Black Milk - Popular Demand Instrumentals (CD)


The Detroit MC/producer Black Milk first made noise producing cuts for Slum Village's 2002 mixtape DIRTY DISTRICT. Perhaps SV viewed Black Milk as the perfect J Dilla surrogate, since the young beatmaker's tracks went on to dominate the group's subsequent three albums. On POPULAR DEMAND (officially his sophomore album after his 2005 independently released SOUND OF THE CITY) Black hits listeners with 16 tracks of chunky bass, hard snares, and dreamy soul loops that play background to his slick but subtle lyricism. POPULAR DEMAND is a testament to the late great J Dilla's influence in both style and substance. It also confirms Black Milk as the foremost purveyor of the underground Motor City sound, the architect of which was Dilla himself.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!

Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested. 


We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available. 

If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to:  a) hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or, b) have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.
