J Dilla Vinyl, CD & tapes by J Dilla at Norman Records

In the modern era there is no hip-hop producer more iconic than J Dilla. Tragically taken from us in 2006 at the age of just 32, in his lifetime the one born James Yancey fundamentally altered the course of hip-hop music and many other genres besides...read more »

Slum Village
The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition)

The billionth posthumous J Dilla release is also a celebration of his early group Slum Village. Their LP Fantastic, Volume 2 was actually released at the turn of the Millennium, but since recording was completed in 1998 this year marks a twentieth anniversary for the record. The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition) presents previously unreleased bootlegs, remixes, solo tracks and demos cut by Dee, Baatin and T3 during the Fantastic sessions. They are all, of course, the crispest of jams from the neo-soul/hip-hop nexus.

Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix) The Instrumentals

The late J Dilla recently had his cult classic Ruff Draft EP reissued by Pay Jay as a new edition that foregrounded the mixes he preferred, but never released. Now those new versions are available sans vox on this instrumental record. Of course, they are impeccable beats - this is Jay Dee we’re talking about after all.

J Dilla
Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix)

Just when one gets to thinking that the annals of J Dilla’s discography couldn’t be combed any more, we get another posthumous release from the MPC grandmaster. This one’s a souped-up re-rendering of his cult classic Ruff Draft EP from back in 2003. It features new mixes of the original track list as well as bonus tracks, alternative takes and some illuminating liner notes. On the 2xvinyl release you get the original LP on one wax, the producer's alternative takes on the other.

Jaylib
Champion Sound: The Remix

Where Madlib and J Dilla come together, beatheads collapse left right and centre from sheer amazed joy. This release has Madlib remixing Dilla’s Champion Sound track, as well as a previously unheard collaboration that dates back to the pair’s original Jaylib sessions. Double LP on Stones Throw.

J Dilla
Donuts

Now an absolute stone cold classic, Donuts was initially an album written out of necessity as James Yancey was hospitalised at the time with the disease that would eventually kill him and without his usual studio tools he was forced into making beat tape-like collages. The album was released three days before his death and its magpie-like scattershot approach to beatmaking and sampling has since been used by...well... pretty much everyone.  

J Dilla
Jay Dee aka King Dilla

It is frankly astonishing that previously unreleased J Dilla tracks are still being unearthed today, more than a decade after his death; and even more astonishing that they can still be of such extremely high quality. Jay Dee aka King Dilla is a set of eight very fine beat tracks from the Ne’Astra Music Group archives: enjoy. Vinyl release.

J Dilla
Ruff Draft Instrumentals

Still the latest and greatest, one of the many high-points of J Dilla’s career was undoubtedly 2003’s Ruff Draft. Originally released as an EP under the name Jay Dee, Stones Throw fleshed the record out to album length on the 2007 edition. The record's success was forged on some of Dilla’s very best beats. All facets of his style are represented here - classy soul-jazz loops, wiggly low-end workouts and stark drum machine experiments all feature. This Stones Throw reissue of the Ruff Draft Instrumentals allow you to luxuriate in his talent once again.
