Pay Jay: ft. J Dilla & Frank N Dank

Well it is an open secret that I am not a fan of most of the latest J Dilla releases because a lot of stuff didn't have the quality as it usually had. Also the latest sales of part of his collection is questionable from my personal point of view.

Nevertheless exceptions prove the rule so I like to give you a fair warning of something quite dope. I am talking about the two tracker “Anthem” bw “Trucks”. Both tracks got recorded in late 2001 / early 2002 to be part of an album that features Dilla Rap over beats by Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz and others. These two tracks, were produced by Jaydee himself.

Here are some information provided by Pay Jay:
- found on 2-inch tape shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006
- mixed by engineer Dave Cooley from Los Angeles
- Cooley attempted to finalize Dilla’s vision for these tracks, while keeping all of the elements that Dilla had in place in his original demos presents
- Trucks (demo mix) features an alternate version of Dilla’s vocals and a third verse not found on Dilla’s final sessions

A1: Anthem ft. Frank N Dank
A2: Anthem (Instrumental)
A3: Anthem (A Cappella)
B1: Trucks
B2: Trucks (Instrumental)
B3: Trucks (Dilla’s Original Mix)

This limited edition 12" gets pressed on clear vinyl and comes in a printed sleeve & plastic outer sleeve.
PRE-ORDER - expected shipping date is the 15th of April


My special thanks goes out to Jaydee aka the Ummah - R.I.P. - All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only.

Slice Of Spice: SSR-014.5 ft. K-Def

K-Def is well known as one of the best producers from the 90s golden era. But also his remix skillz are off the hook and so he pimped some tracks from "not bad" to "amazing". One of those tracks is the remix of "Street Dreams". Originally produced by Poke & Tone the track got released on the second Nas album "It Was Written". The single 12" featured a remix of "Affirmative Action" while the "Street Dreams Remix" by K-Def has never been released officially.

Nevertheless the remix was available on a white label only 12 inch - no idea if this was a bootleg or just unofficially released by people involved.

In cooperation with K-Def the label Slice Of Spice Records pressed very limited test press copies but it will most probably never be released by the label. All test presses come in a stamped and hand-numbered cover signed by K-Def.

A: Street Dreams Remix (Vocal)
B: Street Dreams Remix (Instrumental)

The available pre-order copies sold out in about 2 hours - further copies will be available on the forthcoming Japan tour - maybe some leftovers right after the tour has finished?

In the second half Slice Of Spice spread further presents at minute intervals before the event ended with a big bang - BANG!. Slice Of Spice gave an insight into what's coming next:

Rare unreleased demos and remixes finally get a quality vinyl releases in form of a 2LP. Lord Finesse - "Funky Man: The Prequel" gets released on 180g in March (expected date).
