    Default Jay Dee/Jay Dilla

    What stuff is worth checking out?

    Currently:

    D'Angelo: Voodoo
    Common: Like Water for Chocolate

    seem to stand out.

    Just a few recommendations- the best stuff- would be helpful.
    ie The Jaylib thing looks crap....

    Thx

    Default don't sleep on the champion sound

    I don't know about u guys but I really dig the jaylib album... seriously... u should give it a couple spins before you write it off woebot, it's not some quick-cash dangerdoom collabo. There's a new jay dilla dropping on stonesthrow soon or maybe already called "donuts" or something I'm keen to hear.


    Speaking of Stones Throw... anyone else feelin OH-NO's production? Madlib's little brother and one of my favourite hip hop producers lately, plus his "disrupt" album was straight up dopeness... great rhymes, great beats & no bullshit posturing.

    he didnt really do anything on the voodoo album as far as i remember - the essential stuff he's produced is:

    slum village - fantastic vol 2 (try and find the vol 1 bootleg too though)
    j88 - ep
    a tribe called quest - the love movement (he co produced virtually all of it)
    a tribe called quest - beats rhymes and life
    j dilla - welcome to detroit

    also worth finding -
    common - like water for chocolate
    common - electric circus

    theres various productions like de la soul - stakes is high that are great but the quintessential 'dilla' sound is basically fantastic vol 2

    Hip-Hop producer/MC Jay Dee, also known as J Dilla, has reported passed away earlier today (February 10) in a hospital in Los Angeles, due to liver complications.

    I reckon the Jaylib album is great too. I was never that big a Madlib fan, so was pleasantly surprised by how this turned out. Tracks like 'The Red' are just huge.

    Default Sad

    This is a sad day for hip hop. When we learn the news yesterday, we spent a whole hour trying to confirm if he had indeed passed or not...that made finding out EVEN WORSE. Rest In Eternal Peace, J Dilla. One.

    So how exactly did he die? I haven't heard anything more than "liver complications."

    Anyway, new one Donuts is pretty sweet. It's more about cutting up lots of old soul samples than heavy beats (the heaviest of which, to third others, can be found on Jaylib)

    "Donuts" is fantastic, sounds like everything the last Quasimoto album should have been. This is incredibly sad news, though.
