Young Jazz Rebels is a Madlib jazz group from the Yesterdays Universe collective. Their debut album “Slave Riot” is an avant-garde free jazz record, a style Madlib has been developing with Young Jazz Rebels since their debut on 2006’s Chrome Children compilation with the track “Nino’s Deed”.

Inspired primarily by independent and experimental jazz vinyl from the late 60s, 70s and 80s, Slave Riot begins and ends with audible vinyl static, and it’s packaged uniform with Madlib’s other new jazz release, Miles Away: CD with heavy-boarded mini-gatefold LP-style package with a “tip-on” gatefold photo and inner sleeve. The double LP is printed with a duo-tone black panther on front & back. The Young Jazz Rebels: Melvin Hampson, Juggy Lewis, Lena Hamilton, Mary Jane, Tyrone Crumb, Lamont Parker, Monk Hughes, Brother Dave L. Produced & Arranged by Madlib.

Again a solid release on Stones Throw and both the vinyl and CD are available via our friends at Rushhour!
