Jay Deelicious The Delicious Vinyl Years 95-98
documents Jay Dilla’s
early production work 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 out 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!
