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 Pharcydes eagerly anticipated sophomore album Labcabincalifornia. Drop the needle on his first Pharcyde production Runnin and you have the launch point of a producers career that mesmerized, titillated and expanded the domes of Hip Hop fans for the next decade. Jay Deelicious: Originals, Remixes & Rarities documents Jay Dillas early production on Delicious Vinyl. Working closely with The Pharcyde Dilla was instrumental in keeping The Pharcydes 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, NDea 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 Dillas early production.
