Mad beat-drama here, combining the killer skills of Madlib and J Dilla to form Jaylib! The duo trade beat-making and rap-rhyming skills over the course of the album, which was first released in 2003. Needless to say, each excel in both practices. Champion Sound is a double LP, reissued on the Stones Throw label.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 14th February 2018
This album is the kind of collaboration that is more of a competition, featuring both producers trying to outdo each other with loud, bass heavy, head bobbing, all-out dope beats. Jay Dilla is known for his soulful Detroit bounce, and Madlib (here, at least) employs a kind of wobbly, throbbing, jazz sound. They are both going for similar things in production, sometimes going the far east route, sometimes taking jazz loops or mangled soul loops, but usually relying on the thumping drum tracks instead of rich musical loops.
