This is not my music, nor is it new. But would like to share it anyway. English producer/dj Bullion made this bootleg album in ’07 and in one swift move not only skillfully pays tribute to J Dilla‘s sampling collage masterpiece Donuts but does so while cutting up an album from an ENTIRELY different galaxy – harmonic vocal pop classic Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys (1966). Real clever and funky. Matter of fact with all the Dilla inspired producers out there, I haven’t heard somebody come as close to the man himself as Bullion on this project.
For all open-minded music lovers and definitely for the beatheads and Jay Dee/Dilla fans (check J chilling with the B(each) Boys on the cover..)
I know, it’s been exactly 2 weeks since my last post. That’s too long, you’re right. But fear not, my dear friend, we’re back. Here’s an exclusive preview of a new tune I’ve been concocting with the one dem call Mr.Windmill:
Let me know if you like it. Dj’s/labels pls get in touch for a high qual mp3. Oh, and that voice you hear belongs to Herbie Hancock. It’s off a 7″ vinyl instructional record from the 70s about the Fender Rhodes piano, as recently posted by NZ artist/dj Recloose
