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.
Staff note from Clinton:
Ok, the original record is great (maybe with the exception of the track where the kid sings Slade over the top). It features some of Dilla's most out there and unique work but really do we need three different versions of the same short album? There's an original and alternate mix which are pretty much identical to the naked ear then if you've not had enough you can listen to the instrumental mix. Best taken in it's original form I reckon.
