J Dilla – The King Of The Beats (2xCD)


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. During this period, he created classics for early Slum Village, The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, among many others.

After careful study and curation this one of a kind collection compiles the well-deserved documentation of Jay Dee's early musical masterpieces. Ma Dukes assembled a team of industry family who spent nine months working daily to bring this project to J Dilla fans everywhere.

''The King Of Beats'' feature's 40 tracks from Jay Dee's groundbreaking 'Batches' created using his SP-1200. In addition the CD release contains “The Lost Scrolls” and an additional 15 cuts created by Dilla on his MPC which was recently donated to the Smithsonian for their National Museum of African American History and Culture scheduled to open to the public in 2016.

“The King Of Beats” 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
