Splice Sounds has released The Fantastic Sounds of Jay Dee AKA J Dilla, a collection of 118 original samples from legendary producer and rapper J Dilla.
Equipped with just an MPC and a box of vinyl, Jay Dee (aka J Dilla) inspired generation after generation of beatmakers to chop up drums, dig crates for samples, and create entire works in the comfort of their bedrooms all the way to the studio.
Alongside his group Slum Village, Jay Dee honed his craft and found his voice within the underground hip hop community in Detroit. Deeply embedded in the roots of jazz, soul, R&B, Jay Dee looked to the past for inspiration and thus created a path for the future. His pluralistic, genre-bending style not only pushed music forward, it inspired his peers and the generations to come to define their own sound.
Pay homage to his years of crate digging and dig through this collection of his original sounds.
Also available are eleven Fantastic Loops Companion Pack series packs, featuring reinterpretations by Monte Booker, 88Keys, Jayda G, Mannie Fresh, Thelonious Martin, Andrés, Black Milk, Killiam Shakespeare, Cam O’bi, Stro Elliot, and Young RJ of Slum Village.
The packs are now available to Splice Sounds subscribers. New users can get 1 month free access to Splice by using promo code YT2021 when signing up for a plan.
