In his 2002 Red Bull Music Academy lecture, Madlib revealed the secrets of his favourite studio equipment, the story behind his Quasimoto alias, his work as Yesterday’s New Quintet, and more.
Since the early ’90s, the reclusive Madlib has been producing music at a relentless pace. Whether he’s working with artists like Freddie Gibbs, MF Doom or Erykah Badu, collaborating with the late J Dilla, or working under one of his own aliases, like the drugged-out party creature Quasimoto, Madlib has carved out his own idiosyncratic corner in the massive hip-hop universe.

Armed with several identities, the self-acclaimed workaholic MC/DJ/producer Otis Jackson Jr. (AKA Madlib) creates the finest crate-dug beats, self-produced vintage jazz and astrotravelling rap. His father was an accomplished R&B session musician who played with the likes of David Axelrod and H.B. Barnum. His uncle is Jon Faddis, a legendary trumpeter who played with Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, and Bob James. Following in the footsteps of his family, Madlib is in the studio for up to ten hours a day, creating albums that have a unique sound.
