Abstract Orchestra Plays Madvillainy

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Blending jazz with hip-hop beats and MCs, Abstract Orchestra recreates critically praised album Madvillainy, with Jehst, Joker Starr and Confucius MC.

In 2004, a pair of hip-hop powerhouses, MF Doom and Madlib, joined forces to create Madvillainy, a musical masterpiece that will live long in rap folklore.

With Madlib's peerless production techniques and Doom's unmistakably laid-back flow, the record has earned many accolades, appearing in numerous 'Best Albums of All Time' lists, while also inspiring a raft of new rappers and producers, including Joey Bada$$, Tyler, The Creator, Danny Brown, Flying Lotus and more.

While hip-hop fans eagerly await a follow-up to Madvillainy, there is good news for English fans of the record, as the UK's premier hip-hop big band, Abstract Orchestra, recreates the album in full across a slew of shows this autumn.

Influenced by the performances of The Roots with Jay-Z, Abstract Orchestra is made up of talented musicians who have worked with some of the biggest artists in the world. The orchestra is dedicated to honing its sound to exhibit top hip-hop recreations.
