J Dilla - The King Of The Beats (LP)

$24.99

Jay Dee a.k.a. J Dilla is widely regarded as one of the greatest producers in hip hop history. The E-Mu Systems SP-1200 drum machine and sampler was the first electronic instrument Jay Dee worked with while crafting the incomparable styles and sounds which defined the early stages of his legendary production. The SP-1200 was his primary tool of choice at the inception of his career as he created classics for early Slum Village, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes and many others. However, as his career moved forward Dilla began to work on an Akai MPC. And that’s the focus of this collection. The 15 cuts featured on this vinyl edition are from the groundbreaking “Batches” collection, but were crafted by Dilla using the MPC.

The MPC Dilla utilized to create the material heard here was recently donated to the Smithsonian for their National Museum of African American History and Culture scheduled to open to the public in 2016.

This release is more than a collection of Dilla’s unheard works, it’s a glimpse inside the mind of a creative genius, a view into Dilla’s artistic process and a must have for any who call themselves a fan of his musical legacy.
