The second half of Ta-Ku’s 50 Days for Dilla project is now available for download. For 50 days Ta-Ku created a beat a day to pay tribute to his greatest influence. These beats were split into two volumes. Volume 1 was released earlier this year digitally as well as on vinyl.
Here are some great mixes by AME. They contain a lot of original samples as used by J Dilla on The Shining, Ruff Draft, Jay Loves Japan, Vintage, Welcome To Detroit and many more… I used to listen to these mixes all the time when commuting to Amsterdam.
Here’s a recently unearthed recording of the one and only Grap Luva paying tribute to Jay Dee over a replay of “Nag Champa” at the 2008 XM/Subsoniq Dilla Day. Props to K. Murdock for the amazing quality of this LIVE stage recording.
