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, Joey Bada$$, Masta Ace, Masta Killa, Bishop Nehru and more. Here, the super-villain puts the spotlight on his production with the release of Special Blends, Vol. 1 & 2. Originally self-released in extremely limited quantities back in 2004, and mixed by DOOM himself, Special Blends Vol. 1 & 2 pairs vintage DOOM-produced Special Herbs instrumentals with a range of iconic hip-hop and R&B vocals.
