The Unseen (Explicit)

The Unseen by Quasimoto
Released: Jul 2000
Label: Stones Throw Records
Quasimoto was originally a Madlib in-joke. DJ Design (and then Stones Throw art director Jeff Jank) visualized Lord Quas as an orange aardvark inspired by the comic book Cerebus and the mask-clad humans on the 70s animated science-fiction satire La Planéte Sauvage. Madlib used musical interludes from that film’s Alain Goraguer soundtrack for The Unseen (particularly on “Come On Feet”), and dipped into works by Sun Ra (“Astro Black”), the Last Poets (“Goodmorning Sunshine”) and others. The result was an abstract masterpiece that cemented Madlib as one of the most imaginative producers.
