J Dilla (aka Jay Dee)

Jay Dee, aka J Dilla, emerged as a Hip Hop producer to be reckoned with in 1995 when his name was attached to the first single from The Pharcyde's eagerly anticipated sophomore album "Labcabincalifornia." Drop the needle on his first Pharcyde production "Runnin" and you have the launch point of a producer's career that mesmerized, titillated and expanded the domes of Hip Hop fans for the next decade. "Jay Deelicious: Originals, Remixes & Rarities" documents Jay Dilla's early production on Delicious Vinyl. Working closely with The Pharcyde Dilla was instrumental in keeping The Pharcyde's second album as ear poppin' and bugged as their maiden classic "Bizarre Ride To The Pharcyde", stepping up big time after the group parted ways with "Bizarre" producer J-Swift. In addition to original productions and remixes for "Labcabin", Dilla skillfully worked on incredible mixes for the Brand New Heavies, as well as unreleased remixes for former Heavies singer, N'Dea Davenport. From the Rhodes syncopation of "Sometimes" featuring Q-Tip, to the crazy cutting up of "Got To Give It Up" for "Saturday Night" featuring Mos Def, these gems are essential for anyone wanting a listen into Dilla's early production.
