Madlib is soon to release a super-limited (300 copies) Rock Konducta 45-inch vinyl, and to get fans ready for it, today he drops off a brand new tune titled “The Mad March.” The Rock Konducta project is being created exclusively for Madlib’s upcoming Zamrock show in San Francisco next month, and the new tune has been shared with listeners courtesy of Rappcats, who also provided the following information:

Madlib last visited San Francisco in December 2011 to debut his collaboration with Freddie Gibbs. For his return to the Bay Area, he’s put together an evening focusing on one of his favorite musical scenes from the lost but not forgotten past: the Southern African nation of Zambia’s vibrant 70s rock scene. This is the Sound of Zamrock.

Madlib has championed Zamrock’s heroes on his Beat Konducta in Africa (sampling from the likes of WITCH and Paul Ngozi); his DJ sets feature rarities from the scene; he and the rapper formerly known as Mos Def have been discussing a trip to Zambia to record a collaborative album.

At this special Madlib Medicine Show, Madlib will put together a DJ set that weaves his trademark hip-hop beats with Zamrock classics. He’s also brought WITCH’s last remaining member, bandleader Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda from Zambia to San Francisco to perform Zamrock Live for the first time to a public audience in North America.

While we all pray that Madlib and Mos Def to embark on that trip to Zambia for another collaborative effort, check out the new tune from the Madliberator down below.
