It’s almost 10 years since the sad passing of a legend that was taken way too young! 

Everyone’s favourite beat maker. We’ve got DJs / producers / collectors playing special Jay Dee dedicated sets to include his beats, raps, samples, influences and ‘post-Dilla’ sounds, including their own productions.

James Yancey aka Jay-Dee aka J-Dilla, created a new sound for Hip-Hop that inspired beat smiths, MCs and music lovers around the globe. With an incredible line of production credits for De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, The Pharcyde, The Roots, Janet Jackson, Busta Rhymes, Common, D’Angelo, Jaylib, his own crew Slum Village and so many more it is little wonder that he has been described as a visionary, a genius & the quintessential producers’ producer by many of the most respected names in the game. 

Dilla’s albums “Rough Draft” & “Donuts” on Stones Throw, “Welcome 2 Detroit” & “The Shining” on BBE Records alongside “Jay Loves Japan” and his work on his brother Illa-J’s album “Yancey Boys” stand out as masterpieces of modern music production and capture the imagination of producers, DJs & all music lovers across the world.
