Here they are, J Dilla's instrumental cuts from the mythical Frank N Dank '48 Hours' album in their entirety on one LP thanks to the good people at Delicious Vinyl. The original album has also been re-released on LP and there's a 2CD edition with both versions too if that's how you roll.
This one is notable for its relative lack of samples, with Dilla constructing the dark, louche beats from keyboard beats and live synths that give a dark, futuristic techno-edged feel that's almost claustrophobic at times. It's certainly a slight relief when some samples do turn up to lend a little familiarity to the warm grooving 'Ma Dukes' towards the end of the record. Despite the different tack this is still unmistakably Dilla and is yet another masterclass in the subtle art of beatmaking from an era-defining hip hop talent.
