Aside from The Professionals, a stellar project alongside his younger brother Oh No that dropped earlier this year, Madlib has been keeping things chill in 2020 in terms of releases. However, it looks like the seasoned mixmaster will soon be linking up with for yet another collaborative .

Arriving via the producer’s Madlib Invazion imprint, Sound Ancestors has apparently been in the works for a few years and we even have a listen at the project’s first single, “Road of the Ones.”

Take a look below at Kieran Hebden, , described his collaborative effort with Madlib via Instagram:

A few months ago I completed an with my friend Madlib that we’d been making for the last few years. He is always making loads of in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas into a Madlib solo . Not into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an designed to be listened to start to finish. I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice and we decided to this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, , manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of of over a couple of years stretch and during that I put together this with all the parts that fitted with my vision.

Eothan Alapatt @nowagain worked with us the whole project guiding and advising and has prepared the for release. He’s had Bernie Grundman cut the vinyl and everything is in production and will be ready soon.
