With February the 7th marking what would have been the 38th birthday of the legendary James Dewit Yancey, a producer going by the name of J Dilla who needs no introduction if you follow this website or generally don’t live under a rock, and the 10th being the anniversary of his sad passing away in 2006, this week is understandably one dedicated to him.
On the 7th, which fans have begun affectionately calling ‘J Dilla Day’, the internet was awash with people posting their favourite tracks, memories and a whole host of ‘best of’ mixes. Here’s three mixes that caught our attention and are well worth your ears. Sit back and celebrate the most prolific, and arguably (definitely in my opinion) the most talented producer in hip hop.
