumping out some incredibly dope beats lately and the latest is a smooth track for Blu and M.E.D that makes spring come early and just makes me want to rent a convertible and bump it all the way to a sunny beach somewhere in Cali. Rolling drumlines and light synths have been favorites of mine in the beatconducta’s sample arsenal and here he combines both masterfully.

Ever since his debut album I’ve always thought Medaphoar had the perfect complimentary flow for Madlib beats and Blu well that’s just a perfect match. Thus this great song is a sign of great things to come for the group. The burgundy colored 12 inch (featuring production by Georgia Anne Muldrow and another Madlib banger) is already sold out on MED new imprint Bang ya Head. Make sure to keep an eye out when copies resurface cause if you are like me you’ll want to spin this all summer.
