J Dilla
Ruff Draft

J DILLA is back from the dead with what I think is a reissue of the 'Ruff Draft' LP. Nothing like cashing in on a mans death eh? Just kidding. This was originally released in 2003 on his own Mummy Records label. 'Nothing Like This' has just come on. It's a fucking corker of a track that I been ...view item »

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...view item »

J Dilla
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 ta...view item »

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 w...view item »

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 ...view item »

J Dilla
Donuts (picture sleeve edition)

Donuts is a true modern classic, one of the crowning moments of J Dilla’s all-too-short career. For creative, super-fresh beat-making, Dilla just can’t be beat, especially here, where he is at the peak of his powers. For ...view item »

J Dilla
Donuts

I was a latecomer to Dilla.  A friend copied me Donuts a couple of years back, I went a bit mental for it if truth be told, and I listened to the thing to death.  And then I simply couldn't find the copied CD of it anywhere for about nine months, until I went to listen to Quasi Objects by Matmos a couple of...view item »

J Dilla
Jay Dee's Ma Dukes Collection

Since his death in 2006 J Dilla’s prolific beats have continued to be released from the vaults primarily thanks to his mother, Yancey Media Group, and the sheer levels of productivity he kept at. Mad available on vinyl for the first time this is yet another collection of must have boom bap from the master himself....view item »

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 arch...view item »

J Dilla
Motor City

Look, more previously unheard J Dilla material! Motor City is a new collection assembled by Dilla’s mother Ma Dukes as a loving tribute to her son. The first editions of Motor City (hurry while stocks last!) comes housed in a mailing envelope with a handwritten familial m...view item »

J Dilla
Lost Tapes, Reels + More

There is a temptation to be dubious about the seemingly endless series of 'newly discovered' Dilla tracks, surely we should be hearing the splintering of the barrel as we get to discarded 5 second loops that he was throwing out as nothing more than studio messing? With a lesser producer, then yes, we would be on pretty thin gruel by now, if we w...view item »

J Dilla
The King Of Beats II

Fresh from appearing in my dream last night here's the latest offering from the late beat maker and hip-hop production genius. This is a selection of recordings he made using his Akai MPC sampler. The device he used has now been donated to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture so this is also a historical a...view item »

J Dilla
The Diary Instrumentals

The Diary caused a storm among beat-heads recently when it was pulled out from some forgotten corner: this album from the dearly departed J Dilla was long thought lost. Now we have the instrumental versions of the whole album, featuring production work from Madlib and Nottz, among other...view item »

J Dilla
Jay Love Japan

Plenty of J Dilla material coming through at the moment: this set was initially released in 2008, but in such a slim edition that few heard it. Shame, as Jay Love Japan is A-grade Dilla, split halfway between instrumentals and tracks boosted by vocals from Blu, Exile an...view item »

Jay Dee aka J Dilla
Jay Deelicious: The Delicious Vinyl Years

Jay Dee / J Dilla had a hell of a career during his brief time, and this compilation (stretched over a full triple LP set) gathers up a load of his earlier productions. Those include work with Pharcyde, Mos Def and Q-Tip, as well as a number of stand-alone beat ...view item »

J Dilla
The Diary

Listen up beat-fans: a whole full-length album of J Dilla material, previously utterly unreleased. And get this: Dilla is on the MC duties here, spitting bars over productions by the likes of Madlib and Karriem Riggins. The Diary is thus a very fresh look at another sid...view item »

The Shining Pt. 2 / The Last

Despite his sad passing some years ago, J Dilla’s beats still sound fresh and full of life, and listeners are still discovering the majesty of his catalogue. Here we actually have some previously unreleased Dilla tracks, which MC Magnif has been sitting on for years. Typically strong ...view item »

J Dilla
Give Them What They Want

Wow these dead hip hop legends sure can be productive, here is another Dilla record based on work he had started but polished up posthumously. Give them what they want is a decent, bumping hip hop beat, as is The Doe on the flip. It's recognisably Dilla, but releases like this can ruin the legacy of the deceased, this...view item »

J Dilla
Donuts 45 boxset

There are very few hip hop heads, professional or otherwise, who do not owe a debt of gratitude to J Dilla. His eclectic beat making style has influenced everyone from Roots linchpin Questlove to beat-scene kingpin Flying Lotus. Released only three days before his death, much of Do...view item »

J Dilla
Diamonds & Ice

Big J Dee returns from the grave to deliver a second 12” of ultra reliable cuts on Pay Jay as part of J Dilla’s vocal album ‘The Diary’ campaign. ‘Anthems/Truck’ was not only deliciously deluxe it was also a worthy listen that sat on my deck for a week on pure repeat. Now ...view item »

J Dilla
Anthem / Trucks

For all the diehard fans out there, there’s always new gems popping up. This here is one of J Dilla’s earliest recordings, featuring himself at the production tables.

J Dilla
Music From The Lost Scrolls Vol. 1

Since Dilla died in 2006 there have been more posthumous releases than humous releases. I wonder if that’s happened with the likes of Elvis yet? Anyway ‘Donuts’ is considered a total classic in the world of instrumental hip hop and is often touted as one of the best albums of its ilk ever. S...view item »

J Dilla
Donut Shop

As far as production legends go, Dilla is one of the most feted in the hip-hop & R&B world. His sample-delic work is some of the funkiest, freshest & most groovesome in the history of contemporary black music, it's a damn shame he isn't here to add his stamp of approval to this buzzing Serato endorsed release. The unreleased instrume...view item »

Supreme Team [ Madlib ] / J Dilla ft MF Doom & Guilty Simpson
See/ Mash's Revenge

Madlib/ J Dilla/ Guilty Simpson
Take it Back

Got a tasty MADLIB / GUILTY SIMPSON 12" produced by the late J DILLA (R.I.P). 'Take It Back' has a bizzare quirky sound that sounds like that cheeky grey dog puppet Sweep. The beats are pretty solid and Madlib's flow is up to his usual high standards. There's some cop car noises in the mix too to keep it street. This...view item »
