Soundpieces: Da Antidote! (3LP)
Though they were together since high school, the Lootpack - Madlib, Wildchild and DJ Romes - first made their presence known in 1994 when the group’s beat conductor, Madlib, produced “Mary Jane,” a Tha Alkaholiks 12”. Later that year, Lootpack’s lyrical skills were heard on the song “Turn The Party Out” on the Alkaholiks’ debut LP “21 And Over,” and “WLIX” from the Liks’ second LP.
The positive feedback from these collaborations led to the Lootpack’s own EP “Ill Psych Move” on Crate Digger’s Palace Records in 1996, a venture funded by Madlib’s father, soul-crooner Otis Jackson, Sr.
It was through this poorly-distributed 12” that the group caught the attention of Stones Throw Records’ founder Peanut Butter Wolf, who heard the record on college radio and hunted the group down. The group eventually signed for Stones Throw, paving the way for the release of 1999’s “Soundpieces: Da Antidote”.
