The fifth installment in The Other Side series features rapper/producer Madlib on the mix CD and Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf's visual guide to LA's sites and sounds on DVD. Madlib's diverse audio tour includes tracks from the eclectic jazz consciousness originator - Sun Ra Arkestra, 60's psychedelic blues quintet Outlaw Blues Band, legendary reggae drummer (Burning Spear) Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Jamaican record label head/ DJ producer Prince Jazzbo, and Madlib's own tunes. Once again, Madlib expands his abilities beyond the core hop-hop that he's known for.

This is the fifth installment of Time Out’s Other Side CD/DVD series, where an artist is invited to put together an “audio tour” mix-CD that represents their city and also do a video tour of some of their favorite local spots. The focus is on Los Angeles, with Madlib doing the musical honors while Stones Throw main-man Peanut Butter Wolf plays tour-guide on the DVD. The CD mixes together tracks that fit perfectly with the Madlib/Stones Throw aesthetic: funk rarities, smoked-out reggae from lesser-known artists like Prince Jazzbo and Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, eccentric jazz numbers, hip-hop and a few of Madlib’s own creations. I’m not so sure what some of these tracks have to do with Los Angeles (Sun Ra’s “Nuclear War” for example), but that’s OK because they’re all interesting selections and ‘lib does a fine job of seamlessly blending the intros and outros. If nothing else, the wigged-out vibe is a testament to the quality of West Coast pot. The DVD is less vital, with Peanut Butter Wolf leading a tour of some of his favorite LA places – restaurants, clubs, stores…etc. If you’ve ever longed for the day when you could watch Peanut Butter Wolf shop for sneakers, that day has finally come! Otherwise, there’s not much to see here. It isn’t an entire loss for music fans though – there is an interview with Wolf where he talks about the history of Stones Throw and videos from some of the label’s artists.
The CD on the other hand is quite good. There were no tracks which I disliked. A great assorment of tracks from Jazz, Regae, Hip-Hop, Funk and Blues, the last track escpecially by the Freestyle Fellowship is sweet as.
I would recommend buying the soundtrack, but steer clear of the DVD unless you want to watch 60 mins of advertisments.
