“In this episode, we celebrate legendary producer J Dilla, who has worked with The Roots, Common, Erykah Badu, Janet Jackson and A Tribe Called Quest. Then we join musician friends J. Rocc, DJ Spinna, Frank Nitt and Grap Luva in Detroit to open Dilla’s storage locker, never-before-seen to the public.”
Check out this soulful mix all based on the classic soultrack by Eddie Kendrick; Intimate Friends. You might be surprised on who used the sample. It’s super SOULFUL. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Check out the track list after the jump.
DJ Corey Grand & DJ WarrenPEACE bring us this weeks Mixtape Mondays pick, Erykah Badu’s Greatest Vibes Mix. And this mix is just that! I love hearing mixes like this that take an artists best hits from several albums and are able to create a whole new sound and new order like you’ve never heard them before. Thank you DJs for sharing this mix with us!
I came across this mix a while back and I totally forgot to post it. But it seems like I was supposed to wait until now to post it. The weather is getting cold and this is the perfect mix to throw on, grab a blanket and cuddle with that special someone. This mix of smoothed out Neo Soul is mixed for us by JWill. Check the tracklist after the jumpWe hope you enjoy it… Love is love.
In 2010, Erykah Badu sampled “Arrow Through Me” by Wings on a track called “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long” on her new album ‘New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh’. When I first heard this song, not only was it an instant favorite but it also reminded me of “Other Side of the Game” off her 1997 album ‘Baduism’. Understanding that her man has to get his hustle on and that she is going to be there loving him when he returns. We hope you enjoy this song along with this whole album…it was produced by J Dilla, ?uestlove, James Poyser, Madlib, 9th Wonder, Sa-Ra, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Karriem Riggins.
Created in 2006, this remembrance piece is created as a tribute to the memory and legacy of James “J.Dilla” Yancey. This is a piece designed for his fans and supporters who knew of his accomplishments before February 2006 and those that have grown to appreciate his genius. Here, we gain a greater insight and understanding about our musical icon.
