Double vinyl LP pressing. From his early days in ‘90s collective KMD to his reinvention as a masked supervillain leading the indie hip-hop revolution, MF Doom has consistently pushed the boundaries of hip-hop in new and unexpected directions. While Doom's lyrical genius is well documented, he has quietly become an important figure behind the boards as well. Doom has always produced his own music, and in the early 2000s he released the acclaimed ten-part Special Herbs instrumental series, introducing the world to the dusty, lo-fi loops that define his production aesthetic. In the years since, Doom has supplied soundscapes for Ghostface Killah's classic Fishscale album, produced an entire album for Masta Ace, and witnessed a new generation of emcees (including Joey Bada$$, Capital STEEZ, and Bishop Nehru) using Special Herbs beats on their breakthrough mixtapes. Now, the villain is putting the spotlight back on his production with the official vinyl release of Special Blends, Vol. 1 & 2. Originally self-released in extremely limited quantities back in 2004, Special Blends Vol. 1 & 2 pairs vintage Doom-produced Special Herbs instrumentals with classic hip-hop and R&B vocals. Mixed by Doom himself, this collection incorporates vocals from a wide range of iconic records.
