Jay Dee, aka J Dilla, emerged as a Hip Hop producer to be
reckoned with in 1995 when his name was attached to the
first single from The Pharcyde’s eagerly anticipated
sophomore album “Labcabincalifornia”. Hit play on his first
Pharcyde production “Runnin” and you have the launch
point of a producer’s career that mesmerized, titillated and
expanded the domes of Hip Hop fans for the next decade.
“Jay Deelicious: Originals, Remixes & Rarities” documents
Jay Dilla’s early production on Delicious Vinyl.
Working closely with The Pharcyde and Michael “Mike Floss” Ross, (Delicious Vinyl’s founder), Jay Dee
was instrumental in keeping The Pharcyde’s second album as ear poppin’ and bugged as their maiden
classic “Bizarre Ride To The Pharcyde”, stepping up big time after the group parted ways with “Bizarre”
producer J-Swift. In addition to original productions and remixes for “Labcabin”, Jay Dee skillfully
worked with the label on incredible mixes for the Brand New Heavies, as well as unreleased remixes for
former BNH singer, N’Dea Davenport. From the jazzed out Rhodes syncopation of “Sometimes”
featuring Q-Tip, to the crazy cutting up of “Got To Give It Up” for “Saturday Night” featuring Mos Def,
Jay Dee shows there’s no tempo he can’t freak on some otherworldly jazzed up funk tip. So put on your
head phones and take a trip into the early work of a Hip Hop master
