Album artwork for Champion Sound by Jaylib

Jay Dee's characteristically bass-heavy breaks and Madlib's wonderfully off-kilter quasi-organic dutchery compliment each other perfectly, and their best moments here easily rank among their personal highs.Madlib-produced "McNasty Filth" assume's the role of party track and just kills, alternately flaunting organ and baritone sax drones before upshifting into some vaguely Prefusian cut-ups and a hi-hat's violent treble attacks. Title-track "Champion Sound", also produced by Madlib, comes peppered with ample fuzz and an offbeat chorus of "Wah!" while orbiting a sultry female vocal sample. "Strip Club" is the album's most amusing track, a quirky steel drum sample reminiscent of Super Mario 2 backing a brilliant dialogue between the duo in which Quasimoto plays a stripper offering deeper intimacy: "I can touch you and you can touch me."
