About Quasimoto

Quasimoto is the utterly bizarre alter ego of production wizard/MC Madlib (born Otis Jackson Jr.), one of the leading underground producers on the West Coast hip-hop scene. Employing free-associative raps sped up during the recording process to sound like their creator had been inhaling helium, Quasimoto is often backed by liquid-flowing jazz loops and a heavy stoner atmosphere. His first full-length under the moniker, The Unseen (2000), was greeted with generally glowing reviews, earning comparisons to legendary hip-hop eccentrics like Prince Paul and Kool Keith. He returned in 2002 with the three-song, vinyl-only EP Astronaut, followed by The Further Adventures of Lord Quas in 2005. ~ Steve Huey
